Colts-Chiefs one-liners

With Joseph Addai (shoulder/neck) and Donald Brown (hamstring) out against the Chiefs, Colts RB Mike Hart stepped up for 50 yards on 11 carries, including an 11-yard touchdown run.
The Colts held their opponent out of the end zone Sunday for the first time since November 22 of 2009.
Colts WR Austin Collie (foot) was “clearly operating at less than full speed” in Sunday’s win.
The win moved Indianapolis to 2-0 at home and into a first-place tie in the AFC South.

The Chiefs finally used Jamaal Charles as their feature back in Week Five, with Charles receiving 19 touches compared to “starter” Thomas Jones’ eight.

According to the Kansas City Star, Chiefs DE Glenn Dorsey and LB Tamba Hali “are emerging as consistent forces” under new defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, while CB Brandon Flowers is “playing at a Pro Bowl level.”
Chiefs coach Todd Haley’s gambling style didn’t pay off on Sunday.
An arm injury to OT Branden Albert forced OG Brian Waters to play left tackle for the first time in his career.
Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe dropped multiple passes against the Colts, including a certain touchdown pass.

    That was a brutal decision by Haley, trying a 51 yard FG, instead of going for it on 4th & 2.
    The Chiefs are definitely improved though.

    Haley made multiple decisions that were complete head-scratchers… that was the first Chiefs game I had seen since he was hired. I now see why he is under such heavy scrutiny.
    Any single decision he made could have been defended (the on-side kick, going for it on 4th in the first quarter instead of kicking the FG, the FG at the end of the game, etc, etc) but all of them combined? That’s just reckless incompetence.
    No one can guarantee they would have won had he changed all of those calls… but Haley guaranteed they would lose by making them.

    Haley made one bad call in that game going for it on 4th in the first quarter instead of kicking the FG, and the FG at the end of the game was questionable after being aggressive all day.
    None the less, the chiefs are clearly for real, peyton had hard times moving the ball… Haley will be around for a while, cassel maybe not, go chiefs

    I’ll tip my hat to the Chefs, I think they’re a legitimate squad but that awful QB will hold them back a little. Haley’s decisions might be questionable but at least hes being AGGRESIVE and doing everything he can to win. Id much rather see that from a coach than what we get here from that emotion-less puppet Caldwell!!

    “Haley made multiple decisions that were complete head-scratchers… that was the first Chiefs game I had seen since he was hired. I now see why he is under such heavy scrutiny.”
    Pretty sure he’s not under heavy scrutiny. We’re 3-1. I like the aggressive play. The first 3 games of the season, we were on the positive sides of a lot of those breaks – relax. I think these calls are getting blown a little out of proportion. If the onside kick works and we go down and score – it’s genius. It didn’t so some talk trash about it…
    Bla – I like where we’re headed.

    Dwayne Bowe cost them the game..
    The WR has one job, catch the ball. And he failed to do that.
    If he was a firefighter, the house would burn down, and people would be dead.

    No one including me expected the Chiefs to win this game. The fact that they were even “in it” shows how far they have come. To hold one of the top five all-time QB’s (arguably) to zero touchdown passes shows the defense is legit.
    Good win Indy, you may see the Chiefs again.
