Chiefs-Broncos one-liners

Kansas City's coach Haley pats Denver coach McDaniels' head after the Chiefs win in Kansas City, Missouri

Tamba Hali’s strip sack of Kyle Orton helped the Chiefs hold on for a 10-6 win over the Broncos on a blustery day in Kansas City.

Todd Haley not only shook Josh McDaniels’ hand after the game, he patted him on the head.

The Chiefs are ahead of schedule when it comes to playing meaningful games again:   “We see the beginning of the foundation of the team that can perhaps compete for championships,” Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt. “Whether that will be this year or not, we don’t know yet. It’s going to be exciting to see what happens in the next six or seven weeks.”

With Brandon Flowers suffering another injury, cornerback Brandon Carr had a shutdown day for the young Chiefs secondary.

Haley’s decision to pass on a field goal early in the second half didn’t come back to haunt him.

Josh McDaniels made an oddly timid decision to punt with under four minutes left; the decision backfired on him.

Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey had a terrific effort shutting down Dwayne Bowe and making big plays.

The Broncos lost for only the second time in team history when a running back went over 160 yards.  Knowshon Moreno pulled the trick.

Denver’s offense and defense just don’t know how to complement one another.

Kyle Orton suffered through his most inaccurate day as a Bronco during a frigid day in Kansas City.

    mcdaniels decision to punt….and the refs blowing the play dead while moreno was bustin out a 1st down cost the broncos the game.
    both bad calls !

    The play that was blown dead was the one that killed me! Instead of at least near a 1st down it is 3rd and 18?? That’s an awful quick whistle…. you HAVE to let those plays play out, they were calling it practically the second someone had a finger on Orton.

    If that’s really how they call them, then that amazing play by Rothlesberger in the sunday nighter to get the ball thrown away before they scored their TD should have been blown dead for a sack too.

    Not that we know for sure or not they would have scored points on the drive, but that totally killed their last chance to win it.

    The Broncos moved the ball but didn’t score…that’s what cost them the game.

    But if you want to talk about bad calls try the one where Bowe was flagged for supposedly pushing Chump Bailey.

    I will agree that the “in the grasp” call was bogus.

    Very poorly officiated game all the way around.

    GO CHIEFS. They should of blew the donks out but horrible penalties held them back.

    Skilled lip readers ascertained that Haley was saying “Get that fat face outta my house, Gosh”, as he put his hand on McDaniel’s head.

    Actually, for those who saw the exchange, it also included an uncomfortable and seemingly insincere hug as well, initiated by Haley.

    Guessing Haley recognized Josh will be gone soon enough and that was likely their last post-game salute.

    If this were Peyton/Eli, there would be entire blog posts dedicated to the juicy brother vs. brother battle. However, you don’t even give the heated Colquitt brother battle a mention in the one-liners?

    Dustin Colquitt vs. Britton Colquitt will go down as the greatest sibling rivalry in punting history. You might as well jump on board and lead the hype train.

    chiefs coach made several brutal decisions which was the reason this game that should have been a kc blowout was close right to the end. including passing on 2 sure field goals as well as going on 4th and goal from the half yard line and having your qb sacked on the 20 straight back instead of if even failing on a quarterback sneak you’d still have denver bottled in at their half yardline not give them the ball at the 20. plus bseveral other butterfinger jobs by cassel as he nearly gave denver ball some more on unforced turnovers because chiefs haley’s reckless play calling!

    If that’s Roethlisberger the whistle doesn’t get blown. And Moreno might have gained 40. Totally bogus.

    Careful, the Steeler Nation Officiating Lynch Mob has been going door-to-door on these articles. You don’t need to incite them any further.

    I Was actually at this game and in a debate with a Chiefs fan, even used Roethlisberger as an example as to why that play should not have been blown dead. Great play (maybe the only on he made on the day) by Orton. And then last night Roethlisberger makes one of his miracle escapes against the Ravens and the whistle is never blown. This may not have cost the game but it was HUGE. Moreno had a ton of room to run. Ugly game.

    The Chiefs squeak one out against the Bronco’s.

    Wow, that’s really impressive, if you live in KC.

    If we’re going to talk about bad calls, how about “the catch”? I think it was Bowe, catches the ball, gets both feet down…… 6 feet out of bounds and the official calls it good. Being a Chiefs fan I would have gladly taken that, but i was at the other end of the stadium and I could see he was o.b. Then the replay took 10 minutes, guy behind me was yelling at the ref about how Helen Keller knew 10 minutes ago that he was out of bounds.

    Chiefs got plenty of bad calls and no calls. Hali was getting dragged around in circles by the O linmen all day.

    McCluster’s run called back on a non foul.

    the refs are bad period and have been all year.

    The Chiefs have won more games this year than the past two seasons combined. Any win is impressive.

    This was a hard game to watch. If the Chiefs weren’t involved I would have turned it off.

    Big game on Sunday, win and the Chiefs are squarely in the drivers seat for the division, lose, and it’s back to the status quo. But if you told me while I laying by the pool in August that the Chiefs would be playing meaningful December games I would have laughed.
