Chiefs finish uncanny climb to the top

Charles Getty Images

Lost in the Broncos’ inability to outscore the Colts was the fact that the outcome left only one undefeated team in the AFC West, the AFC, and the NFL.

A year after going 2-14, the Chiefs are the last unbeaten team standing, at 7-0.

And so the Chiefs claim the top spot in the PFT power rankings, unless and until they lose.

A loss may not be coming this weekend, given that the Browns will be limping into Arrowhead Stadium.  After that, the Chiefs will get a bit of a test at Buffalo.

And then it gets interesting.  Following a Week 10 bye, it’ll be Broncos-Chargers-Broncos in a 15-day span.

The Chiefs then finish with three of four on the road, at Oakland, Washington, and San Diego.  In Week 16, the Colts come to town.

While it’s still way too early for the ’72 Dolphins to worry about not being able to pop their champagne, the Chiefs this year will unexpectedly get the honors of being the team, if any, that allows the cork to be fired into the mouth of Mercury Morris.

    That’s Right baby! The Chiefs are #1. Our Defense is Ferocious! Thanks Chiefs for Giving Your Fans an Awesome 2013 So Far!

    Go Chiefs!!!!!

    Still can’t believe most people in Philly couldn’t wait to get rid of this guy. Total class act. And never got caught cheating like those guys in New England and New Orleans. Makes ya wonder if he’d still be in Philly had the 2004 Superbowl not been tainted…

  6. realfootballfan says: Oct 22, 2013 11:32 AM

    That looks like a 13-3 record at the worst. If they do finish ahead of the Broncos, it might be the best thing that could happen to them. Manning’s only Super Bowl came when his team was pretty much seen as an after thought.

  7. jimthebuilder27 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:34 AM

    It’s easy to see why…they now have a serviceable QB in Alex Smith (Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn HAHAHA) and a better coach (Reid is an enormous upgrade over Romeo Crennel who’s a good assistant but a terrible, terrible head coach)

  8. footballchic777 says: Oct 22, 2013 11:35 AM

    So in other words, it will be week 9 before they ever play a team with a winning record?

  9. assuredmutualdestruction says: Oct 22, 2013 11:39 AM

    Chiefs look great. If they can beat Denver and get homefield in the playoffs they might have a chance…ah, what am I saying. They’ll probably implode against the Broncos and Chargers as always. This team hasn’t seen any adversity yet. Until that time, I’m still not a believer.

  10. 6ball says: Oct 22, 2013 11:49 AM

    .

    No disrespect to Andy Reid, but the KC roster he inherited was pretty good. Injuries without adequate backup depth, and the lack of consistent QB play have set the team back in previous years.

    Both the Bronco’s and Chiefs have a cream puff schedule and both teams are going nowhere, fast.

    What a difference even a fairly good QB can make…

    Sure, they will begin a little losing skid soon, probably getting swept by Denver and losing to San Diego, the Redskins, Raiders, and Colts, but they will make the playoffs.

    Why in the world didn’t Minnesota go after Alex Smith???

    Cue the chiefs haters! Here’s the simple fact, all of you saying Chiefs aren’t that great, ask yourself this:

    Would you want your favorite team to come to Arrowhead and play against our defense?

    We’re on pace to shatter the sacks record… Your starting QB definitely doesn’t want to.

    Oh and for what it’s worth, we’re the loudest stadium in the world.

    Drink some more haterade! GO CHIEFS!!!

    After 7 weeks, using the “weak schedule” or “only wins vs. teams with losing records” argument is stupid, and is only used to confirm your confirmation bias. If the Chiefs weren’t a great team, in an any given sunday league, the Chiefs would have lost by now.

    Don’t even look at the stats that show a historically good defense. Don’t look at a near best in the league turnover ratio. Don’t pay attention to our RB who is dominating yards from scrimmage consistently.

    Watch the games. See how the halftime adjustments are allowing this team to beat anyone the face. See how our pressure on the QB can take control of a game and fluster a QB. (even manning gets flustered. remember sunday?)

    The Chiefs are a great, well-coached team.

    They haven’t beat anyone with a winning record? Fun fact: Most of the teams in the league right now have a losing record.

    They’re beating the teams they’re supposed to beat. They’re #1 until they lose.

    Was it stupid a couple years ago when the Chiefs got off to that hot start and then got smashed in the playoffs at Arrowhead when they had to actually play a good team?

    I’m reading a lot of negative comments here about the Chiefs…. mostly from squatters from other teams who have nothing good to say about their own teams on their own blogs… so they go to other teams blogs to try and see what they can do spoil someone else’s good time.

    Yes, the Chiefs are not perfect. No, the odds are against them making it to the Super Bowl. That being said, it just makes this year all the more fun. And that’s what it is REALLY about.

    I don’t know about you squatting losers, but I watch football and support my team because it’s fun. And there is damned little in football as much fun as seeing a team that has been in the doldrums turn it around and be competitive the way the Chiefs have this year. I’m a Niners fan, and I.m having a blast watching the Chiefs (you can damned near legitimately call them our sister team) suddenly making everyone pay attention.

    Go Chiefs!!!

  27. earpaniac says: Oct 22, 2013 1:08 PM

    While I don’t think the Chiefs will go undefeated, I do think they’re a very good team. It was just 2 years ago, with largely the same players, this was supposed to be the new “it” team. The 2 reasons that didn’t happen were terrible coaching and QB play. Both of those have been fixed this year.

  28. chiefstl says: Oct 22, 2013 1:13 PM

    Maybe you should use an equally useful method to do Power Rankings; I suggest doing them Alphabetically.

    ———–
    Most importantly, that’s a completely different team. They have the same logo, and a few players that weren’t developed back then, that’s it. You don’t see me comparing the Broncos to the 6-0 start under Josh McDaniels do you? But, I’ll bite:

    I’m pretty sure you’re talking about the 2010 team. Everyone knew that team had problems. They didn’t have a formula. Also, that team lacked talent. 2010 had a team that had a lot of lucky bounces their way. The difference in 2013 is the team has very developed talent, and they are maintaining control of the games. You can see that they’re playing well. It isn’t pretty on offense, but you can see what they’re doing is very methodical.

    Let me ask you this. Tell me the teams that are better than the Chiefs that you can’t apply the weak schedule argument to or that haven’t lost to bad teams. Give me a team you think is better than the Chiefs that doesn’t fall into one of those two categories. Probably only Seattle, and they’ve been barley beating bad teams as well. (I don’t subscribe to that viewpoint, but people use it against the Chiefs, so let’s be fair)

    Also, please tell me who the Chiefs have to beat for you to think they’re one of the best, say, top 3?

    Very true, but I think that is the difference between good coaching and bad coaching. The same was true with San Francisco back in 2011. Harbaugh did not build that 13-3 team, but he found the right way to use the talent he inherited.

But Seattle is consistently louder

  35. stealthjunk says: Oct 22, 2013 1:44 PM

    The funny thing is that, among other bonehead plays, if Ronnie Hillman doesn’t fumble the ball on goal line at the end of the game, everyone would still be slobbering over Peyton Manning and the Broncos today. It’s incredible that the Broncos made so many mistakes and still would have won that game if not for that final mistake on a day that was full of them.

  36. jayhawk6 says: Oct 22, 2013 1:44 PM

    @6ball–Andy Reid and John Dorsey have made all the difference.

    The locker is no longer Stalag 17–there is a feeling of all for one and one for all.

    Yes, Big Red inherited a lot of talent, but the atmosphere of the Pioli years vs. the attitude now is as vast as the difference between Death Valley and Niagara Falls.

    lol to be top 3? Well first, start beating some top 10 teams. The Chiefs haven’t played or beaten a single team worth mentioning. Beat some teams like The Patriots, Broncos, Packers, Bengals, Colts, Seahawks, Saints, or the 49ers. If you are able to beat more than one of those teams, then you will start entering the conversation as one of the best teams or top 3 teams.

    “In the fourth quarter, as the Chiefs fans were celebrating their victory, all of the sudden it peaked at 137.5 decibels,” Philip Robertson, the Guinness World Record adjudicator noted. “They screamed for an incredibly long time, probably longer than what I heard in Seattle.”

    From a Broncos fan; I don’t know how long this streak will last or how deep into the playoffs you’ll go, but there is no escaping the fact that KC is the “Fun” story of the year. Everyone in the NFL should be enjoying this. To go from 2-14 and the top pick in the draft to the only undefeated team and #1 in some power rankings should be a blast for any fan. They are a true Feel Good story in a league that really needs one about now. I say good for you KC, and we in Denver look forward to some epic games this year.

    I like how you mention they haven’t played any teams “worth mentioning” but you still hold the fact that they haven’t beaten any teams “worth mentioning” against them.

    Let’s use your schedule argument against your list here.
    NE lost to CIN who is average who lost to CLE who is awful.
    DEN has the second easiest schedule in the league so far, and lost to IND, who lost to MIA who isn’t that good.
    GB lost to CIN who lost to CLE who is bad.
    IND lost to MIA who isn’t good.
    SEA lost to IND and have only beaten one team with a winning record :(
    NO lost to NE who lost to NYJ
    SF got stomped by IND who lost to MIA who sucks.

    Most of those teams’ combined opponents records are losing records.

    The best part? None of that means anything. None of that means these teams aren’t good. I’m making a point that if you apply schedule logic to good teams, you can still paint them in a negative light. Who you lost to, haven’t beaten, or schedule tells you how good a team is. Those teams are finding ways to win MOST of their games. That’s what makes a good team in this league. Kind of like the Chiefs. Good teams beat bad teams consistently. It’s about the overall body of work.

    I used to be skeptical of winning teams that have played weak schedules, but I’ve changed my mind.
    As a Steelers fan, I’ve discovered that “weak” or “easy” schedules guarantee nothing. Last season, the Steelers were 8-8 against the weakest schedule in the league. Even this season, their schedule hasn’t been all that difficult; yet they are 2-4.
    The NFL is a “coaches league,” and Andy Reid has made a difference, just as Sean Payton is making a difference in New Orleans…

    ———————–

    As much crap as I’m giving you otherwise, it’s only fair that I agree with you here.

    You’re right that Arrowhead was actually built to trap crowd noise. Just like Seattle was. Seattle has some more tricks in the construction, but either way, both stadiums were built to enhance crowd noise. Any KC fan who acts like Seattle had a huge advantage over KC is full of it. KC has 10,000 more seats, but SEA had a liquored up evening crowd and a few more construction advantages. I’d say it was pretty even.

  53. realfootballfan says: Oct 22, 2013 2:54 PM

    I always love homer fans who overlook their team’s flaws. Any Chief fans who think Alex Smith will win them a Super Bowl are kind of crazy.

    He played his best football that year and a half with Harbaugh and was still a liability. He is playing no where near that level this year. He’s, to put it kindly, been quite mediocre this year and outright stunk the last couple of weeks. Your team was in an epic battle with the Raiders (who had no offensive line left at the end of that game) and the Texans (who are a shade off from being 0-7 themselves) into the 4th quarter.

    In other words, I’d humble myself and hope some breaks go my way come playoff time if I were you instead of pounding my premature chest about being undefeated at this point (just ask the Texan fans who were equally flawed at this point last year how that worked out), but I know most biased “fans” can’t do that.

  54. kahunanc says: Oct 22, 2013 2:59 PM

    AR knows talent. List of pro bowlers and solid players long. Alex is something like 26-4-1 in last 31 games. Serviceable is Trent Dilfer. Alex far beyond that. Go Chiefs

    I’m a Seahawks fan and have been rooting for the Chiefs as my AFC team for a long time. They snagged Sean McGrath from our practice squad, so now I watch every game because McGrath is awesome (Andy Luck only wishes he had as nice a neck beard). Also, I love to see Alex Smith having success on a different team!! LOL

    And can we please stop with the noise war? Both stadiums have been bringing the noise every week since we were both in the AFC West. That’s awesome! I love KC fans. Went to a game there, and the fans are just like Seattle’s. Friendly fans, awesome BBQ, great game experience.

    This isn’t another team’s blog. It’s an NFL blog. Last year Chief fans were hard to find around here. Yelix, slickster, jbaxt, and maybe one or two others showed up. Now that the Chiefs are winning, you frontrunners are coming out of the woodwork. You weren’t here when they were 2-14, so don’t come in here and complain now.

    I can only speak for myself here, but I’ve been on this site for years. Mostly just reading. Last year there weren’t many articles about the Chiefs. And when there were, they were just about how bad we sucked. What were we supposed to say to that? There was no debate. We were awful. I kept my comments on the Chiefs sites. There honestly wasn’t anything to add last year. Now there can at least be a debate as to whether we’re good or not.

    There are plenty of fair weather fan teams, but KC isn’t one of them.
