One of these days the Chiefs might get their offense figured out. If they do, who knows how good their record will be.
Kansas City improved to 2-0 on Sunday with a 16-14 win against the Browns, but they did it in spite of a listless offensive attack that showed very little progress from a similarly listless effort against the Chargers on Monday night. Matt Cassel was intercepted twice and the Chiefs again limited Jamaal Charles’s touches even though he was having more success than Thomas Jones when they ran the ball.
The good news is that the defensive makeover in K.C. is moving right along. Brandon Flowers returned an interception 33 yards for their only touchdown of the afternoon and the defense held the Browns scoreless in the second half.
Seneca Wallace didn’t do much to create a quarterback controversy in Cleveland, although one has to ask how much help any signal caller will get from his receivers. Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiske had two catches combined and neither one seems to have much luck when it comes to creating separation from defensive backs.
The Browns may be better than they were in 2009, but after two losses to the Buccaneers and Chiefs we have a hard time believing that their record is going to reflect that when all is said and done.
