Chargers vs Chiefs: Why the Bolts Will Lose

I have changed the title of this post twice this year and BOTH times we have lost that game. I have to go back to the original title and roll with it! I am not going to say I am superstitious, but I do change my shirt in the middle of a game if we are doing poorly. AND I can’t watch the game with certain people because the Bolts seem to do poorly when they are around me. SO if that is superstitious, them MAYBE you can say I am.

SO, back to the reasons why we will lose this game against the Chiefs:

Did you watch last week?
We have not scored a point in our last couple of quarters and Philip Rivers looked like a mess in the 4th quarter. The Chiefs just came off pf a game where they intercepted the ball SIX times!! How many interceptions do you think they will have in this game?

We take our foot off the gas
When we are winning at the half, teams have the confidence to come from behind and steal the victory. Until we can clean this up, teams will always feel like they have a chance against us. Need the killer instinct!

Home field advantage
We have to travel out to Arrowhead. It is a difficult place to play and the fans out there are getting more hope on the season with their last couple of victories. If they win this matchup, they will be sitting in first place with us. The home crowd will be loud and ready.

Tamba Hali
Please Tamba, when you get to Philip, just lay him down lightly and don’t hurt him! Marcus McNeill might not participate in the game because of an injury and that will be a TOUGH assignment for Brandyn Dombrowski to pick up. Dombro vs Hali! Philip better get that ball out quick or we will be talking about some fumbles on Tuesday.

Jackie Battle
This isn’t one of the Chiefs cheerleaders or a player’s girlfriend, this is one of the big runningbacks that will be given the rock on Monday Night. He is a pounder, despite the girl name! If Shonn Greene can burn us, then anyone can do it!

Dwayne Bowe
He is the biggest threat in the Kansas City offense. At least Quentin Jammer will have the assignment and Jam has done a pretty good job on him over the years. This will be one of the good matchups to watch during the game. Let’s see if the refs let them play football instead of making terrible calls.

    @epadaon the defense will dominate KC. Mathews will rush for 125+ if we give him enough carries #chargers

      @TheMuttKing i have to agree with you… i think Philip will shut everyone up and throw for big numbers!! #chargers

      @TheMuttKing matt cassell is still terrible! #chargers

    Nice writeup. The Chiefs have some weaknesses that the Chargers might be able to exploit if they play well. KC has trouble defending the pass over the middle so SD should look to Gates early and often.

    The Chiefs are also susceptible to the big play. Due to injuries, they usually need to sell out to stop one thing or the other. If Rivers can audible out of runs when he has favorable matchups for his receivers, he could burn the Chiefs. KC’s safeties are average at best without Eric Berry.

    This is a different KC team than the one the Chargers beat in SD though. They have more confidence and more of an offensive identify. Cassel has clicked with Bowe and Breaston and now first-round pick Baldwin is playing. They also did not know how effective Jackie Battle could be until recently.

    The Chargers will need to jump ahead early I think because if they give the Chiefs a chance, this could go down to the wire. Arrowhead will be rocking on MNF. Should be a fun game.

      @Arowhead_Addict What the hell is wrong with you? SHUT UP PATRICK. Please just SHUT UP and stop giving out information that might help the enemy.

        Lol. I’m sure Norv is trolling this site right now looking for intel.

    As much as I hate crumbmartie, I kinda agree with him when he said “the chargers can’t finish”. This is why we lose.

  • Bolt Beat

    its so true… we need to FIX IT! but this has been the book on us forever and we still have not fixed it

  • Trong Lam

    It also doesn’t help when rivers is playing like a 3rd tier QB. WTH RIVERS?

  • ChiefsFanInColorado

    Welcome back to Arrowhead, Bolts! It’s gonna be another LOUD, hard-hitting brawl! Chiefs by 7!

    • http://boltbeat.com/ epadaon

      @ChiefsFanInColorado we will see about that!!! Just keep that dang rain out of the forecast and we will be alright!

      • big chief

        @epadaon @ChiefsFanInColorado The Chiefs played in that rain too.

  • big chief

    This might be a good game. I don’t see the Chargers not being up for this game. I also don’t see them coming to Arrowhead on Halloween night with all the crazies in the stands and pulling out a win. Rivers will probably have a cow about the noise and throw one of his cute little temper tantrums. Right now KC is playing better ball and they will be at home with what I’m predicting to be the loudest crowd Arrowhead has ever had so I think they’ll win a fairly close game. Besides, let’s not forget they almost won in San Diego. If not for a last second Cassel brain fart they likely would have won it. I think Chiefs win 24-14.

      @big chief hahah… how many brain farts does Cassel have a game!?! He always gives me hope for a turnover!

      i just hope philip can keep those tantrums down and get focused . if you are able to rattle philip more, you guys will take it.

      • big chief

        @epadaon When he’s playing confident Cassel is pretty good. Sometimes though he seems a little timid does something stupid. He’s been good the last four weeks though. Hopefully he can keep it up.
