    Jackson is a big man. This D is wore out. It has been on the field all day. Jackson is like the closer coming in to seal the victory.

    Oh stop being so dramatic, we will win enough games to justify keeping the coaching staff in place.

    Don't blame the D. It has been on the field all day. Our O is to blame.

    O line, Kaeding, D. Very sad. No way in hell we should lose to a team like this.

    Houston just scored to go up on KC w/28 seconds left. Why can't we pull out these kinds of games?

    Well I had this one right. In a close game the Rams win.

    Too many mistakes. The team has lost confidence in itself. We have now lost 1/2 of our road games. This team will not be able to win the AFC West or make the playoffs losing on the road in embarrassing fashion like this.

    So now, I have zero expectations and will just enjoy the ride, because this team is going no where fast.

    There is plenty of blame to go around, that's for sure. The O line sucked. A team cannot win when they allow their QB to be sacked 7 times. The D bent all over the place in the first half. Special teams continues to lack any sense of specialness. 6 complete weeks and not an iota of improvement. They are mired in bad play and a horrible coaching staff.

    Not in the first half. They let the Rams move at will.
    A good team comes up with plays in the clutch to win.

    The team has no heart. Maybe all that garbage by AJ had an effect. Maybe that was a distraction.
    The team is definatly worse than last year.

    KC is moving w/13 seconds left but needs TD to win. FG won't help

    Of the three units, the D did play better. It gave us opprotunities and we didnt take advantage.
    They gave up scores but they didnt complelty break till the end. Then they were wore out.
    This team is a pass first team. Norv does not like to run. We are not balanced at all.

    I lost the feed so I didn't get to see much of the fourth quarter. For all the Norv haters out there, this is just what the doctor ordered. The Bolt's sure did look like they were sleepwalking out there today, oh well good thing it's only a game.

    I hate to say it, but I agree. All the bull at the beginning of the season should have been a red flag.

    Sadly, we have to hope our rivals in the AFC west lose so we have a shot at the division. I'd rather we had control of our own destiny. Doesn't seem likely.

    Dire... It was ironic that Nate failed once again in the clutch, but really, many many parts of this team lost this game today. The playcalling on O was diabolical hence 7 sacks. Having said that the O line need to take a look at themselves, the Rams rushed 4 when they were not blitzing and they got to Rivers all the time. The D were out on their feet at the end. Broken down D + Steven Jackson = you are dead.

    The one bright spot for me was the emergence of Crayton. This guy is a baller. He needs to much more involved. Esp if Gates and/or Floyd are dinged up. No doubt about it though it is all uphill from here on in. 1 thing is for sure, if this continues there is simply no justification for going into 2011 with Norv at the helm and Kaeding kicking.

    AJ is now in the hot seat IMO

    He hired that ******* coaching staff, and Norv has ruined our team

    AFC West is medocre at best this year. Anything can happen.

    My Chiefs looked awesome in the 1st half, and had one of the all time biggest defensive collapses in the 4th quarter.

    Matt Cassel and Dwayne Bowe looked ike offensive weapons for once, and the defense picks TODAY to collapse.

    I will say that Houston was helped by one of the all time worst phantom pass interference calls ever made on the last drive when Andre Johnson shoved Brandon Flowers forward and they somehow flagged Flowers, but even with that, the Chiefs totally collapsed.

    I can't figure out what ANY team in this division is at this point.

    Unless this team does a complete turn around, I dont see us having a good season. Abe may have been right 8-8, may be what we finish.
