Chiefs Make Falcons Look Like Champs

Filed under: Chiefs, Falcons, AFC West, NFC SouthYou’re never going to be in good shape when you’re starting your third different quarterback during the third game of the season, but for the Chiefs it’s been a complete disaster.

With Brodie Croyle and Damon Huard hurt, the Chiefs handed the starting job to second-year pro Tyler Thigpen. Thigpen looked OK last week in a Chiefs loss, but apparently he’s forgotten anything he ever learned about playing quarterback.

With less than five minutes to go in the first half, Thigpen is 2-for-13 for 12 yards and two interceptions. Until he connected on a 13-yarder midway through the second quarter, he hadn’t completed a pass beyond the line of scrimmage, and he’s also been sacked once.

The Falcons may be still a long ways from the playoffs, but any Chiefs’ fans watching today have to wish they could be in the Falcons’ shoes. Atlanta has a promising young quarterback (Matt Ryan is 6-for-12 for 127 yards and a touchdown), the better running back (Michael Turner has 15 carries for 75 yards while the shell of Larry Johnson has seven carries for 19 yards), better receivers and a better defense.

The Falcons were supposed to be the worst team in the NFL coming into the season, but after watching the first half this week, it’s clear the Chiefs are truly the NFL’s worst.
