PFT: McIntosh heading to Seattle for a visit

Now that the first week of the season, for 28 teams, is in the books, vested veterans who are on the market are drawing more interest.

Vested veterans who were on Week One rosters essentially had guaranteed base salaries for the entire year.

One of the vested veterans who could be on teams by Week Two is tackle Damion McIntosh, who was cut by the Chiefs as part of the trim-down to 53.

PFT: Bobby Wade heads to Kansas City

Cut last week by the Vikings after taking a pay cut so he wouldn't get cut and then claiming that the pay cut wasn't taken to avoid being cut, receiver Bobby Wade has cut a deal with the Chiefs.

Per Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, agent Jerome Stanley says that Wade has agreed to terms with Kansas City.

FH: Sorting the Sunday Pile, Week 1: Must-Win Games

A year ago, Matt Cassel got his chance to be an NFL starting quarterback when then-Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard blew up Tom Brady's knee. Cassel led the Patriots to 11 wins, and played well enough for the Chiefs to trade for him in the offseason.

Smash cut to Cassel tweaking his knee during Kansas City's third preseason game (God's sense of humor is underrated), which forced him to miss the first Sunday of the 2009 season. Any chances the Chiefs -- an outfit that won six times in their last 32 games -- had against the Ravens were out the window with Cassel on the bench.

Except that Brodie Croyle, who got his first start since October 19, 2008, actually looked like he knew what he was doing. It was refreshing, frankly. He finished 16 of 24 for 177 yards, 2 TDs and no interceptions. And that was against one of the league's most menacing defense.

Yes, the Chiefs lost 38-24, but it was tied 24-24 with just over five minutes to go. Not sure if that says more about Todd Haley's R. Lee Ermey coaching style, or that the Ravens might not be quite ready to challenge the Steelers in the AFC North, but if there's ever a reason to be pumped about a moral victory I think this is it.

Williamson: Chiefs postgame notes

The Chiefs' defense was solid in the preseason, but it struggled in the season opener as the Chiefs transition to the 3-4 defense.

Baltimore passed at will. Kansas City coach Todd Haley thought he could grind out wins. Giving up 38 points is no way of grinding out a win. There are some nice pieces on this defense. But the ship needs to be tightened.

The Chiefs' offense was encouraging Sunday after struggling in the preseason. Brodie Croyle did a decent job as an injury replacement for Matt Cassel.

The Chiefs need to get Larry Johnson going. He had only 20 yards on 11 carries. Haley wants Johnson to be a workhorse and yardage eater.

Chiefs Fall to Ravens 38 - 24



Baltimore, MD In a second half that resembled a back-and-forth heavyweight title bout, the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens traded touchdowns instead of punches. A one-yard touchdown lunge by RB Willis McGahee with 31 seconds left in the game sealed Baltimore’s 38-24 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The Ravens took the lead 31-24 with 2:06 left in the game as Baltimore QB Joe Flacco connected with WR Mark Clayton for a 31-yard touchdown, one of Flacco’s three touchdown passes on the day, to mark the game-winning score.

A 10-yard touchdown pass from QB Brodie Croyle to TE Sean Ryan highlighted a six-play, 80-yard drive to tie the game 24-24 at with 5:21 to play in the fourth quarter. The Kansas City touchdown answered a one-yard touchdown run by Ravens FB Le’Ron McClain, which capped a nine-play, 76-yard drive that put Baltimore back on top 24-17 over the Chiefs with 8:10 to play in the game.

A 53-yard field goal by K Ryan Succop with 12:02 left in the game tied the game 17-17, after Baltimore had regained the lead late in the third quarter.

Baltimore answered a third-quarter Chiefs touchdown with a touchdown of its own with 3:57 left in the third to take a 17-14 lead. Flacco capped an 11-play, 64-yard drive with a nine-yard TD to TE Todd Heap.

The Chiefs defense turned in multiple big plays as LB Derrick Johnson intercepted a Flacco pass and returned it 70 yards to the Baltimore six-yard line, where Croyle found WR Dwayne Bowe two plays and :50 later to take a 14-10 lead over the Ravens. The touchdown was Croyle’s seventh career TD pass and Bowe’s 13th career TD catch.

Chiefs S Jon McGraw got the Chiefs on the board, blocking a P Sam Koch punt and recovering it the end zone for a TD to narrow the Ravens advantage to 10-7 at halftime. It was the Chiefs first TD on a blocked punt since the 2006 regular season finale vs. Jacksonville (12/31/06).

Kansas City received the opening kickoff after Baltimore won the toss and deferred the decision until the second half. RB Jamaal Charles returned the opening kickoff 24 yards to the 26-yard line, where Croyle and the Chiefs offense took over.

RB Larry Johnson carried for five yards on first down, before being tackled for a four-yard loss on second and five by Ravens LB Ray Lewis. After going no huddle, Croyle’s pass on third and nine was tipped at the line, forcing P Dustin Colquitt’s first punt of the afternoon.

Flacco found three different receivers during Baltimore’s opening drive, WR Derrick Mason for 19 yards, a 22-yard completion to WR Kelley Washington for a first down on the Kansas City 35-yard line, and Clayton for 11 yards and another Raven first down at the KC 24-yard line.

After an incomplete pass on first down, LB Demorrio Williams dropped RB Ray Rice for a two-yard loss. An incompletion on third and 12 set up fourth and 12. K Steve Hauschka trotted onto the field for the 44-yard field goal attempt, hitting the kick and putting the Ravens up 3-0 at the 10:19 mark in the first quarter, after a nine-play, 54-yard drive.

After a three-and-out, Kansas City punted the ball to Baltimore.

Flacco found McClain for 15 yards on first down, but a holding penalty negated the play. On third and two, Flacco completed to Washington for 12 yards and a first down. Heap hauled in a 14-yard grab to the KC nine-yard line.

On third and goal from the three, Flacco scrambled before finding McGahee in the left flat for the touchdown. The touchdown pass capped a 13-play, 70-yard drive, extending the Baltimore lead to 10-0 with 2:04 left in the first.

After the score, WR Quinten Lawrence returned the kick 17 yards to the 16-yard line. After coming up one-yard short of converting a third-and-five situation, Colquitt punted the ball 61 yards to the Baltimore 14, where S Ed Reed returned to the 22-yard line, before a penalty pushed them back to the Baltimore eight-yard line.

Baltimore and Kansas City traded punts to start the second quarter. Baltimore started its next drive on their own nine-yard line with Kansas City forcing a three-and-out after Rice rushed for five yards and caught a two-yard pass from Flacco.

A false start penalty set up first and 15. Johnson scampered for seven yards on first down. Charles lost three yards on second down as LB Terrell Suggs sniffed out the reverse. On third and 11, Croyle converted the first down, the Chiefs first of the day, by finding WR Bobby Engram for 11 yards at the KC 41-yard line. Kansas City’s drive stalled around midfield with Croyle hitting Charles for 20 yards to the Baltimore 28-yard line to end the half.

Baltimore started the second half on its own 20-yard line after Succop’s kick bounced out of the back of the end zone. On second and five, Rice carried for 17 yards and a Baltimore first down. Page broke up a Flacco pass on first and 10, but Flacco hit Washington for nine yards and a first down on third and six. Faced with a second and 18 after a penalty, Rice rushed for nine yards. On third and nine, Johnson intercepted a Flacco pass and returned it 70 yards to the Baltimore six-yard line.

Johnson rushed for one-yard on first down, and an illegal hands to the face penalty on second down gave Kansas City first and goal from the two-yard line. On first down, Croyle found Bowe in the back of the end zone to capitalize on the turnover, taking the 14-10 lead with 8:52 left in the third quarter.

After McGahee ran for two yards, Flacco fired incomplete before finding Heap in the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown, giving Baltimore the 17-14 lead.

After the Baltimore score, both teams traded punts to end the third quarter and start the fourth quarter. On third and four, Croyle kept the drive alive as he hit Bradley in stride for 50 yards to the Baltimore 34-yard line. After failing to convert a first down, Succop lined up for his first field goal attempt of the day. His kick from 53 yards was good, leveling the game 17-17 with 12:02 to play.

Flacco found his favorite target of the day, Heap, for a 24-yard pass play on first down to move the ball to the Kansas City 39-yard line. On second and four from the Kansas City 23-yard line, Rice broke loose up the right side for 22 yards, to the one-yard line. McClain dove into the end zone for the one-yard touchdown and the seven-point lead.

Clayton then took a reverse for nine yards and Rice picked up nine yards on a first down rush, moving the ball to the Kansas City 35-yard line.

Johnson a marked man

Larry Johnson vividly remembers Dec. 10, 2006, the day he gouged the Ravens' defense for 120 yards.

The painful night after was also memorable.

"To me, I think it is a great honor because that's a great defense I was playing against, and as long as they have Ray Lewis and Ed Reed, I still have a certain respect for them," Johnson said during a conference call with members of the Baltimore media Wednesday. "It was obviously a great game for me, but it still hurt. It hurt me even more after the game because of the fact those guys didn't give me an inch. They hit me on almost every play."

When the Kansas City Chiefs visit the Ravens in the season opener for both teams Sunday, Johnson will enter M&T Bank Stadium as the last running back to gain 100 rushing yards against the Ravens.

Chiefs’ Cassel feels good, but will be a game-time call


Despite proclaiming that his sprained left knee “feels pretty good” earlier this week, QB Matt Cassel will likely be a game-time decision against the Ravens on Sunday.

“I think this is something that will go down to the wire with the quarterback,” Chiefs coach Todd Haley said Thursday. “On game day, we’ll still be trying to figure it out.”

Cassel, who has practiced all week in a limited role, is officially listed as questionable on the Chiefs’ injury report, as is starting CB Brandon Flowers (shoulder). more

Haley: Some Positions Still Not Set

Forty-eight hours before the Kansas City Chiefs launch their season in Baltimore, coach Todd Haley indicated he may have several positions besides quarterback where the starters were not set in stone.

Matt Cassel, still wearing a knee brace, worked again at practice Friday. But Haley said whether Cassel would face the rugged Baltimore defense would probably be a game-time decision. The first-year head coach also said it was still uncertain whether Brodie Croyle or Tyler Thigpen would start at quarterback ahead of Cassel, who injured his left knee on Aug. 29 and did not return to practice until Monday.

Cassel was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report, along with wide receiver Terrance Copper and cornerback Brandon Flowers.

Haley hinted there may be other positions whose starters would not be decided until Friday afternoon's staff meeting. In the final weeks of the preseason, the Chiefs have seemed changeable at several positions, including linebacker and the right side of the offensive line.

''Getting close. But I don't want to talk about specifics without our having the Friday afternoon staff meeting,'' he said at the conclusion of Friday's practice.
