(ESPN)   Lamar Jackson calls Chiefs 'our kryptonite' after another loss, but doesn't say what color. Red, green, or blue kryptonite, or maybe the one created by Brainiac that caused Superman to mutate, growing a third eye in the back of his head?   (espn.com) divider line

Loves me some Jackson but he was running around like his ass was on fire. Hard to light it up when that's happening unless your name is "Mahomes".

Gotta be Red Kryptonite.  Unpredictable and goes away in 24-48 hours.

Nah. It's green. It's VERY predictable what happens every time the Chiefs play the Ravens.

Andy Reid has out game-planned Harbaugh by a mile every the last several times they've played. Harbaugh says they got out-executed (among other things) on Monday night, but part of the reason they got out executed is that they didn't stick with the offense that they run every other week of the year. They marched down the field without a single completion on the first drive (one incomplete pass sandwiched by runs). Then the drive stalled when they decided to throw on 3 consecutive downs. After that drive, 3 and out, 3 and out, 5 and out (with the first down by penalty on a pass play). 12 passes (9 consecutive - discounting a run called back by penalty) and 2 runs (3 if you include the penalty). Even KC doesn't let their offense get that unbalanced - and they are very much a passing offense. I know they want Lamar to get into the passing game, but they should have forced Kansas City to stop their running game using all the creativity they usually do in the run game - rather than stopping their running game by themselves.

Reid didn't force them out of their running game, Roman and Harbaugh did it all by themselves. If the defense doesn't get so soundly abused by Mahomes, those possessions don't look so bad, but that series of plays decided the game long before half time.

Per Wiki, there is an alloy of both red and green kryptonite.

/"Pretended that it made him crazy over hats"?  "The hats also hid his third eye"?    Now we know the real reason the Baltimore Ravens are always wearing those unattractive helmets.

I think Red Green Kryptonite is when you don't have enough duct tape.

KC is pretty good. Chargers shut them down in week 2 and shoulda won.
But Baltimore's D made them look like gods last night.

Is that colorblind kryptonite?

Ravens defensive end Calais Campbell said "I'm very confident if we played the game that we're supposed to, we can hang with those guys"

So if you played your imaginary best you might possibly be as good as them.  Not exactly a glowing recommendation of your team.

I think what we saw was the Chiefs preparing for last night's game two weeks in advance. They almost got burned doing it too. Almost every team in the NFL can pull an upset, well maybe not a team from New York. If you aren't prepared for it they can beat you.

The Chiefs only have four more tough games left - Patriots, Bills, Bucs, and Saints. They might be able to get away with skipping prep against the Dolphins to help against the Saints, but they play the Raiders before both the Bills and Bucs. Las Vegas has a capable football team. Probably not going to make the playoffs this year, but they are improving.

Hey, Bills are a New York team!

Not when they're giving up at least 30 points every game.  KC may drop a 50-burger on 'em.

I keep forgetting that Buffalo is in NY. Anyway that wouldn't be an upset this year. The Bills are good.

The Chargers and 49ers are built to defend the Chiefs.
Both still lost so that only goes so far.
Mahomes will destroy a blitz, so the only way to get to Mahomes is a great defensive line.

Ok... Jackson is black so this will come off as racist. I'm not racist so I don't care. The best description of the look on Jackson's face during the press conference was that he looked like a beaten down dog. He fully believes that he cannot win vs the Chiefs.

Interesting stat. In the NFL, how many times has Jackson come from behind in the second half (even just 1 point down)? Zero. He has never come from behind in the second half. Basically, if he is leading, he is a monster. The second he gets behind, he loses his mojo.
