Ive got Denver I might change in two weeks, said Jaworski, aware the two teams will play again on Dec. 1 at Arrowhead.
The home-field advantage is critical, Jaworski told me during a telephone conversation on Thursday. And I just dont think the Chiefs can score enough points right now. Theyre not aggressive offensively, theyre playing that ball-control style if you fall 10 points behind, youve got to change your game plan.
I think the Broncos are going to jump out early and force the Chiefs to do what they dont want to do, and thats open it up.
Jaworski, a former Eagles quarterback who lives in Philadelphia and is close to Chiefs coach Andy Reid, believes Reid still has a lot of tricks in his bag. The Chiefs have not trailed much this season, so this week could be the time Reid opens it up.
Theres a lot we havent seen, said Jaworksi, who finished his 15-year career with the Chiefs in 1989. I watched him for 14 years in Philadelphia, and there are a lot of uniquely designed plays he has in his playbook. The playbook has not been opened yet. Theyre playing to what their strength is, and thats their defense right now
When the time is right, youll see him unveiling some very creatively designed offensive plays.
