Oh brother. What once was a promising season is starting to look too much like last year and the year before and the year before and – well you get it!
Seems like only yesterday. Third quarter of the Houston game, on the road – the Chiefs just scored and it seemed like the game was over. These Chiefs are about to lock up the Western Division Title in the AFC! Man are they dominating the Texans. This game is over! The Chiefs will move to 5-1! They’re gonna be hard to catch.
Then the wheels came off.
Every Houston play on offense worked. Ten yards, 20, 40 – our defense couldn’t stop anything. They stunk. And just like that you began to feel it was over.
Since then it pretty much has been.
Yeah, we beat Buffalo at home, a team with no wins, and it took overtime to do so.
As I stated before this game. Our running game has been kinda figured out. Our defense tires easily. We no longer have a defined anything. It looks like winning a couple games might be tough.
Last place is now within reach….again.
Sure we are 5-4 and in a tie kinda with Oakland for first. Please. It’s as phony as that 3-0 start. Hey, I got sucked in too. We all want to be winners.
The respect KC had early on is now gone – the swagger gone.
The "Franchise" Matt Cassel had his best game as a pro: Four touchdowns, 469 yards. Wow. Bowe had 13 catches for 180 plus. We got blown out. Those numbers mean nothing. They were handed out by a team who won the game in a few minutes of play.
Our defense stinks, again. I mean it’s awful. A joke. Again.
We have no running game, Thomas Jones has been knocked out for two straight games, worthless. Jamaal Charles is decent but no game breaker. Where’s Dexter McCluster? Oh yeah, hurt. We lose one guy and now we stink.
Let me say that again WE LOSE ONE GUY AND STINK. That’s how thin the Chiefs are as a team.
Again your playmakers are Dwayne Bowe, Charles and that’s it! That’s all!
Can the Chiefs come back? No.
I’m afraid they are what we thought they were: An average at best football team, struggling for respect and an 8-8 season.
And that’s we may get, with a soft schedule. Do you really see them winning 5 more games?
Again, I bought in as well. Said I was sorry for being so down on them. Hmmm, I hope this mess gets better, but it sure doesn’t feel like it will.
Man, a first place team that feels like a loser. Odd.
