Wow, suddenly its over…
The Chiefs win the division because the last place Cincinnati Bengals jacked up the Chargers. Kinda like you planned the entire evening so you could have sex with this hot chick. You got the right clothes, you cleaned up your apartment, you even put towels in the bathrooms. You had your mom cook the meal and put it in the oven to stay warm and pretended you made it yourself.
She comes over, dressed to thrill, loves the food and the pad. She goes to the restroom, while she is in there doing her girl stuff, you’re thinking, ‘OK, we go to the club, she gets loaded, I bring her to the Hyatt and VOILA.’ Sex city baby!
Then shock of all shocks, the hottie comes out of your bathroom naked and says, "Come on, lets do it right here. RIGHT NOW!"
You should be thrilled, but YOU WEREN’T READY YET. Damn it. Turns out you don’t need the club, the hotel or anything else. That’s kinda what happened to the Chiefs. Nobody thought the lowly Bengals would beat the mighty San Diego Chargers. But it happened.
Chiefs coach Todd Haley, who may be NFL coach of the year, must decide on the following: to start Franchise All AFC Quarterback, Matt Cassel. But does he only let Cassel play the first half and put in down-to-his-last-few-week-in-the-NFL Brodie Croyle? Yike! Nah. Or does he go with Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones all the way? Do we go all out to beat Oakland now? Or do we let them kinda win, since we already have won the division?
Of course, we’re playing for the #3 vs. #4 spot. Guess 3 is better. And it would be nice to be 11-5 instead of 10-6.
Besides that was the final record (11-5) of the last Chiefs team to win a playoff game and go to the AFC Championship with superstar Joe Montana in 1993! (by the way allow me to apologize for my screw up yesterday on the website, connecting Montana with the ’03 Chiefs. I was so excited when the Chiefs were locking it up, I called Hearne and yelped all that b.s. to him and I misspoke. I said Montana’s team won the West but it was the l993 team which I have mentioned many times in the past. (Sorry for the mental lapse).
Answer to above questions:
Haley will play it hard to win. Croyle will only be in if the game is a blowout either way. No good players will be rested – again unless of a blowout like yesterday.
I think guys get hurt when they lighten up, less so when they play hard. Oakland will go strong, they want to be 8-8, not 7-9 with a losing record. So the Chiefs will want to keep their momentum and BLAST THE RAIDERS.
Let’s go 11-5, like Joe did. Lets go deep in the Playoffs.
I’m starting to think THIS TEAM CAN. I hope so, it’s been a fun, wild ride so far. The Chiefs that likely will be in the Pro Bowl, AFC team are Cassel, Charles, Dwayne Bowe,Tamba Hali, Brandon Flowers, Brian Waters (he had a good, not great year. But he has his career record going for him. Maybes include Derrick Johnson,Thomas Jones and Casey Wiegmann.
Final ranking of the NFL’s top quarterbacks: .#l Tom Brady, #2 Michael Vick, #3 Peyton Manning, #4 Aaron Rodgers, #5 Drew Brees, #6 Matt Ryanm #7 MATT CASSEL, #8 Big Ben,
#9 Phillip Rivers and #10 Joe Flacco.
Those are my picks….
