As your humble scribe and friend, I told you just the other day the Chiefs are not very good…
That they would be lucky to win 6 games this season. Last night they started by showing off just how bad a team can be. Yes, it’s pre-season, but it’s ALWAYS PRE-SEASON for this failing franchise. They couldn’t have looked worse. NOTHING looked decent. Nothing. Defense rated an F-minus – they couldn’t even stop the Tampa number two or three quarterbacks from picking up long third down throws. Our offense well, it was not at Arrowhead. As I write this the game is still stinking up my screen. I am doing the Chong show, but took time out to watch this "mess’ we call the Chiefs.
Let’s see what else.
Our quarterback, who clearly needs no warm up, Matt THE FRANCHISE Cassel, threw once for zero yards. Nice workout. We had one run for about 20 yards by Thomas Jones, our big and only good offensive play so far. Then he fumbled to Tampa. Oh yeah, Tampa scored on a safety later as well. Lets see the score is now 22 Tampa, 0 for the doormat Chiefs.
Am I being mean? Is it too early? No and No.
This is a poorly coached ball-club. They will struggle to find any wins – any. Anf the Chiefs front office knows this.
In the meantime, Detroit who couldn’t win a game two years ago, found a quarterback and a dominant defender and built a winner. They’ll make the playoffs this year. Tampa Bay is a Super Bowl contender behind Josh Freeman, a two year starter at quarterback from K-State.
The Chiefs had a phony division title last year and this year the real team will show up… near last.
Am I being a downer? Yes. The Chiefs deserve it for raising our hopes. This continues to be a bad team with a couple good players. I wish it were different, I really do. Like you, I hate finding another team to pull for outside our own. It’s painful but necessary in order to survive the horror of yet another lost season.
Sorry, it’s just true.
NO, I AM NOT WAITING TO CRAP ON THESE GUYS.
They just ain’t got it! And I’m being generous with 6 or 7 wins.
