I know many of you Chiefs fans are pissed at your humble scribe for being THE ONLY MEDIA GUY IN TOWN, to tell you well before the preseason ended, that not only would they not win a division title, they’d be one of the NF L’s doormats.
Sorry, radio guys, you didn’t say that.
You rode the fence, like the Star‘s Sam Mellinger. I didn’t. I took a ton of crap for being honest. Now you can see that it’s gonna be kinda tough to call Mister Glazer "a man who doesn’t know sports" ever again. This was a big and bold call.
NOW ITS OVER.
Not officially but very close.
Coach Todd Haley had PROMISED to run a preseason where no important player would be injured.
Hey, his team has a tough schedule, right. We need all those guys. He fired Brian Waters (pushed him out). Brian is the quarterback of the O line. Now he’s gone and the line is gone. They don’t know where to be or what to do. They let Mike Vrabel go. He was effectively the linebackers coach and in a way the coach of the defense on the field.
Yes, Brian and Mike were getting older, but this weak team needed these two locker room leaders and on the field leaders.
The preseason was an EXPLOSION. NO WINS, NONE, NO GOOD GAMES, NONE.
For a team in mental trouble not very good, NOBODY EVEN LOOKED GOOD. Except Ricky (He’s so fine).
Then came the pain. Haley, looking foolish for getting his ass kicked week after week, breaks his game plan and starts ALL THE STARTERS IN GAME FOUR. This to avoid an 0 for 4 feeling. Hey, the Packers told him they were not going with their starters for more than one series and they didn’t.
It was long enough to win the game though. Aaron Rogers scored in like one minute and left the game with a win.
Now no injuries during preseason, right?
We lose Janathan Baldwin our number one draft pick maybe for most of or all of the season. Our starting tight end is out for the year, injured in the final game. And now, our starting quarterback has a broken rib. MATT THE FRANCHISE IS OUT.
So a must win against the Bills Sunday is now likely a loss.
The Chiefs are off the board in Vegas. Vegas had them at 8 1/2, meaning they needed 9 wins to beat the spread. I told you to BET EVERYTHING ON THAT LAST MONTH. Today YOU CAN’T BET ON THE CHIEFS, BECAUSE THEY ARE A JOKE, THEY ARE OFF THE BOARD (too many injuries to be taken seriously anymore).
Rumors are flying at Arrowhead.
Todd and Scott Pioli ARE ON THE OUTS, FOLKS. Yes, they don’t care for each other, but…
SOMEONE HAS TO TAKE THE FALL FOR THIS CLOWN SEASON UPCOMING.
It will be Todd Haley. HE WILL LIKELY BE LET GO AFTER THE NOW 2 or 3 or 4 win season.
Someone’s gotta take the heat and it won’t be Scott. Yes Matt may also go. But he was Scott’s, so maybe not. That depends on Ricky. Again, the man I said would start this season and he will.
They will go with Tyler Palko for a minute but not forlong. He will be injured or stink and then we will have a veteran, likely if available Kyle Boller. He will go down and then, OH RICKY, YOUR SO FINE, YOUR SO FINE, HEY RICKI!
By then we will be like 0 and a million so it might not be such a good thing for the talented Iowa quarterback to have to play with that depressed group of Chiefs.
So don’t be upset with me, it’s not my fault.
I want to be a fan. I want to go see the games with you. But damn, let’s get a coach and get a team.
A few good players are not a team. Lets be honest, none have really lighted things up – none.
Even Jamaal Charles has issues. Just like he did last year. He can’t pick up key short yards, not many touchdowns. D-Bowe takes entire games off. Tamba Hali is a good sacker but can he stop the run? Derrick Johnson is Steady Eddie but needs more sacks and big plays to be a gamer. Matt never reached a high level. Brandon Carr and Flowers are called great, but their numbers and mistakes don’t demonstrate that. Teams often throw at will on the Chiefs over Eric Berry, Carr and Flowers.
Let’s get real fans. Coaching is clearly an issue.
Todd’s record in three years will be below Herm‘s, which was horrible. CALL MARTY, CALL MARTY, CALL MARTY.
Please don’t get Ricky hurt, he’s too fine.
Yep, the season is over before it even started. Find another team to follow, the NFL will be fun with or without our terrible Chiefs.
So, so, so very sorry.
