Yes, the Chiefs are still 0-3…
Yes, they are still one of the NFL’S worst teams. Bottom three for sure – maybe the worst. They are officially rated last. However, they put on a better than expected effort against San Diego away. Both teams had a boat load of injuries. And now the Chiefs have lost Brandon Flowers. Although I’m not sure how bad it is yet.
So now they have just three weapons; Dwayne Bowe, Dexter McCluster and surprising new tight end Leonard Pope.
Together they may have saved coach Todd Haley’s job -at least for now. It’s still likely however that he will be fired before season’s end. However if Todd with his patch work defense and offense can win the next two games against the 0-3 Vikings and soon to be 0-3 Colts, Todd might make it through to the end of the season. But even with a couple of wins, the Chiefs have to fire him. The Chiefs will be in rebuild mode now for years to come.
The game plan today looked to be, RUN THE CLOCK OUT FROM THE FIRST PLAY.
Todd wanted to lose close, but he had no idea the Chargers were going to help him so much. San Diego’s key penalties kept the Chiefs alive. Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers was shaky and their running game was off somewhat and their defense is only a little bit better than Kansas City’s.
I’m pissed cause they ruined my picks, had they lost by 9 instead of 3 I would have had a nice board.
Instead my pro picks were just OK. My college was great. You just can’t count on the Chiefs to help you, even when they lose.
The good news for me is at 0-3 they are closing in on my most important pick of losing more than 7 1/2 games. That, of course, is a for sure deal now.
The other good news is the Chiefs can use this close loss to put at least 40,000 butts in the stands this coming Sunday. Where a wipe-out may have reduced the crowd to under 30,000.
Which still could happen, there’s really not much to see right now.
