610 Sports host Nick Wright admits he thought the Chiefs could make the playoffs before the season started…
Nick also bought into his pal Todd Haley’s decision to go soft in the preseason in order to be ready for the regular season. Now Nick thinks the Chiefs should lose every game and draft number one to get college superstar Andrew Luck from Stanford.
I agree with Nick, but many don’t.
Yesterday Wright’s top-rated show was flooded with Haters. I know the feeling, Nick.
"What kind of fan are you, Nick? I want the Chiefs to win every game, I don’t care who we draft!" stated one angry caller.
Wright posed this question to several callers: "It’s game 16 and the Chiefs are 1-14. We’re playing the Raiders. If we lose we get Andrew Luck. What should the Chiefs do?"
Most of us who went to school, said LOSE, but you’d be surprised how many didn’t agree.
BEAT THE RAIDERS ANYTIME, THEY SAID. THAT’S MORE IMPORTANT.
Maybe this explains Kansas City in oh so many ways.
Too God fearing, arrest everyone who isn’t born again or doesn’t have light brown or blonde hair, don’t drive a flashy car or you’re an asshole, dress nice but not too nice. We want to win in sports but don’t bend a rule like the winners do.
We are just so moral in Kansas City.
And look where it got KCMO. Like the Chiefs, in too many ways, in last place. Just look at the school system. I know you are pointing to Kansas. Yes, it’s much, much better but over the top with a right wing, God-fearing attitude.
Of course the most ardent moralists are always the biggest hypocrites, right?
Back to the Chiefs and Nick. I agree with Nick, but of course as you readers know I felt this team was bottom five at the end of last season. This team has now lost 9 straight games, including preseason. And three were horrible blow outs.
The Chiefs are last in everything except rushing and a couple other meaningless statistics. Last in scoring, have given up the most points; last place quarterback in everything on and on. THE CHIEFS ARE OFFICIALLY THE WORST TEAM IN THE NFL, so say all of the power rankings…ALL OF THEM HAVE US LAST.
Like Nick and I have both said, it starts at quarterback.
Matt is a decent, tough guy, but he hasn’t cut it – he didn’t work out. Wright gave us the best reason here: The top 7 quarterbacks are either 3-0 or 2-1. The bad ones, like ours, are all 0-3 or 1-2 – all of them.
An outstanding quarterback can make an average team great…John Elway. How’s Indy without Payton Manning (0-3)? So yes, we should suck for Luck.
The most interesting comment Nick made was so damn true:
"Hey, with Kansas City’s luck we’ll tie for the worst spot and lose a coin flip for the top pick."
A truer statement was never made. For some reason we just can’t move to the top very often. The curse of Marty.
