The Chiefs have had the worst good luck!
First they lose two of their best players to injury, then they get smashed through the entire preseason and first three regular season games. They were ranked as the worst team in the NFL. Two games later, they beat a pair of 0-3 teams, now everyone thinks all is well.
"Boy, if we can beat Oakland and maybe upset San Diego on Monday Night, beat Miami and Denver – win one more – yeah we are 6-10.
Unfortunately, with all the injuries in the league, the Chiefs have now become almost average compared to many teams. They have gone from an F team to maybe a D plus or C-. And suddenly fans are saying stuff like, ‘We need to see more from Jackie Battle, D-Bowe, and THE FRANCHISE, Matt Cassel.’ And with no really strong defenses in the league- save maybe Baltimore – the Chiefs could be O.K. now.
What does all this mean?
Here’s what it means, this Chiefs now will play themselves out of contention for a first round top quarterback. There are at least one or two There are quality quarterbacks out there beside Andrew Luck of Stanford. My favorite is six foot seven inch Arizona State quarterback, Brock Osweiler. He may be the MAN. Tall, fast, smart, can make all the throws (big arm). His quarterback rating is now 142.8. Brock has 15 TD’s and has thrown for 1968 yards already. ASU is a very good team, at 4-2, losing only to top 15 teams like the Ducks. ASU is a top 25 team because of Brock. Six foot seven wow. Gets the ball out quick.
That would be nice.
However it now looks like the team is out to save head coach Todd Haley.
So they know they need six, if not seven wins. That’s now possible. Oakland – a sure loss for the Chiefs, a much better team than ours – just lost its quarterback to injury yesterday. KC now has a chance to win there. Before they had no chance. They’ll likely lose at home to the Chargers. But on a Monday Night, with all that energy, who knows?
We will see at least two more wins against really bad teams like the Dolphins and maybe Denver here. And a 6-10 team likely will have no chance to draft any of the top three quarterbacks. We’ll still be stuck with Matt THE FRANCHISE. Meaning we will go nowhere.
As we now see, it’s all about the quarterback. Without a top guy, you’re just an OK team with no real hope of a Super Bowl.
I often hear, "Yeah, what about Baltimore in …"
But the game has changed. Can’t you see that?
It’s a league built for offense now. The rules heavily favor the offense. "Don’t touch the receiver after five yards. That hit was too hard, roughing the quarterback. A defenseless receiver is hit, pass interference. And on and on.
You can barely play defense anymore without a penalty. It’s insane.
So nobody will ever have a shut down defense anymore. The run just sets up the pass now. Balance is almost gone. In fact we are starting to look like Indoor football – THE ARENA LEAGUE – GOD FORBID.
So let’s get a quarterback! And let’s at least look at Ricky Stanzi.
P.S. ANOTHER OUTSTANDING PICKS WEEK FOR THE GLAZE….Perfect in College..one pro loss….tops in America, I think….
