"They are who we thought they were," famous, former NFL coach, Dennis Greene…
The Chiefs are who I thought they were; a pretty poor NFL team. Yes, they have improved from being the worst team in the league at the season’s start. Yes, they play hard. Matt Cassel tries with all his might and we now have a damn good receivers group led by Dwayne Bowe and Johnathan Baldwin. But our defense is still up and down, average at best. Matt is a bottom 10 quarterback and our running game is just OK.
The Chiefs are below average, but again not the worst team in the NFL.
If we got a solid quarterback, we could compete next year with a team that could be dangerous in the play-offs. Short of that NO.
Your humble scribe and one of the nation’s best NFL analysts is now looking good on his big bet – Chiefs under 8 wins for the year. I feel we could lose to Denver and then it’s over. We have the big five game horror run against the Pack, Steelers, Jets, Chicago and New England, all much better teams than us. Likely 0-5 or 1-4. Close with Denver and Oakland 1-1. The Chiefs look to be going 6-10 or 7-9 and either way, I win. Yes.
Miami crushed KC and finally a crap team beat another crap team and it was us.
Look, we should be 2-5. The Colts threw the game it would seem – they were killing us – it looks fishy. The Chargers gave us a gift, we really should have lost. And even the Vikings lead most of the game. Only the Oakland game was a real solid win and they went with no quarterback or running back. All luck and fate. A terrible team, the Chiefs got some breaks.
In today’s game, against a team with no wins, Miami, the Chiefs were the Chiefs.
Only Bowe mattered. Matt couldn’t hit anyone that mattered in the Red Zone. His game is "don’t turn it over" and we have a chance. No running game. Defense was horrible, especially on pass D. Nothing looked good. More important there was no sense of urgency from our Chiefs.
They know they are not worthy. The team knows it’s just OK. And I guess that’s good enough in this town, but I hope not.
