Yep, Derrick Johnson will finally go to Honolulu on January 29th…
He sure did earn that trip. And Tamba Hali will return to the Pro Bowl. Both as back-ups. Hali did not play last year so this time he will likely see some action.
Nobody on the Chiefs offense even got a sniff.
Oh the guy we fired, Brian Waters, he’s going to the Pro Bowl but from New England. You know, the guys who have home field advantage in the playoffs. Brian was sure sad to leave, right. He was past it – uh-huh – pro bowl guy.
Dwayne Bowe is not on the list (he was last year). Bowe may yet make it as a reserve if one of the other guys is hurt or can’t play. He too was a shadow of himself last season. Bowe scored only five touchdowns this season – last year he had a boatload.
When your best offensive player isn’t being called, that tells you loudly how bad your offense has become.
All the talk about, "Who will run this team next year?" – does it even matter?
The division will remain weak. Our defense could be solid. We could win the division with just an OK offense and a B defense – 9 or 10 wins – that’s not unlikely.
More than we want to hear it, Matt THE FRANCHISE will start again next year. Kyle Orton is performing for TV as a try-out quarterback for five or six other bad teams. Kyle is still fairly young, and is a solid B- quarterback. The Vikings and 6 other lousy teams will likely offer him a three year $15 million or more package.
Will the Chiefs? They would have to dump Matt.
We all agree Kyle is a step up, but barely. They are both low level play-off quarterbacks if the rest of the team is average or above. That is likely what the Chiefs will be next year. Maybe.
Without a quarterback – and we don’t have one in sight – no team will go deep in the playoffs or to a Super Bowl.
So this Chiefs team – barring a miracle – is out of any real Super Bowl race for years to come.
Fans will have to settle for, WE MADE THE PLAYOFFS. WE WON A POST SEASON GAME!!!!! WE GOT MAIL….YEAH GREAT!
That’s the best we can do. So if that makes you happy, have at it. For me, it’s been just too long a wait. One average team going to one post season game and getting smashed. Like last year. It just doesn’t thrill me anymore. Twenty years since a post season win for the Chiefs, half century since a Super Bowl.
What more do you fans expect for 100 bucks a ticket and $10 dollar beers?
