Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has it all figured out…
Make the play-offs here and there – even if you lose in Game One or game Two – and you’ll have a job in Kansas City forever.
Our top pro teams, the Chiefs and Royals, can’t even spell the word "championship," so just makin the post season is totally swell. In fact, with the Royals, winning half their games is something worth considering having a parade over.
Yes sir, we are NUMBER TWO!!!
Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel see it this way: They’ve got nice jobs, why not keep ’em a few years?
Clark Hunt‘s got no real balls and doesn’t know much about football so yeah, he’ll keep ’em if they can just get to the playoffs for God’s sake. So our two fearless leaders went all out this season to make sure the Chiefs might win 9 – hell maybe even 10 or 11 games – Go Chiefs!
Our defense looked good the last six games, right? Hell we shut down the Packers and the Bears. We even slowed down the Steelers. What more do you guys want?
So all we need to do is find a large, I mean really large, guy to hold down the nose tackle spot. Hey look, we got one, Dontari Poe out of Memphis. His stats are, well, awful – no sacks to speak of, one or two tackles a game – second team all league with Shawnee Mission South.
However Poe is huge, at 6’4" and 350, so he could plug that hole.
So we’ve got two sackers, Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. That’s enough to go with our strong pass D, led by the injured Eric Berry and crew. And let’s see, we have who on the D line? Oh yeah, nobody. But that’s OK, we’ve got Derrick Johnson and those linebackers.
So it looks like with chunky added to the equation we can stop most teams. Provided our defense leaves the field at some point. Because we’ve got this offensive problem, like we AIN’T GOT ONE!
But, shhhhhhhhhh, that’s a secret.
We have MATT THE FRANCHISE ready to be as average as possible.
He was a pilgrim in a high school play back in the 90’s…nobody noticed him then either. We got Jamaal Charles coming off his ACL – like that’s going to be a sure thing. And we added a couple other off-season guys that didn’t start much, but they’re great..trust me on that one.
We did get a couple offensive lineman, one might be second string his first season. That sounds awesome.
And hey, according to Pioli, we don’t really have any holes. Unless you look at what to this point has been one of the league’s worst starting quarterbacks for the past three seasons. And we’ve got Dwayne Bowe...except he hasn’t signed yet. Not to worry….we’ve got John Baldwin.…and he’s on fire….
So yeah, if it all works out we might – I mean might – get everybody all excited and slip into the wild card at 9-7 or 10-6…that is if all goes well. And don’t worry, it’ll be a road playoff loss so you won’t have to buy an extra ticket for the Post Season….sounds pretty hot, huh?
"We are building for the future…don’t forget that" Like we have been for a lifetime….
Where’s that Pete Beathard guy? Our number one pick in 1964. He was a quarterback…it was amazing…he was the future.
Look out New England, here come the Kansas City Chiefs and our FUTURE.
