More good news…
I’ve done nothing but put the Chiefs down for several years, but can you blame me?
I had them under 7 1/2 wins on a bet last year and barely made it. Why? THE CHIEFS DEFENSE.
But this season – lord help me – I might just might buy into this football team.
If all goes well with Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry and Tony Moeaki back, and with Dante Poe in the middle, a much improved offensive line and the return of Dwayne Bowe and John Baldwin this team might just win 10 games. And if Peyton Manning fails, the Chiefs could win the division.
Problems? Let’s see what they could be. Oh yeah, quarterback Matt THE FRANCHISE Cassel.
If you look at the last few seasons, with rare exception the top quarterbacks take their teams to the post season and deep and Matt is not a top 15 quarterback. We all know this problem.
So we all are going to have to hope and beg for that one special year from the FRANCHISE.
One more factor; the Chiefs opponents this season don’t shine quite as brightly as last year’s tough group.
I mean no more Green Bay games. Oh damn, we won that game didn’t we? So let’s look at the pre season before we decide the Chiefs fate.
I am hopeful though and at this time will not bet against them for the season. Not yet anyway.
Goodbye Royals, hello NFL. Thank you.
