Chiefs and Chopper! Oh, sorry – that one’s over. “Anything Can Happen From the Fifty!” In just over one week, GAME ONE, Preseason NFL Football. Yeah, baby. Thank God. And with our Kansas City Chiefs among the favorites.
Well,in some circles.
When you have a very good team, you don’t need those silly slogans do you?
However when you have two pro teams that have stunk it up for decades, well, maybe you do need a little help. To be fair the Chiefs had some very strong teams in the 90’s with Marty-Ball. Since then, uh, nothing. I know they won a couple division titles post Schottenheimer, but please, they still kinda sucked.
Everyone still refers to the 9-0 start with Dick Vermeil in 2003, but by the end of that season, the Chiefs in my opinion, were one of the overall worst teams in the league. They had the worst defense I have ever seen in the pros, the worst. Remember the loss to the Colts, where they never punted in a playoff game? The only one we had that year, or any year since 1993.
Wow, 1993 was our last Super Bowl run with Joe Montana.
A new head coach, an NFL defense second to none and a much improved offense led by the comeback kid, MATT ‘THE FRANCHISE’ CASSEL. Yep, this could be our year. And I kinda mean that. I like our defense, Derrick Johnson, Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. It sounds tough, sounds like sacks, sounds like it will create fumbles, sounds bad ass!
Right. Yep, this could be OUR YEAR.
OK, I want to look at this team in preseason before going official with my prediction. However from what we hear from camp and with Dwayne Bowe coming back next week, I like this team to go 10-6 and be playoff team. Yes, sir.
I mean what could go wrong?!?
P.S. this year I will once again give you college and pro games to take a chance on. And I will tease often. I will take over and unders and only pick games I like. Not ALL GAMES. That’s not going to win you any dough.
Give me a team we can at least be excited about. How about those Royals? Exciting again, huh?
