No way is this year’s Kansas City Chiefs team a first tier NFL squad, says betting-man-turned-scribe Craig Glazer. Still after beginning the season 2-0, he’ll take it.
“What’s nice about it is the Chiefs are not a joke,” Glazer says. “They’re not the clown team they were last year. There’s hope for the Chiefs.”
Super (Bowl) hope?
“No, I don’t think they’re an elite team, they just don’t have the weapons,” Glazer says. “I think the Chiefs might be a 9 game winner but they’re just a Jamaal Charles injury away from everything going kabooey.”
But in the interest of waxing positive after today’s win over Dallas…
“The Chumps won,” Glazer says. “They were impressive and they had some big plays.”
And lucky too, huh?
“Well, the big play was Romo hitting a bomb to Dez Bryant and him dropping it,” Glazer says. “But in the NFL, there are no style points; a win is a win. I mean, it’s time to give the Chiefs a little credit.
“The Chiefs are the real deal. But let me make it clear to readers, because they’re 2-0 and because they have such an easy schedule, they are officially a playoff contender. Now because the Chiefs won, when they play Philly Thursday night in Philadelphia, the focus has changed from being just on the return of coach Andy Reid, to being on Kansas City. Had the Chiefs lost, it would have been all about Andy Reid coming home and not the Chiefs.”
The Scribe’s prediction:
“I think it’s going to be a helluva game and Kansas city could beat ’em. There is no line, but my guess is Philly will be a 3 or 4 point favorite at home. Because people don’t really trust the Chiefs yet, but I kinda like the Chiefs.”
