So it is that it took a day for the comedy club main man you fondly know as the Scribe to come to terms with this year’s Kansas City Chiefs in the wake of last night’s loss to Denver.
“Think about it,” Glazer says. “Who in the NFL has a worse offense than us? They say this is the worst 9-0 NFL team ever, but no, it isn’t. It was the other 9-0 Chiefs team in 2003. You know, they’re playing a below average San Diego team this Sunday at Arrowhead and I think they’re going to be lucky to win that game.”
Here’s the Chiefs problem in a nutshell:
“It just comes down to this,” Glazer says. “You have to have talented, elite players at key positions to consistently beat good teams. And even though the Chiefs were 9-0 and people kept saying they had the No. 1 defense in the league, they really don’t. The Chiefs just lack big time stars at too many key positions on offense to be a Super Bowl threat.
“And obviously we kept hoping that with the injury to Peyton Manning our big sack attack would get to him, but as the game unfolded the reality set in and we didn’t even get one sack. What was impressive about the Chiefs defense was they did stop Denver’s rushing attack.
“And as for pot head Dwayne Bowe, “He tried really hard, but the reality is he’s not very fast and he still drops balls like he did last night,” Glazer says. “He’s just not an elite receiver – he’s decent but he’s not great. And he’s a shadow of what he once was, but what we’ve all been waiting for is the superstar to show up and he just isn’t that guy. Plus he’s a little older now and he has some money and some personal issues.”
The bottom line: this year’s Chiefs are posers.
“That might be a little mean – I mean, they did win nine games – but they had a very weak schedule and they lived off the fact that they faced some really bad quarterbacks and got some lucky plays.”
“I think the Chiefs are looking at losing another two or three games, so barring an injury to Manning, the Chiefs are likely to be a wild card team with a good record,” Glazer says. “So they’ll have to go on the road and they’re just not built to go up against really good teams on the road.”
