The Kansas City Chiefs probably won’t win another game this year, won’t being going to any Super Bowl’s in the next five years and their fans have nothing but mediocrity to look forward to in the foreseeable future.
That according to Stanford & Sons main man Craig Glazer, who doubles as a college and pro football handicapper and prognosticator.
“It’s like with the Royals, if you’re happy being an also ran and a borderline contender, then be happy,” Glazer says of the Chiefs. “I’m not.”
Glazer points the finger of blame directly at team owner Clark Hunt.
“Look, Clark took over a bad situation,” Glazer says. “Carl Peterson ran the team into the ground and Scott Pioli took it further. But Clark waited too long to pull the trigger and try and fix things. I think next year with a tougher schedule, we’ll be talking about a .500 season again. There’s nothing to get excited about, because all of the good things in the first five or six games this year went away and all that’s left is the bad stuff.”
Sunday’s loss at home to Indianapolis was devastating, Glazer says.
“The Chiefs got their pants pulled down and were exposed,” he says. “”Every time they’ve faced a good team this year they’ve lost. They’ve only beaten bad teams. I don’t think they’re going to win another game this season, this is it. They’ll probably lose to San Diego next week and then Indy again in the playoffs.
“If people are happy with what they’ve done this year, then enjoy it – they’ve had their season – their season’s done. And this isn’t flip-flopping, this is analyzing the NFL week-to-week. That’s what you have to do.
“Fans can pretend that they have all these stars like Eric Berry and Brandon Flowers, and they do have some very good players, but they’re not great players. Jamaal Charles is the only Chiefs player that’s great.”
Is there a fix?
“There’s no easy solution,” Glazer says. “This team is very light in talent. Chiefs fans are kidding themselves.”
