“Well, I’m trying to think of a nice thing to say,” says comedy impresario and sports provocateur Craig Glazer. “On the plus side, quarterback Alex Smith played very well.”
That’s the good news, folks, now brace yourselves for the bad.
“Now that we’ve seen the entire season and a playoff game, it’s clear that this Chiefs team has not improved nearly as much as their record once indicated,” Glazer says. “To lose a game they once lead by 28 points in the second half is truly unbelievable. That was one of the worst playoff collapses of all time.”
Now some words of wisdom for the unwashed:
“You know, if you’re a die hard Chiefs fan, you’ll say,”Well, we had injuries,’ but that’s a crock,” Glazer says. “What you have to look at is the Chiefs defense is awful. They can’t stop anything. I think we’re kidding ourselves that we have a Super Bowl in our near future because we simply do not have the talent. I mean, I don’t even know what to say about a team that blows a lead of 38 to 10 in the 3rd quarter. What can you say? And you want to get mad at me?”
“Hey, I was wrong about MU,” Glazer says.”There’s a team that in the beginning of the year I felt would be pretty average and they’re a pretty good team. I think Missouri’s got a bright future in the SEC. I’m not saying they’re in the league of an Alabama or Auburn but…”
And now a few words about – you guessed it – next season:
“Well based on the information we have now, we have all these ‘great’ coaches getting paid a ton of money – millions, and our draft was horrible – we just don’t have the players,” Glazer pronounces. “So I don’t think the future’s bright. I don’t think the Chiefs will be a bad team, but whoever’s going to make this team great isn’t here yet. And I don’t know when he’s going to get here – whoever he is. I just think this team has too many holes to advance next year and the schedule’s going to be a lot harder.
All year long we heard about the improvements, but I’m looking at the second half of the season where the Chiefs ended up 2-6. I mean, I’m still in disbelief about what happened in Indianapolis. In the first half I thought the Chiefs were going to beat them 58-10. What they proved yesterday is they just couldn’t do it, not when it counts. There is no joy in Mudville; the mighty Casey has struck out.”
