Because everybody’s favorite sports know-it-all Craig Glazer is back to let you in on the awful truth about this year’s Kansas City Chiefs.
“I am so down on this team,” Glazer says. “More so than last year. I think they’re complete phonies.”
No mincing of words there.
“Everybody made a big deal last year out of the Chiefs hiring Andy Reid as head coach,” Glazer continues. “But he was about to get fired by Philadelphia. I mean, Philly wanted him gone. Andy Reid was an out-of-shape guy with deep family problems. You know, he wasn’t a happy guy. I look at him on the sidelines and he just doesn’t have any energy.”
If the Chiefs wish to succeed, they need to lose Andy Reid, Glazer says.
“When you have five All Pros on defense and you go into a playoff game and have a million point lead in the 3rd quarter and you lose – I don’t even know how you do that,” Glazer says. “And that falls on Andy Reid and that’s why we have to get a new coach.
“I think we’re going to struggle this season and the offense is going to be worse. We’re never going to be a great team with just a good coach. Unless we get a monster player like Peyton Manning or Joe Montana.”
As for the Chiefs new general manager John Dorsey, “He’s supposedly the guy who found all those players Green Bay used to win a Super Bowl,” Glazer says. “But last year’s Chiefs draft produced nothing. So this year why will it be any better? We’re playing New England, Denver two times, Super Bowl champs Seattle, NFC runner up the 49ers and the Chargers twice. To me that looks like a bunch of losses.
“In my opinion the honeymoon for Andy Reid will end and the Chiefs will end up 7-9 or 8-8 – pretty much what we had last year, but we’re playing better teams. This Chiefs team has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. When you think about everything we need, it’s easier to say what we don’t need – we don’t need a quarterback. But if Johnny Football was available somehow, I’d draft him, because we need something. This team hasn’t had a swagger since Marcus Allen, Derrick Thomas, Neil Smith and Joe Montana in the early to mid 1990s.
“We’re what they call in sports, also-rans. The Chiefs are good enough to win a game here or there, but overall they’re cannon fodder.”
