To put it mildly, THEY STINK.
There were no bright spots. Nothing to brag about.
“But hey Craig, it’s only the preseason!!!!!'”
Please, I’ve seen enough of this clown show to tell that the Chiefs will struggle to win a couple games. It takes talented ball players with a purpose and a desire to win to be successful in the NFL that doesn’t exist here.
Sure there are a few very good players, but once this team is 1 and 5 or so, they’ll just let down, and start thinking about next year or their next job. Can you see this mess beating anybody?
Look, Chiefs coach Andy Reid knows he is in big trouble.
You better believe that he went all out to get his first string to score a couple touchdowns. Yet they scored ZERO touchdowns again. They have ZERO for the entire preseason.
And yes, that matters.
Reid is trying to figure out a way out to cover up not having any decent offensive lineman, but he can’t do it. The quick pass only works so many times. Or Jamaal Charles slants a few times. Then it’s a lot of third downs inside your opponent’s 45 yard line that go nowhere, as we saw.
Losing right tackle Donald Stephenson for four games sealed this teams fate.
The Chiefs WILL soon be talked about soon as one of the NFL’s worst football teams.
There’s NO hope this year. None.
Look, Patriot’s QB Tom Brady couldn’t win 8 games with this group of players. No way.
At least Alex Smith can run the ball, that helps here and there.
Don’t you love wide receiver Donald Avery? How many third down balls will he drop or pull up just short of the first down marker this season – like 15?
We have no talent past Charles, tight end Travis Kelce and one or two others on offense. Our defense has no talent period. There isn’t one standout defender right now.
They made Matt Cassel look like Peyton Manning. The Vikings?
OK, I promised not to get into last night’s game = it was too ugly to watch.
The big question is,will Andy Reid be on the chopping block by season’s end?
And the answer is, YES.
“Reid’s too old.”
“Andy has health issues.”
And what about general manager John Dorsey? Oh boy.
Reid will likely get his third and final season from Clark Hunt. But Hunt and Dorsey have to take much of the blame for not having any money under the cap to buy even one good player. Christ.
Look Chiefs fans, this is another repeat of 2011.
Remember that phony western division title of 2010? You know, the year we were lukewarm early but by season’s end couldn’t beat Shawnee Mission East. Same as last year really, fast start with a weak schedule and back up quarterbacks followed by the same harsh reality…all we got is Jamaal Charles.
How’s that under 8 1/2 wins looking now?
A lock, huh? I think so.
So then we need to find guys from other teams to come here and help, but we aren’t good at that either. So we continue to fail.
Hey, the Kansas City Royals will give us something to smile about in about five weeks. Thank God.
So pick another team to follow this year because the Chiefs will just make you want to throw things at your TV.
