Hardly anybody has been talking about the Kansas City Chiefs this season…
Even here in KC, where the media led by yours truly decided they were done this year after one game. Until in today’s Kansas City Star the team’s bandwagon has been mostly rider free. Mostly because of the World Series and the Royals obviously.
But hold it, this Chiefs team at the moment is the best we’ve had in 20 years.
That’s right, head coach Andy Reid has worked magic!
He’s even got me believing and I’ve had nothing but horrible things to say about this organization for year…until now.
Okay,the Chiefs beat a weak New York Jets team at home 24-10 – not overly impressive,
And hey, they’re 5-3 and just a game back of Denver.
Plus they get to they play Denver and the Chargers at home.
Seriously the way the Chiefs are playing this team can beat anyone.
They have the best defense in forever and a balanced offense. One reason they were slowed a bit on offense yesterday is the health of quarterback Alex Smith. Smith was a bit banged up and needed some rest from running the ball so much and he got that.
I look to lose my under bet and the Chiefs to win no less than 10 games now.
Things have changed sf I’m actually excited to watch them play now.
I WAS NOT LAST YEAR.
They were not a good team. I know you hate to hear that, but they had no defense. This year Justin Houston is for real, last year he wasn’t at season’s end.
I mean the best team in the NFL is Arizona? Denver can’t win the big one on the road in cold weather. New England, who KC walked on four weeks ago, is now the team to beat? Mark Sanchez is back? Huh?. Colt McCoy leads Washington to a win at Dallas on Monday Night Football. What?
In college Missouri is alone atop their division again as bad as they’ve played at times. And K-State is now in the final four conversation. Yep. Florida State and Mississippi State continue to win but don’t dominate. Looks like maybe Alabama again.
It’s been a really tough year to bet on football.
My worst ever and I’m not alone.
Looks like the rule changes and parity have finally changed the game forever. Anyone can beat anyone it seems – OR COVER – hah!
