And this week Denver made it official, the Chiefs have fallen from grace once again. Looking like fools in two weeks on national television, anyone watching last Thursday’s game – the one just before Thanksgiving – would think the Chiefs a joke.
Last night’s game was even worse of course because Denver is an outstanding team and Oakland isn’t. In other words, losing to the Broncos was no fluke.
Denver and Peyton Manning walked all over the Chiefs in the first quarter. In fact the game was pretty much over and somewhat hard to watch after the first 10 minutes when it was clear the Chiefs were beaten in every category.
We couldn’t run, throw or block. Our defense couldn’t stop SME high school. In short, the Chiefs looked like the team most of us thought they would be this year, terrible. And for two weeks now they really have stunk it up.
Denver was just shy of 400 yards on offense while we mustered just over 100 yards in the air. Oh yeah, and 40 yards on t he ground. In this 29-16 killing of the Chiefs season it seemed far worse.
There’s really nothing to talk about besides a better team crushing the falling apart Chiefs.
Will the Chiefs bounce back? Not likely.
We need to win three of the final four games to make the playoffs. And after home games against San Diego – a likely loss now – and Oakland maybe a win, we’re on the road at Arizona and Pittsburgh. Even if KC plays better and beats Arizona and Oakland, but lose to Pittsburgh on the road and SD here, they’re likely out of the wild card.
It was nice to see coach Andy Reid take such small talent and make it work for a few weeks – enough to get our hopes up. The biggest failure now is the defense. Like last year there’s just not much there anymore. The offensive line now stinks again and with Alex Smith having no real targets but his tight ends – yikes, not good.
Like our pal K warned, another bad year for KC.
Even if this team backs into the playoffs, they can’t beat Indy or Denver or New England – let alone the road. Great try, Andy, maybe next year we’ll have a good team. This year is toast, but hey you tried.
In the end it takes more talent to win in the NFL and we don’t have it.
