People who just love the Chiefs and are punished every year with a playoff loss in round one and now six straight losses at home, an NFL record.
Why do we lose?
Because our organization is incapable of winning big games. Head coach Andy Reid has had four playoff seasons out of five here and we stunk in every post season game…as usual.
We lack the needed talent to win!
Saturday KC did its usual failure, even after looking like it would be a blowout early with a 14 point lead in the first few minutes. Why did we lose? Because the Titans were tough, we were not!
Our defense can’t tackle and we were even unable to tackle their quarterback, Marcus Mariota. Hell, their only star player, a running back was out with injuries and they still ran all over us.
QB Alex Smith looked very good early on as usual, but like in most big games a la last year’s Steelers loss at home, he was unable to score any points in the second half after leading 21-3 at half, and then losing 22-21.
Was it all Alex Smith’s fault? No.
Terrible defense, save Marcus Peters and a great game from at the end of his career Derrek Johnson. Tyreek Hill was the offense as usual. Travis Kelce did well until he got hurt and out for the game. So likely Kelces would have been out for next week too.
Not available in the big games when needed…sound familiar?
The other big reason we lost and stunk, was our league leading running back, Kareem Hunt couldn’t run at all. He had only 42 yards rushing. The Titans realized Hunt was a dead dog and focused on rushing Smith who they buried in the second half.
Oddly the Chiefs discovered Demarcus Robinson for a final first half touchdown drive and he made a fantastic catch for the TD, but was never used again. Why?
We heard from the new Raiders head coach, Jon Gruden, how great Alex Smith is or Gruden covered the game for ESPN, his last.
I’m sorry Alex, you’ve had your seasons here and now it’s time to move on.
You worked hard and had some good games but in the end you can’t win when it matters. Time to move on.
That’s the only good news for next season, that we will start a young, exciting quarterback in Patrick Mahomes and hopefully we can get a few draft picks that matter to fix this terrible defense and offensive line.
When Chris Jones went out early our D line fell apart.
We just aren’t a very good football team. Let’s be honest, had we won, this was it! This team could not beat New England or the Steelers today. No way. So it’s over, again.
To be great you need a very talented winner at quarterback. Maybe that will be Mahomes. I sure hope so. Otherwise expect more of the same.
With our Royals dead ducks for a few years at least, all we have now is the Chiefs. I hope we get better and one day win some big ones.
Again, sorry Chiefs fans you don’t deserve this outcome every year in the post season. Plus $40 to park!
The game was not even sold out…I wonder why?
Well, the nation got their fill of our Chiefs this year with something like seven nationally televised games. Joy!
Maybe one day, but when?
