CRAIG GLAZER CALLS THE SUPER BOWL AND REVIEWS THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS!!!



TKC NOTE: Our pal Craig Glazer calls the remainder of the NFL season and then gives his advice to the Kansas City Cheifs.

Summary of 2013 Chiefs

The best quote I’ve heard about the Chiefs goes like this:  ‘Last year they were the best of the worst, this year, they were the worst of the best.’  That’s a fair statement.

Andy Reid, new head coach, do I think he should be coach of the year in the NFL?  Sorry Chiefs fans, that award probably goes to Ron Rivera of the Carolina Panthers.  Granted, both teams lost in the playoffs but the Panthers defeated some serious opponents like the Seattle Seahawks and the Chiefs really had no victory on their resume that was impressive.  More importantly, the first half of the season you could make a strong argument that Andy was doing a good job during the first half of the season when the Chiefs went 9 and 0.  The Panthers by season’s end were one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL while the Chiefs were one of the worst.  You can’t escape the fact that the Chiefs went 2 and 6 the last half of the season making them one of the worst teams. 

The end of season collapse of Chiefs playoff teams is now a recurring theme.  Lest we forget the 2003 Dick Vermeil team that also went 9 and 0 to become one of the worst teams in the NFL by the seasons end.  Who can forget Todd Haley’s 2010 Western Division Champion who limped into the Playoffs as the worst team? There can be no argument about this one.



The good news about the Chiefs, Alex Smith has proven to be a rock solid starting quarterback.  With Smith, you finally have someone to build your team around.  Clearly you will have to draft two or three receivers in the first seven rounds of the Draft as we have none.  Jamaal Charles is an outstanding running back but the pounding he is taking will likely shorten his career.  We need to find his replacement as well.  The offensive line has improved but also needs a top-notch tight end as we have none. 

Offense is Andy Reid’s strength; the Chiefs with a few additions could have one of the best offenses in the AFC next year. Bad News.  The Chiefs defense continues to be one of the worst in football.  Our secondary is so over-rated I don’t know where to begin.  Our defense has no leadership.  Clearly it’s split between Derek Johnson and Tamba Hali. 

As sports analyst Bill Maas has said, ‘losing the big leads the Chiefs have had lately simply shows a lack of desire and commitment to finishing, no leadership.’  I agree.  Pretending we have five All-Pros on the defense is ridiculous, I don’t think we have one.  If I had to name two outstanding players on the defense, it would clearly be Tamba or Derek.  What would I do?  Bob Sutton, the Defensive Coordinator, needs to be terminated for doing a terrible job.  How can you keep a guy like this when the second half of the season your defense was ranked number 32?  The biggest line of BS on this year’s Chiefs defense is that they had the ‘sack attack’.  Both Tamba’s and Justin Houston’s sacks came in the early part of the season, after game 6 that came to a halt.  We also need a linebacker who can get to the quarterback,, as of now we have none.  The number one reason our defense fell apart in the second half of the season is that they put no pressure on the quarterback.

Next Season:  If Andy Reid and the Chiefs are going to be an ascending playoff team, they must reach the playoffs again next year.  Sneaking into the playoffs once every four or five years means you are just an also-ran with a weak schedule.  Next year our boys get to face the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco ‘49’ers, Denver twice, Chargers twice, and oh, yeah, the New England Patriots.  How’s that sound?  Here’s how it sounds to me, without major changes on the defense and a couple new, good receivers and the Chiefs will be lucky to be 8 and 8. 

It really irritates me that they named 8 of these guys to the Pro Bowl and a couple more after the Super Bowl teams have been decided.  It just blows their heads up and gives this team false hope.  I think Andy Reid needs to make a strong statement soon by trading ineffective players like Eric Berry, cutting Kendrick Lewis, and I would try and trade Dwayne Bowe but nobody would take him unless we could trick Todd Haley in Pittsburgh into it.

Conclusion on 2013 season:  Another fakeout.  It was fun to be able to go week to week and watch meaningful games all year.  On the other hand, it was painful to see our Chiefs limp to the playoffs again with the hopes of winning one game, which they couldn’t manage.

NFL Picks:

Championship Games
New England Patriots (+11) over Denver teased with San Francisco (+9 ½) over Seattle.

PS: I think New England and the Niners may win outright.  Enjoy the Super Bowl.  Follow me on Twitter @KCKingofSting.

What, no plug for an upcoming event at the club. I was so looking forward to seeing that.

Hey, I think world-famous comedian J.J. Jimmy Walker might be coming to town. He was really big around 1980 for about two weeks!!

I actually agree with Craig and I'm taking both visitors to win outright. Hey Craig, how bout bring John Valby to town? Guy is a legend.

I wasted 2 minutes of my life watching some vid Tony posted a few weeks ago -

it was about about CG - looking for a reality series or something..--

it ended with CG saying "and here I am..stuck in Kansas City"

likely explains his downer comments on the Chiefs.

CG said...

Jimmy Walker is here this week...famous for two weeks huh..well his series still runs on two networks, Good Times, was voted TOP TEN of all time comics on TV and gets the award next week in LA...yeah he's a nobody..People had him top 100 names of Pop Culture in the century and nobodies ever heard DYNOMITE...yeah a nobody..see the nobody this week at Stanfords..p.s. he's a household name, a fact..and funny...hear him tomorrow on KMBZ at 3, TV NBC at 1030 AM, Dare, Mix, Q and Alice on Friday with me..he did 610 and jDare this morning..yep nobody cares about him

Can't find anything wrong with his comments on Chiefs. All true. What isn't true. Yep its a downer, they haven't proven a damn thing.

I can guess Why They call him Jimmy

Glazer agree with you on all fronts.

Walker isn't mentioned in my household. You might care about him but damn few do. In fact last time I head his fucking name mentioned was when he was in KC last and you was pimping his name. Hell he is such a nobody the east side niggers won't come and see him.

The Newton said...

Yeah and isn't that nobody dating nobody Ann Coulter. Internet says YES. Walker is a national figure no doubt. Glazer haters hate. Remember that. Yes JJ is a household figure and a household name. A fact guys.

Johnny Dare? Sweet Jesus, there are folks out there who are still driving around listening to Johnny Dare???

Hey -thanks!!

for when playing the "Dead or Alive?" party game -

it's a good tip to know that '70s sitcom star Jimmy Walker is actually -- still alive!!

(and, yes, Abe Vigoda-- also - still "Alive"!)

LOL well 5:54 I am sure he will be last one she dates I mean even Bill Maher has tagged that and thats as bad as saying you have slept with Byron..

There are only two games this week and you are still playing a two game tease? Yeah, CG can pick them. I have 10 weeks of your picks logged and you are running about 20% on winning your teases yet you tout your one game picks inside your teases.

Anonymous said...

4:50, it was a few years in a '70's sitcom and then nothing more than cameos. Must say, JJ never did anything to me nor have I seen being a public fuckup on TMZ, maybe he is a good guy, but if he was as great a CG makes him out to be, you would have to think he would have had a real second act after Good Times.

Then again, if CG was as great as he thinks he is, he would have a movie about his life made by now, barring him playing himself, maybe Clooney. If not, in CG's mind, he just isn't getting a fair shake.

To all that want to go to Stanford's, google their online reviews. Hope if you buy tickets that it is warm, for some weird reason, out of many reviews the similar bitch is about having to wait in line that very quickly over whelms their lobby and people are online outside regardless of weather.

Anonymous said...

Walker is who he is you either give a shit or not, me I don't give a shit. Walker hit his high mark in the 70's and he is left to doing strip mall small seating dives such as Stanford's. Makes a buck but nothing to be blowing ones horn about to hard.

a TKC douche........... said...

5:20, Glazer, we don't give a fuck about Jimmy Walker or you ! Know that. Best thing for KC is for you to get a decent rug and Sanfords flop house to burn to the ground.

Anonymous said...

Well first 10:17 it would have to move back to KCMO in order to burn to the ground. KCKFD guys know how to fight fire and can even get to a call in a much better response time than KCFD could even dream about doing.

Did you know that the inventor of Dynomite was actually a black man?







just kidding they don't invent shit

CG said...

As per normal the hater or two out there does his thing. So Jimmy Walker is another Stanfords nothing huh...like the long list who have been there, Kevin Heart, Lewis Balck, Damon Wayons and on and on..Jimmy is a household name, hey the man is gotten older but is still out there doing his comedy thing nightly on TV, Vegas, Clubs, Casinos...theaters with big names along with him...no he's not JJ from the old days...he's an adult and a fine comic, David Letterman has him on often and for all your hate mail, what have you done again? Walkers deeds in a week are more than yours in a lifetime...plus he's a good guy..

As for football liar out there I am I believe 57-37 for the year, many teases so 20% is like you a lie, we post each week the picks and the results...decent year..I pick so you can win a bet not 'who wins' the teases are a good way to go...you get more points but hater you know better huh.

I enjoy some of this cause its the same thing over and over...come up with something newer huh.

CG said...

By the way go to 360kc.com and see just how the club really is and looks for those of you who wonder if its as nice as we and others say or a mess like hater one,two and three lie about...go to entertainment there and you will find Stanfords...look at the video tour, it answers all questions..

PS hater I got 100 bucks says Saturday Night 745 show for JJ is sold out, you can come see, and the late show will be close...you can have Tony hold your money, but you are a coward and a liar and wont' do anything but continue to make up hate.

No duh, you give away comps to the early show

Steve Kramer said...

All clubs give away some tickets to shows, nationwide. To fill the back up or holiday slow weeks and weekdays. Stanfords is no different. I work with Pablo and he sells out more than most, even he has some seats comped to fill rooms. If you want good seats you have to pay or be a friend of the club or comic. I've worked with Jimmy in KC and in other cities. To say he isn't a major name and well known is ridiculous. He stands in line and signs autographs everywhere he goes, more than most. When we go out to eat everyone comes over to meet him. I don't get the hate. But what do I know.

Jimmy is also a very strong comic to this day. Funny and topical. I enjoy his shows.

Steve couldn't agree more, well put.
