Kansas City Moment Of Doubt In The Chiefs As 'One & Done' Comments Predicted Demise!!!



Die-hard fans of the Kansas City Chiefs are hard to find today. The Sunday hangover of disbelief, bitterness and resentment is dialed up amid this local Winter of discontent.

However, we offer a brief respite from hard feelings for a host of skeptics . . .

Cliches, the Chiefs, and you

Any given Sunday. Sometimes it's just not your day. It's a game of inches. It's only a game. There's always next year. Cliches. Mindless cliches. Things we've heard so many times they've lost virtually all meaning to us. Remember the last time you had a rough stretch, and someone inevitably told that "things can only get better from here?"


Tragic Kansas City End Game

Kansas City Chiefs: Cracking under pressure... again

Different season, similar result. An up and down season for the Kansas City Chiefs came to an abrupt halt at home thanks to Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans. The Titans came back from an 18 point halftime deficit to score 19 unanswered to defeat the Chiefs 22-21.

Clark, the front office gang, and the make-believe celebrity players made many tens of millions regardless of the outcome.
Thanks "Chief's Kingdom"!
They know that even if parking, hot dogs, and beer, not to mention tickets, are even more expensive next year, the regulars will be back.
Now get downtown and buy one of those $45 T-shirts.

This is who they are and what they do: Choke under pressure. They did it under Schottenheimer and they do it under Reid. It's almost like there is something in the air or water here.

alex smith was and is good, imho. a smart team somewhere else should go after him.

Alex Smith is already on a plane to Cleveland to join up with John Dorsey. Browns will draft a quarterback and have him sit and learn like the dumb ass Chiefs should have done with "Chuck and Duck" Mahomes. The stupid ass fans calling for Mahomes didn't watch him in college. Anyone gets withing 5 yards of him and he chucks it up for grabs. It takes 4 to 5 years to for a quarterback to get ready for everyday play. Deshon Watson was/is a rare exception. As for lard ass Reid. Same "One and Done" for 20 years. He simply can't get a team over the hump. His chock factor is above 100.00. The wheelchair pumping pervert that inherited the team from daddy will not fire the fat man as long as the stands are half full. Let it get down to 88/89 levels where there are 15 to 25 thousand fans and the Santa Clause looking dipshit will be on the first train out of Killa City that has a feeding car.

Young Sheldon has had a couple of cocktails so forgive the spelling ....."choke" and "Claus"

We are a slightly above average team with no real star, we had the division handed to us and quite frankly the entire division sucked like I’ve never seen it before. There was no way we would get past round two if we won yesterday. Until clark decides to invest in players and coaches this will always be the end result. At least I remember when we won a super bowl and they actually had star players (more then one) on the team and an amazing coach. The fans deserve better, I’m likely to not see them be super bowl material again in my lifetime, but hey, at least I got to see them win it all once a very very long time ago something you guys might never ever see in your lifetime

I have heard so much pissing and moaning about the so called bad calls in the game yesterday. If these calls were so bad then why wasn't Reid advised to challenge the ruling?

But then armchair coaches have always been smarter than an NFL coach or a NFL referee.

Really proud of the Chiefs this year!
I am ready to up to $75 for parking and $12 for a hotdog. $20 for a beer is worth it. And a nice t-shirt Inwoukd pay &50.
I am ready and willing except for one thing:
I won’t be watching any NFL Chiefs. One reason- Marcus Peters... his behavior was horrible again yesterday- what a baby. I’ve seen babies act better.
Be hard on the Chiefs fans... they choked again on a trap game and Karma wants Peters gone... maybe Cleveland needs a water boy

at some point it becomes hard to be very sympathetic to spoiled brats and that point is when they lose.

The fallacy - Mahomes was great vs the Broncos, praised for having a great game, while Denver's QB Lynch is denigrated. The reality - Lynch outplayed Mahomes as a review affirms.

Lynch had a better QB rating, better completion %, better yards per attempt average, 2 td passes to Mahomes 0, and, Lynch did so in fewer pass attempts; one long pass (in more attempts) allowed Mahomes a small edge yards passing, while Lynch had more yards rushing that Mahomes despite fewer rush attempts. Demerits: each QB victim a fumble via a bad snap or sack, Lynch threw 2 ints to Mahomes 1; Mahomes also threw two other wild ducks up for grabs that are ints more often than not & offer a prelude into the wing & a prayer scenario that will likely play out KC same in 2018.

All that and Mahomes was better? Only on planet Chiefs, and according those looking through red & gold aka rose colored glasses.

Other 'yeah but' rationale KC: we won/scoreboard! A 'team' wins and a 'team' loses, not an individual, so that aspect is moot. Chiefs defense was able to bail out Mahomes, KC the beneficiary an even poorer Broncos offense.

Upshot: contrary the KC party line, neither team or QB was impressive, both had several starters missing on defense & offense (Denver's case 3 starters were out defense, and more departed as the meaningless game for Denver wore on.) Those are the 'objective' facts in lieu subjective 'homer' facts same. Anyone who buys into 'Mahomes is a star' and 'KC will be great 2018' is in for another rude awakening next season; wait till next year finding no end.

"disbelief, bitterness and resentment"

It's just sports, it's not like we're all fortysomething bloggers living out our fantasy of grandeur

It’s all just entertainment. With ESPN and players politicizing the game more people will go elseware for entertainment. All the entertainers have gotten rich and believe that everyone idolizes them now maybe Hollywood and sports world can wake up to see where the money comes from.

So Alex not being able to score in the second half is peters fault? Peters was a big help in holding them to only 3 points in the first half. I say no one showed up in the second half especially the offense
