SUPER BOWL ANTICLIMAX AFTERMATH: KANSAS CITY CHIEFS MISSED SHOT AND WILL DISAPPOINT NEXT SEASON, TOO!!!
The Super Bowl 2019 offered a stunning example of late capitalism in action -- All sizzle, hype, sound & fury in service of a lackluster show that ultimately disappointed everybody.
What's worse is that right now Kansas City fanboys are sitting at home thinking that Pat Mahomes would've provided a much greater spectacle to fans across the nation. As always, and as most married people understand, the story of unrealized possibility and potential is the only respite and hope for people enduring otherwise miserable circumstances.
However . . . One inconvenient fact remains:
NEXT SEASON THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS WILL STRUGGLE TO LIVE UP THE IRRATIONAL EXUBERANCE SURROUNDING THE TEAM!!!
Kansas City Chiefs early favorites to win Super Bowl LIV next season
The Chiefs are likely to suck 2019. The myth that the team will follow the footsteps of the KC Royals and got close this year only to win it all next season is simply a marketing gimmick. More likely, they'll follow the home team into a valley of despair because that's the path of least resistance.
Patrick Mahomes is a now a known commodity. Defenses have mostly figured him out and close watchers realize that under pressure he isn't as amazing as highlight reels suggest.
The defense is weak. This one is acknowledged even by fanboys and a few standouts aside, the hope that replacing Bob Sutton will solve this problem is nothing more than puerile fantasy.
Most importantly . . .
The front office has shown time and time again that they aren't willing to sacrifice a consistent effort or cash to put a great team on the field year after year. Even the QB is a surprise value pick. History has shown us that we can count on the organization to overplay and oversell their hand just enough to trick gullible KC season ticket holders.
Moreover . . .
The football industry is losing share of mind and relevance . . . Compared to this let down game, in the past few months Fortnite was a much bigger deal.
And so, as usual, Sunday night concludes with disappointment and fantasy as Kansas City dreams and imagines glory from a byone era.
