Kansas City Chiefs Stay Losing 27-24 To Bengals: Who Should We Blame?!?

TKC has a few suggestions for placing blame that start with so many b-list brands and every elected official who jumped aboard the team's bandwagon in the past few years.

But, ultimately it's up to our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY to serve as the voice of reason.

Even better, friend of the blog Super Dave shares a bit of wisdom in this darkest hour of the Kansas City COVID winter 2022 . . . 

"The Chiefs got a taste of their own overtime medicine . . . Here's a prediction I made back in September: 

"What's interesting is a lot of the predictions by sports reporters are not as positive of the Chiefs winning the 2022 Super Bowl as, say, Vegas is . . . I say they will win the division maybe make the Super Bowl but be defeated again the second year in a row. There are three really strong teams the Chiefs need to watch this year who I think can be the ones to easily take another Super Bowl win away from the Chiefs. - SD September 10, 2021"

For context . . . 

Let's not forget that back in August of 2021 Patrick Mahomes was predicting an undefeated season. 

And here we are, a great many disappointed Kansas City denizens who might be overlooking all of the good times this season held.

And so we hope to comfort Chiefs fans, hope they keep their heads held high and enjoy a constant Kansas City sports fan refrain . . . 

We'll get'em next season.

Nevertheless . . . 

Obviously . . . We blame Jackson Mahomes for all of this.

WE'RE KIDDING!!! Even our silly post title only hopes to poke a bit of fun at the worsening Internets culture of trolling that has also gripped the world of politics.

Accordingly, here are a few of our favorite TKC news items from today's game . . .
