Gotta agree with the submitter of this headline.  There is no way in hell that the Chiefs are going to beat the Bucs or the Jaguars in the playoffs.  I don't even know if they could beat Florida State or Baylor, let alone any SEC team.  Good lord, they're terrible.  Any team that goes 9-1 has serious issues.

I agree. Just look at their schedule. Jags, cowboys, raider, giants, browns, bills, eagles, etc..

Anyone could have gone 9-1 with that schedule. Well, except anyone on that schedule.

As an Eagles fan let me tell you I am STUNNED that a team Andy Reid inherited with a solid defense, an all-pro running back, a half-decent mobile QB and low-rent wideouts started the season strong but then got exposed by a better team in a high-pressure game. Stunned and flabbergasted, am I.

1) I don't know where this wave of "delusional" fans were that thought we were the best team in the NFL was, because I sure as hell didn't know any of them. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good, and what were the fans supposed to do with the team going 9-0 after last year's nightmare season- sulk and say, "We still suck. None of this matters because we're just going to get bounced out of the playoffs in the first round anyway."?

2) I love how getting beat by 10 against the team that HAS widely been crowned as the best team in the NFL (despite having a nearly identical "easy" schedule) and holding a record-setting offense to their lowest point total of the season "exposes" the Chiefs, but when a media darling like the Colts gets blown out by a mediocre Rams team it's just a bad game.

IT'S ONE farkING GAME! A loss to a divisional opponent at their house is not the end of the season. Goddamnit.In two weeks, the Denver  Cocksuckers Broncos will be 9-3 and the Chiefs will be 11-1.

2013-11-18 08:44:11 AM  
The Chiefs defense is starting to look a little more average. The biggest question mark on the Broncos O-line was Clady, and he didn't allow a single guy past. Manning wasn't even touched all night.

Next week at Arrowhead will be a big game for the Chiefs.  If Rivers and the Chargers can keep the game close, or even win, then it's time for Chiefs fans to worry.

Have to agree with both points you made.
As a Chiefs fan for more than 20 years, ever since I was a kid, I will gladly take the 9-1 record right now, lucky or not, given the nightmare seasons of years past.  I'm glad that they're playing pretty good football and were very lucky up to now.  9-1 is a record that any NFL team right now would gladly have.
A few plays go a different way, and the Chiefs might be 10-0 and they still wouldn't get any respect.  Maybe some grudging respect, but it's going to be laced with faint praise.  ESPN and the rest of the sports experts will probably still think that the Chiefs still suck, they're the worst undefeated team ever, the Broncos weren't 100%, blah, blah, blah.
All of you at ESPN can go back to your Peyton Manning circle jerk bukakke session.

*eyeroll* Oh well thank God the ever important Power Rankings will be returned to their untouched state of purity and perfection! As a representative of Chiefs Nation, I would like to humbly apologize to the rest of the NFL fan base that our team dared to sully the sanctity of the Holiest of Holy's by winning their first 9 games! Had the Chiefs been aware of the sheer magnitude of the importance of Power Rankings, they surely would have forfeited the game with the Texans or Browns, to avoid this travesty.

That's probably what felled John Fox, when you think about it. Fox was on the golf course trying to relax, but his mind was ever turned back to the Power Rankings. He had the game plan set for San Diego already, he was confident that they would prevail, but BLAST! Those damn Chiefs and their undefeated record...MOCKING HIM! Mocking him so...the oval that represented the zero in their record, infinite perfection, no beginning nor end. How could he explain his feelings to his family, when they came to him in his study, eager for his attention, but were eternally rebuked? THE RANKINGS! No one understood their importance like he. There had to be a way...some key to figuring out the mystery! His army of course would meet the God-cursed enemy soon enough, but what remedy until then? How could he continue an entire two weeks, knowing?

The pass rush hasn't really been there since the Raider game, at least through ~3 quarters. They eventually got pressure late in the game against the Texans, Browns, and Bills when they had a lead and those teams were playing from behind (and more predictable on offense), but yeah, it's a little troubling.

At the end of the season the Chiefs are going to probably be 12-4, they'll be a wild card facing probably the Bengals in the first round, a game they'll probably win because they'll likely have home field. Then they'll probably have to go to either Denver or New England for the next playoff game, which they'll probably lose. At the end of the day, a 2-14 team improved by 10 games, won a playoff game for the first time in 20 years, and will start next season with a solid coaching staff/front office, solid starting QB, good run game, great defense, needing some help at WR and maybe some depth at offensive line.

In other words, life is good.

They'll put the Saints ahead of us for sure; even though they looked just OK against the Niners yesterday. Pats might jump us if they dominate tonight, but I don't think the Panthers would.
 
2013-11-18 09:17:17 AM  
I mean, anytime you can score 17 points on 14 drives, you know it's a good outing. As much I love to rag on the Chiefs*, they are miles ahead of where I thought they'd be this year. I think I had pegged them as around .500 or so. They've had incredible luck in facing 800 or so backup/3rd string QBs in a row, but you still have to beat the teams to win, even if it is your defense that ends up doing it for you.

The defense is very good. The offense can be borderline terrible.

*How about Lin Elliot guys?

Lost Thought 00: There is no way the selection committee should consider them for the championship game


Not with their SOS. There a few two loss teams that deserve to get to the big dance before they do.

Chief fans need to root for the Panthers tonight because they need have New England to be knocked off in order to have a chance.

Granted the Saints didn't do themselves any favors with the selection committee with their tepid play yesterday but still.

If they are the wild card (presumably #5 seed), they wouldn't have home field against the #4 seed, would they?

The Chiefs offense is decent, and being helped by a stunning defense. (As a Broncos fan, this sounds remarkably like the Tebow 'era') But what they've done by changing coaches and QBs is hugely impressive.

Jesus, there's a lot of Chiefs butthurt in here.

Guys, RELAX. It's one game, you played reasonably well (although I still cannot believe Manning didn't get knocked to the ground even ONE time), and you're going to have the clear advantage in two weeks.  And NO ONE gives a damn about Power Rankings.

Manning has been nursing that ankle all week and didn't practice until Thursday. We all know how hard manning works, so how much film do you think he watched of the KC D last week? I'm guessing every single play this year and many of them multiple times. I noticed his audibles seemed to be centered around stopping the rush last night.

Andy Reid has a really bad habit of not changing things up once the rest of the league figures out what he is doing. Manning had 9 games worth of film, and he made sure they didn't get close to him.

Good game tho, The Chiefs have no reason to panic.

As a bronco fan it's nice to see they can win with the running game.
