Chiefs Are Looking Historically Bad


How the ’06 Raiders won 2 games is still a mystery to me. That team was so painful to watch that I began to question my sanity after the 10th week of the season.

Now as bad as the ’06 Raiders were, I’m starting to think that the 2012 Chiefs could be even worse. That would put KC into an infamous and all too unwanted category of worst team ever.

How the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs will win another game this year is a mystery not even Columbo would take on. They still have yet to lead for a single second of regulation football and they have a win. The KC offense is more impotent than Hugh Hefner after an all-night whiskey bender. They’ve selected plenty of defensive players high in the draft yet as a unit couldn’t stop an armless man from picking his own nose.

Tonight the Chiefs embarrassed themselves in front of a national audience by losing 31-13 to the San Diego Chargers. Once again Norv Turner has been given a stay of execution but the same might not hold true for Scott Pioli.

On Pioli’s watch the Chiefs have gone from a playoff team to a collection of coaches and players that barely resembles an NFL franchise. The Three Stooges weren’t as bumbling nor did they inflict as much pain on themselves as these pathetic Chiefs.

Can’t in any way say I feel bad for the Chiefs or their faithful fans. The Pioli magic in New England was masked by the brilliance of Brady and the camcorder of Belichick.

So, Raider Nation, enjoy the misery being spread around Chiefs country these days. Let’s hope the Raiders take care of business when KC comes to the East Bay. Losing to the 2012 Chiefs could become more embarrassing than losing to the 2006 Raiders. Two teams (cough, Arizona, Pittsburgh, cough, cough) know that pain of losing to the pre-JaMarcus Raiders. So far only New Orleans understands the agony that is losing to the pre-Matt Barley Chiefs.

    as a chiefs fan, I agree with all that is in this article.

    When the raiders play the chiefs, you need do only one thing to win, sit back and let the chiefs beat themselves somehow.

    How raiders beat the chiefs: just show up, stack the box and put pressure on whatever QB is standing in for the chiefs that drive. Most teams can beat this set up by passing short and beyond the numbers toward the sidelines since you expose 1on1 coverage of the defense with skilled WRs and a competent QB. But the chiefs lack these things. They’ll throw interceptions if you have 1on1 coverage and one deep safety. And running will be a parade of fumbles ripe for a stacked defense box to pick up. So there is the game plan. Each team that employed it has beat the chiefs easy. Raiders should be able to stack the box with 7 and still guard against the pass. And with the pressure up front I suspect the routine 3 to 4 fumbles on the chiefs part are secured for raiders to enjoy.
