Chiefs Look Lackadaisical Against Last Year's Losers

What progress Kansas City Chiefs fans saw in the first two preseason games was completely dashed by the Miami Dolphins tonight in a 24 to 0 loss.

Don't look for any semblance of progress by the Chiefs in their third preseason game- there wasn't any.

The Miami Dolphins, 1-15 last season, played smarter, faster and harder in virtually every facet of the football game. In fact, a Chiefs fan would be hard pressed to find any series of plays on offense or defense to applaud. Despite three turnovers by the Dolphins (the Chiefs had four), the offense was not able to generate any points.

But you know what? This is the preseason. You'd love to see progress, any progress, but I'm not calling for anyone's head. Our team is young, missing plenty of starting players due to injury and still learning a new offensive system under a new offensive coordinator. To expect anything beyond major growing pains, especially early on, is setting yourself up for disappointment. The preseason is too small a sample to garner any solid analysis.

Breathe deep, let it out and look forward to next week against the St. Louis Rams.

Patience. Patience. Be patient. Please?
