So I'm sick and tired of thinking about the Raiders game. We lost, for a lot of different reasons, and that really bites. I can't seem to shake the negative feeling that is hovering over me like a cloud, though.
So what to do? Well, there's this option
But... my current depression seems to be giving me this attitude
So naturally, the best thing to do for my laziness is clearly a fanpost that will restore my good mood and give me a little peace of mind. But what? After all, we just came off a tough road loss and are now only a half game up in our division. My Chiefs let me down this Sunday with a very, very sloppy game. What could possibly cheer me up after that?
Then I was given an order
Well, I'm hardly going to argue with one of the Founding Fathers, am I? At least, I think he's one of the Founding Fathers... I suppose he could just be some fella on a horse in a hat... but I digress.
To get to the point, I thought that perhaps others here could use a little pick-me-up (especially with Porkchop onto bigger and better things), so here you go. I want to take you down memory lane with a little game I'm going to call "Remember When". So...
Derrick Johnson was trade bait that would never be better than WILDLY inconsistent?
Matt Cassel was throwing just as many interceptions as touchdowns?
Romeo Crennel was over the hill and out of touch, as proven by his Cleveland Browns teams?
Todd Haley had lost the locker room and would never be able to lead this team?
Jamaal Charles was ready to quit because he was never going to get more than 10 carries in a game (I know, I know, he didn't get a lot on Sunday. Turns out he was a little hurt. So that's that) and was "humiliated" by our assistant coach?
Do you also remember when...
Brandon Albert would never make a good LT?
Ron Edwards was a horrible NT?
Shaun Smith wouldn't be able to make a difference on the line?
Casey Weigmann and Ryan Lilja weren't going to help the O-line?
Our team was "under investigation" for our "mistreatment of Page" (man, how quick did THAT little drama evaporate...) and was falling apart?
Great memories all! While were on the subject, do you remember when...
Corey Mays was a starting ILB?
We had the slowest safety tandem in the NFL?
people were complaining about our draft class? (granted, that was a short-lived experience)
Sean Ryan was our starting TE?
Barry Richardson was a revolving door at RT?
Man, this nostalgia is making me teary-eyed. Remember when...
Tamba Hali would never be a great pass rusher?
Glenn Dorsey was a "bust"?
We were considered a reach to win more than 5-6 games this year?
We thought it was a huge improvement to have 22 sacks an entire season, because we were coming off a season with 10? (We're on pace for 38, in case you were wondering)
Man oh man, a few more memories before I'm done. Remember when...
We had the 4th worst defense in the NFL in points allowed at 26.5 per game?
We had one of the worst offenses in the league?
We were giving up an average of almost 3 sacks a game?
We had no players that even WE thought were worthy of Pro Bowl consideration?
Last, but not least, my favorite memory (in a way). Remember when...
We were 1-7 through our first 8 games of the year?
I remember. Now let's go beat the Donkeys.
