I know, I know. It's just the preseason. Wins don't matter.
But for this team it's a little different. Younger teams with little experience winning need to get that taste of victory in their mouth. They need that confidence and that momentum to keep it going.
Of the Chiefs four wins in 2009, three game in a five-week stretch. They actually won two in a row at one point. I think that they fed off of that momentum to keep some of those victories going.
It's most important that the first team plays well but the Chiefs aren't particularly deep at any position so some of the guys playing in the third and fourth quarter will be playing a role with the Chiefs in 2010.
They need to play well and they need to get a victory.
I think I'm in the minority on this one but I'd like to hear what you all think. Do the Chiefs need a win?
