I heard an interesting discussion on 610 Sports last week with Bob Fescoe and Adam Teicher with the question of whether the 2010 Kansas City Chiefs would be remembered for how it all started or how it finished. Teicher says it'll be remembered for how it finished.
I can see that side of things considering it was another playoff loss in a jumble of playoff losses. The end result is ultimately what people remember.
But there's an argument to be made that the 2010 Chiefs will (or should) be remembered for how they started. The excitement from Monday Night Football and the 3-0 start never really left -- for me at least. I had a hard time getting out of the we-shouldn't-be-here thought process.
Ideally, in the future, the Chiefs are remembered for how they finish, even if it is another playoff loss. That means they would be expected to be in the playoffs which is the goal. It'll be interesting to see how the Chiefs transition from the we're-just-happy-to-be-here feeling to being in the playoffs year in and year out.
What do you say?
