I feel better.



Week one of the 2011 season has come to an end, and guess what, the Chiefs are tied for second third place in the AFC west. That’s right, despite the unfortunate series of events that has plagued the Chiefs as of late, we’re still in the running. The Chiefs may have had their butts handed to them on a proverbial platter, but unless you’re playing Fantasy Football, or deciding who goes to the play offs in a tie-breaker, how many points you win or lose by doesn’t mean a thing. A loss is just a loss. One loss. The AFC west is still up for grabs, and I, for one, am not real impressed with our competition after week one.

Sure McFadden lead the NFL in rushing this week, but I still say the scariest guy on the Raiders is Sebastian "no-such-thing-as-outta-range" Janikowski. Seriously, this guy kicks harder than a mule being poked by a redneck wearing velcro gloves. But, the Raiders are still just the Raiders. Penalty ridden, and, I predict, will be inconsistent from week to week.

The Broncos lost their home opener. Orton had a 52.2 completion rating and a 1:1 touch down to interception ratio. By the end of the game, the crowd was calling for Tebow. This doesn’t bode well for Broncos fans.

The Chargers won at home against the Vikings, but I tell you what, the Chargers nearly lost this one. I know I said above that a loss is a loss, and equally, a win is a win, but in my opinion, the Chargers are going to have to play better than they did on Sunday if they want to lock the division.

So, Tony Moe-hawkeye is out. Eric Cap’n Crunch Berry is out. Cassel’s ribs are more tender than slow cooked BBQ. But, you know what? We’re tied for second third place in our division. We have 15 more games to play. It’s no where near time to write the Chiefs off despite what every major sports publication may have you think. I, for one, feel better today. It’s a new week and a new chance to be a contender on the field. Go Chiefs.
