Why Rooting for Chiefs to Lose Now is OK

I want to start by saying this I'm a competitor. I'm the type of guy if you beat me in basketball or playing cards we are going keep playing till I win. I love to win and I love to see my sports teams win, but I'm also a realist and I also understand how NFL system works. It doesn't pay for your team to be mediocre in the long run. Which if Chiefs finish at 6-10 or 7-9 again that isn't going help our situation. Its already been overstated how long its been since this organization drafted a Qb in the 1st rd of the draft 1983 to be exact. That has to change in next year's draft. It starts with us putting ourselves in the best position to get one. As a fan I see nothing wrong with doing that.

The Colts now have done this twice. In 1997 the Colts won 3 games and the next year drafted Peyton Manning. Then they went on to have 10 plus winning seasons, and a Vince Lombardi trophy to show for it. Then last yr they won 2 games only to take Andrew Luck in this year's draft. Luck considered by many to be best QB prospect since John Elway. So NFL has a system in place that being really bad gives you an opportunity to draft a franchise QB that can change the fortune of an organization forever. I am for the Chiefs taking advantage of a system so many teams have done for years now.

Before this game against the Bucs, I was hoping we could rally and still win the division. I understand the winner of the division probably going to be a 9 to 10 win team just because Chargers and Broncos aren't that good either so someone has to win it, but after dropping to 1-5 there isn't anyway this thing going to get turned around with this current regime. We just have too many odds stacked against us. From having bad quarterback play from Matt Cassel,which he is currently in the top 3 among Qbs in turnovers this yr. He also has the 3rd worst QB rating in the league going into yesterday's game. Then their is Romeo coaching and post game comments. His defenses always to seem to come out flat. The guys are not coming out ready to play at beginning of games and I don't see any adjustments coming out of halftime. Then their are the coaching decisions where we choose to punt at end of the 1st half of the Ravens game is still mind bottling to me. Then you look at Saints game where late in the 4th quarter with over a minute left in the game inside the Saints 35 yard line we kicked a field goal and played for overtime instead of going for the game winning touchdown. Did Romeo not know the new overtime rule now is if you get the ball 1st in overtime you still have to score touchdown to win the game. So you have to ask yourself do you trust Matt Cassel inside 35 yard line of the Saints to score a touchdown before the end of regulation or going 80 yards down the field in overtime to win it with a touchdown. Yea we won the game but lady luck played her part in that too. Even though we won the game still doesn't excuse how dumb of a decision it was by Romeo to do that.

Then their are the penalties, drops, and fumbles which once again is on the coaches to get these guys take care of the little things. Like knowing the snap count, how important it is to hang on to football, proper technique in catching ball with your hands not your body, etc. I still standby this is the most talented team in the division, but the coaches just not putting them in the best position to be successful. Then their is his post game comments like he doesn't know what happen today. He doesn't have an answer for why the team plays bad week after week. Well if you don't have the answers and you're the head coach who the HELL suppose to have the answers then?

Now that brings me to my point of it being OK for fans rooting for the Chiefs to lose this year,because that shows you're a smart and a very educated fan. You understand how the system works. You understand with using this season as a sacrificial lamb means you'll get what we all want which is change. A new GM, a new head coach, and finally a franchise QB. You rooting for Chiefs to lose this year doesn't make you less of a fan neither does still hoping Chiefs turn it around this year makes you more of a fan. I'm just under the realization now that with a bad head coach and a bad QB this is what you get the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs. A team that finds ways to lose games and set records of futility. Like being on pace to threaten an NFL record of 63 turnovers, or obliterating the NFL all-time turnover differential record which currently stands at -30 set by 1965 Steelers we're on pace for -52, and also we're a team that still hasn't had a lead through 6 games into the season which has to be record somewhere. So as a fan its easier to swallow these losses as they continue to mount and trust me they will. If you accept the fact it will bring the change we've all been waiting 29 years for (drafting a franchise QB).
