I never really imagined it would get to this point for me and my Kansas City Chiefs. I, like most of you fellow APers, love my Chiefs. My moods on game days move according to how the game is going. Normally on game days I get excited in anticipation for the game. I can barely sit still throughout the games when watching them at my house.
My fandom wavered a bit a few years ago, I wasn't following them as closely, I was in high school and the early years of college so I had what at the time I believed to be slightly more important things on my mind. I still watched games, but wasn't keeping up with all the intricacies of the team. But I started to get back into all things Chiefs around the 2009 season. After Pioli was hired I decided to get back on board for the rebuild and what I hoped was the subsequent success to follow. My brother bought season tickets beginning in the 2010 season. I was at every home game except for one, including the playoff loss. I can say that the 2010 home opener was the greatest sporting event I have ever been to and a game I will remember for the rest of my life. After that season I was hooked. Now the 2011 season had it's disappointments, but I blamed most of them on the injuries of our 3 starters and thought this season we would be back to the contention of 2010.
But as we all know this season has been a complete and utter disaster. I am normally a glass half full Chiefs fan and try to convince myself that things can turn around. Not anymore, before tonight's game I put my Chiefs gear on and headed to a buddy's house to watch the game. I had no expectations for a Chiefs win. When I got there I told him that I figured there would be a minimum of four turnovers in the game, two picks and a fumble for Cassel, and a fumble from somebody else. I didn't get angry as things were going wrong throughout the game, in fact I usually laughed at our overall ineptness.
The point of this post is pretty simple. It's time to clean house and start over. That means Cassel, Romeo, and Pioli. Every one of them. We deserve better than this. The fact that this team hasn't had a QB they drafted win a game in 25 years is unbelievable. We're halfway through our slate of games and haven't held a lead. If a firing of everyone doesn't occur and Clark let's Pioli pick a third head coach, and draft a QB, this Chiefs fan might take a break from this team. Hitting Clark at the bottom line is probably the only way the point can be made. So hopefully things will change and we can have a rebirth of this once great franchise with someone new at the helm.
Goodnight all and Save Our Chiefs.
