There you have it folks the Kansas City Chiefs have failed.
Once again on Sunday the Chiefs failed to win a Super Bowl, which they haven't done since 1970 in Super Bowl IV or even a playoff game, a drought stretching back to 1994 and Joe Montana. With the loss to the Atlanta Falcons the Chiefs were unable to get their hands on any silverware.
This team has had its ups and downs but after Sunday the 2012 NFL season is another down.
Romeo Crennel, in his post game press conference, came out with the usual elaborate excuses and clumsy clichés:
"...the season is a marathon; it's not a sprint"
"...we weren't able to win this one; we have at least 15 more to play"
But there's no fooling us educated fans, you can talk about the 'next game' and 'improvement' and 'the process' all you want but there's no sugar coating the fact that the Chiefs weren't hoisting the Lombardi trophy on Sunday, and anything less than that was a failure. There were absolutely no positives from the game, nothing but negatives:
So what happened to our 'elite' pass rusher huh? He was absolutely invisible on Sunday, failing to get any pressure or even register a tackle on the stat sheet. This guy is getting paid millions of dollars and he doesn't even bother to show up on gameday, an absolute travesty if you ask me. He should be cut as soon as possible and an impact player brought in, because this ain't cutting it.
The cornerback that we have been claiming is at least Pro Bowl worthy was a complete joke and got destroyed by the Falcons average aerial attack, consisting of the unknowns of Julio Jones, Roddy White (who?) and Tony Gonzalez (I mean would any of these guys even crack the starting line-up on other NFL teams?). The receivers he was assigned to cover constantly ran free, practically uncovered. I mean if these are the guys we're paying millions to, do we even stand a chance?
Clearly Scott Pioli has his priorities wrong. He let Brandon Carr walk in the off season, where he got paid chump change to pay for the Cowboys (I don't know the specifics of the deal but I hear it was very reasonable), and from the sounds of it he picked off Eli Manning seven times in the season opener. The guy Pioli replaced him with Jacques Reeves hadn't played in two years because he's so bad.
The players echoed Romeo Crennel after the game:
Stanford Routt: "We’ve got to bounce back against Buffalo next week". No Stanford there is no next week in the NFL, you failed.
Eric Berry: "We are going to work on that this week and get better." What point is there in trying to get better Eric? It's over.
So there you have it, another miserable performance from the Kansas City Chiefs that failed to bring home a Super Bowl, let alone a playoff victory.
The only minuscule positive that could possibly be gained is that these teams also failed to win a Super Bowl this week:
