It's time for a "Vent Thread". I'm about to go off on a tangent, and some of it I'm serious about... Some of it not so much. But this is needed. I'm honestly not even sure where this is going. I'm just going to rant. Feel free to add your own rants in the comments. Therapy or something I guess.
You know what chaps my ass? This was supposed to be the year of change. The year that the Chiefs rose out of the putrid pit of mediocrity and cemented themselves as a young, talented squad capable of contending for a title every year. But no. Hell no. Instead millions of loyal Chiefs fans across the world are rewarded for decades of rabid fandom with this shit. This big, steaming pile of crap that Clark Hunt has rewarded us with makes a dead hamster look like a freaking Nintendo wii. That's a Bewsaf quote, for those of you fortunate enough to not have been investing far too much time in the Chiefs via AP, BTW. Millions of cap space, lukewarm attempts to fix the QB situation, lazy ass coaching hires... And this is the result. Crap.
But it goes far beyond just Clark. Oh yes, the stench of this crap wafts throughout the halls of Arrowhead, and has saturated the GMs office as well. Pioli deserves as much blame as anyone, as his pigheaded, arrogant methodology of the "Patriot Way" has done as much to cripple the Chiefs as anything Carl Peterson did in his final years. Somehow Pioli has managed to build up a decent roster, and then severely cripple it by keeping a sub par QB at the helm for 4 freaking years. Seriously, if a badass QB can mask a teams deficiencies, is it out of the realm of possibilities to think that a mediocre QB might do the opposite? Maybe... The problem with this theory is that the QB isn't the reason this crap has plagued us for 2 weeks now. No. The stench has also clung to the Head Coach.
Yeah. RAC deserves the lions share of this shit. The savior of the Chiefs defense has turned into a plague on the team as a whole. There is no leadership. There is no preparedness. There is no fire. No embarrassment. If Romeo wasnt beating the players in old school fashion with freshly cut switches, he needs his ass fired immidiately, and his grandfather card revoked. My grand dad would have beat the suck out of me had I ever put up a "professional" performance like this. He didn't fight Nazis and survive a real Depression just to see this generation of "tough guys" be ok with sucking ass like this. I'm absolutely shocked there is no one getting so freaking pissed about this crap that someone, ANYONE, isn't on the sidelines flipping Gatorade tables and kicking ball boys.
Which brings me to my next point. I want to see some emotion out of these scabs. DJ getting in his teammates' faces. Berry taking his anger out on offenses so hard that he hurts someone. Cassel getting so fed up with the criticism that he inexplicably starts kicking ass... And starts with Lilja. I want to see Peyton Hillis PROVE to us we got the better Peyton in the division. This is just pathetic. 2 weeks into the season, and the team is already feeding us the flat, emotionless company line of "we have to play better" with a glazed over look in their eyes. Fuck that. I want to hear DJ saying that the team is a huge disappointment, and that the fans SHOULD be ashamed in them. And then I want him to get tough and say that this shit won't happen again, that he won't allow it. Get mad. Get angry. Just don't get complacent, and definitely don't feed us this regurgitated "get better" crap again.
Yeah, probably the biggest issue I have is with the attitude of these posers. They're all apparently content to just pick up a paycheck, and that bullshit attitude likely starts all the way at the top with Clark. If money is so freaking important, maybe I need to start coveting mine the same way Clark and the players covet theirs? These overgrown man children that bicker over millions and then laugh it off when they don't deserve a penny of what they get? Maybe I should start building that deck I've been wanting? I could make it a Sunday project. Maybe I could take the family out on Sunday afternoons? God knows i could use my time far better if i stopped caring about these posers. Maybe I should stop caring about the Chiefs, because it's obvious they don't care enough about me to invest some of their time, money and effort into me. Their attitude from top to bottom stinks right now. And if this shit that we call a "professional" football team continues, finding something else to do on Sundays might end up being a welcome release from this misery.
I feel slightly better.
