Second-Game Post-Game Not Gonna Let It Get Me Down Red-N-Gold Blues, Part Deaux

Well now, what have we here? Why yes, I do believe it's called a losing streak. Our Royals were touted for months as being the young, talented, up-and-coming team and what happens? They open the home part of the season with an historic 10-game losing streak. I'm not making this up. By falling off the face of the Great Chart of High Expectations and tying a 100 year old record, the Royals ended their reason for a season in less than 3 weeks.

Sadly, the Chiefs are threatening to do the very same thing and in the same amount of time as the Royals, you dig? You're picking up what I'm throwing down here, right? We're all on the same page, the same cliff, the same Great Depression Chart, all shaking our heads and asking "Why me?" of the great football gods (though our pleas land on deaf ears, at least thus far). Must we sacrifice BBQ and Beer?

It's tough being a Chiefs fan ...

So, we're all agreed ot's the coaching. No, wait. We're all agreed it's the level of talent. No, that's not it. I know, we're all agreed it's "something" even if there are 173 different theories, we know it has to be SOMETHING. And deep in our bleeding red-and-gold hearts we hope and pray that whatever "it" is, that it goes away sooner rather than later. Like yesterday would have been nice, but you get the idea. It has to stop now or we can just forget about any dreams of a perfect season. Are you with me, brothers and sisters? Can I get an amen?

I knew I could! So, guess what? Tomorrow the Sun will rise (alright, technically the Sun only APPEARS to rise due to the rotation of the Earth) and coffee will taste good and I'll be thankful for another day on this planet and smile, because sometimes that's all you can do, and sometimes it's the best thing to do, especially when you can't realistically do much else, right? Look, either the Chiefs are inherently good enough to win at least SOME games in the Big Boy League or they aren't, and I have no doubt they can win at least ONE game, and if they can win one they can win two, or three or four or ... you see where I'm going? Once there was a man who swept up all the shit in his life into a pile, and felt SO good about himself because finally, at long last, he could truthfully and honestly say that he had his shit together. Thing is, a truck came by and scattered all the guy's shit, so he had to sweep it up all over again. The moral, of course, is that it simply isn't enough to have your shit together. You have to DO something with it. The same goes for the Chiefs. Coaching, talent, it's all in place, I believe ... we have what it takes, but we're not getting it done. Yet.

So, here's the deal. It sucks, yeah it does. The boys in red done dug themselves a hole and are taking our hearts and hopes and pride down with them. We all know what's at stake, but at the same time we all know that things can turn around in a hurry in the Enn Eff Ell. Unfortunately for The Good Guys, it has to change like NOW or it's the end of civilization as we know it (or something like that). I refuse to point out any one aspect of the Chiefs as being The Cause, because honestly I think it's a gestalt thing. Not any one thing, but rather a collective everything all at once. After all, football is the ultimate team sportt no matter what Broncos fans think of Peyton Manning. The Chiefs will and do rise and fall as a team, just as our hopes and dreams for the team rise and fall as one collective entity.

Will the Chiefs rise from the nearly dead to become a powerhouse 1-2 team and threaten to salvage the 2012 season? Let's hope so, because a loss nest week means it's going to be a very long year, both for the team AND for fans. A loss and some of us will file for divorce due to irreconciliable differences, and we'll be represented by MNchiefsfan, case closed. A win, on the other hand, and anything is possible (if not probable) and we can spend another week of being proud and feeling good about our team again. Maybe even that winter vacation in New Orleans. All the Chiefs need to do is beat one of the best teams in the league, led by one of the best QB in the league. Hey, we got this! Good times, man, good times. Bon Temps Football. Let us pray.
