In less than 12 hours the 9-0 Kansas City Chiefs
will kick off in Denver against the 8-1 broncos. We have waited for this match up for weeks. Sports writters snd media outlets have presented thier predictions and stats to back their claims. Fan bases have trashed talked in circles for weeks now defending thier favorite team.
Game day rituals have begun and there are far more people than we know wearing dirty jerseys (you know who you are) and sporting unshaved beards. As much as I want to wait and see how this game plays out, I have cracked under the pressure to go to the Red Crystal ball and look into the near future and beyond.
I traveled to the secret cavern deep below my Moms closet hidden by her Joe Montanna jersey to the shrine of Derrick Thomas. Yes! Right where I left it. The Red Crystal ball with Arrowheads carved all around. As I peered into the crystal the bbq smoke began to clear as Payton Manning was prepared to take the first snap.
As my heart was pounding to the beat of Tamba I was ready for the pass rush of the Chiefs to dominate the front line. The ball is snapped as the lines colide... just as I see Huston beat his man Payton hands the ball off for a 4 yard gain. With no time to watch a replay the ball is ready to snap again. "here it comes" I say to myself. "here comes the pass" and just then, like before, another 4 yard run.
At that moment it dawns on me. If the broncos run the ball then we have no pass rush. This could be a long game. Has the mighty Chiefs pass rush been grounded by denvers run game? Wait a second.... denver has a run game? I didnt see a single stat on this!!! As I reach for my cell phone to call Bob Sutton I am confronted with the harsh reality that I dont have service in Moms closet!!!
Who will warn coach Ried and company? Knowing that the run game is a trap for Brandon Flowers
and Eric Berry
I simply can not watch the game unfold and see the outcome of a long deep ball from Payton when our D is dialed in to stop the run... the future of this game is simply to much for one man to know.
Just as my hopes of defeating the broncos fade away the Red Crystal ball fills with the smoke of tailgaters at Arrowhead... the season is lost. The dream of 10-0 is gone and a grown man weeps in his mothers closet. Just then an image appears. Its... its Tom Brady
raising his his arms to the sky in a victory celebration as the Patriots
defeat the broncos!!!
I jump from moms pile of nitting and let out a primal yell as hope has been restored and a new matchup at Arrowhead awaits against the 10-1 Chiefs and the 9-2 broncos... This time its personal. This time its for the AFC West and home field thru the playoffs! Go Chiefs!!!!!
