[I posted this after the colts game and it quickly fell into obscurity, so here it goes again a little edited.]
Two opinions will be had after the course of this season.
1. This loss certifies that the Kansas City Chiefs we all adore are simply cursed at least for this next regime. Why? Because this loss has broken the majority of this teams player's psyche. Reid and Dorsey might make us contenders but it will be just like the days of Martyball, good but not good enough. Make it to the playoffs only to choke. Same old Chiefs! Even when Manning leaves Denver and they collapse we'll still be going one and done in the playoffs or choking in the AFC title game as 14-2 AFC west champs #1 seed. They simply don't have the mentality to win it all. Its why Philly ditched Reid and San Fran did Smith the same. Then we will collapse. Only very slowly because of Reid's prior success. Then maybe but probably not, the next regime will get to the promised land. Either way might as well quit caring until that day comes because it is not worth the heartache!
2. We lost Jamaal Charles in the first quarter of the game. Lost Knile, B-Flow, and Justin Houston later. Shit happens sometimes you lose get over it. This was the first year of the rebuild from Piolio's dumpster fire. And you know what it was pretty good compared to most teams'. Now what we need is to draft and develop an elite free safety, get another burner WR, 2 or 3 more pass rushers either at DL or OLB and an above average TE and this team will not only win a Super Bowl but will establish a dynasty that Doreido will sustain for decades through smart drafts and aggressive free agency. Main point is this team is on the rise and will be going into year two expecting Super Bowl or bust where most teams' fans go into year two expecting a similar result of this season. We are set for the future.
If you are still reading this rant consider the emotions tied with these two perspectives when you read them contrasted with your own of the Chiefs. Depending on the type of person you are you either found one to be rational and the other to be ludicrous or perhaps you felt both were a bit extreme and fall somewhere in between. As for me, I feel that both are as likely as they are improbable because I don't believe the future is predetermined and would rather not contend that such will happen as such this way cuz I say GERBLARH!!. Ahem excuse me. Anyway both could happen is what I'm trying to say. I'm just gonna sit back and watch what happens. Thanks for reading if you made it this far. I know the article may not have really had a subject but I work at an auto parts store so yeah. Feel free to debate in the comments. GO CHIEFS!
