Other Reactions to Yesterday's Loss

New, comments

KC Chiefs Fanatic:

Herm Edwards said it best when he mentioned that "this is probably the worst game we’ve played all season," and I couldn’t agree more with him. The Chiefs could have lined up a traveling troupe of baboons from Africa and they wouldn’t have played any worse than the real team did today.
Adam Teicher, of The Kansas City Star:
The Chiefs lost to the Steelers last season by the similar score of 45-7. They had the sense then after losing to the defending Super Bowl champions that they merely were caught in the wrong place on the wrong day.

There was no such sense this time. This one was more about the Chiefs than their opponents.

Jason Whitlock, of The Kansas City Star:
This season can only end on a positive note if the Chiefs get a top-five draft pick out of it and a chance to nab tackle Jake Long or quarterbacks Matt Ryan and Brian Brohm.

Sunday’s 41-7 loss to the Denver Broncos could be problematic. It was the kind of embarrassing, gutless performance that motivates players and coaches to finish the season with pride.

Bob Gretz, KCFX:
Well, I’ve been covering the Chiefs since 1981. Leonard (Dawson), you and I have seen some bad football in the 1980s. I would have to say this is as bad a football as it was then. It is total domination (by Denver). You got to go back to 1987 and 1988, the Frank Gansz years.
Josh Alper, AOL Fanhouse:
They mustered 16 yards on the ground against a Bronco unit that has spent the past three months being used as a glorified scout team by their opponents. Brodie Croyle was sacked five times, fumbled twice and threw an interception. He did complete more than half his passes, 15-of-29, but for just 132 yards and never, ever threatened to make this game anything but the laugher that it was. It was a totally embarrassing performance that has to make Kansas City seriously question if anyone but Tony Gonzalez and Dwayne Bowe have any reason to return next week, let alone next season.
And the Chiefs' season long quest for two straight solid halves of football continues...
