Broncos, Manning Up Nest For Chiefs' Dead-Last Offense from KC Star

"We have to do everything in our power to be the best we can be, to be perfect," Crennel said. "That's what I told them. We need to be perfect. That's the only way we have a chance."

Perfection has been far from the Chiefs reach this season, seemingly never more so than in Sunday's 28-6 loss to Cincinnati at Arrowhead Stadium. They failed to score so much as 20 points for the sixth straight game and fell to 32nd and last in the NFL in scoring for the first time this season.

Eye On: The Kansas City Chiefs from The Denver Post

The coaching adage "If you have two quarterbacks, you don't really have a quarterback" holds true in Kansas City. Against the Bengals, starter Matt Cassel was benched for the second half and replaced by former Bronco Brady Quinn. Neither threw for 100 yards and the Chiefs failed to reach the end zone. Media covering the Chiefs expect Quinn to get the start Sunday vs. the Broncos.

Chiefs Waiting To Hit Bottom During 7-Game Skid from The Associated Press via The Oklahoman

They've been ravaged by injuries, lead the league in turnovers, can't settle on a quarterback and are now dealing with a full-fledged fan rebellion, which has resulted in people dressed in black occupying the seats at Arrowhead Stadium, and fliers calling for the general manager's job...

"...We love Kansas City. We're not upset at our fans," linebacker Andy Studebaker said. "They have a right to be upset. In the NFL, you have to create a home-field advantage. It doesn't just show up for you. It's a two-way street with us and the fans."

Arrowhead Stadium Now Has Baghead Fans from The Pitch

There are levels of shame for fanbases. And the tradition of wearing a paper bag with eye cutouts stands somewhere between face-painted child weeping on national television and grown man wearing a baseball glove without that child next to him. Yesterday on the broadcast of the Kansas City Chiefs' 28-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, a pair of baghead fans had their moment on camera.

Obit Claims Man Died Of "Heartbreaking Disappointment" From Chiefs Football from CBS Sports

Nothing's funnier than a man firing from the grave at his beloved, struggling football team. That's exactly what Lickteig did. It might not make the Chiefs better any time soon, but it definitely reminds us all just how horrible they really are right now.

Major Surprises Still Possible, Even This Late In Season from USA Today

WR Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs (no receptions): After scoring three times in the first four weeks and averaging 80 yards in those games, Bowe has bottomed out. Kansas City's season is slipping away - the Chiefs have scored two offensive touchdowns in the last six weeks. Bowe left with a possible concussion, which only makes next week more unattractive. Running back Jamaal Charles now is the only reasonable fantasy play on the team, and even then only for moderate yardage, not touchdowns.
