KC Chiefs Have Been A Bad Preseason Team For A While


The latest Associated Press article takes a look at the Kansas City Chiefs and their awful preseason record over the last few years.

Since 2004, the Chiefs are 7-28 in the preseason, including the three games this season. Four of those seasons they went winless with 0-4 records. The last winning preseason for the Chiefs came in 2003 when Dick Vermeil was head coach. And even then the Chiefs needed an extra game -- the Hall of Fame game -- to get into the winning column at 3-2.

In that stretch, the Chiefs have won nine or more games three times. They've lost 12 or more games three times. They've won seven games twice. So there's not much of a correlation between the Chiefs awful preseason record and the regular season record.

A bad record in the preseason may not mean anything but it sure doesn't help my morale. It's such a downer when you talk about a game all week, get excited for it and then see the Chiefs go out there and lay a dud. Annoying, but not the end of the world.

I'm ready for the games that count.
