Welcome to this week’s edition of Let’s Argue, a recurring series that looks at hot takes, unpopular opinions, wacky predictions and more from Kansas City Chiefs fans.
Arrowhead is not an advantage

Based on how this season has gone thus far, it’s hard to push back on this statement.
Going into the last regular-season home game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Chiefs are 4-4 at home. The last time the Chiefs had four or more home losses in a regular season was in 2012, when the team finished 2-14.
Arrowhead has been known as being the loudest outdoor stadium for quite some time now, but maybe the mystique is fading away.
Having said that, I would still be down for the sixth annual Arrowhead Invitational.
The Chiefs will represent the AFC

As things now stand, it appears the Chiefs are pretty much locked into the third postseason seed — which means they would probably play either the Miami Dolphins or Buffalo Bills on Wild Card Weekend.
Look... this team is capable of beating anyone if the offense could just get out of its own way. The problem is that we’ve been saying this for three months now.
Despite the offensive problems, the team is in every game until the end because of how elite the defense is. For the past five seasons, Patrick Mahomes and the offense have carried this team — but now, the tables have turned.
Brett Veach’s offseason will tell the story
This off-season will tell the story of Brett Veach.— SnoMan (@SNo_Man2168) December 28, 2023
We have to stop this.
Is general manager Brett Veach above criticism?
But to say this upcoming offseason will tell his story is ridiculous.
While Mahomes carries a lot of the weight, it’s evident he can’t do it alone. Nobody can.
Before last season — after trading away All-Pro wide receiver Tyreek Hill — Veach hit on George Karlaftis and Trent McDuffie in the first round.
Did he misjudge the wide receiver room before this season?
Nonetheless — based on his track record — I have every reason to believe he will revamp this position group as well.
Chiefs fans are lucky to have Veach.

Hey, Pete Sweeney!
Let’s set this up.
I totally agree with Red Raven, by the way.
