Come on people, let's face it, the Chiefs won a division that was terrible this year. Unless a miracle happens, the Ravens or whoever KC plays is going to spank
the Chiefs just like the 8-8 Raiders did today.

Please...this game meant absolutely nothing to the Chiefs, while it was the Raiders super bowl.

Come next week, the stadium will be electric and the Chiefs are going to be much more competitive.

I felt like the Raiders front 7 was on steroids. We have not had this kind of problem ALL YEAR except the LAST TIME we played the Raiders...hmmmm

anyone who thinks this game meant nothing and that we can just turn it all around without batting an eyelash are delusional. Whoever we're facing next week now has 60 minutes of footage of everything they need in order to pull off a perfect victory over the chiefs.

Heres one thing last bizarre twist of logic that im holding onto out of some desperate outreach for hope - the chiefs planned to lose this way this bad and made no adjustments so that we could lure our playoff team next week to commit to doing everything the raiders did, and then we suddenly have an answer for all of it. Judging by the expressions on Haley's face, im going to say thats not a likely scenario.

Weis - GTFO i hate your selfish fat face. Ive not been in love with your play calls all year, and this is one pathetic way to end your NFL career.

Chiefs either proved that they have a winning record only because theyve had such a weak schedule, or the Raiders have just proved that you can go 6-0 in the division and still not make the playoffs. maybe its a good mix of both. Either way i know theres a large segment of the fanbase population who are laughing at us right now.

That's alright. I have plans on the 16th of January, this team will not make it past the first round the way they played today.

Did we even have an offensive line in the game today?

It's very much possible that the Chiefs held back and didn't show everything today. They are going to have to play a similar team next week in the playoffs. It was clear throughout the game that it simply meant more to the Raiders than it did to the Chiefs. I'm not saying that the Chiefs weren't trying to win, but the Raiders were clearly the more passionate team today.

And this ^^. Just because they lost today doesn't mean they are going to lose next week. I really believe they're going to win next week. They will be focused and ready to play next week.

As I said earlier today, it is still a 4 game trip to a championship. So we play the Ravens instead of the Jets. So? The one thing that has me concerned is that even if we held back, why was Cassell having to run for his life again? That looked like a 2009 game today. They had better find a way to get the O line shored up before the blitz-happy Ravens come to town. I am thinking if we trade or draft anyone that isn't a 300lb+ offensive lineman this coming off-season, Pioli may not be the genius we think he is. Well, ON TO THE PLAYOFFS! Go Chiefs!!!:punk::punk::punk::punk::punk::punk::punk ::punk::punk::punk:

This IS a playoff team. I'm sorry but we WON our divison. We EARNED our spot in the playoffs. If we are one and done that's not a huge letdown for me. Just getting in is HUGE for this team compared to what we had done the last few seasons.

I am a realist. Yes we won the division because of weak schedule and the chargers choking huge. I just believe we are a few year away from a legitimate run. We need to rebuild the oline and get some wr. We need a pass rush that's consistent. I'm not saying that we don't have players that can't do it. They just need time to mature and grow.
This season will be a learning experience worth a great deal to our young team. The way we played today and 3 other games this year shows we aren't there yet. We tried to win today or why would have haley kept in the starters esp. Matt all day...we couldn't do anything.

The whole divison had the same weak schedule for the most part. WE EARNED the divison title becuse we played 2 games better then anyone eles against the NFC west. WE EARNED it.

actually no, we are not a playoff caliber team, nor are we the best team in the AFC west, but we have in fact won the division and are in the playoffs and who knows, if we win that would put the revanas as only the fourth best team against the AFC west, wouldn't it....so maybe it is the revans who should be afraid of being embarrased.

KC has nothing, nothing at all, to be ashamed of. We won as many games THIS season as we have the past three- and to celebrate that improvement, we went ahead and won the division and got in the playoffs.

Part of our "weak" schedule couldn't be helped- we played the NFC West, and swept them. And if you have a weak schedule, shouldn't you win most of those games then? Well, we did.

I can't wait for next week. And I hope there is another week after that for our team. We kick arse.

You all are depressing! Learn how to lose. We finish 10-6. Let the playoff game be played before you start your whining...and pull your damn panties out of your *** crack!

The Chiefs have a VERY DANGEROUS offense! It is the type of offense that can sleep forever...but if it wakes up, it takes over a game!

My point is...there is a reason they play the game. There is only maybe 2 teams that I think would beat us 9 out of 10 times this year. One is the Patriots. 2 might be the Falcons...or Eagles.

But, we can beat ANY OTHER TEAM...ESPECIALLY at home.

We can also lose, but we can also win.

I guess the main thing I am trying to get across to the whiners...is...STFU!


Hey hey! Didn't you see my post just a couple before yours? I thought I was suitably Rah-rah!

Actually, I'd love to play the Falcons in the super bowl, and get everyone a ring for KC, so that Tony G can really live out the mistake he made leaving.

This is team is on the rise regardless of what happens today or next week. This season is the first of many winning seasons we will have this decade.

We have the critical positions locked up under contract, a good owner, GM, coach. The future is bright in KC and the rebuilding project is ahead of schedule.

This team is a year ahead of schedule and there is no shame in that. Did we overachieve, probably. Should we be excited about that? I sure as hell am. We'll play the game next week and see where the chips fall.
I'll take a 10-6 season going to the playoffs. Much better than any of us ever expected heading into this season.

I'm a whiner, I'm a whiner because if there is ONE TEAM, JUST ONE TEAM THE CHIEFS HAVE TO BEAT EACH YEAR, that team is the Raiders.

Good grief, I mean really, we get beat by those jokers TWICE!!! The Raiders are dirty SOB's and we should beat them everytime, simply because we are better than they are.

Geez, I HATE when we lose to the stupid Raiders, I would rather be 2 and 16 and have both of those wins be the Raiders.

Ok well maybe that is a stretch, but you get the point.

Too bad you can't change your name. We dont need fans like you around. We were 4-12 last season and now we are 10-6 going into the playoffs. What more do you want?

And obviously this is your first time watching the Chiefs if you think the 08 team was better. Perhaps you didnt notice that we lead the league in rushing and Cassel (with the exception of yesterday) hardly ever gets sacked. But yeah...bad O line.

You know, I am reading post from people. this morning, who are even questioning the validity of the Chiefs season because of a loss to a division foe who always plays the Chiefs tight and isnt a bad football team themselves. People, this morning, are questioning the Chiefs stregnth of schedule. Ok, lets take a look at thier schedule. in game one, the Chiefs were two touchdown underdogs to San Diego, Chiefs win! Game two, Cleveland at home, no surprise. Game 3, San Fran at home. Just remember, they were pre season favorites to win the NFC West. Game 4, Dwayne Bowe catches that ball in the end zone, they probably would have beaten Indianapolis. Game 5, again, Houston was predicted to do great things this year. We could go on and on. My point being is this. The Chiefs are division winners for the first time since 2003. They have a chance, a good chance to win thier first playoff game since 1993. And remember, that team wasnt predicted to go as far as they did. If you are serious Chiefs fans, then you will understand that ANYONE is likely to be beat on Any GIVEN SUNDAY. And when it comes to the Oakland series, anything can happen. These guys will buckle down and practice hard this week. I SAY BRING ON THE RAVENS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :chiefs3:

Sorry, I thought it was quite clear that I said we played bad on Sunday. That is why I put brackets with the quote "with the exception of Sunday"

As far as my "goggles" ...I have listened to that sh!t from people like you for years. Feel free to say these guys arent a playoff team, but let me ask you a question ...and answer it honestly.

If I told you that the Steelers had the 8th best QB rating (93.0), the best rushing attack in the NFL averaging around 160 yards a game, the AFC leader in Sacks and their WR was leading the league in TDs...would they be a playoff calibur team?

I feel that the Chiefs are kind of a paper tiger. They had an incredibly weak schedule this season.

They only beat one team with more wins than losses, the Chargers at 9-7.


Oh, and there were several other abysmal losses besides yesterday's game.

What is all the negativity I keep reading???

Yes....We got whupped by the faders! And I hate it. At the local tavern watching the game I did my best to dull the pain of that painful display and the ribbing I was getting from the faders fan who is always there! :toast2::toast2::toast2::toast2::toast2:

But all this talk that we are somehow not a "legitimate" playoff team is nonsense!

Yes, we had a pretty easy schedule. But y'know, in the last 3 years we have had some reasonably easy schedules and what were our records those 3 years? 4-12; 2-14; 4-12.

Plenty of other teams have had easy schedules over the years and wound up with awful records.

We're 10-6 and won the AFC West! :chiefs:

Two things can be guaranteed in the playoffs......

1) On any given Sunday.....

2) Win or go home.

Do I expect we will win the Superbowl? Not enough to bet any major money on it. But we are in the Playoffs and have a home game for the first round so we at least have a chance which is more than you can say for 20 other teams! :chiefs:

So lets quit talking about how weak our schedule was, how bad the Faders beat us and concentrate on cheering on the AFC West Champions to their first home playoff victory in almost 20 years!!!

:chiefs::chiefs::chiefs: GO CHIEFS!!!

01-03-2011, 02:28 PM
it does seem when we lose we get slammed, but it still counts the same in the standings as a 1pt loss. this team has overachieved and i am thrilled to death to be atop the AFC west at 10-6. i am still hurting from this loss which is harder to swallow than if we get blown out next week. that said, the ravens did not look very impressive sunday either and can be beaten by an over achieving team like the CHIEFS. lots of emotions running high right now but lets refocus by sunday on the only game that really counts now.

Why in the world with 7:55 left in the game, did the offense yesterday not give Jamaal Charles one more carry to break Jim Brown's 50 year record for yards per carry? At one point in the game yesterday, he took the lead and had the record. But then, his last carry was for -1. His chance at the record fell short by .02 yards a carry. I think that would have been a major desire of the coaching staff to at least give him all the opportunities to make that happen. What a work horse he has been for this team this year. Thank you for your hard work this year #25. We look forward to seeing you in the future where I know you will break that record! Go Chiefs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!:chiefs3:

I think the Chiefs are a solid young team and the Ravens specifically have a weak secondary Cassel can take advantage of. However alot of talking heads on NFL Network, ESPN and even this site here: AFC Preview: Baltimore Ravens @ Kansas City Chiefs at Pro Football Rant (http://profootballrant.com/?p=45) dont seem to give us much of a chance.

They are definitely a playoff team as they are playing next week but they have to play to their strengths to move to the next round and add a few more pieces in the off-season to be a legitimate contender.
