Greetings Chiefs fans,

I'm having fun watching my Colts win, don't get me wrong (and by the way, congrats on the wins over Pitt and SD! Those are good teams!), but after every win, all I can think is, so what? Are they going to forget that they're allowed to run the ball in the playoffs for the fourth year in a row?

I know it's a horrible thing to say, and I'm going to root root root all year, especially these next two against Denver and NE we've got coming up, but it's just heartbreaking year after year watching your team come up just short. I thought the Colts were the best team in the NFL in 2003 and 2005 for sure. 2004? I know NE was injury-decimated, but they just seemed to have destiny on their side - don't know how much shame there is in that.

Anyway, didn't the Chiefs have a few frustrating years where their playoff runs ended sooner than they hoped, i.e. 1995 (sorry!), 1997, 2003 (sorry!), and a couple others (can't remember)?

Do you guys ever get the feeling I get watching your team in the regular season?

Not trying to stir up bad memories, just kind of hoping to get some moral support! :pint:

Well frustrating, Yes, but that is the name of the beast, football that is, that carrot, that is just out of reach, giving undying Hope :pint: (sorry couldn't resist that grin)
that on the next grab, it is yours. To a Football Fan, there is either WE WON!, or wait till the next game, or season.
Sorry that is all the encouragement I can give, because that is sadly the best description of what I go through.
Now that the sermon is over, I do what I do best, and that is Hollar, GO CHIEF'S :hammer: Whoever we are playing at the time, like below!

GO CHIEF'S :hammer: The Seahawks!!

8-) :lol: :pint:

first and foremost, welcome to the board. One correction here. We didn't beat Pitt. OL'E is more the term on that one.

Yes, I know exactly how you feel. Way too many trips to the playoffs with nothing to show for it. Someday that will change. Hopefully, in my lifetime.

As usual, it is the Colts title to lose again this year. it will be interesting to see if you guys can defeat the hump we haven't been able to get over.

Try the 90's. :lol:

Welcome to the Crowd, and I don't think there is a Chiefs fan anywhere that can't sympathize with how you feel.

I have, absolutly, no idea what you people are talking about. When, and if, my team makes the playoffs, The only thing that I can see is the prize. Doubts only set into my mind when the game is on, and things aren't going the way I had envisioned them.
I become blind. Blind I tell you, BLIND!!!!!! I don't see the past, I see the future. The Super Bowl!!!! The ring!!!!
My N.F.L. CHAMPIONS tee shirt.

I have always had a piss-poor memory.(sometimes a bad thing, sometimes a good thing.) When my team fails to look good enough for the playoffs, however, I tend to scream and shout about the problems. I throw my hands up in the air and curse the team that I love. This is the life of a Cubs fan.(secondary to my Chiefs.)

The problem with the Colts, and the reason they won't go to a SB, is Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy.

Dungy (and Tom Moore) gives Manning far too much freedom in his playcalling.

Manning is responsible for forgetting that they have a ground game, and that they need to establish some balance in order to negate some of the defensive pressure.

The problem there is that Manning wilts in the face of a pass rush like the ones he's faced against NE and Pittsburg in the playoffs.

Every QB struggles against pressure, but the really great ones, Unitas, Montana, Elway, etc, makes plays when they need to on a consistent basis.

Manning doesn't
