If we were to beat Denver this Sunday then we are up 1 game on them. Looking at the donkey's schedule, they play at Chiefs, Titans and dolts in Denver then Texans and raiders on the road. I don't see a lot of potential for a loss there other than possibly at Arrowhead.
So say we beat them this week and are up one game....unless we were to win out from there, they would probably wind up with a tied record with us in which case they win the division due to the tie-breaker. So as much as I HATE saying it, we are probably playing for the 5th seed. I think we would be better off resting players that are dinged up this week and trying to get as healthy as possible for the playoffs and hopefully a 3rd shot at the denver foreheads.
I ask all my fellow Chiefs fans.....
What would be better......Winning the West and losing in the first playoff game because we were dinged up or going in as a Wildcard and having an excellent chance of winning the first Wildcard round because most or all our players were at or near 100%?
I could see us learning how to win the big games and taking that experience to the postseason with us.
But I do agree, for the most part. This team has looked like, in most of our games like a team about to get 'exposed'.
This Chiefs team is not as good as we hoped it was a few weeks ago and it's not as bad as many are starting to think it is. This team remains the best we have put on the field in quite a while.
