Before the season started most people were just hoping the Chiefs would finish .500 or better. Realistically, 10-6 and just making the playoffs would have been considered a huge improvement over last year and a success. But with every victory fan expectations are rising. Now we are even seeing some mainstream sports media articles saying that this team is set up perfectly to beat the Broncos.
I would have to say that if we finish the season as the 1 or 2 seed then, yes, not winning a playoff game would be a disappointment. A big part of it depends on our star players staying healthy. We've manage to scrape by with several key injuries, but if we lose a major piece it will be difficult to win down the stretch. I don't think anyone should be expecting to make the Super Bowl at this point, although as Chiefs fans, we are all certainly hoping they do.
As far as I am concerned this season has already been a huge success regardless of what happens from here forward. If we go 10-6 and lose our first playoff game, I'm okay with that. The Chiefs are just getting started and will be better next year. I figured it would take 3 years to make the Super Bowl and as long as we see continued improvement, I'm happy.
