    Default Reflections on three losses.......


    1 Not allowed!
    I don't mind admitting that these 3 losses have hit me like a 10,000 pound sh!t-hammer. It took me 3 days to recover from that first loss.

    The loss against San Diego was almost as bad.

    And of course this second loss to the donkeys in Arrowhead hurts like hell...especially since we had the bastids by the balls and let them get away.

    But being mindful of coach's advice in another thread to not get too high on the wins, I'm not going to get too low on the losses. So I've looked at these three losses and while there are certainly reasons for deep concern, I also see lots of reasons to be "almost" pleased with these last 3 games.

    Let's face facts....

    When we were 9-0 there was not a sane Chiefs fan anywhere that thought we were going to win the Superbowl in an undefeated season.

    Many of us were worried that the pundits were right and our Chiefs were simply a "paper tiger".

    A common theme in threads through the first 9 games was "Is our Offense EVER going to get their sh!t together?"

    Well boys, our offense has gotten their sh!t together in the last 3 weeks. Our Defense has looked weak, but then, for 3 games they have been playing quarterbacks that are simply pretty damned good. Neither forehead nor rivers are anything to laugh at.

    So where are we???????

    Our Offense has shown they can light up the scoreboard just like the "big boys" do.

    Our Defense has shown they aren't quite as good as we thought (and the injuries have not helped), but if they can get their mojo back they can keep us in the fight against any team in the NFL today. BAR NONE!

    We are competitive with any team in the NFL so long as either our Defense or Offense is playing their "A-game".

    If both our Offense AND our Defense can bring their "A-game" on the same day then we will win....NO MATTER WHO WE ARE PLAYING.

    Our Chiefs have 3 tough tasks ahead of them......

    1) They have to get out there and get the required wins to make the playoffs. Should be easy, but it won't be. We're dinged up and we are facing our first serious adversity this season.

    2) We need to finish the season STRONG. Beating the colts and the dolts in the last 2 weeks would be HUGE!!!!

    3) Assuming we make the playoffs we have to BURY that 1 and out problem we have had in the playoffs! If we make the playoffs, we need to win that first round game in a blowout!

    If we can do those 3 things we will have an honest shot at the Super Bowl.

    Call me a "homer"....I guess I am.....but this is a very good Chiefs team. All the pieces are there. They just have to get to the playoffs and then put all those pieces together at the same time.

    GO CHIEFS!!!!!

    Perhaps so, but it doesn't take away from the fact that they did it to them in their park in a snowstorm.

    The media is bragging about Manning's day against the Titans in the cold temperatures, but he didn't have to deal with a slippery field or a wet football.

    the media forgot what happened in NE. its not the temp but a combo of temp plus wind that froze Manning

    Yeah manning made a comment about his having a good day in the cold. Something about how people that think he can't play in the cold should put it where the sun don't shine. If we get another crack at him this season we are going to stuff his forehead where his sun don't shine.

    If he does do it, what's your next excuse "well he did it in the regular season at home" and then he does it your next excuse is "well he didn't do it in the AFC Championship game" and then he does......you see where i'm going

    The media painting us as bad guys AGAIN. Wasn't last season bad enough to recover from? We're 10-3 a year later and the talking head a$$ clowns are feeling SORRY for Daniel Snyder & Co.? We did their fans and team a bigger favor (better draft position) by beating the snot out of them. Our first string guys were getting pulled by the fourth quarter anyway, if we'd kept them in and kept pounding away the score could've been much, much worse. But Reid, being the guy that he is, didn't.

    Okay, if we're the BAD guys...Let's be effective bad guys. Go into Oakland with an attitude, take care of business just like we did in DC. Gunsights on the Raiders.

    RIGHT YOU ARE!!!!!

    1) Lock up our playoff spot with a strong win against the raiders.

    2) Close the season out STRONG! NO letdowns in the next 3 weeks.

    3) Win our first round playoff game.

    4) STOMP the living sh!t out of the donkeys if they don't eliminate themselves first.

    5) Tell the NFC to send us the best they have.

    6) PARTY TIME!!!!!!!!
