This team doesn't have it. Every time we had a good play or two last week, we immediately shot ourselves in the foot afterward. Penalties, missed field goals, and more penalties helped make the Chiefs their own worst enemy on Sunday. It was already hard enough for this team to have to play against the Titans. Playing against ourselves as well just made any outcome other than the 34-10 final an impossibility.
One could say the Titan's killed us on Sunday. I say that the Chiefs have put the gun to their own head. The Titans simply had to pull the trigger.
Any time a team is this ill-prepared and undisciplined, the fault lies squarely with the coaches responsible for fielding a competitive team. This is Herm's mess and we're probably going to have to hire a maid to clean it up.
So, when does this "rebuilding" process actually start? Next year? 2010? With veteran players getting frustrated and wanting out, it seems that Herm is still in the process of knocking walls out. He certainly hasn't put any new ones up.
