How exciting for us this year will be. It already is really. Only we know the pain of being Chiefs fans year after long year. But that' s all about to change.
No, it doesn't mean we're going to win the division or a playoff game or even break .500 this year. But have you REALLY checked out our schedule this year???? You should, it's our best friend.
I know many of you think this schedule is going to damn us this year, but it's not. It's the best thing we have going for us yet.
How so? Easy!! First, remember that all the other AFC West teams play the same hard asses that we do. Oh except, that San Diego has to play Tennessee and we don't lol!! Did I say that out loud?
So for every Superbowl calibre team we play, so does every other AFC West team. Why is that so crucial? Well check out our schedule one more time and reallllllllyyyy look at it closely. Hmm? What's the big deal here? I'll tell you what it is.
It's a picture perfect ride. A fabulous scream roller loop to end our season. Yah!! Think about it. Look at how our schedule is laid out compared to the other AFC WEst teams.
We play all the really tough teams right out the gate. Immediately. Sounds damaging doesn't it? It's not, in fact it's just the opposite. How so? Well after our bi week we have a game or two that will challenge us, but look at our last half of the season. We don't play any playoff calibre teams (ok we have to wait and see on SD). The only team we wrap up with that's even close to being a decent team are the Chargers, but they have Norv and we have Haley. We win!
No other AFC West team except for us will be able to get hot and get on a winning roll. Their sched's are evenly spread out with a winning team here and then a losing team here etc. They will pull of one or two wins here and there but then they face elite teams that they WILL lose to, preventing any kind of run.
However, our last half of the season is against a bunch of mediocre teams. We could conceivably come off a bi week with rested players and some time to regroup and re think things. Then we could get hot and get on a roll and literally win 5 or 6 in a row to end the season. HOW COOL!! We are the ONLY AFC West team that ends their season with a bunch of punk teams to play.
It's the perfect ending to a great story a great ride. We all get beat up in the beginning of our seasons in the AFC West. But while we gain confidence and momentum going into the end of season playoff push, our othe AFC West teams will be playing Tennessee and Pittsburgh. Ha!!
So fellow fans, enjoy the ride, do not feed the animals please and keep your hands and arms inside the ride at all times......HERE WE GOOOOOOOOO!!
