Part two of the Chiefs‘ 2008 schedule, as promised…
Week 10: @ San Diego
We snuck up on them before Norv Turner and his band of cronies discovered L.T. It won’t happen this year.
Prediction: Loss (3-6)
Week 11: NEW ORLEANS
When the Saints come marching in they’re going to march up and down the field considering our corners. No way we take this one. I just don’t see it.
Prediction: Loss (3-7)
Week 12: BUFFALO
We catch a break here and catch a fellow rebuilding team. The Sea of Red is the difference in a fugly game. Edwards…Croyle…be there! Yuck.
Prediction: Win (4-7)
Week 13: @ Oakland
And the streak ends here at one win. I think the Raiders could very well be quite a bit better than us by this point, especially if they draft Darren McFadden. We’ll see.
Prediction: Loss (4-8)
Week 14: @ Denver
I actually think the Raiders could be better than the Broncos in ’08, but that doesn’t change anything here. We always lose in Denver. Always. We drop another one here.
Prediction: Loss (4-9)
Week 15: SAN DIEGO
We very well could have a rookie quarterback playing at this point. Either because it’s Matt Ryan and Croyle has been yanked, or because Croyle has gone all M*A*S*H on us and some other rook (or Tyler Thigpen) is getting a shot. The Bolts electrocute us on their way to another playoff run.
Prediction: Loss (4-10)
Week 16: MIAMI
When things look like they can’t get any worse, it’s always nice to get an early Christmas present–the Dolphins on the schedule! The Chiefs take out their frustration on The Tuna and his Fins. Finally, another “W.”
Prediction: Win (5-10)
Week 17: CINCINNATI
Ocho Cinco and T.J. Houshmandzadeh are going to destroy our
Cover 2 “Cover Who?” defense. I fully expect the Bengals to put up a ton of points on a Chiefs team with nothing to play for, exacting revenge for the ’07 game in the process.
Prediction: Loss (5-11)
There you have it.
I’m predicting (pre-draft) that the Chiefs go 5-11 in ’08
That’s one game better than this year. The good news is that if we screw up and don’t pick Matty Ice this year, then we’ll be in the running for Tim Tebow in ’09. We’ll get that franchise quarterback I so desperately covet and most Chiefs fans, not to mention King Carl, act like is a plague.
