Chiefs Reach All-New Low In Loss To Raiders 15-0


The Kansas City Chiefs reached an all-new low today, falling to the Oakland Raiders 15-0.

It was one of the more pathetic offensive showings in franchise history for the Chiefs. With WR Dwayne Bowe placed on injured reserve, the Raiders appeared to have no fear of the KC passing game.

And with good reason.

Brady Quinn struggled all day. When he wan’t making errant passes, his receivers weren’t getting open. The first half was so bad offensively for KC that they entered the half with only 24 yards to total offense.

Despite the offensive woes, the Chiefs defense put forth a spirited effort. They managed to keep the Raiders from ever reaching the end zone. Still, Oakland managed five field goals.

KC’s offense improved a bit in the second half. They managed to pile up some yards but whenever they got close to scoring, they didn’t.

The Chiefs were shutout in perhaps their most embarrassing performance of the season.

And that is really saying something.

The silver lining here is that the Chiefs are still in the running for the #1 pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. The Jacksonville Jaguars also lost so the Chiefs will need to make sure they continue to suck over their last two games to ensure the title of “Worst Team In The NFL” stays in Kansas City.

Don’t worry, Addicts. Only two more games and then we’re likely to get much more excitement in the offseason than we had during the actual season.

Pioli, Crennel and Daboll are almost certainly goners. With a new GM, coach and the #1 pick in the draft, Chiefs Nation will at least have some hope heading into 2013.

    Start your draft scouting folks. =(

    • sidibeke

      Reach for a QB at 1 or go for best available that fits a need and go QB 2 or try to trade back into later half of 1? Or try to get Cousins?

      • Jim Harper

        You must take a QB #1. There is no other choice. Anyone we draft will be better than what we have. Draft Geno #1 and build your team around him. Make it his team and get serious. I don’t see the Redskins giving up Cousins when he is such a solid back-up for RG3. I want someone who comes into the league as a Chief and leaves the same way.

        • Philip Skahan

          with the pathetic offensive line we have, you better hope they draft Geno, ’cause he’ll need to run for his life!!! If we don’t upgrade the O Line, it won’t make a bit of difference who the QB is…no QB is worth the top pick…..Take Teo…he is an impact player.

          • sidibeke

            A good QB can make a line better. Denver’s O line was average…

          • KCMikeG

            So true! A good QB can make everything better – the OL, the WR, the coaches and even the defense. Plus we will have Hudson back.

  • Rich Womack

    I think its sad that Breaston was inactive. Crennel hasnt a freakin clue how to coach. As for next year lets offer Washington a second and all three of our miserable qbs for Cousins.

    • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

      Breaston had 7 catches in 9 games. McCluster had 6 (I think) catches today. Breaston wouldn’t have helped.

      • Rich Womack

        He has had been underused all year. He would have been a upgrafe compared to Bust Baldwin. Prolly wouldnt have mattered but the fact he was inactive shows Crennel is a fool.

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          I disagree he was under used. He played in nine games and he didn’t produce. He didn’t get open. Other receivers on this team, like McCluster, have performed way better and have produced (ell as much as you can produce in this offense). If Breaston didn’t make a dent with Bowe on the field drawing coverage he isn’t likely to suddenly start producing now.

          • Rich Womack

            True but he still would have been a better choice than wylie. Besides KC qbs dont throw to open recievers..lol

          • drakemcvey

            bowe+breaston= breaston unproductive. okay so you think that if you take bowe out of that equation it somehow makes breaston less productive? if he was losing catches to bowe and bowe doesnt play then how does he not have more catches? youre arguement doesnt factor in the loss of bowe at all

          • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

            I disagree. Having a #1 receiver like Bowe drawing the coverage makes things easier on the #2 and #3 guys. When Bowe is gone, they get all the attention fro the D.

        • http://www.arrowheadaddict.com Patrick Allen

          But I agree, Baldwin is also awful. Breaston/Baldwin six of one, half dozen of the other for me.

    • Danny W

      Either way Don Steve looked terrible at left tackle, he leaked like a sieve. The left guard whoever it was Asamouga or Allen whoever stunk the place up. He couldn’t throw to anyone probably because they only ran Charles nine times the entire game. Our offensive line got handled by Oakland’s front once again.

  • drakemcvey

    breaston inactive hahahahahha oh man this would all go down so much easier if they just came out and said they were doing it on purpose to get the number one pick like the colts did last year. instad they are trying their hardest and being secretive all while being completely horrible and embarrassing. this is amazing!!!

    • sidibeke

      It’s an argument. If they were doing that, JC would sit. And if Luck were out there, I would do it, too, but he’s not. So sad. Instead of Luck or RGIII we have Smith or Barkley. Chiefs Will should be changed to Chiefs Curse.

  • Rich Womack

    Who else believes KC should draft 2 QBS? I think we cant afford to miss and drafting two gives us a better chance.

    • KCMikeG

      #1 Geno Smith, #2 Austin WR and #3 Landry Jones.

      • sidibeke

        If Bowe walks. If not, I’d like some OL or D help at #2.

        • Chief Hokie

          We need secondary help

      • http://twitter.com/jaldridge711 Jonathan Aldridge

        #1 Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

        #2 Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State

        #3 Stedman Bailey, WR, West Virginia

        #4 E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida State

        #5 Wes Horton, DE, Southern California

        #6 Garth Gerhart, C, Arizona State

        #7 Ben Cotton, TE, Nebraska

        Head Coaches- Chip Kelly, Jon Gruden, Andy Reid

        GMs- Bill Polian, Charley Casserly, Michael Lombardi

        • KCMikeG

          I really believe Geno is going to be everything we could want at QB. Why do you like Bailey over Austin at WR? Manuel played weak defenses and wilted under pressure vs Gators – only good defense he played. Chip Kelly would be a good choice but I like an experienced HC like Billick. For GM I like Marc Ross.

          • http://twitter.com/jaldridge711 Jonathan Aldridge

            its not that i dont like bailey over austin, its just that we probably wont be able to get him

    • Outback Chief

      Geno Smith in 1st and Jordan Lynch in the 2nd or Collin Klein in the 3rd but yes we cannot fail we need to take a page from Seattle’s book and play the best QB on the field

    • Danny W

      Could you imagine getting Smith and then Tyler Wislon too?

  • P. Bazan

    The Chiefs were shutout in perhaps their*

  • sidibeke

    Dark, dark days. And Breaston inactive. My biggest pet peeve with HC’s, when they make decisions based on ego instead of merit. Foolish.

  • http://www.facebook.com/genemyuk Gene Yuknis

    how low can you go?

  • Danny W

    The line got dominated by Oakland’s once again. Don Steve is terrible, and whoever was playing left guard got beat countless times, whether it was Asamoua, or Allen they got handled. Ryan Lilja at center doesn’t know when to snap the ball apparently. When your team doesn’t get a first down until the back end of the third quarter I think you have to start at the line of scrimmage. We looked like a bad division two college team on offense yesterday.

    Pulling off what you accurately described as “their most embarrassing game of the season” is impressive. I’m really missing Matt Cassel, lol.
