The Kansas City Chiefs were the worst team in the league in 2012 and a new NFL Sound FX video may hold the keys to just when wrong in KC.
When you are the laughingstock of the NFL, it can be hard to catch a break. I am sure the crews at Sound FX caught the Chiefs saying some really cool, inspiring things to one another in 2012, but if they did, those clips are on the cutting room floor.
Instead, the Chiefs are heroically portrayed as a group of knuckleheads talking about pee and farts.
For the life of me, I can’t figure out why they did so poorly last season.
It starts with Eric Berry jumping up and down in a defensive huddle, telling his teammates how badly he has to pee.
But later, well, here is the money quote.
“How you gonna fart on the heater, bro” Berry exclaims to one of his teammates, while sitting next to a grinning Justin Houston.
“That’s naaaasty,” Berry continues. “You…cookin farts over there, man.”
But it wasn’t all just fart jokes for the 2012 KC Chiefs. There was also a fair amount of confusion.
“I don’t know where to line up, coz,’” Berry laments later.
And what Chiefs highlight reel would be complete without Berry being afraid of a horse.
“Aw, hell no,” a concerned Berry declares on the sideline. “There go that horse. That horse. I wait till they got horse passed,” Berry tells Houston as he retreats to the bench. “I don’t met with horses, bro. Straight up. Might come over here and throw a tantrum.”
Now, to be fair, the beginning of the video is sort of the clowning around phase of the story NFL Sound FX is trying to tell. Later, the players get serious and are shown talking strategy and also making big plays to score touchdowns and help their teams win.
And that is exactly where the Kansas City Chiefs mysteriously vanish from the video.
There’s always next year.
