As a Kansas City Chiefs fan I am accustomed to having bad seasons. This team has sent me on more roller coasters rides than a church youth group at Worlds of Fun.
So naturally when the team I cheer for every year after year, through the thick and thin, ups and downs, and everything under the sun, starts winning, people tend to point out the schedule as favorable for the team. Living in western Nebraska near enemy territory I run into everything from Bronoco flags and window decals to this..
So naturally when I get the chance to rub it into Denver fans that my team is undefeated they go to the same old, boring, useless argument that is repeated over and over again…”They haven’t played anybody”
To all Bronco fans… I understand you are upset that the Chiefs, not the Broncos, have been the topic of conversation in the NFL. I also understand that you are upset that you have one loss. But let me tell you this. For all the fans out there who say the Chiefs have not played anyone, lets look at who you have played.
Baltimore – I was jumping up and down when the Ravens shattered the hopes and dreams in the playoffs last year. You played the Ravens at your house instead of at the Ravens, where it should have been played, thanks MLB. They were not the same team you faced in the playoffs last year, and were without key starters, so naturally you won.
New York – Manning bowl was in full effect, and congrats Peyton you beat your little brother again who has been struggling all year. Congrats again.
Oakland – Really? Yes, at that point they were doing better than everyone thought, but now look at them. Becoming the same Raiders we are used to every year.
Philly – Chip Kelly was supposed to be a savior, but the Eagles struggled as well, and their defense cant stop anyone. Sure now they are playing good with Nick Foles under center, but back then they were bad.
Dallas – In what was a show down of who can throw more touchdowns you scraped by against Dallas. Congrats once more, by the way did we tell you we held them to 16 points, and you let them get 48…weird.
Jacksonville – ….. I got nothing
Indy – Now that was a great game, you faced a great team, and guess what? You lost.
Washington – That was a close one as well. It looked like you were struggling but you came back, good job, good teams find ways to win. Remember that.
San Diego – Another close one that you squeaked out a “W” in. They were able to hold you to under 30 points, the first team all year. Again the Chiefs are holding teams to 12, not a misprint.
So there ya go Bronco fans, there are the teams you faced. Guess what, until you played Indy you had not really played anyone either.
So I understand why you think the Chiefs have not played anyone, I get it, I do. But come this Sunday both teams, yours and mine are going to play somebody. While I would love nothing more than to rub a victory into every single face of a Bronco fan, I know with confidence that it will be a good game regardless of who wins. So enjoy saying that they have not played anyone, please bring signs that say that. Because come Sunday night in Denver the Chiefs are going to do one thing…
Make you see Red.
