Earlier this year during the Chiefs’ magical 9-0 run Pete Prisco, who is the senior NFL columnist for CBS Sports, tweeted out that the team was the “worst 9-0 team” he’d ever seen. This sent a shockwave around Chiefs Kingdom, which resulted in a deluge of tweets, blogs and whatever medium Addicts could find to decry Prisco’s opinion and call him every name in the book. Now that the heightened expectations of an undefeated team are gone, and the Chiefs have dropped three straight to division opponents, I thought it would be a great time to check in with Mr. Prisco and get his take on where the Chiefs stand now.
Despite what you may think about the man’s opinions regarding football in general — or the Chiefs in particular — Pete Prisco is a level headed guy who was gracious enough to give me 15 minutes of his time on the phone to talk about my favorite subject, the Kansas City Chiefs.
Take a listen to the interview and find out what Pete thinks about the Chiefs now. He said they were the worst 9-0 team he’d ever seen. Are they the worst 9-3 team? Where did Pete have this team going at the beginning of the season? Did he predict they would make the playoffs? Can they win a playoff game? Will they even make the playoffs?
Pete and I talked about all this and more during our chat. Listen to the interview and let us know what you think. Then, make sure you tune into AA Radio this Thursday, as the panel of Addicts and I will be discussing this interview and giving our reactions to Prisco’s comments, his take on the Chiefs as well as whether or not his Superbowl predictions will come to pass.
Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
I’d like to thank Mr. Prisco for his time and willingness to talk to a Chiefs fan!
