Coffee with the Chiefs – Where do we go?


Good morning, Addicts. The Kansas City Chiefs are a pathetic disaster right now, but don’t despair. I am 27 years old, and it took me almost all my life to realize that the Chiefs are a football team. They are not life and death. We still have happiness outside of a patch of grass 120 yards long by 53.3 yards wide, with two groups of 53 strangers wearing the same clothes.

Football is a great thing, but in times like this, it can become all-consuming. As a long-distance friend, I implore you to take a deep breath, hope for the best, and accept whatever happens from here on out.

Here’s the news you need to know:

Chiefs loss puts them at 1-3 for the 2015 seasonTerez Paylor of the Kansas City Star

"The defense — and its inability to contain quarterback Andy Dalton or make timely red-zone stops against the run — should shoulder some of the blame for the loss. It should also be noted that the Chiefs surrendered 30-plus points for the third straight game for the first time since Reid arrived in Kansas City before the 2013 season."

Alex Smith and the Chiefs can’t handle the pressureAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The problem is showing up in different ways for the Chiefs each game. Two weeks ago against Denver, the Broncos hounded the Chiefs into five turnovers. Last week against Green Bay, it was seven sacks and a three-and-out on four of the first five possessions."
