Kansas City Chiefs: Dumpster Fire Déjà Vu
If you want a glass half full outlook after this abysmal game it is that the Chiefs are 2-2 and completely in the running for the playoffs from a win/loss perspective. You can also cling to the fact that the Chiefs under this same coach and quarterback overcame an even worse record to make the playoffs last season.
I wrote the first passage above claiming the Chiefs were insane to keep going like they were and expecting things to get better. Turns out that at least for last season the Chiefs were right and I was wrong.
The problem is not that there isn’t any hope of the Chiefs making the playoffs this season, the problem is that the Chiefs seem to have the exact same flaws as they did last season. Yes, they eventually made the playoffs, but those flaws proved too great to overcome in their playoff loss to the Patriots.
