The good news is that the Chiefs are still capable of winning 11 or 12 games and owning the No. 3 or 4 seed in the final AFC playoff picture. The bad news is that their biggest problems can’t be resolved in season and are likely to be amplified in the playoffs. A late-season run may prove the most effective way to give Kansas City the confidence it needs come January.
The next two games are likely to reveal what we can expect from the Chiefs down the stretch. Losing a game to a team like the Giants might constitute the gut check necessary for a fourth quarter surge. Unfortunately, it could also be a springboard to another 2014 season where the team unraveled over the second half of its schedule and failed to qualify for the playoffs. We’ll soon find out which is which.
Is it time for the Kingdom to panic? Are the Chiefs still capable of a strong finish and a respectable postseason run? Should the team consider a switch at quarterback? Use the comment section below to weigh in on the subject. As always, we appreciate your readership and support.
Until next time, Addicts!
