The game wasn’t pretty, so we shouldn’t have expected the responses to be. When checking Twitter after the Kansas City Chiefs’ miserable performance all around in their 24 point loss to the Tennessee Titans, it was clear that there wasn’t a single aspect of the game to be positive about. Whether looking at coaching decisions or player execution, defensive performances or offensive mistakes, costly penalties or further turnovers, everyone in Chiefs Kingdom was rightly irate.
Even those closest to the team were completely frustrated on Sunday afternoon watching the roster they know and love playing such uninspired football. From a former team reporter to former players, the responses, well, they speak for themselves and we could not agree more.
For those tasked with covering the team, the feeling was the same. It’s miserable to have to watch a football team mail it in like they did on Sunday. It looked as if the Chiefs were content with just tanking this season for the sake of a complete rebuild, and it’s hard to believe that the expectations coming in were for a third consecutive trip to the Super Bowl.
Given the Twitter reactions of those we’ve already seen, it shouldn’t surprise anyone to see the fans piling it on, too. And you can’t feel bad for the Chiefs in any way whatsoever. The coaches and players absolutely deserve to feel very, very uncomfortable answering questions for a team that cannot seem to find a single answer.
