Pot says kettle will make the catch next week for KC Chiefs

In one sense, we're glad to see the Kansas City Chiefs supporting and encouraging each other after suffering a tough loss. In the wake of the team's abysmal offensive showing in a primetime game for the chance to really put some distance between most teams and the No. 1 seed in the conference, perhaps such camaraderie was needed. It just sounds funny coming from the source.

Shortly after the Chiefs walked back to the locker room as the losing team in a home game against the visiting Philadelphia Eagles, the emotions were clearly on display from the team's offensive players. Tight end Travis Kelce really didn't want to talk to reporters in the locker room. Even wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling was ready to chuck his helmet:

Valdes-Scantling had every right to be upset at that point. He'd cost the Chiefs a win. But he wasn't the only one at all. Justin Watson had multiple drops. Rashee Rice had one. Travis Kelce had missed opportunities. They happened again and again (and again).

Following the game, it's normal to hear teammates try to pick one another up and use press quotes as an opportunity to rally the proverbial troops. But in one particular instance, we heard this one:

Watson might be right. Perhaps MVS would make that same catch 99 times out of 100 and maybe it will even happen next week. But for now, it just sounded odd to hear a guy who cost the Chiefs a win encourage another guy who cost the Chiefs a win.

Guess the good news is that despite everyone in the room being at fault, they also feel good about how much better they'll do next time (as if we haven't been asking for that since Week 1).
