2009 Chiefs Opener

It’s rare for me to host a party. Most of the time, I’d rather go to a party rather than host one. However, today, it’ll be a different story. During the games I am not covering Chiefs games, I’ll watch a couple of those away games with only a couple close buddies of mine. Sometimes it may be at my house, their house or out in a sports bar. Thankfully, this season, the Chiefs opener is on the road, therefore, I decided to host a Chiefs season opener party today, which I got done setting up for last night. The only thing left to do in the morning is to set up the Chiefs flag outside, all my friends to get here and for the pizza to arrive. You can’t enjoy a football game without soda and pizza, unless your not a fan of pizza. As you all know, I love watching Chiefs football. I’ll always be watching the games either with my family or my friends. Not many of them are optimistic about the Chiefs. Many people in the local media were optimistic in my mind last year. Many of those analysts expected the Chiefs to pull off at least seven wins. I predicted three wins at most before the season kicked off. Obviously, I wasn’t very optimistic about Herm Edwards’ favorite quarterback, Brodie Croyle. However, when Tyler Thigpen took over the starting spot, my views on this football team became optimistic, considering the Chiefs were only a couple games behind San Diego by the time Thigpen started games for the Chiefs in the middle of the season. After all of his hard work, Thigpen was only victorious once last season. The victory came against the Oakland Raiders. Defeating the Oakland Raiders is no different than the Kansas Jayhawks beating the UMKC Kangaroos in basketball (or in any sport.) Many people ignore the statistics and focus on the win-loss record. But look at Kansas City Royals starting pitcher, Zack Greinke. He is currently in the top five in the American League in strukeouts (ranked second with 216), innings pitched (ranked third with 205.1), complete games (ranked second with 6) and in the ERA category (first with 2.19.) However, the Royals have a 4-6 record in his previous 10 games when Greinke started on the mound. Greinke currently holds a 13-8 record this year and thankfully, the judges are still viewing him as a serious Cy Young award winner, which he clearly deserves. Thigpen doesn’t put up large numbers like Greinke (but it’s different when Greinke has complete control of what he does while Thigpen has to rely on others for his personal success in the stat books.) However, Thigpen is very similar to Greinke. They both put up good numbers to give their team an opportunity to win games. But in the end, they get no support from their teammates. Greinke does well just about every time he pitches, but the Royals struggle at the plate and score one run while Greinke does his best to keep his ERA low. In Thigpen’s case, he did a good job of not turning the ball over and put the ball where only his receivers could get it. He received the same treatment as Greinke. Thigpen’s receivers dropped first down passes on third downs. They dropped open passes in the endzone. The Chiefs were not able to compete in games because of the supporting cast and the coaching staff. General Manager, Scott Pioli, made changes in both areas and made sure the right people would replace the ones who he shipped out. So here is why I’m optimistic this year. Out of the 14 losses, nine of those games were decided within 10 points or less. Seven of those nine games were decided by only one possession. In a majority of those games, the Chiefs started off with a strong and walked into halftime with a lead, just to blow it to the opposing teams in the final quarter of the game due to lack of talent and lack of aggressiveness from the coaches. This time, the Chiefs have a smarter coaching staff and more talented players. The Chiefs do have a lot of easy teams on this upcoming schedule. Because of last years results and the strong offseason the Chiefs had, is why I’m very optimistic. I am fully aware that former Chiefs tight end, Tony Gonzalez, was a big factor in helping the Chiefs compete and is no longer here. Although he is dearly missed by all Chiefs fans, I still feel this team will be able to move on without him. With the way the AFC West is shaped, the Chiefs have an unlocked door. The Raiders and Broncos continue to fall back while San Diego makes no offseason moves while Kansas City was one of the most active teams this offseason. If San Diego cannot play good football, this division can go to Kansas City. I know asking for a team to choke is to much, but we’ve all seen the surprises of teams choking and giving away their division. If the Chiefs do win the division, Arrowhead Stadium will be hosting a playoff game. For now, lets just focus on improving from the six combined wins the past two years. Lets see how well this Chiefs team does under the new regime.

LJ’s Twitter Brawl

The Chiefs lost by 30 points today, however, there are far worse things to worry about in the locker room.

Just take a look at Larry Johnson’s three tweets on twitter after the game. Johnson’s twitter account is ToonIcon. (Don’t ask me what it means, because I don’t know.)

http://twitter.com/toonIcon

“my father got more creditentials than most of these pro coaches…..google my father!!!!!!!”

“My father played for the coach from “rememeber the titans”. Our coach played golf. My father played for redskins briefley. Our coach. Nuthn”

“My father 3 or 4 state champs in Maryland. 3 or 4 1st rd picks Penn State. . Not including son!!!”

That is just the beginning. LJ is now having war with fans.

(For those unfamiliar with twitter, anytime you see the @ symbol and a screen name, that means the user is responding to that person.)

I don’t know what to say anymore about Larry Johnson. He is allowing his ego to get to him. He wants to bad mouth his coach. I’m not happy with Todd Haley and what he’s done, however, LJ has no room to take shots at Haley. First off, he is your coach. Second off, LJ is one of the worst running backs in the NFL right now who has yet to score a touchdown and have a 100 yard rushing game. He is taking shots at fans, calling one a fag. He put down another person bad mouthing their mother for giving birth to that person. And he claimed himself more superior because of his pay checks.

I hope Johnson has made a lot of money, because its time to fine this jerk.

I had high hopes for LJ, and I guaranteed that he would win the comeback player of the year award. I wonder where he ranks in that category right now.
