The Chiefs vs Local Big XII

The Chiefs have not done well. Many may disagree with my views, but I expected much more from the Chiefs, simply because they are a professional football team. But I should have known better. When a professional football team loses because they cannot play four full quarters of football (Ravens), allow a weak team to dominate in the final drive after handling them all game long (Raiders) and allowing backups and rookies to abuse them, you must look at that franchise and ask if they are doing anything right from top to bottom. This team has really disappointed me. There is no reason why this team should not be 2-1, or at least one win. The Raiders allowed only 10 points, while the Chiefs allowed the backups and rookie Eagle-team to score over 30. I’m not sure how many Chiefs fans are like me, but I’m not a huge college football fan. Don’t get me wrong, I love the college football games. The system does annoy me a bit, however, watching Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri (as well as the other Big XII teams) are much more entertaining than the Chiefs. I hear a lot of people who are Chiefs fans, but they rarely talk about the Chiefs as much since the start of the 2007 season. Everyone is all about college football these days and its obvious why. I’m trying to convert myself into a better college football fan. I watch these games, but don’t follow the teams closely. Instead, as a die hard Chiefs (and football fan,) my weekends are disappointing because of my Chiefs. With KU, K-State and MU either improving or winning titles in football and basketball, they’ve over shadowed the Chiefs. Just look at the KU/MU border showdown attendance for the past two years. In both years, both teams have done well. In 2007, the winner of that matchup would become number one. That was not the case in 2008, but it was still a very entertaining game. The hype was not as big. This year, the matchup may be more meaningful than last years. The 2007 and 2008 KU/MU border showdown defeated the Chiefs for having more attendance in a game at Arrowhead all year long (excluding the Big XII championship; not familiar with those numbers.) But either way, the college football events at Arrowhead Stadium are much more intriguing than the professional team that plays there. That tells you where this franchise is currently.

First off, it’s Christmas week. Merry Christmas to all of you! Thanks for all the support. I’ve attended some Christmas parties hosted by some family friends who I have not met. Lately, when meeting new people, they seem to know who I am just because they’ve seen me on the newspaper, or a magazine or on TV and have given me great comments. I’m only 18 years old, but this just shows that a teenager (no matter what country he came from) can do whatever he pleases to do if he chases his dreams. I just want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart!

There is a reason as to why this game is blacked out. Yes, the weather, the economy and a battle between two teams fighting for pride and draft picks. Kansas City sports fans are passionate. If the Chiefs were better than this, fans would not care about the economy or the weather. They’ll be more than happy to put on a few layers of clothing and go see their team win a game. Unfortunately, the Chiefs have understood why their fans have lost faith.

I understand that this is supposedly a “learning process.” But I don’t see what the team is learning from this. It’s not supposed to be like this.

If the Chiefs get blown out by divisional opponents and barely lose to bad teams, you’d expect that they could win this game. It’s very possible, but I’ll be honest, I don’t see it happening.

Do not doubt Josh Cribbs. He is in the top five among all NFL players who can play multiple positions. He can throw, run and catch a football. He’s also one of the most explosive special team returners out there. He could very well put together over 200 total net yards. The Browns may even use Cribbs as a decoy to help other players can open in the endzone. That is how valuable of an asset Cribbs can be.

Dwayne Bowe is coming back and several feel he can help the Chiefs. He has been a game changer that has scored three of his four touchdowns on either a potentially game-winning or tying drive.

I will be doing another blog tomorrow, but I promise you it will be something positive. Most of you probably know what I’ll be talking about. Browns win 27-17.
