Kansas City Chiefs one and done!
I for one applaud the wonderous season given to us by the Chiefs. They were able to turn a season that everyone (including my blockhead self) believed to be just another sub par season into a Division winning season of magic. They have thrilled us this year with highs and depressed us with lows.
Yet still they achieved what virtually no one expected, and at times almost looked invincible. They started the preseason looking fairly vanilla, with only very faint glimpses of the coming thrills.
Then they broke out on Monday Night Football with an astounding win against last years division winner the San Diego Chargers. Following this win, they went on to stay on top of the division the rest of the year, and doing the impossible by winning the division.
Did the “best” team win out in the division? No real way to tell. The Chargers certainly could have played better and once again taken the championship, but they did not do this.
The Oakland Faders (Raiders) played better this year, yet as they usually do in the thick of things lost important games to come out on the bottom of the heap.
And the Denver Donkies (Broncos) played their way out of the division real early, and basically were never a real contender. However it can be pointed out that they not only beat the Chiefs,but beat them down to a quivering mass of hopelessness in at least one game.
None of this really matters, the Chiefs ARE the AFC West Champions this year!
Yeah it might also be said the Chiefs had a powder puff schedule going against washouts, never beens, losers, underachievers or teams that beat themselves.
Yet this does not matter; the Chiefs ARE the AFC Champions this year!
We the fan base of the Chiefs can only revel in the warmth of the entire season and look forward to next year. I myself, nor anyone else can actually say what will happen next season. Their schedule will be more difficult due to their playing into the play-offs, but who knows maybe they will get that much better.
Can Todd Haley and company sans Charlie Weiss (Leaving for the Floridas) recreate this years “magic” and take on all comers victoriously? Again it is hard to say, but again it does not matter, the Chiefs ARE the AFC West Champions this year!
The fan base at least can feel at this time that there is some light at the end of this multi year losing atmosphere, and that they may just be watching the beginning of a dynasty of winning? It really does not matter cause;
The Chiefs ARE the AFC West Champions this year!
