Chief and Donco opinions welcomed:

That game looked a lot like Gun's last game in Atlanta. Except Denver had still had a real shot at the playoffs.

Instead the players quit...on themselves, on the Geenyus, on the Denver fans...why?

What has Rat face done to them? Was it the signing of Plummber that turned them into quitters?

Was Shannon Sharpe the only person in the entire organization with any pride at all (i.e. a non-quitter)?

Does their quitting mean that they were quitters all along or did they just decide to quit after KC kicked their ass up and down the field for a half?

****ing quitters.

Imho, their quitting fate was sealed when they hired the ultimate quitter: Frank Plummber.

( ROFL sweet victory)

They were so usy thinking about how many ways that Shanahan was a genius that they couldn't concentrate on the game because they would have lost count and would have had to start over again.

Rod Smith was the only one Sunday who looked like he was playing like he had any pride toward the end.

Pretty simple as I see it: Shanahan is a dick.

Well, like I told Taco the other day, if there is any one player that can lose a game single handedly against one of the worst defenses in the league for you its Jake The Mistake Plummer.

Seeing as how Shanahan has so much confidence in a guy that has based his entire career on underachieving that could be it.

by the way, I'm not JUST kicking them while they're down...this seems to be the concensus at the mange too....they quit on their season

Grbac syndrome...The players know that no matter what they do, Plumawful is going to choke it away.

that's my take, too....if your QB is a loser it infects your whole team

Like I was saying before the season, I liked the Portis/Bailey trade. It enhanced our ability to beat the Donkos.

Portis had absolutely stomped a mudhole in us. I remember at least one long touchdown run by him last year at Arrowhead. But, without him, the Donks only get in the end zone once (not counting the trash time TD to get to 17 points)

And they got Champ Bailey out of the deal, who was kind enough to escort Eddie Kennison to the end zone on his two TD's.

Looks like a good trade for us...

yeah, no Portis busting 50 yard TD runs against the worst D in the league....they put the game on Plummber's arm....whoa, bad choice

Here's hoping they extend his contract for another 5 years or so in the offseason :thumb:

I really think they expected to come in here and spank us like they did the last two times they played us (both in their house). Gunther knows how to beat Shanahan, and had a better idea of what his players were capable of, unlike the first game. They just plain didn't get up for this game like they needed and for the first time this year, we put a team away when given a chance.

The Denver offense has looked bad in all but maybe 2 games this year, and while thier D is decent, it is Raven like enough to make up for their Offense.

Blah, Blah, Da-de F' ing Blah:
quit...
... quitters?
... quitting
... quit after
****ing quitters.
...quitting fate ...ultimate quitter:


Care to give the Chiefs any credit? Denver is 1-14 at Arrowhead in December.

Willing to go out on a line and say the Donks decline to spend 6 mil on an option for '05?

As a Chiefs fan and a ASU alum who watched Jake single-handedly take the team to the Rose Bowl I say "Pay Plummer; Learn to live with Jake being Jake"

the Rat told them if they didn't lose they would lose their jobs...he wants a higher round of draft picks...and those higher round of draft picks will in no way threaten the players' jobs if they just lose out

Initially, I thought you asked When instead of Why?

To answer the When question, it was shortly after Elway retired......

I actually said to myself at some point in the 3rd, I think, when LJ broke through the line for a 4-5 yard gain, that they had quit....they offered no resistance on what should have been a stuffed play....
