41. Kansas City Chiefs, Last Championship 1969, Curse of the Schottenheimers.

When you hire a coach from another cursed franchise, you end up with a 3-9 playoff record since the merger.

No, but they're close I'd say...

Royals feeling kind of blue
1 Consecutive seasons with a losing record through 2004
19 Years since winning world championship in 1985
24 Average number of games behind in last 10 years
2 100-loss seasons in last 10 years
3 Managers since 1994
2 General managers since 1994
.290 Opponents' batting average vs. K.C. pitchers in 2004 (worst in AL)
.358 Royals' won-lost percentage in 2004 (worst in team history)

Ever see on Master and Commander where the young officer is cursing the ship so he grabs a cannonball and jumps into the ocean.

Peterson needs a proverbial cannonball.
