View Full Version : 7-9 or 8-8?

12-23-2000, 08:18 PM
At the beginning of the season we had put our predictions out... Some said 12-4 and SB... Others were less optimistic. And there was a large percentage, including me, that were thinking 8-8 or 7-9 based on the opponents.

Well, the opponents part didn't quite work out the way I thought. We didn't get our clocks cleaned by the "great" teams, but by the "not-so-great".

Is anyone else surprised at how we played this year? And does it match with your predictions on the Chiefs at the beginning of the season?<BR>

I predicted 8-8, and I'm not happy to be correct.

Yes, I'm disappointed too. Yet I'm not sure I can expect any more out of these coaches...<BR>

Hey, a lot of people were forecasting 3-13, 4-12 type of seasons. Maybe the Chiefs did excede expectations!

There is a fine line between winning and losing in the NFL.This team could have gone 4-12 or 12-4.The Chiefs are a team that is getting younger each year.A record of 8-8 is not so bad.How many years in a row were the Titans at .500.Schedules and seasons take their toll,just ask the Jaguars.Last year they were 14-2,now they are 7-9.Half the teams in this years playoffs were at .500 or below last year.

It's not that 8-8 is bad for some teams. But it is ALL we can expect from these coaches, ever. NO playoffs, no SB, no nothing.

So if you are happy with 8-8 you are going to be happy for many years to come...<BR>

I always hope for 10-6. You figure if you get at least 10 wins it should get you in the playoffs. It looks like we will go 7-9 and get a fairly decent draft pick. Let's hope a new coaching staff gets to assess that pick.

7-9 definitely...

They won one more than I expected. Damned if I know which one though.

I think we did move up to #12 in the draft, with an outside shot at 11, if Carolina beats Oakland.
