View Full Version : Well, scratch another team off the list...

of teams that have gone as long or longer than the Chiefs without a playoff victory.

The Saints.

If the Raiders win next week, scratch off another.

That just leaves a handful of teams on "the list": The Bengals and Bears, and possibly the Browns (I'm not sure).

Pretty pathetic company.

It is pretty sad, but the only thing that is on our side is that the Not For Long jinx of the league hopefully falls our way for a change.

This is my line! Actually, the Browns dont count, IMO, because they are an expansion team.

Only in KC does a GM get rewarded for this type of "patheticness"

Seattle has won a playoff game since '93?

I believe the list is:


Soon it will be just the Hawks, Bears and Bungles.

But one thing to remember, the Hawks have two high first round draft picks in this draft. One mock draft I saw had them selecting Drew Brees, Santana Moss and Ennis Davis with their first three picks.

They will be a Superbowl contender within two years. Who knows what KC will be doing at that time?

As I reminded Ken, Chicago won a playoff game in '97.

Depressing but true.

01-01-2001, 05:51 PM
How about the Cardinals? Arizona/St. Louis?

01-01-2001, 05:52 PM
The Cards beat Dallas, in Dallas two years ago.


01-01-2001, 05:53 PM
Good one, Cannibal. I forgot.

01-01-2001, 05:53 PM
They went on to lose to Vikes in the second round of the playoffs that year.

Cool signature! Satan?

Nah, just one of the funny gifs I found while cruising the net.


01-01-2001, 05:57 PM
I just thought of an idea for a better one though.

01-01-2001, 05:58 PM
How about the 'Fargo' one with a donkey's head being inserted?

01-01-2001, 06:08 PM
You'll see what I'm thinking of soon.

It'll have something to do with Peterson.

Here it is. I'd like a better picture, but I can't find one.

That list is some pathetic company!


I like that picture. Very creative!

Concerning the Seahawks, I think they have 30 or more players with 2 or less years of experience + 2 top 10 draft choices + money under the cap to sign 3 top free agents(I think Bledsoe will be one of them) + coaching. It is going to be tough dealing with them down the road. Of course we wouldn't have to worry about them if they leave AFC West but I would hate that.

01-01-2001, 09:52 PM
R & G,


I hadn't thought of Bledsoe going to Seattle. If they do sign Bledsoe they will be in contention that much faster because they won't have to wait on the young QB to develop.

Holmgren definately has them headed in the right direction.

Hopefully the Chiefs can find a direction of their own soon.


01-02-2001, 01:14 AM
I hadn't thought of Bledsoe being that good. He is methodical, which may be exactly what Holmgren wants, and doesn't make many mistakes. The plays don't work, but that's not entirely his fault. You can thank his OC for that.

It's hard for me to believe that the Ravens are still in this thing. Their offense stinks, but their defense is overpowering.

It will be interesting to see if they survive next week...<BR>

I have said before that I see Grbac in Seattle. I believe Holmgren was his coach in Frisco. Elvis can force Peterson to cut him by demanding his 10 mil. Elvis has no ties to this team or city. He is booed at home after a 4000 yd season. He will never be able to live down the comparisons to Rich Gannon. Ask yourself, if you were Elvis would you rather play in Seattle or KC?

These are the only teams that have not made the Super Bowl since the last KC apperance after the 69 season. Only 6 teams in the NFL have gone as long as the Chiefs have w/out making the SB.

Seahawks(est. in 76)
Ravens(est. in 96)
Jaguars(est in 96)
Panthers(est in 96)
Buccanneers(est in 76)

It looks I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!

01-02-2001, 12:08 PM
If we could find a good replacement, I'd love to see Grbac end up in Seattle.

Grbac sucks when pressured extensively and Seattle's pass protection eats load. It would be two guaranteed victories each year. Plus, I'd love to Eric Hicks or Duane Clemons put the wood Grbac over and over again. :)

I am not a fan of Grbac. If this is the time to gut this team from top to bottom maybe it would be better to be out from under Grbacs contract. Maybe trade for a Ray Lucas, or maybe a blockbuster to move up and get a Vick if he declares. Add a Ray Lucas to Sly Morris, Alexander, Gonzo, Trich, Tait, and Riley and this offense is young and talented. Lucas would not cost a lot to trade for or in contract dollars and has shown signs of being a playmaker. Spend Elvis's and Shields cap allotment on a FA shut-down corner. Draft o-line and DT. Maz at MLB. Find a young and hungry staff, somewhere out there is another Gruden, or Andy Reid, or a Jim Haslett, or a Brian Billick. This team needs a change of attitude, the same change of attitude Carl Peterson brought in 1989. I would have loved a new GM but that didnt happen and won't for another 5 years. But Carl can take the freedom his owner has given him and really make a run at a SuperBowl. IMO, with a few changes this team can be a force.

Mr. Blond,

I agree with most everything you said.

Except that I have not seen enough of Lucas to know whether or not he should replace Girlbac if Girlbac decides to test the free agent waters.
