It's because we've seen this team be competitive enough for over a decade. Just not competitive enough to make the playoffs most years and competitive enough to not get a high draft pick. It's the same old cycle that keeps selling tickets but gets diddly squat. I'm sick of it.

Its basically 18 years of Carls 5 year plan that most of the fans are disatisfied with. Its just all coming to a head. Its not just this year. Its the same old thing year after year....

just a little reminder:

last playoff win was Jan of 1994
2 playoff appearances in 10 seasons
3 years since the last playoff appearance

Why does Peterson still have a job here???

I'm not saying every player dogged it but the team as a whole is soft and weak. This team gave up why shouldn't the fans.

Did you see the "tackles" that were made on the Clevland back up QB that cost us the game late?
Did you see our season on the line and down two scores late in the game and we punt instead of going for it on forth down?
You see Law and Wesley give up after the reciever caught the ball and start pointing fingers at each other?

On the other hand did you see the way they played on Thanksgiving? Did you see how the crowd responded? For the whole game total it was the loudest I've ever heard.

I don't blame the fans for leaving. There is a lot of dissatisfaction in Chiefs nation with the mediocre play we see every year. They are just making a statement to the team. The players don't care why should we care? Give them something to cheer and they will cheer their ass's off.

I don't understand why Chiefs that quit on themselves, the fans, and thier teammates year in and year out.


FWIW, there's a big difference in giving up on the Chiefs and giving up on playoff hopes for the '06 season.

Though, with the way the Chiefs have dissapointed season in and season out for a decade, I can't really blame people who would choose to spend their money and efforts on a team that seriously wants to win and is willing to do what they need to to pull it off. I don't think we will see a truly competitive team as long as Carl is running the show. He depends too much on hiring buddies instead of hiring people that will get the job done.

The thing that gets me is that it was this loss that tipped the scale rather than the Browns loss.

If you are going to throw up your hands and quit, I would have thought it would have happened after losing to a shitty Browns team.

Losing to a team that's beginning to look like one of the top 2 in the AFC doesn't really phase me that much. The Ravens are clearly a better team than us. A win would have been an upset.

For me, it's the notion of playing poorly at home, Mr. jspchief. And the fact that we just exhibited another fabulous example of abysmal game planning.

I just listened to the Hermiliar's press conference in which he talked about how difficult it is to play defense if you don't force the enemy offense into "known downs". However, he doesn't seem to mind when our offense is always playing the "known downs" on every damnedable snap. That's what has caused my stool to loosen.

Shit I've been a fan since watching Lenhy "The Cool" throwing spirals to Otis so I'm not going anywhere but jeeeezzz I'm paying $3,000 a year for 3 season tickets and parking. A lot of people are reconsidering their investment in those tickets

Wait until the Jaguars game. 10,000 empty seats. And those will not be filled next year. I'm predicting 8,000 season ticket holders don't renew next year and no one steps foward to purchase them.

You could see it coming. The Chiefs are coming off a 10-6 season, and they had to have their most aggressive marketing that I've seen in a long time to try and sell tickets. If last season was bad enough to scare people off, this season sure as hell isn't going to gain fans.

The only saving grace for the Chiefs is that people had to invest years into getting their good seats and are reluctant to let it go. My Uncle has 6 tickets that he'll never get rid of because it's taken him decades to get to where he is, but every year he finds it harder and harder to fill the 4 seats him and his wife don't use. It's like a stock that you can't make yourself sell because you are afraid one day it will shoot through the roof again.

We wouldn't want our defense to feel bad about themselves by having the offense look better than them.

The total and intentional dumbing down of this offense is just infuriating at times.

What a pity.It is. Like I said in a previous post...the fans have given everything to this team for a long time now. But there comes a point when you just don't have any more to give.

You witness it on a smaller scale in individual games. The crowd starts out screaming their lungs out the entire time we are on defense. Then there are a few of those third and longs that are so loud your head is pounding, and the opponent completes a 16 yard pass to a wide open guy. After a few quarters of this, the fans no longer get up for first and 2nd down. Then after a few more 3rd down failures, the fans start feeling like there's no point. Screaming can't cover or tackle.

What's happening now is just a larger version of that. The early/mid 90s were those first two quarters of the game, when every Chiefs fans believed the sky was the limit. By the late 90s, we knew to temper our enthusiasm, waiting for those special seasons. Now after nearly a decade of that wide open 3rd and long reception, we have a hard time believing it will be different.

I'll join the list of those who won't invest another dime in the support for our team. I'll sit, watch, and cheer every single game but there will be no more road trips for me until a better product is put on the field. My sister called at 6:00 yesterday offering me "free" tickets (thanks to her friends that got so $hitfaced the night before they couldn't make it). Gave me a chance to take my 11 year old to a game this year.
But, it won't happen again. That was sickening.

My vent:
Ty and Greg W....you both f'd up. Don't make asses out of yourself with a high school girl screaming match ON THE FIELD.

Defense:
Quit flapping your arms asking for crowd noise on every play.
Give us something to cheer about. Spend a little more energy trying to kill the QB and a little less trying to F'n FLY. You look stupid.

O Line...not good.
Coaching...beyond belief. Every aspect sucked
Management....I won't even bother.

Even with the "free" tickets, I still managed to spend about $100 before the day was done (and that's without drinking a single overpriced beer in the stadium...but that's another vent)


It's just the same ol $hit year after year.

Yeah we have youth coming up we will be fine. I wish all the Herm bashers to shut up.the guy hasnt even been here a year everyone was counting us done when Trent went down and he kept us in it and everybody seems to have forgotten that. I love Herm Edwards and how he runs a team, get rid of Gunn and get a new DC.

I agree with most of this. I think Herm has done an admirable job considering all the injuries. When Green went down everyone at the bar I was watching the game at said the season was over. We were all wrong.

I do think we need a better OC. Did we ever pass on first down? I don't remember it. 90% of the time it was run-run-pass. Occasionally we would pass on second down, but not often. That is way too predictable. After we had run on first every time and they started to stack the box we should have tried a play action pass. I'm not a football expert in the least, but even I can see that the play calling was terrible.

I agree totally Mr. splatbass we were way to predictable. Yeah run run pass punt gets old watching and its pretty easy to stop. Boy Trent had a couple of terrible picks.

You should have known the season was over after the Cleveland game. That was just pathetic. THat was also the point where Herm lost me. Call me crazy but I just can't back a coach that wants to put skirts on our players.


Yep!

I'll never quit, and I'll be cheering the Chiefs on if they're 0-16 next year, but I've gotta admit that I'm probably more down on this team than I've been since I started watching them in 1989. I'd like to think that there will be improvement in the next couple years, but the reality is that this team is OLD, and there needs to be some kind of serious rebuilding effort.

I know it's still mathematically possible to make the playoffs, and if we managed to win the last three games, I think we probably get in. However, I refuse to be blindly optimistic any more, and instead will try and face the reality that it will be another January without the Chiefs. And this is coming from a guy that was still holding out hope that the Chiefs would make the playoffs in '01 when we started 1-6.

I guess I'll just try and enjoy what's left of the season, because it'll be a long 9 months before the '07 season.
