K.C. no longer Chief enemy

KANSAS CITY, Mo. This is a town full of losers, with great barbecue, bad baseball and the most hapless football team in America.

The Kansas City Chiefs are so bad, even Broncos coach Mike Shanahan feels sorry for them.

What's next? John Elway telling us he's not only sleeping with the enemy, but marrying a Raiders cheerleader?

The AFC West ain't what it used to be.

Hank Stram is dead, and the Chiefs, losers of 12 straight NFL games, aren't feeling so hot themselves.

Remember when Steve Atwater knocking the slobber out of Christian Okoye meant something? Where have you gone, Eddie Podolak? Heck, I even miss Marty Ball and the trail of Dick Vermeil's tears.

Remind me again what Shana-han, more famous for his Super Bowl rings than his sympathy, said about the Chiefs before heading to Kansas City, where his regular-season record is 4-11?

"They're embarrassed as a football team," Shanahan said. "I've been there myself, and you don't want to talk to anybody, you don't want to go out to eat, you just want to get back to the football field and find a way to win."

The real pity is how far the Chiefs have fallen. While there's a grand tradition of Raider Haters in Colorado, the more memorable, knock-down, drag-out games during the past 25 years have been against K.C.

Or have you forgotten that the season Denver marched to its first championship, the Chiefs actually won the division, on the strength of a 54-year field goal at the buzzer? But that only made the Revenge Tour's 14-10 playoff victory during the return trip to Missouri all the sweeter.

And the coldest I've ever been in my life was sitting among 11,377 fools in Kansas City on Dec. 18, 1983, asking them why any sane person would risk frostbite to watch a football game. The answer was in front of my predominately blue nose: The Chiefs were sending shivers down the back of a young Elway, thrashing him 48-17.

OK, true confession: I don't care how many $12 martinis you buy me in the club lounge of any new pigskin palace with a retractable dome, I'm sticking with Arrowhead Stadium as the best place ever invented for an NFL game. Sure, Lambeau Field in Green Bay has more history, but it can't match the tribal vibe of a community shouting in unison that rocks you in K.C.

And there's no sweeter smell in all of sports than the smoke that rises from the tailgaters grilling meat in the Arrowhead parking lot. Just don't bother going inside to watch the Chiefs these days. They stink.

"We're starting from ground zero," said Kansas City coach Herm Edwards, a pink slip waiting to happen.

On Chiefs Planet, an Internet forum for suffering fans, one of the most popular recent threads is titled: "Poll: Chances of Chiefs going 0-16?"

Of course, Denver has been called the luckiest 3-0 team in the NFL, and quarterback Jay Cutler insists he doesn't mind.

But why the Broncos are truly fortunate is they awake this morning with three dates remaining against the Chiefs and Oakland Raiders, as close to gimmes as exist in this league. So count those three games as victories, and all Shanahan must do to make good on his playoff guarantee is go 4-6 against New England, Cleveland and everybody else on this year's schedule.

Overnight, the AFC West turned into a very spotty neighborhood. It's kinda sad, if you ask me.

Old Darth Raider himself, Al Davis, is now about as threatening as an old geezer asleep on the couch. And remind me again who is

starting at quarterback for the Chiefs. Damon Huard? They'd be better off with Damon Wayans. At least he's supposed to be funny.
So who is a self-respecting, orange-bleeding Broncomaniac supposed to hate these days?

All I've got to say is: Thank the football gods for punky Chargers QB Philip Rivers.

Don't mistake a writer talking shit for the team that resides in the city of said writer (who hates the Broncos BTW) being overconfident. Our defense has nothing to be confident about.

Oh cmon, people need to have a sense of humor, our team is ****ing horrendous, what are you gonna do just be pissed off all the time?

Our team has become a joke, I'm not going to blow my top over it right now, I think all of this shit is good it further helps Carl and Herm get fired.

I agree with Mecca, this team is a joke. Even the players are embarrassed. Its nice to see him checking out Chiefsplanet though. This team needs to be made fun of on a weekly basis until they can start winning.

And then we proceeded to get beaten by a QB who had not started a football game since high school.

I'm betting you're right.

Losing Brodie Croyle in the first game, who won't be back until the 7th game at the earliest, who will then more than likely be lost again, will buy these inept ****ers another year.

Ahhhh... the good old days...

All kidding aside, we can see that Elway definitely had his struggles as a young QB in this league. That 1983 season he threw twice as many INTs as TDs and had a passer rating of 54.

The Chiefs have done it to themselves. We're three drafts away from being competitive.

Kiszla is just one of many reasons that newspapers are on their way to hell. But he's one of the big reasons.

The only reason I know him is that he wrote a similar article about the Minnesota Wild when they were playing the Avalanche in the playoffs several years ago. He wrote about how bad the Wild were, how they didn't deserve to be in the NHL much less the playoffs, etc. I emailed him before the series started and basically told him he was a dumbass for overlooking the Wild. Well, the Wild won the series.

That said, outside of the cheap shot "This is a town full of losers", he's pretty much right... I'm certainly embarrassed for the team, the tailgate is the best part of the Arrowhead experience these days, and the Broncos are lucky to be 3-0.

Who knows, maybe it'll backfire again. :)

Kizla tries so desperately to be a shock journalist.

Didn't this guy get bitched a few years ago for a column that got him in hot water?

I remember that series. The Wild didn't belong in the playoffs.
