25. Kansas City

Regular season: 66-78, .458
Playoff wins/record: 0-2
Super Bowls won/appeared: 0
Playoff seasons: 2
Winning seasons: 3
Losing seasons: 5


With the exception of those hazy, crazy, high-scoring days of 2003, when Kansas City produced and surrendered points in almost equal measure, the entire decade was something of a downer for the Chiefs. But they did give us one of the more entertaining playoff games in history, that no-punt, point-a-minute 38-31 Colts win at Arrowhead in 2003.

For posterity:

8. Denver

Regular season: 85-59, .590
Playoff wins/record: 1-4
Super Bowls won/appeared: 0
Playoff seasons: 4
Winning seasons: 6
Losing seasons: 1
Why on earth did the Broncos fire coach Mike Shanahan? The guy won the AFC's fourth-most regular-season games this decade, posted six winning seasons, made it to the playoffs four times, and had just one losing record. Oh, yeah, that's why. Because Denver lost four of five of those playoff games, beating only defending champion New England in 2005's divisional round. The Broncos have won 59 percent of the time in the regular season this decade, but that only protected Shanahan for so long given his lone playoff win since earning back-to-back rings in 1997-98.

12. San Diego

Regular season: 72-72, .500
Playoff wins/record: 3-4
Super Bowls won/appeared: 0
Playoff seasons: 4
Winning seasons: 4
Losing seasons: 3
Knock him if you want, but Chargers coach Norv Turner is 3-2 in the playoffs since replacing Marty Schottenheimer, who was 0-2 and twice lost their postseason openers at home. The Chargers rightfully can be called underachievers this decade, but after going just 18-46 in the first four seasons, they're 54-26 with four playoff trips and four winning records in the past five years.

24. Oakland

Regular season: 57-87, .396
Playoff wins/record: 4-3
Super Bowls won/appeared: 0 of 1
Playoff seasons: 3
Winning seasons: 3
Losing seasons: 6
What are the sad-sack Raiders and their sub-.400 winning percentage doing above four other clubs at .406 or better? None of those teams went to a Super Bowl earlier this decade. None of those teams were seeded second, third and first respectively in the AFC playoffs of 2000-02. So while I know the memory of the Raiders going 33-15 to start this decade is distant and ever-fading, it did happen. And let's be honest: Oakland got jobbed in the Snow Bowl. You know it, and I know it. It was a fumble.

And I was there in person to witness it

We will be the best team of the decade after Pioli invents a time machine and takes Clark, Haley and Cassel back to 2001. After helping Lamar "retire," Clark Prime will advise his younger self to stay in Dallas when he's not flying around the country in the Chiefs' private jet. Just think of the advantages this will give the team!

Clark Prime will then beam into Carl's office just as he is making the phone call to Dick Vermeil, and rip the phone cord out of the wall. "CARL...YOU'RE FIRED!" Vermeil is never hired and years of disaster are averted. Carl is buried alive in the new Arrowhead foundation (renovations begin years in advance), and Pioli assumes his identity after facial reconstruction surgery. Cassel's younger self is barely out of high school, so he's not a worry. Just to be safe Cassel Prime grows a swarthy mustache and changes his name to "Matt Raffle."

The Chiefs win a Super Bowl in 2003 with Roaf protecting Cassel Prime and opening holes for Priest Holmes. When LJ arrives that year, Priest becomes the backup and the Chiefs go on to win four more Super Bowls. Pioli also signs Jared Allen to a long-term contract.

Chiefs also have the worst website in the NFL. So if we improve the website then our team will get better as a result.

I know the Raiders went to the Super Bowl, but since then they set an NFL record for most consecutive 12 loss seasons. How the hell can they be in front of us?

I'm ok with the Vermeil hiring, its the Herm hiring that was the worst ever.

Don't forget the ugliest cheerleaders.

Yes but they can probably kick ass on the blocking sleds. Good thing they're not tested for steroids.

even with the Vermeil awesome offense years? But I guess the worst defense for the entire decade cancels that out.
