I’m getting tired of hearing all these fans throwing a pity party for themselves over the Oakland game. I understand it sucked. I’m pissed about the loss too. I hate Oakland as much, if not more than, the average Chiefs fan. I hand out my fair share of angry feedback and non-enthused conversation at work on the day after a loss.

But we are in the playoffs! This is a good time for us Chiefs fans. We’ve suffered through the Herm Years, the LJ and Huard and Thigpen failures. For the first time in -- how long? -- we’ve got an RB and receiver going to the Pro Bowl, and our team is leading in stats other than negative ones.

And to those saying this team is a fraud: WTF? We won the division! Are you saying we shouldn’t be granted a seat at the playoff table? Should they have given it to San Diego, who didn’t win as many games as we did “but are a better team, just had a few bad games” or maybe give it to Oakland who were 6-0 in the division but 2-8 everywhere else?
We are the most improved team in the NFL, and we deserve to be in these playoffs. Calling this team a fraud is just trying to make yourself look smart with hindsight vision, and trying to capitalize off an emotional loss to get attention.
It’s like calling the Dow Jones a bad investment after it loses 200 in one day. But it eventually bounces back, baby. Mail your focking gold in that envelope to that company on TV and use it to buy a Raiders jersey if you’re so damn disappointed in this “fraud.”

Speaking of that…”fraud?” Did Haley ever say “SuperBowl here we come!” did you see him on TV last week Putting AFCW Champion hats on guys and slapping asses? No. That would be overpromising, overconfident behavior. Fraud-like behavior. He didn’t. And they aren’t. They know they need to keep working and they deserve our support, not our selfish complaining.

But if you want to grumble and gripe and act like that chick’s never gonna give you a BJ cuz she’s too stuck up or too ugly, then go the fock home and beat off in your bathroom. Because this week is for winners. Division winners. Home-field teams. Tough teams. And I am banking on the Chiefs being that team on Sunday.

I’m not even from Kansas City. I’ve never lived there and only been there three times. But this weekend when I’m in the stands I’ll be giving it my all to make some motherfocking noise when Ravens O is on the field and spiritually back my team. We’ve come this far, I’m not going to anticipate failure just because I’m afraid of being disappointed.

Go Chiefs!

I agree that we deserve to be in the playoffs, we did what was required to qualify and I'm not making any apologies for us being there. With that said, I can't wrap my mind around the notion of dismissing the Oakland loss. My god, we didn't just lose, we freaking laid down for them and it was a glaring reminder of how poorly this team is capable of playing. It's definitely not the way you want to be heading into the postseason.

how they respond is the key...I'd rather have them humble and hungry with something to prove than being overconfident from going undefeated at home...the looming loss of 7-0 is over...they've bounced back from the blowouts this year...I feel that they can do it again.

That's why I dismiss it going forward. We know the talent level, strengths, weaknesses, etc... that wasn't the issue yesterday. The problem was effort. Yeah, I was pissed about it... I wasted my day there, and hell, it's another reason for me not to buy season tickets next year, which I've been leaning towards for a while now.

They aren't going to have a problem with effort next week.


On a related note, I'm tired of hearing about yesterday... OMG, what if the Chiefs play like they did against the Raiders? OMG, the Ravens barely beat the Bengals! WTF, people, can we analyze this week's game based on more than two meaningless week 17 games?

I thought of that as I typed it, and I know they don't match up well against the Raiders (but I still think effort was the biggest problem yesterday)... and that's just another reason it doesn't have anything to do with next week. The Raiders had the 2nd most sacks in the NFL, and the Ravens had the 3rd lowest total.

Sunday's loss, to me, was a team thinking about the post-season. It was, for all intents and purposes, a meaningless game. Players dont give a flying fuck who comes to their house to play.

Trust me, I'm taking more than the Oakland loss into consideration here. And there isn't any damn excuse for lack of effort yesterday, the team still had plenty to play for.

Championship caliber teams don't see any game as "meaningless". The Patriots played in a game that was even more meaningless than ours and they didn't mail it in, they pounded the holy fuck out of Miami.

we aren't the patriots. we're a young team that's going play above and below itself at times. we've got plenty of veteran leadership and coaching to keep us pointed in the right direction....this is when guys like Vrabel, Jones and Lilja are invaluable.

I don't think we have to worry about them mailing it in this week.

The last part wasn't directed at you... it's just a general 'WTF?' for all the posts linking yesterday's games with the playoff game.

I agree, it was pathetic, and even worse being there surrounded by Raiders fans. Motivation was a big topic before the game, and I wasn't 100% sure if things like wild card seeding, going 8-0 at home, playing in front of 65,000 cold fans, and beating the f***ing Raiders would really motivate the team.... assholes.

Man, I'm just happy with the progress. Things could have gone horribly wrong this year.
Imagine this:
Say we hired a young, enthusiastic coach who made a butt-ton of unpopular personnel moves, (losing an all pro QB and WR for one, or trading a pro-bowl running back for a shitty backup QB). After he made those moves, this team started out on fire, going 6-0. Then a chain of events started in motion...
Imagine losing 19 of the next 24 games, getting busted cheating, (and still losing) then ownership firing the young coach after being beat by inferior teams and division rivals, repeatedly. Now your favorite team has a young, unproven QB, no coach and they're looking at some old retired, unqualified former player to run the front office because of his big name and local celebrity status. Not to mention your team is doing this when heading into a possible strike year.

Wow, wouldn't that be a huge embarrassment?

I agree with both of you here I just wished Haley would reflect that more.Granted,I only have press conferences etc. to base that on and have no idea what he might be like behind closed doors with the team but today's PC was a perfect example,"uh well we didn't execute and did some things that got us beat."

How about,"we not only looked bad we stunk it up and playing like this in the tournament is going to get our asses handed to us."

Or maybe we just can't handle Oakland's defensive line.

Or maybe we got royaly screwed on the game tying drive by a phantom holding call, no run-off of 10 secs on the clock and a non-review of the bobbled all the way to ground catch that set up the field goal to tie? And then we end up losing by 3 in OT. Yeah, they really whipped us bad in Oakland. :shake:

But it's true. That's the sad part. It's hard to beat a team when then rules are enforced. When a team starts catching breaks on a game tying drive it's not so easy to win.

That was the root cause of both losses.

When we can't run the ball it throws the rest of the team out of whack.

Why are you so dense, pete?

I didn't say the Raiders kicked the entire team's ass.

But their defensive line sure kicked our offensive line's ass, and that's why the game was in OT to begin with.

And yesterday, lo and behold, our OL got dominated again, and we lost again.

Do you even have a point to this debate? What are you trying to prove? Are you defending the offensive line?
