Me neither.

My fantasy team is dead last, too.

This is probably the worst year of watching football that I can remember in my young lifetime.

2008 came close, but this season feels worse than bad. It feels squandered.

Dark times, my friend.

I wasn't a football enthusiast in the 80's, but since around 2006, I imagine that this is pretty much what those fans were feeling back then.

I'm enjoying rooting for losses. It's like a hot summer day on the farm. Work your butt off laboring, but at night when it's cool and beautiful outside, you get to fuck the sheep.

Rooting for losses = hard labor

Sheep fucking = awesome Geno Smith time

I was thinking the same thing before the game today. After following for 23 years on the road, this is the first time I have questioned seriously why.

I was alive for the the SB can be the only answer why it took this long to ask.

I was actually getting excited for all the games this year, was excited going into this game. After the first half, yeah, I was done. It has just become boring. I will not root for a Chiefs loss ever, but have become incredibly bored with the product on the field.

The only thing fun about the NFL anymore is reading some of the posts on CP. 2010 was fun, but only because the team was so terrible in the prior years. Now we suck again. However, I have faith that the franchise can get turned around sometime within the next decade.

I fucking love seeing Cassel fail hard...I hate him so much...I have all this hate built up for the shitty QBs and HCs and GMs that have infected us over the years and it's like it's all concentrated in him, and I watch him fail, and see his failfaces, and know that he knows now that he sucks so fucking hard....and I smile the smile of an evil, twisted little gremlin, reveling in the failure of others.

I fucking love the fact that I had zero hope entering this season and was rewarded so richly with this bounty of fail. Every week, I love seeing these NFL maggots get their comeuppance.

Suck it hard, losers. You are the worst thing to ever happen to our franchise.

We fucking hate you, and you should feel like horrible people with vacant souls.

To save time I will just quote myself from fb....That is basically it. After having an owner that was instrumental in uniting the AFL and the NFL to form what we now know as the NFL, having an owner that cares more about his soccer team is kind of a let down.

I really want to care about the NFL again, but until my favorite teams owner starts to care, I find it hard to care.

2003?

The last "fun" year IMO was in 2005. We went 10-6 and missed the playoffs. But damn was that offense fun to Watch. We were in every game that year because of our offense. 2003 was probably the funnest though. 9-0 start, Dante halls explosive returned, priest Holmes, Trent green and that offensive line....miss those days! Especially after watching this team for the past several years.

It truly is a task...I felt a little pang of fear early in the game when Freeman was picked....I was really uncomfortable when it was only 7-3.

Then Freeman went HAM ON OUR ASSES in the second half and it was glorious parade of fistpumps. Fucking loved it.

Love that security of being up 21-3 and having Brady Quinn out there when you need a loss. Feels good.

Herm gave us a nice base when he left. There was a heartbeat there.

We weren't dead until these last four years under Pioli, who has wasted that talent.

He must be fired immediately or that talent will result in nothing.

I remember the suck teams of the 80's - cheering for Art Still to make a play because there wasn't much hope or talent to expect a great play from anyone else. This team feels the same way - maybe Charles breaks a run or Houston gets a sack - that's about it. You know you're going to lose, so you just hope to see your team make a play - pathetic and sad.

It's the inadvertent survival mechanism of the NFL. No matter how bad your team is, there are always a few players who are good, and you want to watch their career progress. Whether it's Art Still or Deron Cherry or Christian Okoye or Jamaal Charles, it keeps fans from completely disengaging when a team has a few bad decades.

I'm basically hoping for losses at this point. We need a #1 overall QB. It would bring a much needed breath of fresh air into this franchise that it desperately needs. I truly believe that. Be it Geno Smith or whoever it is, we need it. Not to mention a new HC, OC, DC...yeah basically a whole new coaching staff, and quite possibly a new GM to top it off. So after a horrible year of football, if we get a #1 pick QB, brand new coaching staff from top to bottom, not to mention the rest of our draft with the #1 pick in each round, and maybe a new GM, that would make me happy and excited for the future. How about you? Sound good? Let's get that #1 pick.

Probably a lot better than the shit we've drafted since Pioli took over. Heck even the one guy that I thought was a no brainer pick - Berry - is playing like ass. Maybe not entirely his fault due to his knee injury, but it still sucks. He was the one guy I thought we definitely "hit" on. Eh, he'll probably turn it around. But I am seriously doubting he'll ever be the Polamalu/Reed type of SS I had envisioned. It's a shame.

I don't blame Matt cassel...I used to, but it goes beyond him now. This really comes down to the front office and Scott Pioli. For the past four years, Scott Pioli has wasted valuable time on this failed experiment...time that could have been better spent developing a young promising QB...or shoveling out some srs cash to snag some talent that this team badly has needed. I applauded the Eric Berry pick, and the signing of Eric Winston. This team does have talent, but it is missing the most valuable piece to the puzzle; the QB. Also drafting a player that was projected to be a late first round pick with the third overall pick in the draft is a real head scratcher...

I'm afraid Pioli staked his entire reputation and career on a life time back up QB all for nothing. We all knew Cassel was nothing special when he came to KC. He was a backup QB at USC, He was a backup QB for one the best teams in football behind one of the greatest players to ever play the game. One good year on a team that was coming off of a 16-0 season does not make a franchise player. We gave up a second round pick and a $66 million contract to a back up player. The fact that "we've" stuck with Cassel all these years is inexcusable. Scott Pioli has to go!

When Schottenheimer was the coach I watched every second of every game, and I always watched the post-game press conferences because Marty was very entertaining.

With Vermeil I watched every second of every game, but I usually skipped the press conferences.

Today I did yard work. I checked the score in the 4th quarter, and then I went back to doing yard work.

Pioli is killing this franchise.

I agree that 2003 was the last fun year. There were entertaining moments in 2010.

Pioli did some good drafting after a craptastic first year draft and a couple of decent FA signings; but, otherwise, he has been a failure. His HC picks have been failures. His public relations efforts have been failures. His delusion that the Patriot Way was the "only" way was a failure. His abject ineptitude in judging QBs is an epic fail.

Remarkably, this team has talent. JC, Bowe, DJ, Berry, Hali, Houston, and Flowers are Pro Bowl caliber (though I am worried about Berry). We then have a group of talented folks behind that: Albert, Winston, Baldwin, TJ, Breaston, DMC, Arenas, etc. They are just coached poorly. The coaches have to go, and that has to be laid at the doorstep of Pioli too.
