Mellinger | Chiefs discover new way to fail (http://www.kansascity.com/2012/11/13/3914483/chiefs-best-effort-of-year-still.html)
By SAM MELLINGER
The Kansas City Star
The Chiefs’ best game of the year ended in the most appropriate way possible: a turnover and a loss. Now comes the part where they push and pull about what it means. Everything up to the jobs of the head coach and general manager may hang in the balance.

That we’re now into the second half of the season with the Chiefs having one win and talking about their best game ending in a loss would be sadder if we weren’t well past the point of worrying about such signs of ineptitude.

The Chiefs played tough, and fearless. And even though they blew what turned out to be a 16-13 loss in overtime here on Monday night, as long as the men in charge are still in charge they have a chance to stay in charge.

Hey, if nothing else, they finally ended that ridiculous season-long streak of never leading while the clock was running. They looked, mostly, like a real NFL team. Like they practice and everything.

“The guys played their hearts out,” coach Romeo Crennel said. “If the guys keep playing that way, we’ll get this turned.”

It remains virtually impossible to imagine them doing it, but in a season of such historical and thorough failure you can hear quarterback Matt Cassel say this was “without a doubt” the Chiefs’ best game of the year and nod your head with understanding.

But looked at from other angles, the Chiefs found new ways to embarrass themselves. So we picked up a few more anecdotes to rehash if and when owner Clark Hunt decides to make major changes.

He already had all the reasoning he needs, but an unforgettably creative one came in the third quarter when the Chiefs did the Chiefs-est thing of the season: a “group celebration” penalty for a touchdown that didn’t count on their way to 1-8. The refs called back the score on a penalty, but did enforce the penalty.

So to review: the guys tied for the worst record in the league got flagged for celebrating a touchdown that never happened. This is officially the cockiest terrible team in NFL history.

Every once in a while, a dirty mop bucket of a season breaks for comedy.

Starting today, the Chiefs will publicly try to spin this as a positive turning point. They will talk about how hard they played and how they took a Super Bowl contender into overtime on the road, but they’re just as likely to have peaked as continue to ascend.

Because how much longer will the defense continue to play this hard when the quarterback goes 11 for 26 with the game-ending interception?

How much longer will Jamaal Charles continue to run so hard for a team going nowhere, each hit taking a bit off the already perilous career of an NFL running back?

The Chiefs very clearly took this matchup against their old coach on their sport’s biggest stage personally, and part of how this season ends up will depend on how Hunt interprets it.

He can be impressed with the effort, or frustrated that personal vendettas are required to bring it out.

He can think about taking one of the NFL’s model franchises to the wire, or he can think of the stupid mistakes and embarrassing moments that made it end in another disappointment.

A missed field goal, a kickoff out of bounds, a kick return fumbled and picked up twice, continued problems covering the tight end, a hole at left guard, more dropped passes, the knucklehead star receiver taunting Pittsburgh’s defense on a touchdown that got called back, and this list could keep going.

Remember, a miniature meltdown in New York served as the final sin that allowed Scott Pioli to fire Todd Haley last year.

In strictly football terms, the Chiefs just played their best game for a coach and GM who will need more of it to stick around long-term. There’s a banner scheduled to fly above Kansas City rush hour traffic Friday morning that represents a vocal segment of the fan base rooting against that.

The Chiefs’ future depends in part on whether the buttoned-down owner cares more about a team playing hard, or the embarrassing moments that did them in.

We just need to keep the pressure up, don't let scumbags like Pioli try to spin anything into success. We need to let Clark know a three point loss in OT is still NOT acceptable. A good team (franchise) would have beat the Steelers by 20+ points last night easily!

it's amazing how little concern anyone in this franchise has about the fact we are 1-8 and fucking embarrassing....

as long as everyone feels like they're trying, it's ok by pioli...as long as Cassel means well, it is ok that he has stolen every single penny of his contract...no accountability from Clark means no accountability for anyone (except stanford routt, who was i guess our only problem)

Roleo is a survivor.

You simply don't achieve his status in the NFL without cutting some throats along the way. Nor, of course, do you achieve his girth without stealing other people's food. I am certain that, when Pioli has him over, the kitchen cabinets and fridge are padlocked.

Was the Hali/Houston dance a traditional African dance? I'm just curious what that was?

I watched Nigeria win the gold at the 1996 Olympics in Athens and they were dancing similar to that.

Yes. It is a variation of the traditional African fire god dance in which the natives are known to engage when attempting to prevent a volcano from erupting and covering their village with 90 feet of molten lava.

Wasn't that the drive that led to the go ahead FG for Pitt? Without the dancing penalty, the Steelers punt after the refs reviewed the play. Instead, it was 15 yards and a first down near mid-field.

Driving home just now, I was listening to ESPN Radio and the Chiefs were being discussed. The comment was made how embarrassing the organization has become. Not sure who, but the talking head said "Are you aware of "SaveOurChiefs.com?" He began to share about the "grass roots" movement of dedicated Chiefs fans and how it's really amazing that a professional sports team has such a dilemma on it's hands. That fans are calling for the head of a GM. "Never heard of such a thing." He went on to say what others have said numerous times. "Arrowhead was such a scary place for opposing teams in the past. Not anymore." :(
