Apparently Mark Kiszla is a Planeteer

K.C. no longer Chief enemy
By Mark Kiszla
The Denver Post
Article Last Updated: 09/28/2008 12:25:31 AM MDT


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.

The last time I saw a team this confident in a win, Bernard Pollard made their QB walk funny.

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.

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.

Or until someone is held accountable for it.
