The halfway mark for this season is a sad point for Kansas City Chiefs fans.
This season hasn't been just bad; it's been demoralizing. The Chiefs brought in the NFL's premier executive as their GM. They hired the players' choice as head coach. "Elite" veterans and gifted draft picks litter their roster.
This should be a team demolishing a subpar AFC West. Instead, Kansas City sits at the bottom of the NFL with a 1-6 record. They have yet to lead in a game this year or score a touchdown in the first quarter. Five of their six games were already lost before the fourth quarter even started.
To steal an Archer quote, "There's not enough liquor and therapy in the world to undo that."
The sad part is that it's not going to get any better. Division rivals and improving teams dominate Kansas City's remaining schedule. Unless Kansas City can start capitalizing on their talent and stop turning the ball over, these last nine games will likely be as miserable as the first seven.
For an upside, Kansas City should hold one of the top spots in next year's draft. Too bad fans have to suffer through the rest of this season to get there.
