Kansas City Chiefs: Worst Thing That Could Happen Is Be NFL's Last Unbeaten Team

The Chiefs really screwed things up this past weekend.  How did they manage that?  By doing nothing.  Now that the Royals' season is over everyone will be paying attention to them.  For those of you who didn't get the sarcasm, you need a nap.

Virtually every article I've read today has made some mention of the "KC Chiefs being the only unbeaten team."

So, what's the bad part?  Almost every one was in a derogatory fashion.  Also, the heat between now and next Sunday just got turned up.

The other piece of bad news?  Jacksonville 31, Indianapolis 28.  It's hard enough to deal with Peyton Manning and the Colts as it is, but it's much worse dealing with a desperate and angry Manning.

The Steelers certainly could have pulled out their game and left us with one other unbeaten team. 

The Bears, oh my goodness.  I cannot remember seeing anything quite like that.  I almost started to feel bad for Jay Cutler.  After the 23rd sack in the first quarter I knew the Chiefs were the only unbeaten team left in the NFL.

I assure you, now come the sarcastic comments about the Chiefs being the only unbeaten team left.  That will be followed by the equally disrespectful articles and comments about how they won't be after next Sunday.

That's OK with me.  That's been the recipe for success so far for the Chiefs.  They were underdogs for all three games.  They will in this one too, rightfully.  It will be interesting to see by how much.

I like the fact that there is so much to read about the Chiefs as opposed to the last few years.  Like most fans, it pisses me off that so much of it is negative.  I suppose that's fair.  With 10 wins over three years they've earned it.

I wrote my letter to Matt Cassel.  I think he's the key.  I know the Chiefs are building a very successful team, for this year and the future.  Not because I'm a fan, but I know the game, and this team.  I've written about that too.

They don't need to beat the Colts to get respect.  They have it for themselves for a change.  We know they're going to lose games. 

It would be nice to win this Sunday. 

Everyone would pretty much have to change their tune or shut up, wouldn't they?
