Everybody knows the Miami Dolphins suck, and they can't beat a dirty rug.

Everybody but the Miami Dolphins that is. Somehow, no one got them the message.

The Fins put in a memorable performance at Arrowhead stadium Sunday. If you're a Chiefs fan (like me) it's not a good memory (that's putting it mildly; think nightmares here).

Congratulations Miami on a game well played. No matter what anybody says, the Dolphins won that game on their own performance not Kansas City's lack of.

 

Now that that's out of the way Chiefs fans...

Stop making excuses AND calling for heads...stuff happened. Let's move on.

Kansas City is a young, growing, and yes, inconsistent team. I can't believe I have to point that out to anyone after the last season and a half. If you don't already know that, you're either not paying attention, or you don't watch their games at all.

Kansas City is NOT a playoff contender yet. Again, I can't see why that would surprise anyone.

 

The flip flopping and apologetics are getting almost as old as Tebowmania.

 A couple good games and...

 

"Haley is the greatest coach ever and Cassel's starting to be a pretty decent quarterback."

One bad one..."Off with their heads!"

Bipolar much?

If you want to call for someone's head, do it all season or at least most of it.

When you can't make up your mind from win to loss, you lose all credibility towards any kind of performance analysis.

 

OR...

"They had a short week."

"They were wore out."

"We're out three key players."

Sure, all of those are true, but great teams overcome. Kansas City has tremendous talent on both sides of the ball, but they ARE NOT a great team.

They are a pretty decent one, and their arrow is still pointing up, but that's about it right now.

They lost Sunday's game because...wait for it...

The other team played better—much, MUCH better.

That's the only reason, and there's nothing we can do about it. The game is played and lost. Let's look to Denver and hope Kansas City learned something Sunday.
