I was going to let this week go by without making this entry for a couple of reasons. For one, I wasn't able to watch the game. It wasn't televised here locally. Big surprise there..I know. I could have went to Buffalo Wild Wings (which wasn't open this time last year) to watch it. However, I was still slowly recovering from a cold that was kicking my butt all weekend. I decided it wasn't worth it. Thought about it though. What changed my mind was checking up on the score which led to the second reason I wanted to forego this entry.
My trusty ESPN app gave me an update informing me that the Chiefs were down 14-0 in the first quarter. First of all, I had the start time of the game all wrong if the first quarter had already been completed. There was really no need to go somewhere to watch the game if it was 1/4 over. And secondly...really Chiefs?? How do you go down 0-14 in the second quarter in your home opener? To the Buffalo Bills no less.
The funny thing was I was just talking to G the other day about how the only type of game I haven't seen yet that I want to see is an NFL game. That one of these days we need to go to a Chiefs game to remedy that. That now would be the best time to do it because our cousin Earl lives very close to the stadium so we could stay there and not have to drive very far to get to the game. And most importantly, that it would be a good year because after how the Chiefs did last year they would definitely be on the upswing this year and be the team to watch.
Then they lose at Arrowhead to the Bills 41-7. So with that being said then why do I have a picture of the Chiefs cheerleaders here? Well with a score like that the cheerleaders were the only decent thing to see during that game.
I can't say I didn't see it coming though. Kansas City went 0-4 in the preseason. I said then that I understood it was only the preseason, but I was getting tired of seeing them lose. There was no reason they couldn't have manned up and one at least one single preseason game. What do you expect is going to happen when you come off a streak like that to open the regular season? Maybe if they were a better team they would be able to throw the switch to turn it on for game on. Evidently, you can see they are not that team.
To make matters worse, news just came out that safey Eric Berry is out for the season with an ACL tear. His void at the safety position is apparently the reason they allowed 41 points. And that was against just the Bills. To say that things don't look good for the rest of the season would be an understatement. They can't stop anybody and they can't outscore anybody. Man it's going to be a long season...
