Where's the beef, bread, mayonnaise and all the fixings?
Watching the game tonight was painful, so hurtful I doubted everything I thought true about the 2012 season. So much hype has gone into what fans want the Chiefs to be that few stopped to ask if they could get there.
Kansas City has a talented roster, but it's not producing. Receivers aren't catching the ball and currently Dexter McCluster looks like the entire offense for Matt Cassel.
What happened against the Seattle Seahawks still hasn't sunk in, but it stunk. It smelled worse that the St. Louis Rams. At least against the Rams it felt like Kansas City woke up to score, but with the Seahawks the Chiefs never reared their head.
The starters played for nearly three quarters, but it didn't make a difference. The defense was gutted and stuffed. The pressure never came and at one point Seattle had 181 total yards to the Chiefs 11. Again, this was with Kansas City's starters in for most of the game.
It was hard to walk from this one using thinking "it's just preseason", because how dysfunctional Kansas City was made me think it's more. It made me question Romeo Crennel himself.
For the past two games this team hasn't been prepared. They've been outplayed, out hustled and out coached. That's not supposed to happen; Kansas City retooled their coaching staff to be better.
Better was far from Kansas City tonight. They look a long way away from their regular season goal of being ready for the Atlanta Falcons. Kansas City is reverting to its 2011 self.
Someplace the Gatorade has left Crennel and the special isn't so special.
Do I think this roster has skill, you bet, but it's hard to believe that no Brandon Flowers and Kendrick Lewis would lead to 44 points given up at home. I didn't see a knockout coming like the one the Seahawks dished out Friday night.
Media people started tweeting it's time to worry, while fans were speechless watching the starters struggle.
"I thought overall we just looked dominated in all aspects of the game," said a fan about the game. "Cassel wasn't as bad as some think, but he wasn't very good either. Average. The WR's have to catch the ball! Running game was absent. Hillis ran the ball once. Defense...what can you say? No pressure, bad tackling."
Overall Kansas City fans took it hard. Reality is true, whether you like it or not. This truth, the game fans saw at Arrowhead against the Seattle Seahawks, looked good for the Atlanta Falcons.
It didn't for the Chiefs who could be without three starters, one which was present for the 44 – 14 beat down of Kansas City.
Whatever magic Crennel had over this team to end the 2011 season needs found. If not with the early part of the Chiefs schedule it could get ugly in a hurry.
Hype doesn't win, players showing up do. The Chiefs haven't showed up, it's up to them when they do.
I have to go sleep this one off now.
Good day, Chiefs fans!
