This week. Next week. In the wonderful world of the NFL there is always next week, unless it's Week 17. Always another week, another game, another chance to prove your worth to your fans, although in the case of the Colts we might have a few doubts. In the case ot the Kansas City Chiefs, it's not a minute too soon to move on from a loss to the Denver Broncos and
Jesus Tim Tebow. Only problem is that it now appears the Chiefs will be moving forward without the services of one Matt "I'm No Tom Brady" Cassel.
As has been already widely reported and commented upon, Cassel has been ruled out indefinitely for a hand injury sustained in last week's dreadful loss to the Broncos. How bad was it? Tebow threw only 8 passes all game long. He conntected on just 2. One of those was TD. Right then. Enough about the past misfortunes of the Chiefs, it's time now to talk about the future misfortunes of the Chiefs, beginning with ...
... are you ready for some football under the lights in Foxboro? Of course you are! A few months ago many Arrowhead Priders were looking forward to this game, eager for the Chiefs to have the opportunity to show the Patriots and the rest of the league just how far they've come in a short time, just how good the team was this year, just how ...
Wait! Hold it! Stop the presses! OK, so the Chiefs got a few (or a lot) of breaks last yar, right? Still they had one the NFL's best RB's in Jamaal Charles, a Pro-Bowl stud S in Eric Berry, a rookie TE named TonyM who was almost making fans in KC think of TonyG and of course the Cassel-to-Bowe Connection. Now? Well, Bowe is still planning to suit up this coming week, along with Steve Breaston and Jon "Thumb Injury? What Thumb Injury?" Baldwin. We still have Tamba Hali, Flowers and Carr, DJ and ... oh, wait, we don't have Brian Waters anymore, do we? No wonder the OLine has been shaky, but such is life in the NFL, right?
Right. But hey, it's the NFL and anything can happen, right? I mean, the Ravens have lost to both the Jags and the Seachickens. See? Anything is possible in the Wacky World of the NFL. Even a Chiefs victory is possible ... right? Right? The Chiefs might even figure out how to stop Welker or Gronkowski, right?
Well, the game is on, regardless, and you can stop your polite snickering anytime now. Have a question about the Chiefs? Fire away and we'll give you all the answers we know, and even a few that we have to make up, because we're just THAT good, even if the Chiefs aren't.
