Welcome To My Blog

If you are into talking about the Kansas City Chiefs, this is the place to be. I am Aiken_Drum and I am a Chiefaholic. If you are too, great! Let's discuss this team that we inexplicably love to follow. Don't be afraid to be critical here. Positive or negative, they are all thoughts about the Chiefs. Also, do not tell ANYBODY here that they shouldn't respond in a certain way. You don't like what they said? Just stop commenting. Be the bigger commentor.

It Couldn't Get Worse...Right?

  Unfortunate.  Ill-fated. Ill-starred. Luckless. Unlucky.
All the above are synonyms for the word Hapless.  The Chiefs are a hapless team.  No matter how you slice it, no matter what excuse you choose to use (and OH, the excuse machines are running overtime today!!), and no matter what perspective you wish to observe from, this is a Hapless team.
In fact, you could even say that Joe Montana was unable to overcome this haplessness.  He got injured on what would have been his final Super Bowl run while wearing a Chiefs jersey.  For Joe, that was a bit out of the ordinary.  Just another nail in the hapless coffin that surrounds the Kansas City Chiefs.

I Told You So Isn't Strong Enough

Well, well, well.  We finally got to see Mr. Andy Reid show his ass on the sidelines.  How does it feel Chiefs fans?  Still want to offer to carry his water?  I'll be writing more in the coming days, but I felt it necessary to remind one and all that this was exactly my fear all season.  We've started down the path of another 3-5 years of heart wrenching losses because of Andy Reid and Alex Smith.

They need to go and they need to go NOW!  No excuses, no exceptions.  It's time to move on.

Now THAT Is Chiefs Football!!

Hiya Chiefs Fans!!  Feeling good today?  Empowered?  Excited about the upcoming playoffs?  If your answer is yes, you could be suffering delusions of granduer.  I'll let you look that up if you don't know what it means, but suffice it to say the Chiefs did their best yesterday to snap all the fan bois out of their dream state.  I found this picture of Johnny Unitas showing off the new Alex Smith/Knile Davis football.  Notice the handle.  Unfortunately, even if he'd used this yesterday it wouldn't have helped.

Mystery Solved--The 55% Solution

Howdy Chiefs Fans!!!  How ya doing???  What's with all those long faces and evil looks?  Come now, you didn't really believe this Chiefs team was going to go 16-0 on a march to the Super Bowl--DID YOU?  Sherlock has solved the riddle.  It's all about the 55% solution.

It was pretty easy to predict this down turn would happen if you were actually, you know, honest with yourself about how good (or not) this team really is.  Don't ever lose sight of the fact that this is about being good enough to beat anybody, not just to be 'improved'.  It's not good enough just to get better unless that better is really best.  Ya know?
