Nick’s Chiefs Briefs: Week 17

The Chiefs lost a relatively meaningless game this week, big freaking deal.  It’s time to move on and think about the Playoffs.  The Chiefs control their own destiny, what more could you want?  Now is when the real football begins, and it’s time to get fired up.  Let’s get down to our bright gold and yellow Briefs, shall we?

.

  • It’s time to stop whining and trying to pull meaning from a loss in a relatively meaningless game.  Momentum, schmomentum.  There’s no such thing as momentum.  A win or loss the previous week has little or nothing to do with what happens the next week.

.

  • Yes, the Chiefs got into the Playoffs on the back of a weak schedule.  Again, so what?  If they win a few games here in a row, whether by luck or by talent, they can be Super Bowl Champions.  Yeah, I said it.

.

  • The Chiefs are having a rally at the P&L District on Friday.  If your spirit needs a boost, head over there and get fired up.

.

  • The Star posted an article from the Baltimore Sun asking “What’s been ailing Ravens’ offense?”  Hopefully it’s Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson this weekend.

.

  • So Charlie Weis is taking his talents to Florida to be a coordinator.  If his career path continues on this trajectory, he’ll be the o-line coach at Winnetonka High School in a couple of years.  People keep wondering how this effects the Chiefs this season. The answer: not at all.  If the only thing that helped the Chiefs win was knowing that Weis would be there in 2012, then they wouldn’t be a very good football team.

.

.

  • The Chiefs are in the Playoffs and are AFC West Champions, yet they only sold out one game all season.  How can the “most popular sport” not sell 80,000 tickets to 8 home games?  Clearly the Chiefs are charging way too much money, but seriously, what’s the deal?

.

  • If the Chiefs lose to the Ravens this week, they will set the record for most consecutive playoff losses with seven.  I’m not really in a record setting move, so how about we don’t set that record, ok?

.

  • I think that the key to winning the game for the Chiefs is ball possession.  They need to run the ball effectively and own time of possession. More importantly, they’re going to need to not turn the ball over.  No interceptions, no fumbles.  Not two, not one, but none.  Own that football like Omar Epps in The Program.  It seems simple, but it won’t be.  Not with a team that prides itself on defense like the Ravens do.

.

  • Chiefs historical stat of the week: franchise postseason record: 8-13 – Time to even up that ledger a bit.

  • i haven’t heard too many people belittle the Chiefs for having a weak schedule but for any that have, I will say that while the Chiefs went 4-0 against the NFC West, the rest of the AFC West went 5-7 vs. the weakest division in football.

    I don’t think too many other AFC teams had a real claim to stake on the playoffs. The Jaguars maybe but they aren’t as good as the Chiefs. The Chargers managed to miss the playoffs despite having the #1 offense and defense. Their loss.
