Bills Run Over Chiefs In Opener, 41-7

From Arrowhead Stadium

As opening games go, it was the worst in the 52-season history of the franchise.

With an offense stuck in the mud and a defense unable to cover the Buffalo Bills receivers and a special teams unit that provided no help, the Chiefs were smashed 41-7 in the 2011 season opener.

There was a nice, big crowd in the building, there to see if any improvement had been made after a 0-4 pre-season. The 60,000-plus that enjoyed a sun-splashed afternoon found out that this edition of the Chiefs has a long way to go. They were dominated by a football team that looked like a contender for the playoffs, as the Bills controlled the game from the opening kickoff when they forced a fumble and started the game with great field position.

The Chiefs had but 213 offensive yards. They turned the ball over three times. They gave up four passing touchdowns to Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, as the Bills put up 364 offensive yards.

The domination was whole and complete. Here’s what we saw:

    The beginning of the end of the Todd Haley era in KC. I had wondered if Todd Haley is a loudmoth imbecile previously, but his preseason strategy and the complete lack of preparedness for the season opener has confirmed my suspicions. I’m now hoping that the Chiefs win the Andrew Luck sweepstakes, and Clark Hunt and Scott Pioli have the presence of mind to hire a proven coach such as BIll Cowher in the future. From the opening moments of his tenure, Haley has alienated valuable veterans like Gonzalez and Waters and has driven off valuable assistants. I think Chan Gailey showed who can come up with the best offensive game plan yesterday.
