Chiefs Losing Streak Reaches 4 Games

From Arrowhead Stadium

The Kyle Orton Era as the Chiefs starting quarterback may have begun Sunday night, even with the new quarterback on the sidelines wearing sweats watching his new team lose to the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-9.

It was Tyler Palko’s job to lose and he did not help himself or the Chiefs on a chilly Sunday night in front of a national television audience. Palko turned the ball over three times and could not get the offense into the end zone for the second consecutive week, as the Chiefs have now lost four in a row and stand 4-7 on the season.

The Chiefs defense had a good night and that was about it for the red and gold. They allowed Ben Roethlisberger just one touchdown and used a number of blitzes to put heat on the Steelers QB all day.

Here’s our coverage that will continue through the Monday morning.

    It’s kind of like going to a Chiefs game and sitting for hours in the parking lot taking in the sights and smells of all the tailgate barbecues and then going into the stadium and being handed a McRib sandwich.

    LMAO no comment after johnfromfairfax makes that statement this man speaks the truth. But hey we had Palko I mean did anyone really think he was going lead game winning drive after watch 1st 3 quarters of the game.

    Too bad for Palko. There were some bright spots from some of the rookies though.

    When this game ended, I said that I felt bad for those on the team that have worked so hard only to have one player single-handedly lose the game. My wife simply said, “They can feed their families by working hard, win or lose.” Good point, but I imagine Palko will do so with the Whoppers he’ll be flipping after this season.

    At least we got Kenny. Got to stay upbeat. I guess you have to hope the Chiefs organization will learn from their mistakes. It is not like Hunt or Pioli is going anywhere, Haley may need to start updating his resumes …..former HC of the KC Chiefs. LOL

    Tons of injuries this year, but there has also been loads of uninspired play and pratically unlimited incompetence from the head coach. Crennel’s defense is what has sown promise, although it is obvious that the team does not have the right personnel on the line to play the 3-4.

    Orton needs to get some playing time soon, but I would really like to see Stanzi spend some quality time on the field as well. The Chiefs will need know what they have when they must consider who and what to draft next year. A compensatory pick for letting Orton go after the season could help add depth on either line.

    I think Haley is doing a great job with this team. Haley will be here several more years and I expect he and Pioli will get the LH/Lombardi Trophies back to KC soon. Still a season or two away, the pieces are not in place quite yet.

    Hey rufus, good attitude. I am not sure what the management can do in a “season or two”, but if you say so. I figuring more like 5-7 years of course by then DJ, Charles, the OL, DL, K, P will need replacement due to age and injury. But you are right the pieces are not in place yet.

    Palko is the worst QB I have seen play for the Chiefs in 34 years of having season tickets. How bad must Stanzi be to not be able to beat that whiney punk out?
    Whomever decided those 2 long haired punks were NFL QB’s should be held responsible.
