Chiefs Unable to Crack Victory Code, Lose Again

From Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego

At least they were competitive. Scratch that.

At least they were competitive for three quarters. What happened in the fourth quarter on Thursday night in San Diego wiped away any good that could have come from being competitive.

The Chargers won 31-13 and the Chiefs losing streak is now five games and their record for the season drops to 1-7.

There were many elements of this game that were so familiar to those that came before, but in this case it wasn’t so much their own mistakes that sunk the chances for victory. It was the inability of anybody on the team to make a play when one was needed.

Time after time in the first three quarters the Chiefs were in situations where a single play would have turned the tide. But eventually the only tide they saw was the Chargers washing over them and making them 4-4 at the halfway point of the season.

There’s plenty to cover in this one:

    Pitiful. The only consistency we demonstrate is the ability to find new ways to lose and hit new historical lows for the franchise.

    This might be the worst modern day team of all-time. This team is worse than the 0-16 Lions.

    I’m embarassed.

    Has an owner of an NFL team ever been fired? I don’t think so.

    Clark has siblings that own equal shares of the Chiefs. What are they thinking? Not the same as me or they’d be spanking the little jerk and even taking away his soccer team. He is a joke. His “management” team is a joke. Good God, now the whole Chiefs team is a joke.

    Should see the texts I’ve indured tonight. These from “friends”. And worse, I don’t blame them.

    Best was a cartoon with a little girl trick or treating, running back to her mom crying “Awww, mom, they gave me Chief tickets”.

    Sweetie, that could be a whole lot worse; I paid for the damn things.

    As I was watching the pregame show on the NFL network I was thinking, are the Chiefs going to win this game? I thought, yes they could win it if they show up with the kind of NFL quality passing offence I really think Matt Cassell is capable of on a good day. Then I thought, no I bet the Chiefs are going to lose another one. Hmmm, what do I think the score will be? A rout, San Diego will score a lot of points, but not anything enormous. I’m guessing 31 points. What about the Chiefs? They’ll get a field goal in the first half, another field goal and a touchdown in the second half, probably in the fourth quarter, so 13 points. I watched the game until half time (but kind of slept through the Chiefs field goal–it’s been a long day). I watched Big Bang Theory with my wife and kids and some other shows and missed the rest of the game. I logged onto the KC Star webpage around 10:45 central time. Score of the game: Chargers 31, Chiefs 13. The Chiefs are so predictable I actually predicted the score–yay me. We should have sucked for Luck last year. Who are we sucking for this year?

    ATrain, you remind me of a lot of fans I sit around in Arrowhead; a lot of sleeping.

    Stay awake and you might, maybe, understand that the problem is not sucking for, rather sucking because of.

    You’re pretty good at guessing. Guess which finger I’m holding up.

    Sorry, not nice. yay you.

    Well this game was predictable. Said Cassel would get couple field goals Check!!, Said Cassel would have couple turnovers Check !!, said Cassel would get a bunch of 3 and outs Check !!, Said Cassel would have a late game touchdown like he always does Check!! Did I miss anything???

    atrain81 still say Geno Smith going to be worth top spot. We would be 3-4 right now if he was Qb.

    Local media and, I suspect, many fans are just waiting for movement at One Arrowhead. One radio station hits its “refresh” button just waiting.

    I am predicting Clark rides this mess out. Until…..well, I am not sure of who or when. Maybe after the bitter end of the season.

    Watched the game, SD was as pitiful as the Chiefs. Had Hunt’s Chiefs had anything going for it, there was a game to win….of course, they threw that away.

    Next game MNF, this will be worse, if that is possible. Pitts will rest their starters at the half just to not embarrass the NFL on national tv.

    Just saying, I’m pretty sure Haley will put a world of hurt on his former bosses.
    Personally, I’m back in 1988 mode. Back then all we had was Super Fan Ed Beiler to help us organize the boycott of the last 2 games.
    Check out on facebook. Like the page to show young Clark we’ve had it.
    Make sure to wear all black to the Cincy game.
