Different Story, Same Results In 20-15 Defeat

From Raymond James Stadium

Week No. 2 of the NFL pre-season is in the books for the Chiefs and the results are not pretty. Not pretty at all. With some areas of their play improved since last week’s opening defeat in Atlanta, the outcome was still on the negative side in Tampa, Florida.

Buccaneers 20, Chiefs 15.

In two pre-season games they’ve scored a total of 25 points, while allowing 45 points. The Chiefs have to find a way to score more points and allow fewer. There’s a lot of ground to cover with what happened Saturday evening in Tampa. Here’s our take:

    Bob…I like you a lot. I sincerely hope you are not trying to fill the void left by Whitlock leaving. It seems to me that you were one of the people saying that watching the players and the one-on-one match-ups was the most important things and that wins and losses in the preseason are meaningless. Yes, the Chiefs needs to score more points but let’s not be ridiculous about this. Those are second and third stringers out there. Many of those players are going to leave and go on to be doctors and lawyers and any other number of professions. Let’s not go overboard with this. It is what it is….a PRESEASON loss. Our players improved their performance. We should be happy….

    P.S. If you are still a little down….go and check out the Colts preseason records for the last several years….

    This does seem like a Whitlock article. How about comparing 1st team vs 1st team and also taking into account that it’s preseason that my bet would be that these little scenarios the coaching staff plays, such as kicking the field goal last night instead of another shot at the end zone are to prepare the team for real game experience in those type of situations. I’m beginning to believe that all journalists and sports talk hosts are unrealistic pessimists.
