Limping Chiefs Get Blasted By Bengals

From Arrowhead Stadium

It was another game-day on Sunday and that meant another loss for the 2012 Chiefs.

The Cincinnati Bengals scored three touchdowns in the first half and one in the fourth quarter, but did not need the last two as they easily won 28-6 in front of a half-filled Arrowhead Stadium.

Whatever momentum and energy the Chiefs were able to produce from their effort in Pittsburgh on Monday night disappeared fairly quickly on this sunny November afternoon. The defense had trouble in the first half, but had a solid second half performance. The offense was bad the entire game, playing behind a patchwork offensive line and then losing WR Dwayne Bowe (neck) in the first half and LT Branden Albert (back) in the second half.

The Chiefs have now lost seven straight games and are now 1-9 on the season, the third season in the club’s 53-season history where they’ve held that record. The other seasons were 1987 and 2008.

    Hey jr. are your past decisions working out?

    Everyone should be wondering where might this team be with Kyle Orton at quarterback. Pioli should be kicked out on his ass. Haley was a scapegoat for pioli’s bad decisions. I have been a fan of the chiefs for 41 years and it sucks watching them at this point. Blow this thing up.

    Has there ever been a more clueless looking head coach for an entire game such as Romeo was on tv today? Romeo, Hunt & Pioli won’t do the right thing. Do us all a favor & go ahead & resign. Its the honorable thing to do. You are doing horribly. You clearly don’t have the answers. Your players don’t play consistently or intelligently. One has to conclude that if its not your message, its the messenger(s). You’re a wonderful man. You’ve had a great career, but you’re just not a good head coach. You didn’t have much talent in Cleveland, but the same cannot be said for here in KC. Please take Daboll with you.

    We have to begin drafting quality talent that can match up physically with the teams in our division-primarly. That’s where it begins. We must have a better QB. Without that, we’re relegated to second tier, if not lower, possibilities & destined to be the victims of a pee wee offense.

    Whats with the 3 separate penaltys today for running out of bounds and then coming back on the field to make a play???? Don’t any of these guys even know the fundamental rules of the game???? Go watch Romeo’s “Presser” over on the Chiefs homepage. Its really really SAD. He is a beaten down man at this point. He really doesn’t know what to do??? What is Clark waiting for???? Its not going to get any better with Peyton coming to town!!!!!

    My grandson’s high school football team lost twice by a score of 70-7. We were, by the end of the games, cold and once wet and cold. We didn’t leave early because, down by 63, damn if they weren’t still trying.

    The game on Sunday we left at 6 mins and 38 secs to go. Because, damn, the Chiefs were not trying.

    Let me see…high schoolers playing for pride. Pros playing for millions. I think people should start losing jobs.

    Watch the exodus to the IR with ghost-like injuries. Poor Pioli; not many places for him to hide. Oh, yeah, Clark’s private suite. You go Pioli.

    Uh…I mean you go. Pioli. Away.

    That was disgusting. For the first time in probably the last ten years, I am not bothering to make the drive up for the game this weekend. Clark had better do something soon or his “Chiefs Nation” of fans in other states will not be coming back.

    tx, I feel your pain and understand, a little, about your drive. Going used to be fun and, since Pioli, so long driving home.

    We’re going on Thurs to KC for Thanksgiving, going back home and then going back on Saturday for the Bronco game.

    I drive a Traverse. Just to pack all the tailgate equipment my wife thinks she needs. At 80 mph it’s 18 mpg.

    We’re going to lose. Manning will like have a feast. There will be more Denver fans than Chiefs fans.

    Tailgating won’t be that much fun because I’m wearing red. My wife, son and grandaughter are stronger than I am so I’m sure I’ll be restrained before anything bad happens.

    So I don’t blame you for staying home. I almost wish I was going to do it. Maybe next game.

    After reading your comments, it will be a good exercise in the land of “how about that”. The middle ring is ususally empty anyway, the upper and lower will be split 60/40, wonder which group will be in majority…. so much for “fabled franchise”.
