Raiders Go Home With Another K.C. Victory

From Arrowhead Stadium

Once one of pro football’s most storied and intense rivalries, the Chiefs and Raiders have been little more than just another game on an NFL weekend.

That was true again on Sunday, where for the sixth consecutive year Oakland rolled into town and rolled back out with a 23-9 victory over the Chiefs. The 6-game winning streak matches the longest held by any visitor to Kansas City in the history of the franchise.

The Brady Quinn ended quickly as he was sacked hard, threw a very bad interception and somewhere in the middle of all that he suffered a concussion and left the game. Matt Cassel came in and it was more of what the Chiefs have shown all season, turnovers, mistakes, blown opportunities.

Here’s what we found after the game:

    The game was agonizing to watch to say the least. Two game changing plays (besides turnovers): Breaston drops a 22 yard pass for a 1st down and D. Moore only gets 1 foot in end zone and then hip lands a foot out of bounds for a touchdown on 3rd down.

    For those watching live, the commentary on TV stated that no NFL team since 1940 has gone seven straight games without a lead in regulation. Thank you Clark, Scott, Romeo, and Matt for making this the least successful team in 72 years. Love you guys. Go Chiefs!

    Brady Quinn, not the answer…Matt Cassel, not the answer…Ryan Lilja, major problem! why can’t we find a freaking center that can snap the ball??
    Now we see why Breastononly has 4 catches this year…he can’t catch!!

    On just slightly a little different note. Has anyone noticed that Tamba is invisible out there anymore. Where is our sackmaster this year??? Gotta give DJ, McCluster, and Flowers an A+ today. Offensive Line once again gets a D. J. Charles would probably give them a D-. This team just can’t put any meaningful points on the board.

    It seems every time the Chiefs step on the field they reach a new low.

    The season will be over when they are at loss #8 but this season ended just before the last college draft. Or did they hire Daboll first? Which ever.

    I will watch the Thurs. game as I want to see who the QB is, not because they have a chance in hell of going for 7 straight wins.

    This is well past ugly. Catch Crennel’s after game interview. If he has not lost his mind, he is hiding somewhere he cannot find it.

    All of the culture developed under Haley is gone. The toughness. The will. The “career” years.

    We saw players play to their ful potential. Now, we see lifeless players going through the motions.

    This is not to say Haley was THE answer. But he brought a culture that has not been built on. It has not moved forward. Worse, it has left the building.

    That being said, I hope they keep losing. I hope Pioli is fired and a GM comes in who knows what they are doing and can work with others. Who is a leader of men and an organization.

    The few good things pointing to progress are no more.

    Romeo has been lost since being named HC. Obvious that he has in turn lost this team. At this point, I don’t see how the Chiefs don’t let him go…except there is no one on staff to take that roll.

    Breaston and Routt need to be asked to do some soul searching, then asked to leave if they aren’t committed. A little shake up may get something going and get some young guys on the field.

    Not even sure where the offense goes. Teams are going to stack the line to stop the run. The passing game consists of look to Bowe then check down. Not hard to defend.

    Well, it was probably a waste to consider it but for the last two weeks the Chiefs did:

    1. Hunt took a letter writer to lunch
    2. Quinn was made starter.

    Not all that much sense of urgency. No we ride this mess out with the guys on the roster. Probably with Cassel if Quinn is really hurt.

    I feel bad today for Derrick Johnson. The guy played his heart out yesterday. At one point in the 4th quarter with the Raiders at the Chief’s 11 yard line, D.J. was frantically waving his arms before the snap trying to get some noise going for Palmer. It didn’t work. You can’t blame the fans at that point either. It’s the first time I can remember hearing an opposing quarterback’s cadence at Arrowhead.

    This is just another example of how bad it’s gotten. It is no longer accurate to call the Chiefs one of the worst teams in the NFL. I’m now very sorry to say the Chiefs are THE worst team in the league. Carolina has the same record, but at least they have started their turn-a-round by firing their GM and they have drafted what may become a young franchise quarterback.

    A few of the Chiefs played with pride yesterday. It is not fair to them for the way this team is being ran from the top.

    I feel sorry for txchief. He says he drives from texas to games. Hope the law enforcement agencies between KC and his home had an eye out for him. Suicide is a bad thing.

    It’s pathetic, simply pathetic. If I were Clark Hunt, I would be embarrassed that my organization put that garbage out on the field. If Hunt can’t see that the time for change has come, he never will. One thing he will definitely see is a huge drop in STH payments.

    Cid, that was a very long drive back. I ususally wait until after breakfast on oanday to drive back. Decided to leave about 0100 instead. I wasn’t sleeping anyway. Not suicidal yet, but I’m definitely disillusioned.
