Still Hate To Lose Like That

Plain and simple, the Kansas City Chiefs won’t feel too good about capping off an almost dominant performance by losing like that.  The Chiefs controlled the Seahawks for about 59 minutes of the game, only to see it fall away at the last second.  Meaningless or not, nobody feels good about losing a game like that.

It’s doubtful that this will have any kind of last effect.  It’s preseason, so the team should be able to put this out of sight and out of mind pretty quickly.  The Chiefs will get back out on the practice field this week and continue to work at getting ready for the season.  The Chiefs showed up where it was most important, but the circumstances still sting.  All of these guys are still competitors.

The Chiefs defense looked great for the rest of the night.  Very few negative takeaways, especially from the starters and second team guys.  The Seahawks struggled to move the ball, the Chiefs forced a turnover, and there was a clear feeling of confidence on the KC side of the field.  These are all good things, but that Hail Mary will sting for guys who compete for a living.

The Kansas City Chiefs will continue their preseason schedule on August 20th as they hit the road to take on the Los Angeles Rams.  The Chiefs will pick up Training Camp practices this week and conclude their stay in St Joseph, Missouri on the 18th.  From there they head back to the team facilities in Kansas City to conclude their offseason schedule.  They are off to a solid start and are showing why expectations are high this year.
