The Kansas City Chiefs have looked like pretenders through five games. Is it as bad as it seems for the 2-3 runner-ups in 2021?
I do not believe there is a silver lining with the Buffalo Bills game. How can the Kansas City Chiefs be a Super Bowl team, as well as a contending team year after year, if they turn the ball over and let teams run all over them?
I do not know what else to say about this team other than they need to play better.
With the Washington Football Team coming up, it seems like the Chiefs may be able to get a win. After that, the Tennessee Titans scared me with the NFL’s rushing leader at 640 Yards through just five games, Derrick Henry, at the helm.
Then, Kansas City is back at home with the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
If they can get through these next two games with no stress, then hopefully they can turn this season around because right now, the team has not looked good at all. There need to be reinforcements in place so that this does not happen again.
If none of this gets fixed, then the Chiefs can kiss this season goodbye.
It is a sad thing to think about, but if they do not do the things to be successful and win, the Chiefs will no longer be great. That is the reality for great teams. They can’t afford to fail to play up to their competition.
Whatever is going on with the Chiefs’ Defense is not even going to help them win any games, let alone make another run at a Super Bowl title. Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has seen some bright spots this season, such as Week 2 with Tyrann Mathieu, but other than that, it has looked a lot like the 2018 Chiefs Defense of old.
This cannot be how Spagnuolo wants his defense to start this early in the season. I believe he will get this whole situation figured out, but the secondary blows coverage and the run-stoppers are not really stopping anyone at this point.
To say this is not a good look for the Kansas City Chiefs would be harsh to say, but for how high their standards and expectations go, it is. They must pick themselves back up and win the next three games to at least feel good about the rest of this season.
Once the players start believing in each other, and as they start to mesh with the coaches, everything will hopefully turn out all right. Like with all teams, it takes time, and with that time, it takes a will to win, as well as having all the staff care about each other.
