Now for a TIME OUT: I really didn’t want to talk Kansas City Chiefs, but can’t help myself.
I hope that Coach Andy Reid is as embarrassed as I am about the way yesterday’s game finished in the Meadowlands.The undisciplined antics of the defense handed the game over to New York Jets 38-31.
The Kansas City Chiefs have now lost four in a row, and six of their last seven games.
Their three-game lead in the AFC West is gone. Now last week, I said maybe it’s time to sit Alex Smith.
I’ll be the first to admit that I was wrong about that, but the defense has slipped to pre-Andy Reid levels of stupidity.
Penalty after penalty, the New York Jets had 11 cracks at scoring the go-ahead touchdown from inside the Chiefs 10-yard line. 11 times, that’s inexcusable.
Penalties by Benny Logan, Steve Nelson and Marcus Peters kept that drive alive and cost the Chiefs the game and possibly the playoffs.
I thought that Andy Reid’s coaching had cured the Chiefs of this self-destruction, I guess I was wrong.
What do you think about the Chiefs and their inept play on Sunday?
