The Kansas City Chiefs: a “House of Cards”?

What happened to my beloved Kansas City Chiefs? Where did the valiant, spunky, comeback-kid warriors go? I love this team–but wow, they make it tough.
The Chiefs are like a girlfriend who forgot you had a date when you knock on her door. You never know if she’ll be dressed and ready to go or wearing sweats and crashed on the couch eating Bugles and binge-watching House of Cards. “Oh, we have a date tonight? Give me five minutes to put my (game) face on!”
I’m going to stop shy of a rant here…but I have some questions:
- How do you have an elite running back, a championship-calibre coach, the 4th or 5th best QB (statistically) in the league, a top 5 defense–and still manage to lose no-brainer games?
- Why is the team’s urge to win only evident in the fourth quarter?
- How is it the team that HUMILIATED the legendary Patriots on Monday Night Football, defeated the defending world champion Seahawks and nearly beat the Broncos in their first matchup…squandered everything on a loss to the biggest dumpster fire team in the league (Raiders) and act like they don’t give a crap against the Broncos last night when EVERYTHING was on the line?
Final questions: Why do I care? Why should I?
Never mind our date, Chiefs. Go go ahead and binge-watch House of Cards*. I’ve already seen it.
*P.S. My friend John reminded me that next week the Chiefs go to the ACTUAL “House of Cards” in Arizona to play the Cardinals. Ha.
