    We really need SP back, in a bad way. Will be big to have Floyd and Mathews back. Time to gut out a win.

    I predict that this game will be the marker that we all look back on at the end of the season.

    If we win, it will kick-start our season and we should push through all the road-blocks and slip into playoff contention (if any one game could make this kind impression its against the Raiders @ home.

    If we lose...Its season over IMO

    On today's postgame, Norv said that SP right now couldn't play but the decision will have to be made later in the week.

    Raiders take this. Watch us play up to the level of the Raiders and lose again. Commitment to mediocrity continues.

    Too bad you haven't been around long enough to know this cats history, but for whatever reason he has to say polite things as opposed to talking trash, i'm all for it.

    You mean like last year, when a bunch of people talked **** to him all season about how the Chiefs were crap, then the Chiefs won the division and he was able to gloat and all those shittalkers on the forum got butthurt?

    We "should" win this, so we probably won't. I expect the Raiders to come in to intimidate and push the Chargers around. Won't be surprised with either a W or a L.

    It's definitely the remaining catalyst game. I agree 100% with you.

    The sting of last nights game is far less than the KC game. So moving on to Thursday.

    Lets get on an 8 game roll and fix some of these complaints.

    Eventually all the fans will be so worn down by the failures of this team we won't even care when they lose.

    EVERY LOSS STINGS

    Why? The fact that you're "sad" is another YOU problem, you can stop with your little pitty party for me, because I know it's disingenuous and you are simply trying to mock me again. What a surprise.

    Look, I'm not an enabler. I'm not going to sit here and pretend everything is OK when it's not, that some losses are better or worse than others. THEY ARE ALL BAD. This team isn't going to just flip a switch and suddenly beat everyone, especially when they can't even find that switch without tripping all over themselves and making dumb mistakes. It's called accepting reality, and the reality is that this team is not very good.

    I will be MORE THAN HAPPY to eat my words if the team decides to rip off an 11 game win streak right about now, but I just do not see it happening. I'll cook the crow myself and gladly eat it.

    I am sorry you feel that way. Not joking not mocking, I am sorry you are there mentally.

    I am sad to see someone who has been to all the events, been 'positive vibes man' etc get where you are now. That is not an attempt to insult you, that is honesty. Believe it or not, I cant convince you and with the level of distrust/hate that has built up between us I doubt I could.

    So enjoy the rest of the season as best you can. I wish you well.

    I could believe it. I predicted we would lose (though not THAT badly).

    I think what it shows is the continued arrogance of Todd Haley, who somehow thinks that his "fitness programs" are more important than actual FOOTBALL practice. The Chiefs practiced for TWO days last week and one of those was a walkthrough.

    In the NFL, unless you are by far and away the better team (which rarely happens) you cannot get away with that.

    The Dolphins, stat-wise are comparable to...all of the AFC West teams. They aren't nearly as bad as their record. Conversely, the Chiefs are likely not as good as their record.

    All of this set up for a major disappointment on Sunday.

    I'd say we played down to our competition, but I am afraid we didn't. I think we simply didn't prepare and were not nearly skilled enough to compete without a huge effort during the week.

    That being said, I think we rebound against the Donkeys, but...after that...it's gonna be rough.

    Thanks man, though I will say, sometimes it's easier to be a casual fan than a die hard fan...you aren't quite as emotionally invested and thus, don't get quite so angry or hurt when they lose...and therefore, don't often make melodramatic posts about how the team is "the worst ever." I don't blame people for that, as we are all prone to hyperbole in moments of duress or elation.

    For a long time, I used to put down the Chiefs and berate them constantly. I realize now that I did so because openly believing in them and ultimately being proved wrong hurt too bad. I thought that lowering expectations would help...but I found out...it really doesn't numb the sting of loss any at all (because in my heart I am still a die hard FAN of that team). The only thing it ever did was take away from the moments of success and enjoyment we could have along the journey.

    As much as we like to say it's all about championships...it's not.

    It's VERY unlikely that either the Chargers or the Chiefs will win a Superbowl this Year. That doesn't matter. What matters is, we have as much fun as we can on the ride, and for most of us that means, playing in meaningful competitive games for as long as possible.

    It's gonna be hilarious to watch all these "RIVER IS THE WORST QB EVER" posters eat **** when he breaks out of his slump.

    It's also the fourth three-game losing streak under Norv Turner. After first three, closed the season: 10-2, 4-0, 7-2.

    A Rivers' slump is a career year for some teams' starting quarterbacks.

    It's all about perspective.
