Anybody acting like it's not a big deal if this team doesn't get the 1 seed (and especially if KC does) is just coping.  It would be a complete regular season failure. 

 

I get we have sustained a ton of injuries, but this team is built to get the 1 seed.  The beauty of what Beane has built is in both it's high end players AND depth.  Most teams have one or the other.  That depth is supposed to carry us in the regular season, and then Allen, Diggs, Von etc take over in the Playoffs. 

 

Considering that since the season opener we’ve had multiple starters miss each game, along multiple starters playing with fairly serious injuries; I’d say the depth on this team had been tremendously good. We’re 6-3.  Yeah, should be better, but with all the injuries each week this is the type of season you see alot of teams 4-5 at this point.

Did you expect the Chiefs to lose to the Colts earlier this year?

 

Did you expect the Bills to lose to the Jets and Vikings?

 

Assuming that the Chiefs will lose zero to 1 more games is as stupid as assuming the Bills will need to win out to get the #1 seed. Nobody knows what's going to happen. If Mahomes goes down, do we still have this conversation? What about Kelce?

We are gonna have to win out for the 1 seed more than likely and the Chiefs will have to lose at least once. Where would you see a loss in their next 8 games? Cincy? They seem to maybe be the Chiefs kryptonite. Seattle? Just curious on everyone's thoughts. Even one more loss for us and you can kiss the one seed goodbye for the year. The Chiefs could lose twice but I don't see it

I really only see at Bengals as a possibility. 

 

Bengals beat them twice last year and will have Ja'Marr Chase back. 

 

That's it.

Sure, injuries change the equation, but Mahomes/Chiefs don't have a history of being erratic.  Allen/Bills do.  

 

If they were chasing us, they'd likely bank on us dropping a game or two.  

 

I can't say, aside from injury, that I feel the same about them.  Would love to be proven wrong though.

I'm not assuming anything. But come on, the Chiefs are very rarely off their game. It is possible they lose 2 but I just don't think it's likely and yes, because we lost to the Vikings, we will "more than likely" have to win out which were my exact words. I didn't say they absolutely had to

Pegula isn't spending league leading cash over cap to constantly trot out a 3 seed because this team can't figure out how to win games in the middle of the season. 

 

 

 

It's hard to have enough depth when the entire starting secondary is out and multiple other players on D.  At some point, too much becomes too much.

They are off their game more than a lot of people realize.  They seem to always do just enough in those games to win tho, like the Titans game for example.

Got it ... so, last year when the Chiefs started the season beating the Browns by 4, then losing to the Ravens, then losing to the Chargers, then beating the Eagles by 12, then losing to the Bills, then beating the Commanders, then losing to the Titans 27-3, that wasn't erratic....

 

Is it possible that all good teams have bad games?

Did they get their act together and finish ahead of us?  What about the year prior?  Where are they currently in the standings right now?

Arguable, and it was recently shown that Mahomes makes just as many bad decisions/plays as Josh, but gets a much longer leash and bigger leeway since he has been hyped since Day 1, and Josh started as an underdog project who everyone bet against.

 

When Josh makes an erratic play, he's Sugar Josh. When Mahomes does it, he's just a sly fox who made a mistake.

 

The narratives on these two are so different, but the performances are fairly close.

Hate to say it, but our chances at the #1 seed are probably gone at this point.

Kansas City will probably lose another game.  But then again, so will the Bills.  And I still wouldn't count out teams like the Titans, Ravens or Dolphins.

 

Winning the AFC East is going to be a real challenge.
