What was supposed to be a RED FRIDAY felt more like an ORANGE one with local radio treating Manning like a rockstar in Kansas City.
No Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles, or Dwayne Bowe… it was all Peyton Manning and his awesomeness.
Because of the Denver Broncos trouncing of the “toothless” Baltimore Ravens at INVESCO Field at Mile High we now know…
- If all the superheroes had a race who would win? Peyton Manning.
- At the end of the universe, there is only Peyton Manning.
- Peyton Manning wasn’t born on his birthday.
- The only thing Peyton Manning doesn’t know is his true potential.
- And… don’t bother Chiefs; it all belongs to Peyton Manning.
Just two teams played Thursday, but news spreaders said it was already over. Here John Dorsey, take your second place trophy. Seriously John, it’s been decided.
By who? By the media and the incredible Peyton Manning. Oops, I must bow.
OK, time for a shower.
Thursday night’s dismantling of the Ravens was talked about like a vise; crushing any hopes the Chiefs had at accomplishing something this season.
Most Chiefs’ fans had already picked Denver to win, I didn’t want them to, but knew better. After Thursday night Kansas City talk radio concluded that Denver is the BEST team in the AFC and in the AFC West.
Wait… there’s more.
The radio also preached that the Chiefs didn’t have the ability, skill-set, or soldiers to measure up to the Denver Broncos.
Not me, but what I heard. So, Mr. Dorsey… you too Andy Reid, come get your 4th tier/second place AFC West t-shirt.
The list of rebuttals continued on our Chief Concerns Facebook Page.
The ones that don’t agree have been named “Homers” by local radio jocks, not all fans agree that the Chiefs are just working for a Wild Card spot.
Homer: A sports fan who picks his/her team to win, despite objective evidence to the contrary.
Homers expect more; oh… they call themselves fans.
Silly Chiefs! The division, AFC crown, and Super Bowl is for the elite, not you!
What confirmation did I get Thursday?
Not taking anything away from Denver, they put on a show Thursday, it was real football. The Broncos 510 total yards were real, not denying that, but run for cover? Give up on all the positive happenings at One Arrowhead Drive?
Everything fans have heard reported about the new players and coaching staff is really happening too.
That’s not made up. Do fans just drop that fresh faith because Denver had a big win?
The “seen” part will happen Sunday, that’s coming, but just quit on the dream?
Of course not! What Denver did to Baltimore has nothing to do with what the Chiefs can do this season.
The ones paying extra attention to Manning are losing sight of the good stuff happening in Kansas City. If it was Manning tearing down the New England Patriots I’d be shaking a bit, but Baltimore? Like I said, this seasons Ravens are a shell from last season.
The critics assume the Ravens are elite too (I know, they won a Super Bowl, but that was truly an inspired more talented team), that the Broncs beat a REALLY good football team. They played a team with a really expensive quarterback with less help, that’s what they played. And in Denver, which is always an advantage.
The Ravens made stupid mistakes, played sloppy, and looked lost. Their leadership is lacking on the field. It showed.
I can’t prove it, fans not conceding anything to Denver can’t say 100 percent yet, but they just feel Kansas City will put up a bigger fight than what the NFL saw Thursday.
The Chiefs haven’t won it all like the Ravens, gotten old, or to the point to take things for granted. They’re hungry; when you’re starving you tend to be unpredictable.
The Broncos can’t write the Chiefs off.
So no, I’m not buying out, I won’t say there’s no way that the Chiefs can win the division. The NFL is full of random happenings, unexpected events, and strange twists.
It ain’t over till it’s over… and this 2013 just got started.
Good day, Chiefs fans!
