I told you folks Waaaaaaaay back there. Maybe like 2014. Maybe like this.
IMO, Andy just showed you why. What good is making the playoffs every season if that is the kind of game management he is capable of when the spam hits the fan? It makes all the rest of it an exercise in futility. No amount of good coaching, good game planning and 'players coach' mentallity will make up for freezing in the headlights. It's not like we are dealing with a newly anointed HC here people. Reid in all his Red Walrus Glory has done this before--fourteen years worth to be exact. Reid has done it enough to be pegged for what he is. He's not going to change. He's done it enough to show he isn't getting better. He's done it enough. Period.
Are you tired enough of it yet Chiefs fans? Tired enough to join me in calling for Reid's head? Tired enough to expose Alex for the game manager QB that he is rather than acting like he is a franchise QB that Reid magically found hiding behind a giant mushroom in the forest??
I told you and I told you and I told you. Even today we have people making excuses for these pretenders. Clark likes butts in seats 'cause he makes money. YOUR money. Here are a few comments I saw an article on NFL.com today discussing the fact that Reid laments not running Hunt more in yesterdays game.
" 5 Years ago Chiefs fans were telling Philly fans they knew more about the guy who had coached here for 14 years and he was a great coach who would win them SBs. Same mistakes, same flaws for 19 years. Nice guy, just not a good coach."
" Counting the 2008 season, Reid is 3-7 in playoff games...but 93-65 in the regular season. Winning during the regular season is great, but if you fizzle in the playoffs, what is the point? Its why the Eagles let him walk"
" This is Andy Reid every year. Saw it in Philly with McCoy, Staley, and Westbrook all the time. Nothing different in KC."
These folks are singing to the Choir here at Chiefs Drumbeat. So far, I have pretty accurately predicted the path that the Chiefs have followed by putting Andy Reid in the drivers seat in KC. I even gave the time frame of 3-5 years which we have now met and are rolling toward exceeding.
All that is left is Chiefs nation waking up and pulling the plug on this farce. I sure wish I could give a shit about it, but having had to endure this offense after all that has come before has given me a really bad taste in my mouth for the Chiefs. I don't know. Maybe if I can see Clark make some changes that tell me he cares more about winning than $$$ I can change my mind, but for now I find NO redemption in being so terribly right about what was happening.
See ya 'round Chiefs fans. I hope for better things for the future.
