It's sorta a win/win for many of us. Good draft pick balanced with a good story.
A chiefs team destined at best to go 8-8 or 9-7 would probably not even get 8 wins. Realistically I had them at 10-6, maybe 11-5 before season began.
Their pace looks to be maybe 12-13 games but that's no guarantee that will happen but could happen.
Unless I'm missing something , the chiefs going 14-2, 15-1 or deep in playoffs is still better than finishing a 7-9 team for the 49ers 2014 draft.
My guess was 8 or 9 wins, so it looks like I will loose! No big deal but I like your post and agree with your point of view...a second is better than a third so all is good. I really think the Chiefs will lose a number of games but would not be sad if they didn't.
As for liking the Chiefs and their QB...what's not to like? I love the WCO and their QB and hope he succeeds in leading the team to the playoffs--it may encourage more teams to use this offense. Just more fun for me to watch precise, well executed plays than the old heave ho of a Romo or a Cutler...a preference, no right or wrong about it.
