Week 4: Kansas City Chiefs 41, New England Patriots 14 (2-2) (Monday, September 29, 2014)

Stink, stank, stunk!

Dreadful, abysmal, horrific.

That about sums it up! The offense couldn't do anything, the defense was Swiss cheese, and the coaching was stinkeroo. The only guys who could hold up their heads were on special teams. Tom can't get time to throw because his offensive line is awful, plain and simple. He had few receivers to throw to, anyway: Julian Edelman, his binky, and Gronk, who isn't 100% after his ACL injury. The rest of the receivers? Put 'em on a milk carton!

BTW, Tom is awful, too. He's missing receivers the few times they get open. He's shellshocked! He's gotten beaten up an awful lot in the first four games. Uncharacteristic bad decisions, too. :(

This was the worst game we've seen in the Belichick/Brady era. Jeez, I thought games like this would be A.B.: After Brady! Holes everywhere, poor execution, flat-as-pancakes in spirit. It'll be interesting to see if they can fix things in the next month. If it's lack of execution, it's fixable. If it's lack of talent, they're screwed and my first line above will be the usual review. It's a disgrace that this team would field a team of no-talent nobodies around Tom Brady, who is on the back nine of his career.

They might still make the playoffs because the division stinks, but after the first game at home (if they win that), forget it. Good teams will just push 'em around like K.C. did.

NE 2-2
BUFF 2-2
Miami 2-2
NYJ 1-3

Next week, the high-flying Cincinnati Bengals at Foxboro! Yikes!

Frankly I was shocked. I really expected to give up on KC by halftime. I haven't watched the Patriots at all this year but do read your posts and knew there were problems, but this was just...wow. KC is NOT that good but everything seemed to click for us offensively especially to the left (right of the Patriots' D). Our D, playing with back up players, amazed me Monday night.

I do feel for you, believe me. It's hard to love a team that struggles. After many years of the Chiefs struggling (last year being an anomaly as we still weren't good, just playing a soft schedule), I'm hoping we're righting ourselves to get back to the way we were in the 1990s. Hopefully your team can find itself as well (just not against us again please! *g*) Ups and downs are a given in sports, unfortunately.

Ha, believe me, I know bad teams! Before the coming of Brady the Pats did have some good teams but there were a lot of bad ones. And before 2004 I figured I'd live a whole lifetime before ever seeing the Red Sox win a World Series! :)

The Pats are just TERRIBLE. If it's lack of talent, they're screwed. You can only coach up minimal talent so far. Poor Tom! He doesn't need this crap at age 37 while Peyton Manning sails along in Denver with talented receivers, running backs, tight ends, and O-Line.

Enjoy your victory. I would. :) Just keep in mind that it was a bit of fool's gold as the Pats were just that bad. Hopefully the Chiefs will continue to do well but don't go by that game! :)

Congrats on the Royals dispatching the A's! Good luck in the playoffs! Definitely rooting for your team as the Sox completely collapsed this year after their World Series victory last year. *rolls eyes*

I know nothing about football except the shape of the ball, but ouch... that score is not pretty. I hope your team can turn it around!

Oh, my boys! It could be a long season. *sighs*
