NFL ACTION… PARITY AT IT’S BEST
I will preface this article by saying that I’m a Kansas City Chief fan. With that said, how the heck to the Green Bay Packers lose to the Chiefs? 13-1 Packers against 6-8 Chiefs? Packers with pretty much all their starters against the Chiefs with a quarterback that just joined the team 2 weeks ago? I don’t understand. The Packers have been destroying most teams every week. They had gone through the tough part of their schedule and had one away game left on their schedule, at Arrowhead. Trap game? Not sure if you can call it that. I can call it playing down to the level of your competition. A lot of dropped balls by the WR corp. Having watched sports for many, many moons, I’ve learned that no matter who you are playing, if you enter the 4th quarter with a close game when you should be up by a lot, all bets are off. Pride kicks in? Ask the Trojans a few years ago when the Bruins ruined their National title hopes. This was going to be a perfect season for the Packers, capped off by a Superbowl victory. Hasn’t been done since those wretched Dolphins. Now we have to hear about how Mercury Morris and his cronies popped a bottle of champagne. Tom Brady and his bunch could’ve done it a few years ago but Eli and company took him down. Great win for the Chiefs though. Not sure why they can’t play like this every week? The problem with this win is that it will probably get interim coach Romeo Cronell the job, which is not what the Chiefs need. Oh well, it is nice to play spoiler though.
