What's Wrong Here?

5-1 Denver
3-3 San Diego
2-4 Oakland
1-4 Kansas City

I'm at a loss.

This year was supposed to be our shining shot at the Super Bowl. Now, we are just wondering if we are ever going to win another game. A .500 record would be decent after the start we've had and the schedule we have ahead of us. If you consider that now 4-2 Jacksonville was supposed to be the easy part, it may be a particularly long season.

That's not to say I'm going to give up hope just yet. 12-4 would be a good record, but we would have to win out against some extrememly formidable opponents. I just don't see it happening. Maybe 10-6 is more reachable. That still would mean us going 9-2 the rest of the way.

Possible? Sure, anything's possible.
Probable? Not so much.

What's so difficult is how we have lost our games. It's not just one thing. The overall effort seems flawed. Sure, our defense stinks to high heaven and Dexter McLeon is about as effective a corner as I am, but the offense that has led the league the last 2 years in total offense has been ineffective at times when it is most needed.

Yes, it has been a tough year for Kansas City sports teams. The Royals disappointed us. The Chiefs have been less-than-stellar. Who are we to root for?

At least college basketball season starts soon. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWK!

So, never having been to Kansas or cared about college sports, I had no idea WTF that cheer was all about. So... when in doubt, Google it, right? http://www.rockchalk.com/john/john/rock.html
is what I came up with and now I might be smarter because of it. I can't believe that it was chanted to the King of Belgium in 1920. How proud you must be to be a Kansanite (what are you in Kansas, anyhow, or should I be asking John Kerry?)

Nate-

Came across your blog tonight. Good stuff. Sweet design.

Noticed you were a college basketball fan (and wish your Jayhawks the best of luck). Hoping you could add a Blogroll link to my College Basketball Blog, http://collegeball.blogspot.com. I'd very much appreciate a link on your site.

And would gladly return the favor, adding a link from my site to yours.

Thanks!
