Default Chiefs and Bolts fans hoping for losses

I checked out chiefs planet for grins this morning- fans of both teams are hoping for a loss and subsequent firing of head coach/GM. Some funny stuff...

Unfortunately for them one team has to win

Chargers should take this one easily
I mean we all know the Chargers are struggling, but KC right now is on a historic level of suck

No different than people here wanting us to lose because they hated McDaniels.

My preference is for the Chiefs to win so it weakens the Chargers and hurts the Chiefs draft position.

That said, what a crappy time for the AFC West. Of the other three members of our division, the Raiders have the most cause for optimism.

I hated mCd with a passion but never wanted the team to lose in order to fire him. I watched all those painful games, it was a joyless time, very frustrating and humiliating.

I don't see how anyone in a right mind could root for their own team to lose just to get a coach fired or a better draft pick.

High draft picks are not always sure fire picks, look at what teams like the Bungles, Bears, Cleveland have gone through in the past with their 1st overall picks. It is more important to have good scouting and a good GM than the 1st overall pick.

Texas Longhorn fans are doing the same thing.

I agree completely! In my mind as long as Manning doesn't go down I honestly don't think any other AFCW team has a chance to catch us. We spotted them all 2 games with Houston and NE now we will pull away from them all.

I remember Steeldude telling us he can't wait for the Broncos to lose so he can be proven right about McDaniels but I think for most, it was expecting them to lose then to actually want the Broncos to lose. We earned that #2 pick based on no wishes but a ****ty coach with a lot of bad players.

Chargers wanting their team to lose this early shows them for what they are, weak! Their team is actually on of the wild card teams if the season ended today. Either they don't realize this or they are just way done with the coach and GM. If they had a good wide receiver, they would actually win a few games more.

Im enjoying the suckage in the AFCW. While McDaniels was here, those fans in the rest of the division made it a point to laugh and make fun of Bronco fans because our team sucked.

The joke's on those ****ers now.

As a football fan I actually prefer it when the Raiders are good. It makes for much more interesting viewing.

Actually, Raiders became the Faiders when they would sprint to a great start, fans thump their chest like they are going to the SB again and then go 2-6 to end the season and miss the playoffs. We experienced that with Cutler and Shanny for our team.

100% agree. Although, I will admit, watching Broncos Football during the 2010 season felt more like a chore or punishment at times. I never rooted for my team to lose, but there were times were I couldn't muster the hope of winning.

I know is almost heresy to agree with this sentiment, but I feel you. In fact, I may go one farther into the dark abyss and admit I kind of miss it when Denver, KC, and Oakland were all solid teams that would have a decent chance of taking the division. Back in the early 00's it was considered the best three way rivalry in football. I kind of miss the AFCW being considered the strongest division in the NFL.

Screw that. I want us to finish 12-4 and the rest of them to finish with four or five wins; Enough to be terrible, but just good enough to keep a franchise QB away from them.

exactly! How great would it be to just point and laugh at all three fanbases that their teams suck and we rule the division? I dont need parity. I need kick ass, take no prisoners type of wins.
If those fanbases are crying and wearing bags over their heads then we are doing it correctly.

I want a Chiefs win. Gives them a worse draft pick and keeps the Chargers in a hole.

I think his job is safe for one more week.

SD will win the turnover differential and thus the game.

I'll be rooting HARD for the Chiefs tonight. I really don't want them to get a QB.

What games can KC win now?

The only winnable game I see is Cleveland. That's it.
