KC Chiefs 2016 Season PreviewAugust 15, 2016
Guys, it’s about that time again. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, I’m not talking about the holidays. I’m talking about football season! This past Saturday, our Chiefs took the gridiron for the first time in nearly 7 months (210 days to be exact). That is way too long for an avid football fan. Your days of re-watching last season’s highlights are over because the Chiefs are back and we are hungrier than ever. Despite our disappointing playoff loss last year, we had a good run and it was a good year for us Chiefs fans. But get ready… I have a feeling this year will be even better. That’s right, we could go all the way in 2016! We have most of last year’s team coming back, a strong defense, a more experienced Alex Smith, and an AFC West ready for the taking. Yes, our rivals over in Denver may have won the Super Bowl, but they lost something even more valuable: Peyton Manning. Then you have the Raiders and Chargers who are more concerned with relocating than winning. It’s an exciting time to be a Chiefs fan because we’re taking over our division, and we will make a strong push to represent the AFC in Houston for Super Bowl LI. The NFL Preseason is the perfect time to make any last-minute adjustments while also giving the young talent a chance to shine. It’s also a great chance for those who aren’t big into football to get acquainted with our team and prepare to lose their voices at Arrowhead Stadium. For those of us who already love this team, I can’t stress how important you are to our success. Go put on your Jamaal Charles jersey, turn on your TVs, and keep supporting our Chiefs. We the fans have a big impact on the team. We stick with them through the good and the bad, and there’s a lot of good ahead. Let’s show the league why Kansas City has the greatest fanbase in all of sports! GO, CHIEFS!!!
