Suck For Luck Campaign 2012

For those of you who don't know, the Suck for Luck campaign 2012 is a competition in the NFL to be the worst team in the league in the 2011 season (thus "suck") in order to get the number 1 draft position for the 2012 season and potentially draft Stanford University super star quarterback Andrew Luck (thus "luck"). So basically, many fans of teams in the NFL who are struggling are hoping to just lose ALL of their games for the rest of this season in order to get the number 1 draft pick in 2012. The main reason for this is because the fans of the losing NFL teams believe that all of their problems will be solved by getting a new quarterback, mainly Andrew Luck.

There are a few reasons that the Suck for Luck campaign has emerged -
most teams in the NFL who are "sucking" right now are probably blaming their quarterback. The quarterback position has the biggest magnifying glass on it, and fans are quick to put the blame on the quarterback when their team loses. The quarterback's mistakes are the easiest to spot, especially for fans who don't know the ins and outs of the game. If you know a little bit about football, then you understand a few of the other issues that can make the quarterback look bad, like the offensive line, for instance. If the offensive line isn't doing it's job, the quarterback is not being protected, has to scramble around, and basically has a hard time getting into a rhythm. The Suck for Luck campaign has emerged as a result of frustrated fans who are unhappy with their team and truly believe that all of their problems will be solved if they draft Andrew Luck and replace their current quarterback.

Many Kansas City Chiefs fans have signed on to the Suck for Luck campaign and in an interview today 810 sports asked quarterback Matt Cassel if he had heard of the campaign to which he replied that "this is the first I have heard of it" - which may or may not be the truth. As it stands, the Suck for Luck campaign stands as follows:

Minnesota Vikings - Record = 0-4
Miami Dolphins - Record = 0-4
St. Louis Rams - Record = 0-4
Indianapolis Colts - Record = 0-3

Stay tuned for more Suck for Luck news!

Chiefs Vikings 2011 Kansas City News

We hate to say it, but this game might actually be a win for the Kansas City Chiefs vs the Minnesota Vikings, who suck almost as bad as the Chiefs. Now remember, we do not WANT to win due to the ongoing "Suck for Luck" campaign in which we must LOSE every possible game this season in order to acquire super star quarterback Andrew Luck in the 2012 draft for next season. It is imperative that we lose as many games as possible this season, and just focus on next season, there is no way that we are going to be a playoff (or regular season) competitor this year with Jamaal Charles and Eric Barry missing. Let's not kid ourselves and just throw the rest of the games this year.

810 sports radio has been heard arguing this case by saying that "they won't blow the rest of the season because staff members, players and coaches will risk losing their jobs". That is an ignorant statement - here's why: EVERYONE sits down and agrees that losing the remaining games this year is in the Chiefs best interest and no one will lose their job based ONLY upon the team's record for the 2011 season. Now, with that said, if someone on the Chiefs payroll was going to be losing their job after this season ANYWAY, then so be it. But the team would need to sit down and actually agree not to fire anyone based upon this season's record. That, my friends, is the solution.

We are kidding ourselves if we think that Matt Cassel is EVER going to be the right guy for us at quarterback. The only way that would be possible is if we were to build the BEST defense in the NFL, then you might get a team that resemble the Baltimore Ravens 2000 Super Bowl winning team behind mediocre quarterback Trent Dilfer. We would need the best defense in the NFL to propel us to a Super Bowl win behind Matt Cassel.

In other news, Jared Allen, our former defensive lineman who now wears a Minnesota Vikings jersey, has requested that the fans at Arrowhead Stadium please not "boo" him this Sunday.

Chiefs Chargers 2011 Kansas City News

The Chiefs Chargers rivalry continues today at 3:05pm when the banged up and limping Chiefs take on the San Diego Chargers in their home town. The Chiefs are playing with a skeleton crew after losing star running back Jamaal Charles, tight end Tony Moeaki and starting strong safety Eric Barry. With those players missing from the Kansas City Chiefs lineup, it doesn't leave much left on the field. Matt Cassel is an average quarterback at best, and although Dwayne Bowe, Steve Breaston and Jonathan Baldwin might be talented receivers, it doesn't matter if the quarterback can't get them the ball. Cassel made a few feeble attempts to throw the ball down the field last week vs the Lions, but Cassel's long pass attempts looked wobbly and weak and the receivers had to halt their route and turn around and come back to the floppy passes to try to make a catch. This is not the type of quarterback that you need to win games. Your team's quarterback should be able to throw the ball far down the field with zip and confidence or the opposing defenses will never respect the quarterback's arm and will be able to stack up against the run. It's that simple. As poorly as Cassel throws the ball, Jamaal Charles wouldn't have stood much of a chance anyway as defenses would have been keying on him heavily.

The Chargers are also a little banged up, with Antonio Gates injured and on the sideline for this match. Look for Vincent Jackson to make some big plays behind the arm of Philip Rivers, and possibly some rushing yards from 2nd year running back Ryan Matthews.

As always with Kansas City Chiefs football games, if the Chiefs can somehow get into the end zone first, they stand a better chance to stay in this game. But with the incredible passing skills of Philip Rivers, the Chiefs really don't stand a chance. The Chiefs continue to build towards the "Suck for Luck" losing campaign. If the Chiefs can manage to lose all of their games this year, they will get the first pick of the 2012 draft and have a shot at getting a real quarterback in Andrew Luck. Let's hope that happens as we need to get rid of Matt Cassel immediately.
