A Little KC Media Spin
CHIEFS TRY TO MAKE CHICKEN SALAD
"The Chiefs, a playoff team in 2006, were flat-out embarrassed by the Texans, a perennial loser. So what should the team's P.R. department talk about in the post-game notes released to the media?
Apparently, something other than the final score."
The notes lead off with this boast: "KC's defense did not permit any offensive points in the first quarter, marking the eighth time in 17 regular season games under Herm Edwards the club has accomplished that feat."
Unfortunately, NFL games continue to be four quarters in length.
Hey, we realize that the P.R. staff of any franchise needs to put out something that reflects well on the team, even after a loss. But bragging about allowing no points in the first quarter where 20 were scored by Houston in the next three -- and only three were scored by the Chiefs in all four -- seems to be a little petty to us.
