This one was well deserved. 6-0 in the division, 11 straight division wins, we damn well should be division champions. Ninth division championship, but we are way behind the others, the Broncos, Chargers, and Raiders have 15 each.
This one takes me back to the division title we won in 2010. We were playing the Oakland Raiders in the final game and got beat 31-10 or something like that. The Raiders were 8-8, but went 6-0 in the division becoming the first team to sweep their division, but not be division champs. I was working security in the locker room at Arrowhead and one of my jobs was to escort the coaches up and down the elevators from locker room to press box and vice versa. I had to escort Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson down from the coaches box to the locker room after the game. All the way down in the elevator, Jackson kept repeating, 'Chiefs are a bunch of phonies' over and over and right before the elevator doors opened, he said, 'and they're going to the playoffs and we're not'.
Before the game yesterday I just kept thinking about that, not wanting to be that team that wins every division game and not the division. All things turned out right for us though, the football Gods sorted this one out perfectly. Congrats to my team for another championship flag to fly, and good luck in the tourney.
