Worse: Kansas City or St. Louis?
Clearly the Rams and Chiefs have emerged as the doormats in their respective conferences and liquor sales have subsequently risen in the state of Missouri. The Rams and Chiefs are so bad, Mizzou could probably put up a decent fight against either one.
Kansas City has lost by two touchdowns or more to both Oakland and Atlanta, who will both struggle to win six games. The Chiefs are starting Tyler Thigpen at quarterback. Tyler Thigpen. Who the fuck is Tyler Thigpen?! Larry Johnson isn't what he used to be and Tony Gonzalez is more occupied with his hot-as-fuck girl than he is catching passes (see: Tyler Fucking Thigpen).
St. Louis' results are worse. The Rams have played what are likely three playoff teams (Giants, Eagles, Seahawks), sure, but haven't gotten closer than 24 points. What's disturbing is that St. Louis still has what seems like good talent at the skill positions. Marc Bulger is two years removed form throwing for 4,300 yards with a 24-8 TD-INT ratio. Torry Holt is a Hall of Famer. And Steven Jackson has run for over 1,000 yards the last three seasons. The defense though. Eeesh.
We see Kansas City's first win coming Nov. 30 at Oakland. If the Chiefs can't beat the Raiders, they'll try to avoid a winless season with a Week 15 home date against Miami or a Week 16 trip to Cincy. St. Louis, which has a far easier schedule in the weak NFC West, has a winnable game Nov. 2 at home vs. Arizona.
So. Worse team?
