Now look, I was going to let this whole “nobody believed in us” thing pass because I chalked it up to the “heat of the moment” following the Super Bowl — but it’s got the stop. Since the final whistle of Super Bowl LVII, the Kansas City Chiefs have been gaslighting everyone.
It started with Travis Kelce ranting about “us against the world,” and the “haters,” and now this weird myth keeps getting more steam that nobody but Chiefs fans and players believed Kansas City could win this season.

This seriously feels like I’m taking crazy pills. Nobody either said the Chiefs were “done,” nor did anyone say this team was rebuilding. Sure, there may have been some questions about how the offense would retool without Tyreek Hill, and whether JuJu Smith-Schuster could be a close enough approximation on the outside to keep things rolling — but again, nobody of note said this team was “done.”
