It is not “Victory Sunday.” There is nothing to celebrate. You won’t be watching the Buffalo Bills-Jacksonville Jaguars game wondering where the Chiefs are headed next week The season is over, and it is heartbreaking—I’d argue the most heartbreaking loss since 2013, when the Chiefs transformed from a perennial joke to a team you could count on to make the playoffs Before Saturday’s game, I tweeted about how we really do not know the futures of several players that have been so important to this franchise during that five-year span, and even some, well before Dustin Colquitt and Albert Wilson are unrestricted free agentsAlex Smith will probably be tradedDerrick Johnson and Tamba Hali, the 2005 and 2006 first-rounders who never showed their age, this season finally did And there are more players on this list, and with general manager Brett Veach’s first full offseason upcoming, the moves involving them become all the more difficult to predict. What is sad about it all is that this team, this group, the guys that made you feel good about football in Kansas City again, they deserved better, and many of them will leave with nothing to show for it. “The tough part about this obviously is that it’s final and the season ends up being over, you’re never the same team,” Andy Reid said in his opening statement after the game“That’s just how this thing works, but the guys coming back, we’ll make sure we feel this and then change itBut we have to wait awhile to do thatThat’s the problem with games like this.” What is Murphy’s law again? Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. That was Saturday night for the Chiefs. 10 years from now, the things you’ll remember are Travis Kelce’s concussion and Marcus Mariota’s self-pass (the first one since 1997)You’ll remember the questionable forward progress calls in a contest already being referred to as the “Forward Progress Game” by local influencers. The Chiefs had an 18-point lead at halftime and they fell into quicksandThe offensive gameplan was thwarted by Kelce’s departure and the run defense reverted back to midseason form. And in a flash, this version of the Chiefs gave away its last shot at any kind of Kansas City folklore. Looking back, Alex Smith will be spoken about in the same manner as Trent Green—a good quarterback who made the Chiefs competitive. And that is not necessarily a bad thingBut it isn’t Len DawsonIt isn’t George Brett or Eric Hosmer In sports, there is a lot of real estate to become great, but to become legendary, you must win championships. What makes me somber about Saturday night is that this group was good enough to do thatSmith was good enough, and Hali and Johnson deserved to ride into the sunset on top after all they have done for this team and city the past decade But they won’tAnd to me, that is the saddest of all. And now, five items of note 1Former Chief and SB Nation’s own Geoff Schwartz was baffled by the Derrick Johnson forward progress call, too. I’m still in awe this was ruled “forward progress stopped”I don’t think enough is being made about how ridiculous this call wasThe Chiefs lost for many reasons besides this, but this is absurd— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) January 7, 2018 Andy Reid refused to comment on the calls, saying that the referees are protectedThe ref said he was right and then retiredNo, seriously. Derrick Johnson was not happy: “Yeah, I don’t know how you can call a guy down or blow the whistle when he didn’t hit the ground yet, especially on a sack.” 2This article is all about how the group (of players) won’t be together againWell, here is your unfriendly reminder that that may include coaches.

Home?” Peters after this scene: Smh— Marcus Peters (@marcuspeters) January 7, 2018 Peters is probably the most polarizing Chiefs player, but one thing I love about him is he is 100 percent himself all the timeThis was another example. 4This stat is not for the faint of heart 3 teams have overcome an 18-point halftime deficit to win a postseason game in the Super Bowl Era:Patriots in Super Bowl LI vs Falcons (trailed by 18)Colts in 2013 Wild Card vs Chiefs (trailed by 21)Bills in 1992 Wild Card vs Oilers (trailed by 25)#TENvsKC— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) January 7, 2018 The Chiefs now own two of the four worst postseason losses in history 5Postgame quotes of the week 10CHIEFS RB KAREEM HUNTWould you agree that the offense took their foot off the pedal? “Yup.” 9TITANS HC MIKE MULARKEYOn whether the rumors he was coaching for his job affected him: “Yeah, I don’t think it is fair to my familySo when it has an effect on my family, it has an effect on meSo yeah, I would say it had a big effect on me.” 8TITANS WR COREY DAVISYou’ve been in a lot of close games this yearHow confident were you that you could come back and win this? “No one in this locker room was worriedThere was no panic in anyone’s faceWe were all confidentWe all knew we had a job to do and we all did it.” 7TITANS HC MIKE MULARKEYHow much changed when Travis Kelce came out of the game? “Well he is a good playerHe is a player that can change the game so I am sure that changed some things on their sideWe took out double Kelce coveragesHe is a big time player for them so that certainly did not help them.” 6CHIEFS LB FRANK ZOMBOHow tough is this loss for you? “We had a lot of hope coming into the playoffs of going extremely farSo it was definitely a shotWe thought we had a lot of football left to play, so it hurts.” 5TITANS CB LOGAN RYANOn the Chiefs in the second half: “I think they played a little tight in the second half, conservativeAnd, we let it looseThey had like 30 yards receiving or somethingThey did nothing the second halfThey didn’t score a pointWe had our quarterback out there making miraculous playsWe had some bad breaks, but we still respondedWe played a bunch of guys who had nothing to lose – a bunch of guys who are underrated, undervalued, who came from different places, and who were trying to do something specialWe believe that.” 4CHIEFS LB DERRICK JOHNSONDoes the result of this game have an impact on what decision you might make, career wise? “No, I’ll go back to Texas and be with my kids and chill out a little bit I’m definitely playing ball again That’s not a question But it’s not the time to talk about where I am going to be playing I’m a Chief I’ve been in this league 13 years Opportunities like this don’t come around a lot.” 3CHIEFS QB ALEX SMITH Do you want to be back here next year? “Yeah, I mean are you kidding? I signed a contract, I’m under contract for another yearSo like I said, I’m not thinking about anything elseRight now obviously disappointedLike I said, I felt like we had a good chance, and it’s goneIt’s over.” 2TITANS TE DELANIE WALKERThere was a miracle in Music City a few years agoThis was pretty close to a miracle don’t you think? “I think I heard someone say that the only way the Titans could win if there’s a win in Music CityThere must have been a miracle then because we got it done.” 1CHIEFS HC ANDY REIDShould fans expect more from this team and the organization? “The players expect to win the championship and the coaches expect to do the same thingI’m on boardEverybody, let’s go.” More From Arrowhead Pride Jon Gruden says Chiefs fans taunting him got his juices going What new OC Eric Bieniemy wants defenses to say after playing the Chiefs How the Chiefs coached “wild horse rider” Patrick Mahomes There are odds on Alex Smith’s next team and the Chiefs are at the top Chiefs name Alex Smith team MVP, Kareem Hunt rookie of the year Chiefs’ fans’ take on Andy Reid: “He’s good, but…” Trending Eric Bieniemy meets the media There are odds on Alex Smith’s next team and the Chiefs are at the top Gruden says Chiefs fans taunting him got his juices going How the Chiefs coached “wild horse rider” Patrick Mahomes LT: Eric Bieniemy a 'star in the making' So says LaDainian Tomlinson.
