Chiefs Players Already Looking Ahead To Green Bay After Seahawks Loss

After losing a game by 30 points at Arrowhead Stadium, the Kansas City Chiefs were surprisingly optimistic on Friday night. Therein lies the beauty of the NFL preseason, where wins and losses go down the drain after just a few weeks.

The Seattle Seahawks came into Kansas City and bullied them on offense, defense and special teams for an ultimate 44-14 win. After the game, it was clear that everyone just wanted to move on from the loss knowing that the preseason allows the slate to be wiped clean.

"You have to respond," said wide receiver Steve Breaston. "That's just the way it is. I know everybody is frustrated now. The things we did on the field are correctable. As players we have to take coaching. It's hard, after a loss like this, to move on to next week but it's what you have to do. You have to push a little bit more in practice and apply it to the next game.

"We did some good things out there but it was over shadowed by some turnovers. Those are all correctable. We have to make plays and keep drives alive. We have to keep grinding and keep our heads down."

Peyton Hillis didn't even acknowledge concern after the team's performance knowing that it was just a preseason game.

"I'm not [concerned]," said the Chiefs running back after the game. "This still is the preseason. It is no excuse for what happened tonight, but it is still the preseason. We still have time to get things accomplished. Hopefully we will do that."

Jon Baldwin agreed that the team just needed to focus on what is ahead and learn from what they can possibly take from such a lopsided loss.

"We've got to go back to the drawing board and make the corrections. [We need to] go back to practice and try to execute as much as possible and get ready for the next game."

The Chiefs certainly hope so. There's only one more meaningless game before the performances are set in stone. If they don't figure it out in the next two weeks, this could be a long season.
