Least competitive team in Kansas City Chiefs history

This is going to go down as the least competitive team in Chiefs history.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs are currently sitting with a point differential this season of (-179), which is good for last in the NFL. But it goes farther than that and even more depressing.

This point differential will also go down as the worst in Chiefs franchise history. They can change that against the Denver Broncos next week but they'd have to win by at least 24 points. I just don't see that happening.

The 2008 team (-149) comes in at No. 2 in the 'least competitive Chiefs team ever' ranking. Then you've got the 2009 team (-130) and 2011 team (-126) rounding out the next two spots.

You might have noticed that three of the four 'least competitive Chiefs teams ever' in franchise history have happened within the last four years. That's Scott Pioli's tenure in Kansas City.

I believe this current team is talented enough that with better quarterback play they'd be much more competitive. But that decision ultimately falls on Scott Pioli and he's failed at the most important spot on a football team.

It's sad that Arrowhead Stadium doesn't seem to be the home-field advantage that it once was and that fans are more excited about potential changes to the coaching staff, front office and quarterback position than they are about a home game. Winning just 4 of their last 16 games at home is pathetic for a town with as many passionate football fans as Kansas City.

Hopefully the upcoming off-season brings Chiefs fans the one thing they need right now.
