By our unofficial count, we’ve got only three teams left in our lockout time-killing series based on the worst moments for each franchise since the last work stoppage.

On Thursday, we’ll take a look at the lowlights for the Chiefs.

Suggest your own worst moments for the franchise in the comments.  We’ll count them down at some point between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. ET.

    In no particular order…
    1993 AFC Championship Game vs. Bills (Joe getting hurt).
    1995 AFC Divisional round vs. Colts (Lin Elliott missing 3 easy FGs that would have won the game).
    1997 AFC Divisional round vs. Broncos (Marty starts Grbac instead of Gannon).
    1998 Monday Night Meltdown vs. Broncos (DT getting ejected).
    2003 AFC Divisional round vs. Colts (Shootout where neither team punted).

    Honorable mention:
    Herm Edwards regime
    2006 AFC Wild Card vs. Colts (supposed to win with LJ running game, instead can’t move the ball at all)
    2010 AFC Wild Card vs. Ravens (Chiefs piss down their leg at home after solid first half)
    The whole Larry Johnson situation in general.
    Trent Green’s injury vs. Bengals.
    Priest Holmes’ multiple injuries.

    Two words:

    Lin.
    Elliott.

    I know it’s supposed to be the pre-1987 moments, but the worst moment in Chiefs history has to be the day that someone said to Hank Stram……

    “Wow Coach! You can’t even tell it’s hairpiece at all!”

    I think their taking away their employee’s benefits (see your next item) is in the top one or two. Or do you only do football-related crappy moments?

    In no particular order…

    Derrick Thomas monday night melt down when the donkey’s actually showed up to play football.

    Derricks death.

    Firing Gunther Cunningham

    Hiring Herm Edwards

    The whole Bam Morris, Tamerick Vanover incidents.

    Losing Gonzo, it was time for him to go but he’s still our boy.

    Playing with only offensive players against the Colts in the playoffs, not a single punt in the entire game.

    Marty never getting to the SB.

    Linn Effing Elliot.

    Carl Peterson re-signing LJ.

    @krashie21……..

    Watch it, Mister!

    Easily the worst is Lin effing Elliot.

    Most tragic – D.T., Joe Delaney

    Lin Elliot – you P.O.S!!!!!!

    How about having your starting QB go down in week 6, having your back up come in and shine and go 9-1, lead you to the playoffs only to be BENCHED for the return of the injured starter, who loses the playoff game.

    Then, via free agency the following year, allowing the 9-1 QB to join a rival team in the division that goes on to win the division three years in a row. The QB you overlooked is league MVP, and among league leaders for 4 years.

    Gannon.

    If Delaney’s death isn’t #1, it should be #1A behind DT’s…….

    Trading Jared Allen

  12. yelix says: Jul 21, 2011 12:15 AM

    An obscure, yet significant honorable mention to me is when, after the 13-3 2003 season where our defense never showed up, we fired the DC and hired Gunther to improve the defense…and then just resigned all of the same defensive players. Yes, Greg Robinson was a bad coordinator, but the players were to blame too. Cue a 7-9 2004 season where our offense was just as good, but our defense did us in.

    #1. Carl Peterson, he turned a 5 year plan into a 20 year plan

    #2. Jared Allen getting traded to Minnesota(there will be a pattern relating back to number 1)

    #3. Larry Johnson getting a contract extension

    #4. Derrick Thomas’ death

    #5. Grbac/Gannon situation in the playoffs

    #6. Hiring Herman Edwards

    #7. Trying to groom Brodie Croyle to be a starter

    #8. Lin Elliot

    #9. Robert Geathers (in my opinion) dirty hit on Trent Green

    #10. Shawne Merriman’s dirty hit on Priest Holmes that pretty much ended his career

    #11. Herman Edwards telling fans to get over it

    #12. Stripping benefits from employees

    #13. Possibly the worst of all, the death of Lamar Hunt. The story of the NFL cannot be told without him and The Foolish Club

    The worst for me was watching the greatest QB of all time end up in a craphole like KC.

    ————————————-

    Joe, I am guessing you are in Canada and may have never been to KC, but obviously do not know for sure. If you have been there, you would know that KC is a great midwestern town.

    Having been to many games at the stadium, I can tell you it is one of the loudest stadiums with some of the best fans. The tailgate parties full of BBQ rival any other in the NFL. The fans do not throw snowballs or batteries at the players, nor do they boo Santa Claus like the BEAGLE fans.

    I have been to several NFL stadiums, and would gladly go back to Arrowhead before many others.

    How about some of our draft picks…Terzelle Jenkins, Ryan Sims, Junior Siavii, Kris Wilson, ect.
