Beating up on lowly Kansas City Chiefs

Channel flipping on a football weekend:

The lowly Kansas City Chiefs (0-2) are becoming the laughingstock of the NFL. Several analysts took shots at them on Sunday. The L.A. Raiders routed them 23-8 on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

NBC’s Keith Olbermann on a marriage proposal at the L.A. Raiders-Chiefs game: “She said yes I’ll marry you, but I will not go to another Chiefs game with you.”

NFL Network’s Deion Sanders on the Denver Broncos’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 28: “Kansas City is a homecoming game.”

College talk: Fox Sports’ Jimmy Johnson says Ohio State should stick with running quarterback Terrell Pryor, a freshman, following the Buckeyes’ 35-3 loss at No. 1 USC. “Ohio State can win the Big Ten with whichever quarterback they’ve got in there. Terrelle Pryor needs to be the starter now.”

CBS’ Spencer Tillman says Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner, is not among his top three candidates for the 2008 award. “Chase Daniels is, Sam Bradford and Knowshon Moreno … Moreno is going to win this going away. Tebow is not in my mix. He is not going to get the number of carries he had last year. Dan Mullen, his offensive coordinator, wants him to carry it 10 times.”

E60 lineup: the next edition of ESPN’s newsmagazine “E:60” at 6 p.m. Tuesday, will feature:

 — An all-access story chronicling how high school football helped Parkersburg, Iowa, recover from the devastation of a tornado.

 — How the New York Yankees new cathedral of baseball is forcing children from the poorest Congressional district in the U.S. to look for recreation elsewhere.

 — A look at how surfing is changing the lives of troubled kids in Santa Barbara County’s barrios; and more.
