According to NFL statistics the Chiefs are a great team..right now. Yes sir, nobody has a better offense in the AFC.
Don’t believe me?
Well, according to team rankings the Kansas City Chiefs are the number one ranked offense. The Chiefs are number one in rushing with 575 yards thus far and we’re 9th in passing with 750 yards. So overall WE ARE NUMBER ONE IN OFFENSE.
It gets better. We’ve got the 6th best defense in the AFC. This team is on the move fans. And while the Chiefs are only 10th in stopping the run, we’re number four in pass defense.
So take that Atlanta and Buffalo. Maybe the Saints game wasn’t a fluke after all. Maybe it was the sign of a really a great NFL team coming together.
Jamaal Charles leads the NFL in rushing with 323 yards. Dwayne Bowe is up there with 234 yards pass receiving. On his way to another quality plus 1000 yards and loads of touchdowns. So what are we worried about?
With a team with this early statistical start, can a play off season be just around the corner?
Crummy Atlanta was only ranked 8th in the NFC overall – 13th in rushing offense and 7th in passing. Man, do they suck.
OK, there is one minor issue, our quarterback.
Matt THE FRANCHISE Cassel is near the bottom by almost every measure. He has an overall quarterback rating of 73.8. He’s ahead of the Cleveland and Miami rookie quarterbacks but that’s about it. He does have 3 touchdowns to go with his 4 interceptions and tons of fumbles.
Yes, it looks like many of us were wrong this team IS on the right track.
Our general manager, Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel got it right. This Chiefs team is on the move. Be patient. By year’s end Matt will be playing like an All-Pro. The playoffs are but a blink away.
Hey, and the replacement refs may help too.
