Slow week in the world of Kansas City Chiefs’ news. Thankfully at such times there’s always DVOA Stats to pour over and discuss.
Anticipate no further. We’ll see how our beloved 5-8 Chiefs are statistically fairing at this juncture of the season, courtesy Football Outsider’s weekly update, right after the jump.
When Clark Hunt complained about lack of consistency he obviously didn’t check the DVOA stats first. The Chiefs have been pretty consistent all season. Wins and losses aside, the 2011 Chiefs have a been very consistent team. Static. Bad but static. Actually I have to take that back a bit. The defense has shown some signs of coming along in the last few weeks. For me, from here on out, t will be interesting to see whether that recent trend of improvement can be sustained.
Last Sunday’s effort doesn’t give us a whole lot to be optimistic about unfortunately.
Our DL is actually showing signs of life. Breaston is statistically about where you’d want to see a #2 WR. Bowe is a different story.
I don’t know folks. Todd Haley, who actually started to grow on me this season a little bit, in the end failed at his self-proclaimed goal of “just trying to get a little better each week.” That just didn’t happen this year under his tenure and he probably should have be granted his alleged request to resign earlier in the season. 22 guys off the street or otherwise, Haley lost his team when they stopped improving. That didn’t just happen all of a sudden against the Jets. For all intents and purposes, it appears to have been a chronic affliction this entire season.
That’s my Double Take.
