Good afternoon Jags fans! I saw that Jonathan Loesche added a post over at Arrowhead Pride (AP), and we tend to like to return the favor. Feel free to ask any questions you have about the Chiefs and their coaches, and the AP fans will try and give as good an answer as we can.
Here's to a (hopefully) good game on Sunday, and very few injuries to either team.
Here's a quick breakdown of the Chiefs:
18th total offense, 27th passing offense, 1st rushing offense. 20th scoring defense, averaging 21.6 ppg.
Key Offensive Players Include:
Rookie WR/RB Dexter McCluster. He is a player that gets lined up all over the field and has tremendous speed. 10 receptions on the year for 106 yards and a TD. Has 7 rushes for 32 yards. He also won week 1's Rookie of the Week award for his 94 yard punt return against the Chargers.
20th total defense, 25th passing defense, 5th rushing defense. 3rd scoring defense, allowing 18.4 ppg.
Key Defensive Players Include:
CB Brandon Flowers. In my opinion, this is the best player on the entire team. He was on the brink of being a shut down corner last year and has really stepped up his game this year. He has batted down 10 passes this year, and has picked off 2. He gets his nose dirty on run support. His breaking speed fools QBs. You'll hear his name called on Sunday.
OLB Tamba Hali. Hali is our premiere pass rusher and has accumulated 4.5 sacks on the year. Most Chiefs fans believe that he is unjustly held and never gets fair holding calls. I agree. He's a hard working guy with a motor that never stops. He had three sacks through 2 games at Arrowhead, so we'll see if the home field crowd advantage feeds him again.
RDE Glenn Dorsey. This guy has had a monster year so far. He's our former 5th overall pick from 2008, and entering his 3rd year. He's progressed tremendously. Being a 3-4 DE, his stats aren't very flashy, but he causes havoc on the line and draws blockers. He's a big part of why the chiefs defense seems to be rejuvenated this year.
