Defensive Improvement in the 2nd Half

The Chiefs D showed a marked improvement in the 2nd half of the season.

1st 8 games 22.87 ppg
2nd 8 games 17.75 ppg

Throw out non-offensive TDs vs. us you get:
22 ppg and 16.87 ppg.

Either way, that's a big improvement.

In yards per game:
1st 8 games: 355.25 ypg
2nd 8 games: 300.87 ypg


Any way you cut it, the D did much better in the 2nd half of the season. We might not be as far off as people think.

Just imagine if they hadn't forgotten how to tackle against the Giants or if the Refs hadn't ****ed them over every way imaginable against Dallas. They might have given up closer to 14 pts a game in the 2nd half...

Thats sums up the Dick Vermeil KC era in a nutshell. I just knew. I knew deep down that they would come out like worldbeaters these last two games of the season. Too little, too late.......Frustrating....

The defense did NOT improve in the last half of the season.

Stats, schmats. Watch the fuggin games and you'd see that they weren't better.

They put up some good games at home, like they always do.

But this defense lost the NY and Dallas games all by themselves.

Wrong on Dallas. AS play calling before half time.

Dallas game 10-14 point swing at half time
1:42 ball on the 9.
Passes ???? WTF. LJ runs for TD at least FG. They dont score before half.

We win that game.

stats aside........the giants, cowboy and bills games were not great defense efforts. That is at least 3 of the 8. Of course the O could have been better in the bills game.

How is the Bills game not a great defensive effort? They gave up 14 points and 209 total yards. Warfield got burned on ONE play, the other TD was a perfect throw and catch.

Bullshit.

They had 2 entire road games to make a 2nd half stop for a playoff spot and couldn't get it done.

When they looked good more often then not it was due to poor offense not good defense. Every good home defensive effort was helped by drop balls, fumbled snaps, etc.

Until the ahtleticism of the secondary is imporved and the defensive line is gutted out and shitcanned this pass defense will be in the lower 1/4 of the NFL.

But the offense stunk it up in Buffalo against a far more inferior team.
Not to mention the Giants game..... at worst, that game should have been a real shoot out....


Don't lay all of the blame on the defense this year..... The games that Roaf missed the offense stunk with very few exceptions. Need O-line depth, I do think that we did get some of that.... But did we get enough, I am not sure.

It certainly improved, and we faced some top offenses in the 2nd half. Anyone who thinks it got worse or made no improvement is a ****ing idiot.

I don't recall the defense making any big stand in the Philly game. Because, you know, one or two stated games is EVERYTHING.

i think the kind of offenses we played in the 2nd half on the road has something to do with the improved numbers.

1st half - avg 12th

@Oakland - 21st
@Denver - 5th
@Miami - 14th
@San Diego - 10th

2nd half - avg 19th

@Buffalo -28th
@Houston - 30th
@Dallas - 13th
@N.Y. Giants - 4th


pretty clear to me that we faced more difficult offenses on the road in the 1st half.

our defense is better at home though ... the whole team is crazy better at home.
