Chiefs' offense: "one of the worst in the league, by nearly every measure"

http://www.arrowheadpride.com/2013/9...chiefs-offense

some numbers to chew on from arrowhead pride

Quote:
The Chiefs are actually 12th in the league in PPG, at 23.7. But if you take away the 14 points the defense is directly responsible for, that number drops to 19 PPG, which would be tied for 23rd - with the Raiders. The Chiefs are relying on the defense to score points, which isn't good. Defensive scoring is random and shouldn't be part of the game plan. They didn't need Tamba Hali's pick-6 to beat the Jaguars, but they did need Eric Berry's against the Eagles.

They also are just not moving the ball; their 333 yds/gm is 21st in the league and their 4.9 yds/play ranks 25th. "Well Kyle," you may ask, " if the Chiefs offense is so bad, how are they undefeated this year?" That's an excellent question, thank you for asking. The answer is that the defense and special teams are much, much better than we thought.
Quote:
The problem the Chiefs are having is getting to the Red Zone in the first place. They're 30th in yards per drive, with only Tampa Bay and Jacksonville behind them, and Cleveland directly in front of them (not good company to be in). This is a really, really bad offense. But here's the real kicker: the Chiefs' offense has the best starting field position in the NFL this year, and still can't score.
Quote:
The Chiefs average 17 yards per drive better field position than their opponents (ok, ok, 16.95), the best mark in the NFL (2nd table). Only two other teams average more than 10 yards better starting field position than their opponents (New England and Chicago). The Chiefs' average starting line of scrimmage (LOS) is their own 36.97 yard line (best in the NFL), while their opponents average starting LOS is their own 20.02 yard line (also best in the NFL). What all of that means is the Chiefs's offense is handed consistently great starting field position and can't do anything with it, then they let the special teams pin opponents deep in their own territory. The defense bails out the offense by not letting opponents move the ball, giving the offense the ball back with great starting field position. Lather, rinse, repeat.
There's a nice breakdown of our defense against philly over there as well:

Quote:
I have to reiterate and emphasize just how much the Chiefs played man to man -- like a ton of it. And they have the secondary to handle it, unlike most teams in the NFL. Specifically, they matched up Sean Smith on Cooper a lot on the outside. If this had been a prize fight, Cooper's corner would have thrown in the towel somewhere around the middle of the second quarter. Smith owned him right up until the end of the game when he started cramping up. Cooper just couldn't shake him, especially on those aforementioned deep routes Kelly had him running all game.

Which is going to happen when you loosen up PI rules. It doesn't change the fact that efficient offensive teams are enjoying just as much success as explosive offensive teams, yet somehow we keep talking as if 5,000 yard QBs are the way of the future.

The way the Ravens and Giants have played, Joe Montana could easily step in and win multiple Super Bowls. That tells you the game has not changed nearly as much as people want to pretend it has.

Total tangent. God. Can you imagine Aaron Rodgers behind center for this Chiefs team. Christ. We'd probably be averaging 35 ppg. Even with shitty line play. Because it's not like he hasn't carried GB in the past behind god awful lines.

I'm not asking for 5,000 yards.

Just the ability to consistently threaten a defense past 10 yards.

So far we don't have that with Alex.

Period.

Yes, that's true. Like I said, I haven't seen Alex Smith bring that and that's always been my concern. But I disagree that that's any different from previous eras. Joe Montana was an efficient QB for most of the game, but when you put the ball in his hands in the 4th quarter, he was going to score on you at every time.

Of course elite QB play isn't all you need, but it's pretty much a prereq if you want to play for a conference championship. The other parts then matter more deep into the playoffs, since everyone's QB is playing at an elite level at that point.

Biggest myth in the NFL. Many elite teams run the ball very well. One of the most dangerous teams in the NFL right now, the Seahawks, are a pretty old school "run the ball down your throat, play great defense, and play efficient at the QB position" teams.

Denver doesn't run the ball AT ALL.

So because one team doesn't run the ball, that's proof that running teams can't be successful?

Really? Is that why when you look at the Top 10 Passing Yards in a Season only 1, 1984 by Marino, didn't happen in the last 5 years.

This. Bottom line, there are lots of ways to win games.

Wilson doesn't put up huge stats, but he's a top QB. Elite doesn't mean stats. Elite means you make plays at critical points in the game.

He's excellent at throwing the ball down the field.

That's all I want.

It is not a passing league but the rookies came in and threw the ball all over the field last year. Hell Luck passed for 4375 yds and 23 TD's.

But it is not a passing league

Just because most of those QBs are putting up record-breaking yardage seasons, doesn't mean it's a formula for success. How many playoff wins do Romo and Stafford have? Apart from one Super Bowl run, the Saints have been horrible in the playoffs.

Yes, some QBs are putting up monster numbers. But last year, 7 of the 12 playoff teams were in the Top 11 in rushing. You don't think that means something?

Russel Wilson threw for 385 yards 2TDs/1INT and still lost a 30-28 game in the playoffs. You can win a lot of regular season games all sorts of ways, because the league is so mediocre... but, when you start playing the big boys, you need to put up points.
