We've all heard how the Donks are an offensive powerhouse. We've all consoled ourselves with "Yeah, but we have a much better defense." And we do. But while I was responding to another thread I got out my calculator and got into trouble. Topeka....you can probably do a better job with these numbers than I did, but I found these numbers surprising.......
Donks.....343 points for....218 points against.
Chiefs 215 points for.....111 points against.
BOY OH BOY!!!! THEM DONKS LOOK LIKE A DAMNED POWERHOUSE!!!!!
But wait a minute....use your calculator.....
343 points for vs 218 points against means the Donks score 1.573 points for every point scored against them.
Chiefs are nowhere near that good.....RIGHT????
215 points for vs 111 points against means our Chiefs score 1.936 points for every point scored against them.
That means our Chiefs have a 23% greater point differential!!!!
"Yeah....but the Chiefs offense doesn't score enough......"
Lets see if that is true.....
Unless I am mistaken, our offense has scored 166 points this season.
That would make Points for 166....points against 111......let's see how that stacks up against the Donks....
166 to 111 means the Chiefs offense with NO HELP FROM THE DEFENSE OR SPECIAL TEAMS scores 1.495 points for every point scored against them. That is only 5.5% less than the Donks entire team point differential.
I am starting to think these damned DONKS are PAPER TIGERS!!!!!
Get your BBQs out boys!!!!!! We gonna cook us up some DONK BBQ!!!!!
And in case y'all didn't notice it on the news the other day, some US company just got FDA permission to open up a horse slaughterhouse to sell horsemeat abroad. A COINCIDENCE???? I THINK NOT!!!!
GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TIME TO BBQ UP SOME DONKEY!
Thing to keep in mind is that whatever happens on Nov. 17th, the Chiefs will get another chance at the Donkeys at Arrowhead on Dec. 1st.
I agree, the Donkeys are paper tigers and they ain't winning and SB this year on a level playing field.
Connecticut, your enthusiasm is infectious. I just ordered a Chiefs necktie on Amazon. My co-workers (Giants fans) are going get sick of me real soon. As far as statistics are concerned, KC is not a pretty team. The pundits, networks and even the fans love offense. Its what sells. One talking head even referred to the Chiefs as the homely girl at the dance that just won't go away, so you just have to dance with her eventually ... Or something like that. Pretty funny. 9-0. A charmed team. Even if they go 9-7 and one and out (which they wont).
I also work with 2 Giants fans and a Philthy fan. Slapped them pretty good in the first few weeks of the season! But talk about not going away!!!!! They still run their gums as if they were 9-0 and we were 1-8. Rolls his eyes! As to offense selling.....Let those turkeys sell offensive displays. We'll sell Super Bowl tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Analysis, CtChiefsFan! That just supports the conclusions in my "Chiefs Scoring Woes?" thread.
The perception exists that the Chiefs can't score enough to beat the Broncos and here is why. The Broncos have not scored less than 33 points in any game this year. The Chiefs have not scored more than 31 points in any game. That looks like a guaranteed win for the Broncos at first glance, but it doesn't take into account that the Broncos haven't played against the Chiefs defense and the Chiefs haven't played against the Broncos defense. The real numbers actually show that, facing each other, the Chiefs would outscore the Donkeys. That's all that matters.
We'll find out if those numbers hold up in less than a week and a half.
I don't care how many points the Donks score against the Dolts this Sunday, but I'm really anxious to see how many points they give up. San Diego is only averaging 0,1 PPG more than the Chiefs are, so that will be a real good indication of how many points the Chiefs will be able to score against Denver. Of course we know that out defense is far better than the Chargers (Chiefs 12.3 PAPG, Chargers 21.8 PAPG) so THAT will be the difference maker.
***Official Chiefs Crowd Game Thread Starter***
We all saw the so-called numbers go completely out the window in Oakland last week. Nobody would have even dreamed that Nick Foles would toss 7 TD passes, as the Eagles Offense had its struggles the previous 2 weeks.
For the Chiefs, if the O-Line will give Alex a bit better protection and the receivers do a better job of getting open and catching the ball, then the Chiefs scoring will go up. Would also like to see better push from the Chiefs interior Center and Guards on running plays.
Yeah ..... 3 field goals from the offense won't beat the broncos
The offense is going to make this the game they put it together for the whole game if they are going to move to 10-0. Alex is going to have to make the throws he needs to make. The O line is going to have to give him time to make those throws. The running game is going to have to do what they do for the whole game. And the WRs can't drop td passes like they did against the Bills. Like I've said all year this offense has potential but potential and getting it done on the field are 2 different things..
