Yes, this is an effort to avoid some of the negativity floating around which is bound to appear when your team starts 0-4. Here are a few franchise record notes that came out of the Kansas City Chiefs 27-16 loss to the New York Giants:
Tamba Hali's "sack and hack" as Mitch Holthus called it was the 13th forced fumble of his career. This puts him third on the Chiefs franchise record book. He's tied with Jared Allen and Kevin Ross. Allen played more games than Hali and, assuming he gets one more this year, Hali will pass the former Chief.
He's unlikely to pass the top two on the list: Derrick Thomas with 45 and Neil Smith with 29.
Attempts from scrimmage
Larry Johnson passed Chief great Ed Podolak for second place on the franchise record for attempts from scrimmage. LJ has 1,461, 15 more than Podolak.
He's now 111 attempts behind the Chiefs all-time leader, Priest Holmes
With his 53 yards rushing today, LJ now has 189 on the season.
This puts him 232 yards away from Priest Holmes franchise record for rushing yards
