Passing and Rushing: This Preseason in the AFC West

Passing

We have looked pretty good passing in my opinion this preseason (at least first team).  We just have to do better at throwing the long ball.  I also think we were really vanilla in the packages that were ran.  Charlie will have some tricks up his sleeve.  Oh, and it didn't help that Palko threw some balls for us either.  Here is how we stack up against our rivals.

So, what do we see looking at this chart?  We were ranked 29th in the NFL in passing yards.  That isn't good at all and only 3 TD's is horrible.  We did get more TD's than Chargers though so I guess Preseason numbers are really meaningless.  I want you guys to focus on the sack numbers here.

 

Rushing

We will be a running team that sets up the pass this year.  I don't think that was any mystery there.  If our defense actually steps up, think the Jets here.  I was very impressed with our rushing numbers and Jackie Battle turned out to be a beast.  Here is how we stack up against our rivals.

So what do we see from this table?  We were 2nd in the Preseason with rushing yards.  We also have over a whole yard carry per average than any team in our division.  We also stacked up pretty decently in rushing TD's with our rivals.  Our first down's rushing is just crazy.  What do you guys think/

 

Go Chiefs!
