Wrapping Up Chiefs Approval Polls For October 2011

We've been doing monthly approval polls for the Kansas City Chiefs brass -- head coach Todd Haley, GM Scott Pioli and owner Clark Hunt -- for over two years now and October 2011 was one of the lowest months we've seen for each of the guys we track.

Here's how October's results came out:
Click on the link for each to see a history of where they fall in the approval polls and you'll see these are fairly low (not that that's not to be expected with the way the Chiefs started).

Haley was in the 90 percent range leading up to the season and his September 2011 polls dropped 20 points from August, down to 72 percent. That's what happens when you start a season getting blown out.
 
Pioli was in the 90 percent range in July as the lockout was ending that month and his numbers started to drop in August (free agency was the big topic that month).

Hunt's numbers have been low for a while and the decline started around the time of the lockout last March.

I'm pretty interested to see what November 2010 looks like. If the Chiefs win, you gotta think those numbers go up. But if they lose, I'm curious to see how much credit folks give Haley, Pioli and Hunt for three straight wins.

We'll be posting our November approval polls next week, after the Chargers game.
