Your Kansas City Chiefs First Half MVPs

We ran a couple of polls yesterday looking for the Kansas City Chiefs offensive and defensive MVPs through the first half of the season and the results aren't very surprising.

Offensively, Dwayne Bowe took home the MVP with 68 percent of the vote followed by Steve Breaston (16 percent), Jackie Battle (7 percent) and Matt Cassel (6 percent). 

Is Bowe as the MVP a surprise to anyone? Not to me. He's been the most consistent part of the offense from Week 1 through 9. He's in a contract year so it's a good time to be having one of your best NFL seasons.

Defensively, Derrick Johnson takes home the MVP with 81 percent of the vote. He's followed by Tamba Hali (9 percent), Brandon Flowers (5 percent), Kendrick Lewis (3 percent) and Brandon Carr (0 percent). 

Again, DJ isn't a major surprise to me here. Tamba and Flowers were his two biggest competitors but I don't think either has taken the jump DJ has this year.
