Grade The Kansas City Chiefs 2011-12 Season

The Kansas City Chiefs 2011-12 season is finally over and the Chiefs finish the season just under .500 at 7-9. They beat the Denver Broncos on Sunday but still finish the season in last place in the AFC West.

So what grade do we give the Chiefs on the entire season?

I'm thinking a C right now. Anything higher would be too high, I think. And I can see an argument for a lower grade but, at the end of the day, the Chiefs did win seven games.

The adversity they faced is well-documented by now -- from the injuries to Todd Haley's firing. The Chiefs had excuses for losing but they also did plenty of bad things this year on their own. The reason I give this a C is because, if you had told me at the beginning of the season the Chiefs would win seven games despite losing Matt Cassel for part of the year, and Tony Moeaki, Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry for most of the year, I would probably be betting the under. From that standpoint, this season wasn't too bad.

We'll be wrapping up the season asking for grades at each position group but for now, take a look back at the season as a whole, and grade the Chiefs one last time.
