Many of you here at Arrowhead Pride began being polled last year on various things concerning the Kansas City Chiefs and matters across the NFL. This is part of SB Nation’s FanPulse tool, which sends weekly questions to the city’s most plugged-in and dedicated Chiefs fans via email.
Chiefs fan confidence throughout the offseason
Chiefs fans’ confidence has remained consistently high throughout the offseason, with slight dips after free agency and the draft.
Let’s look at the official totals:
- At the end of the season, 94% of fans were confident in the direction of the Chiefs.
- Following free agency, 79% of fans were confident in the direction of the Chiefs.
- Right before the draft, 95% of fans were confident in the direction of the Chiefs.
- After the draft, 85% of fans were confident in the direction of the Chiefs.
11 fan bases had a higher confidence rating than Kansas City after the draft.
In early April, we told you that the win total over/unders were out. The Chiefs were listed at 10.5 wins.
So we asked...
Will the Chiefs be over or under 10.5 wins in 2019?
88% of Chiefs fans voted for 11 wins or more
12% of Chiefs fans voted for 10 wins or less
I think NBC Sports’ Peter King put it best last week. Regardless of how the rest of the 53-man roster plays out, Kansas City trusts in Patrick Mahomes to get it to 11 wins.
