FanPulse: Chiefs fans’ confidence takes slight dip after Tyreek Hill news

New, comments

Still, 95 percent of Chiefs fans like the direction of the team.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Many of you here at Arrowhead Pride began voting on various things concerning the Kansas City Chiefs and matters across the NFL last year and this past offseason. 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.

If you are interested in joining the Chiefs’ FanPulse, please sign up here.


Let’s see what has happened to fan base confidence heading into Week 2:

Trends

  • At the end of the season, 94 percent of Chiefs fans said they were confident in the direction of the team. At the end of free agency, that number dipped to 79 percent.
  • Before the draft, 95 percent of Chiefs fans were confident in the direction of the team. After the draft, that number fell to 85 percent.
  • At preseason Week 1, 99 percent of Chiefs fans were confident in the direction of the team. That number has only dipped 1 percent, to 98 percent, headed into the Chiefs’ Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
  • Following the Chiefs’ Week 1 win against the Jaguars, 95 percent of Chiefs fans felt confident in the direction of the team, a slight dip from last week.

40-26 is a good win, but there has to be some concern over Tyreek Hill’s injury. The Chiefs are expected to be without Hill for a few weeks. If they can defeat the Oakland Raiders without their star receiver, perhaps the number gets closer to a perfect 100 percent.


In the national question, fans were asked about the most disappointing team in Week 1.

This isn’t much a surprise. While the Atlanta Falcons, Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers did get some votes, the much-hyped Cleveland Browns walked away the winner here after losing 43-14 to the Tennessee Titans.
