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.
Let’s check in on FanPulse ahead of Super Bowl LIV week...
- Following the bye, three in every four Chiefs fans (75%) said they were confident in the direction of the team. That number was up to 82% after the 40-9 win over the Raiders and rose to 90% after the Chiefs’ 23-16 win over the New England Patriots.
- After Patrick Mahomes’ snow game against the Broncos, fan confidence was back up to 95%, the highest it had been since Week 4.
- 97% of Chiefs fans were confident in the direction of the team headed into Week 17, and that actually dipped one percentage point to 96% following Week 17 and clinching the first-round playoff bye. Entering the Divisional round, Chiefs fan confidence stood at 94%. That was up to 96% heading into the AFC title game, and 98% going into the playoff bye week.
In our national questions, fans were asked about the coach they would rather have in the Super Bowl, along with who will win the big game...
- The Chiefs won out on both questions, with more than 60% of voters preferring Andy Reid over Kyle Shanahan and the Chiefs over the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.
