REPORT CARD: Chiefs Vs. Jets

From MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey

RUSHING OFFENSE: F – It wasn’t like the afternoon turned out to be a good time to punch up the running statistics. But anything would have helped the Chiefs offense in the first half especially, and they owned a 1.9-yard per carry average. They finished the game averaging 3.1 yards per carry, gaining 65 yards on 21 carries. Take out 19 yards from QB Tyler Palko and WR Jerheme Urban and that’s 19 carries for 44 yards.

PASSING OFFENSE: F – When the first half was over, the Chiefs had minus-15 in net passing yards. That they finished up with 156 yards and a touchdown catch says a lot about their fortitude in the second half. But it wasn’t nearly enough to get the Chiefs back into the game. Five sacks kept Palko pretty gun shy for most of the day.

RUSHING DEFENSE: F – Shonn Greene took off on a 31-yard run on the first offensive snap of the game and that painted the picture that was ahead for the Chiefs. By the time he was done, Greene had 129 yards on 24 carries. QB Mark Sanchez had two runs, but they were designed for that, and both ended up in the end zone.

PASSING DEFENSE: C – The Jets really didn’t have to rely on their passing game in the second half, so heaven knows what their grade may have been if Sanchez was still flinging it around. The Chiefs had three sacks in 24 passing plays, a pretty good ratio for them. They only allowed one play to get away from them, and that one went for 36 yards. Screen passes killed the Chiefs all day.

SPECIAL TEAMS: C – The Chiefs did a good job of not giving up much in the kicking game, but they also did not make anything happen on special teams. Ryan Succop hit his 17th straight FG and the lost contain on coverage only once, when WR Jeremy Kerley got away for a 26-yard punt return.

COACHING: F – Haley blew his cool in the second half and was slapped with an unsportsmanlike penalty call. Later, his example led FB Le’Ron McClain to get his own unsportsmanlike call. While the deciding factor in this game was a question of talent, Haley and his staff did not do a good job in preparing the Chiefs. Or, more accurately they did not do a job as well as Rex Ryan and his staff.

    I’d like to see Haley and company return next year. Like bob said earlier in the year, this is a team that needs an offseason, ota’s and everything available in order to be successful. Besides, I’d rather stick with a coach for 5 years than keep the rotating coach and gm situation that has been going on in recent years. Things have got to stabilize in the organization for us to have a chance to be successful in the future.
