What a difference a month makes.

Four Sundays ago, the Titans embarressed the Chiefs 27-3 in a game that really was not that close. At the time, Green Bay, Las Vegas, and Dallas were a combined 16-4. Other than the Giants game, November looked like a death march. The Chiefs emerged 4-0. To be sure, they caught some big breaks, but the defense only allowed 12 points per game. You can win a lot doing that. 

So, we go into the bye thankful for the first eleven games. The best is yet to come. What do you think girls?

Really wish the Steelers would get their act together. If the Chargers win tonight and next week, they are in 1st place.

That's OK. It's only because they have the tie breaker. In the last six games we play them again and get our own shot at Pittsbugh.

Sun, Dec 5 vs    Denver
Sun, Dec 12 vs    Las Vegas    
Thu, Dec 16 @    LA Chargers   
Sun, Dec 26 vs    Pittsburgh

Sun, Jan 2 @    Cincinnati 
Sun, Jan 9 @    Denver 

The playoff picture is pretty jumbled. However, the two teams with only three losses both have wins over the Chiefs.

What's more exciting news during bye week than a contract extension ...

 

Chiefs extended LS James Winchester.

2 year extension - making him the highest paid player at the position. Vet minimum plus some signing bonus ...

Good thing the vet min rises each year - so the next veteran Long Snapper signed can say the same  ...

Where did you see vet minimum? I can't find details anywhere. The closest thing I could find is this:

In 2017, Winchester restructured his deal to give the Chiefs an additional $400K in cap space. It’s likely that the new pact is similarly structured to provide KC with extra room in the near term, though Winchester will see a sizable bump from his current $890K/year average.

The highest-paid player at long snapper for the 2021 season is Jon Weeks of the Houston Texans. He signed a one-year with the Texans last offseason, and the contract is worth a total value of $1.21 million, with a base salary of $1.075 million, and $250,000 is fully guaranteed, per OverTheCap.

The Chiefs are #1 on FBO Special Teams rankings. Winchester is one reason. Still, he's 32. This may be his final contract, or not LS are a unique breed. 

The Dallas game gave us a big boost in the defensive rankings--from#30 up to #23. In the weighted ranknigs (recent games count more) we are up to #17. ST continue at #1. Offense is at #6, down one notch. There have been bright spots, but the offense is not consistent. 

As expected, Chris Jones is pulling in hardware, specifically Player of the Week.

The Cowboys game gave us a major bump in the power ranking.

I'll post it here though it's common knowledge that the Denver game was moved to Sunday night. We're bumping the Seahawks, whiI find amusing.

This is an interesting comment. We're on a roll, yet the bye comes at a helpful time. We have three straight divisional games coming up and some key players playing with or coming off injuries.

Bye week MVP. there should be no question on this one. On offense Tyreek hill is the only cndidate. In an off year he is having a monster deason, even by his standards. On defense, Im all in on Sneed, but the article splits the vote. For both, clearly Hill.

I saw a couple of articles on surprise or improved players. It begs the question who you think is improved and/or surprising? Some candidates for most improved:

Mike Danna - 6 GS, 3 sacks, 2 FF
Rashad Fenton - 6 GS, 5 PD, 1 FF--He's PFF's highest rated player on the whole defense, see below
Willie Gay--6 GS, 25 tackles, 2 Int, 2 PD
Byron Pringle--2 GS, 23 rec, 3 TD, 17 FD, 8 20+ plays
Darrel Williams--5 GS, 358 yd, 23 rec, 282, 5 TD

The question arrises, who is improved and who is just getting the opportunity?
