The Kansas City Chiefs Record Tracker was created to monitor the progress of current Chiefs players against all-time franchise records. It’s also a nod to past Chiefs greats who may not have set or held onto franchise records, but deserve to be remembered for their top five careers.
10/7/2013 Key Insights:
- In yesterday’s 26-17 win over the Tennessee Titans, Jamaal Charles passed Christian Okoye for third place on the Chiefs franchise list for most rushing yards.
- With the Chiefs 5-0 start, Head Coach Andy Reid has already equalled record holder Hank Stram’s season low in wins of five. Hank Stram won five games in both the 1963 and 1974 season. Reid needs just three more wins to match Stram’s year one total.
- If Alex Smith can pass for just 178 yards this Sunday against the Raiders, he will be over halfway to record holder Len Dawson’s year one total for passing yards after just 37.5% of the season.
9/30/2013 Key Insights:
- Jamaal Charles fell 73 rushing yards short of passing Christian Okoye for third on the all-time list for Chiefs rushing yards. In just four games of the 2013 season, Charles has more than doubled the output of the Chiefs record holder for rushing yards, Priest Holmes, who played a shortened season in his final campaign with the Chiefs.
- Head Coach Andy Reid’s fast 4-0 start puts him already halfway to the first-year win total of the winningest coach in Chiefs history, Hank Stram.
- Dwayne Bowe is off to a slow start and is projected to reach only 592 receiving yards this season. Bowe could go the entire season without another yard and he would still be outpacing Tony Gonzalez through his first seven seasons with the Chiefs.
9/21/2013 Key Insights:
- After five complete seasons (one cut short by injury) and three games of the 2013 season, Jamaal Charles is 78% of the way to breaking Priest Holmes’ franchise record 6,070 rushing yards. Charles has a chance to break the record this season if he can achieve a 1,534 yard season.
- Last season, Dwayne Bowe passed the halfway milestone for catching the Chiefs receiving yardage record, which was set by the greatest tight end of all time, Tony Gonzalez. Bowe is actually outpacing Gonzalez through his first six seasons with the Chiefs. While Bowe has yet to crack the top five for Chiefs receiving, he has a good chance of jumping all the way to number three this season if he can go for 817 yards during the 2013 campaign.
- Newcomers QB Alex Smith and Head Coach Andy Reid have opportunities to beat the first year performances of the Chiefs passing (Len Dawson) and coaching wins (Hank Stram) record holders, who passed for 2,759 yards and won eight games.
