NFL Mid-Season Review
The NFL is at its halfway point- kinda. So, here is mid-season awards. If you have been watching baseball and missed out on the first half of the season, here is a quick way to catch up.
Kansas City Chiefs (5-2).
They won 5 straight but have hit some hiccups the last 2 games. Games that were winnable and they were in the whole time. I think they are the best team in the League, but decided to break it up by division become the next team does have a better record despite being beat by the Chiefs.
Philadelphia Eagles (6-1)
They are the only 1 loss team still out there. The lone loss is from the Chiefs. They really have not had any premier wins this year, but sure had a great win against the Redskins on Monday.
Cleveland Browns (0-7)
No one has been fired but no one expects anything out of a franchise that has been terrible since inception.
San Francisco 49ers (0-7)
Sad because this is a historically premier franchise. But they cannot do anything right.
Alex Smith (Kansas City Chiefs)
Smith has 15 touchdowns and no interceptions this year. Last year he had a season total of 15 touch downs to 8 interceptions. He has 1,979 yards with a completion rate of 72.4 percent. Smith is having a fantastic year. Even in his last loss on the road to division rival the Raiders his offense put up 30 points. He’s having a great year.
The answer to this is always Bill Belichick as long as he’s still on the field. But he has a run for his money for the season. Sean McVay has already made me doubt my own life achievements, and he probably has for most NFL Head Coaches. He tool the 7-9 Rams of last year to actual contenders this year. They sit at 5-2 on the season at the top of their division with some quality wins under their belt.
