    Coming off a 13-3 finish in 2003, the KC Chiefs had the NFL's #1 offense in 2004....4600 yards passing, 2300 yards rushing, and averaging 30 points per game.

    Absolutely amazing...almost 7000 yards of offense.

    The Chiefs' record for that year? 7-9

    Don't think it can't happen again.

      True, but Trent Green is no Peyton Manning.

        Seeing as how the colts don't have a first round pick in 08 they won't be able to land Glenn Dorsey unless he has an incrediably bad year and his stock goes down the drain

          And Joseph Addai is no Priest Holmes, Dallas Clark is no Tony Gonzalez, and the Colts offensive line does not compare at all to the one the Chiefs had back then.

              I might too, just cuz of Peyton. I mean, he could be the best ever. Plus the Colts WRs absolutely blow the hell out of anything the Chiefs have, had, or probably ever will have, and if Ugoh doesn't suck, their line will be more than good enough.

                IMO it all comes back to the coaching staff and peyton. Howard Mudd has been plugging in late rd draft picks on that line for years and making it one of the best in the league, tom moore is probably one of the top 2 coordinators in the league who will never be a head coach and tony dungy, well hes tony dungy, one of the best personnel coaches in the league

                  Point A: The #1 offense in 2004

                  The 04 Colts scored more total points (520 vs. 483) and averaged more points per game (32.625! vs. 30.1875), in 121 less plays (968 vs. 1089). For accuracy's sake, the yardage statistics for the 04 Chiefs - 2289 rushing yards, 4406 passing yards, 6695 total yards - and for the 04 Colts - 1852 rushing yards, 4623 passing yards, 6475 total yards.

                  The 04 Colts committed 17 turnovers, 10 interceptions and 7 fumbles, whereas the Chiefs committed 27, in the form of 17 interceptions and 10 fumbles. A good factor as to why the Colts were +19 in turnover differential and the fraud Chiefs were -7 in 2004. Those extra yards gained by 04 Chiefs offense aren't surprising.

                  And maybe most importantly, the Colts did it considering the following (analysis by me for another site):

                  What's crazy is is that, if [2004] Manning was the stathound that critics claim(ed) him to be, he could have put up 55 TDs in 2004. Not many realize how much time he sat out that season, with the score so far ahead to protect the porous defense. He even left after the first (vanilla) drive against Denver in the regular season finale, because seedings were set and the Colts were set to play the Broncos in the Wild card round the next week.

                  Looking at time remaining when Jim Sorgi entered the game:
                  Q4 12:42 @CHI
                  Q3 1:15 @DET
                  Q4 9:53 TEN
                  Q1 12:16 @DEN

                  => Manning sat out 96:06 of gametime in 2004. He effectively broke the TD and single season passer rating record in less than 14.5 games.

                  Of course, then the Colts unleashed the greatest quarterback to ever wear a jock in Jim Sorgi, which was completely unfair. Hence why the league informed the Colts after the 04 season to avoid playing Sorgi at all costs, to keep the game at a level playing field.
                  The Chiefs did have the superior running game, rushing for 2289 yards and 31 touchdowns; then again, that was the strength of their offense, given their offensive line and Priest Holmes as opposed to Trent Green and their paltry receiving core. Nevermind the 04 Colts' 51 passing touchdowns to the 04 Chiefs' 27, the Chiefs allowed 32 sacks to a staggering less 14 by the Colts. Despite the fact that the Colts threw for 217 more total passing yards and averaged 288.9 yds/g to the Chief's 275.4 yds/g - still considering the above point about Manning.

                  Could one argue that the 04 Chiefs had the tougher schedule? The 04 Colts averaged 38.24 points per game against the AFC West*, which dwarfed what they averaged against their own division (33.667 pts/g) in 6 games and just shy of what they averaged against the NFC West (39.5 pts/g) - a division as defensively-challenged as the 04 AFC West. The 04 Chiefs, on the other hand, averaged only 32.5 pts/g against the 04 AFC South and only 30.333 pts/g in their division: not close to what the record-breaking Colts offense did in similar circumstances, as noted above.

                  Also Football Outsiders' wonderful DVOA analysis confirms the above, ranking the 04 Colts offense (39.9%!) first in the league and the 04 Chiefs offense (28.7%) second. Notice the very considerable margin between the two.


                  *including the playoff game against the Broncos and excluding the Week 17 regular season game against the Broncos, which that the Colts essentially sat out; 35 pts vs Oakland (5-11), 35 pts vs Kansas City (7-9), 34 pts versus San Diego (12-4), and 49 pts vs Denver (10-6).

                  ***

                  Point B: The 2004 Kansas City Chiefs as a viable comparison

                  Frankly, I don't think they are. They didn't exhibit the continued success year after year, before or after 2003, that the Colts have. Different situations. One might as well bring up the 2004 Minnesota Vikings or one-year wonders of similar ilk.

                    That Chiefs team hadn't won 50 games in the last 4 years. If they had, I might be a little more worried.


                    The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                    If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                        Colts signed third-round DT Quinn Pitcock to a four-year contract.

                        "The Goat" missed the first week of training camp with a bum hamstring and had been on camp/PUP. The Colts want Pitcock to be a pass rusher from the interior initally, but he should become an every-down weapon down the line.

                        rotoworld


                        I didn't feel like looking through all 3 pages but it looks like Pitcock has passed his physical if they signed him.

                        Still doesn't look good for the Colts defense. I think Tank Johnson would be a great signing for them except for the suspension he would have to serve before joining the team.

                        I think they need to look for someone that gets cut at the end of a camp and try to bring in some extra depth.

                          To reiterate: this is a very big deal/loss for the Colts. One that I'd argue bests any "loss" the defense suffered this off-season.

                          McFarland is the only legit starting NT on the roster, starting or otherwise. At the current moment, the team is left with Dan Klecko and two unproven rookies in Quinn Pitcock and Ed Johnson. Which is to say, a poor situation to be in currently.

                          As for Tank Johnson, I really think that idea should be put to rest. Though don't worry, the dumbass Colts fans (unfortunately there's a good number of them nowadays) have already begun clamoring "we should get Tank now!!!" Mind you, many of these are the same fans who said "Fire Dungy now!!!" last year.

                          (I really loathe a good part of the Colts' fanbase, thankfully the Colts fans we have on NFLDC are steps above them.)

                          I wonder how long until members of the esteemed media mention Warren Sapp, despite the fact that he's a 3 tech and the Colts need a blasted NT. lol, I'm not joking, it happened last year too.

                            The only thing I can think of is to look within the roster for help a la the Patriots back in 04 when they used Troy Brown as a CB. Maybe they can use one of their OL as a DT.

                              The Colts should sign Tank. I was just thinking how they didn't have enough malcontents and distractions. Plus, who else is going to supply the team with guns now that Mike Doss is gone?


                              Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                                Kendrick Allen is still on the market. He won't provide any pass rush, but he can help the run defense.
