Chieftain Notebook: While passing game has obviously stood out, Chiefs also need to get running game started
LOGAN — Captain Obvious called and said to let you know that the Purple & White are a pass-oriented football team this fall.
He also said to inform you that last season’s by-necessity, grind-it-out running game that produced a tick under 223 yards per game (while throwing for just 57 yards per contest) is long gone.
Thanks, Captain Obvious. What was your first clue?
Probably that, in their first two games, the Chiefs have passed for 592 yards (296 per game) while rushing for just 143 (71.5) — and 70 of those rushing yards came on one play: Bryce McBride’s fourth-quarter touchdown jaunt at Teays Valley.
That said, a couple comparisons between Logan’s two-game totals to their full-season 2013 numbers are still somewhat startling.
