Is the idea that the Chief’s offense is better than the 49ers truth or myth? How about a quick comparison of wide receivers.
- Deebo Samuel had 802 yards receiving in 15 games
- Emmanuel Sanders had 502 yards receiving for the 49ers in ten games
- Kendrick Bourne has 358 yards receiving in 16 games
- Richie James has 165 yards receiving in 16 games
- Dante Pettis has 109 yards receiving in 11 games.
Those numbers don’t exactly instill a lot of confidence until you compare them to the numbers put up by the Kansas City wide receivers.
- Tyreek Hill has 860 yards receiving in 12 games
- Sammy Watkins has 673 yards receiving in 14 games
- Mecole Hardman has 538 yards receiving in 16 games
- Demarcus Robinson has 449 yards receiving in 16 games
Their numbers are not that much better, especially when you remember Sanders played seven games in Denver and had 869 total yards receiving. Kansas City also had something like 91 more passing attempts than the 49ers. While Kansas City had 4690 yards receiving, the 49ers had 4029 and the 49ers had 12.2 yards per reception while Kansas City had 12.4. Not a lot of difference between the two.
The 49ers actually had more total yards on offense with 6334 to Kansas City’s 6259 which shows the 49ers have a much more balanced attack. The idea that Kansas City is better on offense is simply not true.
