The KC Chiefs had several players not live up to their expectations during this past 12-4 season. Who were the ten most disappointing Kansas City Chiefs in 2016?
The end of the season is always a time to look back and see what was good and bad about the KC Chiefs season. There was a lot of good from this team, like winning the division and making it to the playoffs for the second straight year.
On the other hand though, this team didn’t play to their seed and will now be watching the final two rounds of the playoffs from home.
On that note, the Chiefs suffered a lot of disappointment from some of their key players. Just which guys disappointed the most this season? Let’s take a look, starting with two honorable mentions.
MOST DISAPPOINTING CHIEFS IN 2016 – HONORABLE MENTIONS: ALLEN BAILEY AND JAYE HOWARD
After these two had dominated together in 2015, it was a bummer to see their production levels go down in 2016.
After giving Allen Bailey a well-deserved four-year extension near the end of the 2014 season, his production in 2016 was not great. Bailey only appeared in five games this season before injuring his shoulder after the week six game against the Raiders.
Before that, Bailey hadn’t recorded a single sack, which was disappointing after having four and a half in 2015.
As for Jaye Howard, fans were stoked when the Chiefs re-signed him to a two-year deal last offseason and he sorely disappointed. Howard appeared in eight total games and was eventually placed on injured reserve in the beginning of December with an injured hip. He had one sack on the season.
After these two had dominated together in 2015, it was a bummer to see their production levels go down in 2016, a year in which the team could have used them both. Hopefully both come back better than ever in 2017.
