Bobby Petrino to Arkansas and Titans @ Chiefs Statistical Preview

New, comments

I am sure you have heard by now that Bobby Petrino has resigned as the coach of the Atlanta Falcons to take the head coaching job at Arkansas. Petrino is probably cut out to be a college coach anyway, but he really didn't have a chance in Atlanta considering the whole Michael Vick thing came down between when he was hired and his first game. Apparently Petrino called in his resignation to Arthur Blank instead of meeting him face to face. That is pretty classless. It is crazy to me how much these coaches move around. It is also crazy when you think about the coaches in the SEC West now. As an Alabama fan, I am not too excited about this move.

Now for the statistical preview.

Both teams have struggled on offense and play pretty good defense. Throw into the mix the fact that the high on Sunday in Kansas City is 32, and you have all the makings for one really ugly game.

You can run on the Chiefs, and this seems like just the type of game that sets up well for a bruising back like LenDale White. The Titans gameplan will probably be to get him around 30 carries.
