KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The most accurate description of Dave Toub may be that he's a special teams savant.
He's able to make the rudimentary plays in a football game, kickoffs and punts, seem downright exhilarating. He's able to get guys who'd rather be playing offense or defense to volunteer for kick coverage or a field-goal unit. He's able to coax points out of places they shouldn't be scored.
In fact, what he's helped Kansas City accomplish through its first 13 games has only been matched or exceeded seven times since 1941, and two of those were by units that Toub coached in Chicago: The Chiefs already have two punt return touchdowns and two kickoff return touchdowns.
