I realize predictions are worthless but we have made alot of major changes to fix our defense, which is our only problem area. Particularly securing a lead in the fourth quarter. It seems like we should at least be mentioned as a playoff contender.

Yes.

No, we're not being overlooked. When a defense is as bad as ours had been, you have to earn respect.

I think everyone recognizes the potential of hte Chiefs as a "dark horse" IF their defense is finally straightened out, but there's been too many years of unbelievably bad defense for people to take them seriously YET. It's "wait and see", I think.

If you get off to a fast start, the hype machine will go into overdrive for you guys, I'm sure.

Until our “Paper Tiger” Defense shows up on the field, we will not [and should not] be considered contenders.

The defense needs to win some games for the offense and the whole team needs to win a playoff game outside of Arrowhead. Until that happens, we shouldn't worry about being contenders.

The pattern lately has been:
odd year, no respect, good season;
even year, respect, bad season.

I hope so. It seems like every year I see us as a super bowl pick we miss the playoffs.

I think we should be getting more respect, but it's a good thing that the players aren't hearing how great they are...yet. Teams like Baltimore and the Colts get loads of press-time and their question marks are at least as big as the Chiefs' are at this point, IMO. But the talking heads are just having too much fun laughing at how bad the Chiefs D has been the last several years. I can't wait til they are proven wrong.

Hit the nail right on the head.

No...to be considered a contender, this team would have to reside in Dallas.

I'd say any team with an offense as prolific as ours deserves at least a small amount of consideration.

But more to the point, when these idiots are already engraving the Raiders name onto the Lombadri trophy, based on their projected offense and in spite of their horrible defense, then yes, we are being over looked.

Fine by me. When we start bitch slapping good teams early in the year, people will take notice.

I kinda like comming in under the radar. There is still pressure to perform plus you can play with a chip on your shoulder.

I wouldn't want it any other way.

I would agree with this. Why would, after KC's debacle last season, anyone put a team up that high based soley upon the offense and without any recognition of a horrid defense?

If the Rai ders are the #4 team in the league, based upon their offense, why wouldn't KC be the Super Bowl favorite?

Let them look past us.

Cinderella story works for me.

Vegas says 14:1 not bad.

The team needs to win a playoff game, period.

At the same time, though, the talking heads on ESPN would rather trash the D than make a real prediction. And they're too busy talking about TO anyway.

That has been the pattern for the last 15 or so years. :)

And yet the Vikings and Colts don't.

I don't really think anyone is a rock solid contender right now, except the Eagles and the Patriots.

Exactly!

Besides, last year was the first time in years the Chiefs were getting the recognition that I thought they deserved, than they had to blow it. This year they suck cock until they prove otherwise on the field.

With the Vikings, the NFC is weak, kind of hard not to pick them to go far. Someone has to make the playoffs. And with the Colts, if it wasn't for New England, the Colts could have won a few SB's. That's my guess.
