#3 New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs | Scouting report (http://proxy.espn.go.com/nfl/scouting?gameId=250911012)http://sports.espn.go.com/i/in.gif
Chad Pennington (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=5047) didn't start throwing until June in his return from shoulder surgery and is behind in terms of learning Mike Heimerdinger's new offense. Despite his career completion percentage of 66 percent, Pennington could struggle some this year. His quarterbacking peers have had an entire offseason to get into their throwing rhythms and work on offensive plays. Pennington has been rushing throughout camp to catch up. Plus, he's learning a new system. It would help to open against a defense that was among the worst last season, but this isn't the same Chiefs defense. There is more speed and talent on this year's unit. They've added linebackers Kendrell Bell (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=5486) and Derrick Johnson (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=7191), cornerback Patrick Surtain (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=4303) and safety Sammy Knight (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=4106). They gave up yards during the preseason but they were much better at harassing quarterbacks and stopping running plays. Pennington wasn't the only Jets player trying to catch up. Cornerback Ty Law (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=3188) signed well into camp and is trying to learn the defense in a secondary that is very young. Safety Erik Coleman (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=6902) is in his second year, and rookie Kerry Rhodes (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=7299) is starting at strong safety. If the Jets' defense struggles against the Chiefs' offense, Pennington might really have to play catch-up.

Clayton is a huge Chiefs fan this year. He's already picked us to win our division and DJ to win DRotY.

I think Clayton is on the few ESPN guys that likes our chances this year.

here are the "expert" picks for the year:

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/8812738

Analysts go on the record for 2005


(Sept. 7, 2005) -- The only thing for certain in the NFL is uncertainty. Year in and year out someone or some team will come out of nowhere to make an impact. That's why the experts at NFL.com will try their hands at predicting the top performances of 2005.

So which teams will be the top contenders for Super Bowl XL in Detroit? Who is most likely to run away with the rushing title? Who are this year's top rookies? There are plenty of viable candidates, and the experts can only agree to disagree.

The 2005 season is about to begin and here are the picks. Don't worry, we'll keep this handy and show it off again at the end of the year to see whose picks were right and whose weren't. In the meantime, check out last year's predictions column to see who is hot heading into this season.

Found this looking at the above linked article:

Most likely to have breakout season: Priest Holmes


WTF, whats he gonna do, score 50 TD's with 3000 yards???

I thought he's already been "broken out".

Really who gives a rats turd what the talking heads think about us?

Look at Sandy Eggo last year. There wasnt a person on the planet outside the locker room of the deadbolts that gave them any shot at winning more than 6 games.

Seriously, who cares?

I refuse to believe it until I see it. Keeps me grounded.
