17 -Chiefs 7-9 Getting healthy will make a big difference for the Chiefs, who are under new leadership with Romeo Crennel. But is that enough to make up ground in the AFC West? (Kuharsky)

Think we're playing for the wildcard. Can't make up the difference between Manning & Cassel.

I don't care how much better everywhere else we are.

Before the standard "But Romeo owns Manning." argument comes. Lets just get in front of that with some reality. Say that's 100% true. Great! That's only 2 games. What about the other 14 Manning is killing it?

We'll have to win at least 11 games over the next couple years if we want to win the division.

The new CBA limits OTAs to where Peyton won't get to reach his needed perfection with his new pieces
Meanwhile Cassel has had 4 years to fine tune his complements...

What the article should have mentioned was "We would've ranked the chiefs lower because of Matt Cassel, but the rest of the team is stacked."

These rankings mean jack shit. NFL is the one league where every year is truly a new year. Teams can, and do, go from worst to first and vice versa and nobody can say who that will be.

And just like that - Denver is the favorite to win the division and is in the top 10. Didn't they just win 4 games year before last? I'd say Elway's doing a great job.

Building the team, though? Ehhh... he's fine. Nothing special, though.

It appears that's all Clayton is doing. Taking the 2011 record, adding or subtracting cool points depending on the free agent moves and whether or not your team's coach is suspended for the year, and then going from there.

We're only in Year 2 with Elway in the position... so far, very good. Nothing has really been proven though, but he's not the utter disaster that many proclaimed he would be. Things are moving in the right direction for sure.

Peyton was a huge add - it all relies on him staying healthy, obviously. Adding Tamme, Dreeson and Caldwell may not scream "crazy super monster" additions, but they're good players and you've seen what Peyton has done with people like this in the past - and they're playing with Thomas and Decker, who will be the keys. I'm interested to see if there's another WR to be added - or pass catching RB.

Time to focus a touch more on the defense in FA.

This is a very deep draft for offensive and defensive line (maybe not the most talented at the top, but certainly one of the deepest). Elway can go a looong way to boost his cred as a general manager/VP of Whatever Title He Holds if he hits one out of the park like Pioli did in 2011.

I totally agree. As much as I hated McDaniels, he did well with the 2010 draft.

It's difficult to screw up a top 10 pick - not impossible by any means - but much more difficult to hit home runs late in R1, and beyond.

They certainly need to find a balance of rookies that can "impact now" and others that can sit and learn, producing in spurts.

The mentality of the franchise just leaped into a 2-3 year SB or Bust mentality... so, that changes things a bit and it's why I haven't been opposed to trading a pick for a top young player in return. We'll see what they do, so far it's all been pretty good... it's early though.

2011 had a few possible duds in the draft... the two TEs, Moore... we'll see if they can turn it around in year 2.

How are the Saints still 11th? They’ve essentially lost their entire coaching staff and are still arguing with their HOF QB about money.

Potential of their QB play. Plus they won the division 5 years in a row before KC and Denver did the padst two years.
