I'm thinking that although alot of folks on this board have given up on T-D-T already that they still have a chance to develop. I strongly agree that the Chiefs need a good pass rusher and better lb's and better quality depth as the injuries showed last year.
The key is that when you run a 4-3, you need great pass rushers off the edge and that has become one of the toughest things to find. Arguably the second-most difficult position to find outside of QB. And you need to find not one but TWO of them.

That's why a lot of teams run a 3-4. Much easier to find pass rushers. And arguably, that might be where this team could be the strongest. You don't need pass rushers on the line here. You need 3 DTs who can occupy blockers and keep linemen off the LBs, who can then fill in the gaps.
