I cant see how your roster has only improved...losing your star Rb and starting LT is devastating.

There really isn't an overhaul on the O-Line. In fact, four of the starters all were more successful in traditional O-Line schemes. The only change is the addition of Justin Blalock, which is a massive upgrade over Matt Lehr, in any scheme.

Granted.

-Mediocre drafting and personel moves the last few years. Haven't done a great job of stocking the team with talent.
In regards to drafting I think McKay has been solid. About half of the starters were drafted by McKay. Free Agency and trades on the other hand haven't been good. Though injuries to Hartwell and Abraham play into that.

I'm not saying they're Super Bowl bound but to say the defense hasn't vastly improved personel wise is hypocrisy.

Thank you for proving the point. He truly believes the Chiefs did not vastly improve. Thus hypocrisy is a poor choice of words.

No. I suggest that you stop being bored of education and educate yourself. If you honestly can't understand who the "you" is in that definition you've got problems.

the giants arent expected to do well, and when that happens, they always seem to play well. Im not saying they're gonna be a huge contender but i do expect better than a top 10 pick... They have a pretty good team this year, adding by subtracting keys like Whitfield, Morton, Emmons and Tim Lewis. granted they have no tiki, but NOBODY knows what jacobs will do.

the NFL is so great b/c we can debate all offseason long over who looks good and who doesnt, but you never know how a certain key player will do or who'll get hurt...

Why the Eagles?

Titans (Pac-Man, VY Madden cover boy etc...)
Giants (Sorry but Brandon Jacobs is no Tiki Barber, and breaking in a new LT isn't easy...and I don't think Manning can handle the added pressure)
Chiefs (411 carries...LJ will break down this year)

Kansas City lost Shields, Knight, and probably Green too......but they'll be a better team this year with Harris, Edwards, Alfonso Boone, Tank Tyler, Dwayne Bowe, and Damion McIntosh at LT. Plus Damon Huard gave Kansas City better starts than Green last year anyway.

I say Tennessee, Buffalo, Green Bay, and the Giants all are worse off. The Giants are gonna stink this year, top 15 probably top 12 pick in 2008. Tennessee had the 19th pick last year because they got red hot down the stretch and a little lucky with Vince Young. Games are always close in the NFL, the Titans will probably be closer to how they were in 2005 than how they were in 06

I think the titans are a candidate. Losing top CB, RB, and two top WR from the roster could hurt. But well see how brandon jones, david givens, and paul williams are as part of the titans WR core.
Paul Williams is one of the guys I was really high on this year, but I don't expect him to make an impact for at least a year or two. WRs tend to have a very steep learning curve entering the NFL and I think Paul has a steeper one than most. He's too raw.

I dont really think that Buffalo is much worse off. Yes, they lost some starters, but they also did a good job of plugging holes via the draft, bringing in Lynch in place of McGahee, and Posluszny in place of Fletcher. They're going to be counting on some young players to step up and play larger roles this season, such as Keith Ellison (who played very well last season in place of an injured Spikes) in place of Takeo Spikes, and Ashton Youboty (who was highly touted before the '06 draft) in place of Nate Clements. They also improved the offensive line through free agency. So, the Bills definately got a lot younger, but I think they did a good job of not overpaying for aging veterans, and bringing in solid young talent to build around. Seems to me to be a "one step back, two steps forward" kind of situation.

The Colts will have the toughest time matching their end results of a year ago. Repeating is difficult enough, but that team lost a great deal of a defense that is shaky to begin with.

Alphonso Boone...umm......

I know the Chiefs defense didn't have much to improve on but still....the losses on the offensive line easily offset what has been "gained" on defense.
Does it really matter if Edwards is the only one to note? Plus, even if he is past his prime he still had 141 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles last year. I will take that any day.

Napoleon Harris is a huge improvement at middle linebacker. Is he Urlacher? No. But he is a huge improvement over Kawika Mitchell who is horrible in the tampa 2.

Demarcus Tyler and Turk McBride are going to bring much needed depth and energy to our defensive line. Alphonso Boone isn't a star but he is quality depth.

And Page and Pollard are going to make a big difference. Jarrad Page is 220+ pounds yet he is quick enough to play cornerback in the tampa 2.

The losses on the offensive line do not offset the gains on defense. John Welbourn will fill in just fine for Will Shields who's play had declined the past two years. Shields gave up 6 sacks last year. Also, we upgraded at left tackle. Damion McIntosh isn't a flashy or great player but he is most certainly an upgrade over I-65 Jordan Black.

Chiefs (411 carries...LJ will break down this year)
I love it when people say LJ will break down.

How wrong you are.
