Based on preseason results thus far? The Royals were Cactus League champs, but that didn't mean much for their season.

I'm not saying the Chiefs are Super Bowl bound, but basing the season on a couple of preseason games isn't wise.

Why is it you think they're going to do so bad? If it's the preseason, I would point out that they're putting in entirely new packages so it's a little to be expected. Plus we've been playing without Michael Bennett who's the true backup to LJ... of course we look like crap with D. Brown.

We're missing Roaf and Shields. Anyone can look like Jim Brown behind last year's line.

If you saw anything in the preseason to make you think the Chumps will have a winning record, tell me what you saw.

I haven't seen anything in the preseason that would lead me to believe anything... it's the freaking preseason. I'll agree that those losses on the o-line are big, but I'll wait and see how big before giving up on their season. We've still got a great running back, a decent offensive line and an efficient quarterback. I think the defense will be the most improved as the season continues, and I really like what I've seen out of the strong safety we drafted this year, he's a big time hitter.

The problem is that any RB needs a line that can knock the other side two yards back to open a hole. The Chumps don't have that. LJ is going to get the [censored] knocked out of him this year

At this point in the season every single team has parts that look like trouble, I could give you a doomsday scenario for every team in the league. Ours happens to be that we lost 2 key guys on our offensive line and our lead blocker. Obviously we've got to get better up front, but that takes time because the line has to work as a unit and not as individuals. If you're a Bronco fan we can talk about how you're starting an undrafted rookie at running back, or about how after their first rough patch everybody will be screaming for Cutler. Every team in the league has a few problems, and everybody has a chance.

I haven't seen much that looks good yet. Granted, it is the preseason, but I don't have a bright outlook for it. Not only are we missing 2 very important pieces on the O-line, the best FB in the NFL, but we also have a new O-coordinator and a new head coach. We can still hope that it will all come together. Even in our winless preseason last year, you could see bright spots. I haven't see much to be excited about yet.

Let's see.... Their best offensive lineman is gone from a running offense. Consequently, the most complete TE in the league will be used primarily to block and not so much to bail out the offense on third down. They lost one of the best, if not the best, blocking FB's in the league. LJ is going to be hard pressed to find room to run consistently. If the safties make as many tackles as they have been forced to up to this point then KC will be one of the worst teams in the NFL.

My prediction. KC and my Raiders fight it out for last place in the west

Roaf is retired, Waters is MIA, Shields is in a cast, wide outs are marginally better than KU's. On Defense, well, its been pretty offensive.

5-11 maybe 7-9 Welcome to a rebuilding era.
