I won't know a thing until I see them actually play. Right now, I feel .500. I do think that the Chiefs and Raiders have a chance to compete for the division. It is just a matter of how much did the Chiefs improve, and can the Raiders over come being the Raiders.
It will be a tough season. The good news, though, is that I see what the Chiefs are building and I think this year is just a step towards what they will become. I think Pioli and Haley are doing it right. They didn't blow the bank on FA, and once this new CBA is put in place, I think they are poised to seriously upgrade in areas they were not able to fix in the draft. Next years could be huge.
