The Kansas City Chiefs will have a top 3 defensive backfield, #1 rushing attack from a year ago, the best OT tandem in the league, the best LB corp in the league, 2/3 of the D-line were drafted in the top 15 overall. TWO first round picks at wideout, and a suddenly above average QB in an offensive system that consistently ranked in the top half of the league in Philly.
WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT??? I promise that the other 11 teams that will make the playoffs this season don't have that kind of talent to claim heading into this season.
Stay Calm and Go Chiefs

According to Bill Williamson of ESPN, the Chiefs have NINE of the top 20 players in the AFC WEST.
Denver only had 7. You have to be looking REALLY hard for flaws on this team to keep you from feeling optimistic about this season. Not making this list are the first round picks the past three drafts. Fisher and Poe should make next year's list. Baldwin is still young enough to put things together and be the elite #2 option the Chiefs wanted from him. This new offensive system that actually throws the ball to large bodies should benefit Baldwin immensely.
1. Peyton Manning, quarterback, Denver: No suspense here. Manning was dominant last year, his first in the division. Yes, he is still a superstar.
2. Von Miller, linebacker, Denver: The third-year player is becoming one of the best defensive players in the NFL. An elite talent.
3. Jamaal Charles, running back, Kansas City: He was overshadowed by Adrian Peterson, but Charles was special in a comeback from a torn ACL.
4. Ryan Clady, tackle, Denver: Blocking for Manning gave Clady a boost, and Manning appreciated every minute of it.
5. Demaryius Thomas, receiver, Denver: He is not a product of Manning. The kid has rare skills.
6. Philip Rivers, quarterback, San Diego: Yes, he hasn’t been great for the past two years, but he is still a strong player.
7. Eric Weddle, safety, San Diego: One of the more underrated players in the league. Scouts love the way he plays.
8. Wes Welker, receiver, Denver: The free-agent prize of the division will make Manning even more lethal.
9. Dwayne Bowe, receiver, Kansas City: The league is waiting to see how Bowe responds to his big-money deal.
10. Eric Berry, safety, Kansas City: Healthy again, he is one of the most exciting young defenders in the game.
11. Tamba Hali, linebacker, Kansas City: He is a top pass-rusher. A very disruptive force.
12. Justin Houston, linebacker, Kansas City: Watching Houston and Miller grow together in the same division will be a treat.
13. Corey Liuget, defensive end, San Diego: He has a chance to become a top player at his position. Big second season.
14. Champ Bailey, cornerback, Denver: He’s near the end, but he is a still a plus player.
15. Branden Albert, tackle, Kansas City: He has improved steadily, and that’s why the Chiefs franchised him.
16. Derrick Johnson, linebacker, Kansas City: Simply a tackle machine. He’d help any team.
17. Brandon Flowers, cornerback, Kansas City: A scout favorite. A fundamental gem.
18. Alex Smith, quarterback, Kansas City: Not an elite quarterback, but he has proved he can win games.
