[QUOTE=Mohegangreen;4503184]I really liked the idea of Peyton Hillis, he signed for 1 yr 3 mil, that would have been a good low risk/high reward signing, maybe Ganaway or McKnight will be that guy if we're lucky[/QUOTE]
I'm really high on Joe McKnight (after watching how he performed on special teams last season) but man, that KC Chiefs offense is going to be very tough to stop.
Playmakers at every skilled position. Picking up Eric Winston at RT will become huge for that offense as well. Now that they're on the verge of getting Jamaal Charles back? A player who missed all of last season after rushing for 1,467 (6.4 yards per carry) back in only 2010? Watch out, because their backfield is loaded after the return of Charles along with the addition of Hillis. A 3 headed monster rushing attack in Charles, Hillis and Dexter McCluster. They're on the verge of featuring the NFL's most dynamic/dangerous backfield. Look for McCluster to have a special season both rushing and receiving out of the backfield. Can line that kid up everywhere as a dual threat. Getting a very solid TE in Kevin Boss should also help Cassel at quarterback. They have, in my eyes, a top 10 talent at the WR position in Dwayne Bowe. Kid can simply feast on the outside. a 6'4/230 pound 2nd year WR in Jon Baldwin who's ready to come into his own (development wise). Steve Breaston is the perfect slot WR coming off a 61 reception, 785 receiving yard type of season. This offense is young, it's blazing fast and it's explosive. All Matt Cassel has to do, is get the ball out to these guys in open space, and watch them run to daylight. The'll put points on the board without question. Too much talent on one side of the ball not to.
I also love what their doing on the defensive end of the ball, being led by blue chip prospect/talent in Safety Eric Berry. Flowers and Arenas (from what I've seen) are also decent CB's. They have three animals at LB to say the least in Derrick Johnson (IMLB) along with a great pass rushing OLB in Tamba Hali. Can't forget about IMLB Jovan Belcher either, who's only 26 years of age coming off consecutive seasons of 84+ tackles. Landing Brandon Siler as a backup MLB during the offseason was big, gave them solid depth behind Johnson/Belcher. I simply love what they've done with their defensive line over the years, it's re-vamped, being led by Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson. I almost forgot to mention, KC just drafted a DT by the name of Dontari Poe with the 11th overall pick of the 1st round. Just solidified their defensive front. Those guys are monsters on the defensive line. Also picked up Ropati Pitoitua after being released by the Jets. He could provide solid depth for their defensive front. I love the potential of their offense and am amazed at what they've done to that defense over the years. It's top 5 legit heading into 2012.
I know the Broncos have Manning and the Charges are always tough, but I think they take the AFC West this season.
