AP Pro32 comments about Chiefs

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 04, 2012
Comments on the Kansas City Chiefs by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses): --- KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (17) Chris Berman (ESPN, 21) - Healthy now, maybe 2010 wasn't fluke. Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 21) - They open with Falcons, Bills, Saints, Chargers, Ravens. Will find out about themselves quickly. Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 20) - Surprise team of 2010 trying to get back on track after rash of knee injuries last year. Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 16) - Haven't looked very good in preseason and that concerns me ... need a fast start. Bob Glauber (Newsday, 15) - Key players missing last year - Matt Cassel, Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry - are healthy again. Enough? Not if Peyton Manning has any say. Looks like wild card run at best for Romeo & Co. Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 19) - Pro Bowl pass rusher Tamba Hali will sit out KC's opener against Atlanta because of one-game NFL suspension. Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 17) - Chiefs trendy pick, but not sold on Romeo Crennel as coach ... yet. Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 22) - Despite boasting very talented athletes, KC will be undermined by draft reaches and erratic play under center. Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 22) - On paper, very solid team. Like running backs, receivers, and parts of defense. Should be higher, but until they show me they stay where they are. John Lynch (Fox Sports, 17) - Chiefs get major ''juice'' and playmaking ability back with return of RB Jamaal Charles, S Eric Berry and TE Tony Moeaki. QB Matt Cassel needs to return to solid form of 2010. Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 15) - General manager Scott Pioli has assembled his best offensive talent since taking reins in 2008. Secondary struggled in preseason without cornerback Brandon Flowers (heel). Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 9) - The more you see of this team, the more you like it. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
