Are we comparing the 2017 team to the team the Chiefs had at the beginning of 2016 or the end? Many league rosters were better than a Chiefs team with Fulton at guard and a 3-4 defense with a completely invisible linebacking corps.
It comes down to health. I don't care about the potential of Hill or of Hunt. I do care about the known quantities that are game-changers when they are on the field, but haven't been changing games because they are not on the field.
This is absolutely true. Guys have to stay on the damn field.
