We said the same thing about New England a week ago. We are every bit as good as Pit.

The Chiefs lost their best player.  Take away PIT's best and I'd agree.

..closely followed by the Raiders. The Chiefs got a lot of love after last Thursday's game, but I don't think they would beat the Steelers at a neutral site today. Maybe when they prove they can stop Bell from running wild and also show consistency on offense, that will change, but one performance in NE and now missing Berry doesn't make the Chiefs the top team. On a side note, was everyone amused by how the ESPN announcers salivated over Rivers? Acted like he was the second coming of Bart Starr.


You may be right Jet. This Chiefs team feels different. We will only know as the season progresses. I can't wait for the Pitt game.

I disagree, they got there best back.. sorry I love Berry but houston, is the best on the chiefs roster, and having dj back aint so bad, and then on the other side, the o line starting to play together, some serious speed on the outside and kelce. Very interested to see how Kareem plays against the eagles.

An argument could be made that Houston is more valuable on defense than Berry, but I think Berry saves/wins more games.  Actually, Peters probably would be hardest to replace.  Shutting down a large area of the field to the passing game is worth a lot.  NE threw ONCE to Peters area or man.  Bottom line is that it's a team game and no one player can win single handed.  But one player's mistake can cost 7 points.

Its really hard to say who "is the biggest difference maker" on the defense.

 

We could not stop the run last year with Berry and DJ because we were very weak up front with a slowed down POE, No Bailey and limtied Howard.

 

Chiefs addressed the D-Line vs the run in a Big way this offseason.

 

I think a rejuvenated Justin Houston is the real difference maker.

Houston shuts down an entire side of the field in the running game. No lb is better at sealing the edge

Agree. Every year is different. I believe the Chiefs have as much talent as Pittsburgh. They just gotta learn to beat teams like that. They will get their shot later this year.
