For years the Chiefs have been an exciting offensive juggernaut capable of scoring on land and in the air. Unfortunately, they often couldn’t stop opponents from doing the same against them. It’s now the Herm Edwards era in Kansas City, where everything, including the defense, will eventually be up-to-date.

Trent Green (507 ATT, 317 COMP, 4,014 YDS, 17 TDs, 10 INT) was the only QB to take the field for the Chiefs last season. He’s 36 years old and in great shape. Expect another stellar season from this definitive pro.

Larry Johnson (336 ATT, 1,750 YDS, 5.2 AVG, 20 TDs) is a phenomenal rusher, who usually breaks two or three big runs a contest. Virtually unstoppable, he’ll be a potent force under new coach Herm Edwards. The Chiefs are without FB Tony Richardson (Minnesota)—a great blocker and important short yardage guy. Ronnie Cruz will try to fill the gap.

WR Eddie Kennison (68 REC, 1,102 YDS, 16.2 AVG, 5 TDs) and TE Tony Gonzalez (78 REC, 905 YDS, 11.6 AVG, 2 TDs) are two of the best around, while Samie Parker is developing and RB Johnson also provides sure hands on the fly.

The offensive line is simply one of the best in the NFL, with a slew of Pro Bowlers.

The first two Kansas City draft picks this year were defensive players—end Tamba Hali (Penn State) and safety Bernard Pollard (Purdue). Hali will make an immediate impact on a defensive line that needs serious help. DE Jared Allen, who led the team with 11 sacks, is a solid lineman, while Eric Hicks with 4 sacks needs to do more.

The Chiefs played well against the run but were a dismal 30th at stopping the pass. The linebacking group improved but needs to make more gains this year and the secondary is filled with holes. Look for draft picks Pollard, safety Jarred Page and corner Marcus Maxey to all see playing time.
