They have good young talent on the OL. They have Hillis and Charles at RB. They have Bowe, Breaston, McCluster and Baldwin at WR. They are at the bottom of the league in passing but they are top 5 in rushing.
Defensively, they have Shawn Smith, Dontari Poe, on the DL. They have Houston and Hali at OLB and Derrick Johnson at ILB. They have Flowers and Arenas at CB and Berry at Safety. They are young and loaded on defense. They are the number 8 scoring defense in the league last year.
Yeah, I could see how they could be contending in a year or two easily.
What KC does not need is a develpmental player that would "grow up" with the team. They need a win now quarterback. In 3 years, many of their corp will be getting close to 3rd contracts or out of the league. Cassel was supposed to be that guy, but he is an abject failure.
Also, the level of coaching skill between Andy Reid and Romeo Crennel cannot be overstated.
It does not matter because Jerry does not believe in creative destruction despite his greatest teams being the direct result of that.
