Building the Perfect Beast

Other than Don Henley's album in 1984, The Green Bay Packers have built the perfect, Right 53, beast in 2010. The Packers won the 45th Super Bowl with 16 players on IR. Those 16 players included Mike Neal, Morgan Burnett, and  Marshall Newhouse, their 2nd, 3rd and a 5th round draft choice in 2010. www.drafttek.com has regraded the 2010 draft based on 2010 performance and the Green Bay Packers again take the crown. The Kansas City Chiefs finished a respectable 4th overall with Scott Pioli's best draft in KC. How do the Chiefs match up against the current World Champions of the NFL?

The Chiefs vs the Packers, I think that was the 2002-3 pre-season favorites a number of years ago.

Using the existing team depth Charts how do we compare?

Offense

Greg Jennings > Chris Chambers - not even a competition in 2010

Chad Clifton > Branden Albert - Clifton was a 2010 Pro Bowl selection and a 34 year old Bull

Brian Waters > Daryn Colledge - Waters was a 2010 Pro Bowl selection and a 34 year old Bull

Casey Weigmann > Scott Wells - Weigmann is long in the tooth, but still has a bite

Ryan Lilja > Josh Sitton - Lilja has a Super Bowl ring and now Sitton does to

Bryan Bulaga > Barry Richardson - Both have room to grow, Bulaga has more upside

Jeremiah Finley > Tony Moeaki - Finley edges the rookie for now

Dwayne Bowe > Donald Driver - Driver is the Superior WR but is now sliding with age

Aaron Rodgers > Matt Cassel

Korey Hall > Tim Castille - The Chiefs alternating FB roster spot is a joke

Jamaal Charles > Brandon Foster or Ryan Grant

The Chiefs and the Packers offensively are very similar in stats. Green Bay was 9th in offense the Chiefs were 12th. YPG Packers 358 and KC 350. The Packers converted 42% of third downs the Chiefs 37%, definitely an area to work on in 2011.

Defense

Ryan Pickett > Tyson Jackson

B.J. Raji > Ron Edwards

Glenn Dorsey > Cullen Jenkins

Clay Mathews vs Tamba Hali - Not calling this one :)

Derrick Johnson vs A.J. Hawk - again not calling this one

Desmond Bishop > Jovan Belcher

Erik Walden > Mike Vrabel

Charles Woodson vs Brandon Flowers

Tramon Williams > Brandon Carr

Eric Berry > Charlie Peprah

Nick Collins > Jon McGraw, and the youngster Kendrick Lewis

The Chiefs Defense is not up to the standards of the Green Bay Packers. The Packers defense ranks 5th in the NFL with 309 yards per game allowed. The Kansas City Chiefs defense ranked 14th and allowed 330 YPG.The Packers defense allowed 15 PPG, the Chiefs 20.4 PPG. Other than those stats, we are close on 3rd down pct allowed, turnovers forced. The Packers created 9 more sacks in 2010.

Well the cupboard is not bare for the Chiefs, yet if the Packers continue to outdraft us and out perform us on the field it will be a tough team to catch. We get to go man on man in 2011 in Kansas City against the World Champs.

Go Chiefs
