Chiefs' Charles right back at it as league's best back--SI.com

I'm glad others are realizing the incredible the talent that is our RB.

They really know how to maintain their image.

Asamoah PFF's Fifth Best Right Guard Performance of Season

16
5. Jon Asamoah, Kansas City Chiefs: Week 16 vs. Oakland (+4.4) Despite being one of the most consistent pass-protecting guards, Jon Asamoah wasn’t always as reliable in the run game. It’s not a surprise that he gave up no pressure whatsoever, but it was refreshing to see how well he played in the run game. Matched up primarily with Tommy Kelly, he won their battle comprehensively.

15. Chiefs The Chiefs had a good offseason in more ways than one. For starters, they're getting everybody back healthy. Second, signing Eric Winston and Kevin Boss to go along with another solid draft makes this team look like Denver's biggest threat in the AFC West. Yes, they signed Peyton Hillis, as well. They needed another slow running back to fill the Thomas Jones void.

Dontari Poe, NT, Kansas City Chiefs: He has the ability to be a Pro Bowl nose tackle. The Chiefs had their pick of all of the tackles in the draft and choose him. In the games I watched, Poe played well and hustled. I saw a player who was strong and explosive in his play. He was disruptive. I saw him stuff the run and get pressure on the quarterback. There were times he lost sight but not often enough to cause me a problem. Other people did not see the same effort I saw, thus causing concern. 1. Will Poe be a disruptive player or will he disappear in games? 2. What will he do in their nickel defense? Will he even be in the nickel defense? 3. Will he hustle and play hard to the whistle?

Bill Williamson: I find it a bit amusing that the consensus is that Poe will not succeed in the NFL. It’s as if the poor kid’s fate has already been sealed. Come on, folks. Had Kansas City not taken the defensive tackle from Memphis at No. 11, another team would quickly have taken him. Sure, he didn’t have great film in college. But there is no denying he is a talent. He will get supreme coaching from Romeo Crennel and Poe will be put in a position to succeed. Just because there are question marks doesn’t mean Poe has no chance to succeed. Don’t be shocked if in two years we hear what a steal he was. BW: I like him. I think he has a real chance. The fifth-round pick from Alabama was a cornerback in college but he may project as a safety in the NFL. He is a smart, heady player who stood out on a classic defense. Nick Saban’s defenders come to the NFL ready and I think we will see an impact made by this player. Yes, he lacks ideal speed, but it didn’t hurt him in the SEC and he knows how to make up for it. I know the Chiefs are tickled about this pick.

28. Kansas City Chiefs: Do Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel seem overly optimistic in their assessment of the Chiefs' talent level – or am I just so pessimistic about K.C.'s quarterback situation that it completely clouds my thinking? Hmmm...I have the suspicion that this guy doesn't like our team...

Best and Worst Draft Marriages

Best 2. Dontari Poe, NT, Kansas City: Critics have knocked Poe as a combine workout wonder, but a player who didn't dominate in college and routinely took plays off. Here's what they need to recognize: Poe stands 6-foot-3, weighs 346 pounds and has freakish athletic ability. That's exactly the kind of presence the Chiefs need in the middle of their defensive line, especially because they've been looking for such a player ever since installing the 3-4 scheme three seasons ago. Skeptics also should understand that Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel is as good as it gets when it comes to coaching up defensive players -- Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson have become Pro Bowlers since his arrival as a defensive coordinator in 2010. Also, massive interior line prospects routinely face criticism for their work ethic (Baltimore's Haloti Ngata, the game's best defensive tackle, heard similar complaints about his game coming into the league). Look, the Chiefs don't need Poe to be a miracle worker. If he commands double-teams and makes life easier on everybody around him, the Chiefs could have one of the league's best defenses this fall.

Wes Bunting Gives Some Serious Props to Devon Wylie

5

I loved the Chiefs fourth round selection of Fresno State wideout Devon Wylie. He’s the definition of a quick-twitch athlete who can separate quickly out of his breaks. He also possesses legit 4.3 speed and can run those deep crossing patterns from the inside. Wylie should be able to contribute early on as a slot guy and is the closest thing to Wes Welker I have seen come along in the NFL draft since the Patriots wide receiver came out. This looks very promising

Kansas City and Mr. Irrelevant

+

Best Mr. Irrelevants of all time according to NFL.com 2. Ryan Succop Succop has been a huge success for the Kansas City Chiefs since his rookie season in 2009, when he tied an NFL record by completing 86.2 percent of his kicks. Succop has continued to thrive, recently signing an extension with the Chiefs. 1. Billy Kenney The Chiefs also struck gold when they selected Kenney with the 333rd pick in the 1978 draft. Kenney's best season came in 1983, when he set a club record with 4,348 passing yards and was selected to the Pro Bowl. Kenney, however, would not duplicate those numbers again; injuries eventually forced him to cede the starting job to Todd Blackledge.

Interesting Yahoo Scouting Report on Kuechly

18

Conclusion: Kuechly's tape leaves you guessing: are you looking at the young Zach Thomas or London Fletcher, or just another middle linebacker who records a ton of tackles because that's what starting middle linebackers do? The devil is in the details, like Kuechly's ability to read blocks or pass route combinations. Diagnostic skills can help a step-slow, pound-light linebacker thrive in the NFL. Kuechly can be very productive in a classic Tampa-2. He can also fly around the field and clean up after the defensive line in a Lions or Eagles type Wide-9 defense, though he would get walloped now and then. Kuechly's upside is not great. He will never be Brian Urlacher. But the risk level is low. He will learn his role, play special teams as a rookie, and make the plays he is supposed to make. And if his college production is any indicator, a few more. Kuechly is a little better than the NFL comparison player below, but their play styles are similar.

Big Surprise: Everyone Likes the Chargers

This article on NFL.com has some preliminary playoff talk. Like always, we don't get a mention. Charlie Casserly: "Chargers in, Bengals out in the AFC playoffs I look for the San Diego Chargers to replace the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC playoffs this season. Ironically, they will play each other in San Diego on Dec. 2 in a game that might decide who goes to the playoffs. The Bengals are a good young team, but play in a very tough division. They could not beat Pittsburgh and Baltimore last season and still have to be rated behind them in the division. They also face the NFC East, a tougher division than the NFC South, which San Diego faces. Cincinnati's December schedule also is more difficult than San Diego's closing stretch. I feel San Diego has done more to date to improve its team than Cincinnati, adding WR Eddie Royal, WR Robert Meachem, LB Jarret Johnson and RB Le'Ron McClain to replace WR Vincent Jackson and RB Mike Tolbert. Cincinnati will have two first-round picks to San Diego's one in this year's draft, so they might close the gap." Adam Rank says: "After a brutal stretch at the beginning of the year puts the Broncos in a 2-4 hole, they'll fail to defend the AFC West title. The Chargers will win the division and somehow save Norv Turner's job again." Sometimes I just don't get it.

What do you guys think? Eric Berry of course comes to mind, but anyone else?

Interesting take on tow potential prospects, Ingram and Gilmore. I have to admit that the level of versatility and athleticism of Ingram has me drooling to see what RAC can do with him.

At the tailing end of the scale, we see Thomas Jones, who really should be used as some form of offensive line calibration tool, because he gets exactly what is there, and very little else. He was able to record just 1.4 yards after contact per carry, which is more than half a yard worse than any other running back in the study

Manning at 101 Awards

Hello AP Community! I am a long time reader and a first time poster. I thought that I would jump into the PM fray and add my two cents. I don't know if this has been posted before, but this is a short video of Peyton Manning talking about SNL, the organization, and a special shout out to chiefs fans!
