A quick turnaround in KC?
By Bill Williamson
In an Insider piece, Pro Football Focus thinks the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs could mirror the 2012 Indianapolis Colts as a team that went from having the No. 1 pick in the draft to having big success.
I think the Chiefs can get better quickly but there is one type of player the 2012 Colts had that the Chiefs do not yet have – Andrew Luck. The Chiefs must find a quarterback before making any big 2013 plans.
In other AFC West news:
ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting Dallas could pursue former San Diego coach Norv Turner to run their offense. Turner had immense success as Dallas’ offensive coordinator in the early 1990s.
In an Insider piece, Mel Kiper thinks a couple of Denver rookies are poised to have big seasons in 2013.
In an Insider piece, Herm Edwards thinks the Chargers will be among a group of teams to bounce back in 2013. I maintain that the key is getting an influx of talent on offense for San Diego. The Chargers just aren’t currently good enough on offense.
Denver cornerback Champ Bailey and left tackle Ryan Clady both made USA Football’s All-Fundamentals team.
The Raiders named defensive back Michael Huff their recipient of the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
