Associated Press

NEW YORK -- Comments on the Kansas City Chiefs by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (32)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 31) -- First draft pick will be fun.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 32) -- Another team that needs a quarterback before it can contend.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 32)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 32) -- Awful season cost Romeo Crennel and at some point possibly GM Scott Pioli as well.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 32) -- Too bad there isn't another Andrew Luck or RG3 to take with the first overall pick this time around.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 32) -- The Chiefs were the worst team in the NFL with a 2-14 record. They fired coach Romeo Crennel. The only surprise is that GM Scott Pioli didn't get whacked as well.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 32) -- It figures: The year the Chiefs have the first draft pick there's no quarterback worth taking that high.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 32) -- Some stats don't lie. The Chiefs threw eight TD passes all season. That's correct, eight.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 31) -- How does a team with two wins get three defensive players in the pro bowl? The quarterback situation needs to be fixed and fixed fast. I hope they get the right guy for the new coach.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 32) -- Tough year for the Chiefs.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 32) -- On the bright side, at least all that losing means Kansas City has the No. 1 pick in the 2013 draft.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 32) -- They had three more Pro Bowlers than victories, so Clark Hunt said adios to Romeo Crennel.
