AP Pro32 comments about Chiefs
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.
