Moss is at his best when he has a chip on his shoulder. He terrorized the league as a rookie after several teams passed on him on draft day. He's enjoyed monster games after some of his most controversial moments. Now that he's found a new home with the Raiders, he'll be as focused as ever and eager to prove why he's the scariest offensive weapon in the game. Right now it's a good bet he challenges his career-high in touchdown receptions.
2. Is this the toughest division in football?
Without question. The Chiefs now have enough defensive talent to be considered legitimate Super Bowl contenders. The Raiders could challenge for a postseason spot with all the offensive firepower on their roster. And the Chargers and Broncos were playoff teams that didn't lose much in the offseason. No division will offer more heated head-to-head matchups.
3. Can Drew Brees play at the same level he did in 2004?
There really is no reason to think Brees will regress after his monster performance last season (3,159 passing yards, 27 touchdowns, seven interceptions). He still doesn't have a long-term contract and when we last checked, Phillip Rivers was considered the team's quarterback of the future. Until those factors change, Brees will have to play like a Pro Bowler every time he takes the field.
4. Which offseason acquisition will play the biggest role in Kansas City's hopes for an improved defense?
The Chiefs' best offseason addition was cornerback Patrick Surtain. He's an aggressive defender with excellent ball skills, a player whose presence will allow defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham to run his beloved blitz packages with confidence. Once Eric Warfield returns from his four-game suspension, the Chiefs will have their best cornerback duo since James Hasty and DaleCarter left town years ago.
