an opposing team's scout sizes up the Chiefs

" Trent Green got better as the season went along last year. It looked as if he got into a flow with the offense instead of trying to force plays that weren't there. Still, he threw 12 fourth-quarter interceptions, the most in the league. That shows terrible judgment....

Priest Holmes is Marshall Faulk without the name. What a player—in the passing game and running inside and outside....

They have to find a spot for Omar Easy, who's more of a classic fullback than Tony Richardson is....

Somebody explain how the Lions let Johnnie Morton get away. He's fast, and he has more than 3,000 receiving yards over the past three years. He gives the Chiefs some explosiveness....

The other receivers scare no one. Marvin (Snoop) Minnis is tough but undersized, and Eddie Kennison can't go near the middle....

The tackle spot could be their Achilles' heel, with Willie Roaf worn down and John Tait an underachiever....

The defensive line can't get enough pressure on the quarterback. Duane demons is supposed to be their best guy, but he's not fast enough around the corner, and he's coming off knee surgery....

Moving Mike Maslowski into the starting lineup at outside linebacker takes away the best special teams player on a club that was awful in the kicking game last year....

Greg Wesley is a big, physical and underrated safety. I'd blitz him a lot more. He has a real mean streak."
