> Kennison has had a couple decent years, but he's been hurt a lot and is really only a decent No. 2 receiver.
> The Chiefs have to play better defense. The better teams score a lot of points against them.
> Last year Larry Johnson carried the team down the stretch. If he were to go down, it would put a lot of strain on Green and a bunch of average receivers.
Ryan Sims, the fifth-year defensive tackle, has potential, but he doesn't seem to care about realizing it.
Since coming to the team as a fourth-round pick from Idaho State in 2004, Allen has been Kansas City's best defensive lineman. The 6'6", 270-pound Allen followed his nine-sack rookie season with 11 last year, relying mostly on quickness and determination. Having worked to refine his technique, make better use of his hands and learn countermoves, he'll be even more effective this year. "He's had a bunch of sacks over the last two seasons and doesn't have anybody around him," says one AFC scout. "That says all you have to know about him."
