I love you guys. Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news.

...The 2012 squad will be unveiled Tuesday evening through video highlights posted on KCChiefs.com. The team will have its first meeting on Friday to prepare for upcoming photo shoots and begin training.

Carr seems to be the easier one to replace. While losing him would be a hit to the Chiefs, they can find a Routt or another skilled cornerback. Finding a receiver who can give the Chiefs what Bowe has the past couple of years would nearly be impossible.

NFL free agency begins Tuesday, March 13th at 3:00 PM (CST). With the Chiefs looking to improve depth and competition across their roster, KCChiefs.com will preview 30 potential free agents in the 30 days leading up to the start of free agency.

Q: Everyone is talking about Miami or Washington as a good place for Manning, How about K.C.? The Chiefs aren't hot on Matt Cassel. They could re-sign Dwayne Bowe, and Jamaal Charles will be coming back from injury. I think it would be a perfect fit and could make the Chiefs into a really good team.

A: That is an interesting proposition and one that isn't being discussed. Romeo Crennel and Scott Pioli have gone on the record saying they will open up the competition for the starting QB job. The thought was that they would re-sign Kyle Orton to compete against Cassel. An upgrade to Manning would be interesting. I would say it's unlikely, but the Chiefs could warm up to the idea as Manning gets closer to being released.

Like Carr, Routt would be a good fit with Kansas City No. 1 cornerback Brandon Flowers. Routt was better as the No. 2 cornerback to Nnamdi Asomugha before he became the lead cornerback last season when the Raiders chose to give Routt a big contract instead of Asomugha. Oakland's new leadership cut Routt last week.

Brandon Bulkley, a self-described Kansas City Chiefs fan from Roeland Park, Kan., urged the FCC to "side with the little man for once, because without us there would be no money-making Goliath called the NFL."

A spasm of success in the ‘90s under Marty Schottenheimer means that a Chiefs fan near the age of 20 can recall when Kansas City was annually relevant. Now though, the maniacal Chiefs fan - and they are legion - wonders how all the good times can pass through other NFL cities and never visit theirs. They haven't won a playoff game since 1993, when Joe Montana lugged them to the AFC Championship where they were slobber-knocked by the Bills. Before that? Just one playoff win since the 1969 Super Bowl run.

2. Dwayne Bowe, receiver, Kansas City: Bowe has major skills and he will get paid. There are consistency and personality questions, but Bowe is a talent.
3. Brandon Carr, cornerback, Kansas City: I know some folks think Carr will be one of the prizes of free agency and he will be paid large by the Chiefs or someone else. But he's a No. 2 cornerback, so I'm always a bit worried to see them get paid before they prove they are No. 1 starters.
