The defense needs to be a top-five unit, preferably No. 1. For the season, I'd expect a takeaway/giveaway differential of plus-8. For the Super Bowl win, I'd need Tamba Hali and Brandon Flowers to cement the turnover battle. I'd like at least four turnovers.
Hey, Ryan Succop! I need no less than three field goals. Charles, Hillis and the defense will handle the rest. And like that, Kansas City can win a Super Bowl!
What, hard to grasp? Who expects Cassel to be the main catalyst for the Chiefs in 2012? It's all you hear. The Chiefs are better, BUT.

"I think that really solidified ... I think it made me stand out among the rookies because I think I was the only (true) tryout rookie that they kept," said Ellis, who's still in Kansas City preparing for the start of OTAs Monday...
"...From a young guys' perspective, we're just working to make the team fully through mini-camp and make that 53-man roster," Ellis said. "Everybody here as a whole organization is just working every day to get better. It's a true family out here and everybody's just working to get better in every aspect."
