How deep are the Kansas City Chiefs?

Pat Kirwan of CBS Sports talks about determining the depth of a team with 13 questions. The primary question is whether a team has backup QB that can win two games out of four if needed.

Chase Daniel has only started one regular season game in his career, a game he lost. Pat Kirwin thinks 16 teams pass the test for sufficient quality of the backup QB to be in a discussion about enough depth to win the Super Bowl. Kirwan does not say if he thinks Chase Daniel is or isn't capable of winning 2 out of 4 if needed.

His other 12 questions to determine if a team has enough depth to compete for a championship:

1. Does your team have a real swing offensive tackle, a guy that can play left or right tackle and has experience?

2. Does your team have a solid inside offensive lineman that can play guard or center?

3. Is there a quality second running back that can deliver a 100-yard rushing day if he had to start?

4. Is there a good second tight end on the roster?

5. Can the third wide receiver step up and start in the two-WR packages if a starter went down?

6. Does your team have a designated pass-rush specialist who could play the early downs if need be?

7. Is there a third defensive tackle that not only plays in a rotation but could play the whole game if need be?

8. Is there a quality nickel corner on the roster, since most teams are at least 50 percent sub defenses?

9. Is there a fourth corner for dime packages?

10. Is there a third safety for big nickel defenses?

11. Is there a return specialist that can either handle both punt and kick returns or contribute as a real position player?

12. Does your team have a special teams linebacker that leads the specials and can play inside linebacker in a pinch?

What do you think AP? How many of these questions can we say the Chiefs answer positively?
