Herm Predicts Chiefs Hold Off Chargers For AFC West Title

Something we can all agree on with Herm Edwards. The former Kansas City Chiefs coach was asked the question on ESPN's NFL Live:

Can the Chargers overtake the Chiefs in the AFC West?

"No, I think the Chiefs are built for what's getting ready to happen," Herm said on Thursday.

I love that line: Built for what's getting ready to happen. I don't know why, but I love it. Mostly because, well, it just may be true.

"The weather is going to change," Herm continued. "They can run the football. They do a lot of good things defensively. They don't let you score a lot of points.

"Offensively, now they become a little bit two-headed. They can run it but also pass it now Dwayne Bowe has come into the picture. Matt Cassel has come into the picture. They can go on the road and win. They don't turn the ball over. They're a very consistent football team."

"[Philip] Rivers has put that team on his back," Herm says, "they're making their run and I think it's going to fall a little bit short."

That Herm Edwards is a smart man. Of course it doesn't hurt there are quite a few players on this team he's familiar with and understands the impact -- or in the case of his time there, the potential -- they possess.
