The experts of NFL.com have released their way-too-early rankings for the 2010 NFL season. The Kansas City Chiefs average in at 27, according to the panel of seven various NFL.com and NFL Network personalities.
The lowest ranking was 31st from long-time NFL man Gil Brandt. A tad rough on the team from KC? A little bit.
The highest ranking? Mr. Jason LaCanfora (who immediately jumps into pool of favorably viewed analysts in this space).
He put the Chiefs at 21.
Ahead of the Denver Broncos (23) and just behind the 2009 Super Bowl loser Arizona Cardinals (20).
Ideally, the Chiefs blow past that No. 21 ranking and into the top half of the league with a solid showing in 2010. But considering the results they've shown on the field in 2009-10, 21 may be a little optimistic.
Former Chiefs fanboy Joe Theismann ranked the Chiefs 28th. The fans pretty much agree with the experts averaging the Chiefs 28th out of the 32 NFL teams.
