It's March so our optimism for the Kansas City Chiefs is at an all-time high as it often is around this time of year. Adding a little fuel to the fire is this set of NFL power rankings from NFL.com's Eliot Harrison, where he ranks the Chiefs at No. 9 following the first wave of free agency.
The Chiefs are nipping at the Broncos' heels in the AFC West after adding Jeremy Maclin and Ben Grubbs. Now, we've certainly heard all the wisecracks about whether Maclin will catch a touchdown, and how no wideout in Kansas City reached the end zone last year. Not to worry; we won't exhaust that joke.
Harrison had the Chiefs ranked No. 14 at the end of last season so after all the free agency wheeling and dealings they're now a top 10 team. This is very interesting. It means nothing, of course. But I can't help but be at least a little interested where other folks perceive the Chiefs to be.
The teams ahead of the Chiefs in order: Seahawks, Patriots, Packers, Colts, Cardinals, Cowboys, Steelers and Broncos.
