Examining the theories that the Kansas City Chiefs will regress in 2017

In Episode 5 of the podcast, I examine all the (many) theories as to why the Kansas City Chiefs are doomed for a regression in 2017. This has become a very common theme among certain national outlets, opposing teams' fans, and even some Chiefs fans.

Such theories include:

  • Alex Smith
  • A mediocre offense
  • The run defense
  • Strength of schedule
  • Lack of playmakers
  • Pass rush issues
  • Cornerback starters and depth
  • The departure of Dontari Poe and Jeremy Maclin
  • John Dorsey's firing

Obviously, anything can happen in the NFL, but I decided it was time to see if the theories people have for believing the Chiefs will have a "down" season in 2017 hold up under scrutiny, or if they fall apart when examined more closely
