Welcome to this week’s edition of Let’s Argue!

Let’s Argue is a weekly series that looks at hot takes, unpopular opinions, wacky predictions and more from Kansas City Chiefs fans.


Don’t take wide receivers with the first three picks

I totally understand the premise of this tweet, because there are obvious holes on the Kansas City defense — mainly with pass rushers and secondary players.

But as long as Patrick Mahomes is the quarterback and Andy Reid is the head coach, I’m always going to be for adding weapons to the offense. I’m of the belief that you can never have enough.

All in all, I’d be pretty surprised if the Chiefs don’t take a receiver with one of their first three draft picks.

The AFC still runs through Arrowhead

Well, technically Brady is correct.

According to Las Vegas oddsmakers, the Chiefs are still the favorite to win the stacked AFC West. Despite the addition of Russell Wilson, Davante Adams, Khalil Mack, etc., the division still runs through Mahomes and company.

Now... in general, the AFC has never been this deep and talented. But until the Chiefs aren’t in the AFC Championship game, the conference still runs through them.

The Chiefs’ defensive line is probably the league’s least talented

When evaluating all of the position groups on the Kansas City roster, it’s fair to say the defensive line is the least talented group on the team.

Is it the least talented in the league?

I can’t go that far — because Chris Jones is arguably the second-best defensive tackle in the game. Only the Los Angeles Rams’ Aaron Donald stands above him.

We’re past peak Mahomes — and we’ll soon regret his cap number

Looks like I saved the best tweet for last.

In all seriousness, we have to do better.

I understand: Mahomes has already accomplished so much. But we have to understand that he’s only 26 years old. He’s only going to get better.

Now, regarding his cap number...

Mahomes’ contract is already looking like a bargain in comparison to other quarterbacks. I mean, Deshaun Watson just got $230 million guaranteed.
