OK, there’s still plenty of growth potential here with Tyson Jackson and Alex Magee leading the way. In addition, it’s hard to judge defensive players properly when they so rarely are in games where the opposing offense has to take any risk. That’s because the Chiefs offense was just God-awful last year. However, when the combination of Jackson, Magee, former No. 5 overall pick Glenn Dorsey and solid veteran Ron Edwards combine to get all of three sacks, that’s just not good. Even in 3-4 scheme, it’s just not good.

He's right. It's not good. Getting pressure on the quarterback is the single biggest problem facing the Chiefs -- yes, that includes quarterback Matt Cassel.
