Talking Chiefs With SideLion Report

ZS: Coming off a division title and a playoff appearance, what are expectations like for the Chiefs next season?

PA: Once you get to the playoffs the expectations go up big time. Anything short of another AFC West title and a playoff win will probably be considered a disappointment.

I don’t see it that way. The Chiefs are still a very young team with a lot of developing players. A lot of young, upstart teams take a big step forward and then a step back before they move forward again. I think this is usually because that initial step forward came because of an easier schedule. Sometimes Cinderella arrives a little bit early to the ball, so to speak.

I could see the Chiefs going 9-7 or even 8-8 this season and then coming back in 2012 and making it to the AFC Championship game. It just depends. The Saints missed the playoffs one year and won the Super Bowl the next. Welcome to the NFL.

A couple of weeks ago I had a chance to sit down and talk with Zac Snyder from over at SideLion Report about the Kansas City Chiefs. Zach is interviewing the editor of each team the Lions will face in 2011. What he is doing is very similar to our “Inside The Enemy Camp” series that we do during the season.

Head over to SideLion Report to check out the entire interview. SLR is one of FanSided’s best blogs and is definitely the place to go if you are looking for any info on the Lions.
