ESPN.com has released their very popular offseason Power Rankings, following the initial burst of free agency.
A lot of players have changed teams and the NFL looks a lot different today than it did a few weeks ago.
The Chiefs made a big jump in the rankings, moving all the way from dead last at #32 to #24. That is what winning the offseason will get you. The Chiefs have a new GM, new head coach, new QB, new coordinators and a slew of other new players. On paper, at least, the Chiefs are better.
Thankfully, KC is not the worst-ranked AFC West team. The Oakland Raiders hold that distinction, coming in at #30.
KC is also close to catching another AFC West foe. The San Diego Chargers are only one spot above the Chiefs at #23. The Chargers have gone through some changes too this offseason so it will be interesting to see how they do in 2013.
And of course (vomits) the Denver Broncos are the #1 ranked team in the AFC West and one of the top-ranked teams in all of football. Peyton Manning and his stupid forehead come in at #3, trailing only the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks.
Interestingly, the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens are all the way down at #8, in the wake of losing a number of key players.
What do you think, Addicts? Do the Chiefs deserve the bump or should they remain the worst team in the NFL until they prove otherwise on the field?
