The Kansas City Chiefs were 2-14 in 2012, but former head coach of the team and current ESPN analyst Herm Edwards thinks that KC could be a surprise playoff team.

Herm was on Sports Center today and was asked which team he thought might be a surprise playoff entrant.

And Herm said the Chiefs.

Now, those of us in Chiefs Nation know that the Chiefs have a talented roster, but to the uninitiated, Kansas City is a team of scrubs that went 7-9 and 2-14 the last couple of seasons.

Here is some of the reaction on Twitter to Herm’s prediction:

Well, if Herm says it then it must be true. Heck, the Chiefs could even be heading to the Super Bowl.

What do you think, Addicts? Is Herm’s prediction correct? Will the Chiefs face doubters all season long, even if they start winning?
