As Husain Abdullah and Mike DeVito have retired, Sean Smith has gone to Oakland and Justin Houston has undergone knee surgery, I find it hard to argue that the Chiefs defense is currently doing anything but regressing. However, on this episode, I look at two differing perspectives on what the Houston injury means to the team.

On the positive side of player movement, the NFL Draft is almost here, and mock drafts are starting to develop a consensus for the position the Chiefs will target in the first round.

We begin a discussion that we should be having from now until February: what is holding the Chiefs back from being considered the favorite in the AFC West, the AFC, or the NFL? What is keeping the Chiefs from being a true Super Bowl contender?

Plus, in a segment that will certainly upset no one: why it’s irresponsible to talk about Doug Pederson and how the Chiefs have handled their mascot better than Washington or Cleveland.

All of that and much more on this episode of Roughing the Kicker.
