“The Chiefs are definitely in the Super Bowl mix,” asserts sports scribe Craig Glazer.
“I mean they have Alex Smith at quarterback. Name an elite quarterback you’d rather have. Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger? He’s o-4. Eli Manning‘s 0-5 and the Chiefs beat him. And there’s another elite quarterback that threw for 500 yards last Sunday – Dallas quarterback Tony Romo – and his team is 2-3 and the Chiefs beat them.
“So there are three elite quarterbacks that the Chiefs have better records than and the Chiefs beat two of them. Is Alex Smith better than those guys? No, he’s not, but he’s not as far below them as some people might think. He just doesn’t have the weapons those guys have, but he’s got a lot better defense.”

“Don’t kid yourself, the Chiefs are a dangerous team,” Glazer says. “Are they going to win the Super Bowl? Probably not. But I mean, the Chiefs are playing as a team like they haven’t since all the way back to Hank Stram.”
