Denver and Kansas City headlines

Posted by ESPN.com's Bill Williamson


The key to Denver's defense is getting turnovers.

My take: The Broncos had a league-low 13 turnovers in 2008. Turnovers have been an issue for Denver in recent seasons. This has not exactly been a big-play defense. Can it change? Well, the secondary is better, but the front seven is still lacking. Without a stout pass rush, Denver's defensive backs may have trouble getting interceptions. While it is a big issue, Denver still may be a long way from solving its turnover issue.

Kansas City

The Kansas City Star breaks down the Brian Waters situation.

My Take: The video take by Chiefs beat writer Adam Teicher is right on. Waters may want out, but unless Kansas City general manager Scott Pioli wants to trade or release him, Waters will be stuck. Pioli will hold his ground. If he wants Waters in Kansas City, Waters will stay in Kansas City no matter how the Pro Bowl guard feels about it.
