While QB Matt Cassel is certainly at fault for much of the Chiefs' early-season passing woes, all the blame doesn't belong on his shoulders. Thus far, the team has not gotten significant contributions from its wide receivers, a group it hoped would be improved in 2010. However, after Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers, Kansas City doesn't have another dependable wideout on the roster, as free-agent pickup Jerheme Urban suffered a season-ending finger injury in the preseason. While head coach Todd Haley has talked about the receivers making progress in their run blocking, he doesn't think they are doing a good enough job of creating separation in their routes. While Haley, a former wide receivers coach, admittedly has high expectations for the position, their production would back up his belief. The way we hear it, wideout very well could be the first position the Chiefs address in the 2011 draft, especially with Bowe proving not to be an elite receiver and Chambers now age 32.
