Ed.B. of the P-G agrees the biggest rebuild next year is on the defense

You cited many of the ills of the team in today's article but which one stands out the most to you as being the most damaging and in need of the most work?

Ed Bouchette: The defense, if we are looking ahead to 2014. They have potential losses at safety and defensive line (either forced or free agent) and they have problems at linebacker.

My guess is Clark, Keisel and Hood (who had few snaps Sunday) are gone in 2014, with Ike staying because he just restructured to buy some cap room. Troy will take a big pay cut and stay because he is Troy Polamalu and not James Harrison.

Missing on so many draft picks, specifically Woirlds over Sean Lee, and the rotten luck of Spence getting so badly injured has created a mess at ILB.

I do not see a Chiefs worst to first run in 2014. This will take a few years.
