The Chiefs found a 300-pound rose admid their stinky start

Chiefs fans haven't had much to cheer about through a five-game losing streak.

They should rise together to applaud Allen Bailey, though. On a team chock full of underperforming stars, he's been the surprise All-Pro candidate.

Consider the sacking talent on this Chiefs team with Justin Houston et. all. But Bailey, a 3-4 defensive end, currently has more quarterback takedowns than his newly-extended linebacking teammate.

And Houston doesn't play the run nearly as well as Bailey does. He leverages his gigantic, 6-foot-3 frame for a bull rush that few NFLers can block.

Bailey was extended at a minimal rate last offseason. It could be a steal of a deal to team him with a healthier Dontari Poe for years to come.
