The Chiefs are easily the worst team in the NFL—and by a lot.
Forget that they've been outscored 89-10 in their first two games.
Forget that the Lions were running up the score on 4th-and-goal against them.
That's all bad.
But the Chiefs' players are all dropping like flies. Jamaal Charles is reportedly out for the season after getting injured in Detroit. Their star tight end Tony Moeaki is also on the IR and out for the season.
On the defensive side, safety Eric Berry is done, too.
The Chiefs also lost Charlie Weis to the University of Florida over the offseason, and this has really affected Matt Cassel's game.
But most of all, the reason why the Chiefs have the best shot at Luck is because of their schedule.
There is a five-week stretch in November and December where they play at New England, home against Pittsburgh, at Chicago, at the Jets and home against Green Bay. This may be the knockout punch that sends them to the abyss and helps them land Luck.
It's also important to note that other teams competing for Luck have some winnable games on their schedules this year.
The Seahawks are in the weak NFC West, and they've historically been a fantastic home team. They'll win a few games.
Kerry Collins will eventually learn the Colts' offense, and they'll be able to win a few games as the season progresses.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, are slowly losing respect for their head coach who has never played in the NFL, and the fact that he's never played in the league is already an easy way to lose respect in the locker room. This, combined with a tough schedule and a plethora of injuries, will allow the Chiefs to have the opportunity to draft Luck and revitalize their franchise for the next decade.
Sometimes finishing last ain't all that bad.
