    The Chiefs don’t deserve to be in the playoffs, representing the AFC West. They embarrassed themselves in the Oakland game. They are sure a hard team to understand.

    First sentence – so much BS. Second sentence – absolutely. Third – not really.

    The Chiefs had outstanding coaching all year long except for the blowout games in the AFC West. In those games, the coaches let the team down. They played the schedule the NFL gave them, the easiest in the NFL and probably more to do with why they are in the playoffs at the end. The Chiefs do not have the talent to compete against SD and oakland on a regular basis. Thie is a team without a lot of talent, even two years into the rebuild. Add no one can say this team is any good in drafting, yet. That is in general not individual players. ’09 looking more like a bust and 2nd rounders may disappear when better show up (look at NE ’10 draft, something like 4 full time starters). Pick it apart all you want, drafting is not a strong point of this team. Add my concern over just how mature Haley is and you have issues even with a playoff appearance (many like to point out how Haley’s record is so much better than herm’s but herm took the Chiefs to the playoffs and embarrassed himself – may not be a lot of difference in the long run or maybe Haley is different, to soon to tell).

    I’ll take a 10 win single season over a 10 win span of three seasons anytime. I’m happy the Chiefs have turned things around. I don’t believe either the 2008 or 2009 teams would’ve won 10 games playing the 2010 schedule.
    We’ll see how they do next year against a real schedule.
