Is Haley taking a page out of the Vermeil playbook?

Looking at our offense this offseason has gotten just about every Chiefs fan on the edge of his seat.  But doesn't look a little familiar?  Let's start with the QB.  Coach Haley brings in Matt Cassel, a guy that has seen some success but has never been considered a premier guy.  Trent Green was much the same coming into KC.  At RB we have a dominant outside runner in Jamaal Charles and a great between the tackles hard nose guy.  Sounds a lot like Priest Holmes and (a young) Larry Johnson.  Our O-Line under Dick Vermeil was based on a set of veterans with some solid young players to fill the gaps.  Enter Casey Weigmann and Ryan Lilja.  At WR the Chiefs never had a dominant guy but relied on a combination of a steady veteran and a potential playmaker with Eddie Kennison and a number of players lining up opposite of him.  Now we have Chambers and Bowe.  Our TE was possibly the greatest in the history of the game in Tony Gonzalez.  Now we bring in Tony Moeaki, a guy that people have doubts about (as they did Tony), but was possibly the most complete TE in the draft.  Haley has even gone so far as to add our own X factor in Dexter McClusterDante Hall anyone?

Of course there are some differences and not every player matches up perfectly.  But you have to admit.  The similarities are very interesting.
