Chiefs owner Clark Hunt dropped in with Bob Fescoe on 610 Sports this morning and talked all things Chiefs. Specifically, Hunt talked about the Chiefs goals in 2010 and beyond.
"I would like us to be competing for a playoff spot this year," he said. "And, hopefully, the year after that is more [than just a playoff spot]."
He said competing for the playoffs is the goal in 2010. The avenue to winning playoff games is first finding good football players. Notice that's good football players and not necessarily just good character guys. Character is an essential component but they want to find good football players who happen to have good character, he says.
He also said in light of Roger Goodell's emphasis on the player conduct policy the Chiefs spend a lot of time developing the players from a personal standpoint, as well as a physical standpoint.
"We feel really good about the roster," he said. "We were able to fill some needs in the draft and earlier in free agency." He also described the rebuilding process -- the first time the Chiefs have really done this in two decades -- as "painful."
"I'd like to never be in a rebuilding mode," he said. "I'd rather it be a building mode."
Rest assured, Chiefs fans. The owner, self-described as one of the biggest fans out there, isn't content with the status quo.
I'll have more on Hunt's interview throughout the day.
