Yep, they were right: Haley's lost the team!


Of course I am kidding with my headline, but I think this bares mentioning:  During last season there were many in the media (most vocal were Whitlock and Lombardi) who were criticizing Haley's coaching style, saying that if he yelled and screamed he would lose the team.  We debated that here on AP quite a bit.  (Oddly, it seems most of the bashers only showed up after losses and seemed to think Haley/Pioli were failing at turning the Chiefs around in 6 weeks.  I remember one guy in particular that no matter how much evidence was produced about Fitzgerald, Boldin and Warner loving Haley, the dude just wouldn't believe it.)

Skip ahead a few months and here we are at OTAs with the Chiefs having perfect attendance.  That includes their two players union reps, who will often skip OTAs on general principle.  Word out of Arrowhead is that the first real Haley-led offseason is going about as well as it possibly could.  Last week Haley commented he wished the league would spot his team four wins next year for having the best offseason in the NFL.  I think it's safe to say at this point that not only hasn't Haley lost the team, the exact opposite has occurred.  The team seems to have totally bought into Haley's vision and philosophy for the Chiefs' future.  There mass mutiny Whitlock and others predicted simply hasn't happened.  If Haley was a useless, rage filled prick I don't think it's possible he could have hired Weis and Crennel (both guys had plenty of other options besides KC) or signed Thomas Jones to essentially be a backup.  

I've said this before and I will admit it if the future proves my prediction wrong, but I think Haley's name will go down with Stram and Schottenheimer as Chiefs coaching legends.
