A couple of weeks ago, we asked our beloved AP readers what they thought were the biggest storylines of the Kansas City Chiefs 2010-2011 campaign. I threw up some of my own suggestions and many of you chimed in with more. Check out the post on it here.
With the AFC and NFC Championships within site, I figure now is as appropriate a time as any to vote on what you think the biggest Chiefs storyline of the year is.
One of the storylines I mentioned was "Worst to First" but GenericBrand made a good point about that storyline essentially encompassing all of the others. So I left that one out because it would of course be the #1 story and we want to make this interesting. I also left out making the playoffs because that's an all encompassing one too.
Despite the playoff loss two weeks ago, it was a good season to say the least. Here are the stories we're voting on:
- Matt Cassel's surging season;
- Jamaal Charles' near record breaking rushing season;
- The success of the 2010 draft picks;
- The Charlie Weis/Romeo Crennel effect;
- Weis leaving for Florida;
- The return of the Arrowhead Advantage;
- Dwayne Bowe's rise to stardom; and.
- The emergence of Derrick Johnson.
