In a 2011 NFL season that promises so much instability thanks to the labor situation, the Chiefs are the picture of stability.
Haley thinks it should make a major difference once the attention of the league turns back to football.
"Our personnel department is so much more stable now, and our coaching staff," Haley said. "We've got guys that have been in place for three years and everybody knows each other so much better. Not a lot different than us knowing the players and the players knowing us; it's on that level. They now what we are looking for, they know how we go about the business.
"I would say we are a much more efficient group thanks to the experience together."

Ross overcame the humble beginnings and rough start to become one of the best cornerbacks in Chiefs history. He wound up playing in Kansas City through 1993 and returned to finish his career with the Chiefs in 1997 after three seasons away with Atlanta and San Diego.
His playing career received its final validation Thursday, when the Chiefs announced him as this year's entrant to the team's Hall of Fame.

The Steelers benefited from their 2010 class because of the stunning emergence of Pouncey, production from Sanders and sixth-round pick Antonio Brown and the play of linebackers Jason Worilds (No. 2) and Stevenson Sylvester (No. 5) on special teams.
But other teams used a lot of rookies to get into the postseason as well. The New England Patriots had the best record in the AFC with the help of four rookies -- cornerback Devin McCourty, linebacker Brandon Spikes and tight ends Rob Gronkowski (Woodland Hills High School) and Aaron Hernandez. The surprising Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West because of rookie safeties Eric Berry and Kendrick Lewis and running back Dexter McCluster.
