Todd Haley Replacement Talk Starts Early This Year

I'm not even sure what to think. I want to say that Kansas City Chiefs fans and the local and national media is overreacting to an 0-2 start but, after looking at the Chiefs recent performances, it's hard not to think those people are accurate when they say there's trouble brewing in Kansas City.

The latest example comes from multiple reporters already talking about who can replace Todd Haley as the Chiefs head coach if the car doesn't get turned around headed in the right direction.

Peter King of SI.com brought up Romeo Crennel and Maurice Carthon as potential replacements. Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports suggested Josh McDaniels. The pregame shows were abuzz with the Chiefs coaching situation. People are talking already about who the next coach of the Chiefs will be.

But here are a couple questions I want to know: 

What would firing Haley midseason accomplish? Would the team be better for it in the long-term?

I'm not really sure how I feel about those. If the team continues losing at this pace, Haley's exit will be inevitable. Either way, they're going to be looking for a new coach at the end of the year, if the Chiefs don't turn it around.

If the Chiefs put together a so-so, four, five or six win season, would firing Haley in November accomplish anything? Would that be the best move for the Chiefs? I'm genuinely curious how people see this. It seems the knee-jerk move would be to fire Haley sometime this season but it's also possible that knee-jerk move is actually the best one.
