Kansas City Chiefs Preview

This is from one of SBNation's newest bloggers, the Sports Guru over at Mile High Report.  His older site, The Sports Guru is damn good as well.

Here was the preview I posted on my site, for the Chiefs...Just because I am the Bronco Blogger doesn't mean I don't take what I think is a realistic approach to my predictions....

The crying is over. After 5 years of trying to get the Kansas City Chiefs over the hump and back to the Super Bowl for the first time in forever, Dick Vermeil finally called it quits. Thus began a curious chain of events that lead to a trade with the New York Jets, a 4th round pick for Head Coach Herm Edwards. Edwards started his coaching career in the Chiefs organization and his relationship with Chiefs GM Carl Peterson goes back to college. Rumors of Edwards arrival in K.C. started even before the 2005 season finished. Edwards denied the rumors dozens of times, the last 2 days before he was standing on a podium at Arrowhead Stadium. Edwards left a team in shambles, and comes to a team that is trying to win with a core group of players on the wrong side of 30. If the Chiefs are going to win, Edwards needs to bring defense back to K.C. How quickly they pick up the scheme will determine if the Chiefs get back to the playoffs.
