Todd Haley Says KC Chiefs Still Have A Few Goals Left

The Kansas City Chiefs aren't done yet, apparently. Todd Haley said on the Hy-Vee Chiefs Insider show this week that winning the division was just one of multiple goals for the Chiefs in the 2010 season.

"That was our primary goal," he said of the AFC West title, "but we had some other things written down on that goal card."

So what are those other goals? Here's an idea on a few:

Jamaal Charles as NFL rushing king. Charles is 56 yards behind Houston Texans RB Arian Foster and the NFL rushing title race is coming down to these two. Todd Haley avoided last year an opportunity for Charles to make a run at the single-game rushing record. Will he give him an opportunity this time to make a run at the title? Possibly, but the problem is that Foster and the Texans play after the Chiefs.

Thomas Jones to 1,000 yards. He's 121 yards away from 1,000 on the season and I think there would be some motivation there to get two guys to 1,000 yards on the year. 121 yards would be Jones' second best day of the year.

Matt Cassel for franchise record for passing touchdowns. Cassel currently stands at 27 touchdown passes on the season and needs three more to tie Len Dawson for the franchise mark of touchdown passes in a season. Four touchdowns would break the record. Think about this: Cassel could finish the season with 30 touchdown passes and five interceptions. Incredible.

8-0 at home. This one's obvious. I know the Chiefs want to finish 8-0 at home. That's an intimidating number if you're moving on to host a playoff game in round one. After every home game, we are guaranteed to hear at least one player thank the fans for their support. 1-7 at home in 2009 to 8-0 at home in 2010? Yeah, I'll take it.

Beating Oakland. The Chiefs don't like to make the same mistakes twice and that's a reason they've been so successful this year. So they lost to Oakland earlier this year and now they want to right a wrong and beat them.
