Good morning Chiefs fans and welcome to Tuesday. It's a pretty good day for Kansas City Chiefs news considering we are in the dark days of the offseason. Enjoy.

Even as six Chiefs prepare for Sunday’s Pro Bowl game, the postseason honors keep rolling in.

This time, Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe were the ones honored. Charles was chosen first-team All-Pro running back by the Associated Press. Charles finished second in the NFL in rushing with 1,467 yards and had a phenomenal 6.4 yards-per-carry average.

Bowe was a second-team wide receiver. He caught 72 passes for 1,162 yards and led the NFL with 15 receiving touchdowns.

I was sitting at home on a lazy Saturday evening watching the 2010 Kansas City Chiefs year in review video at when something occurred to me.

The Chiefs really are being built the right way.

This may not come as a big surprise to any of you as the team just had it's biggest single season turnaround in franchise history but for me, it is the way the team turned things around that mattered.

The Associated Press' NFL All-Pro Team was released Monday, and there was only one Longhorn on it: Kansas City Chiefs tailback Jamaal Charles. No surprise there: Charles was the second-leading rusher in the NFL, and the only one who ran for more yards -- Texans' Arian Foster -- was the other All-Pro running back.

Charles rushed for 1,467 yards this season, averaging a whopping 6.4 yards per carry average. This is his first All-Pro selection. He led the Chiefs to the playoffs. In case you missed it, here's an excellent read on Charles from our own Kevin Robbins earlier this month, on the day of the Chiefs-Ravens wildcard game.

Even though they haven't won a Super Bowl since the year my dad was born, I am still rooting for them every Sunday. Even though they have disappointed the Chiefs Nation many times over the past couple of decades, I will never wash my hands of them. Why? Because it's called love of the game, and hometown pride. Being there for your team, whether they are winning or not.

Now with the formalities out of the way, I'm sitting here trying to figure out how the Chiefs will pull off a win in half of their games next year. Most of my friends are Chiefs fans, and they obviously won't like this or agree with it, but I think 2010 was a mirage. I'm almost positive 2010 was a mirage, Here's why:

In 2009, Todd Haley's first year as coach, he called the plays for the offense. The results? A 4-12 record. The six game turnaround and playoff birth this year was nice. But how did it happen?
