One year later: Are the Chiefs better off without Todd Haley?

The Chiefs fired Haley a year ago (yesterday).

This post would have been a lot more timely on Wednesday because that was the one-year anniversary of the date Todd Haley was fired by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Haley coached in that game against the New York Jets on Sunday, December 11, moving the Chiefs to 5-8, and he was fired the next morning.

On that day, a statement from Clark Hunt read:

"This was a difficult decision but one that we feel is best for the future of the Chiefs. Although there have been bright spots at different points this season, we have not made meaningful progress and we felt that it was necessary to make a change."

Romeo Crennel was eventually hired. The Chiefs brought in a few free agents. They picked up their players in the draft. And they have played into December this year at 2-11.

So, let me ask. One year later, are the Chiefs any better off?
