Chiefs' Smith Gets Started Refining His Offense from KC Star via The Wichita Eagle

Because the players are limited to classroom work with the coaches during the first phase of the off-season program, Smith, Reid and the offensive staff are evaluating every facet of the playbook until they can get on the field.

It's never too early to start the wheels churning for change, when it comes to securing 24 votes from owners for passage. It took the late Kansas City Chiefs founder Lamar Hunt a decade to get the two-point conversion passed. And instant replay went through a stop-and-start cycle of its own.
