Although we are one week into the offseason, general managers, coaches, scouts and players don't take a day off. While they may not be together the entire offseason, players are getting their workouts in while franchise employees, coaches and members of the front office devise a strategy on how to improve for the 2012 season.
Scott Pioli is entering his fourth year as the Chiefs general manager, and this offseason will be an important one for him as he has a lot to prove. Is this the year where Pioli can earn everyone's respect and approval rating after a huge step back in 2011?
Pioli has a strong reputation, and it is anticipated that he can help Kansas City be a successful franchise. He is known to be a good evaluator of talent and has come away with some very strong draft picks before.
This year, Pioli hopes to construct a strong draft class that can help the team win back the AFC West and get its second postseason appearance in three years.
