The Positives Of The 2008 Kansas City Chiefs

Jordan LanningCorrespondent IFebruary 13, 2009

Coming off the worse season in Kansas City Chiefs history, I feel obligated to list some of the positives that happened for the Chiefs this season. It was difficult but here is what I have got.

Tony Gonzalez had 1,058 yards with 10 touchdowns, catching 96 balls. Gonzalez went to his eighth Pro-Bowl (all with the Chiefs, and Miami Heat).

Tyler Thigpen's efforts put him on this list. Thigpen came out of nowhere (literally nowhere) to throw for 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Thigpen's play might be able to land him a long term starting job for the Chiefs, or as a cashier for Wal-Mart.

The firing of both Carl Peterson and Herm Edwards put smiles on a lot of Chiefs fans. With the Chiefs losing 26 games in the past two years there needed to be much change. Nobody has won fewer games in the last two years then they have. That's a plus right?

There were some rookies that widened the eyes of a lot of Chiefs fans. Todd Blackledge, and Ryan Simms have been great picks for the Chiefs.

Another player that played very well was guard, Brian Waters. Waters once again made his way to the Pro-Bowl. The Chiefs sent all of two players to the Pro-Bowl.

The Chiefs cheerleaders seemed hotter than usual. Maybe that's because we had to look at them more because of how terrible it was on the field.

Larry Johnson had a very positive year. He only got sent to jail a hand full of times, which is an improvement.

The Chiefs played so well the NFL decided to give them the third overall pick in the upcoming draft.

So before you decide to make fun of the Chiefs for how bad they are, think for a second. Tomorrow is always a brighter day.
