While there are some positive areas to build on and carry into 2013, it is imperative that changes are made in order for this franchise to be successful again. Look no further than the leadership in the organization—specifically head coach Romeo Crennel.

It has already been reported that both Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli would not return to the Chiefs next season. Though the team is in denial, it would be a huge mistake to not make these changes—moves that are necessary to save a dejected fanbase.
