After a dismal 2009 season, including a 4-12 record and the first blackout snice 1990, there is a silver lining for the Chiefs. They ended Denver's playoff hopes with a 44-24 victory.  The Chiefs have also have found a franchise running back in Jamaal Charles. Now Scott Pioli and Todd Haley have some off-season work to do.

They have started off well with the reported hiring of Offensive Coordinator, Charlie Weiss. Weiss will be successful in Kansas City, because Haley has trust in him to run the offensive.  Matt Cassel ran the offensive Weiss installed at New England, so he should be much more productive. Also, Weiss will feel comfortable with a general manager he knows very well.

Another reported story is that Romeo Crennel will become the Chiefs Defensive Coordinator. This would be another great boost for the Chief's franchise.

The Chiefs organization is changing rapidly, bringing in new players, coaches, and personnel. The Chiefs have the potential to be contenders within a few years.
