Never let it be said I'm above eating my own words.
Three days after I laid into the Chiefs for their lack of activity in free agency's opening days, Kansas City launched into a spending spree both sensible and aggressive.
The eerie quiet at Arrowhead while other teams entertained high profile unrestricted players (and a few restricted as well) caused some unease among fans and left at least this sports columnist doubting the plan to rebuild one of the most moribund NFL franchises in recent history—and the people behind said plan.
General manager Scott Pioli, throughout this entire offseason, has demonstrated the football savvy and business acumen which helped craft a championship dynasty in New England.
Now he's looking to do it again in Kansas City.
Super Bowls are never won in the offseason, but the Chiefs are winning fans over now. And considering the similarly "eerie quiet" that reigned inside Arrowhead Stadium last year, the return of that passionate "Sea of Red" which rattled walls and opposing teams alike could be the biggest acquisition of all.
