The injuries to Jamal Charles and Eric Berry have essentially ended any hope the Chiefs had in 2011.
Fans are beginning to clamor for a suck-for-luck campaign, and maybe the best thing the franchise can do is just stay calm and wait to see what kind of pick they get in the 2012 draft.
However, the Chiefs have one of the most passionate fanbases in all of football, and they would not be very happy with a 2-14 or 3-13 season.
If there is a trade to be made for Hillis, especially a trade that would keep hated rival Denver from acquiring him, then I think it makes sense for Kansas City to step up.
Hillis could be insurance for the Chiefs if Charles isn't able to return to his former self. Hillis and Charles could also form one of the more dynamic backfields in NFL history, on par with Alstott and Dunn in Tampa Bay.
If I'm Kansas City, I offer Cleveland a second and fourth round pick for Hillis.
