Last year the lackluster performance of the Kansas City Chiefs left much to be desired by fans. The Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL, and for the fourth year since 2008, they finished dead last in the AFC West. But despite a 2-14 record, they still managed to send six players to the Pro Bowl. So maybe it wasn’t the lack of talent that led to such a disappointing season but coaching. Well this year they have a new coach in Andy Reid. Reid is starting his first season away from the Eagles, and hopes are high for the possibilities in Kansas City. Aside from the Denver Broncos, the Chiefs are possibly the most talented team in the division, and with the addition of Alex Smith their quarterback carousel may have finally found a stopping point. Realistic expectations for this team are a second place finish in the division and an 8-8 record. The team will struggle to find their identity early on but by the mid-point in the season they should be running on all cylinders and finish the season strong. However they still have a few years until they get all the pieces in place and become a playoff contender.
