Kansas City: Second-year coach Gunther Cunningham used a lot of young players this season, but it might be his successor who benefits the most. Team president Carl Peterson insisted only two weeks ago that Cunningham will return next year, but certainly qualified those remarks by reserving the right to review the situation. Cunningham might be the league's tightest-wound coach and the message might be falling on deaf ears in the locker room. The bet here is that the Chiefs make a change.
