I didn't see this here, so I'll share:

Someone on another Chiefs forum posted this:

2. The Chiefs are headed in the right direction.

I cannot stress enough how much this is a big time boom.

We are not talking about the Rams, Raiders, Browns, Bucs, Redskins or Lions here. This team has the pieces in place for success.

Scott Pioli is one of the elite executives in professional sports. He's done a masterful job accumulating picks for the upcoming 2010 draft. He has found help at receiver, plucking Chris Chambers and Bobby Wade off of the scrap heap.

The team Pioli inherited was awful. Carl Peterson left the well bone-dry. And Herm Edwards as a coach? Let's just say he's much better on television. Kansas City played to win the game under Herm, but they just couldn't do it.

Pioli and Todd Haley have changed the culture and accountability. I loved the move cutting the clueless Larry Johnson, who continued to embarrass himself and the organization.

They have a quarterback in Matt Cassel. Chiefs fans will truly see it when Pioli beefs up the offensive line and weapons around him. But you can see the leadership qualities every Sunday.

I like Haley. And so does Pioli. In talking to Pioli on Sirius NFL Radio on Wednesday, the general manager stressed how well Haley has handled the various challenges of this season in Kansas City, ranging from the dismissal of Chan Gailey before the season, to the Johnson situation to Dwayne Bowe's suspension. Pioli loves Haley's drive and passion. And the overmatched Chiefs play hard for four quarters.

Take a deep breath Kansas City. If you actually pay attention to progress, accountability and the individuals in place running the team, there's a lot to look forward to.

while i agree that the Chiefs look to be headed in the right direction, i still have some big questions about Todd Haley.

right now it looks 50/50 on whether he will boom or bust. He could just as easy have this team turn on him and implode. I guess what bothers me most is that an offensive coordinator he doesn't seem to have a natural feel for play calling.

One more than the standard seven.

Which makes it ridiculous that someone would imply that Pioli is "accumulating" or stockpiling picks.

Cleveland is accumulating picks, they have 12 or 13.

We have 8.

I don't understand how anyone can say they're headed in the right direction when the team hasn't improved one iota this year.

We have matched out win total from last year and have surpassed the sack total from last year.

That's something... its not all doom and gloom.

Oh yeah... and LJ is gone.
