Chiefs chairman Hunt looks forward to next season


By RANDY COVITZ
The Kansas City Star

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt is understandably pleased with the hirings of new head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey. After all, Hunt selected them.

But Hunt is equally excited with another new addition to the Chiefs coaching staff — special-teams coordinator Dave Toub.

“I think we really have a chance to take a step forward in special teams,” Hunt said Friday upon arriving in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII. “I grew up with the Chiefs during a period of time in the 1980s when Frank Gansz was the special-teams coach … widely regarded as one of the best in the league at that time and maybe one of the best ever.

“You can think back to some of those seasons in the ’80s, when we won a lot of games with special teams. Well, that’s the mentality that the team is going to have with the new leadership. It’s something Andy believes in. Instead of trying not to make mistakes, we’re going to go out on special teams and try to win football games.”

The Chiefs have not returned a kickoff for a touchdown since the 2009 season or a punt for a touchdown since the 2010 season opener.

Toub was a very well-regarded special-teams coach during his nine seasons with the Chicago Bears. Chicago’s Devin Hester became the NFL’s all-time leader in kick-return touchdowns with 18, including a record 12 punt returns.

After returning from the Senior Bowl last week, Reid, Dorsey and the new assistants have been poring over tapes of the Chiefs’ 2-14 season.

“Andy has been very consistent,” Hunt said. “He thinks we have a lot of talent on the football team. He clearly understands there are things that have to be fixed. We have to be better offensively. That’s going to start with the quarterback position. He has to have better play from the quarterback. That’s one of his main focuses right now and will be through the spring.”

When he was hired, Reid said he wanted to fully evaluate quarterbacks on the roster — Matt Cassel and Ricky Stanzi — before deciding on his next plan of action.

“He’s not made a decision on those guys,” Hunt said of Cassel, who lost his starting job to Brady Quinn last year, and Stanzi, who has yet to play in a game in two years. “He’ll have a chance later this spring to see them in person. He’s had a chance to look at them on tape. I know he’s spent a lot of time focused on the young quarterbacks who will come out in the draft as well as thinking about other possibilities as to how we can improve ourselves at that position.”

The Chiefs could take a quarterback with the first overall pick in the draft if they believe the right player is there.

“It’s exciting to have the No. 1 pick,” Hunt said. “We don’t ever want to have it again because of the season you have to have to get there. It creates a lot of possibilities for us. There’s probably not that franchise quarterback who will be sitting there like there was last year, but still, with that No. 1 pick, you have a lot of options in terms of trades or just taking a player who can really help you upgrade.”

Hunt, who lives in Dallas, said he pays more attention to the Chiefs than many people think.

“The last four or five years after my father passed away, I do spend a lot of my time, in that case speaking with the general manager … thinking through the strategy of who do we need to re-sign, how can we get better at this position?” he said.

Now, with both Reid and Dorsey reporting directly to him, Hunt plans to keep an even stronger pulse on the organization.

“With the change in our reporting structure,” Hunt said, “it will probably be more so because I’m having those conversations with both John and Andy. I want our fans to understand I care. There was a feeling in (Kansas City) that I didn’t care. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

When was the last time a team came out in Jan/Feb and stated who they were going to pick...Even Peyton Manning wasn't the for sure pick if i remember correctly.

And if they **** this up, my ST's will be up for sale on Ebay/CL within seconds.
Agreed.

I get the frustration and concern (given the Chiefs history of not drafting QB's), however what Clark or anyone from the Chiefs is saying on February 1st means nothing.

Hell, the week prior to last years draft there were still debates on if the Colts were going to take Luck or RGIII.

It's far too early to be worrying about what these guys say. The real rumors will start to fly after the combine and during the pro days.

ha, well why not put matty c on the roster with them, since this seems more likely to become reality than just about every other scenario. then vomit launch.

I still believe Geno Smith is the right choice, I'm just discussing the option because it's being brought up quite a bit in circles everywhere. Star is going to be a good player, I think. He can play 34 or 43 and do a lot for any defense. But, Geno is going to be the right guy for the Chiefs and this WCO style offense.

He can move, bootleg passes are routine for Geno. He is very accurate in the short passing game and has a fairly quick release -- two very important components to Reid's WCO game. I really like his short pass release because it is very high and his trajectory puts the ball into the ground which cuts down the INT factor, but the passes are very catchable. He's got arm too. He can push the ball downfield.


If they don't pull the trigger on Geno I believe a few QB's being touted as 1st rounders are going to slide back to the 2nd round or even 3rd.

We are gonna let a similar player to Star walk this offseason...Dorsey is a premier run stuffer and doesn't offer a whole lot as a pass rusher.

Sounds like Stars skill set, to me.

Hell, I'd go as far as to say that Dorsey was a better prospect coming out, too...he may be a better player than Star RIGHT NOW, too.

I say bring Glenn back. They simply cannot trot out Rapeatitty or blow the number one on the position.

Not sure if I should be just a little mad, or full blown pissed off.
I noticed that as well. We have to wait to see if this is a smokescreen or not.

The ONLY player we could chose (that isn't a QB) from this class that wouldn't create a logjam at a position would be milliner...it's a shame Pioli let Carr walk.

Dorsey and Star as similar players
Joeckel and Albert are, too

A QB HAS TO BE THE PICK.

I fully expect them to bring back Dorsey on a 1 or 2 year deal. Moving to a 1 gap defense, he could be a huge asset as a 1 gap nose.

But your post reeks of arrogance and self-delusion. You aren't part of a group of "men" who can tell Clark Hunt to back the ****. You don't have any work to do.

I want the Chiefs to draft Geno Smith. But I think Clark Hunt has done a hell of a job the last month of purging the cancer from the organization and hiring great people. Give him a little ****ing credit and don't act like a total douche if the Chiefs decide to pass on Geno Smith. I swear, I haven't seen a goup of posters so ****ing obsessed with a college quarterback since Mecca and the other drafturbaters swore up and down that the Chiefs were total ****ing morons for not drafting Mark Sanchez.

I forget, how is Sanchez working out again?

Geno Smith obviously has much better credentials and a much better skillset than Sanchez did. But he's not a sure thing. Lots of guys look like absolute studs running the spread offense in college, yet turn out to be busts.

Now go ahead and say you were simply speaking rhetorically and you don't personally believe that you as an individual are part of that group of men you referred to. That's obvious. I just get a little tired of the negativity around here sometimes. 100% negativity towards Scott "Team Killer" Polio is fine. He earned it. But Clark Hunt is busting his ass trying to do the right things, and he deserves better.

I think Sanchez would have turned out better if in not such a big market as New York I was on the fence about drafting him. I want nothing to do with him. I want Geno.

I'm pretty sure CP told me Dorsey would suck as a 1-gap NT.

I don't think he believes it will happen.

But I think he's still playing the "meh" game at 1 in hopes someone will chug some purple drank on draft day...
This is my thinking as well. After what Washington gave up last year to get RG3. But I still want Geno, and no Cassel on this team.
