Chiefs Links: Chiefs appear headed for big turnaround

Todd Haley admits he had only glanced at the new hardback sitting on his office desk.

Not that Kansas City’s head coach could get much more out of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team than what he has already experienced firsthand.

The Chiefs were among the NFL’s most backward franchises before Haley and general manager Scott Pioli arrived in February 2009. The struggles continued last season with a 4-12 record and 16th consecutive year without a playoff victory.

Haley describes the difference in his team from this time last season as “night and day.” Quarterback Matt Cassel took it one step further.

“The sun has come out and there’s not a cloud in the sky,” he said.

But based on what has recently transpired, this story may ultimately have a happy ending. The Chiefs are poised to turn the page after bolstering their roster and coaching staff.
