The Kansas City Chiefs are entering the 2013 NFL season with high expectations, according to new starting QB, Alex Smith.

KC got its training camp underway yesterday, although an abbreviated version with only rookies, QBs and a few select veterans in attendance.

“The entire locker room is hungry,” said Smith to reporters yesterday. “Expectations are high and I think that’s a good thing. The fun thing now is that we’ll put the pads on and get to playing real football.”

The Chiefs entered the 2012 season with high expectations as well. The team was coming off a seven win season in 2011. Normally seven wins is nothing to get excited about but the Chiefs accomplished the feat without the services of Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki and QB Matt Cassel. A few free agency and draft upgrades, in addition to the returning players, had some analysts picking the Chiefs to go to the Super Bowl.

So of course, the Chiefs finished with the worst record in football.

The talent is there and it is good that the Chiefs didn’t allow 2012 to crush their spirit.

Hopefully the team can live up to expectations in 2013.
