It’s where you start if you want to build a contender, in the offseason. Hiring a new general manager in John Dorsey, new coach in Andy Reid, and an influx of new players led by the arrival of quarterback Alex Smith has given the Chiefs a reason to look for light at the end of the tunnel. Reid is doing more hands on coaching and less front office work, Dorsey has been shopping for the groceries so to speak, and Smith the prized 2013 acquisition from the 49ers is setting the example of being a leader. It all comes together in CEO Clark Hunt’s mind as a successful offseason, one that can be built on further once training camp rolls around. "It's been a tremendous spring for the Chiefs," Hunt said, via Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com. "It's been great to see the guys make some progress every week, the practices were very fast-paced; there's a great energy about the team, both on-the-field and off and I think, really, everybody from the coaches, through all 90 or so players are excited about where the Chiefs are headed in 2013." "Any time you have a change like we did this offseason, the excitement level is very high and you try to temper the expectations. We do have a new staff and new players and it may take them time to gel, but we're very excited to get to the season." "John Dorsey has done a great job from the personnel side; Andy's done a tremendous job in assembling his staff and coaching these guys over the last month or so and you can just see the progress they're making, the confidence they have; it's going to be a lot of fun to be a Chiefs fan this fall."
