Two years ago the Kansas City Chiefs were in the playoffs. I thought heading into the 2012 season, the Chiefs had a chance to rebound from a down 2011 season and chase the playoffs again. I have rarely been more wrong. Last season was a disaster in Kansas City and it took down yet another coach. Andy Reid was brought in from Philadelphia as Romeo Crennel’s successor and the Chiefs have the top pick in the draft. Can a potentially exciting offseason rekindle the momentum this team had after the 2010 season? Patrick Allen, senior editor of the Arrowhead Addict blog, joined us to share his thoughts. Zoneblitz: This team had six Pro Bowlers but went 2-14. What went wrong in 2012? Allen: In the NFL, the line between being a very good team and a very bad team is often very thin. The Chiefs, I think, were just snake bit this season. I think that Romeo Crennel is just a bad coach. That, combined with a lack of talent at the QB position, just killed the Chiefs. The team played with a lack of...

Nick Foles To Be Traded?

Andy Reid made Kolb look like a real QB Juan… Right when I heard the news of Reid to the Chiefs and Kelly to the Eagles, my first though was that Andy Reid would trade for Nick Foles.  He loves the kid and the Chiefs don’t have a starter currently on the roster.  The Chiefs hold the #1 pick in the draft, but there is no QB that will garner that pick.
