OK, here's the deal.(I am not a Chiefs fan BTW). People in this area whined and complained to get rid of Carl Peterson, and I'll agree, he needed to go. He'd run his course and demonstrated that he was completely incapable of putting a Super Bowl caliber team on the field.
But, it is nuts to think that a new GM and head coach can take that botch job that Carl and Hot Air Herm left here and turn it into a championship team overnight. They did go out and get a quarterback who will serve as a cornerstone to build on. He is making some smart moves. But, you need an offensive line that can protect him, and the Chiefs aren't there yet. You need a defense that will smother opponents, the Chiefs aren't there yet.
I think the new front office / coach will be able to get this thing right, but it is going to take a couple of drafts to get it there. I know Chiefs fans are hungry for a playoff win, but you got to let this thing build.
Look at the Redskins and the 3 ring circus Dan Snyder has turned that organization into with his 3 year old temper tantrum mentality. That's a trainwreck that is going to take 10 years to clean up once Dan takes his hands off of it.
I think if KC fans support this thing while it grows, they are in for a real treat in the near future. You have an owner that will spend the money for the right person. You have a GM that has proven he can build a winner with this type of owner. And, you have a coach who took that disaster in Arizona to the Super Bowl. The coach is a team builder. He will get these guys to play like a team. The sky is a limit from there.
