Titans Writer Looks At The 2010 Kansas City Chiefs

Larry Stone of Titans Radio recently previewed the 2010 Kansas City Chiefs season. The Titans and Chiefs play each other in week 16 so Chiefs fans are hoping Kansas City is in a must-win situation at that point because it would mean the playoffs -- or at least a .500 record -- are in sight.

Here's what Stone had to say about the Chiefs:

The Chiefs are getting better. Even if you wonder about the coach's ability to lead or the quarterback's ability to be a true NFL starter, you understand how building blocks like Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali and Eric Berry can help the Chiefs grow into contenders. Kansas City has a workable schedule in 2010, a fourth place schedule that includes the struggling NFC West. Get to the fourth quarter in the range of .500 and Kansas City could set itself up for 2011 with a strong finish against a schedule that includes San Diego, St Louis, Tennessee, and Oakland.

It's always interesting to see what other teams think of the Chiefs and I think Stone's thoughts represent what a lot of folks think: Good building blocks with Charles, a decent schedule and a shot to compete in 2011. The only thing missing is the beefed up coaching staff.

Most aren't looking at the Chiefs as contenders in 2010 but 2011 instead. I tend to agree with Stone that the Chiefs need a strong finish to the 2010 season to prepare themselves for a more realistic run in 2011.
