The Kansas City Chiefs have finished their season, and the pain of the heart wrenching loss in Indianapolis has faded somewhat. It is time to reflect on the season, and appreciate just how special it was going from the team that was so awful last year that they had the number one over all pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, to finishing with the third best record in the AFC and making the playoffs.
From 2-14 to 11-5 is an amazing accomplishment. Winning is so much more fun than losing, and Kansas City fans are not always accustomed to the Chiefs winning. Despite our frustrations as to how the season ended, the turnaround itself was pretty special.
People can talk about the easy schedule, and getting to play some against some pretty mediocre to bad quarterbacks early on, but teams have no control over that. They can only win the games on the schedule.
The Chiefs did that more often than not in 2013, and following a team that is winning, and nit picking over the little things that may not have been perfect, is a whole lot better than what the fans had to endure on the field in 2012.
This team was far from perfect but the Chiefs still won 11 games. That was a pretty good season, but not a great one.
Over the next few days, we will take a look at the offense, defense, special teams, and coaching, and see what was good and not good about the 2013 season.
