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 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.

The offense  and the defense have already been graded out, and you can get a look at those report cards right here for the offense, and right here for the defense.

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.

A complete overhaul was made to this franchise starting with the general manager and the head coach and after this first season under the new regime, things have improved so much from the previous management team. The Chiefs showed improvement in many areas in 2013, and we can only hope to see another step forward in 2014. With 10 Pro Bowlers, the core foundation of players is already on the roster.

This team was far from perfect but the Chiefs still won 11 games. That was a pretty good season, but not a great one. The special teams play was terrific all season, and Chiefs fans have to be happy about the direction the franchise is now heading.
