4- JOHN DORSEY: The Chiefs new General Manager made an impact right away by improving the depth of this football team. Because of the violent nature of this game, depth means more in football than any other sport. Players are constantly nicked up and can’t play every play of every game.

While Dorsey needs to be applauded for adding Alex Smith, who has brought a whole different mentality to the quarterback position, Dorsey needs to be credited for bringing in players like Sean Smith and Akeem Jordan. These players are not stars but they are steady performers that would be key to any team’s success. He added quality depth with additions like Geoff Schwartz, Frank Zombo, Quintin Demps, Dunta Robinson, Husain Abdullah, Marcus Cooper, Sean McGrath, Chase Daniel, and A.J. Jenkins.

It is very difficult to provide any team with quality back ups at all positions but Dorsey did a fantastic job filling as many spots with as many quality players as was possible. Many of these guys are not quite as good the starters, but that is why they were available in the first place. If they were stars, it is doubful they would have been on the market. One of the biggest keys between having the worst record in the NFL, and making the playoffs is quality personnel.

John Dorsey did a terrific job in his first season as General Manager. Chiefs fans should feel good about the future of this team under his direction.
