Next up on my continuing 2009 NFL Season Reviews is the Kansas City Chiefs, who have the 5th pick this year’s draft. Like the Rams, Lions, and Buccaneers, the Chiefs entered the 2009 season with a new head coach. They also had a new GM who brought in Matt Cassel to be his quarterback. While KC did get a signature win this year by knocking off the defending champs, they still lost many games to finish at 4-12. Still, that was a two game improvement over their previous year. Three of those four wins came after releasing Larry Johnson, who was probably their most famous player at that time. Jamaal Charles, shown above, filled in very nicely for the departed Johnson. With those signs of improvement and with changes that they made at the top of the organization, there is hope for a return to glories past.
