Chiefs chairman Hunt looks forward to next season


By RANDY COVITZ
The Kansas City Star

Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt is understandably pleased with the hirings of new head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey. After all, Hunt selected them.

But Hunt is equally excited with another new addition to the Chiefs coaching staff — special-teams coordinator Dave Toub.

“I think we really have a chance to take a step forward in special teams,” Hunt said Friday upon arriving in New Orleans for Super Bowl XLVII. “I grew up with the Chiefs during a period of time in the 1980s when Frank Gansz was the special-teams coach … widely regarded as one of the best in the league at that time and maybe one of the best ever.

“You can think back to some of those seasons in the ’80s, when we won a lot of games with special teams. Well, that’s the mentality that the team is going to have with the new leadership. It’s something Andy believes in. Instead of trying not to make mistakes, we’re going to go out on special teams and try to win football games.”

The Chiefs have not returned a kickoff for a touchdown since the 2009 season or a punt for a touchdown since the 2010 season opener.

Toub was a very well-regarded special-teams coach during his nine seasons with the Chicago Bears. Chicago’s Devin Hester became the NFL’s all-time leader in kick-return touchdowns with 18, including a record 12 punt returns.

After returning from the Senior Bowl last week, Reid, Dorsey and the new assistants have been poring over tapes of the Chiefs’ 2-14 season.

“Andy has been very consistent,” Hunt said. “He thinks we have a lot of talent on the football team. He clearly understands there are things that have to be fixed. We have to be better offensively. That’s going to start with the quarterback position. He has to have better play from the quarterback. That’s one of his main focuses right now and will be through the spring.”

When he was hired, Reid said he wanted to fully evaluate quarterbacks on the roster — Matt Cassel and Ricky Stanzi — before deciding on his next plan of action.

“He’s not made a decision on those guys,” Hunt said of Cassel, who lost his starting job to Brady Quinn last year, and Stanzi, who has yet to play in a game in two years. “He’ll have a chance later this spring to see them in person. He’s had a chance to look at them on tape. I know he’s spent a lot of time focused on the young quarterbacks who will come out in the draft as well as thinking about other possibilities as to how we can improve ourselves at that position.”

The Chiefs could take a quarterback with the first overall pick in the draft if they believe the right player is there.

“It’s exciting to have the No. 1 pick,” Hunt said. “We don’t ever want to have it again because of the season you have to have to get there. It creates a lot of possibilities for us. There’s probably not that franchise quarterback who will be sitting there like there was last year, but still, with that No. 1 pick, you have a lot of options in terms of trades or just taking a player who can really help you upgrade.”

Hunt, who lives in Dallas, said he pays more attention to the Chiefs than many people think.

“The last four or five years after my father passed away, I do spend a lot of my time, in that case speaking with the general manager … thinking through the strategy of who do we need to re-sign, how can we get better at this position?” he said.

Now, with both Reid and Dorsey reporting directly to him, Hunt plans to keep an even stronger pulse on the organization.

“With the change in our reporting structure,” Hunt said, “it will probably be more so because I’m having those conversations with both John and Andy. I want our fans to understand I care. There was a feeling in (Kansas City) that I didn’t care. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

OK, you care about the Chiefs. I get that. You're a pretty well-informed fan and you have strong feelings about what they should do in the draft. I get that too.

But your post reeks of arrogance and self-delusion. You aren't part of a group of "men" who can tell Clark Hunt to back the ****. You don't have any work to do.

I want the Chiefs to draft Geno Smith. But I think Clark Hunt has done a hell of a job the last month of purging the cancer from the organization and hiring great people. Give him a little ****ing credit and don't act like a total douche if the Chiefs decide to pass on Geno Smith. I swear, I haven't seen a goup of posters so ****ing obsessed with a college quarterback since Mecca and the other drafturbaters swore up and down that the Chiefs were total ****ing morons for not drafting Mark Sanchez.

I forget, how is Sanchez working out again?

Geno Smith obviously has much better credentials and a much better skillset than Sanchez did. But he's not a sure thing. Lots of guys look like absolute studs running the spread offense in college, yet turn out to be busts.

Now go ahead and say you were simply speaking rhetorically and you don't personally believe that you as an individual are part of that group of men you referred to. That's obvious. I just get a little tired of the negativity around here sometimes. 100% negativity towards Scott "Team Killer" Polio is fine. He earned it. But Clark Hunt is busting his ass trying to do the right things, and he deserves better.

When Tyler Wilson is gone by the no. 3 pick, will you do us all a favor and go **** yourself with Cat AIDS? If we're going to take a QB, we better take one at no. 1.

Other than both being black, Geno Smith has nothing in common with Jamarcus Russel.

**** you Andrew Luck, for making all QB prospects appear worthless in comparison.

Sooooo tired of the no QB available bullshit when their are better prospects this year than in years past that included teams getting "franchise" guys in round 1.

We suffered through 4 years of Cassel dude. Would you rather they do the same thing again and take someone else's leftovers like they've done the last 30 years or for them to actually take a shot at drafting a legit QB? Yes, their are guys with franchise potential available, so don't use that lame ass excuse.

Of course our opinions are strong. What is the definition of insanity again? Apply that to how this team has acquired QB's. Sanchez didn't work, but acquiring Cassel was an embarrasment the day the deal was made.

The thing that annoys me the most about this, several rook QBs had successful seasons & so why not try the best to capture the same kind of results with our own rook QB #1 in the draft with the best prospect possible?

All last years draft class did is prove you can find success early on and turn things around quickly that way.

I personally don't care how they get a franchise QB - they just need to get one.

I do care how they get one. It would be a kick in the nuts if we don't draft a QBotf with our #1 pick.

How else are they going to get one other than through a high draft pick? PLEASE don't mention Foles or Cousins.

Taking a QB with the first shows conviction and trust with that pick. Taking one later shows doubt and be lucky to get the guy rather than taking a bold stance that this is our guy.

Really? If the Chiefs end up with the best QB in the draft, but they get him in the 2nd or 3rd round, you'll be mad because they could've taken a QB first overall a d didn't?

yes, he would.


he's been pouting for awhile now ... he wants a QB in the first round NO MATTER WHAT. If Matt Cassel was coming out in this years draft he would be demanding that we draft him RIGHT NOW!!

It's what happens when people lose their minds to senility

Not sure if I should be just a little mad, or full blown pissed off.
right now (excepting the notion Dorsey will pass on a 1st rnd QB), I am leaning towards Star Lotulelei becoming a Chief. He gives them the added girth and speed up front along that DL and also allows for several formations like how Balt uses their BFF's in the 34 defense.
