1. Clark Hunt: Chiefs have a coach and quarterback that can take them to Super Bowl
By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star
"Like any leader, Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt understands that he has to set a bar for his employees, and give them clear objectives.
But when it comes to the football side, one thing he does not do, however, is set a mandatory win total. Instead, he gives coach Andy Reid and general manager a larger, all-encompassing objective.
"The expectation is that we have a team that can compete for a championship every year, and to have that, you have to be building every year," Hunt said at the NFL's annual meetings this week. "I don't want to see us get in a position where we're mortgaging the future trying to win it all this year. We always want to be in a building mode."" READ MORE…
