So with the signings of two enormous coordinators in Weis and Crennel, is Clark Hunt finally opening up his wallet this off season?

I know that these two did not come cheap, as they have a resume practically better than any and all other coordinators in the business. Maybe this will spill over to free agency, and we will be able to attract top talent, and actually offer them enough $$$ to make it worth their while.

It looks like he might be i guess we will find out when it comes time to sign free agents just how much he is willing to spend on this team. GO CHIEFS!!!!

Hopefully we have some money left over to sign some free agents...that's what I'm more worried about.

Our coordinators are indeed enormous. KC BBQ joints are going to be banking.

The Chiefs have never been cheap when paying coaches. Pioli has stated that he has no restrictions as far as spending and says he wouldn't have taken the job if there were.
IMO if you exspect him to be a huge player in the FA market, you my friends will be very dissapointed. That has not been the Pioli way and I don't exspect him to change.

True, however New England has brought in exceptional players such as Izzo, and Stallworth. Sure they are not "big" names, but they got the job done. We need to address a lot of areas via free agency, so i hope they do not shy away from spending.

Yes, the free agency period is going to be very interesting this year.

Everyone say it with me... "Wilfork"

I'd be pleased as punch with that signing.

Our coordinators are expensive, but I'd be willing to bet that Todd Haley is not, so in the end things are probably evened out and were probably close to the league average when it comes to money spent on coaching staff.

Interesting. Both our coordinators making more than the head coach.

I don't think they'll let Wilfork go. I'm sure that was the intention when letting go of Seymour, they have a few nice offensive pieces hitting the F/A market this year though. Some decent OL guys and Ben Watson would help!

San Diago has alot of free agents this year also. Dont think they will be able to keep them all if they get the CBA done. If they dont get a new CBA done, there will not be much out there worth getting.

I would rather have 22 average to good players, than I would 2 superstars that break the bank.

I agree we need to devolpe our own talent. That will make us good for a good while. Look at the team we seem to be trying to be.The Pats outside of randy moss didnt bring in big names they made there own players the big names. If anything the names left them.

If there is a big name talent that we do sign thats great for excitement during the offseason. But its no promise that that player will be great with the Chiefs.

Its defently an exciting time to be a Chief fan. The last couple of weeks have been good. Hopefuly the offseason leads to maybe a playoff game or to next season. GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!

Yes, I know a couple Broncos and Raiders fans, and stupidly, they are already to give in and claim that KC and SD will be at the top of the division.

My question to them is, what kind of fan admits defeat for the upcoming years when the other team hires a couple great coordinators?

The Chargers window to get a superbowl will close this year or next. They have to get the job done now or they wont with there current core group of players. The chiefs are comeing and they are comeing fast.

Agreed. I think many wil be surprised by how much better our defensive players suddenly get now that we have Romeo. Kind of like what happened in Denver this year.

I would not be surprised at all if the Chargers won the superbowl this year. This is the first year in the last few that they are heading into the playoffs comnpletely healthy. A healthy Rivers and LT could mean trouble for everyone. I would say that they would be my AFC pick for the superbowl. Although all 4 teams left have a legitimate chance IMO.

Well, it better; Clarkie has sunk a butt load of capital in the renovation of the stadium, and from the looks of recent home game attendance he is no where near filling that stadium.

Jamal Williams being out for the year is killing their run defense.
