Nope, not what Herm and his boys did at all, hahaha. Their claim to rebuild was more of an excuse in advance of their mistakes. Hell, Carl Peterson used "we're rebuilding" as an excuse repeatedly with each losing season throughout his tenure as GM. The excuse worked for many seasons, but the man cried wolf too many times, and no one believed him anymore...as a result, he was fired.
The Chiefs organization is a completely different one now claiming to be rebuilding. Clark has taken over with the loss of Lamar (RIP), new GM, new coaches, new players as a result of the long term plan of the new GM & Coaches.
Keep in mind, that most Head Coaches were once Assistant Coaches, they all had first years, and most faced rebuilding losing teams, and most took a couple years or so to be victorious in their efforts. It's way to early to declare Pioli and Haley as failures IMO. I may sing a different tune in a couple years, but feel considering the damage Peterson & Edwards left our Chiefs in...Pioli and Haley deserve more than half a season prior to being judged.
As far as your saying it's hard to be a Chiefs fan
