KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City owner Clark Hunt says he
expects the Chiefs to compete for a playoff spot next season.
Hunt made his first public comments since the Chiefs lost their
last nine games and finished 4-12. The Chiefs finished near the
bottom of the league in many offensive statistics, and the team
hasn't won a playoff game since 1993.
Hunt says he expects the Chiefs to rebuild primarily through the
draft and not sign any veteran free agents who won't spend their
best years in Kansas City.
Hunt says president and general manager Carl Peterson made the
right adjustments two years ago when he hired coach Herm Edwards
and promoted Bill Kuharich to vice president of player personnel.
