The Chargers have re-signed their long snapper and will on Tuesday consummate a deal with their placekicker.

Answer that, Kansas City!

Oh, wait. That’s right.

The Chiefs have in recent weeks traded for a new quarterback, signed their No.1 receiver to a long-term deal, placed the franchise tag on their sought-after left tackle and brought in a veteran cornerback.

Two teams in the AFC West have new men running the show.

So far, just one of them seems to be doing things differently -- as in, getting things done.

A few words of caution:

Andy Reid, who is the new head coach and the guy behind the personnel curtain in Kansas City, made a splash signing veterans in Philadelphia two years ago that resulted in a belly flop.

Alex Smith, bless his Helix Highlander heart, is safe but not a savior at QB. Dwayne Bowe is an extreme talent who is a risk to disappear at any time. Branden Albert is good but no better than a second-tier left tackle. Dunta Robinson is 31 and was released by the Atlanta Falcons.

But those are moves that indicate a desire to win now and a commitment to winning in the future.

Meanwhile, the Chargers are working at a slower pace.

Patience is virtuous, except when it’s plodding.

The populace is restless, and so are the veteran players who have experienced the highs here and are fed up with the low of the past three seasons.

“WT (redacted) are we doing?” read one (of numerous) texts I received from Chargers players this week.
