The Kansas City Chiefs are, by most standards, enjoying a great start to the NFL offseason. Free agency has yet to begin and the NFL Draft is still nine-plus weeks away, but compared to other teams clearing house this winter, the Chiefs have fared very well on the surface.

It's easy to feel great about the team's early moves to overhaul the front office and coaching staff. Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel were replaced by John Dorsey and Andy Reid respectively, a duo that most believe provide the team with a great foundation for the future. Both have experienced long-term success in the NFL and come with impressive credentials. While other teams fumbled through one interview after another, the Chiefs' search seemed precise and calculated.

But how meaningful is that perception?
