The Kansas City Chiefs have come a long way under Todd Haley the last couple of years not just on the field, but off of it as well.
Before his first season as head coach, the Chiefs were listed as 60-1 to win the Super Bowl. That number actually went up before last season to 100-1.
Now that they have a 10-win season and a division championship under their belt, the Chiefs odds are now sitting at 35-1 for the 2011 season. Not a bad jump in a few short years.
Even with their improvement, the Chiefs still find themselves behind the San Diego Chargers in the AFC West. Philip Rivers and the Chargers lead the way for the division at 12-1. Kansas City is second, followed by the Oakland Raiders at 50-1 and the Denver Broncos round out the AFC West at 60-1.
Very interesting to see the Chiefs again behind the Chargers, considering which team hosted a playoff game and which one went home after Week 17. At the same time, no matter the order, I expected to see all of the AFC West with a little bit longer odds with a much tougher slate of games outside of the division on tap.
