Twenty-eight months ago, when Brett Veach took over as the Chiefs general manager before his 40th birthday, he saw a roster dotted with both stars and holes.
This week, the Chiefs most complete team in years maybe their best team, well see prepares for a divisional round playoff game. Kansas City has now claimed consecutive first-round byes and 12-win seasons for the first time in franchise history.
Veach inherited an enviable situation. The Chiefs had a star quarterback, a rookie running back who would lead the league in rushing, two premier pass catchers and some valuable pieces on defense.
