Kansas City Chiefs: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Alex Smith

Alex Smith was taken with the first overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers in the 2005 draft after impressing in his time with Utah at college level. After a slow start to his professional career, Smith played an integral role in the 49ers rise in power, ultimately resulting in an appearance in Super bowl XLVII. Following a small run of injuries in the latter half of the 2012 season, Smith was replaced as starting Quarterback by Colin Kaepernick and was subsequently traded to the Chiefs, who benefited greatly from the senior composure offered by this former top draft pick. The Chiefs were the last unbeaten team in the 2013 NFL season with Smith winning his first nine regular-season starts, gaining 1,919 passing yards with 9 TDs compared to 4 INTs. Smith was elected to his first Pro Bowl at the end of the season as a replacement for Tom Brady. In the game, Smith led all QBs in yards, tied for most TDs, and led the game winning touchdown drive. The Chiefs have given Smith his chance to shine, and he rewarded them with success. This will be a strong partnership in 2014.

Offensive Star: Jamaal Charles

Jamaal Charles was selected with the 73rd pick of the 2008 NFL draft. Charles played backup to Larry Johnson in his rookie season and saw little game time. He split the starting duties with Kolby Smith in 2009 and had a strong season, becoming the first player in NFL history to rush for 1,100 or more yards in 200 or fewer carries. 2010 was Charles' real breakout season and he finished the season as one of the leading running backs in the NFL. He was selected for the AFC Pro Bowl side and was named NFL Ground Player of the Year. Charles lasted just one week in 2011, seriously injuring his ACL in the second game of the season. After a long rehabilitation process, Charles returned strong in 2013, making both the Pro Bowl and All-Pro for the third time. On a December 15 game against the Oakland Raiders, Charles had 195 yards receiving and rushed for 20 more while scoring five total touchdowns. It made him the first Chiefs player to score five touchdowns in a game since 1961.

Defensive Star: Eric Berry

Eric Berry was the 5th overall pick in the 2010 NFL draft after an extremely successful high school and college football career. Berry was a standout on the Chiefs defense in his rookie season. He helped the side improve to be a top ten defensive side in 2010 and played every single defensive snap. Berry led the Chiefs in interceptions and became the first Chiefs rookie since Derrick Thomas to be selected for the Pro Bowl. A torn ACL led to Berry missing the entire 2011 NFL season. Berry was one of the Chiefs few shining lights in 2012, and had a fantastic season. He has since been selected for the Pro Bowl in every full NFL season hes played in (2010, 2012, 2013). He also made his debut on the All-Pro in 2013, getting selected to first-team.

Head Coach: Andy Reid

Replacing Romeo Crennel after a horror 2-12 2012 season, Andy Reid was unveiled as the Chiefs coach on January 4th 2013. After 14 seasons at the helm of the Philadelphia Eagles, Reid decided on a change of scene and worked out a deal with Kansas City that will keep him in charge for at least five years. Struggling heavily in recent seasons, the Chiefs are likely to prosper under the guidance of a coach who has well and truly earned his stripes in the game's top division. Reid inherited a team that had finished with the worst season in franchise history and led it to a 9-0 record to start the season, tied for the best start in franchise history. The Chiefs finished the season with an 11-5 record, before bowing out in the Wild Card round of the AFC playoffs.
