KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t hired a general manager to make crucial personnel decisions. Andy Reid hasn’t hired a single assistant coach.  That hardly seemed to matter. The pressing concern, at least for those who attended Reid’s introductory news conference Monday, was what the longtime Philadelphia Eagles coach plans to do at quarterback.

The Chiefs’ biggest area of need coincides with the most important position on the field. It’s the biggest reason why the Chiefs went 2-14 last season, and why Reid was hired to replace Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs were looking for a new general manager. Reid plans to start by analyzing the quarterbacks on last season’s roster – Matt Cassel, Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi -though it likely will be discouraging.
