But when the game and the mindless Super Bowl advertisements ends, teams like the Chiefs, who suffered one of their most difficult seasons in recent memory, need to begin the rebuild process immediately.
With the addition of Head Coach Andy Reid, General Manager John Dorsey, and a plethora of experienced coaches, the Chiefs are already light years ahead of where they were when the finished the 2012 regular season in Denver.
Now with their offseason plan taking shape the Chiefs can look toward the future. In the early stages of February, they've already identified which players (such as Wide Receiver Dwayne Bowe & Punter Dustin Colquitt) they'll attempt to re-sign from their 2012 roster before the lucrative free agent market in March.
And once those in-house veterans are retained, the Chiefs will identify which players they might be able to sign in free agency. Players like Dolphins Left Tackle, Jake Long, and Packers Wide Receiver Greg Jennings or 49ers Quarterback Alex Smith, would all make good fits for the Chiefs.
Then they'll begin the final process of deciding what to do with the 1st overall pick in April's NFL Draft. Some pundits already believe the Chiefs will trade the top pick in hopes of acquiring more draft picks.
Some though maintain that at days end, they'll take a quarterback, despite the fact there isn't one worthy of the number one overall pick. But if that does play out, there isn't a Chiefs fan that's going to be all that upset with that direction.
On the flip side acquiring more picks, certainly has its benefits. Despite having six Pro Bowl players representing the team in last weekends Pro Bowl, there are plenty of gaps this organization must fill between now and the season opener in September.
And to be fair, it's not an easy task to determine which players in specific could be on the roster to being the regular season. We can speculate, even dream, but what we know as fact is that the Chiefs have new leadership, a plan in place and men who can execute it.
I'm not sure that Chiefs fans can truly comprehend how quickly this organization has gone from the worst in the NFL to one of the best over night. With Clark Hunt opening the checkbook, Andy Reid coming to KC as head coach, and John Dorsey stepping out of the shadows of being #2 personnel man for the Packers, the Chiefs franchise has made a commitment not only to its present but to its future.
Again the proof will be in the makeup of the final roster.
But for the first time, I can truly remember the organization is on the same page. With the separation of the business side, under Mark Donovan, and the football side with Reid and Dorsey, this organization is unified!
And that's the best offseason news any of us can expect.
