07:34 PM ET 12.30 | The bad news for Kansas City Chiefs fans is that the Chiefs are not relevant as the NFL playoffs start for 12 teams. The good news is that the Chiefs are very, very relevant in the NFL's other season -- the NFL Draft. The 2013 NFL Draft order is close to being decided but we know one thing for sure: the Chiefs hold the No. 1 overall pick after losing to the Broncos on Sunday.

Reaping the rewards of the lousy is small consolation.

Is Lovie Smith fired yet?

December 30, 2012  09:22 PM ET

Fire Piloi!!

What a hollow consolation.

We're Number One!

We're Number One!

Nothing like getting a cigar and a pink slip on the same day. There will be plenty of players on Kansas City that will be given their walking papers.

Congratulations, with your Luck, you will draft a deadbeat!!!

Great pic for that thread.

I agree one hundred percent. There are no truly great quarterback prospects in the draft this year, which is what the Chiefs desperately need.

From what I've read, Pioli is staying. That could also be in the "bad news for Kansas City Chiefs fans.." category.

They could improve their odds if they parted ways with Scott Pioli.

Hail to the Chiefs!

No, wait. It's Hail to the Redskins!

Yeah, that's better.

There are conflicting reports out there. If he stays there will be a riot in KC.

Problem is, there's no Andrew Luck or RGIII this year. The Chiefs will pick a defensive player or a lineman, but they'll still be without a QB...and in the NFL, if you don't have a QB, you don't have ****.

Agree. I would approach the 49ers about Smith in trade for a 2nd round pick.

The Chiefs are probably stuck with whomever they can get from the first team that bothers to pick up the phone on a trade proposal. It's hard to imagine anybody voluntarily going to that team when coaching is unknown and there is no receiving corps to speak of.

The can always get into the bidding war over Alex Smith- he'd be great for the AFC West, he could make the Chiefs a playoff team like they were meant to be this year. He has a 104 QB rating, completes 70% of his passes with 8 yards per completion.

I think they give him up for a fourth rounder. He can be gotten much more cheaply than a round two pick.
