Eric Berry didn't even allow a question about last season to be asked before cutting off the inquiring mind. There's no way he was going to relive that nightmare.
Instead, the Pro Bowl safety spoke optimistically about what the Kansas City Chiefs can accomplish this season under a new head coach.
Berry thinks the pieces are in place for a quick turnaround from a 2-14 record a year ago to a team with playoff aspirations.
Berry was among the veteran players who checked into training camp Thursday on the campus of Missouri Western State University.
They joined rookies, quarterbacks and selected veterans who were able to get a head start over the past few days.
The Chiefs' first full-squad workout is Friday.
