Inside the Gatorade Studio at the Tampa Convention Center, Bill Parcells was relaxing before he headed off to do about a dozen different interviews at the Super Bowl Media Center.

Before he got started, Parcells took time to talk about the Chiefs new GM Scott Pioli, who also happens to be his son-in-law. He also talked and the man who may be their next head coach, Arizona Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Hereís what Parcells had to say.

Question: What are the driving principles that will be part of Scott Pioliís leadership of the Chiefs franchise?

Parcells: ďHeís relentless. He will not leave any stones unturned when it comes to his job. Heís a hard worker, but heís also a smart worker. He doesnít waste a lot of time on things that donít mean anything. He isnít going to spend a lot of time appearing in front of the cameras and microphones because thatís not what heís about. I think Scott will approach his job just with the primary purpose of giving his coach the best team possible.Ē

Question: At his introductory press conference he said his job is not to get the best 53 players in football, itís to put together the best team. As a man who has both coached and put together teams, what does that mean to you?

Parcells: ďIím not going to speak for him, but what heíll do is go out and get character people. Thatís the job any evaluator has to handle and thatís not only judging physical ability, but character. Youíve got to have character guys on your team. Now thereís a lot of different ways to define that, but in football it comes down to finding players that will work together for one goal. He will find character players.Ē

Question: Is there any sense of your own buttons bursting pride that heís now got a chance to run his own show?

Parcells: ďIíve got two relationships with him. One is football, the other is my daughter. I think heís a good man and I will try to help him anyway I can, within the rules. But heís also now a competitor, and I canít ever forget that.Ē

Question: Todd Haley was part of your staff at both the New York Jets and Dallas. There are a lot of rumors about that he may be the Chiefs next head coach. What qualities do you think he has for the job as head coach?

Parcells: ďOK, right off the bat, Iíve got no idea who heís thinking about as head coach. I last talked to him (Pioli) last Friday and we didnít talk about that subject and I have no knowledge of any names. So, Iím not much of a source as you media guys say for the rumors.

ďAs for Todd, heís an intelligent, passionate guy, who knows how to handle players and understands the things that are important to get things done with a team. He comes from good stock, because his father (Dick Haley) is one of my favorite people in this game. If he can be half the coach that his father was as a scout then Todd will be successful.

ďBut again, Iíve got no idea that itís him. Whoever it is, will be somebody that he (Pioli) feels comfortable with and agrees with his ideas of how you go about putting a team on the field that can win football games. Thatís the only way you get to stay around; you have to win.Ē

Damn, give it up for Gretz for doing something the KC Star should be doing and asking decent questions on top of that.

Second. Gretz gets kicked around plenty, but his information is more valuable than anything Teicher ever manages to scrounge up. Maybe it's because Teicher is such a prick.

I think Gretz needs to be working on his DT Hall presentation instead of blogging. He gets DT in then I'll read his blog.

You might want to start reading his blog, then. Good job Gretz! :toast:
