View Full Version : Chiefs Whitlock takes Egoli national

5. This week's teachable moment is a warning to members of the national football media: I'm respectfully asking that writers and broadcasters do not visit Kansas City with the intention of carrying Scott Pioli's water.

My reaction to any homer-ish, out-of-context Pioli water-carrying will not be respectful. Pioli came to Kansas City and quickly unveiled the biggest ego in professional sports, earning him the nickname Scott Egoli. He absolutely doesn't need Peter King, Adam Schefter, Mike Florio or anyone else rationalizing the roster he put together.

It is no secret around the league that Egoli believes he is equal to or superior to Bill Belichick in football intellect. I'm anxious to see him prove it. I campaigned for the Chiefs to hire Egoli. I'd like for him to be successful. But there's no reason for us to prop him up.

So let's kill the little notes about the Chiefs releasing 30 players (five off injured reserve and five off the practice squad) since Pioli's arrival and only three or four of them landing on an opponent's roster. Do you think Bill Parcells didn't release some players off the 1-15 Dolphins team he inherited?

By the end of the 2008 season, I believe there were fewer than 30 Dolphins left from the 2007 roster.

Parcells also acquired a veteran quarterback, Chad Pennington, and gave him a two-year deal worth around $9 million. Meanwhile, Egoli acquired Matt Cassel, giving the career backup a $60 million contract.

We're not throwing any pity parties in Kansas City. If you acquire information by providing back massages to ego-bloated general managers, I'm politely asking you to find another city. I like and respect the overwhelming majority of the men and women covering the NFL -- particularly King, Schefter and Florio -- but I can't tolerate anyone interfering with how I run my corners in Kansas City.

Pathetic. The stupid name. The entire premise. Pioli can't possibly compete with Carl Peterson for ego. And hardly an issue of ego for someone to follow the approach that they developed and that worked elsewhere over time.

But I guess this is how Whitlock makes his paycheck.

Pathetic.

He appears quite the opposite of Egoli.

I can see writing an article in the local paper on Pioli, but in a national column why bother. 90% of the people reading it don't know who KC's GM is and the other 9.9% don't care if he is an egotistical ass or not.

Like someone else said, anytime I see Pioli on television or hear him speak, he sounds perfectly well mannered, humble, and very professional. Maybe he does have an ego, to be in that business you probably do, but he never seems to show it - except to Whitlock I guess.

It's sad that Whitlock can be so talented but when it comes to the Chiefs he is nothing but a poo-slinger.

The Planet talks about Whitlock when either:

That's really not an obsession, since nobody brings up Whitlock out of the blue.

I think the article is tongue-in-cheek in regards to the other sportswriters.

It IS disingenous to say that 30 players have been released when in fact, five were on IR and five were on the practice squad.

This is also factual:

"Parcells also acquired a veteran quarterback, Chad Pennington, and gave him a two-year deal worth around $9 million. Meanwhile, Egoli acquired Matt Cassel, giving the career backup a $60 million contract."

I really don't see any reason to get worked up about this blurb.

I listened/read the camp reports as much as anyone and I never got the impression that Croyle was 'beating him out", certainly not after his performance in the second preseason game. People said he was up-and-down in practice, but I didn't ever get the idea that his job was in any real question.

I've thought all along that this whole thing that's being blown up into a quarterback controversy was simply Haley being consistent on the whole competition thing when he was answering questions. He's been beating that drum the whole time, I think he believes it's integral to changing the entitled mindset of the roster, and I don't know that there's a player on the team he'd outright call an unquestioned starter outside of Colquitt and Succop, and maybe not even them. It's his philosophy.

Also, I will say this, of course if Cassel plays badly, Haley won't hesitate to pull him, but right now this is much-ado-about, nothing.

morphius
09-24-2009, 01:32 PM
So I guess I think have finally figured this out, Pioli stole the last rib off the plate at Gates in their three hour dinner, and everyone knows the last one belongs to Jason. Only someone with a big ego would do that, and the guy who walked out on both sports radio stations and ESPN has enough experience to know ego when he sees it...

Haley has stated that there are no sacred cows and the BEST players will play.

Also, there's this, from August 8th:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/don_banks/08/20/backups/1.html

15. Brodie Croyle, Kansas City -- I was at Chiefs camp on day one this summer and the conventional wisdom at that point was that Croyle was going to have to fight to win the No. 3 job behind Matt Cassel and Tyler Thigpen. But Croyle has had a good preseason, and now there's even some speculation about whether he could wind up pushing Cassel. I don't think that happens, but Croyle looks like he's firmly ahead of Thigpen right now.

I just listened to it, and either Maas has an insider on the sideline, or he's blatantly making things up in detail.

According to Maas, Haley went to Cassel on the sideline during the 4th quarter and said, "you haven't read the defense all day."

He went on to say that one of the TOs we blew was because Haley was busy screaming at Cassel through the headset, and didn't bother to tell the sideline what the personell package was for the play he was calling.

He went on to say that one of the TOs we blew was because Haley was busy screaming at Cassel through the headset, and didn't bother to tell the sideline what the personell package was for the play he was calling.

I listened to it also. Like you said, he either has someone close to what's happening or he has an overactive imagination. He makes it seem like Haley really in Croyle's corner.

As I've stated before, Whitlock's only hope at this point is to see the Chiefs fail, and fail utterly, epically; something of a magnitude worse than what Peterson and Herm left behind. He's been on this schtick before the season began, and now he's imploring other in the medial to drink his punch.

Let me tell you something Jason - the rest of the media likes and appreciates the efforts of Haley and Pioli. Peter King already has proffered up several very positive articles/snippets on the Chiefs and Pioli in SI. As others have mentioned, Pioli, in all the interviews I've seen of him/with him, is gracious, soft-spoken, intelligent and respectful to the interviewer. And I think that you are fully aware of this, thus the reason behind your recent plea to the national reporters. However, I'm sure that most of them who've had a chance to sit down and talk with Pioli will figure it out on their own. And then you will be regarded as the raving lunatic, the village idiot, the delusional apocalyptic doomsayer whose draped himself with a "The End is Near!" placard and stands on the corner maniacally screaming at anyone, everyone who passes by.

I don't know what you did to piss him off...wait. Yes I do. You "broke" the story of Waters being a cry baby about not getting a permanent office next to Hunt, Pioli and Haley at Arrowhead. You've done nothing to endear yourself to this franchise's new front office because you've continued to bait them with immature name calling because it was your ego that got hurt - not the other way around.

At this point, you have burned the bridges. And with every single article, you continue to throw kerosene on the fire, and sooner rather than later, you are going to spill some on yourself and go up in flames.

Frankly, I'm embarrassed. For you. For the Chiefs fans who will be associatively connected with you. For the rest of the media that you've called out.

You don't feel like a fool. Well, maybe after the six months of complete and utter negativity that you've avalanche on the new front office you do but there's no reason for you to be worried about being the single, sole reason for Pioli being hired by the Chiefs. You are the media. You are supposed to be the beacon of rational objectivity. It was Hunt that hired him, not you. And he was the guy that a lot, and I mean a lot, of other teams had their eye on for the GM spot.

What is really interesting is why you aren't coming clean with the goods that you have on Pioli, that "something" that has you convinced he's a raving, out of control meglomaniac. It's pretty apparent that you aren't "real happy," but have provided nothing other than a snippet about him talking over Haley once or twice at a presser luncheon. I got to tell you, that just ain't enough.

You guys don't even know how to properly criticize me. I campaigned for Jeff George and Ty Law. I got all excited when the Chiefs signed Chester McGlockton. If Pioli is a flop, I'm basically going to write the opposite of whatever my instincts tell me the Chiefs should do next.

I'm bummed by what I've seen from and learned about Pioli since his arrival in KC. I'm hoping he turns it around. It's early.

You looked like a fool long before Pioli got to Kansas City.

The problem is you got used to the buddy/buddy system with Herm. You are a lot like Brian Waters. You got comfortable having access to everything inside Arrowhead much like Waters got used to playing patticake with Herman Edwards. Pioli came in, shook up your comfort zone, and now you are lashing out like a bitch.

You always have an agenda. You want the access, but Pioli isn't granting it so you have to come up with stories to sell papers. We get it.

You also have covered your ass both ways. If Pioli succeeds, you can point to your prior articles and pound your chest (or moobs, whatever you want) and say you were behind the hiring when it happened. If he fails, you've laid the groundwork for the "I told you so" piece.

Either way, you come out smelling like a rose - which is all you are interested in.

LOL! A lot of us KC fans feel that way, we get excited and our hopes dashed. That's why you see so many of us just taking a wait and see with the new regime. I think anyone who didn't expect big ego's from Pioli and Haley just wasn't paying attention. Has anyone, and I mean ANYONE come out of NE that didn't at least try and act like the biggest man on the playground? And Haley's yelling matches are already a thing of legend.

Alright Jason thanks for taking the time. I will keep an open mind in regards to your articles but IMO you need to be alot more specific in your criticism besides someone with a huge ego. I am sure most NFL GM's and head coaches have huge ego's and never want to be wrong about anything so to us educated Chief fans that is really not a surprise.

I just listened to it, and either Maas has an insider on the sideline, or he's blatantly making things up in detail.

According to Maas, Haley went to Cassel on the sideline during the 4th quarter and said, "you haven't read the defense all day."

He went on to say that one of the TOs we blew was because Haley was busy screaming at Cassel through the headset, and didn't bother to tell the sideline what the personell package was for the play he was calling.

Wow.

On the one hand, if the last paragraph is true, Haley needs to get a fucking hold on himself. That kind of shit CANNOT happen.

That being said, I sincerely HOPE the 2nd paragraph is true. Cassel didn't read the defense well, and there were times where he didn't even bother with his progressions.

I'm fully on-board with Cassel being the QB. I'm even excited about it, if that's possible. That being said, he's NOT a rookie and I don't expect him to play like one. If I wanted to watch a QB play scared and dump it off all the time, I'd be campaigning for Brodie Croyle to start.

I've spent far more time with and far more time talking to Scott Pioli than I ever did with Herm Edwards.

I really liked Pioli at the outset. We talked quite a bit long before he was ever hired by the Chiefs

Given that Pioli is a megalomaniac who thinks the media are worthless scum that keep him from doing his job, it's kinda surprising how much interaction you've had with him.

One can only assume that these encounters resemble Pioli acting like a rich American walking through the streets of Panama, throwing coins at the feet of the dirty street children who grab his leg as they try to touch his cashmere sweater.

Trust me, I look better if Pioli is a success. You think I can't write columns taking credit for Pioli's success? I look far worse if he's a flop. You guys don't even know how to properly criticize me. I campaigned for Jeff George and Ty Law. I got all excited when the Chiefs signed Chester McGlockton. If Pioli is a flop, I'm basically going to write the opposite of whatever my instincts tell me the Chiefs should do next.

I can see Haley chewing the shit out of any player on the team. And I can especially see Haley ripping into a QB who threw two key picks and a crossing pattern that cost his team three points before halftime. I expect that from a HC.

I can also see Maas tailoring yarns out of whole cloth to help embellish his theory.

This week's teachable moment is a warning to members of the national football media: I'm respectfully asking that writers and broadcasters do not visit Kansas City with the intention of carrying Scott Pioli's water.

Ok, this is a weak start, but it's not really any sort of "WTF?" beginning. It's just a bad opening that would have been reworked by anyone who was taking pride in their professional writing.

My reaction to any homer-ish, out-of-context Pioli water-carrying will not be respectful. Pioli came to Kansas City and quickly unveiled the biggest ego in professional sports, earning him the nickname Scott Egoli. He absolutely doesn't need Peter King, Adam Schefter, Mike Florio or anyone else rationalizing the roster he put together.

So because he believes that Pioli has a big ego, Whitlock feels justified in being disrespectful towards those who disagree with him. He also feels that he is the person who determines when nicknames are earned.

I'm confused here. Is it Pioli or Whitlock who's supposed to have the out of control ego?

It is no secret around the league that Egoli believes he is equal to or superior to Bill Belichick in football intellect. I'm anxious to see him prove it. I campaigned for the Chiefs to hire Egoli. I'd like for him to be successful. But there's no reason for us to prop him up.

Ok, I haven't heard that Pioli thinks he's Belichick's superior in football intellect. For the sake of argument, I'm willing to believe that he does. I'm not sure why that would mean people shouldn't 'prop up' a man who's taking on complete control for the first time, especially if you're supposedly hoping the man will be successful. I've worked for bosses who were complete assholes. I still made damned sure to prop them up at every possible turn, as long as they were competent.

So let's kill the little notes about the Chiefs releasing 30 players (five off injured reserve and five off the practice squad) since Pioli's arrival and only three or four of them landing on an opponent's roster. Do you think Bill Parcells didn't release some players off the 1-15 Dolphins team he inherited?

Just because something's been done before, we should stop pointing it out? That's a pretty pathetic argument, to put it kindly. Also, he didn't bother to inform the reader about how many of those players released by Parcells ended up on other rosters so that we could compare.

By the end of the 2008 season, I believe there were fewer than 30 Dolphins left from the 2007 roster.

"I believe"? WTF, was he too damned lazy to even Google the facts? I realize that he's quite a bit overweight, and that prolonged periods of exercise may be problematic as a result, but we're talking about using a keyboard here.

Parcells also acquired a veteran quarterback, Chad Pennington, and gave him a two-year deal worth around $9 million. Meanwhile, Egoli acquired Matt Cassel, giving the career backup a $60 million contract.

Pennington was cut at the last minute, wanted to start, and was willing to work for $9 million. Is Whitlock's argument that Pioli should have just waited until the exhibition games to see if Favre came back and bounced another QB out of a job? If not, his argument here is just ****ing stupid.

We're not throwing any pity parties in Kansas City. If you acquire information by providing back massages to ego-bloated general managers, I'm politely asking you to find another city. I like and respect the overwhelming majority of the men and women covering the NFL -- particularly King, Schefter and Florio -- but I can't tolerate anyone interfering with how I run my corners in Kansas City.

And another ego insertion for the man crying about Pioli's ego. I think the bolded part probably speaks to the real issue, and that's simply that Tubby BBQ can't get the access his eqo tells him he deserves. Pioli may be a world class prick for all I know, but I doubt an article as shoddy as this would have gotten written if Whitlock didn't have a bucket of sand stuck in his vagina.

Shitlock didn't get into journalism because he wanted to be a writer who loved sports, he got into journalism because he's a bigot in search of an audience.

And by being in the press thus enriched his opportunity to spew his hatred and ignorance as he saw fit- for it's okay for an African-American to write about hate even if it's not entertaining. And the sad thing is, the editors don't care as long as it sells papers.

But, I do care- I'm sick of his childish clashing with other egos. I'm sick of his ignorant babbling. When I pick up the paper and pull out the Sports section, I want to read about sports. I don't want to read a writer's conflict with another business owner. If I wanted to read that sh*t, I would've picked up USA Today.

I think Clark wants to win. Cutting Cassel in the uncapped year will cost HIM $14M more than if they had kept him under the tag, because Caseel is due $28M in guarantees.

There's no implication to the TEAM, however, because there won't be a cap.

All of this talk is ridculous anyway.

Clark saw first-hand what Trent Green did his first year. There's zero chance they were going to let him "try out" under the franchise tag, because there's a better than good chance JUST LIKE GREEN that this season is not at all indicative of how good Cassel is.

I was not the only person there and I was not the only person blown away by Pioli's ego. The dinner made me do some homework, some more digging.

If you can be remotely objective about my work, you know I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong, no problem praising people I don't personally like and I don't choose my favorites based on skin color.

I really liked Pioli at the outset. We talked quite a bit long before he was ever hired by the Chiefs. But you don't really know a person when they live in Boston.

Okay, your the paid pro whos had access, you havent liked Scotts personality & are making it known...you gotta write about something.

But why should that make me worry about this team? How will his impersonal style adversely affect it? Its going to take a strong Egoli to wipe off the dirt on this team.

You never said why you ran with what Maas said about a 'brewing QB situation'...what made you, why would you repeat it?...does that guy have the real goods, or simply pulling it from his crack? a QB 'situation' & potential GM/HC rift seems quite ludicrous at this point.

Once they traded for Cassel, there was NO CHANCE of him playing under the franchise tag. Alot of people here, myself included, thought it would be wise to have him "try out" for a year before giving him a long-term contract.

And I now realize that was never going to happen. Clark Hunt was here. He saw Trent Green play. And he saw what happened - he saw that Green's play in his 1st season here was a complete anomaly when compared to the rest of his tenure here. For right or wrong, Clark wasn't going to give Cassel a 1-year "try out" because Green's performance was living proof that a 1-year "tryout" isn't going to tell you a damn thing about how a guy will play long-term.

*I* don't necessarily disagree with you.

He wasn't going to play on a 1 year try out anyway because dealing for him not drafting a QB then letting him walk the next year would be viewed as completely idiotic.

Well you see there was alot of "Pioli know's what he's doing" and "Cassel is better" etc etc so the people that wanted Sanchez took a ton of heat for wanting him instead.

Not everyone is just going to let that go.

Then you're admitting that it IS petty. It's not about the team, it's about being right or being wrong.

And don't act like the people that wanted Sanchez "took the heat". We dished out plenty of it too.

By the way, I DO think Pioli knows what he's doing. I also think he's human and humans make mistakes.

I rarely even talk about Sanchez anymore so I would hope that isn't directed at me. The people that didn't want him bring him up more than the people that did. That somehow any critique of Cassel is somehow tied to Sanchez in an obscure way.

We are where we are, the simple point is if he was wrong, we're ****ed.

No, it's not a simple point. There is actually a chance, whether some of you want to believe it or not, that both could be pretty good quarterbacks. It's not black vs. white like most think.

People are absolutely petty about things. I was 3 in 83 and there was no net, do you not think for a second if a section of a forum had called for Marino been told they were retarded and not on board then things played out the way they did...there wouldn't have been some pettiness leveled by those people?

I sent Whitlock a message just a little bit ago telling him I use to enjoy his work from time to time, but this entire kick he's on has made him look utterly ridiculous to put it lightly. Told him I just can't even stand to read his column anymore and won't ever again. Like fifteen minutes later he sends me back an email saying "gonna miss, God Bless, Jason." I didn't think he'd offer any type of defense and quite frankly was surprised he even responded. I guess as long as he's famous he doesn't really care what the masses think, which I should have expected. He just confirmed my thoughts that he's a sellout.

Of course people are petty about things.

However, as Dane has said multiple times, it's over. It's time to move on. Even if there's people out there that NEVER let it go, ignore them.

I mean honestly, did it hurt you to have those people call you "retarded"? Have you lost confidence in your football knowledge because of it?

Of course not. If anything, you should be more secure in your knowledge than ever. Why not enjoy it?

It doesn't bother me, I laugh when I get called stupid when I think I'm right way more than I'm wrong.

And i have moved on I rarely if ever talk about Sanchez the people who didn't want him still bring him up to the people that did regardless.

I could say "wow poor decision by Cassel" and I'd get something like "Fuck Mark Sanchez" how's that make any god damn sense?

Just remember that every time you remind people that you didn't want Cassel, you're asking them to bring up Sanchez.

Um, that doesn't make much sense, since Cassel proving or not proving "he's the better man" won't change that he's with the Chiefs and Sanchez is with the Jets.

Okay then, let me put this a different way:

If QB candidate X, who is currently playing in the NCAA, and who is IN FACT "not a Chief" becomes available to Kansas City after Cassel shows nothing but mediocrity or completely shits the bed for two years, I would hope to Hell that our Illustrious Leader has a little bit more fucking foresight than he did IN HIS LAST QB TRANSACTION.

Or, if he does not, but Haley does, I hope Haley drags him by his fat ears up and down the business offices of OAD until Pioli gets the fucking message!

I'm good with either option.

Dang. This is sad.

It is possible that poor Whittles' is suffering some form of breakdown. We may well be witnessing the beginning of the end. Of course, it's true that a lot of writers have begun their careers with great promise only to end them in the ward of a psychiatric hospital. And, although I would be pleased to see Whittles properly diagnosed and treated, my only regret is that most respected mental health institutions no longer integrate massive testicular shock into their therapy programs.

5. This week's teachable moment is a warning to members of the national football media: I'm respectfully asking that writers and broadcasters do not visit Kansas City with the intention of carrying Scott Pioli's water.

My reaction to any homer-ish, out-of-context Pioli water-carrying will not be respectful. Pioli came to Kansas City and quickly unveiled the biggest ego in professional sports, earning him the nickname Scott Egoli. He absolutely doesn't need Peter King, Adam Schefter, Mike Florio or anyone else rationalizing the roster he put together.

It is no secret around the league that Egoli believes he is equal to or superior to Bill Belichick in football intellect. I'm anxious to see him prove it. I campaigned for the Chiefs to hire Egoli. I'd like for him to be successful. But there's no reason for us to prop him up.

So let's kill the little notes about the Chiefs releasing 30 players (five off injured reserve and five off the practice squad) since Pioli's arrival and only three or four of them landing on an opponent's roster. Do you think Bill Parcells didn't release some players off the 1-15 Dolphins team he inherited?

By the end of the 2008 season, I believe there were fewer than 30 Dolphins left from the 2007 roster.

Parcells also acquired a veteran quarterback, Chad Pennington, and gave him a two-year deal worth around $9 million. Meanwhile, Egoli acquired Matt Cassel, giving the career backup a $60 million contract.

We're not throwing any pity parties in Kansas City. If you acquire information by providing back massages to ego-bloated general managers, I'm politely asking you to find another city. I like and respect the overwhelming majority of the men and women covering the NFL -- particularly King, Schefter and Florio -- but I can't tolerate anyone interfering with how I run my corners in Kansas City.

this is good

Do not get caught up in the hype that Russell's game-winning drive against the Chiefs is some sort of sign that he's a competent NFL quarterback. He's not.

Never in my life have I seen QB play as bad as I witnessed from Off-The-Marcus Russell. From his demeanor, body language and the way he trotted off the field after every Oakland three-and-out series, Russell looked nothing like an NFL quarterback last week.

Until his game-winning drive, Off-The-Marcus had completed three of 17 passes for 42 yards. He missed countless open receivers. He never once read a defense. Despite being as big as most left tackles, Off-The-Marcus never threatened to tuck the ball and run.

He got lucky at the end of the game. The Chiefs softened their defense and the refs bailed him out with a questionable late-hit call.

Chiefs are heading in the right direction

Bad news for devout Herm Haters:

In losing 20-19 to San Diego on Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs played a near-flawless game and gave the strongest testimony to date Herm Edwards might deserve at least one more season to lead the Chiefs.We all need to take a step back and re-evaluate Edwards’ performance. He is not perfect. But he’s been hamstrung by a set of problems not his own making. He’s beginning to dig out from those problems.This was in November!! November! The end was NIGH!

YOU ARE FULL OF IT!
