So I've worked long hours the last couple of days, and haven't had much time to read the threads.

In perusing a couple of threads, I've seen someone alluding to "things we've learned" about this firing.

Can someone enlighten me what it is we've learned?

We've learned that the next Chiefs head coach was born in a manger long, long ago. For He is the only one who meets the fan's criteria for head coach of the KC Chiefs. Which is especially appropo considering the timing of the holidays and the celebration of His birth.

Cliff notes.

-Haley is fired Monday morning.

-Pioli is taking a beating from a lot of folks in the media, which is well deserved.

-Haley's 'bizarre behavior' seems to be getting more attention than his coaching record.

- Lots of speculation that Pioli himself was somehow leaking all that 'bad press' about haley all season. Not sayin' it's true. Just sayin'.

- Some local douche had an e-peen measuring contest with Charles Robinson on Twitter while C-Rob was throwing dirt around about the whole situation. I'm not local, so I don't really care who it was.

- I think there's like one or two people who are happy and think this is a great direction, several who think he got a raw deal from Pioli, and the majority who just think he, Clark, and Pioli should all eat a bullet.

My personal stance is somewhere in between there. I think Haley got a raw deal. I think the deck was stacked against him from the start.. but he actually did enough to justify getting fired. I'm just not sure those justifiable reasons are the real reason he was fired. If that makes sense. Even though I understand it, it's still leaving a nasty taste in my mouth.

Now what did I learn? I'll be honest... the main theme I'm getting here is that Haley is an abrasive dick and Pioli is a total ****ing sleaze. That's my impression of the whole situation.

It was about timing again ... only this time it was something like, "Why now? Did you feel pressure from the fans or the players?"

They dodged that one along with all the rest.

I think we're learning a few things from this situation about our fan base. For the first time in my lifetime (26 years) the majority of the fan base wants us to draft a Quarterback. These are really interesting times because also for the first time in my lifetime I feel we're pretty close to seeing Arrowhead empty week in week out if A) Josh McDaniels is hired as the head coach. B) Matt Cassel is brought back as the starter without atleast us drafting a rookie QB.

I don't think Fisher would be my choice, but he probably gets a tough rap around here. He might have had the worst salary cap situation of any coach in the salary cap era, and an owner who force fed him a QB he didn't want. He certainly has flaws, but he was also a couple feet from taking the 99 Rams to OT too. That's pretty tough. Then had to watch his team be gutted and still rebuilt it into something halfway competitive. Not sure that means he can do it again though.

Force fed a QB: Well, that covers from 2006 on. What about the other 10+ years?

Couple of feet from OT: Should have never even gotten the chance. Refs blew the Music City Miracle call. Refs get that call right, and he has a career 2-6 playoff record.

He gets a tough rap here because he was an average coach.

We learned that Clark is the one that fired Haley. In the press conference Pioli looked nervous. There are a few of us that think that Clark put Pioli on notice that things had to improve. Pioli admitted he had to do his job better.
We learned that Haley and Pioli disagreed about the Tyson Jackson pick and it has been a problem between them ever since. Haley didn't want Tyson Jackson. We learned that Weis didn't want Cassel.

Things we learned:

1) Haley didnt run Weis out of town. He left because he washed his hands of trying to develop Cassel at the halfway point and ALL of the credit for Cassels improvement was due to HALEY, NOT WEIS.

2) Romeo wants the job, but wants to hire his own coaches, if he doesn't get it he thinks whoever does should be able to hire his own guys as coaches.

3) Pioli was leaking rumors about Haley all year

4) The players were totally in Haleys corner.

Hard to know who was right in that deal. Bowe needs a new contract, so it's not a good time to alienate him. Unless you're Haley and you're still trying to coach the guy up. Pioli, on the other hand, might have considered the possibility that Bowe needs to listen to his coach and quit whining. Bowe, on the other hand, needs to regain his diva status if he's going to hold out for a big payday.

Bullshit.

When a receiver drops passes like that one, wide open in the endzone...and it happens on many occasions, it deserves to have the heat turned up.

Coaches dont have anything to do with contracts and if you guys think he should just give Bowe a bunch of free passes because he is looking for a big free agent contract, you are dead wrong.

Its Piolis job to coddle guys and get them to sign long term....its the coaches job to push the players as hard as they can to get the most out of them.

The Haley/Bowe story is from Nick Wright. Even if there was some small reason to put stock into what that credibility-challenged toucan is saying about anything, and I'm unaware of any such reason, it shouldn't actually occur until Bowe is re-signed. Because that was an element of the story, that they were working on a new contract as this happened.

Incidentally, without naming names, Kent Babb certainly appeared to shoot down that story, saying that "despite what's being leaked" Haley "had an excellent relationship" with his players.

IMO Haley made ONE major mistake in KC after he was hired.

Palko.

The news about him being the one that was coaching Cassel up (not Weis) is just another feather in the guys cap.

The guy is a quality coach that wasn't given the tools here to succeed.

Simple as that, again, IMO.

Within 5 years, he will be back in the saddle again as a head coach and will have learned a lot of lessons for his time as HC in KC.

Think of this for a second, guys.

What players has he failed to develop?

Where would his teams have been if he had a quarterback and the rest of the team was developing as it was?

I dont think there are many here that dont think this team would be a contender with a real franchise quarterback.

The news about him being the one that was coaching Cassel up (not Weis) is just another feather in the guys cap.


Coaching him up to the point where he threw 10 TDs and 14 INT in 11 games.

Cassel is beyond "coaching up." He had some success because he was handing it to Jamaal and playing a weak schedule.

That's it.

What players has he failed to develop?


That's not what he's judged on.

He may have developed some individuals but he sure couldn't win with them.

IMO Haley made ONE major mistake in KC after he was hired.

Palko.

The news about him being the one that was coaching Cassel up (not Weis) is just another feather in the guys cap.

The guy is a quality coach that wasn't given the tools here to succeed.

Simple as that, again, IMO.

Within 5 years, he will be back in the saddle again as a head coach and will have learned a lot of lessons for his time as HC in KC.

Think of this for a second, guys.

What players has he failed to develop?

Where would his teams have been if he had a quarterback and the rest of the team was developing as it was?

I dont think there are many here that dont think this team would be a contender with a real franchise quarterback.

Lets just say Weis had absolutely nothing to do with Cassel, hard for me to believe. I'm not saying he didn't "wash his hands of Cassel" but he didn't simply ignore Cassel's shortcomings when drawing up and offensive game plan. How does Cassel succeeding last year pimp up Haley? If anything it makes me question him more. Everyone wanted to believe Cassel was forced on him and that he had no choice but to start him. Sounds more like he believed in him, just like he believed in Palko.

Well considering Albert has already stated "NO!" that he was not referring to Haley then I'm going to go by that. Assume what you want though, because you're wrong.

One thing, though.

I dont think Albert was a fan of Haleys....Id even go so far as to say he disliked him.

Albert was a close friend of Brian Waters and Albert was the ONLY player that didnt participate in the first team activities when the lockout was lifted.

Even though he said that tweet wasnt directed at Haley, doesnt make it true...in fact, I think he did mean it to be directed towards Haley, but his agent probably told him to distance himself from the truth on it because it would give him a "problem player" label...similar to Jon Baldwins situation.

Who knows, but if I was gona place money on it, I would say that Albert doesnt really like Haley and was about the only one happy he was fired.

milkman -- you deserve a better summary of "things learned".

The Pioli-Haley feud was real and it dated back to the Tyson Jackson pick. Haley was not sold. Neither Pioli or Haley ever got over it.

Supposedly, Weis decided Cassel was unsalvageable very early on and refused to invest time in him. Haley took over Cassel's mentoring and any "improvements" in Cassel's play last year were due to his influence. Then Weis got the credit for the "improvements" and Haley couldn't stand for that. Hence ended Weis' tenure in KC.

Supposedly, Pioli is still sold and committed to Cassel going forward.

So the upshot:

Pioli loves Weis.
Weis hated Cassel.
Pioli loves Cassel.
Haley loves Cassel.
Pioli won't listen to his guy Weis about Cassel.
Haley is on the same page as Pioli on Cassel, yet they openly war.
Obviously the whole franchise is dys-fucking-functional.

Things we learned:

1) Haley didnt run Weis out of town. He left because he washed his hands of trying to develop Cassel at the halfway point and ALL of the credit for Cassels improvement was due to HALEY, NOT WEIS.

2) Romeo wants the job, but wants to hire his own coaches, if he doesn't get it he thinks whoever does should be able to hire his own guys as coaches.

3) Pioli was leaking rumors about Haley all year

4) The players were totally in Haleys corner.

How is 1) not running Weis out of town? Everyone knows that Haley isn't the most civil person to disagree with and so is Weis.

3) what's your proof? As much as I have issues with him, I don't think he'd resort to that. Haley made a clown out of himself. No need to leak anything. If there were any leaks, it should be the other way around.


4) Only DJ and Battle expressed such sentiments, IIRC. That doesn't equate all players.

That's not what he's judged on.

He may have developed some individuals but he sure couldn't win with them.
Haley did a fine job of polishing a turd in 2010. He made Cassel look like a NFL quarterback....that alone should tell you how good of a coach he is.

Its not his fault the player has severe limitations that make it nearly impossible for him to be coached up any further.

Come to think of it, a lot of this year makes more sense now.

Haley and Weis developed a gameplan for the year to limit how much Cassel had to do and let the rest of the team win games and brought Cassel along slowly...giving him more on his plate week after week.

This year, we all questioned "why are they putting the ball in Cassels hands so much"...well, thats the natural progression of developing a quarterback. Keep adding more and more until he has full command of the offense.

Haley was giving Cassel the opportunity to take his game to the next level and Cassel showed the world he was unable to do so.

Its not Haleys fault he was handcuffed to a incapable quarterback to lead a NFL team to playoff wins and a chance at a championship or 2.

Cassel put him in position to be able to take that step, Cassel just couldnt do it.
Lets just say Weis had absolutely nothing to do with Cassel, hard for me to believe. I'm not saying he didn't "wash his hands of Cassel" but he didn't simply ignore Cassel's shortcomings when drawing up and offensive game plan. How does Cassel succeeding last year pimp up Haley? If anything it makes me question him more. Everyone wanted to believe Cassel was forced on him and that he had no choice but to start him. Sounds more like he believed in him, just like he believed in Palko.

No doubt it was Weis that developed the "one read, quick throws" passing game to hide the fact that Cassel can not go through progressions and simply lacks the gene that makes quarterbacks test the defenses ability to defend the deep halves.

Haley had no choice but to "believe in Cassel" as you state.

Pioli never got anyone in there that Haley could make a change to when things got so bad.

NOBODY.

Thats why I say that Haleys ONLY major mistake here was Palko...who was seemingly HIS GUY.

...

Heres a sickening fact:

Pioli thought Cassel was his next Tom Brady and Haley thought Tyler Palko was his next Tony Romo.

I bet these guys are pretty damn good in practice, but when the real bullets start flying, they become clueless, drooling, mouth breathing retards.

I will always believe that Haley would have saved his job if he had just moved on to Stanzi after Palkos first game.

All of your questions can be answered by the realization that at his core, Cassel is a lousy QB. Cassel had a few good games against a weak schedule. It wasn't by accident that I put quotes around "improvements".

Charles Robinson's tweets are the most parsimonious rumors/speculation/reading-between-the-lines story that could explain all of the stupidity we've seen surrounding this franchise. Not to mention that he has a ton of credibility. The only guy that has a clue about QB play (Weis) thinks Cassel is not worth his time.

Watch Weis get back into the NFL after another year and for him to make a trade for Jimmy to be his QB.

I don't understand where anyone got "Haley loved Cassel" in anything Charles Robinson was tweeting yesterday. For that matter, Robinson has since said that "Weis hated Cassel" isn't an accurate summary either, pointing out that Pioli never would have hired Weis if he didn't think Cassel could be great.

Robinson said that Haley and Weis disagreed on Cassel's development. Whatever Haley wanted to get from Cassel, Weis didn't think Cassel was capable of it. Presumably, what Haley wanted was how Cassel was playing down the stretch last year, since Robinson says that was the direct result of Haley working with him. What Weis wanted to do is anyone's guess.

None of that translates into "Haley loved Cassel". Cassel is the quarterback. The team and Haley's career were tied to Cassel's performance. Of course Haley's going to want to get everything he can out of him.

The only thing that seems clear from Robinson's tweets is that Weis came in here and didn't really give a shit. Rock Chalk~!

Its not that it "fell apart" its that Haley was asking Cassel to take that next step.

Haley is smart enough to know that you arent gonna win big playoff games with the gameplan we had in 2010....Baltimore reinforced that...Cassel was put in position to take the next step in his development and showed the world he was incapable of doing so.

Dont you remember us all talking about how Cassel was being asked to do more at the start of the year and was failing at it?

I sure as hell do.

Cassel is costing really good coaches their jobs left and right since 2009.

Hopefully, that ends.

I have some level of hope that Pioli is gonna make a smoke screen to make it seem as if we have no interest in drafting a quarterback.

I doubt he brings any of the top guys in for a private workout (only the guys that are looked at as late round picks), but brings in every single linemen, linebacker, running back and safety thats thought of as a first round pick.

Throw everyone off the scent so teams dont think they have to leapfrog us to draft their guy.

Why, you might ask?

Because thats pretty close to what I would do.

Then, BOOM goes the dynamite and Pioli becomes the golden God of KC.

Ill give Charles credit and say he's 80% spot on some of what he said. But to draw the conclusion that it was Haley who got the most out of Cassel last year by developing him is horseshit.

If its anything, its an indictment of how shitty of a coach Haley is, because if he improved Cassel, it would have carried on to this season. Instead, Cassel regressed from the moment Weis announced he was leaving. I am going to consider this more logical than some tweets.

The last six names aren't an excuse, because the blowouts happened every year he was here.

If Cassel is truly the reason for all these blowouts, and he is retained, then we'll see it again next season.

I don't really buy it. We would come out in some of these games and just get slaughtered from the get-go on both sides of the ball.

You go to all these lengths to hate on Haley, but want him replaced by Jeff Fisher?

Really?

Back to my reply...

There are only 3 or 4 instances of that and they happen to every coach that doesn't have a good quarterback.

Most of the games got away from us in the second half after being very competitive in the first half.

Give this team Charles and Berry and 3 of the blowouts this year probably dont happen.

Give this team a real quarterback and none of them happen.

Why?

WITH Charles and Berry, last year we were blown out by:

Denver
Oakland
Baltimore
San Diego

As for Fisher, it's pretty simple:

He wins.

I'm of the belief that there is no "perfect" or "elite" head coach.

There are good coaches who get paired up with elite quarterbacks and then they go and win Super Bowls.

If we had Fisher, and we drafted a guy who is going to multiple Pro Bowls, I believe we'd be a contender. Simple as that.

Get a good coach who takes you to the playoffs consistently, get a QB to win in the playoffs.

All Pioli will have to do is draft a QB in the first round and nobody will give a **** about Todd Haley. I'm sure signing Becht, Palko, and whatever broke dick Haley coached was all 100% Pioli. Dumbass cut Jarred Gaither too. I thought both should be fired but to be fair it wasn't Pioli dressing like a homeless bum cursing up a storm infront of a national audience. Clark was at the game Sunday and that team had lost control firing Haley was absolutely the correct call.

A good quarterback can make any head coach look really good.

I will always think Dungy was a mirror image of Herm..but with Peyton Manning its hard to see that.

If he is gonna give the job to Romeo or some other cronie, he better draft the right guy in the first round...or its gonna be his ass on the chopping block in 2 years and the next GM will be brought in.

Clark wants a franchise quarterback....he said as much before Pioli was brought in...

Time for Pioli to get the owner what he wants.

Just, please dont let that guy be Landry Blackledge.

Marty was never fired from the Chiefs.

You know, because Carl respected him and he respected Carl.

AJ Smith fired him and probably would have thrown himself a roman style triumph down the middle of San Diego if he could have. They hated each other.

At least the Colts were winning last year. It's like they cried tears in their beers and quit trying once they discovered that Manning would be out for the entire length of this season. So, they did have a valid excuse for sucking this year. The Chiefs were sucking long before Cassell got injured. I am a die-hard Chiefs fan, but you can't escape the obvious.

Get a good coach who takes you to the playoffs consistently, get a QB to win in the playoffs.You guys can say what you want about Vince Young and the owner forcing him on Fisher....the truth is that team didnt win until they started Vince.

His rookie year, they were garbage and Vince came in about the halfway point and almost won every game and took the team to the playoffs.

Shortly after, Fisher benched him and it didnt take ong till the team was right back in the crapper...looking a top 5 pick in the face again till the owner told Fisher to play his draft pick...amazing that the team went on another winning run.

I dont know how high the level of hatred will go if we draft a top ten QB and the HC repeatedly finds reasons to bench him.

...

I dont care what some of you believe, but Josh McDaniels cheated to win that game. Dustin Colquit reinforced what I said with his own words.

Oakland won that game in the trenches...their DL DOMINATED our OL all game.

We were actually beating Baltimore right before the end of the first half till they remembered that Romeos defense fails to cover tight ends and Jamaal Charles got hurt.

Here is what Fisher did when he had consistent QB play:

http://i43.tinypic.com/2m29zza.jpg

That is McNair's prime right there. After 2003 he started to fall off, got hurt, etc.

Then the Titans were forced to draft Vince Young by their meddlesome owner and shit went south.

Once they recovered from that, Fisher got them back to the playoffs with a different QB, but Collins wasn't taking that team anywhere. If Fisher had drafted Jay Cutler like he wanted to, maybe that team does something.

If we had the right QB here with Fisher, I think we would be a serious contender.

I would rather have us hire Romeo Crennel than hire Jeff Fisher.

It took a miracle and a blown call for his team to have ever even gotten to the superbowl.

Other than that, he was a poor mans Marty Schottenheimer.

You know who I think would be a fantastic hire (if he wasnt old as dirt)?

Dick Vermiel.

What has Jay Cutler done so far in the NFL? He got cut from the Broncos after 2 or 3 seasons, and got injured halfway through this season while with the Bears. If Fisher can't succeed with guys like Vince Young or Steve McNair, then Jay Cutler wouldn't have faired much better.

2002 - The Super Bowl runner up (OAK)
2003 - The Super Bowl bowl champs (NE)

I have to respectfully disagree. The Chiefs have been blown out 5 times this year, and it wasn't all the offense's fault. If the defense were at the top of their game during all 5 of those same games, I imagine they would have only lost by a couple of TD's. Crennel still has some kinks to work out before anyone can assume he can get them back up to the level of the Gunther Cunningham defense of the late 90's.

As far as Dick Vermeil, during his 5 year run as the Chiefs' HC, he was primarily offensive-minded and did little to improve the defense (the defense sucked during the Vermeil years), which would explain why 4 out of those 5 years the team failed to make the playoffs, three of them being with losing or un-winning (8-8) win-loss records. Honestly, the Head Coaching is not the problem overall, it's the entire Chiefs' personnel that needs revamping since they have yet to obtain both a top 10 offense and top 10 defense in the same season.

Sorry, but you're wrong. Marty is incapable of getting any team to the Superbowl. His career strategy was nearly the same every year:

1. Start a career back-up QB.
2. Lead his team to a 10-6 record or better.
3. Choke in the playoffs.

He did this with the Cleveland Browns, Kansas City Chiefs, and San Diego Chargers. There is no woulda, coulda, shoulda with him even if he did get the chance to work with Rivers. By the way, Rivers is a whiny baby and is not ready for the Superbowl yet. Let's face it, his chances of actually getting a team to the Superbowl are as good as Marv Levy's chances are of actually getting his team to win a Superbowl.

Is it me, or do some people on here like to be trolls and make retarded replies to people they don't like while falsely acting like a know-it-all? True Chiefs fans don't come off acting like moronic a**holes towards other Chiefs fans and basically tell those they disagree with that they can suck it.

Things we have learned from JCharles1981 tonight:

1) Dan Saleamua really was an offensive linemen...apparently not a very good one, either.
2) Al Saunders was an overrated defensive coordinator
3) I hate Tony Moeaki and have given up on his after just 2 years.

If you weren't trolling, you wouldn't be firing personal shots at me. I guess being allowed to have an open opinion about the Chiefs doesn't pay off here. Lame!

I think we're learning a few things from this situation about our fan base. For the first time in my lifetime (26 years) the majority of the fan base wants us to draft a Quarterback. These are really interesting times because also for the first time in my lifetime I feel we're pretty close to seeing Arrowhead empty week in week out if A) Josh McDaniels is hired as the head coach. B) Matt Cassel is brought back as the starter without atleast us drafting a rookie QB.

I think you overestimate the fanbase.

While I agree that many more would like to see a QB drafted and are clued in to who McDaniels is and why they do not want.....

This message board and talk radio is not a good gauge of the overall Chiefs Kingdom. This board is consisted of people who are much more informed that the average Chiefs fan.

The Haley/Bowe story is from Nick Wright. Even if there was some small reason to put stock into what that credibility-challenged toucan is saying about anything, and I'm unaware of any such reason, it shouldn't actually occur until Bowe is re-signed. Because that was an element of the story, that they were working on a new contract as this happened.

Incidentally, without naming names, Kent Babb certainly appeared to shoot down that story, saying that "despite what's being leaked" Haley "had an excellent relationship" with his players.

This would be the same Kent Babb who as recently as a few days ago in a Star chat said the Chiefs most likely keep Haley? The same guy who discounted the problems between Pioli and Haley? Sorry but these local guys are spoon fed their information. I believe it was Clark Hunt that had enough though and made the move. It's just a gut feeling from the press conference.

There is no way the entire team "loved" Haley or hated him either. Most likely the truth is in the middle. I never thought he had the credentials and I didn't like his coaching. A lot of Chiefs fans liked him. I'm sure that's how it was in the locker room as well. Time to move on.

There was nothing consistent about his teams. They go 12-4 one season, then 6-10 the next. We must really LOVE Denver because we apparently want a clone of their head coach.

Good post and one I agree with. His winning % is somewhere around 54%. There are not many experienced coaches out there with great winning percentages or they would have jobs. I do think Pioli should hire someone who he feels comfortable working with and get everyone going the same direction. It's his last hire if he's wrong so I don't really care who he chooses. From what I've read Clark has him on a short leash. I am more concerned about Stanzi and the QB situation than who the head coach is right now. If Pioli misfires it's getting blown up again anyway.

Cliff Notes:

1. No Chiefs news whatsoever. No leaks or rumors of a firing.
2. KC website announces Haley is gone. Press conference in 3 hours.
3. Every reporter suddenly has inside info from the last 3 years, stories include, but are not limited to: Haley hated T Jax pick, it was Haley who took Cassel under his wing and developed and believed in him, Weis refused to develop Cassel, Haley was a monumental prick to Bowe which caused Bowe to go to Pioli and complain, Pioli went to Todd and told him to stop being a dick to players whose contracts the team is trying to extend, Pioli is tied to the hip with Cassel, McD & Ferentz are likely HC candidates.
4. Press conference occurs. Clark seems calm with underlying anger. Pioli looks uneasy, moreso than he ever has in front of the camera. Blame the firing on a lack of consistency. Get asked a bunch of lame questions. No answers.
5. All of the inside leaks and info stops like you are turning off a drain.

Mass hysteria ensues at the Planet. The end.

No shit.

I find it comical that people think Jeff Fisher is some amazing coach while Billick is some slapdick.

Billick got lucky. He was never able to bring his offensive genius to Baltimore.

Hell, he picked Grbac to be his QB, and then Boller.

No.

"Guru" and "genius" are are the product of the talent that plays for them on the field.

Billick was never able to bring his "genius" to Baltimore, because Ozzie Newsome never came close to providing him with the talent that he worked with in Minnesota..

In Baltimore, had mediocre skill position players, especially at QB, except RB, an outstanding O-Line to block for that RB, and one of the best defenses in the NFL.

He adapted.

The thing that separated him from guys like Marty and Jeff Fisher, was that he was not afraid to take a risk in the effort to reach the SB.

Where Fisher simply got lucky to win a hard fought contest with Music City Miracle, Brian Billick, in a low scoring hard fought game took a chance.

In a situation that Marty and Fisher would simply have run the ball 3 times and punted, Billick from the Ravens 12 yard line, with a medicre Trent Dilfer, ran slant play that caught the Raiders off guard, and it turned into an 88 yard TD pass.

Tight sphincters, in all probability, lose that game.

I certainly don't think Fisher is as aggressive as someone like Sean Payton... but he's not Marty either. People equate physical football to Martyball. Just because he ran the ball a lot, his teams would still take shots downfield, take risks, throw in a surprise onside kick or trick play. I don't think a Marty team would've tried the music city miracle play. Fisher also had success with 1st round QBs, even Young who he didn't want. To me Fisher is closer to Rex Ryan than Marty.

You know who I think would be a fantastic hire (if he wasnt old as dirt)?

Dick Vermiel.

Think of Vermiels offense with this defense to back it up.

I bet Dick could make Stanzi a rockstar...a 23 year old Trent Green would be nice to have.

Uh Vermeil wouldnl't want to spend the money on defense. We would end up right back where we were. Vermeil would want all of these players for his offense and to put them on the squad the rest of our play makers on defense would have to go to have the money for them.

Man you guys and your memories aren't very good. Kendrell Bell yeah he was 26 but he had blown out his knee 3 times before we signed him. The Steelers didn't want him anymore because of his knees. Not a good signing.
Barber was 28 when we signed him. The guy stayed injured. I had hopes for him. But still you guys are talking about LB the cheapest position on the field. We drafted Derrick in Vermeil's last year.

Well I think by cutting, releasing, not resigining our best Defensive players at the time along with his opinion about the LB position. Remember he drafted London Fletcher and then wouldn't pay him in St. Louis. Fletcher spoke out about that situation. At the time this is where they got the money to sign Green, Dunn and the rest of the players that Vermeil brought in. That defense that he had in St. Louis was 1 tackle good enough to win a SB other than that they were the bottum of the league. Defense was definitely 3rd to Vermeil. Special teams and Offense was more important to Vermeil than the Defense. When everything else on the team is more important than Defense, You know defense wins championships, You can most definitely say he has apathy for Defense.

Haley went 10-6 with MATT CASSEL

Playing the last place schedule that also included the sucking NFC West. Oakland also swept the division.

It is my opinion, if Cassel was worth the powder to blow his hat off, Haley would still be the HC of this team.

But he isn't, and they get to start over because the QB still sucks ass.

It is really that simple, and the only way to have avoided this would have been for Haley to say no when he had some leverage.

That was when Pioli wanted to hire him, not after he was committed.
