What do you think about Scott Pioli leaving?

"No big deal."

"He was really good at getting players that Bill Belichick wanted. Belichick gave him a grocery list."

Killshot.

"The thing about Scott is that he only wants to win a championship one way, and if you're not doing it his way, there are no other options. He is so self-centered, so believing in his own hype, so unaware of the fact that Bill Belichick and Tom Brady played so much into what he did in NE that he thinks that every decision he is going to make is going to be the right one."

Assuming he's right about all this (I like Chadhia & have no reason to believe he's not), why in the hell was Pioli so highly touted as the best available guy for the GM job? And I don't just mean by analysts & fans, but football people seemed to love it.

Maybe I'm wrong, but whatever. The more I hear & read about Pioli, the more I think "FUCK YOU." I'll be 100% done with him if/when he does one of the following in the next 6 months or so:

A) Hires McDumbass in any capacity.
B) Drafts an OL in the 1st round.
C) Keeps Cassel as the only QB on the roster in 2012.

I was pretty excited when Pioli was hired 3 years ago. Finally the Chiefs had a GM that can put his ego aside and get the players/personnel we need to win. But its becoming more apparent that he's not much different than King Carl. Pioli has gotten a lot of bad press lately when it comes to that ego and poor decision making. The more I hear, the more I hate him.

2009 was a joke, no doubt.

Only having Tyson Jackson, Matt Cassel, Jovan Belcher and Ryan Succop from a draft where we picked at 3 and had a buttload of cash to spend is embarrassing, but first impressions aren't everything.

The 2010 draft was damn good, though and to act as if it isnt is just being a hater, sorry.

Berry
Asamoah
Arenas
Moeaki
Lewis

ANY draft where you hit on half or more of your picks is a damn good one, a draft where you hit on almost every pick (and all of them are team leaders) is fucking outstanding.

If you disagree with that statement, its time to reevaluate what you consider a good draft because in reality, hitting on 3 players in a draft is good and more than that makes it better and better and better.

I know its early and the lacking offseason plays a role in this, but I think a few years from now the 2011 draft will end up being the best one we've had in decades.

Baldwin, Hudson, Houston and Bailey are already flashing the ability to be game changers and I think Powe and Stanzi will be really good players in the future (once they actually get a chance to play)

Moeaki let the team in receptions his rookie year, and had arguably the catch of the year. He got hurt. So do lots of guys. Good production from a 4th round pick. Sucks about his acl.

Javi was taken too early. But, he's a solid nickel and leads the league in avg. return yards.

The fact that Arenas was taken too early obviates any positives about the pick itself.

Again, Pioli wanted a TE, right? You can't pass on Gronk and Graham and consider Brokaki a hit. And lots of people get injured. True. But not everyone has Brokaki's injury history.

I hate this game. Was moeaki the best te pick. Looking like no. Was he a bad pick? Absolutely not.

Do I regret having arenas on the team? Absolutely not. Do I think he's valuable? In a passing league, absolutely.

I hate pioli as much as the next guy. But let's not get ridiculous about criticizing good picks because they weren't knockout picks. The last two drafts will likely end up being solid. Not spectacular. But solid.

I am gonna go ahead and leave the Moeaki one alone because of my bias, but Arenas in the late 2nd and the way he has played means he was a good pick.

Could we have possibly done better? sure, you can always do better, but if you get a solid player at the end of the 2nd round, its not a bad pick.

That's total bullshit. This is a pass happy league. He's not returning punts in a lot of games because he's playing a ton of snaps. And in spread out offenses, he's often covering the #1 or #2 receiver on a defense that doesn't get much pass rush.

Hes a very good nickel corner. And as a punt returner, he's one of the better ones in the game.

He's a very good role player. At the bottom of the second round, he's playing enough of a role to justify that pick.

I've stated this before but the guy can't play outside and he really isn't a threat to run it back for a touchdown. With all the contact he makes his career as a punt/kick returner shouldn't be long. I thought Brandon Banks who wasn't even drafted was a much better option and Travis Daniels would be just as good as Arenas and he can play outside too.

Berry and Asamoah are already good. Lewis is decent. Moeaki, when healthy, is very good. arenas is a very important contributor. Even mccluster, while not worth the pick, can potentially be at least a contributor.

That's total bullshit. This is a pass happy league. He's not returning punts in a lot of games because he's playing a ton of snaps. And in spread out offenses, he's often covering the #1 or #2 receiver on a defense that doesn't get much pass rush.

Hes a very good nickel corner. And as a punt returner, he's one of the better ones in the game.

He's a very good role player. At the bottom of the second round, he's playing enough of a role to justify that pick.

Didnt Arenas shut down Welker a few weeks ago?

He's right that Arenas IS a very good nickel corner and good punt returner.

He's just not much of a playmaker.

You're very happy we have Arenas? He's literally Anyplayer.

I didn't like the pick at the time. Thought it was a bad value. This year the guy has turned it on. He's been a really good nickle back all year. I don't think he's allowed a single TD. That might change this weekend, but its pretty impressive nonetheless. In a pass happy league you need to be three deep at CB.

And for those people saying Lewis is a starter, but isn't a quality starter - he's a 5th round pick. People need to put picks into perspective.

So what? Only in kc would people bitch about a good pick because it wasn't perfect.

It wasn't the best pick. But given his role and that he's played exceptional in both of his roles, it justifies where he was picked.

Second rounder, after McClusterfuck.

You're absolutely right that people would have been pissed. But it's Pioli's job to know more than message board douches such as ourselves. Collectively, CP would have out-drafted Scott Pioli to this point.

Off the top of my head

2005 Chargers
2008 Falcons
2005 Cowboys
2003 Patriots
2008 Chiefs
*05 chargers still had picks left form the Eli/rivers trade including an extra 1st rounder

*08 falcons had 2 firsts and like 18 3rd round picks to work with

*the 08 Chiefs traded Jared for an extra first and two extra thirds

*The 2005 cowboys had 2 firsts due to trades

*the 2003 patriots draft was done by Pioli and was the only one you listed that was a good draft on its own merits without having to give up other players to make it appear better.

Maybe I should have prefaced that with "teams that didnt trade future picks for picks that year arent counted, or the players that were drafted from the extra picks should be excluded.

The 2010 draft of ours was damn good.

To say otherwise is not realistic.

There's pretty good evidence that Carl didn't really run any draft. He gave his HC carte blanche with rare exception. But given that he was the one with final say, you either need to give him credit for 2008, or you can't give him any criticism for the other 20 years, because those weren't "his" picks, save LJ.

People need to understand that you can't hit on every pick. It's impossible. Even the best of them screw up from time to time.

Pioli's drafts have been pretty good. His biggest mistake was trading for Cassel. And taking Tyson Jackson with the third overall pick. Jackson has been improving which is good but at #3 overall they could of got more value than taking a 3-4 DE. Thats a position they should of addressed in rounds 3 or 4 in the draft.

I don't get this whole Patriot way thingy...yada yada it's a whole bunch of bologny. The bottomline is, they got lucky w/ Brady. You get a franchise player like that, you could pretty much say anything you want. If the Chiefs get a player like that, people wouldn't argue as much about Pioli's miscues. They would love the guy. It's amazing how one franchise player makes everything.

So if we were to trade up (affordably) and draft Luck, then Luck gets injured and can't play anymore it would be considered a bad pick? That is pretty unfair. Injuries should not be held against a GM....unless player has injury concerns coming in like Moeaki.

It is even worse if you shit the bed in the most important player in your team and that is your QB.

According to this Jeff, McDaniels is a lock which means Cassel is likely going to stay.

It is the sum total of all decisions vs. opportunity cost.

For that type of analysis, Scott Pioli doesn't deserve a good grade as Chiefs GM. Every GM will have injuries and surprises. Over time, that tends to equal out, unless the GM has a fetish for taking injured players and assuming all will work out like Adewale Ogunleye, sack artist from Indiana who went undrafted with a torn knee, and sat out his rookie year as a result... Pioli doesn't have that excuse. Pioli has whiffed on mostly healthy players...

There were teams interested in trading up for Sanchez. Trading down from the pick for Tyson Jackson would have allowed the Chiefs to draft local Kansas State QB Josh Freeman three years ago...

Apparently Clark bought the idea that Cassel was a "top prospect..."

Personally, I think Clark should be a "hands off" owner...

Anyone that thinks that Piolis last two drafts were bad, is a total morAn.

The guy fucked up on the Cassel trade, most of everything else he has done (player acquisition wise) has been pretty good.

This guy saying that he got the groceries that BB wanted needs to compare the drafts of NE and KC since Pioli has been gone.

KC has BLOWN THEM AWAY and its not even close.

New England:

Solder
Dowling
Vereen
Ridley
Mallett
Cannon
McCourty
Gronkowski
Cunningham
Spikes
Hernandez
Mesko
Chung
Brace
Butler
Vollmer
Tate
Edelman

Chiefs

Jackson
Cassel
Succop
Berry
McCluster
Arenas
Asomoah
Moeaki
Lewis
Baldwin
Hudson
Houston
Bailey
Brown
Stanzi
Powe



Sorry, but if anyone looks at that objectively, there's no way they come to the conclusion that KC's last three drafts have "blown NE's away."

Especially considering KC was drafting in the Top 5 in two of the three drafts.

A good coach can get his players to play to the level of their talent, and put them in the best positions to succeed.

The talent on the defensive side was better suited to the 43.

Those were two players held back by poor coaching.

But look at that Lion defense right now.

There is no way in hell that a team with Suh, Cory Willaims and Nick Fairly should be rated lower than top 10 in rush defense, and lower than top 20 in overall defense.

They are rated somehwere close to the bottom half in rush, and bottom third in overall defense.

That's a guy that doesn't get his team in position to succeed.

The talent available was not nearly as good on the Chiefs, but he failed those guys, and the fact remains, no matter how you try to spin, we did have the core talent for a 43 defense, and in a couple of cases, we are square pegging round holes still.

B###n did extremely well in preseason in 09, and was inactive the first half of the season, and got to play a bit in 2009 late for Philly, and was productive.

That's total bullshit. This is a pass happy league. He's not returning punts in a lot of games because he's playing a ton of snaps. And in spread out offenses, he's often covering the #1 or #2 receiver on a defense that doesn't get much pass rush.

Hes a very good nickel corner. And as a punt returner, he's one of the better ones in the game.

He's a very good role player. At the bottom of the second round, he's playing enough of a role to justify that pick.

Dunlap, Lee, Cody, Spikes, Angerer, Decker, Graham > Arenas

Arenas has more sacks than Spikes. Also has more FF, FR and of course he adds more to the team than being a mere defender.

I think attributing the scheme change for the success of Hali and Johnson is foolish. Johnson is every bit as active and disruptive as a Mike in this scheme as he would be in a 4-3.

Hali had a down year in 2008 and a career year in 2010. He's definitely a better player than he was under Herm, but getting rid of dumb fuck Krumrie and the development of Dorsey helped him a great deal.

IDK Hali had 18.5 sacks in the 3 years he played in the 4-3 and 32 in the 3 years he's played in the 3-4 and he still has 3 more games to notch a few more. A couple of good games and he could have double the sacks in the 3-4 as compared to the 4-3.

Not having his hand in the dirt might play a part in better hand usage for him. There's no way for me to really know if he's stronger or not. Maybe he just looks stronger because he has the room to get started on the plays when he's standing up.

Take out the career year in the 3-4 and the career down in the 4-3. All players have years when they play above and below their ability.

Even if you didn't, those two years average out to his career average, which, after the end of this year, will be about 8.5-9 sacks/year.

I do agree that Hali could have had that good year in either scheme, but we will never know.

All we do know is that once we changed schemes, his productivity went up almost immediately.

And that's different then his play improving when we changed to a 3-4? So the scheme changed at the same he recieved some new coaching but it's only the coaching part that made a difference? LMAO Sure.

If you can't see that he's still a beast now even on the plays when he's putting his hand in the dirt, that his improvement is the direct result of improved technique, then I don't know what to tell you.

Of course, I do believe that you're the guy that told us that you knew that Aaron Curry was going to be a great player because you could see it in his eyes.

How many plays a game is he lining up with his hand on the ground? I might recall one that I noticed but that'd be about it. Maybe "Omega" could gif some of those up for us. Or maybe you could document that for me somehow. Yeah probably not.

So according to milkman Hali only improved his game through improved technique and changing to the 3-4 had nothing to do with it.

Got it!

Arenas has more sacks than Spikes. Also has more FF, FR and of course he adds more to the team than being a mere defender.

Arenas is a very good blitzer. Very good.

Frankly, I'm surprised they didn't bring him more often.

Check that. No I'm not. Nothing this team does surprises me any more.

DJ makes more plays in the 3-4 why is hard to say. Perhaps it just fits his game better or maybe his assignments are clearer and maybe fewer.

In the 4-3 we played Hali lined up with his and on the ground at LDE. He got smothered out of plays with the big RTs right on top of him. He didn't seem to do to good when he played on the right side either as a down lineman.

The 3/4 is designed to give the linebackers more highlight opportunities, no?

Also, all the 'backers are becoming more comfortable in this scheme. The line is playing better, too. It seems to me that, if this defensive scheme is humming along properly, you should see good linebacker stats.

I'm content with the 3-4. To me Hali and DJ are much better players in the 3-4. So what was you're point exactly?

I just dropped by and saw you guys arguing about whether or not it was the scheme or the coaching or the player or whatever that explains the improvement we've seen in DJ's and Hali's performance. That's all.

To me, it's a combination of all those things.

However, the biggest thing is the way we're playing the 3/4. Our line tries to tie up blockers so that the 'backers are free to make plays. It's simple. The main reason DJ has better statistics is that he's free(er) to make more plays closer to the LOS. He still has to fight off blocks and he's doing a very good job of that, but those are typically 1-on-1 engagements and even then he's already read the play well before contact due to the line play.

That's what I was saying.

And you're rihgt. Both players have been freed up because they're playing in the 3-4.

Exactly, so.

I think Hali and DJ would both have improved this year anyhow, but not as much ... statistically.

It's strange how people think that a linebacker in the 4/3 and a linebacker in the 3/4 are the same job. They aren't.

In either scheme, the D-Line has to engage the O-Line to free up the LBs.

DJ always had the ability to make plays, and he flashed that ability before this staff was put into place.

This staff has gotten consistency from him.

As for Hali, let me see if I understand this.

If he is putting his hand in the dirt, there's no way he would have gotten better technically with better coaching?

He wouldn't be able to use his hands as effectively because his hand is in the dirt at the snap?

It's all because he's a stand up LB?

I wouldn't have a problem with Pioli if he hadn't tied the franchise to Cassel for 5 years. That alone should be enough to get him fired.

I have to get some sleep, Mr. milkman. So if we could discuss this tomorrow sometime, it would be great.

In the meantime, no. I'm not saying Hali wouldn't have improved as a DE in a 4/3 (depending on how they ran the 4/3 front and what was asked of the players, of course). Actually, I said in my post that Hali would have improved anyhow ... but the 3/4 is helping him improve his stats.

I attribute Hali's improvement with his hands to his own hard work. The coaches brought in some kind of Chinaman Judy Chopper dude to help and Hali actually hired his own Chinaman Judy Chopper dude during the off-season. In the last interview he did on chiefs.com, Hali attributed his improvement in shedding blockers to the work he's put in on his hands.

But in general, I think a 2-gap, 3/4 will help your 'backers make highlight reels more often because it's designed (in part) for the d-line to draw double-teams. If everybody is doing their job on the line, the 'backers should only be going 1-on-1 against a blocker at worst (we're talking run plays, here). A linebacker vs. a TE or FB is a matchup we want (when we're playing run).

My other point was this; how the d-line plays helps the 'backers in another way. Based on the flow of the play and how the d-line reacts to the blocks at the LOS, the 'backer can "read" the play sooner and flow more quickly to the ball carrier. If he doesn't overrun the play, he should be in good position to make the stop and the worst he's going to encounter is a 1-on-1 block. That's why linebackers tend to make headlines when they play in the 3/4.

I never said it was because of any one thing. That's what you did.

I will maintain that Hali is better in the 3-4 the Chiefs run now as compared to the 4-3 the Chiefs ran the first three years of his career.

Getting Eric Berry back next year is going to bolster the defense.

Getting Jamaal Charles back next year is going to bolster the offense.

Getting Matt Cassel back...

Not having to worry about getting our asses kicked in the playoffs due to end of the world is going be something to look forward too.

Bring on the new year.

So basically, the Patriots' 5 Superbowl appearances and 3 of them wins were mostly due to Tom Brady and Bill Bellicheck? Then why the heck did the Chiefs think Scott Pioli was a major contributor to their success?

Here is a theory: BB & Pioli are & have been in cahoots to keep the Chiefs down from anything promising future threat from beating out the Patriots on the road to the Super Bowl.

& or

It could be revenge from the Bernard Pollard incident idk? In this case, Pioli & BB still have it worked out. Pioli is a rat from the Patriots organization. Thus getting Cassel from them trading a 2nd for him. The Patriots have viewed the Chiefs as a week and vulnerable franchise after the Carl and Herm debacle. They must have got to Clark Hunt early with the notion that Pioli should be the next GM upon firing Carl Peterson.

Now Clark can kiss Piolis rings with BB being the mastermind of this devious plot.

This may sound far fetch, but really what's the evidence show?
