I am re-hashing this subject because I want to see what the overall opinion is now that things have settled down.
It's been a weird week for Chiefs fans...
Head coach being fired, speculation, beating the shit out of the champs, etc.

Now that everything has settled down, where do you stand on the HC situation now?
Fisher?
Crennel?
Hiring an up-and-comer or a veteran HC?
Maybe bring in a good college coach?

Poll forthcoming.

There's not really anyone I'm excited about out there. Fisher sucks, i definitely don't want him.

If Crennel shows up the next 2 games and the team looks good, I'd go with him.

EDIT: and Crennel is in the realm of coaches that Pioli would actually hire...

I think Matt Cassel should become the player-coach.

I am on fence still. Crennel maybe if he can repeat what he did last week. I would rather they wait till they can really interview other coordinators.

Personally, I like Crennel. (Always have)
No one can coach the fucking Browns. I think he probably learned a lot from that job and can apply it here. He's conservative on offense and a great defensive guy.

Right now, I want to give him a 2 year deal and see how he does. That may change in the next 2 weeks if we get blown out by our two biggest rivals. I think he will probably beat the shit out of both of them, though.

I voted for Crennel, but that is contingent on who they bring in as coordinators. I f that means keeping cassel and bringing in mcdaniels, oh Hell no!

Too early to tell. If RAC throws out the same performance the next two weeks, then he is probably the clubhouse leader. We crap the bed Jets game style, then I am kind of leaning to a combination of RGIII and the OC from the Carolina Panthers.

This poll is flawed. The "wait til after the season" option is a cop-out. 50% will choose that and you'll never know what the **** they actually believe so it will skew the stats.

the poll should force them to actually make a choice.



EDIT: The Cop-out choice is already well over 50%.

There's a reason for that...

I wanted to see how many people are already sold on Crennel and how many have a wait and see attitude.

I'm going to post the same thing next week to see if the numbers increase or decrease.

Oh, you should have worded it as such. I chose Crennel because i think he'll do fine the next 2 games and should be the coach under those circumstances.

The obvious choice would be to wait until after the year, it's the only logical decision.

"I'm sold on Crennel now" wouldn't have gotten my vote.

Yes, but if I worded it that way then the thing would have been over to the what we originally thought it might be?

Before the Packers game I wanted a new coach. Now I'm open to see if it was a fluke till the end of the year.

That was very cleverly worded if you were purposely trying to make it as confusing as possible.

I'm fairly certain that I will hate whoever Pioli hires, so the sooner he hires someone, the sooner I can start bitching.

Crennel is the best motivator, which is what this team needs right now. He wins by default.

I voted for Crennel. It's obvious that he's motivated to keep the HC title and wants to pull the team out of the toilet. Regardless of whether we win another game this season, I really think he should be given a chance.

FWIW, I saw Crennel on TV the other day, and he said he has an interview after the season is over. So nothing is goiing to happen until the season is over... whenever that may be.

I voted for that "up and comer" thing.

I still believe with all my heart and all my soul and all my mind and all my scrotum that the ideal thing for the Chiefs is to bring in a youngish coach who can give the team an identity and stay with the organization for a good, long time.

Just wanted you guys to know that.

Amazing how the media has no clue whatsoever. The day Haley was fired everyone was 100% certain it was McDaniels or Ferentz. Romeo wins 1 game and now everybody "knows" it's his job to lose.

The track record of the local experts leaves something to be desired, for sure.

Harlan is a rah-rah guy when it comes to coaches/front offices. I value his insight on players a lot more because he spends more time talking to them.

i think crennel is smart enough to know that Cassel obviously isnt the answer, never has been, never will be, but i think he can only be really successful if they hire the really good coordinators.

Romeo + = players like him and played hard for him. All around good gameplan for GB including watching film. Handled QB situation correctly. Candid and isn't into game playing with players and media. May have learned from mistakes in Cleveland.

Romeo - = Cleveland.

If he can manage a 3 game winning streak (irrelevant of what happens in Buffalo this weekend) and is willing to hire an aggressive OC, I'd be happy with Romeo.

EDIT: The Cop-out choice is already well over 50%.

If you make a choice right now, its the wrong choice. We can't sign a coach with an interim in place. I think Crennel gets his chance to earn the job first. Let's say he pulls a rabbit out of his hat and the Chiefs win out or win the division. Should he be let go after that?
