Things were not calm in Kansas City before Todd Haley was fired last year.

In the days after his firing, the situation around the Chiefs was called “increasingly chaotic” as his relationship with General Manager Scott Pioli got worse and the team’s season unraveled with a string of blowout losses. Things would get even weirder when allegations of phone tampering went public, so it’s not much of a surprise to hear Pioli say that he’s not pining for those days.

Pioli called chaos “a waste of energy” while talking up the distraction-free camp being run by Romeo Crennel this summer. Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star writes that Pioli wouldn’t discuss Haley directly, but his message was easily understood as he praised the work going on at camp while consistently making reference to the lack of chaos this time around. He then moved on to glowing praise of Crennel himself.

“Look at Romeo and how he is. People misunderstand Romeo’s calmness and his kindness and the fact he’s so genuine for a guy who’s a flat-line guy. He is not a flat-line guy. He is not non-competitive. He is not Joey Chuckles. He is all business,” Pioli said. “People don’t understand the hours Romeo Crennel works. Even when he was the defensive coordinator he was the last guy out of the office every single night. Every single night. So he’s responsible and teams tend to take on the personality of their leader.”

The Chiefs closed well under Crennel and got some key players back from injury, so we’ll see if the placidity turns into better results. A lack of drama is a good thing, but losing without chaos isn’t too much better than losing with it at the end of the day.

In all seriousness, Pioli is about consistancy. That is the most important thing to him imo and that's why he won't give Bowe a long term deal. If he does, I'll be suprised and eat crow.

On opening day, im going to start the "Official, Haley thread everytime the Steelers score a TD"


We can just condense all the Haley revisionist history and apologists into one singular thread.

The "long hours" praise has been rehashed with every HC here since Gunther.

Dick works such long hours!

Herm too!

Haley never sleeps and subsists on cocaine and meth smoothies!

Fucking bullshit.

Romeo seems to be calm as hell. Plus he was on those coors commercials.

Romeo seems to be the Father figure type compared to Haley who clearly had Jan Brady-Syndrome
