Enoughís enough: Clark Hunt must make major changes now

By SAM MELLINGER
The Kansas City Star

The Chiefs lost their last bit of reasonable hope in a loss so head-shakingly embarrassing it pushed this season from merely awful to pathetic, and some rich men are going to lose their jobs over this.

They need to, anyway, or else a fan base that deserves better is suffering for no reason. If this season were a meal, youíd send it back. Or end up really sick.

Either way, you wouldnít go back to the restaurant, and thatís the part that has the legs to create some real change after only a few of the Chiefsí closest friends stuck around to see the end of an embarrassing 37-20 loss to the Chargers at home on Sunday.

Because this is beyond hope, beyond excuses, beyond any explanation that isnít a fireable offense for everyone who can be fired. This is gross, and imagining it improving requires a stiff imagination or a stiffer drink.

Romeo Crennel needs to fire Matt Cassel as the starting quarterback, because Cassel is now not only bad but hopeless.

Pioli needs to fire Crennel, because heís building a convincing case as the worst head coach in the league.

And Clark Hunt needs to fire Pioli, because every stitch of progress with this roster is undermined by fundamental flaws in quarterback, head coach and philosophy that are a direct reflection of the general manager and serve as something like a parking brake on the franchiseís stated goal of winning championships.

The argument to make major changes goes something like this: Crennel is overmatched trying to be head coach and defensive coordinator, and a roster top-heavy with stars but lacking in depth cannot drag a leaking quarterback through todayís pass-happy NFL. Pioli has not earned the right to choose the next quarterback or a third head coach.

The argument to maintain status quo goes something like this: hey, itís the NFL, and maybe the Chiefs can get really, really, really lucky.

Tickets are already sold for games that are already scheduled, so the Chiefs will go ahead and play out the last three-fourths of a meaningless season, but by now the only drama is whether games will be blacked out, how bad Cassel has to stink before he gets benched, and whether a bumbling product thatís now lost three games by two touchdowns or more will be enough to convince Hunt that his broken franchise needs major fixes.

That win last week in New Orleans felt good for a moment, like a candy bar for that afternoon crash, but weíre going to end up remembering it as empty calories keeping the Chiefs from a higher draft pick Ė a pick that needs to be made by whomever Hunt hires after he fires Pioli.

Because, enough. Weíve seen enough. The quarterback hand-picked and made apparently untouchable by Pioliís faith and New England nostalgia has been booed in both stadiums at Truman Sports Complex and now has 10 turnovers in four games.

Pioliís Chiefs continue to spit into the NFLís wind, and the franchiseís fans deserve better than to slog through a 19th consecutive season without a playoff win while wasting more productive years from Tamba Hali, Dwayne Bowe, Justin Houston and the other good players stuck in a slogging Process that might max out at mediocre.

A roster so galvanized 10 months ago by its beloved Romeo is now a stumbling mess, three blowout losses in four tries, only a comeback win over one of the few organizations in football with less direction keeping them from being winless.

Cassel isnít up to the demands of championship quarterback, and itís not his fault that his bosses are slow to recognize heís just good enough to get beat. Crennel is now 27-44 as a head coach, and Pioli still hasnít been in charge of a playoff win without Tom Brady starting at quarterback.

Four years into what seemed like a great idea at the time, Pioliís teams have an 0-1 postseason record and are working on a third disaster in four years.

Pioli is on record saying Cassel can be good enough to win a title. Everything heís done here for four years is based on that belief, and with that evaluation so obviously wrong, there is no way Hunt can responsibly give him the chance to choose the next quarterback.

At this point, the worst thing that can happen is that the Chiefs win enough games to hold off major changes and strive for mediocrity one more year and waste more of the careers of players under long-term control who can be part of the solution.

The good news is itís hard to imagine them doing even that.

When you think about it, this about the worst position a team can put its fans in: hoping for a season so bad it forces changes. Here comes Huntís chance to show Chiefs fans he shares their disgust in an underperforming team and wonít accept failure.

Your move, Clark.

People keep coming around to my mindset. Good! But this falls one layer short....Clark needs to fall on his sword and admit he has no clue about anything but draining a trust fund! It must be funny watching the Hunt herd out in town downplaying where their coin comes from. If they are forced to fess-up, they must just cringe when they have to finally admit what team their family owns... LOL, I'd make sure everybody knew and we could all point and laugh...

WOW! Dead on target. Nobody with can argue with any of that, not even the slubs at One Arrowhead Drive. It will probably fall on deaf ears or not even be read as I truly believe Clark does not care about the Chiefs that much. Cassel is Pioli's biggest fugg up and at this point he may as well listen to the fans and bench him but he won't tell RC that. He must hang on to his ego. I fully expect the Ravens to end any doubt even in Pioli's mind that Matt can't be the starter.

This is truly pathedic.

I don't put the blame on Clark.

He spent the money to bring in the guy that seemed like the best candidate and paid top dollar to do so. He has also spent a fuckton of cash on players Pioli chose.

Pioli traded for Cassel and made the bold move of giving him that retarded contract and has refused to even try to upgrade from an obviously failed move. Then, slaps the fanbase in the face with lies about competition, insults to the fanbases inteligence like the release about Cassels stats and allowing the coaching staff to be undermanned every fucking year with MAJOR holes and refusing to make necessary changes across the board.

In a normal situation, Pioli would only be responsible for certain aspects, but this isnt a normal situation. Pioli has tried to micromanage every part of the team and therefore should be held completely responsible for his across the board failures.

It's a shame...if the bitch had hedged his bets with Orton...the season might have been salvegable.

I don't blame Clark for bringing in Pioli. I don't blame him for OK-ing the Haley hire, nor the Crennel hire. I blame him for continuing to watch the embarrassment that is Matt Cassel and not stepping in in any way, shape, or form.

I would hope that people around here would know me as a pretty even-keel guy who doesn't get too high or too low on the team easily. I'm considering doing something I haven't done in over 15 years - skipping watching games intentionally. I just don't see the point until a TON of things change.

Fans not showing up will sink in. This was a good article, but I think the other article the Star had up that quoted fans coming out of the stadium saying that they won't be back next week or will be looking to dump their season tickets is more telling.

I'll give Pioli one thing: he's managed to build a team that's not just good enough to keep people's interests. He's instead built one of the most boring and inept franchises in all of football, and people will easily lose interest in this team and stay home. And that is what Clark will notice...

Exactly. I think Pioli's built a much better team than he gets credit here for.
What's hilarious is that we know this team turns from shit show by making three key moves. Fine for Pioli to trade for Cassel, but he should have had competition in year 2 and he should have been canned last year. No excuse for hiring Romeo. No excuse for hiring Daboll.

And the only reason Pioli didn't make those moves is arrogance.

got off reddedit, says its from ESPN

Is it time to replace Matt Cassel?

By Bill Williamson

KANSAS CITY -- It is officially dump Matt Cassel (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=8644) season in Kansas City.

Cassel has never been overly popular in Kansas City. The Chiefsí playoff-hungry fan base has wished their team were in the hands of a more dynamic quarterback ever since Tom Bradyís injury replacement came to Kansas City along with general manager Scott Pioli in 2009.

My mailbag was flooded by Kansas City fans demanding Casselís benching Sunday, and Iím sure the subject will be the main course for columnists and talk radio in the Heartland in the wake of an embarrassing offensive showing by the Chiefs in a 37-20 defeat to San Diego (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/gamecast?gameId=320930012&action=summary) on Sunday.

Expect pressure on Cassel to grow until he is either removed as the teamís quarterback or the team decides to move away from him after the season.

Much was expected from Kansas City this year, but with a quarter of the season over, playoff hopes are starting to fade as Cassel and the Chiefs are now 1-3. The Chiefs have been outscored by a league-worst 77 points in the first quarter, they havenít scored a touchdown on their opening drive since the 2010 season and they are the only team this season never to play with the lead.

After an inspired overtime win at New Orleans in Week 3, the Chiefs had the chance to tie San Diego for first in the AFC West. But Kansas City quickly showed themselves, the Chargers and their antsy fans that they were not ready to become a first-place team. Kansas City, which finished with six turnovers, committed three turnovers in the first quarter and trailed 17-0. Cassel threw three interceptions as the Chiefs were suffocated by a much improved, dangerous San Diego defense.

The truth is that the Chiefs' offensive line gave Cassel little time to work and Kansas Cityís running backs lost three fumbles, including two by beloved running back Jamaal Charles (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=11307).

Kansas City right tackle Eric Winston (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=9652) said Sunday's poor performance was a failure by all 11 offensive players. He also believes ďa coupleĒ of Chiefs will likely take the brunt from the media. While Winston didnít say Casselís name, it's clear he's expecting to hear calls for Casselís removal.

Winston is right. It has already started. Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel was asked after the game if he is considering a quarterback change, and Cassel was asked about it in his media session that lasted less than 90 seconds Sunday. Crennel said he is not considering a change. He said he stuck with Charles despite his fumbles and he is sticking with his quarterback.

I spoke to former Kansas City running back Jackie Battle (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=11197) about Cassel, and he expects it to be a tough week for his former teammate.

ďI donít think people were always fair to Matt (in Kansas City),Ē Battle said. ďI like Matt. He can do a lot of things. He was my leader when I was with the Chiefs.Ē

San Diego safety Eric Weddle (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=10481) said he thinks Cassel is ďsuper athleticĒ and capable of winning games, but he acknowledged that falling behind 20-0 is tough on any quarterback.

- Monday Night HQ
ďNext week, he will come out and be great and he will silence the critics,Ē Weddle said. ďThatís the way it is with quarterbacks.Ē

I think Crennel believes that and thatís why he is sticking with Cassel. Hereís another reason why Crennel wonít make a move: Who would be Casselís replacement? The basis of any position change -- especially one as colossal as quarterback -- is the belief in the replacement.

Does anybody believe Brady Quinn (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=10466) would be a better option than Cassel? What about second-year third stringer Ricky Stanzi (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=14080)? Are either of these players capable of turning the Chiefs around?

If you think so, youíre fooling yourself, but rational thinking is often thrown out the door when a team hasnít won a playoff game in 19 years.

If Cassel is pulled this early in the season, it will be a shame. He is the only quarterback available who gives this team a chance to win. He hasnít been awful this season. Yes, he had a poor showing Sunday. But so did the rest of the offense. This offense was the No. 1-ranked offense in the NFL through three weeks and Cassel was a big reason why the Chiefs won at New Orleans. After Week 3, Cassel was a respectable No. 16 in ESPNís Total QBR.

Teams bench quarterbacks when they are completely lost. Cassel is not lost. He is just not good enough right now to be the difference-maker, a reason why this could be his last season in Kansas City.

The Chiefs have the makings of a good program and they have a lot of talent. If they donít make the playoffs and Casselís play doesnít improve, Iím sure the team will seriously consider making a move and drafting a quarterback.

That is fair. If Cassel can win this year, then wait to make the change. The Chiefs decided to build around him this year. If it doesnít work, itís time to pull the plug on him. Just donít do it now.

I think Pioli should have his scouts jump inside USC QB Matt Barkleyís mind. They must find out everything they can about West Virginiaís Geno Smith, Arkansasí Tyler Wilson and Tennesseeís Tyler Bray.

Itís definitely time for the Chiefs to be thinking about a different quarterback for the future other than Cassel. But the future is not now.

I disagree with the bolded part. What is the point in paying Pioli if he will dictate to him what QB starts? You can't be ok with whom Pioli picks as HC and then question his choice at QB. This needs to be the season where Clark started it by saying "You pinned your hopes on Cassel Scott. If he fails you will be fired." Now did any of that happen? Doubt it, but I respect Clark not micro managing those who work for him. Now I think he needs to fire Pioli after this season after 4 years of mediocrity.

Absolutely.

The move NEEDS to be made this offseason, too. Clark needs to be decisive.

This should be a desirable spot for any prospective GM.

All he would need to do is draft a good quarterback and hire a good HC and then hit a few doubles in the draft...beyond that he would just need to do his best to keep the talent in house.

Good managers step in when their subordinates are clearly struggling. That's not micro-managing. From what we've seen, Clark's idea of managing is paying and running away.

Well, Dimitroff for one. Even in 2009, DeCosta was my guy (and a few others here as well).

Pioli's draft record, whether he had final say or not, sucked. His record in free agency was garbage. Hell, he didn't even want Brady in 2000.

Pioli was the "name" but if anyone had bothered to look deeper, you have seen, as I did, many, many flaws.

Good managers step in when their subordinates are clearly struggling. That's not micro-managing. From what we've seen, Clark's idea of managing is paying and running away.

Or fire them which is what I am hoping he does after this season.

This. Even though Dimitroff was hired a year before. But New England's draft record from 2004 to 2008 was fucking horrible and main reason why alot of us wanted nothing to do with New England's style of building a team which was mainly getting lucky as hell with Brady.

Dimitroff was in 2008 and took over a team with a pick high enough to take a franchise quarterback.

The truth is that the Chiefs' offensive line gave Cassel little time to work and Kansas Cityís running backs lost three fumbles, including two by beloved running back Jamaal Charles (http://m.espn.go.com/nfl/playercard?playerId=11307).

I will be curious to see PFF's rating in this game.
I'd bet that they only attribute 2-5 pressures and one sack to the O-Line, and 1 sack.

If Cassel is pulled this early in the season, it will be a shame. He is the only quarterback available who gives this team a chance to win. He hasnít been awful this season. Yes, he had a poor showing Sunday. But so did the rest of the offense. This offense was the No. 1-ranked offense in the NFL through three weeks and Cassel was a big reason why the Chiefs won at New Orleans. After Week 3, Cassel was a respectable No. 16 in ESPNís Total QBR.

Proof that Williamson is a fucking moron.

I wouldn't go as far as "stupid" but Berry clearly isn't right. Whether it's physical or not remains to be seen but it's sure gotten to him mentally.

That said, one out of four even sucks in baseball, let alone football.

When you're picking #3, #5, #26 and #11 and you only come away with one legitimate player, the odds aren't good that you'll hit the next time out.

Same type of team he had success with in New York, is in place here. Strong running game and nice set of receivers. He could have developed nicely here, as we had no need to rush him as a n00b either - Huard or Croyle could have took the lumps the first year and eased his way into the lineup late in 2009 when the schedule became easy. Not to mention no Tyson Jackson, Matt Cassel or Mike Vrabel and we could have had Patrick Chung/James Laurintaus/etc. All would have been better than the clusterfuck we ended up with in 2009.

Under no circumstances should Peeholi be allowed to draft another player for this franchise, especially a potential franchise QB.

Pioli can't hear you from the sounds of having the number one offense in the NFL.

Oh, and Cassel has more yards through four games than...any other chiefs QB...he also has 10 turnovers and is completing less than 60% of his passes. Oh, and he has 4 or 5 TDs to go with his turnovers...(one of those TD's went to the chargers defense)

Yeah ... there's something wrong with Berry. Respected Planeteers have said that his knee is okay, but I'm unconvinced. Those surgeries don't go perfectly every time and he may not yet be entirely healed. And, of course, there's also the mental aspect of the injury as you say.

The sickening thing about all of this is that Herm (God, am I about to really say this?) could probably have done a better job of making those 1st round picks than Pioli. Then, you have the added problem of converting Dorsey into a 3-4 DE which (I continue to assert) is inconsistent with his nature or talent. In other words, not only have we whiffed on picks entirely, we made little use of good picks we had (Hali being the exception).

Frankly, it's an incredible situation. I'm not sure you could screw this deal up any more had you intentionally made every effort to do so.

It's painfully obvious to me that the game has simply evolved beyond Romeo's defense. Gimme Rex Ryan's 3-4 and a real QB, and this team is a contender.

Chris Meck

I know this.
I moved to Missouri in 1980. I was in third grade. I had never had a pro football team close enough to call a 'home team' before. I was 8.

In all that time, I have never rooted against them-not Bill Kenney, or Steve Fuller, or Blackledge, or Jaworski, or Deberg, or Krieg, or of course Montana, not Bono, Grbac...
until now. I literally hope every time Cassel drops back that he throws a pick. Not tipped-pass-pick, I want him to throw a who-the-hell-was-he-throwing-it-to-pick. I watch the game, and my emotional investment is in willing Matt Cassel to suck so bad that no one could possibly defend him anymore.

That's the only way to have any hope for the future. I feel bad for guys like Hali, who are watching their prime years slip away behind a loser.

I'll watch all season. It doesn't hurt anymore. I'll tell you this, though: If Cassel is still the QB, this will be the last season.

The saga in KC reminds me of one that I witnessd in Houston a few years back. If you remember, the Texans hired another "GM of the decade" in Charlie Casserly to build the franchise. Casserly LOVED David Carr and hired a defensive -minded HC in Dom Capers. The franchise sucked for years, due in part because Casserly was just a baffoon at evaluating draft talent. 5 or so years passed and the team wasn't getting any better. Casserly was absolutely married to Carr and threw Dom Capers under the bus. They fired Capers and hired Kubes and Casserly FOECED Carr on him. AFter 1 season, Kubes had enough and made it clear that he could NOT win with David Carr, and Casserly was out. Enter new GM - Rick Smith new QB Matt Schaub, and a new direction (Good HC, QB & GM) and the rest is history. THIS needs to happen in KC.

Bob McNair realized he made a terrible mistake with Casserly. He was smart enough to realize that the only thing worse than the mistake, would be if he kept it around. He knew it would set the franchise even further back and could ultimatley doom it.

There is a lesson here for Clark. He needs to start over immeduately after this season. It is a copy-cat league so maybe he'll take notice if the TEXANS win the Super Bowl, giving them just as many Lombardi's as the Chiefs, with 40+ less years trying...:hmmm:

ERRRNNTT!!

El wrongo, Capitan! And a sad statement besides.

I meet people all the time (foooootball fans and non-fans alike) who are familiar with the Chiefs personalities including people like Stram. It's actually sort of strange, but Lenny Dawson is a pretty well-recognized name as are people like Buck Buchanan and Willie Lanier and Priest Holmes.

The problem is that we have sucked so long that we aren't on anyone's radar ... generally speaking.

But, KC has a song, a steak, and a jazz style. It isn't a complete freaking wasteland akin to someplace like Cleveland which is known solely for its Cleves, for crying out loud.

Matt Schaub is a slightly better verison of the shit we have bitched about the Chiefs have done. Trading for another team's backup, not to mention history isn't on his side being a 3rd round pick. Like I said Houston isn't winning a Super Bowl with Schaub. Baltimore or New England will knock them out of the playoffs once again.

You realize they almost beat Baltimore in Baltimore with their 5th round rookie?

They are by far and away the best team in the AFC. Not even up for debate right now.

Normally i would agree, but we dont know what Schaub is truly capable of yet because i dont think he has ever started a playoff game?

Hes proven hes a solid regular season QB though, other than being injury prone. Hes about on a Trent Green level or maybe even better.

What if the Packers would have listened to your advice and never traded for Brett Favre? You just can't accept generalizations as fact - there are exceptions. Matt Schaub is one of them. He could QB my team any day - they built that team right. They don't depend on him for everything, they depend on him to make plays when they're there but not to force them when not. They have loads of talent, are very deep,and are very well coached. They are THE team to beat in the AFC. Plus, they will likely have home field.

Trent was good enough- the Chiefs _efense wasn't. Houston has one of the best defenses, if not the best, in the NFL.

No, we don't know that. What we know is that Trent Green isn't enough to overcome a defense that can't force a punt.

Yep. It actually worked in their favor as they were able to acquire LOADS of depth. They can lose pro-bowl players and replace their production easily. Shoot - Arian Foster even was on their practice squad for a bit... They have a system in place now.

Obviously he was no Joe Montana but still, I think you are not giving him enough credit.

If we could get Trent Green production for eight to ten years out of a QB, we'd have a great chance of winning a SB. This would be franchise-level production in my view.

Are you kidding me? Gosh, I can't believe some of the hate Trent receives around here, he has to be one of the most underrated players in recent Chiefs history. Everyone seems to forget just how incredible Green was against Indianapolis, take out Holmes' fumble and that phantom PI call on Tony G, and Green would have outplayed Peyton in that game.

I have to agree. While I don't view Green as Tier One, Elite Level QB, he was certainly good enough to win playoff games and a Super Bowl.

IMO, he's the second best QB in Chiefs franchise history and yes, that includes Montana, who was on his last legs.

If Trent had only had a defense from 2002-2005...

Ass-i-nine! When you score on every drive I think your QB is ok. When your defense can't stop a single drive I think they are suspect.

You can watch a QB play the game over a period of a few games and see whether or not he has the "it" factor.

I loved Damon Huard hard and fast for an entire season.

Doesn't take much to get me to go down on a coach or player, man. Just be slightly above average and go about it with a bit of swagger.

These fuckers suck.

I'm good though, still got the biggest, chocolatiest penis in the AFC West to get my fix.

Win playoff games, if not make the Chiefs a Super Bowl contender. He would have far more offensive weapons than he ever had during his day. And I actually think, believe it or not, that he and Haley would have been a good combination.

But more than that, his leadership alone would have the team united, which would go a long way towards a championship.
