Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli took responsibility for the Chiefs’ disappointing 1-5 start in question-and-answer session with The Star on Wednesday morning. Pioli also discussed the state of the Chiefs during their bye week and reports about his contract status.

Here are some highlights of the interview:

• How surprised are you at 1-5?

“Surprised … or disappointed. That’s where we are. This is certainly not what the expectation was. But it’s where we are. You can’t wallow in it. You work hard and you figure it out. That’s what we’re going to do.”

• What’s been the biggest disappointment?

“The record, the overall performance, the performance by everybody … We all have a hand in this thing, starting with me. Ultimately I’m responsible for the football operation, and we’re 1-5. We all need to do our jobs better, starting with me.

• Have you discussed a contract extension with Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt as reported by CBS? (Note: The Star reported Sunday, citing a source close to the situation, that the Chiefs have not offered Pioli a contract extension nor have discussed an extension. Hunt told The Star that the Chiefs do not discuss contracts publicly.)

“Clark spoke to The Star last week, and that’s our organizational philosophy. We don’t talk about players’ contracts, we don’t talk about coaches’ contracts, anybody who has a contract, we don’t talk about those things. It’s an organizational philosophy that I believe in as well. That’s where it’s at.”

• So where do you think this (CBS’ report) originated, if you nor Clark talk about contracts?

“I don’t waste energy on that stuff. You know what I’ve got to do? I’ve got to get this thing fixed. That’s where I need to spend my time, energy and emotion on is getting this football team fixed. Not chasing rumors because those are the things that are offshoots of what the real problem is. It becomes a rumor, it becomes a story because we’re not winning.

“This isn’t about me and my contractual situation. This is about getting the team right.”

• But if your contract is through 2013, you’d have one year left, and (coach) Romeo Crennel will have two years left because he’s through 2014; what kind of confidence can fans or free agents have that there will be a lame-duck situation here next year?

“I’m not going to talk about the contract, and I’m not going to worry about the contract.”

• What’s your feeling on the job Romeo Crennel has done? Should he hand over the defensive coordinator job to someone else and just concentrate on being the head coach?

“I don’t believe his plate is too full. I’ve watched, whether perception or reality, every head coach has a greater input into one side of the ball or the other, or even some times special teams. Romeo has a couple of experienced coaches on the defensive staff that have a lot to do with game-planning, with figuring things out, and (linebackers coach) Gary Gibbs and (secondary coach) Emmitt Thomas along with some other coaches … this is an experienced staff on defense. Romeo is the coordinator, but I’ve seen this before, and it’s worked, and it can continue to work. There are times we are playing very well on defense.”

• What kind of grade would you give Romeo at this point?

“I think he’s doing a good job of handling this football team in a tough set of circumstances right now.”

• During training camp, you were confident quarterback Matt Cassel could lead this team to a championship. What’s happened to him?

“He wishes he performed better, I think this whole team wishes they played better.”

• Don’t you need an elite quarterback to win in this league?

“You need a good football team to win in this league. You need a good football team that is going to do all the things the right way. Heck yes, you need a quarterback to play well, and you need a team to play well.”

• So what is the hope for this team?

“The hope is we stop doing some of the things we’re undoing ourselves. A big part of our problem is we are undoing things ourselves and we are making mistakes … we’re having penalties at critical times. We’re having turnovers at critical parts of the field. We’re making mistakes on defense and giving up big plays that are critical. We’re having penalties on special teams at critical moments. … The mistakes we’re making, based on the timing of those mistakes are making those mistakes exponentially worse.”

• Is that coaching?

“It’s everything. It’s everything, including me, because I’m the ones bringing players in. And if players are making those mistakes, ultimately, it’s me.”

• So do you not have the “Right 53” you’re always talking about?

“You’re always trying to figure out who the Right 53 are. I’m always trying to figure out who the Right 53 are. Ultimately that stops here.”

• You’ve had four years of drafts? Shouldn’t there be some impact players?

“I think Tyson Jackson is playing well. I think Eric Berry has made an impact. I think Tony Moeaki has made an impact. Right now, there’s clearly not enough players making an impact. You can’t be 1-5 and say players are making an impact. When we won in 2010, a number of those drafted players were making an impact.”

No they're not, Scott. Eric Berry isn't a 100% back from his ACL injury and he's trying to do to much. Jackson and Moeaki are fucking garbage.

This team is going to have this fan base in a fanatic frenzy. I have a feeling Hillis is going to be a fan favorite by week 6.

He's definitely going to be ONE of the stories this year.

And Eric Berry looks to be 100%. Now he gets to have the MONSTER season he was going to have last season.

Poor Clay. He Has to somewhat root against all the great shit that's going to happen just because he wants to hate the regime so bad. Gotta take some of the fun out of what is going to be a blast.

I liked Moeaki's potential his first year on the team but to call him an impact player is not true at all at this point in his career. He has 10 receptions for 94 yards this year. If he had TGs numbers this year, I would agree he was having an impact but TG's numbers through the first six weeks of the season is close to equaling Moeaki's best numbers through 15 games in his rookie year.

In 2010, Berry and Moeaki were good players for us.

I backed Pioli until 2010. At the start of 2011 more things started to point in his direction as signs of fail. And it's only gotten worse. I see through his BS now.

Nice to see the KC media seems to have found their balls.

I love that they didn't just drop the extension talk. Shame they didn't go back to it after pointing out the total failure of everything else.

“It’s everything. It’s everything, including me, because I’m the ones bringing players in. And if players are making those mistakes, ultimately, it’s me.”

What a dick, even when he tries to take the blame he trashes others.

10-17-2012, 12:56 PM
Refuses to basically put any real blame on the QB that leads the league in turnovers and is ranked 33rd in QB rating.

If Pioli, Cassel and Crennel are back next year, I'm finding another team to follow.

I'm not going to have my son grow up to like these losers and be miserable like I am.

I am quite fluent in "GM Speak," I translated King Carl for many years. Fat Scott is not nearly as cryptic as the King.

Let me translate this interview in plain English, minus coach speak spin:

• How surprised are you at 1-5?

“Surprised … or disappointed. That’s where we are. It is what it is. What it is, where it went, WTF? But it’s where we are. You can’t wallow in it. You don't bathe in it. You wipe it off the bottom of your shoe, then scrape your shoe in the grass three or four times. That’s what we’re going to do.”

• What’s been the biggest disappointment?

"I hate myself and want to die. We all have a hand in this thing, starting with me. I have been touching myself irresponsibly for weeks now. Ultimately I’m responsible for the football operation, and we’re 1-5. To be brief let me say: Let there be Peace on Earth, and let it begin with me."

• Have you discussed a contract extension with Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt as reported by CBS? (Note: The Star reported Sunday, citing a source close to the situation, that the Chiefs have not offered Pioli a contract extension nor have discussed an extension. Hunt told The Star that the Chiefs do not discuss contracts publicly.)

“CHunt spoke to The Star last week, and that’s our organizational philosophy. The first thing you learn about Chiefs Contract Club is…..you DON'T TALK ABOUT CHIEFS CONTRACT CLUB! That’s where it’s at, that what it be, fo'shizzle.”

• So where do you think this (CBS’ report) originated, if you nor Clark talk about contracts?

“I don’t waste energy on that stuff. You know what I’ve got to do? I have to take a hellacious dump. After that, I’ve got to get this thing fixed. That’s where I need to spend my time, energy and emotion on is getting this football team fixed. Not chasing rumors because those are the things that are offshoots of what the real problem is. Don't say you love me when it's just a rumor. Don't say a word if there is any doubt. Sometimes I think that love is just a tumor. You've got to cut it out."

• But if your contract is through 2013, you’d have one year left, and (coach) Romeo Crennel will have two years left because he’s through 2014; what kind of confidence can fans or free agents have that there will be a lame-duck situation here next year?

“There are no ducks on the Arrowhead pond. First rule of Chiefs Contract Club....”

• What’s your feeling on the job Romeo Crennel has done? Should he hand over the defensive coordinator job to someone else and just concentrate on being the head coach?

“I don’t believe his plate is too full. Romeo can eat like a mofo. I’ve watched, whether perception or reality, every head coach can only stuff so much into his gaping yaw. Romeo has a greater input into one side of his mouth than the other, or even some times he jams food in both sides of his mouth at the same time. It's amazing, really. Romeo has a couple of experienced coaches on the defensive staff that have a lot to do with game-planning, with figuring things out, and (linebackers coach) Gary Gibbs and (secondary coach) Emmitt Thomas along with some other coaches … this is an experienced staff on defense. Any of them could coach this mess, seriously. Romeo is the lead dog, the big cheese, the kahuna, the BMOC, but I’ve seen this before, and it will not end well, I assure you.

• What kind of grade would you give Romeo at this point?

“I think he’s doing a good job of handling this football team in a remedial, riding-the-short-bus kinda way right now.”

• During training camp, you were confident quarterback Matt Cassel could lead this team to a championship. What’s happened to him?

“Toxic shock syndrome, I'm sure of it.”

• Don’t you need an elite quarterback to win in this league?

“Like John Madden always says :You need a good football team to win in this league. You need a good football team that is going to do all the things the right way. Heck yes, you need a quarterback to play for the good football team and well, if your quarterback plays well, then the football team will be good and you'll win. If not, you won't.”

• So what is the hope for this team?

“The hope is we stop doing some of the things we’re undoing ourselves. A big part of our problem is we are undoing things, like our belt buckles. We're literally dropping trou out there, and it's not pretty. Not pretty at all. And we are making mistakes … we’re having penalties at critical times. We’re having turnovers at critical parts of the field. We’re making critical mistakes on defense and giving up big plays that are critical. We’re having critical penalties on special teams at critical moments. … The mistakes we’re making, based on the timing of those mistakes are making those mistakes exponentially more critical. Did I say "Critical" enough to describe how critical this all is?”

• Is that coaching?

“It’s everything. It’s everything, including me, because I’m the ones bringing players in. And if players are making those mistakes, ultimately, it’s me. Hit me. I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. HIT ME……HIT ME MOTHERF•CKER!!!”

• So do you not have the “Right 53” you’re always talking about?

“You’re always trying to figure out who the Right 53 are. I’m always trying to figure out who the Right 53 are. Have you got a calculator and a slide rule handy?”

• You’ve had four years of drafts? Shouldn’t there be some impact players?

“I think Tyson Jackson is playing well. (Starts laughing uncontrollably, takes several minutes to regain his composure….) I think Eric Berry has made an impact. I think Tony Moeaki has made an impact. Both of them made major impacts on their ACL's, that's for sure. Right now, there’s clearly not enough players making an impact. You can’t be 1-5 and say players are making an impact. When we won in 2010, a number of those drafted players were making an impact. I want to see more of my players get impacted, and with the right diet, a believe we can do that. Now pick up that candy wrapper, I have to get back to monitoring all incoming phone calls and emails.”

After listening to him on 810 and reading this, (not that I am surprised) Pioli can suck a fat cock. I mean he dodged every question and gave lame scripted answers that didn't give us any insight. He doesn't own up to any of the responsibility that he should and leaves us with more questions than answers. I fucking hate this GM and hopefully we lose every game this season, get the number 1 overall draft pick and force Clark's hand into ejecting this dipshit so that someone who takes ownership of the issues and actively works to correct them takes his place. What I find really funny is that when Petro asked him regarding who makes decisions as to who the starting QB is, he states that it falls directly on the coach and he has NO part in it.

I still think Berry turns out to be the better player. He's obviously not 100% and is being used incorrectly on top of it. And I can't be wrong about everything..lulz

After listening to him on 810 and reading this, (not that I am surprised) Pioli can suck a fat cock.

Thanks for pissing me off more Scott Pioli dirt bag muther fucker.

YOU are the biggest mistake of all asshole.

That was a waste of 4 minutes. Pioli is a waste of oxygen.

I backed Pioli until 2010. At the start of 2011 more things started to point in his direction as signs of fail. And it's only gotten worse. I see through his BS now.

Pioli is a fucking troll. He's full of shit with every answer he has. And he tries to the pull the whole "I don't waste energy on stuff like that".

Pioli opted for McCluster, Arenas and Asamoah over Graham, Gronk and Hernandez, yet he moved up for Moeaki.

Either way, Pioli missed because Moeaki has been a shell of his former self this year.

Yup, he came out and proved that all of the shit that we thought he was clueless about is actually true. Didn't even accept the fact that he was completely wrong about Cassel, and that QB was the #1 priority for this team.
That should be enough to convince Clark that he's gotta go.

Fixed:

• How surprised are you at 1-5?

Surprise? Is it a puppy?

• What’s been the biggest disappointment?

No puppy? I am disappoint.

• Have you discussed a contract extension with Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt as reported by CBS? (Note: The Star reported Sunday, citing a source close to the situation, that the Chiefs have not offered Pioli a contract extension nor have discussed an extension. Hunt told The Star that the Chiefs do not discuss contracts publicly.)

“Me contract good. Loooots of moneys. Many many dollars for to put daughter in private school for her not be scared by Chiefs fan.”

• So where do you think this (CBS’ report) originated, if you nor Clark talk about contracts?

“Aliens."

• But if your contract is through 2013, you’d have one year left, and (coach) Romeo Crennel will have two years left because he’s through 2014; what kind of confidence can fans or free agents have that there will be a lame-duck situation here next year?

“Me confused about question. Puppy now?"

• What’s your feeling on the job Romeo Crennel has done? Should he hand over the defensive coordinator job to someone else and just concentrate on being the head coach?

“Romeo doing great job. Sometimes he hold play sheet in right hand, sometime in left hand. My favorite is when he hold it in his pants. Romeo good. Todd Haley baaaad.”

• What kind of grade would you give Romeo at this point?

“9 out of ten for pants holding playsheet.”

• During training camp, you were confident quarterback Matt Cassel could lead this team to a championship. What’s happened to him?

“I am Matt's father. Matt is son of Scott. Scott must protect spawn.”

• Don’t you need an elite quarterback to win in this league?

“Puppy.”

• So what is the hope for this team?

“Me want win super bowel. Like Bill and Tom in old times. Those were fun for Scott. I love the shiny football on stick.”

• Is that coaching?

“Is that a puppy in that box over there?”

• So do you not have the “Right 53” you’re always talking about?

“53 big fluffy puppies on the wall, 53 big fluffy puppies. Take one down, pass it around, 52 big fluffy puppies on the wall!!! PUPPIES!”

• You’ve had four years of drafts? Shouldn’t there be some impact players?

“Scott tired. Scott go home go bed now. Chiefs fans happy now? Scott go bed.”

“I don’t believe his plate is too full. I’ve watched, whether perception or reality, every head coach has a greater input into one side of the ball or the other, or even some times special teams. Romeo has a couple of experienced coaches on the defensive staff that have a lot to do with game-planning, with figuring things out, and (linebackers coach) Gary Gibbs and (secondary coach) Emmitt Thomas along with some other coaches … this is an experienced staff on defense. Romeo is the coordinator, but I’ve seen this before, and it’s worked, and it can continue to work. There are times we are playing very well on defense.”

When I was a kid I would tell my mom I wish I could have this or that. And she would reply "Well you can shit in one hand and wish in the other Let me know which one fills up first"

Personally I bet Matt does wish he played better. But sometimes things are just out of your reach and nothing you do is going to change that.
