View Full Version : Chiefs Does the fact that Romeo is still the HC reflect Piolis future?

...if Pioli fires Crennel midseason, it leads me to believe he will be allowed to hire his 3rd HC next season.

The fact Crennel is still here makes me think Pioli is on his last leg...it's Crennel or bust for him.

Pioli is not firing anyone.

He's just waiting for the axe.

I think they're all completely aware that their days are numbered and are just waiting to get fired at this point. Pioli\Crennel\the whole bunch. But for some reason it's just flat not happening from above.

The fact that Daboll is the OC gets RAC fired and the fact that RAC is the head coach and DC gets Pioli fired and the fact that Pioli is GM should get ___________.

The fact that Romeo is so bad that he deserves to be fired after 8 games is in itself a fireable offense by Pioli just for hiring him. No one gets fired until Pioli does. Then the dominoes start falling.

I see two options:

a. Wait the season out and fire everyone from the gm down.

b. Get a new QB in which case you are giving Pioli 3 more years. This option could be carried out with Romeo or more likely with coach 3.

Of course I favor a), but I'm not Clark.

The only reason, imo, that Pioli is here is because he negotiated himself one heck of a contract and it would be taxing for Hunt to fire him now.

Because there is no point in firing them right now.

What is that going to accomplish exactly?

The Chiefs are all of a sudden going to be inspired by Mo Carthon?

Clark is going to let this team ride the suck wave till the last 1/4 of the season, just like he did with Carl.

Yup. There really is no point to fire Pioli right now.
He needs to be here to take the brunt of the blame.

Hopefully Hunt is doing the prepwork on finding a replacement though....

What head coach would hire on with Pioli remaining as the GM?

Eric Mangini?
Josh McDaniels?
Charlie Weis?

Haha

There really is only one option in this scenario...

As much as I want to see bloodshed in the FO at Arrowhead, firing either Crennel or Pioli may cause a spark with the team creating some unwanted wins.

It really serves no purpose to fire them right now, its not like we have anything to gain by winning games.

Firing Pioli RIGHT NOW does multiple things.

1. It opens the market for us to openly shop for the new GM, instead of having to hire one in the small window of an offseason.

2. It sails the white flag for the remainder of the season so the rebuilding starts... The whole organization goes into evaluation mode instead of tryomg to squeeze out wins at all cost in the next 8 weeks.

3. It acknowledges to this reeling fanbase that we have a ****ing owner that gives a shit.

Obviously it ain't gonna happen though, you're right about that.

No, but it does get the word out that there are vacancies to potential candidates and it would show the fans that Clark really does care about winning.

I don't want Clark to fire Pioli until the end of the season. We all know he's as good as gone, just a matter of when.

I want Pioli to watch as he gets raped by Haley and Peyton 2X, not take an early vacation.

Stick Romeo/Pioli with this $3itty season. They made it - they should be responsible for all of it before they GTFO...

Clark can shop for a GM before he fires Pioli. We do need to get out in front of the coaching thing though its going to be a bloodbath this off season.

Sorry to say this but I have seen nothing out of Clark to believe he will be firing any one. I firmly believe we enter next season with Pioli as GM RAC as HC and Cassel still on the roster. Don't like it but it is what it is.

I don't think he does give a flying fuck about winning. I don't think he will sell the team either. He gets that NFL tv contract maney every year thats all he needs.

You are out of your mind. There is a slim chance Pioli keeps his job, I dont believe it will happen but I will give you a sliver of a partial piece of some possibility on that one.

The other 2? You have to be trolling or smoking crack.

I disagree. I think IF Pioli fired Crennel, he would lose his job by default. He was brought in to bring the stability of Pittsburgh. 3 coaches in 4 years is not stability.

Micjones
11-02-2012, 03:59 PM
I actually think the opposite is true.
No way he could survive two in-season firings of his head coaches, in as many years.

The most realistic reason Piloi and RAC will not be fired, according to Baldinger, is the $30 mil price tag that would come along with it.

I'm not buying any reasoning or rumors that finds a way to explain pioli & co staying on.

What we're witnessing is truly one for the record books.

No, Clark has to clean this up, theres no way around it... fait accompli.

You're not wrong at all.

Yet, the DECISION that needs to be made HAS to be plainly evident to Clark... it will happen probably within 48 hours of seasons end.

Its the only choice he has left, and he SURELY knows it... CLEAN IN 13.

Groves
11-02-2012, 08:51 PM
Oh to be a fly on that wall.

Pioli had to be nervous long before now. His easiest path to retention was to begin the conversations with Clark about the firing of RAC.

Our only hope is that Clark had the brains to halt that discussion rather quickly. At that point, they all see it coming. The only question is when, and I don't blame Clark at all for not tipping his hand.

The brains part, though...I'm slightly worried.

This. I don't give a shit if Pioli and Crennel are fired during the season, just as long as the DECISION to fire them has been made. Clark needs to be searching for replacements NOW. However he can fire them both at the end of the season.

There is no reason to fire Crennel or Pioli mid-season. Both will be gone at the end of the year and firing Crennel, even after his horrific display this season as a coach and leader, will only cause more apathy in the locker room.

Everyone knows the deal. Play it out, get it over with and move on. I'd like to think that Clark has already quietly begun forming a search committee for the next team president and GM.
