View Full Version : Chiefs Is Pioli going to keep his job?

I have no fucking clue anymore.

I thought it was obvious after the Raider loss that he would. The Chargers game only offered further proof.

One thing is for sure-- this team is going 1-15. Normally that's enough for an owner to fire all the assholes in charge.

I see this media blitz Pioli is doing though. And now today's game of moving deck chairs around on the Titanic. It's very suspicious to me.

I really hope SOC continues to gain strength and that it REALLY makes a statement against the Bengals. Because if it doesn't, I think we're fucking screwed.

I figure he will play GM until his contract is up. No other team would keep this bum employed through all of this.

Only the Chiefs.

I don't see how it's possible.

I think he'll be let go.

If he is, that might just be enough for me to take a break from this team until he's gone.

Why not? He'll draft us that first round QB we've all wanted for the last three decades and become the hometown hero!

If they lose out and get the 1st pick, Clark would have to be a complete idiot to not clean house.

Having that pick would make the Chiefs look good to a potential GM and HC.

Yes. we'll eek out 5 games somehow and Pioli will get extended to continue on with the process.

I've been vocal saying that Pioli has already signed an extension and that he will be here next year.

I want to be WRONG more than anything.

I think he's coming back. He just released our starting CB that he just signed this past offseason. If he's allowed to do that he's coming back.

I keep vacillating on this, but a day like yesterday with the interview and with todays news... he's gonna be here in '13.

Clark has been completely brainwashed, if pioli was as good as gone... we wouldnt be hearing a ****ing peep out him and todays move wouldnt have been made.

Of course, you know... this means WAR.

I don't see any plausible reason or that Clark would keep him another year. That said **** if I know??!?? I want him fired so bad everybody wants Pioli fired but it doesn't seem like we will get our wish? Bull shit if he doesn't get fired. I think he is going get fired by seasons end but that's just based on hope.

suds79
11-05-2012, 02:02 PM
Whether you're a person who believes Clark wants to win or only cares about money, I see reason to fire him.

Wants to win? (Hired the big name GM a few years back)

- Fires Pioli. All the backlash. Romeo can't be brought back and Scott can't be allowed to hire another HC. This was to be the big year and it's epic fail.

Only cares about $

- Season ticket renewal will be down bigtime if Scott is back. I don't think QB alone will do it. We all agree there's not exactly Andrew Luck sitting out there.


I think he'll do it towards the end or after our last game.

I think this is the correct answer. It's the only plausible explanation for Clark's inaction.

I don't know what it's going to take, though ... to force Clark into a move, I mean. How bad are we supposed to get? How many poor decisions have to be made? How many good players must be lost? How big is Nibiru?

I don't like thinking about these questions.

Pioli is a terrible talent evaluator of talent and a terrible business-man.

That said, Chunt is far too much of a pussy to see this and/or do anything about it. The firing will have to happen after we go through another season with these amatuers. Fuck this team, I don't even bother looking forward to the games anymore.

To go 1-15 in your fourth year of "rebuilding"? Just doesn't seem possible anyone could survive that.

Still, I worry that Pioli will convince Clark that the turnovers are responsible for the disastrous season, and that it's simply a terribly fluky thing -- a "100-year flood" kind of deal. He'll tell Clark that he'll make some changes, luck will revert to the mean and next year we're back in the playoff hunt.

I see all this as a last ditch effort by both Pioli and Crennel to try and save their jobs.

My best guess is they will both be gone at the close of the season. I see a 2-14 or 3-13 season at best. They will probably get one more "lucky" win.

There is nothing positive happening right now.

There are some excellent GM choices but I don't know if Clark could speak to them in mid-season and possibly some good coaches as well.

The Romeo soft and nice guy approach sucked and Pioli's draft/trade/free agent record is also shit.

I'm going by the assumption that he is. That way it's either not quite as profound a disappointment when he does or a pleasant surprise if he leaves.

If Clark is making any business decisions based on luck, he's going to be a poor motherfucker before too long. That would force him to sell the team however...

No businessman worth one half of one shit would do business like that... If he's that gullible, he's more fucked than we are as fans.

Doesn't he own like half the silver in the USA? Also, the owners made their money on the TV deals. It hasn't very little to do with selling tickets. You know how some people have hobbies sewing or even collecting baseball cards? Clark's hobby is owning the Chiefs and some soccer teams.

It's not about money at all.

But finishing LAST 3 out of 4 years is no fluke. Especially when after 4 years the team you built is arguably worse than the team you started with.

He has to fire the coach. Does he really think that he doesn't deserve to go first? There is no rational mind that can successfully argue that Scott Pioli has done the things to keep his job. Really?! Stanford Routt?

Not because cutting Routt was a bad move, but because it more or less guarantees Pioli's continued presence at 1 Arrowhead Drive.

I've been trying to understand why this would be the case. Because GMs on their way out the door don't make bold decisions like this one?

I don't think that proves anything if we don't know what Clark and Pioli are talking about. For all we know, Clark is saying to Pioli, "You have the rest of the season to make some changes and prove to me this team can win games. If you don't, your ass is fired"

In a way yes. Not saying Clark had knowledge of the decision to cut Routt, but unless Pioli gets terminated in the next 24 hours then he obviously has 100% control of the team and can make decisions as he may see fit.
