Still not convinced that Clark will fire Pioli at all let alone during the season.

He won't be fired until the season is over if then. I've never wanted you to be right more than I do now.

Would Lamar Hunt have fired Scott Pioli after 4 similar years to start his time in KC?

Honestly, if the team got embarrased in this game, I firmly believe that Pioli would be out...but the way the game played out probably bought Pioli at least a few more weeks and likely till the end of the year.

My prediction will probably fail.

I hope it turns out to be right, though.

No disrespect whatsoever to the guys that have already answered my question...but can I get an old schooler to shoot me an answer with some thoughts behind it, please.

Guys that lived through the dark years of the mid 70s to late 80s.

How did Lamar deal with his GMs during those times?

Would he have fired Pioli after a 4 year stretch like this one?

Id like to think he would, but I have heard over and over about how loyal the guy was.

BossChief
11-12-2012, 11:04 PM
Really?

Lamar Hunt never fired Jack Steadman.

From what Ive read...Jack was similar to Scott. Was decent at getting talent but couldnt put the whole picture together.

Feel free to call me a dumbass and offer a full explanation as to why.

Its hard to get a read on whats written by non fans and I trust most of your opinions, man.

Much appreciated, in advance.

FYI to those that dont know, Jack Steadman worked for KC from 1960 till 2007...meaning he won championships and that could be the reason Lamar kept him around so long..even though he wasnt the GM the whole time.

Are you 10? Look at the Chiefs history. They don't fire anyone until 10 or 20 year past the time they should.

I wasn't even alive for part of this, but the Chiefs had one GM between Steadman and Carl Peterson. One. Uno. Less than two.

Jack Steadman ran this team for the better part of 20 years of losing, and Hunt never fired him.

Steadman removed himself against the wishes of Lamar hunt.

If the team avoids turnovers like it did tonight and plays hard like they did tonight there are a couple of truly winnable games left.
I am afraid if the team plays out like they did tonight we will have Pioli and Crennel next season.

There are others who have a better understanding than I do about those years, since I lived in California, and we didn't have access to info like we do now.

But from where I sat, he hired some really bad coaches, and the only that offered a glimmer of hope was fire after a strike shortened season, after 4 years of progress in a league where rebuilds did take at least 5 years.

Unless I read things wrong, Jack Steadman built the 4 championship Chiefs teams (counting the 1 superbowl win)

I guess I can understand having a long leash for a guy that did that much for you.

Pioli really hasnt done squat.

Why did he get fired then and who are you referencing?

I want to try and do some research to try and gauge what Clark might do.

I was positive that Pittsburgh was gonna destroy the fuck out of us and that Clark would then fire Pioli tomorrow out of sheer embarrassment...but it didnt play out that way.

Again, I was in California, so the news was just pretty much that he was fired with no details.

It was Marv Levy.

BossChief

Jack Steadmans page on Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Steadman)

Steadman – the franchise’s first general manager – also served as executive vice president, president, vice chairman and chairman in his 47 years with the Chiefs. He won four championships as general manager including the team’s Super Bowl IV title.[1] Steadman and Lamar Hunt were at the forefront of the move to merge the AFL into the NFL.

Steadman was named General Manager to Executive Vice President and General Manager in 1966; in August 1976 he was named President of the Chiefs; and in 1989 was named Chairman of the Board. During Steadman's term as President (1976–1989), the Chiefs entered a period of decline in which they never entered the playoffs for 15 years and only had four winning seasons.

BossChief
11-12-2012, 11:35 PM
Lamar Hunt (August 2, 1932 – December 13, 2006)

Steadman retired as Vice Chairman of the Chiefs on January 31, 2007 after being in the organization for over four decades, dating to their days as the American Football League's Dallas Texans.[

What Lamar did and what Clark will do are only remotely related ... if at all.

Clark knows that you are what your record says you are. He also knows that, after 4 years, we should be much, much more competitive. We have no significant injuries to blame ... no crazy coach ... no strike season ... so the arrow is pointing directly at Dr. Evil and his minions. I think the odds are pretty good right now that Dr. Evil won't make it through the season ... higher that he'll be gone at or near the end of the year.

The media climate back then (wrt Lamar and Jack Steadman) was not what it is now. Hot seats just weren't as hot back then. Sports radio wasn't what it is today, and ESPN wasn't a thing yet.

There is a great deal of truth to this. The rate at which seats get hot these days isn't even comparable to the 70's and 80's. It's like comparing a campfire to nuclear fusion.

Marty is still highly respected by the KC fanbase.

Who better to sell the idea to the fanbase than Marty?

Even if Marty isn't the one to bring the message, the fact that it's been leaked that Marty and Clark have talked, if Clark tells the fanbase that after consulting Marty, he reached the decision to extend Pioli, many, if not most, of the sheep will buy in.

Somebody posted an opinion from an anonymous GM in some article that Pioli was on the road to stay away from Arrowhead, and running from his problems.

Don't remember the thread though.

RAC is gone after this season. There is too many potential established QBs that Pioli can hitch his wagon to with a new QB. The gobbling up ex players of old coaches or regimes has to stop.
Pioli might get one more year but I dont see it. Maybe he is just doing his due diligence for his next job. He can I guess do all his homework and still have it with him when he interviews for another GM job.
At this point its getting harder and harder to care. I cant imagine living in KC right now... Im surprised people arent picketing non stop at Arrowhead

I don't get the feeling that Pioli is gone. I think he'll get to hire one more coach and draft a franchise QB and make a go of it and he will sink or swim based on those two outcomes. RC is as good as gone as they'll hire someone else to make a fresh start w/ the rookie QB.

Of course that is just a guess. We don't really know for sure what Clark is thinking.

If I had my druthers I'd send Pioli packing too just like most other fans but I'm not sure we're going to get that this yr.

As to whether it works, I have little/no faith in Pioli at this point but depending on who they hire and draft may very well be feeling optimistic about the future come spring.
