I don't trust RAC to groom his ball hair.
I don't think Pioli would have any type of adverse affect on a QBOTF. As long as he's forced to draft Geno Smith, I'm fine. God knows he's shown loyalty to the starting QB.
If Clark forces Pioli to:
1. Re-sign Bowe.
2. Draft or trade up for Geno Smith.
3. Replace Crennel with someone outside the tree.
4. Cut Cassel.
Then I could stomach if Pioli sticks around. Sure, I want Eric DeCosta as much as the next guy, but I'm not going to sit here and pretend that we're going to get everything we want. I want the QB, I want the coach. Plenty of asshole GMs have won despite their personalities. You need the coach and you need the QB. The rest will fall into place.
I'm just not getting my hopes up that Pioli is gone.
Give me Geno Smith, and I can suffer through the rest. After all, what would Chiefs fans do without something to bitch about?
