Dude, Pioli worked his way up from the bottom in the same organization that Ozzie Newsome got his start in. It's the same damn profile. He didn't get hitched to Parcell's daughter until much later. Pioli may suck as a GM but he worked to get where he got to.
The thing with Pioli, DeCosta, all these guys that Hunt needs to ask himself is are they leaders? If yes, then they have a chance. If they are best suited as lieutenants who take orders from others and focus on doing their particular job that they are given well, then they are not suited to be a GM...
