I can understand Mr. Hoover's point of view. Firing Pioli would cause additional chaos and, at this point in the game, the Chiefs could sure use some stability.
However, if I were Clark's counselor, I would argue that we're already in the throes of chaos ... in addition to fielding arguably the worst team in the NFL on Sundays (and certainly not reflective of the talent on the roster), struggling to get value from our recent drafts, and finding ourselves in the midst of a fan revolt. It may seem like a tough decision, but it really isn't. It just means that Clark will have to go to work again to hire a new GM.
Sometimes it's best to walk away from a stinking pile of garbage rather than hope for a breeze.
To date, Pioli has shown nothing ... nothing ... that can reasonably demonstrate he is capable of hiring a proper head coach, glean maximum value from the draft, or keep the fans in the seats. The franchise is floundering in every conceivable, important category and there is only one person to blame ... the person who is ultimately responsible ... and the person who must be let go.
