To address the OP, I won't tel you what Pioli should have done.
I've discussed that before.
But I will tell you what Pioli should not have done.
He should not have blown a draft pick trading for that useless piece of garbage.
One of the primary reasons I didn't want Pioli in KC to begin with, other than the misconception that Patriots have a good draft record with Bellichick and Pioli, is that I knew that he would bring Cassel to KC, and I wanted no part of him.
How the hell does a man have 3 years around that piece of shit QB not know that that QB is a piece of shit?
What is worse is that he absolutely refused to bring in any competition, either through the draft or free agency, or trade.
The Lions traded a 6th or 7th round pick for Shaun Hill in 2010.
Meanwhile, we think that Tyler Palko is a backup QB.
Seriously, Brody Croyle, Tyler Palko and Brady Quinn?
Are you ****ing high Scott?
