At the very basic level of Pioli's performance, he should be skewered for
1. Failing so miserably in his evaluation of the most critical position on the field
2. Sticking withi said failure for nearly an entire season or more.
To me, that's why he should be fired. His first move was such a collossal failure he doesn't deserve to stick around. It wasn't as if Cassel was a very your pup and was having growing pains of an average young QB. Cassel has been so atrocious, with zero upside and was Evident two years ago.
If the chiefs are in a position to draft a franchise QB, in no way do I want Pioli in the evaluation room of the qb. If he can't get it right with a guy he's seen everyday in practice on NE there's no way he can get it right with a pro prospect from college.
Not to mention the 100 other reasons he should be fired.
