And now he should lose his job over it.
I honestly believe he's not very smart at all.
Do you listen to Colin Cowherd?
He has mentioned Pioli more than a time or two over the last couple weeks and is always clowning his football acumen.
The last one that immediately comes to mind was when he was talking with someone (I think it was Tedy Bruschi if you want to look up the show or something for a sound bite) and they were talking about Jerry Jones and how little he knows about the intricacies of the game. they sighted a time when Jerry Jones was talking about what had happened to Romo at the end of a game and Jerry said something very "pre school NFL" quality like "They ran a zone type of defense" showing that he didnt even know that the team had run a combo defense and that usually confuses Romo.
Colin immediately started talking about times when he had talked to Scott Pioli and how he got that same feeling from him. That he didnt really know the game at this level very well. He was actually laughing about it.
You could hear Bruschi chuckle, but not comment...we all know why.
I feel bamboozled and should have seen the signs that were all there going back to Piolis first day on the job.
Props go to guys like Talking can, Dane,Hamas and Deez for identifying these things immediately and sticking with their guns.
Those are some of the best posters this site has to offer IMO....even though I disagree with some of them from time to time.
