You sound like a fan that has been absolutely beat down, and is pretty unhappy with the direction this team *may* be headed.
I'm in no way saying you're wrong to feel this way. It's just a sad sign of what this team has become when its long time knowledgable fans reach this point.
Your concerns are legit. The sad part is that these concerns were the first thing to spring to your mind when Pioli wasn't immediately shown the door. Why? Becasue we've all come to expect the Cheifs to not do the right thing. That is the tradgedy of being a Chiefs fan in 2013. We expect the worst to happen. Hell, we have the first pick in the draft, and there isn't a one of us that hasn't had the thought that they are completely going to screw the pooch with the pick. It's frustrating.
On a personal note, 2010 did me in with heavy emotional attachment to the Chiefs. 2010 was a complete and total mirage, and I bought in completely. After the shit years of Herm I almost mailed it in, then Pioli and Haley show up, win a division, and it looked like the Chiefs had hope. But even before the Ravens playoff game, the Raiders absolutely exposed us. I gave up letting myself be tied to this team after that playoff game.
