Regarding your continued defense of Scott *****, I have a few questions I'd like you to think about.

You mention Andy Reid jumping all over this job, and that ***** didn't leave the cupboard bare. And yes, there is an attractive core around which a good coach can build a team. But how many of those players are Scott ***** draft picks, and how many were here when he arrived?

In four years at the helm, ***** has brought in just 2 players who look to be part of that core: Justin Houston and Eric Berry. All the other key players - Brandon Albert, Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali, Brandon Flowers, Derrick Johnson - were already in place when ***** arrived. This DESPITE multiple early-round picks (that were wasted on players like Tyson Jackson, Dexter McCluster, Javier Arenas, etc.)

The new leadership inherits basically the same exact core that ***** did - except that four years of their careers are gone.

How much of Andy Reid's desire for this job had to do with his belief in the ownership (And what Dick Vermeil told him about the Hunt family when asked)?

How much of it had to do with the cap room ***** hoarded while quality players like Brandon Carr (And soon to be Brandon Albert and Dwayne Bowe, had he been allowed to stay) walked elsewhere?

How much of it had to do with the top draft position the Chiefs find themselves in, thanks to *****'s inability to field a team capable of winning, coached by a man capable of winning in the NFL as the top guy?
