Pioli stopped by our tailgate group today and spent about 30 minutes just talking with us

All BS aside he is just like any of us. Was really candid during his visits and spoke very frank and freely. Went onto say that he does not regret passing on Russell Wilson. His biggest concern was size and durability. Says that jury is still out on whether he will prove to be a legit NFL quarterback. He then said that if there was one thing he has regretted since being here it would be passing up on Andy Dalton.
