Next GM Short-List: Who's your pick and why?

There is lots of talk about Pioli getting the boot, but I haven't seen much about possible replacements. Who is available? Who would have a chance at success (not mediocrity) Who makes your short list of candidates?

I am not any kind of expert on NFL execs, but I want one how understands that modern NFL franchises need to build around a franchise quarterback.

I just want my Chiefs back... I miss caring about the game on Sunday.

What say you?

The 2012 Chiefs lack talent. Only homers think we have talent.

You're gonna lose the Dex bet.

Actually, it was after their third Super Bowl appearance.

Jacksonville went for youth, yet was in the AFC Championship Game quickly and repeatedly won playoff games. Carolina was a disaster and didn't get better until after John Fox and Marty Hurny took over eight years later. Carolina endured a 1-15 season post Polian as well.

I'm on the iPad so I can't link so you'll need to search for Polian's militant tactics.

Also, I wouldn't lay any bets that Chris has learned enough to become a successful GM in a short time period.

Outside of QB, there are very few positions of immediate need. There are no dominate teams right now and if the Chiefs can acquire a QB and fill a few holes, they'll be right back in the thick of it come 2013.

But it's going to take the right moves in order for that to happen.

This team needs more than I thought before the season started. To be fair, we didn't realize how much of a drop off we would get with Carr gone. We also are seeing Berry not fully healthy(hopefully that is the reason). Most of all, I think this team quit pretty early on. Some of that shows character issues, some of that is the QB and head coach.

We need some work for sure but a good QB makes players better. I think this roster inspired plus a QB looks a lot different. If we lose either Albert or Bowe its certainly going to look even worse. Keep them both, get a QBOTF, a solid head coach, and then fix the Dline and CB2. Maybe we aren't SB bound after that but I think its a pretty decent team.

Last year with a motivated team and decent QB we looked alright to end the season.

I had a friend who landed a job with the Colts many years ago. The first time we ran into each other in a complex hallway, I congratulated him. All I received was a nod as he kept walking. I didnít know what to think. After the work day, my friend phoned to apologize.

ďYou understand why I canít stop and talk to you in the building,Ē he said.

I didnít.

He was afraid Polian would see us exchanging pleasantries.

ďHe hates all of us, too,Ē the friend said.
Quote:
I was reminded recently about how a former Colts player was in a hallway, talking to a then-current player, when Polian walked up. The boss didnít care for the former player, and refused to acknowledge the manís presence. A short time later, a nearby phone rang. The current player explained the former player had to leave.
Quote:
Like Phil, I had a similar experience with friends who landed jobs with the Colts. Some of these people were family friends, people I deeply care for. Once the word reached Polian that they were close to me, all communication with those people stopped.

At Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, I walked up to one such friend and to say hello. Bill Polian was just a few feet away. The friend nodded and shuffled away. I didn't know what was wrong until a month later, when people told me that if anyone within the team was seen speaking with me, they could lose their jobs.

Like Phil, I couldn't get out of my head the unbelievable culture of fear that the insecure, violently paranoid Polians used to keep control of the organization. And I won't lie. I'm glad Polian and his equally odious son were fired.

Not reassigned.

Not 'allowed to resign.'

Fired.

It was a fitting end to two people who simply lacked the ability to treat others decently and respectfully, especially if those others worked under them.

I say that bc our team is really already in place for most the part. we need a hc who can fire this team up and get the players to play their hearts out. a guy the team listens to and who knows how to scheme and put gameplans together. we just need a gm who is good with contracts and sees our team from an outside perspective and what would help and whats hurting. were past the stage where we need a draft guru to draft key anchors. just how I feel anyway

You may not be the only one, but you are in the minority.

I used to not care, and think that as long as the team won, that was the bottom line.

Now, especially with the prevalence of social media and it being the digital age, it becomes fairly obvious who the classy organizations are and who the crappy organizations are. I'd rather my franchise be a place where the cream of the crop are clamoring to work for rather than being a cesspool where you can only get people desperate to land a job. This has trickled into free agency too. Our top TE target never visited. Manning never visited. Orton couldn't wait to get out of here. Carr never entertained staying. Bowe wants out, even though he denies it now. Flowers allegedly wants out. Haley revolted and wanted out. No worthwhile assistant coach even sniffed in our direction. Zorn wanted out of his contract. Fisher didn't really consider coaching here. Romeo and Philbin were the only legit coaching candidates we had. Hell, it took us three days to convince our top FA acquisition, Winston, to sign here. Wouldn't be surprised if a lot of that delay was due to hesitation based on what he had heard.

No, I'd prefer that the Chiefs organization be a place where people are happy and excited to work at, because that attitude permeates and reflects in the end product. Most of that comes hand in hand with winning, but you learn a lot about people when the going is rough...
