Michael Lombardi said something very interesting on the radio...

They were talking about what went wrong with Scott Pioli in Kansas City and whether the new reporting structure is an improvement.

Lombardi said some really interesting and somewhat profound things during the discussion.

First, he said building cohesion in the staff is of primary importance. He said if the entire staff agrees on how to build the team philosophically, "final say" is pretty irrelevant. He said that sure, there might be arguments about SPECIFIC players but there would never be disagreements about what PROFILE of player the team is looking for.

He said part of the problem with Pioli was that he was trying to recreate the success of the Patriots while coming in with the wrong frame of mind. He said when they all left Cleveland in 1995, they were thoroughly focused on what went WRONG. Belichek went to the Patriots still focused on what went WRONG. Pioli came to KC directly off his success in New England, completely focused on what went RIGHT. It creates a kind of tunnel vision, where the cracks are very hard to see (or are even ignored) and thus the foundation isn't solid.

Andy Reid seems to be setup for more success because he left Philly focused on what went wrong. It gives him an advantage over a guy like Bill Cowher, who left Pittsburgh focused totally on what went right.
