Right. But so far, there's no indication that Reid is demanding personnel control.

Either way, I've heard from a good source that they're targeting Arians as their #1 guy.

I'm just saying, Hunt won't save himself from fan rage by waiting a few months to let Pioli settle in, and he knows that. If Hunt knew Pioli was coming back, in any role, he would've just said so.

Well Reid had final say in Philly all those years. Why would he let that go now? He has an ego just like any other big NFL coach who's had success.

The Vick decision was apparently his. No one knows for sure, but that is what was agreed upon publicly by the organization. He had to sell Jeff Lurie on it, but Lurie was fine with giving him a chance.

The line was good last year. This year it sucked because they lost Jason Peters who was a top 3 lineman last year, lost Todd Herremans this year, lost Jason Kelce this year. A ton of injuries. Also Danny Watkins our former first round pick sucks. That is on Reid, he gives the final say in personnel and it was a bad pick.

So it is a mix. Lacking talent, injuries.

And see how well it worked out? Not only for him but his mentor Mike Holmgren? Or even Shanahan?

It's extremely rare when a man can be both head coach and the final decision maker on personnel and be successful, year in and year out.

I seriously doubt Arizona or KC or any other franchise is going to hand over absolute power to Andy Reid, especially given the way his tenure in Philly just ended.

I'm looking at the list of Super Bowl winning coaches since 1981, and 14 of the 20 won the Super Bowl with their first NFL team as a head coach. Only 6 were on their second stints (Shanarat, Vermeil, Gruden, Belichick, Dungy, and Coughlin) and outside of Gruden, who probably could have won the SB had he stayed in Oakland that one year, the other guys all inherited, drafted, or lucked into HOF QB's (assuming Eli Manning ends up in the HOF and you believe that Kurt Warner is a HOF player).

Is Reid going to be in that group of 6, and who is going to be his potential HOF QB? Or should we be looking at the HC position like we do the QB position, and try to get one who starts it here rather than tries to import what he did elsewhere here?

I know it didn't work out with Haley, but that was Pioli making the hire on his own. I think we need to take another swing at it, while making sure whoever we hire has true leadership and delegation skills, is not a control freak like Haley was, and is a sharp football mind. I would pass on Reid...
Reid is one of a few that meets what Clark stated he wanted. I don't think the next assistant coach is going to meet those wants.

Ha...good luck with that one, Bill's kid.

If Horton gets passed over as HC, someone will hire him to be the top dog. Hell, Buffalo would be a good fit, presuming they don't go hard after Lovie. SD might be looking for a different type of coach as well; Horton might be a nice fit there to instill a more aggressive attitude after such a laid back rube in Norv.

Nah, I can't see any way Bidwell is able to keep Horton, if for no other reason than Horton is going to want to interview elsewhere and Reid is going to want to get his staff in place and is not going to want to wait for the owner's hand-picked DC to make up his mind.

The 2013 Chiefs are the 2008 Chiefs before the draft. What happens this April will have a huge impact over the next four years. They're teetering on the brink of being irrelevant for four more years if they **** up.
BAM! - EXACTLY This.
Back to the future ....just might be without the Flux Capacitor..

I don't think Clark has confidence in his ability to identify a relative no-name, up-and-comer. Pioli was the biggest GM name on the market, and he hired him and gave him full control. Now he's talking about hiring the biggest HC name on the market and giving him full control.

That doesn't look like a risk-taker.

The situation we are in right now, trying to sell the fanbase a assistant coach is pretty damn hard to do. Not only that we aren't in a situation where we can hand the reigns over to someone that is learning on the job.

This new HC role will be someone of power. They will make decisions just as much as the GM. They will report directly to Clark, not the GM. Basically we will be hiring a GM that works hand and hand to what the HC wants. We need someone with experience to fix this mess! That is why we are after Andy Reid. Is he perfect? Hell no, but he has proven to be a winner and fits exactly the role that Clark Hunts wants in his next head coach. Unless he can convince Bill Cowher to come, your looking only at a handful of other guys capable of fitting the role described... guys like Holmgren, Gruden, Billick, etc.

Once again, because you are a Chiefs fan, you can sit there and call out all of our holes, but i dont believe for a second that a 4-12 football team is in much better shape than a 2-16 team.

No, the Cardinals aren't much closer to competing. You of all people know that the QB makes the biggest difference, and we are in a better spot to land the top prospect.

You can't sit there and shrug off the Cardinal's needs and say they are an easy fix while saying our needs are difficult to fix, when in fact, they are just as easy to fill.
