Peter Kings take on Pioli...

Quote:
My Take on Pioli ...

Yes, it was inevitable that the Chiefs fired Scott Pioli, whose top three decisions in a four-year Chiefs run (hiring Todd Haley, trading for Matt Cassel, hiring Romeo Crennel) all turned out to be wrong. He trusted Cassel a long time, and by the time he knew he needed to get a quarterback, it was too late. He passed on some good prospects, as did many teams (Andy Dalton, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson); maybe he didn't think outside the box enough at the game's most important position.

And Pioli was too private for his own good in what has become an increasingly public job. When Haley last year implied that Pioli wiretapped his phones, an outrageous and baseless allegation, Pioli let a team statement stand for his response instead of coming out swinging. But the vitriol chasing him out the door was over the top. He's a good man who didn't win enough. The personal attacks I just don't get.

I know Pioli well, and many of you will say, "He's just sticking up for Pioli because he likes him." Well, I have known Pioli for a long time, and yes, I do like him. I like a lot of people I cover. I can see when a man's getting kicked too much, and this is one of those times. Final point for those who believe Pioli left the cupboard bare: Think there's a reason the hottest ex-head coach on the market, Andy Reid, didn't consider any other jobs after he was offered the Kansas City deal?

Andy Reid took the job because he has the top pick in the draft and will have tons of cap room as soon as he drops Cassel and Jackson. He took it because the Chiefs have an awesome running back who fits his scheme and was here before Pioli ever thought of stepping foot around here. Houston is the only pick Pioli can really take credit for for hitting an out of the park type of player. Berry is the only other player he drafted that has been better then average and he was a 5th pick in the draft. Who would have ****ed that pick up? **** Pioli.

If I want to use the smiley, then I can use the tags like every other smiley on this board.
And when can we change the banner pictures? I don't even want to see pioli's face here anymore....

Fool, Mark Donovan was no Pioli co-conspirator. Indeed, he was instrumental in bringing a known terrorist to justice.

Mark Donovan was an Allied spy deep behind enemy lines. When the Philadelphia Eagles liberated Kansas City, it was he who led the operation.

From the Arrowhead Anxiety piece:

Quote:
During his first year, Pioli noticed a candy wrapper in a back stairwell and waited to see how long it took to be picked up. About a week passed, and it remained in the stairwell. He placed the wrapper in an envelope, and during a meeting of department heads, Donovan, then the team’s chief operating officer, brandished the wrapper as evidence of the attention to detail that Chiefs employees had grown to ignore.

“A great coaching moment,” Donovan said.
He certainly did get ass-deep into the part he was playing, now didn't he?

I glossed over this gem apparently.

GMAFB. There is exactly one player that Pioli has brought in that I want to keep, and that's Justin Houston. Four years, one good player. Everyone else he's brought can eat sh*t. 99% of the talent on this team is at least 5 years in the making. Pioli had nothing to do with that.

I've heard from at least a couple people that Donovan was instrumental in getting Pioli fired.

Which makes that even more hilarious.

I noticed that too and didn't hear much about it when the article came out. How glorious is it that he was mocking the old 2-14s only to take their place on the throne?
