Glazer: Forget What You Read on Arrowhead Pride, Wright is Right & Pioli is Wrong

So I’m driving home this afternoon, listening to my friend Nick Wright on 610 Sports….

And he’s explaining how a website called Arrowhead Pride interviewed Chiefs GM Scott Pioli about coach Todd Haley. The site had quoted Pioli as saying, "We never discussed firing Todd Haley after a loss to the Colts – never happened." 

Pioli clearly was talking about Nick’s comments earlier this week when he’d said if the Chiefs had lost to the lowly Colts, Haley would have been gone. Inside information.

Well, the Chiefs won two games against horrible teams.  Both games were close and the Chiefs trailed in each. It was a bit odd that they won them, but clearly you don’t fire Haley after he finally wins two in a row. Most players on the team like him and they’re playing their tails off for Todd to save his job and their’s. The team’s still a bottom feeder, but it’s playing with a purpose.

However, the truth is they have very little talent outside D-Bowe and Tamba Hali.

Do I believe Nick? YES!

As most of you know, I said Todd would be gone because the Chiefs would be a doormat. I said that right after the preseason. Nick felt the same way and he knows Haley much better than I do. I’ve only spent time with Todd once at Woodside for maybe an hour working out. I liked him. He seemed like a good guy and I wish him well.

Still when three years go by and your team is bad, you get fired.

I also happen to know he quit Woodside recently and his wife had not been getting along with Pioli’s.

Whereas they used to. Another indication of a pending separation.

Nick’s telling the truth. Scott is not.

He has to lie because he can’t fire Haley if the team wins some games. The bye week was the perfect time to dump Todd, if the Chiefs were 1-4 or 0-5.

"We have decided to go in another direction. We all appreciate what Todd Haley has done but…."

You’ve heard it all before. Kinda like "we are playing to get better." God, I’m so sick of all that.

As Nick put it, "Someone has to be the scapegoat for this mess and it’s not gonna be Scott. And that leaves Todd Haley."

I agree, it makes sense and Nick is not a liar – Todd is gone. It’s just a matter of when. Unless the Chiefs really do compete and win at least 6-8 games. That’s highly unlikley but anything’s possible in the NFL.

So for now, we’ll have to wait for the "different direction" speech from Scott and Clark Hunt.

In truth, Pioli’s more to blame for all this mess than Haley, but young Hunt doesn’t have the backbone to fire Pioli.. Not now anyway, Remember how long his dad Lamar put up with Jack Steadman’s antics? And Carl Peterson’s.

Maybe after five or six years of losing – if that’s the case – Hunt will grow a pair.

This team is not really any better than when Carl left. A couple of name stars, kinda – Charles, Hali, D Johnson, Bowe and Eric Berry. Cassell is a bust – it’s now clear he’s just average and will never take this team to a Super Bowl, Never.

So, yeah Haley will be fired, likely at the end of the season. But if the Chiefs lose to Oakland and the Chargers, he may go sooner – 2-5 and he’s out. We’ll see.

Haley already knows this and accepts it.

Bottom line, Nick Wright had the guts to call the Chiefs out early on. He was pulling for them until he saw the truth in Game One. They are terrible. With the injuries he wanted to "Suck for Luck," and he was right. You need a great quarterback to win the big ones today, it’s as simple as that. And we don’t have that guy.

Bottom line; Nick told the truth and Pioli didn’t.

And nobody on this team in the front office, has invested themselves in this city.

Haley came the closest. He at least tried. If he’d stayed, I think he would have gotten there because he has it in him.

Scott, I’m afraid, is just another Carl in a different suit. Good call Nick.

    Not Even Close
    You’d think with an Edsel for a schnoz Nick could sniff out the REAL story.

    FACT is Haley, through his agent has already gone back channel to Clark Hunt demanding more input and control if he’s going to stay. Pioli has given him SHIT to work with and tries to undermine him. The players even know this and it’s got them pissed off. They’ve got Haley’s back and if he gets whacked the shit that’s going to get said and tweeted will be very, very embarassing for Clark Hunt and Scott Pioli. It’ll make Mutiny On The Bounty look like an Up With People Concert.

    Pioli is the problem and the BIGGER problem is no other BIG NAME coach is gonna come here with Pioli as GM.

    If Haley gets whacked tomorrow he’s gonna get hired by another team, in some capacity, maybe even THIS SEASON. If Pioli gets whacked tomorrow he’s out of football for a long time. He’s another useless chowdahhead riding Bill Belechik’s HOODIE.

    I’m sure it feels good having Humptys’ nose up your ass but as much as Kevin Keitzman is into speculation, Nick is into dreckulation. Maybe that’s his new NICKNAME….DRECKULA,cause he’s full of SHIT. That’s why he’s currently known as Nick “The Shituation” Wright. He’s getting his ass stomped in the ratings. He’s got ZERO CREDIBILITY.

    C’mon Craig remember what Col. Nathan Jessup said, “YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH”

  2. Cliffy says:

    I said this quite awhile ago in a slightly different way, smartman. Cassel’s not great but its not his fault Pioli can’t draft.

  3. kcredsox says:

    Cash Money
    Whose fault is it that no money is being spent on this team. So, if your going to blame Pioli, you also have to blame the Clarks. I think Nick is trying to stir shit up to get his ratings back, what did he have to lose by this statement? He knew the Chiefs would have to deny it, but since the time already passed, there is no way to prove its correct.

  4. harley says:

    how he let this team go without signing any significant free agents or additional players is beyond me.
    This italian dumbshit should have said to clark that we need to upgrade at positions on offense and defense
    and told clark to spend the money.
    but remember…as in the lawsuit amongst the hunts…clark would rather spend money on his gardeners and
    landscaping than on anything else.
    Pioli should have said to clark that we need to spend at least 15 million on free agents to upgrade the team
    just like the perrenial contenders like new england and philly. Did those teams stand still…no…did any team including
    packers stand still…no….the cheifs did because clark likes money.
    The problem is pioli…the injuries….the preseason program that haley instituted in a weird yearvwith the lockout…
    thats it….and the fact that clark won’t spend the money to be a contender.
    No need to look elsewhere or decide who to fire….theowner is one cheap owner….and kc has seen this before…
    like father…like son.

  5. harley says:

    wrights nose isn’t an edsel…
    it’s a mack truck! Nice comment smartman…you should take glazes place here.

  6. bschloz says:

    Heard a rumor Chiefs sold naming rights to Arrowhead. Could GM have purchased so we can finally call it Camarohead?

  7. TIAD says:

    If Glazer Bought the Naming Rights….
    If Glazer bought the naming rights, it’ll be called: Gimmehead.

  8. Henry The Sports Czar says:

    Glazer Is Too Fast To Trust Nick
    I believe they are friends on the air, but I’m not sure you can trust everything Nick Wright says. No more than Kevin or Soren. Who really knows. Firing Haley seems a matter of time, sure, but when and where, who knows. I do believe Todd is a goner. I believe he and Scott are on the outs, not a good thing.

  9. Orphan of the Road says:

    Throwing shit against the wall to see what sticks
    That’s Nick Wright’s style. What first-year journalism student at Metro CC couldn’t write that story? Hell Glazer wrote it somewhere down below, probably a week or so ago.

    Reality sits in on the Fresh Prince of 610 as the Royals can’t hand off the baton. Just another talker who can’t take down the king who begs to be dethroned.

    Fact is this ship will sail until it reaches the port of End of Season with coach, gm and owner along for the ride.

    What coach worth his salt would play for Pioli seeing how easily he steered the bus over his coach?

    If that bitch Karma has her way, Andy Reid will bring his clown act to this town.

  10. Cowboy says:

    Andy Reid Makes Sense
    Good coach, question is, will he want to come to KC?

  11. Orphan of the Road says:

    Andy Reid is Marty Schottenheimer
    IF Marty had a Super Bowl in which he blew it.

    Niche Wright, now there’s a name which fits.

  12. Dog says:

    Not Too Sure About Nick
    Listened today, he sure is an uppyty guy. He thinks his poop don’t stink. Much of what he says I agree with, but he sure treats his staff like dumb shits.

  13. Travis Tripper says:

    Haley Ain’t Going Nowhere
    Todd is our man. Great job with these under performing losers. He is a good coach. Lets keep him.

  14. Mister Magoo Goo says:

    Craig Gets This From Frank Caliendo
    I think these are Franks picks. Not yours.

  15. Tiger Tail says:

    Tigers Come Back
    MU will cover without the 6 points. We are much better than our 2-3 record. Bet the house on this one.
