Put the kids in the other room and try not to throw anything at the TV.
610 Sports Jay Binkley said it first,;”Scott Pioli may NOT BE GOING ANYWHERE. There’s now evidence he is STAYING WITH THE CHIEFS.”
Because the Chiefs GM and main man has been traveling and talking to possible future players about signing with HIS team for next year. In other words he is operating as if he’s calling the shots on next season’s draft picks.
We all know how great Pioli is at that.
This same report was on 810 Sports with Soren Petro. He too is saying the new word is that Scott may stay.
The Marty-Ball / general manager talk with Clark Hunt was real, according to my inside sources.
But Marty clearly is happy at 70 with his $30 million in the bank and golf game.
Hearne pointed out the scandal Marty survived with his wife and family back in 1998. The stepping out on her story. More importantly, what Marty is saying is, ” I will consult,” but that’s it.
Again these are strong rumors but not fact…not yet.
What may have caused all this talk could be that Pioli had already signed his extension.
Clark was likely offering that back in the summer when the future appeared far brighter.
But why? The guy had a 4-12 opening year. Okay, it was all new and Scott needed time to fix things. Then the next season, bang, 10-6 and the division title and playoffs. Forget that at the end of the season they were among the top five worst teams in the NFL.
That kinda carried over for last year’s, 7-9 season.
Now this mess.
The summer showed promise, new players, new draft, talk of a division title and maybe a playoff win. Clark, who clearly does not want much to do with daily operations at Arrowhead, wants his Carl Peterson.
Clark wants THE MONEY TRAIN to continue and Scott runs a tight ship.
It’s clean, neat, well run and people stand at attention. Just like Carl’s Arrowhead had been.
Just one problem.
The team became the joke of pro sports and were exposed on national TV as one of the all-time worst organizations and worst teams. A punchline. The fans are going to wear black this Sunday at the stadium. Again banners will fly asking for Scott to be fired.
But if Pioli signed something…OH BOY!
A ton of dough would have to be paid out to get rid of him. Who said Pioli wasn’t smart?
Clark thought things were looking good when they were anything but and didn’t want to lose his guy.
The team will likely win one more game, at best two, and then pick among the top three or four draft slots. We need a top notch leader or two NOW. Fixing this major mess will be way uphill.
Hey, I have an idea. Let’s get more guys from Miami and Cleveland…two winning programs. Of course we did go with the RIGHT 53 and the Patriot Way.
Stay tuned this will be a blast. We don’t have a team to watch so let’s watch this circus.
Bill Cowher make that 15 million a year buddy.
