Scott Pioli out as KCs GM 


Pioli's deparature comes with the Chiefs on the verge of hiring Andy Reid as their new coach, according to league sources.

"After several productive conversations, we made the difficult decision to part ways with Scott Pioli and allow him to pursue other opportunities," Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. "Scott has been an invaluable member of the Chiefs family since joining us in 2009, and we sincerely appreciate his tremendous contributions over the last four years.

"I know that this was a difficult decision for Scott as well. He has a great deal of appreciation for the history of this franchise, for our players, coaches and employees, and especially our great fans."

Pioli, 47, joined the Chiefs in 2009 after nine seasons with the Patriots, where he helped to build New England's dynasty. But he failed to turn around the Chiefs, who were 23-39 in his four seasons, including a woeful 2-14 in 2012 under Rome Crennel, who was hired to replace Todd Haley during the 2011 season. Crennel was fired after this season

The time has come..... Here's to the 2014 Season.

I'm not surprised at all, - in fact I can remember some posts here saying Pioli was the true (talent & draft) brains in the FO - and the Pats were pretty well cooked with his leaving for KC. - Like sooo many that leave for "greener pastures", ... shows over, put out the lights.

What's also interesting is that the Pats drafts got better after he left. Especially the last couple years.

Yep. Pioli is so overrated. Cassel was probably his biggest mistake, but it seems he didn't really help the team in any area.

If Romeo is available and wants to come back the Pats really should consider him.  Patricia is not the solution in NE.  Crennel would fix a lot of things.  Let him just focus on Defense.

Patricia still looks clueless on many occasions out there. At time the way Belichick calls the defense over and goes over things you woul think he was the DC. Rob Ryan would be a better addition as well as Crennell.

 

Who am I kidding I still want Norm Turner to replace McD.

Chance favors the Prepared Mind.

Rob Ryan would be awesome. Not just because he's good at what he does, but he's also an ex-Pat and it would drive Rex nuts. Romeo would be more of a "father figure" for a young D, but Rob Ryan would whip them into a real frenzy.

When McD is "on" he's incredible. When his game-plans work the Pats can shred any team. His problem is when "Plan A" runs into trouble, and he's way too aggressive at the end of games when they're holding onto a slim lead.

I seem to remember BB and Crennel having a pretty good relationship.  One of my more memorable moments of his time here was when BB, Romeo and Weis group hugged at the end of what I believe was their last SB together. I'd love to have him back.

I live in OKC and they are a Cowboy market. They are pushing for the return of Turner and Wanstdt.
