TG is going to be interviewed on sportscenter in the upcoming hour. If you are home you might want to watch. It should be interesting.

I wonder what he will have to say, after all he said he didnt want to come back if Herm didnt.

Huard is on ESPNews right now.

The normal stuff you think "herm was a great guy, a great leader, he gave me an opportunity to play yadda yadda" "but we all know wins is what counts yadda yadda"

she asked him why they lost so much, and basically he said 'LJ got hurt, and we lost jared allen'

she asked about shanahan and "i have great respect for him blah blah blah"

He said that he understand that if you dont win, you have to go. He doesnt blame Herm for everything in regards to the failures. He has no problems with Shannahan as coach, he respects him.
Sorry about any bad typos, im trying to put this out as fast as possible.
On retiring/trading: "a guy like pioli is great, you have got to believe he is going to take us in the right direction, it is just a matter of how long it will take" "If we can get it done in the next two years, then I would want to stay" "as of right now I definitely want to stay" "As of right now Im a Chief and Im not going anywhere" He said If mike shannahan can get us to the promised land then i would definitely love to play for him

He once again said though that the worst thing he can hear is the "R" word (rebuilding). He thinks we have a great young team and were very close in many games. He thinks Herm was a good coach because he understood how to treat/respect players to make them want to come in after hours to practice more.

Here are some excepts that I got from the ESPN interview:

Regarding the Chiefs targeting Shanahan:
His resume speaks for itself. I would have no problem with that. He is a proven winner. I think that would be great for the Chiefs.

How will this affect your future with the Chiefs?
A guy like Pioli is great. The only concern I have is how long it will take? The word I hate most is rebuilding. I don't have much time left. I have a 2 year window. Right now, I definitely want to stay a Chief.

Overall, he seemed content with staying a Chief.

He also said he had heard good things about Shanahan from his former players and they all had good things to say about him. He feels Shanny would be a good addition to the Chiefs

Tony sounded like he's loyal to the Chiefs as long as he feels that we make the moves to win right away.

I have faith that Pioli will sign superstars to keep a superstar.

ya know this could work out quite well, who knows the Bronks better than Shanny, with another good draft and some nice FA's and some real coaching we might learn to say words like AFC WEST CHAMPS and PLAYOFFS:lol:

Me too. I think Pioli realizes that the draft is a very important piece of the puzzle, BUT it's not the only piece. Herm and Carl apparently forgot that last year and they and the Chiefs paid the ultimate price.

I couldn't see Tony leaving after the Chiefs signed Pioli. Who doesn't want to be a part of a dynasty.
