I still think if they would get rid of cassel everything else would fall into place.
We deserve better. One of the most loyal fan bases in all of sports and we are continually given a halfass product.
I remember reading this article back in 2008 after King Carl had resigned (gotten fired) and it made a lot of sense to me then. Although it wouldn't have been the most glamorous way to go about building the team it may have been the most effective.
I just spent the last hour searching for this damned article. I t was written by a longtime Colts fan who witnessed firsthand how a team can be built to produce in only a couple short years and remain competitive for a few more.

Prepare to feel sick when reading it as you begin to wonder what could have been.
i have to agree w/this article, i believe that pioli should get canned at the end of this season if we don't see a BIG improvement.
Just wait till mmo sees this. Maybe he wrote it..nah it's too well written.
I think Pioli is an intelligent guy and there is something going on that none of us know about related to the salary cap. Like the article said, Pioli never just accepts responsibility for his actions. You can't have any person in power, (even the towel boy) not accept responsibility for a mistake and attempt to fix it. Business 101?
If the Chiefs do have a bad year, I'll be the one handing out the pitchforks to get Pioli. (I've already handed them out for Cassel each offseason) I think this is the year he needs to be held accountable for his mistakes...Did he really say that "I didn't do my homework" when talking about hiring Haley?!?!
With that said, I still think that this is a talented team and maybe there's a quick fix somewhere...they can't suck this bad....can they?
