Unfortunately the trepidation I had about Crennel has come to pass. We are Cleveland II. But I think we can win and win a lot with the players Pioli has assembled-this is about the coaching and system. As far as replacement coaches, I have no idea. The folks I would consider wouldn't come back to coaching. I know there's supposed to be a lot of assistants and coordinators that are good, but I don't know. I think we give Crennel a chance to right the ship. But our defense is truly awful.
Romeo got the job becasue he beat Greenbay. Other than Jeff Fisher who realistically was out there that Pioli could hire without upsetting the many fans who wanted Romeo. I didn't like the hire, but really didn't have one guy out there that I thought was a clear cut better choice.
Pioli is micromanaging the team to death, if you ask me. Haley was without an OC after we unceremoniously trashed Chan Gailey, and now Romeo has no DC since getting promoted.
There's just too much going on in the game these days to ask one man to cover two spots like that. It's not like we can't afford to get someone, either.
I'm starting to get the sinking feeling this team is being run like the Royals: as a business, not a ball club. Oh sure, they'll bring in one or two half-assed FAs for us all to get excited about, then hoard the rest of the money, leaving us perennially way under cap room. The optimists will say, "they're just waiting to spend it in (x year)" but they won't. And if you ever get fed up with it and stop buying tickets or refuse to approve a tax levy to build their new roof, they'll pack up and move.
I hope I'm wrong.
In cash spending Pioli says we are +$20 million over the cap. Now what the difference between cash and the actual cap I have no idea but here's the link.

That guys eyes brown?
He's so full of sh*t they should be.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
I believe the salary cap only considers players salaries. The other number refers to what we have to pay out in bonuses, whether it is signing bonuses (which sometimes are split over multiple years), bonuses for showing up to OTAs, minicamp, stat bonuses for various players in different positions, etc. I think (i may be wrong on this) that the end of year bonuses from last year are included in this year's cap.

When should a Chiefs fan be justified in complaining? And when is your threshold crossed, when the team needs recognized as hOrribly failing? Seriously interested in your thoughts.

That is two whole games into the season. Two whole games.
And the insane turnaround against this team implies that the season is long since over. It is not. It just started.
How about a little bit of true realism? I had this team going 10-6, after an 0-3 start to the season. So this team is right on track for the division title, the way I saw it prior to the start of the season.
I am certainly not the one jumping off the bridge with overreaction here.
I have my worries. But I am not the kind of guy who reacts to each game as if that is the absolute.best that could ever be expected, and that it is time to fire everybody and go back to drafting in the top five just because we lost two.games.
