If Hunt retains Pioli, then he blatantly condemns the Chiefs to continue the same losing culture that's been going on since his dad, Lamar passed away.
The AFC Championship trophy is named the Lamar Hunt trophy. The Chiefs have been the worst team in the AFC, record wise, since 2007. Somebody should point this out to Clark & maybe it'll wrench his gut enough that he will take action and get rid of Pioli.
However Romeo Crennel looks like a deer in headlights out there he plays to not lose and is uber conservative in terms of making decisions to win the game we aren't even remotely competitive. IMO crennel has to be first.
And Brian Daboll too....
Id be ok with getting a veteran backup instead of drafting though. Someone like Hasselbeck (not sure if he will be available) who can come in and be competent if the QB gets a concussion and goes down for 2-3 weeks.
If we get a QB in FA, then what I would like to see is 1) QB, and then in the 2nd and 3rd: ILB, WR, or CB. I would love to get a legit LB next to DJ.
I would rather get a veteran backup to our rookie qb for a few reasons. One being someone to help him and tutor him that has ayes in bigger games before, and secondly to save another pick for other needs as we have so many. Im not sure what qbs are avail in the 2014 draft buy I wouldn't be opposed to waiting and drafting a qb next year instead if there is a better crop of them avail then. But def want a different qb in here next year. Cassel and Quinn aren't the answer. And who knows if Schaub will be able to be resigned in Houston, we have the cap space to make a run at him.
Getting back to the QB, there's also a strong chance of the QB getting hurt if the pass-blocking doesn't improve in 2013. This is one reason why I suggested earlier to draft 2 QB's. Here are the others:
1) If the Chiefs do draft a QB with their 1st pick, they simply cannot put all their eggs in this guy's basket given their history when it comes drafting QB's since the NFL and AFL realigned in 1970. Every QB they have drafted since then has been a colossal bust.
2) Never before have the Chiefs taken 2 QB's in the same draft since 1970 that I am aware of. If they are ever going to do that, now is the time. Nobody could blame them at this stage if they drafted QB's with their top 2 picks, especially under the current CBA. It would create good competition at the position and may the best man win.
