    Default 2 reasons Pioli gets an A+ these past 6 months

    1. Making the HC change before the end of last season and announcing RAC as new HC shortly after the end of the season.
    2. Not screwing around with Winston and getting him signed.

    The draft remains to be seen but these 2 moves alone will make us a competitive team next year and beyond. Great job.
    SHUT IT

    3. Getting Routt on board before Carr had walked.
    4. Not panicking about the QB situation and signing a veteran backup in Quinn.
    5. Getting rid of Muir in addition to Haley & getting a real OC and a real O-Line coach.
    6. NOT doing it the NE way, but more reminiscent of the way Don Klosterman did it as far as orchestrating the draft and FA. Klosterman had a track record as a GM that few could match and it was great to see Pioli take a page out of his book this off-season.
    7. Best draft of any team in the AFC West -- it's not even close. In fact, this is the best draft that the Chiefs have had in years with only the 2008 draft being comparable.

    I give the Chiefs draft an A+ and I lost all respect for Kiper years ago. This was the same guy hyping up JaMarcus Russell to be a franchise QB back in 2007.

    We saw how that worked out, didn't we?

    People are too hung up on drafting sexy picks at the top of the draft. That's not what the Chiefs needed coming into this draft. They were long overdue to make a run on some BEEF with their top 3 picks and they did a nice job getting that this year & they did a nice job in rounds 4 through 7, as well. This draft gets an A+ from me, regardless of what Kiper says.

    The additions of Winston and Routt are especially nice because of their draft "bonus." Usually, when a good, productive player hits the open market at a UFA, the team that loses said player is compensated with a comparable draft pick... like the one we'll see coming to the Chiefs for the loss of Brandon Carr.

    However, since both Routt and Winston were released by their teams, the Chiefs won't lose that compensation by signing a UFA of equal value to Carr. So, by signing players who were released instead of players who are leaving, the Chiefs will be able to retain the Carr compensation... which is a VERY BIG deal because the expected compensatory pick for Carr is probably going to be a 3rd rounder.

    To be fair I don't think anyone thought he would be a bust.

    Uhm, quite a few people thought he'd be a bust. If you watched any of his games you saw he was lazy and used his athletic talent to get by. That's exactly what he tried to do in the NFL and we all saw how it turned out. Anyone that thought he was going to be good only looked at scores on Monday and hyped up his combine numbers.

    eSPN did an article, may have been sports illustrated. Simething about women and scouting. Anyhow it stated that at his pro day he came in chubby and that he made .less than 50% of one throw, thats required by all nfl qbs.

    Everyone was in love with his size and how big his hands were they ignored the things he wasnt doing well. Most scouts knew he wasnt gonna make it.
