    Default Profootballtalk.com on Pioli's extension, the truth...


    0 Not allowed!
    I rarely believe any thing sports media reports on a National or local level, as most report based upon hearsay, speculation, & lack of credible sources. Their "source close to the situation" is crapola most times.

    Profootballtalk.com I do however, consider to be the most reliable these days for accuracy & honesty in reporting. Below is a link to their opinion on the current rumors related to Pioli's extension.

    I would like to point out a comment within their article related to Pioli's extension. PFT know's who those people are & so do I. Those people who "dislike Pioli", since he came to KC, because he didn't kiss their butts like former GM Peterson. They have done their best to crucify Pioli among a fan base that typically buys any thing media says or reports as gospel. Even though much of whats been reported has been false based upon ONLY hearsay, gossip, unreliable, & non credible sources. Clark Hunt made it perfectly clear to the KC Star, which they ran a story misleading fans yet again, even after Clark made it clear.."we don't discuss our contracts with the public"...including media.

    Profootballtalk.com - "There’s also a chance that folks who don’t like Pioli are pushing embellished, exaggerated, and/or fabricated facts in order to foment further fan discontent regarding Hunt and Pioli, fanning the flames so that Hunt will feel like he has no choice but to move on. Either way, someone is dead wrong on this one."

    ^^^ TRUTH!!

    I know, right?

    I'm not really.

    I just know that we have the talent to be a top team. The problems I see seem to be a coaching issue. And I think it CAN be fixed, but not so sure it will be, and losing hope with each bad game.

    Maybe I have been watching too many feel good sports movies.
    No towel throwing in from me!

    Is Scott Pioli winning? No....
    Yep!

    And again Yep.

    But I too would really like to see us get our s*** together and start winning ball games.

    1-5, and as ugly as they have been is discouraging. BUt it is not over yet, and there is talent here that can beat the wholy horses*** out of a lot of teams.

    I am not throwing in the towel yet.
    I have not, yet either.

    HE'S A TERRIBLE FREAKING GM WHO REFUSES TO ADMIT MISTAKES!

    You want to keep your job here, Pioli? Get rid of Matt Cassel, dump your entire trash-filled DL, draft Geno Smith with the 1st picks, sign Bowe long-term, and try not to completely ignore obvious holes on the team. It's okay though, Scott, someone else will have to fix your mess.
    It was confirmed late last summer, that Bowe WAS offered a lucrative contract. He & his agent wouldn't sign it, which is why Pioli used the tag. It is no big secret that Bowe's heart is where his home is...Miami. It's his hometown, where his family & closest friends are. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the rumors circulating for the past 1 1/2 years are true...that Bowe wants traded to a team closer to his home. He spent the entire off season in Miami, as well, was in Miami during camp when he held out.

    As the saying goes, "you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink."

    Just like Carr. Pioli offered him a lucrative contract too. Carr stated that publicly many times. He said it wasn't about the money, it was about following his heart & making a childhood dream come true. He's been a diehard Cowboy fan since he was a kid, always dreamed of playing for his favorite team. He had an opportunity to make that dream a reality, so he did.

    How in the hell can fans expect Pioli to compete with a guys childhood dream becoming a reality when that dream is based in Dallas as a Cowboy?

    Then he should have had a better backup plan in place. I am sorry, but defending Pioli on his current record is kind of silly. Can he maybe turn it around and start making better decisions. One can hope, but his current record as Kansas City's GM is horrible. There is no denying it. Four years in and the team we are seeing on the field. Come on. I am a fan, but I am also realistic.

    As far as Carr, hmm. I think maybe the 50M had more to do with it than that childhood dream. I am not saying the Chiefs should have offered that or more, but if they had, he is a Chief, not a Cowboy.

    I hope that is the case, but wouldn't he be better served on the practice squad. I think he is not allowed to Practice on IR.
