Changes In KC!

Scott Pioli (left)-Photo from nytimes.comFans of the Kansas City Chiefs got their wish this holiday season.  Carl Peterson is gone finally!  That’s great news for the Chiefs and their fans.  But beware there will be more changes in KC coming soon.  If the Chiefs sign the New England Patriots Scott Pioli as their new GM, changes will come.  And the entire rebuilding process will begin.  Pioli wants total control of the team, from the coach to drafting players.

Why’s a team going to hand it all over to him?  If you want to win, and bring greatness back to your team your team you’ll do it.  Pioli has been part of the cast that helped the Patriots become what they are today.  A great team, making the right moves.  From their head coach Bill Belichick who’s won 3 Super Bowl titles in his stay.  To getting the players the team has needed.  Players either from the draft or via free agency.  But most importantly players that fit the team and it’s mold.

Pioli, would be a great fit for KC and it’s team.  But it comes with a price.  The price is most likely a complete rebuilding process.  It’s great for fans of KC, but not so great for certain players and one coach in particular.  Herm Edwards and his 15-34 record over his three year stay could be OUT!  I’m sorry but he needs to go, and go now.  It’s time to start fresh and that means getting a coach that can win, and has a proven track record of winning.  Who is it, that’s not for me to decide, but bringing in the NEP’s offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels might not be a bad move.

As for others that might be affected in the process, tight end Tony Gonzalez who’s entering his 13th season in the NFL, deserves to be traded.  Why trade him, simply he’s earned it.  Don’t punish him with having to endure the rebuilding process.  Reward him for his years of play, his consistency on the field, and let the man have a shot at a ring.  Trade him, get a nice high draft pick, maybe even two picks for him, and say “Thanks” and “Good-Luck” for his service.  If anyone in the league deserves a title, it’s Gonzalez.  Reward him and give him the opportunity to achieve what everyone who plays in the NFL wants.  A Super Bowl title!

    As a Chiefs fan I couldnt agree with you more.  I dont want to see Tony leave, but he deserves a ring and in the timeframe he has left it would be a stretch (to say the least) to see us get one.

    Either way, thanks for posting a classy article, unlike blogs for other teams.

    Robert;

    Thanks for checking this out.  If anyone in the league deserves a title, I’d say it’s Gonzalez.  Hands down, I’ve been a fan of the Chiefs since Montana and Allen were there.  And have followed them ever since. 

    And with TG being the best TE in the game for years, I’d love to see him get that ring. Maybe he’d like to come to NE, lol.  We’ll welcome him with open arms.

    Mark,

    I hope the Chiefs get Pioli and he restores some wins in KC.  As a Patriots fan do you see this as a good move for the Chiefs?  Also if you think about it, the Chiefs have not won a playoff game since Montana / Allen days.  Our last Super Bowl win was in 1966, which I obviously dont remember.  I hope I can see them hoist up another one.

    And no matter where Tony lands, I wish the best.  Regardless I think he will always be looked at as a Chief.

    Robert;

    Getting Pioli is a GREAT move for the Chiefs.  Bring in Spagnuolo from the Giants and you have the winning combo KC has needed for years.

    Here’s a look into the future:
    1 . KC trades for Cassel
    2. LJ and or TG will be Patriots (part of Cassel pkg)
    3. KC wins 8 games in 2009 season
    4. KC makes the play-offs by 2010

    Should be fun to see what happens down the road for NE and KC now.
