Fans 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!
