Playing Pioli Poker

I posted this on another site for fun and to show thar Except for Hunt,Pioli, and Haley, we don't have any idea what will happen until the season starts. Again, this is for funh. Hope you enjoy.

On a warm summers evenin on a train bound for nowhere(Chiefs),
I met up with the gambler(Pioli); we were both too tired to sleep(excited about the future).
So we took turns a starin out the window at the darkness(Trying to figure what to do next)
til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak(They hired me to do a job and I'll do it my way).

He said, son, Ive made a life out of readin peoples faces(picking out good players),
And knowin what their cards were by the way they held their eyes(The Players talents).
So if you dont mind my sayin, I can see youre out of aces(we are tired of the old Chiefs).
For a taste of your whiskey Ill give you some advice(Sit back and watch what happens).

So I handed him my bottle (our hopes)and he drank down my last swallow(Emptied the bottle to start over).
Then he bummed a cigarette (Our patience)and asked me for a light(our support).
And the night got deathly quiet(Media clamp), and his face lost all expression(Down to business).
Said, if youre gonna play the game, boy(players), ya gotta learn to play it right(our way, like it or not).

You got to know when to hold em(Players), know when to fold em(Release them),
Know when to walk away and know when to run(TO).
You never count your money(Wins) when youre sittin at the table(During the season).
Therell be time enough for countin when the dealins done(Season's end).

Now every gambler (team)knows that the secret to survivin(winning)
Is knowin what to throw away(things that don't work) and knowing what to keepThings that do).
cause evry hands (Game)a winner and evry hands(Game) a loser,
And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep(A Super Bowl Winner).

So when hed finished speakin, he turned back towards the window(Went to his office),
Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep(No, he went to work).
And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even(Decided the path he'd take).
But in his final words I found an ace(hope for a winner) that I could keep.

You got to know when to hold em(Pass), know when to fold em(Run),
Know when to walk away(Punt) and know when to run(Go for it all).
You never count your money (Sucess)when youre sittin at the table(Building the team).
Therell be time enough for countin (Cheering)when the dealins done(The SUPER BOWL IS WON!).
