I posted this comment on another post, but I wanted to expand on it a little.
For the people on here bashing Scott Pioli, I am just curious as to your qualifications. I know what Pioli's are, and the dude has a pretty serious resume.
Pioli was the #1 most sought after executive in the NFL for the last decade. He turned down interviews for GM jobs before he agreed to come to KC. Nobody has the resume this guy has — three Superbowl wins, four Superbowl appearances, the first ever 16-0 regular season team. I don’t think people in KC really realize how amazing a coup it was for Clark Hunt to land Pioli, that Pioli was willing to come to a small market city like KC when he could have written a ticket anywhere he wanted to go.
So this is my question, and I am saying this in all seriousness: If you guys think you know better than Pioli, that you know better how to build an NFL team than the guy who built the dominant team of the past decade, why aren’t you working in the NFL? If you could do a better job than a guy with 3 fucking Superbowl rings, why aren’t you working in the NFL in some capacity? Because you should be if you could do a better job.
And let's watch the Bears and see how this flailing around and overpaying guys in FA works out for them.
