Pioli brought the Cleveland Browns way to KC; Not the New England way!!!!!!!


We have become the Cleveland Browns of the NFL, no surprise when you end up with the coaching staff of Romeo Crenel (Head Coach Cleveland , also ran the Defense) and Brian Dabol (Offensive Coordinator Cleveland).

We have a quarterback that was drafted in the late 1st round from this same coaching staff in Cleveland in Brady Quinn and a running back acquired with these same two coaches. Pioli himself also came from Cleveland and look at us KC we are at the bottom of the NFL celler (which coincidentally was again was the moniker of the Cleveland Browns).

A brief breakdown of our situation and personnel include Pioli, In 1992, Pioli was hired as a pro personnel assistant by Bill Belichick, then the head coach of the Cleveland Browns. In Cleveland, Pioli was responsible for the evaluation of both college prospects and veteran free agents, as well as negotiating various player contracts.[1] When the Browns moved to Baltimore after the 1995 season, Pioli stayed with the team and was promoted to Pro Personnel Coordinator for the Ravens' 1996 season. When Belichick accepted the Patriots' head coaching position in 2000, Pioli accepted the GM job and the two eventually became the first personnel director/head coach tandem in league annals to win three Super Bowls during a four-year span (2001–2004).[1] He and Belichick split the duties usually held by a general manager on most other NFL teams, though Belichick had the final say.

Romeo Crennel; Before beginning the 2003 playoffs with the Patriots, Crennel interviewed for head coaching positions with six teams in under 36 hours. He was not offered any jobs, however, and was passed up by the New York Giants, Buffalo Bills, Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears, and Atlanta Falcons. Crennel went 6-10 and 4-12 in his first two seasons with the Browns, finishing last or tied for last in the AFC North and missing the playoffs each year. The Browns finished the 2007 season with a 10-6 record, just falling short of making the playoffs. Crennel's success in the 2007 season earned him a two-year contract extension in January 2008.[3] On December 29, 2008, following a disappointing 4-12 season, Crennel was fired by the Browns. But to be fair RAC does have (5) five SB Rings 2 with the New York Giants and 3 with the New England Patriots as a Defensive Coordinator, but time has been no friend to RAC and the game has passed him by.

Brian Dabol; Daboll began his NFL coaching career with the New England Patriots as a defensive coaching assistant in 2000 before being promoted to wide receivers coach for the Patriots in 2002. After the 2006 season, he left the Patriots to serve as the Jets' quarterbacks coach. In 2009, Daboll joined Eric Mangini's staff in Cleveland as offensive coordinator. Under Daboll the Browns had the NFL's 32nd ranked offense in 2009 [2] and the 29th ranked offense in 2010 [3]. Daboll was named Offensive Coordinator of the Miami Dolphins under Tony Sparano in 2011, with his Dolphins improving from 30th in the league to 20th in overall offense[4]. On February 6, 2012 the Kansas City Chiefs announced the hiring of Daboll as offensive coordinator, replacing the retired Bill Muir. Daboll had previously worked with Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel, general manager Scott Pioli and quarterback Matt Cassel in the New England Patriots organization.

Every teams Higher ups do bring in player personnel from previous regimes and it is understandable but the mistakes taken by most, Pioli included, is that they think they are the second coming of the previous teams starters. There are reasons they have not started and there are different coaches coaching and this new team they are with is not the old team. players like; Matt Cassel in my opinion not a bad bring over from New England but Pioli should have addressed the QB situation in the draft 1st year and beyond till he did find a franchise qb even if not there still would have been in better shape till find one. Point in being the Kansas City Chiefs or now the Kansas City Browns or Cleveland Chiefs way should not be in this situation. When you put together a team led by castoffs proven to be mediocre or below average together you deserve to be at the bottom. You do not deserve to be at the helm of a NFL team making decisions for personnel with the likes of your current history. KC now has a talented (ON PAPER) roster in players like DBOWE who was franchised and does not want to be here so now you either have to trade him or let him walk for nothing at the end of the year to better pastures or franchise him again for ridiculous money unnecessarily. Jamaal Charles, a talented running back (was leading the nfl) carrying the team by way to many carries in a game putting to much wear and tear on his body or only letting him carry it (5) five times in a game. This same player that counts for more than half of an offense is no where to be found. These are just a few things that Pioli and his Cleveland way has brought to our beloved Chiefs not to mention things like Albert our left tackle or Carr our lost CB or how we let TG get away. Not to mention how Respectable Players (Manning) and coaches (Fisher) didn't want to come to KC. Not to mention Cassel on how he has played his heart out and is a nice guy that hangs his receivers out to be hung and hurt (which by the way we have more injuries because of him) and on IR. Not even mentioning a draft class year after year without producing an above average starter or pro bowl materiel.

KC Fans we deserve Better than to be in the mold of the Cleveland way or NE way we need Personnel that will make us into the way we were meant to be like Lamar has the KC WAY teams wanted to be like us not us like them. Lamar brought the Chiefs to KC and started the AFL to be great not the bottom in the celler. Thank You for listening to the above rant.
