The way I start to fix the Chiefs if I'm Clark Hunt

I am on record as believing in Scott Pioli. I think he has the ability to be a very good GM but he has lost this city. Fans want his head and Clark Hunt cannot simply ignore this and pretend everything is okay. If you are going to axe the GM then it most likely means a full rebuild is in affect. With that in mind I will examine the team's structure and rebuild how I believe a successful team could be built.

GM: Marc Ross, Director of College Scouting, New York Giants

I would announce the firing of Scott Pioli and begin conducting interviews for a replacement GM immediately. My top choice is immediately going to the NY Giants and interviewing Marc Ross. He has been their director of College Scouting since 2007 and is looking for his first GM job. He's had some very good drafts under his belt and he has a background in player scouting and drafting.

The negative to a Marc Ross hiring is his extensive history of scouting for 4-3 teams. With so much talent already on the roster for a 3-4 scheme, how would they translate to a 4-3?

Head Coach: Perry Fewell, DC, New York Giants

The only down side of making this move is a switch to a 4-3 defense. Ross is familiar with Fewell and knows the kind of football coach he is. He has been considered for several head coaching jobs but hasn't had his shot yet. I feel that the Chiefs could switch to a 4-3 with little troubles.

------------Roster Moves--------------

Franchise and trade Dwayne Bowe

Resign Brandon Albert, Ropati Pitoitua, Ryan Lilja, and Edgar Jones

Cut Matt Cassel, Andy Studebaker, and Tyson Jackson.

Sign Kenny Phillips, Ramses Barden, Quinten Jammer, Jason Campbell, Jared Cook, Chaz Schillens, Daryl Smith, Donald Driver, Dannell Ellerbe, and Justin Durant.

-----------NFL Draft--------------------

1. Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia

The leader of a young offense. Losing Bowe means he has lost his best target but adding a solid receiver in free agency like Greg Jennings is a solid way to counteract that.

2. Cordarrelle Patterson, WR, Tennessee

Receiver with great speed and playmaking ability. Could really help stretch the field for our other receiving threats.

2. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU

A freak athletic talent that has only played football for two season. He doesn't have the same explosive production as JPP when he was drafted but he is a special player. 6' 6" 270 lbs and runs a 4.7 40 time.

3. Khaseem Green, OLB, Rutgers

An athletic linebacker that would help the transition to a 4-3 defense. Green is very sound in run support and can drop into coverage with ease.

4. Sanders Cummings, CB, Georgia

A big, physical corner that can play outside and provide some quality competition and depth.

5. Bruce Taylor, ILB, Virginia Tech

Depth at 4-3 MLB. Has the size to help in run defense while showing a capability to cover in the open field.

6. DJ Swearinger, S, South Carolina

In a league that is passing more than ever, solid safety depth is always a plus.

7. Braden Wilson, FB, Kansas State

He has done a very good job lead blocking for K State the last two seasons.
