Carl Peterson: 'It's a sad situation' in Kansas City

The former Chiefs GM speaks.

The Kansas City Star will have a feature on Sunday that we're all probably gonna want to read. It's about the first four seasons of the Carl Peterson regime compared to Scott Pioli's tenure and the Star posted an except from it, which you should go read now.

There's one quote that's going to jump out at you, from King Carl: "I don't keep track of what's wrong (in Kansas City), but it's a sad situation."

Oh man.

Part of me really, really wants to see that story on Sunday. The other part of me is realizing that this is really gonna highlight our sad state of affairs.

Three things about the snippet:

1. Yes, the Chiefs QB situation was never great (outside of Montana) under Peterson but he inherited veteran QB Steve DeBerg in Kansas City. In Peterson's first year, he signed a veteran QB (Ron Jaworski), spent a second round pick on a QB (Mike Elkins) and traded for one (Steve Pelluer). Not saying those guys worked out for the Chiefs but that's kind of eye-opening to see all the moves they made at that position.

2. The Chiefs won 39 games in Peterson's first four seasons. Pioli has won 22. So even if the Chiefs won out the rest of the season (which won't happen), Pioli would still be nine wins behind Peterson.

3. The story says Peterson splits his time between KC and New York. Share your best King Carl sightings in the comments section below.
