Pioli has consistently talked about certain kinds of guys, the 'right 53' he calls them because those kinds of guys not only win, but inspire us with their actions and character on and off the field. He calls those kinds of guys 'the right 53' because of the values they represent.
My question is this: Is Pioli himself a 'right 53' sort of fellow?
You could infer he is because of the goal he's setting for the players on the teams roster, but if we take a harder look at all the things we know about the management style of the organization since he took over we might find a few cracks in the ole image there.
The team certainly made a major change of direction with regard to employee relations and media relations immediately upon Pioli's arrival. Some would say many of these changes were unnecessary, unforgiving and brutal to the morale of the staff at One Arrowhead Drive. We certainly have evidence of this from published interviews and media coverage of legal actions.
Many of these new policies have been referred to as paranoid and draconian. I don't know if they are or not. I don't work there. But there's enough smoke here to suspect a fire somewhere. Is the fire in this case Pioli's own paranoid tendencies? or simply the refuge of a wizard working the controls behind the curtain?
What do you think? Is Pioli a right 53 guy, and if he is or isn't... is he the right guy for the job he's in now?
