He does. The guy came back and played 4 days after having his appendix removed. The also organized workouts during the lockout. There is no questioning the guy is tough and wants to be a leader.

The problem is his effectiveness on the field.

I might recommend not studying. I would advise that you refresh yourself on the things you already know. Trying to learn a bunch of new stuff before an interview will only cause you to come off as a complete tool, because you increase the likelihood that you'll get facts mixed up.

Go with what you know. You'll surprise yourself

Christie Chiefsfan I'm not a fan of this. There are proper ways to vent your frustrations about what you feel is wrong...emails, phone calls and letters to front office. I for one can't point out two people considering the fact that interceptions, fumbles, a weak oline allowing our QB almost constant pressure, non aggressive play calls and a non consistent defense have easily been seen. We are losing as a team and can only win as one, too. From management through players we need to find the issues. As fans, we do not have the credibility or backgrounds to know what the thinking is in management nor the ability to understand the full process of management/coaching/playing. I don't know, it's sad to me that other good teams are having poor seasons, too, but their fans are not bashing their players or posting photos mocking them. I even see people wishing Cassel to be hurt by the opposing teams :( My love for football goes way beyond a W or L (though wins are way better of course), it is memories, friendships and just an American pastime that we are all privileged to have. Yes, players need to step up but so does coaching and management...this has to be a team improvement and as fans we have to encourage just that...TEAM accountability. I love my Chiefs, but honestly right now..I'm more disappointed in some of our fans than I am the losses. :(

Christie Chiefsfan If I remember correctly, when our fans started the "Suck for Luck" campaign, Luck respectably stated he would never want to play for a team that would do something like that to their qb. Honestly, I gained total respect for him because of that! Our actions not only serve as a reflection of our fanbase but can affect what future players want to come into. I understand the frustrations, but frustrations do not need to turn this into a circus. We need to keep common sense and voice our opinions to front office in a respectable yet firm way. I just will respectfully disagree that this is the way to do it. Sportsmanship doesn't just fall on the players, it falls on us as fans, too... and that I will not budge on.

Darren Gray Sounds like christie works in the Chiefs front office. In my opinion, if the team sucks, we have the right to say whatever we want. Its not about "being respectful". I think pioli is disrespecting the fans by marching cassel out there every week.

Marty McDonald Writing letters accomplishes nothing in this era. Sending emails to first name.lastname@chiefs.nfl.com or (firstinitial)(lastname)@chiefs.nfl.com will get deleted. Once you send the "communication" internally, its lost. Its very easy to get lost (just ask Todd Haley). However, when you take the message and communicate outward, where the Chiefs can't control it, well, then guess what...you get heard.

Its no different than sports radio guys/gals talking down on the Chiefs but it reaches a point where the Chiefs call the station and say "hey, enough is enough, your access will be limited" It happens.

Would this movement have more credibility if WHB came up with the idea? Maybe. But you are talking about fans in KC, across the United States of America who spend money on a team that needs a major culture change.

If random strangers coming together to raise money to fly a banner that reads Fire Pioli - Bench Cassel is what it takes to send a wake up call then so be it.

Fans can stop walking through the gates to purchase beer/food on game day.

Fans can stop buying tailgate treats/supplies/gear from local retailers.

Fans can stop paying $25 to park on game day.

There are a lot of things that fans can do.

The "Front Office" is Scott Pioli and he won't listen to the fans. In fact, if anyone has a pipeline to Scott and Scott wants to take a progressive response to an unhappy fan base, he can contact us. Let's set up a "fan and GM" online chat. It will be as civil as the day is long. Maybe Scott can loosen up and talk to us a little more and educate us a little more. Maybe, just maybe, we'll then understand a little bit more.

2. Chiefs record under Scott Pioli against winning teams.

3. Chiefs record under Scott Pioli against playoff teams

4. Chiefs getting their butt kicked under Scott Pioli

5. Pioli has done a completely awful job of addressing the most important position, QB.

6. Pioli has done a completely awful job of hiring head coaches.

7. Pioli's draft record isn't horrible, but has some pretty bad warts.

Anything else that needs addressed?

You'll almost have to spell this point out to some people. That is the fact that we know Quinn isn't the answer and that we need to draft a 1st round QB with the potential to be elite. Otherwise, if Casshole does get benched and Quinn lays a turd, there'll be a lot of dumbasses saying "see, we knew Quinn wasn't any good. Great job chiefs planet. Blah blah blah."

TinyEvel 10-03-2012 09:25 AM

The two most glaring things are Pioli's insistence on keeping Cassel (and then building the rest of the team around his weaknesses -- better RBs more protection, tall circus-catch receivers) and putting Romeo at HC and then NOT even hiring a DC.

Two "let's keep our fingers crossed and hope this works" moves. Not "win at any cost" moves. And teams who win make changes to win. It just feels like a "do the least we can" mentality, and that's what's the most frustrating for me.

Good advice. Mr. pr_capone knows plenty and he'll do just fine, Mr. RockChalk. Still, there's nothing wrong with brushing up on a few factoids that can be fresh at hand.

Besides, I'm quite certain that he's already contemplated everything that might appear in his prep notes ... perhaps a solid stat or two can be useful, though ... for the purpose of underscoring a particular issue ... that sort of thing.

At any rate, I have full faith in Mr. pr_capone whose rise to fame will undoubtedly be unequaled in modern times ... with the possible exception of that Lady Gaga person ... but, thankfully, it will likely be unnecessary for Mr. pr_capone to sleep with 500 ugly people in order to get his point across.

Pioli won't be fired. But I would almost bet that this will get Cassel benched soon.

I know it's Pioli's fault for keeping Cassel as long as he has.... but he can make up for all of that by putting a Quality QB on the field, hiring a new coach that is worth a shit and getting us some playoff wins SOON.

Can the plane be made to drop little leaflets. You know, like we dropped over bagdad and vietnam. that $300 could buy several thousand leaflets to drop all over the parking lot.
