You can't ask for leadership from people who aren't leaders.
It simply isn't going to work.
If he did ask, and actually expected to get leadership from those guys, then he's a BlackBob level moron.
Do you even think of what it is you are saying when you post?
Do you not understand, at least somewhere in that useless lump of coal that resides inside your head that the implications of what you just said are exactly an indictment of the QB position?
He tried to trade DJ and Bowe in 2009. If you were a GM who was "building your franchise on consistancy," why would you re-sign and franchise players that you tried to trade in your first year on the job? Guys you tried to trade because they were inconsistant? Furthermore, he tried to trade them for cheap and no one wanted them. What does that say?
This is the biggest headscratcher with Pioli to me. They are both as inconsistant as ever. They just make more money.
Also, it's far more than the QB position. We don't have enough players with talent that care. It's not just the coach, the GM, and the QB. It's the rest of the god damn team too.
The sooner Pioli gets fired, the sooner the media starts pointing the finger at the players.
