Clark Hunt took action as soon as the season was over when he could do something about it.
This is what I think is the best thing Clark did with a bad situation. He secured one of the top coaching candidates shortly after he became available. He put KC back on the map as a top destination even with Chicago and San Diego sitting on the board and considered two of the most attractive job openings. I eat crow on that one and I think he's done a great deal to rehab the image of KC not being a desirable destination at this time.

So once again, kudos! Great first step!!!!

I think it's a homerun hire. He'll get more out of our "Pro Bowlers" and prove that there really is talent on this team. Goota love having the number one pick, worthy QB's available, and a QB guru to size up the situation and pick the right one.

Clark took lots of heat here during the Pioli regime as being too hands off. He addressed that and now appears to want to take a more active role.

Then he goes out and hires Reid, who from what I understand wants free reign to do things he wants. I read an article that Reid was fired by the eagles in part because he was too quick to change things around looking for things that worked. That's exactly what we've been screaming about here for at least 3 years.

I wonder how Clark and Reid will mesh, but as a fan I'm glad he went out and made a move.

Hopefully a change of scenery is what Reid needs to get back to his earlier success. Who he picks for coaches will be a very important part.

We really can't get much worse than we were so today it's good to be a chief fan. The draft can't come quick enough.

All reports were that was what he wanted to do. But he didn't. Because he recognized that Pioli was a pariah in this league. So he spent the money and not only fixed it, but went straight to work to hire his guy. Jumped in front of Arizona, and spent 9 hours selling the Chiefs to Andy Reid. AFAIC, he's one of, if not the very best owner in this league. I'll be dangling off of Clark's nutsack for at least the next 4-5 years. Happily.
This. **** the stupid bitch.

That, my friend, is an ass-kicking statement from your owner. And, frankly, I'm surprised it didn't get more traction around the city. He's saying he'll spend money but he expects something in return and gets pissed off when he's basically taken for a fool.

Then, of course, because no one else seems to be able to do so, he proceeds to take it upon himself to fix the problem.

There's more to Clark than meets the eye. We should be damn happy to have him.

The perception that Clark Hunt is cheap has always been a false percetion.

The man paid a shit ton of money for the (widely considered) best GM candidate on the market in '09, and spent money on a staff that included two of the most proven coordinators in the league during Pioli's tenure.

Now he's throwing money in the shitter to rid this franchise of the shit stain GM, and bringing in another high profile hire to run things.

I am not sold that Reid is the right guy, but I give props to Hunt for making an all out effort to fix things.

But, I think most of those 7 failed miserably with short tenures in their first HC roles.

No doubt, Clark hedged all bets with this hire. But then, the same can be said of the Pioli hire, and therein lie the workings of failure for the Chiefs. I'm just as hopeful as the next guy this team is going to finally build steam under Andy Reid & co -- like most of you I expect as much, but I do not reward bad behavior.

Clark needs to get his shit in line and stop treating the Chiefs like an investment that can never go wrong -- which, for Clark is completely true by virtue of the NFL Corporation's revenue structure combined with his father's initial meager investment into the team.

But for the sake of fans who have endeared decades of embarrassing performances, these policies & truths have all but provided a counter productive outcome throughout the team's existence and Clark is the only person charged with the responsibility & authority to change this.

i certainly wasn't criticizing him, as I think he did the right thing. I'm just not sure such an action warrants a bow/victory lap prior to some actual results.

Lets visit this for a moment...Gruden, Dungey, Vermeil, Tom C, is a majority and they were all successful with their first team. Even the Hoody himself had some success in cleveland, ironically less than the others. So, id say your satement is false without digging too deep on the subject.

Gruden's first stint was pretty short.

Reid's situation is pretty similar to Dungy, Vermeil, and Coughlin though, which bodes well.

THIS. Enough about the 'Cheaps'. I think you're wrong ultimately on Reid, but I always appreciate your takes, Milkman.
