You scared?

Any of you guys worried this year marks the beginning of another seriously dry spell for Chiefs football? I can easily see them blowing for another decade based on this horrific tenure by Pioli. Am I just paranoid or is this a legitimate fear? I don't want to become a casual fan who watches 3 games a year.

Anybody have any reason for optimism in 2013 and 2014? I know high first round draft picks are reason for optimism but the bust rate for quarterbacks is higher than defensive linemen and we all know how we've fared selecting early defensive linemen.

Did you make that bet against KC vs CAR that we told you not to make?

As for the question, I am trying to look at the optimistic side of this. Recent teams have shown what a reset at the GM/HC/QB positions can do. Maybe it happens here, maybe it doesn't. If I believed it would take 8 years I certainly wouldn't be so passionate about this next set of moves by the organization.

Zach, you do realize that at the time, Pioli was the most sought after GM candidate in the league and Clark made him the highest paid GM?

Do you understand that?

Pioli was obviously the wrong GM choice, which some on CP even mentioned at the hiring, but he was the supposed "Golden Child" GM candidate at the time.

What exactly would you all have Clark do or would you have had him done since he's been owner?
Why would someone have a reason to criticize the ownership of the Kansas City Chiefs?

I can't think of a single reason.

I don't understand why we have to keep pointing this out. I realize the fanbase is jaded and cynical (and who can blame them) but, for crying out loud this is getting old.

Clark gets a bad rap that he has not yet earned. People had been crying for change. He gave them what they wanted, and is going to do so again. Chill out everyone.

All of this, theres always hope.

A GM with the right plan and a legit QB... and it could be like this never happened, very quickly.

Answer my question?

What should he have done?


You want him to be like Jerry Jones? Thats not Clark, thats not the way he's going to operate.

Could he be more involved? Yeah probably.


But he's not an owner that's going to run the show. Thats just not him.

This would be a good post if my main point was "owning and making decisions as an NFL owner is easy"

You are in that position because you are supposed to do your due diligence to make great decisions for you fan base, your family, and your bottom line.

Complete failure. But I am not convinced he understands how to run an organization that is successful.

We will see right? Or will we.

Hell even as bad as this team has been during Pioli's reign, we still made the playoffs a couple seasons ago. Just need a QB. It's a great place to start.

You get a good QB, things can turn around real quick.
Are you in the least familiar with the '99 Rams?

It will get worse before it gets better. The answer is always the same. Change the GM, Head Coach, hire new coordinators. I've seen this movie before, and it usually ends up the same.

KC has to find a way to get consisntency out of its players, coaches and FO. The Eagles will collapse when they lose Reid IMO. The teams that win consistently are those that stay the course, stick with the plan, and see it out. This change every 3-4 years BS will never work.
