Pioli's 'save my job' media tour too little, too late
The Kansas City Star
Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli decided he would spend Wednesday glad-handing the local media as he tries to save his job.
His discussion with The Star can be found here.
Good luck finding any meaningful comments about how he could have done his job better, such as spending more money on better players, for instance.
He also refused to answer three questions straight up, as another example.
As well, Pioli is meeting with radio talk-show hosts and TV people.
It’s too late for Pioli’s excuses. He’s built a football team that has made the playoffs only once while under his control.
He’s hired two coaches - Todd Haley and Romeo Crennel - who turned out to be failures on the field.
Haley was fired; Crennel should be.
Ultimately, owner Clark Hunt makes the call on Pioli. Given the inferior product being delivered for the millions of dollars paid by Chiefs fans, that wouldn’t seem to be that difficult of a call.
