USA Today comes to the same conclusion as the rest of us
Among the rest of USA Today's evaluation of NFL Sports for this weekend's games in Friday's paper is the fact that the Chiefs are in a bad way and that things need to chage: As chill in air grows, hot seats come out
8:24PM EDT October 25. 2012 - Firing season has started early in the NFL this year. Less than a week after Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid dismissed defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, the Carolina Panthers dumped general manager Marty Hurney on Monday.
And the season hasn't even hit halftime.
More changes are coming. That's a fact of life in the pressurized, win-now NFL, where patience seems to be more a liability than a virtue.
Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel, Kansas City Chiefs. While Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has not sent any public signals suggesting his brain trust is in jeopardy, fans are getting restless amid a 1-5 start. There's a Save Our Chiefs site on Twitter with 70,000-plus followers. Will fourth-year GM Pioli get another offseason to draft the quarterback of the future? His 2009 trade for the quarterback of the future, Matt Cassel, has been a bust.
Crennel is just in his first full season, but his fate is likely tied to Pioli's.
Hope for a good game and outcome this weekend. One of the only teams that stink as bad as the Chiefs lately is the Raiders.
