Only foolishness will allow Pioli to escape the Manning nightmare

The disaster scenario that arose as a possibility early last week, and has likely since kept Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and owner Clark Hunt awake at night, has finally become a reality.

Peyton Manning is a Denver Bronco. The world, as we know it, is coming to an end.

Well, maybe for Pioli.

Royals, Super Fan Chris at odds after season-ticket squabble

Last December, the Royals found a way to successfully alienate the second most-recognizable player in franchise history.

So, then, it should go as no surprise that the Royals have now found a way to successfully alienate possibly its most prominent and committed season-ticket holder in franchise history.

The following video drives KU fans crazy, and only adds fuel to the fire for the Mizzou faithful.

Pioli must justify decision to sign Routt over Carr

Chiefs fans want to believe cornerback Stanford Routt will be a positive addition to the team's ever-improving defense. They want to believe general manager Scott Pioli's decision to sign Routt — and all but close the door on the possibility of retaining cornerback Brandon Carr — was a smart and calculated risk in terms of football economics.

They want to believe the Chiefs aren't cheap, and that this was the right decision.

It's just, right now, that's merely impossible.

Allowing Bowe and/or Carr to walk would be indefensible

If general manager Scott Pioli is simply sticking to a tried-and-true Patriot Way-stricken plan, then let me be the first to say the outline is utterly unidentifiable.

Because it's hard to imagine the Kansas City Chiefs as an on-field improvement in 2012 without wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and cornerback Brandon Carr aiding the surge.

With NFL free-agency set to begin in less than a month, that nightmare is slowly becoming a bleak reality.

Manning presents a golden opportunity for the Chiefs

Peyton Manning may not be healthy. Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli may not be willing.

Past that, though, in-lies a golden opportunity for a team and quarterback who'd each be crazy not to at least entertain the possibility of a future together.

For Crennel to matter, Pioli must adjust

Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli is assuring fans they should feel excited about this day, but in reality, how can they be?

"Let us go through the process," stresses new head coach Romeo Crennel.

Oh boy.

Pioli needs to pick a coach and get on with it

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli is already a day late and a dollar short. What the hell is he waiting for?

If Romeo Crennel is to be the team's next permanent head coach, the thing should have been done yesterday. Literally.
