    Quality guy, no question about it.

    Soundbites from Scott Pioli - Reiss' Pieces - Boston.com

    There's a bit more about KC in the link above.

    My uncle in KC called me after he listened to the press conference nearly orgasmic. I quickly reminded him that he's only got a branch, he doesn't have the whole Belichick tree. :)

    He's a Chief now. I watched the press conference; I heard blah, blah, blah, blah, blah from one of the "other 31" with a few Patriot references in there.

    If only Scott had some doubt about Chad or Bethel ... :confused2: ... just saying,the hindsight thing ... hopefully Caserio can emulate Pioli.

    I think Caserio will do fine, he knows the system, what is expected and what to look for..

    There must have been more disagreements than agreements for him to leave otherwise why the big issue of who has final say in the decision making process? Can't imagine that money would have been an issue.

    ====================================================

    Is it official that Caserio is the one taking over for Pioli?

    I am sure this has been discussed, but am not sure where to look.

    I'm led to believe from reporting that his wife has immediate family in the area. Why wouldn't an administrator leave to further his own career and assume almost complete control over the development of a football list? On to bright and new challenges theory.

    He doesn't even get to pick the coach, he has to agree with the owner on that. If he's lucky they'll see eye to eye - this may not go as smoothly as he'd like. Obviously we'll see over time . . .

    I see your point. However involved in any large organisation, the top administrators are always accountable to someone. In Pioli's case it will be Clark Hunt.

    I'm giving rise to the fact that it's conceivable more of the final decisions will rest with Pioli as opposed to the executive rights of the righteous and annointed one in BB.

    Alot depends on the financial position of the Chiefs and the nature of spending Pioli will embark upon.

    He basically repeated the Patriots' mission statement. We don't need to be reminded of that, the program is in place. Would we have gotten to where we are without him ? Probably not. Will we be able to continue on now without missing him too much ? I have little doubt.

    unless mangini tries to lure him. nothing is official in NE until when they choose to make it official or if they feel the need. meanwhile the media will trip themselves guessing and speculating.

    Yes, I noticed the same thing -- He COPIED the Pats Mission statement in his opening press conference. My reaction was to be underwhelmed by that--I know it is a copycat league, but you'd think he would come up with something at least a little original or at least hold off on the duplication.

    It's about money, I bet.

    He's the big cheese in KC. Because Pioli makes all that money, they can never go after a Cowher or Shanahan. It's the reverse in New England.

    The Colts, Chargers and Steelers are all front office franchises. In fact, so are the Cowboys, but that's to their detriment.

    Pioli is definitely on my list with RAC and Weis. People who were extremely loyal to the Pats, and more than paid their dues before they found better jobs somewhere else. I root for ND because of Weis, I *was* pulling for the Browns, and now i'm going to pull for KC as long as none of it comes at the expense of the Pats.

    As far as the other two, I feel they sucked the teet of BB until they could jump ship as soon as they can. I was thrilled Mangina fell flat on his face, and i'm hoping the same happens to McDaniels.

    Mangini, I can agree with but JM has been with the Pats since March 2001. Of course not as OC so you may have a point but I don't think BB has a problem with Josh leaving. At least he didn't go to a division rival.

    I just think it was dumb of him to chase the money one of the first chances he gets. Teams obviously know WAY more than I do, so maybe he is ready, but I doubt it. The guy is 2 years older than me, I couldn't picture commanding the respect from NFL players because of my age. Then again, Theo was pretty young when he was hired and that turned out well.

    Granted, trying to deal with massive egos of players is probably tougher to deal with than the massive ego of agents. Theo didn't have to worry about losing the trust of 50+ guys because he loses a game or two.

    He's just about the same age Madden was when he became a head coach.
