Kansas City Has List of People to Replace Scott Pioli and Other AFC West News
Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE
Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel find themselves on the hot seat.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ long national nightmare could finally lead to change. While Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel will compete for the starting job over the bye week and Romeo Crennel tries to understand why his team is playing so poorly, the ownership in Kansas City could be prepping for a change in the front office.

According to a tweet by NFL scout Russell Lande, Kansas City has a list of potential people to replace Scott Pioli as general manager. Lande subsequently tweeted that his source told him Todd Haley would be gone during the 2011 season and is saying the same thing about Pioli now.

 

 

 

 

It’s the second sign today that the tides could be turning in Kansas City. Matt Cassel was cleared for contact according to Romeo Crennel (via Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star), but he’ll share snaps with Brady Quinn and a starter will not be named until next week.

Despite Cassel’s poor play the Chiefs were hesitant to bench him in favor of Quinn until forced to do so by an injury. After Quinn’s performance on Sunday, the Chiefs had an excuse to go back to Cassel. It’s now clear the leadership in Kansas City is not steadfast in their support of Cassel, and by extension, it could be that the ownership is no longer steadfast in their support of Pioli.
