In a widely reported and depressingly telling stat, the Kansas City Chiefs are the first team since 1940 to not hold a lead in regulation through their first seven games.
During that seven game stretch the majority of criticism has been placed on quarterback Matt Cassel, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, first-year head coach Romeo Crennel and general manager Scott Pioli.
Pioli joined the Chiefs in 2009 after a highly successful nine-year tenure in New England in Player Personnel and brought a new excitement to Kansas City, but that excitement has quickly turned to frustration. A particular group of Chiefs fans took to the air on Sunday express this frustration but did not leave struggling QB and another former Patriot, Matt Cassel, out of the spotlight.
Scott Pioli and Matt Cassel are shouldering the majority of the blame for their 1-6 start and are only two of the high profile employees that may not be back in 2013.
