From division champions, to the unemployment line. There's not a TON of good talent in KC, I can't see them getting a top of the line Coach.

This feels a little cold-blooded given that this team is without its starting QB and RB. By that logic, Chicago should fire Lovie Smith.

I don't think his record is the reason as much as his demeanor and arrogance. He wants to be the hoodie, acts like the hoodie and comes across as a dick.

I think you might have him confused with the General Manager.

Haley was gruff and unlovable and the gifs of him yelling FUCK YOU on the sideline were a bit too numerous, but he didn't trade for the waste of skin that is Matt Cassel. He didn't sit on his ass every offseason with tons of cap space and a roster with barely any depth. He didn't draft Tyson F. Jackson with the #3 pick so he could go REMEMBER WHEN ME AND BILL TOOK RICHARD SEYMOUR, CUZ I'M DOING IT AGAIN LOL.

Then there's the reassuring reports from multiple sources that, for at least a good year, Pioli was routinely leaking anti-Haley stories to his media buddies in order to undermine his own coach. "Hey Scott, why didn't you find a decent backup QB this offseason?" "Sorry, I was too busy telling that fat toad Michael Lombardi to write an article blaming Todd Haley for my own stupid decisions." "Gotcha!"

Bring on Josh McDaniels as Scott Pioli tells the word "No, I really AM smarter than everyone else, it's just taking longer than I thought to prove it."

Oh geez, and McDaniels' reputation is being somewhat salvaged by Tebow's emergence, too. I could totally see the Chiefs making that hire. Ugh.

You can't have a meltdown on the sidelines every week if your team isn't winning. He often seemed over matched at times anyways and probably would have been fired last year if the division didn't stink so badly.

NOT SO FAST. St Louis might have an opening in a few weeks.

Speak for yourself :-) Although if our first home playoff game had been next weekend instead of last night, I might have missed it.
