This whole situation is getting ridiculous. The Boston Globe keeps on insisting that things between the Kansas City Chiefs and Scott Pioli are really heating up. Then the folks at the Kansas City Star counter by reporting that Denny Thum “Up His Butt” is saying that he and Clark Hunt just want to have a GM in place by the Super Bowl. Talk about the news being all over the place.
Personally, I think things lie somewhere in the middle. Negotiations are taking place and moving along somewhat steadily, but nothing is quite imminent. We all know by now that Hunt moves with the speed of a Special Olympics hurdler when it comes to personnel moves. So, let’s all take a deep breath and exercise some patience before Chiefs Nation’s collective head explodes.
Still, I wonder what the ripple effect of the Broncos hiring Josh McDaniels will be. If Pioli wanted McD to by his man, then that’s going to be another big obstacle that must be overcome.
