Pioli Talks Larry Johnson, Combine Cop-Outs


Scott Pioli was interviewed on the NFLN about an hour or two ago. He was asked a number of questions about the Chiefs, but here’s what I found most interesting…

On Larry Johnson:

There’s no situation. He’s under contract…

There’s no situation. He’s a Chief and we’re moving forward.

On draft prospects who choose not to work out at the NFL combine (ahem, Matt Stafford):

I don’t know if it irks me, but it certainly makes me wonder why would they turn down a stage like this to perform?

If you’re good, just go out and show it.

I love it. In one fell swoop the guy boosts L.J.’s value, or at least re-opens the door for him to return (argh), and takes a shot at Stafford. I agree on Stafford, by the way. Mark Sanchez was chomping at the bit to get out there and show what he can do. What does it say about Stafford that he’s scared to throw at the combine?

I’m just not sure about this kid. I think we’ve gone from Matty Ice to Natty Ice in one year’s time. And as you know, Natty Ice ain’t all that great when you’re thinking with a sober mind.
