There are reports surfacing this morning that GM Scott Pioli will not be fired after the season comes to a close following today’s game against the Denver Broncos. Yahoo! Sports’ Jason Cole tweeted out that he had heard this from “a league source” that Pioli would stay but with “significant changes” (meaning Crennel would be gone, and they’ll be getting a new QB) and Pro Football Talk has a piece up this morning saying that Pioli staying and Romeo leaving is “the prevailing rumor in league circles.” I don’t know how much credit to give a “league source” and “league circles,” but if they are correct it sounds like many KC fans won’t be getting what they really wanted for Christmas (a complete turnover in the organization).

Also making the morning rumor rounds is speculation that if Pioli stays he will hire Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz as Romeo’s replacement.

So what do you think, Addicts? Do you place any weight in these reports? Has anyone’s head exploded yet? Would you be able to get behind Pioli staying if there was a new coach and a new QB? Regardless of what happens we’ll keep you posted here at AA during what should be an interesting offseason that is only hours away.
