Lavelock: Telling it like it is: Chiefs should give Edwards a longer look

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards walks the sidelines ...

According to ESPN’s “sources” (who are these sources anyway, and why are they leaking information?), New England Patriots vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli will be hired as the Chiefs’ new general manager.


This was just announced on Tuesday afternoon, and most pundits have already deduced that it will spell the end of Herman Edwards’ tenure as the head coach. Pioli will want to bring in his own guy so that they can be on the same page when they go about building the team, and it has been speculated that Giants’ defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will be the leading candidate to replace Edwards.


I understand the idea of wanting the general manager and the head coach to have the same philosophies when it comes to the strategies of player personnel moves and everything that goes along with them. Bad things can happen when that relationship isn’t there (see San Diego general manager AJ Smith’s relationship with Marty Schottenheimer when he was their coach).

Judgment day for Herm Edwards

Herm Edwards presided over the two most dismal seasons of Chiefs football in 30 years. The Chiefs went 4-12 in 2007 and 2-14 in 2008, yet that might not have been the worst part of Edwards’ three-year tenure.

If new general manager Scott Pioli, as expected, decides to make a coaching change, Edwards can trace his downfall to 2006, when the Chiefs actually made the playoffs.

The Chiefs’ wild-card berth that season delayed Edwards’ plan to overhaul an aging team, and by the time his program was fully put into place this year, he tried to implement it with too much youth too soon and failed.

“We had a plan,” he reflected toward the end of a season-ending nine-game losing streak in 2007. “It just didn’t come about.”

Consequently, all signs indicate the Chiefs failed to make enough progress to retain Edwards, whose club lost 23 of the last 25 games.

Covitz: Kraft, Belichick praise Pioli’s work in New England

The New England Patriots gave a ringing endorsement for new Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli, who was part of that organization for three Super Bowl championships.

“Scott Pioli was an integral part of the many championships the New England Patriots have celebrated this decade, and I would like to thank him for his countless contributions throughout the past nine seasons,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said in a statement.

“Scott is a great evaluator of talent. He is thorough in his evaluations, extremely organized and has done a tremendous job mining all possible resources to help Coach Belichick. “He has played an important role in building a championship tradition with players that I am proud to call Patriots. … Clark Hunt and the Kansas City Chiefs have made a very wise hire.”

Pioli to Chiefs

Posted by Mike Reiss, Globe Staff January 13, 2009 03:27 PM

Patriots vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli is leaving the team to run the Kansas City Chiefs football operation, a league source confirmed to the Globe today.

ESPN's Michael Smith was among the first to report the news this afternoon. The National Football Post also reported this afternoon that Pioli has accepted the job.

In prior reports, the Globe indicated that a potential marriage between Pioli and the Chiefs was gaining momentum.

On Sunday and Monday, the Globe reported that the intensity of talks between Pioli and the Chiefs was rising and that the possibility of him going to Kansas City was looking more like a realistic possibility.

ESPN's Smith also reported that director of player personnel Nick Caserio would take Pioli's job in New England.

Also, following up on today's Globe report that special teams coach Brad Seely and special assistant/secondary coach Dom Capers weren't expected to be back with the Patriots, the Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Seely is expected to join the Browns.

SI: Chiefs give Pioli complete charge of football operations

p1.pioli.jpg
Scott Pioli, who helped build and lead a dynasty in New England, is now in charge of a Kansas City franchise which hasn't won a playoff game in 14 years.

The 43-year-old Pioli will be introduced on Wednesday as Chiefs general manager, replacing Carl Peterson.

"He will have complete charge of football operations," Ryan Petcoff, an assistant to Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt, told The Associated Press. "He will report only to Clark."

The fate of coach Herm Edwards and his staff was not immediately known.

Pioli, who became vice president of player personnel for the Patriots in 2002 and spent nine years working with head coach Bill Belichick, also interviewed for the general manager vacancy this month in Cleveland.

He inherits a young team coming off a 2-14 season, but is stepping into a situation that seems ripe for a quick turnaround.

2-14 Chiefs see better days ahead

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen (4) passes against ...


Edwards sees reason to be optimistic after getting 70 starts from rookie class
01:26 AM CST on Sunday, January 11, 2009


When coach Herman Edwards looks at his 2008 Kansas City Chiefs, he doesn't see a 2-14 team.

He sees a team with a future.

For six consecutive seasons, the Chiefs were one of the oldest teams in the NFL. But as their players aged, their stock as playoff contenders diminished. The Chiefs slid from a 13-3 team in 2003 to a 4-12 team in 2007.

So the Chiefs made an organizational decision to get younger in 2008. Kansas City drafted a league-high 12 players last April, and Edwards made the commitment to put them on the field.

Globe: Chiefs talk heating up, Gostkowski named to All Pro team

The Boston Globe is reporting that Scott Pioli and the Kansas City Chiefs are getting serious.

While they have yet to begin contract negotiations, Pioli appears to be the Chiefs' first choice for the position.

More importantly, Pioli appears to be interested in the position.

Initial reports indicated that Pioli wanted full control of an organization (similar to what Belichick has in New England). The Chiefs are not offering him that opportunity.

The Chiefs keeping the GM and President positions separate, and are offering only the GM position to Pioli.
