I really like him & his father they have great success going in indianapolis and i guess you can scratch him off the wishlist for 2010 oh well.

I myself was hoping we would be able to get the younger Polian, but as always we are a step behind. I'd like to see how they replace Peyton though. IMO it wouldn't shock me if after he left the team went into the toilet.

This may be the official statement but it was mentioned two days ago in the "Our next Coach" thread. Supprised no one got upset when it was mentioned then.

Hadn't heard. Been working so much the past few days I've barely had time to breathe.

I guarantee you that he, just like Scott Pioli earlier this year was never even on Lil' Danny's radar.

Never forget these words from Dork Owner on changing up the front office after Gibbs left: [B]"I'm a firm believer, if it ain't broke, don't fix it."[/B]

Why do you think Peyton is leaving?

Well Pioli hasn't shown anything yet, besides Darth Hoody was the reason for success in NE not Pioli.

Not sure what there is to get upset about exactly. It's not like he was a legit candidate to leave the Colts, let alone join the Redskins. It's like being upset with Drew Brees re-signing with the Saints

So you think Pioli had nothing to do with it in NE? It's still a bit early to see anything from him in KC.

Look this is the way I see it. Here is a list of the great organizations.
Eagles+McNabb=Great Organization
Colts+Manning=Great Organization
Steelers+Rothlesberger=Great Organization
Patriots+Brady=Great Organization
Saints+Breese=Great Organization
Chargers+Rivers=Great Organization
Vikings+Farve=Great Organization

Teams Begin and end with their QB.

Considering he would've been a top target for many needy teams I can see why they gave him the promotion.

Hasn't this been in the works for a while? His dad has long been known to be retiring this year, and Chris's ascent to GM was only a matter of time. Today, the formality took place.

He had something to do with it, but it wasn't all on him. I still think it was a bit foolish for him to go after Cassel (didn't he give away picks?) and he probably should have gotten rid of LJ just like he traded Tony G.

I'm sure Pioli would be an upgrade from what we have, but I think there are better options for GM out there.
