Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter Scott Pioli out in KC.

Recommended Posts

Probably the only also-ran GM candidate I'd be excited to see us hire, otherwise I'm all about one of the candidates that would be a first-timer whose names have been coming up. Heckert is likely to join Reid.

This guy worked wonders in kc. Woohoo!

They have a pretty solid nucleus of players there, they just made a huge mistake with Cassel and never found another QB. That said, he's the best of the experienced GM's available for our club, I think. Better than AJ Smith. I mean if we could lure someone like Mike Lombardi out of TV, that would be nice too, or eve Casserly, but I think for me it's got to be one of the candidates from the 49ers, Giants, Falcons, Packers or Pioli.

Pioli knows if he can fix the Jets, win a championship, he will be immortalized. He also has to know at this point that another failed stint anywhere since NE means it wasn't him, but Bellichik will get the credit for building the winners up there.

Plus Pioli reads JetNation when he wants Jets news. So we would be in good shape here. :)

Pro: KC had five pro bowlers this year.

Con: KC had a player commit a murder/suicide this year.

Too soon?

Typically, the "too soon?" question is asked after a joke. This isn't a joke, it's an irrelevant statement.

Here is my favorite Scott Pioli story. This is up there with the Bitonti \ Terry Bradway story.

Can you bump the bitonti bradway thread?

Edit- Please

Meh, neither have anything on when I lit up Marquis Daniels and dunked on Vince Carter.

This is a stupid way to interpret what I wrote.

I interpreted it just fine. Pioli did everything well except invest in a sh*tty QB and fail to find another one. We need a GM who is willing and able to invest all resources towards finding an acceptable QB for the team's future. Everything else is of less importance.

I hope the Jets share my complete lack of interest in Pioli.

I can't imagine a scenario where they don't talk to him. That said, I'm more intrigued by the guys like Ross and Gamble.

To his credit, Cassel was outstanding with the Patriots. I do agree with your premise, but to label Pioli as the "guy who can't get a QB" is stupid. He made an informed decision with Cassel, and then the guy imploded.

The scenario in which they're in a rush to sign someone better comes to mind.

That's why it didn't come to mind... doesn't exactly sound like something we've come to expect from the Jets, ya know?
