    cy, feel free to kiss my rear. This the best signing for Pioli since he got here. An absolute grade A. But one signing in 3+ years, ever heard of the blind squirrel?

    Add this to Boss and to a lessor degree the others, the Chiefs are positioning themselves for the 2012 playoffs. Even if Manning end up in denver, the Chiefs will make a move upward. Got to wonder if the posibility of Manning taking over in denver, motivated Pioli?

    Think Manning is headed to Titans anyways. I think as Pioli said over and over he was going to make moves this season in free agency think possibility of playing against Manning had little to do with it. It was more of I got my guy at head coach with Crennel this is my last hire if I don’t make moves to make team best it can be so I’m going to do everything in my power put Chiefs in position to win this yr. That’s not to say he didn’t think that first 3yrs as GM because we sure have gotten better as a team from 2009 to 2011. If we sustain those injuries in 2010 we would’ve not come close to winning the division in 2010. People bash Pioli but reality is every yr he’s improved the team. Now with what he’s doing on top of what he has done put Chiefs in position to finally break the 16 or 17 yr drought of not winning a playoff game. Ridiculous its been that long since we won a playoff game yet Bob likes to praise Peterson like he was just this great GM please. Pioli track record in his 1st 3 seasons as GM is runs circles around what Carl done for the franchise. On top of fact give me Pioli for 20yrs I see championships not playoff droughts.

    This has been, already, a succesful free agency. Anything more is just gravey. They filled holes with quality players and, just as importantly, opened up a lot of freedom for the draft. I have given Pioli/Hunt grief because I’m a fan and I want to win. Front office gave me a feeling sometimes that I wanted it more than they did. Fans sometimes feel that way. But I have to give them credit for free agents signing and I hope they do as well in the draft. Thank you Chiefs.

    So cid, you’re over here. :)

    I have no desire to kiss your rear. You’re so full of crap it may explode out at any minute. If the man you love to hate (Scott Pioli) signs a NT you will explode. The crap will fly everywhere cid.

    It must really suck when the team you love to hate on makes all the right moves. Sucks to be you ;)

    My dreams are your nightmare.
    Tonight I will be dreaming of Routt covering 2nd WRs; Hillis complementing Charles, catching 50 passes and scoring in the red zone; Boss complimenting Moeaki, catching 50 passes and scoring in the red zone; Winston blocking at RT better than any RT we’ve had since Tait; Quinn filling in if Cassel ever gets banged up; signing Franklin at NT; and drafting for depth and development not need.
    Go Chiefs!

    cy, don’t give up on the kiss, it probably will be the only chance you have tonight. Good Lord, it’s Saturday. Sorry. I think even cid is happy about all of the signings; it’s been a very good free agency. cid is a fan that wants the best for the Chiefs. But, like me, we don’t have thirty years to wait. And Pioli, you have to admit, did not start out blazingly fast. This is the best actions from the front office I’ve seen for a while. I hope it gets better. As for your dreams, good luck with that. Here’s hopeing.

    It is great that the “nobody will come here because of the bad publicity the front office has been getting” train is apparently off the tracks. From what we’ve been led to believe from the analysts on NFL network, Winston was highly sought after. Not only did we need a quality right tackle, but his signing proves that some of the local sports talk hosts (Nick Wright) exaggerated the bad reputation angle the front office was thought to be gaining. Even if these signings don’t work out as well as we all hope, it is good to see our front office working hard to make this team better.
