    Chiefs owner lining up Pioli, Cowher?

    The abrupt dismissal of Carl Peterson signaled that Clark Hunt has a plan he's ready to execute. Hunt did not dynamite Peterson strictly for our edification, enjoyment and entertainment. There was a dual purpose. In my estimation, the logical conclusion to reach based on Hunt's action is that he has identified two targets to be Kansas City's next general manager and wanted to alert them that he's coming to woo and be wooed by them. There's going to be fierce competition for general managers this offseason. The Detroit Lions dumped Matt Millen early in the season and have had a head start on the Chiefs. The Cleveland Browns might make a move on Phil Savage and be in the market for a GM. Hunt would be foolish to wait to join the race for a personnel difference-maker. There are two no-brainer options: 1. New England Patriots vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli. 2. An experienced front-office executive with strong ties to and the ability to deliver former Steelers coach Bill Cowher. I think Hunt is zeroed in on landing Pioli or someone who can land Cowher.

    Wishful thinking? maybe, maybe not......Cowher still has ties in KC, he did coach there for 3 years as DC. I don't see Edwards coming back, I believe he is in his last year of his contract with the Chiefs Edwards had the backing of Hunt and Peterson to rebuild the Chiefs but with expectations of being in the playoffs in 2008. That ain't happening, Edwards is 15-32 as HC, everyone is talking Cleveland but who's to say Cowher won't land in KC or even Detroit?

    Cowher will have his choice of A list jobs if he decides to comeback. Detroit and KC do not fit the bill.

    I could live with Cowher in KC... I still really hate the thought of him in Cleveland!
