02:16 PM ET 10.18 | The Kansas City Chiefs are off to 1-5 start. Some consider them to be the worst team in the NFL. Embattled general manager Scott Pioli is taking plenty of heat for the team's troubles, and on Thursday he told fans that the team's poor start rests on his shoulders. "It should come to me," Pioli said. "At the end of the day, I was hired to be the leader of the football operation. And as you said, they don???t need to go to ??? the fans and the media ??? they don???t need to go to other people to find out or ask the questions, or even [state] their frustrations. When I signed that contract on the dotted line, that???s part of what you sign up for. And that???s my responsibility, because at the end of the day I???m responsible for the football operation, and things are not going well right now. There should be some frustration towards me, and I understand it."

I think the caption should be "Half of Scott Pioli's face and most of his bald head."
