08:08 AM ET 01.04 | A new regime in Kansas City may look a lot like the current regime in New England, with Andy Reid in the Bill Belichick role. Reid carried the title of head coach and executive vice president of football operations with the Eagles, where he worked for 14 years before his dismissal last Monday, the same day the Chiefs fired Romeo Crennel. Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said the new coach would report directly to him, and not to a general manager, and that's the system that has worked with several other franchises, including New England. ... Interestingly, the Eagles may revert to the traditional coach-reports-to-the-general manager structure depending on who replaces Reid.

Go all in. It can't get much worse. Well, it can, but I want to see it get worse.

OK, but the last seven superbowl winners did not use the one man power rule structure. Maybe it is just about the people and not the structure?

maybe Reid takes his other convicted felon ex con son with him to the Chiefs and their training camp.

What does this have to do with the story?

Nothing, but there are a few who like to wallow in the mire.

Good luck to Andy. The Chiefs are a pathetic team in a pathetic division.

I think it's safe to say that Andy is not Bill Belichick...

What makes the Chiefs think that he will be better with more control?

Could be more lean times on the horizon in KC.

Reid was making the final call on personnel in Philly. That ended badly. Shanahan was run out of Denver with that power after going 24-24 his last three years and producing one playoff win in ten years without Elway.

A good GM with power and a good coach working together has proven the best historically. BB is an anomaly, and a whole lot of that success is Brady being there. HCs tend to be short sighted, it is about winning now. FA and all of that.

Scott Pioli is out as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs after four years.

A team statement said the two sides mutually parted ways.

+1. BB is the exception to the rule. If you look at that type of power structure historically you'll see a lot more failures (Holmgren, Shanahan, Parcells, etc.) than successes.

I will never understand how any team lets a head coach interview for a job and dictate to THEM the working conditions. Honestly! that head coach interviewing just got fired form his last job.

Someone share that tidbit with Scott Piooli yet?
Doubt it along with the story.....

Exactly - picture the Holmgren disaster in Cleveland

Most of the Andy Reid haters just do not understand the sitution in Kansas City. The team has a below .500 record over the the combined last 6 years. Reid may be given more power than previouds KC coaches but he will still have consultants that will get this program going in a better directions. I can promise you that next year we will have an improved record and by year 2 we will have the QB in place and will be in the hunt for playoffs. Give the guy a chance is all you can do.

Each comment you make is more boneheaded than the one before.

Andy Reid is finsihed as a productive coach much like he is finished as a father.

I see that you have already proved my point.

With all respect to BB, you just nailed it.
