Bob Fescoe- The Haley Experiment Is Over
Sometimes you have to take a step back from a situation in order to not make an irrational decision. I had to do that with Todd Haley yesterday and I still came back to the same answer: The Haley experiment in KC is over.
The last two weeks of Chiefs football have been unacceptable. The Dolphins and Broncos, two teams less talented than KC, came to Arrowhead and put the Chiefs in their place. The blame can go towards a lot of people and one individual is not responsible for a loss. However, as the head coach, you are paid to get credit when things are good and paid to take the blame when things are bad.
After the Broncos game on Sunday, Jackie Battle said the team saw things they were not prepared for. In my opinion that all goes back to coaching. Even if Denver is doing different things from what you saw on film, you need to make in game adjustments to make sure your players are in the right position on each and every play. That did not seem to be the case on Monday.
It seemed that the two tackles, Albert and Richardson, did not do a good enough job stopping the outside rush and at no time did it look like the coaching staff did anything to rectify the situation.
The Chiefs have been up and down all season long and GM Scott Pioli said that he wants consistency on his team. Since Todd Haley has taken over as head coach, consistency has not even been in the vocabulary of the Chiefs.
Pioli needs to turn the program over to a well established head coach that will have the respect of the fans, the organization and the players. If it were up to me, I would target a guy like Jeff Fisher. Fisher has won in the NFL and has a winning pedigree. He may be able to come into KC and restore order to an organization that is looking for an identity.
