Scott Pioli: The Reason For Kansas City’s Turnaround

This week, the Kansas City Chiefs will head into Gillette Stadium for a Monday Night Football matchup against the New England Patriots.  While former Patriot, Matt Cassel will not play due to a hand injury, the game will still be a homecoming for former Patriot executive and current Kansas City GM Scott Pioli. Pioli was […]

Eric Mangini Wants to be Friends with Bill Belichick Again

Apparently, former Bill Belichick colleague and betrayer Eric Mangini wants to kiss and make up with the Patriots’ coach.
