Ugh. Really? Sunday Night Football had the least irritating team of halftime analysts in the NFL, so naturally they decide to hire the guy that alienated an entire team, city, and coaching fraternity. Wish I could've ridden the coattails of Belichick and Brady to tens of millions of dollars and three NFL Executive of the Year awards.

Matt Millen got a broadcasting job after his stunningly bad run with the Lions, so this doesn't surprise me at all.

All he has to say is the opposite of what he actually would have done.

If only it were that easy. Unfortunately, there are a myriad of ways to fail and some of them are exact opposites.

I wouldn't have an issue with the Pats bringing him back onboard

Wait, a football guy detailing how he would/could have killed the future? Where have I heard that before...?

Nothing would make me happier than watching the Chiefs make the playoffs this year with Pioli sitting in that studio.

I hadn't thought about this scenario. Yes, let's have this thing happen.

That would be the only good thing to come out of his tenure with the Chiefs.

Thank god. I wouldn't know how to properly watch football without at least 17 analysts telling me what's going on.

Its actually fairly refreshing to hear him flat-out say "When I tried to do this, I stunk at it"

Every morning Matt Million wakes up and wishes he had never taken that Lions job.

Tony Dungy:  Scott, what can you tell us about the Bengals attempts to rebuild their roster and field a winning team in the AFC North?
Pioli:  It's a process.
Dungy:  ...
Pioli: ...
Dungy:  Could you elaborate on that?
Pioli:  I can't give specific details on that, just know that the organization is hard at work on turning this thing around.
Dungy:  Scott, you aren't a GM anymore.  You need to give us more information than that.
Pioli:  ...

Came for the Matt Millen references. Leaving not disappointed in the slightest.

Yeah what does he know about football. It's not like he was ever successful in the league.

I trust the analysis of random people on the Internet than that former NFL executive. Good point Subby.

He also never had final say in the places that he was successful.

A pasty, scared looking Florio and that fat slug Peter King really don't need any more competition in the suck department.

There were a lot of people who were successful at New England.  The only ones who are still successful are still at New England.  Considering that it was my team Pioli ran into the ground, I'll say whatever the fark I want about him.

So are they removing the 18 dumb ex-jock analysts currently on the show giving out the typical dumb ex-jock analysis about which team "wants" it more?

Of course not.

Which I can never understand.  If you go into any pro locker room after a loss and say "the other team just wanted it more"...they'd throw you out on your ear because of invalid the commentary is.

Then you put these same ex-players in the announcing booth or in a studio and they say stupid shiat like "the other team just wanted it more" as if it's true insight as opposed to stupidity they readily discounted during their playing days.

For example...99% of the things Phil Simms says...completely cliche-ridden nonsense.

You just have to keep two things in mind:  By and large, that will still be Pioli's team on the field, so you almost don't want playoffs this year (though really, yeah, Chiefs fans would).  Also, I'm guessing they'll be 9-6 going into week 17 and in the hunt for a playoff spot, only to have the clock, the playcalling, and timeouts mismanaged in the second half.  Also, Donovan McNabb may run out onto the field and throw up.

"Well, the key - and this is key - is to stand as close as possible to Bill Bellichick and try to take credit for his moves.  The good ones, really.  Not drafting of wide receivers, but the whole Tom Brady thing and the Superbowls.  Yep.  Over to you, Sally."

The guy knows more about football than I ever will, and I consider myself well-versed in the game.  But, there's something about him that makes me think he's trying to steal my grandmother's house.
