Josh McDaniels will be hired by Denver sometime today or tomorrow. In the meantime, Scott Pioli is about to ink a contract with Kansas City to be the new GM. He will be told one of two things:
1) honor Herm Edward's contract and give him one more year. If it doesn't work out, then go get your man.
2) go get your man...now.
It is pretty clear that Kirk Ferentz will be No. 1 on Pioli's hitlist of new coaches. Everything I read says that working for Kansas City is as close to NFL sanity as it gets. So, when you combine that fact with working for someone you trust, someone who even hired your son into the business (Brian works for the Pats now), and someone who will give you about as much opportunity to win as he possibly can, it just might be too difficult to pass this up--unless--you don't want to make that jump at all.
The KF goodbye watch has begun.
