- Since many in the Kansas City area have been demanding that Pioli get the boot since mid-season, this morning's news that he and the Chiefs had mutually decided it was time for Pioli to move on was met with glee by many Twitter users.
- But @Judo_Brad was wrong. At least one person will miss Scott Pioli.

- But there wasn't much time to well on the Pioli news because soon Twitter's attention turned to the fact that Andy Reid would become the next coach of the Chiefs.

- And if you've been on Twitter in the last 24 hours, you've probably seen an Andy Reid-loves-barbecue-and-looks-like-a-walrus joke being thrown around. They're starting to get a little old.
