I don't keep up on executives much, though, just saying that personally it seems like Caserio knows his stuff whether it's X's and O's or more big-picture stuff.
Wait, what? Give him more than a year to build a team before he's written off. Did people really expect the Chiefs to turn it around with a very tough first half of the schedule? I don't get that.

I easily expected the Chiefs to have 10 wins by now, at least

People are straight up spoiled by Mike Smith and Matt Ryan. Teams just don't instantly produce as soon as you bring in a new coach or GM.

Pioli is not going to do a rush job in KC, and the organization is not going to force him into that. They're completely redoing the defense there, and Pioli tried to help that defense by bringing in Tyson Jackson. Sure Jackson might have been a bit of reach, and it's possible that he'll never wow anyone with his play. But it was a safe pick, and it's going to pay off when Pioli starts bringing in studs to help that defense.

He got his QB of the future in Cassel, he knows that Bowe is the #1 there, and he's going to slowly build that offensive line up to protect Cassel and then fill in skill positions afterward (hopefully booting LJ somewhere in between).

He doesn't seem like a GM that's going to turn things around instantly, but instead make smart, calculated and most importantly safe moves to build that franchise correctly and make sure it's a constant contender in the some what struggling AFC west.

Pioli will not hurt Caserio's chances of helping another franchise in my opinion.

I'm not saying Pioli will be bad (I still hold out hope for him), just that so far he hasn't really improved anything in Kansas City, and that when people are evaluating Caserio for a potential GM job, they might look at the success rate of Pioli in Kansas City in his first year. Remember, everyone though Pioli hosed the Patriots on that deal for Cassel, but so far he hasn't really been making plays in Kansas City, and it's not like the Chiefs were bringing in all sorts of great players this offseason - most of their draft was relatively unimpressive. The Chiefs are looking like a very, very long term project. They have needs throughout the entire roster and only a few players who look like locks to stay on the team, mostly due to draft status or money invested and not really due to production thus far. You'd think they'd have at least beat the Raiders.

A brief bio on DeCosta from the Ravens website:

After leading the team’s college scouting department for six years, Eric DeCosta was promoted to director of player personnel in 2009. DeCosta works with GM Ozzie Newsome to oversee both the college and pro scouting departments. A graduate of the Ravens’ “20/20 Club,” Eric joined the franchise in an entry-level position in 1996, the team’s first in Baltimore. He was honored in 2005 by The Sporting News as one of the top young stars in sports and was selected to both the 2008 Baltimore Business Journal and Baltimore Magazine “40 under 40” group. He also served on the eight-member committee to interview and select Ravens head coach John Harbaugh in 2008. During DeCosta’s tenure as scouting director, the Ravens drafted Pro Bowlers LB Terrell Suggs (’03) and FB Le’Ron McClain (’07) and a number of other key contributors, including OLB Jarret Johnson (’03), WR Mark Clayton (’05), C Jason Brown (’05), DT Haloti Ngata (’06), G Ben Grubbs (’07), T Jared Gaither (’07 Supplemental Draft) and QB Joe Flacco (’08)

You guys should freeze Ozzie Newsome in hopes of bringing him back to life in the future.
