The Kansas City Star refuted a report from CBS on Sunday that the club had offered to extend the contract of general manager Scott Pioli.

The CBS report said Pioli and the Chiefs were discussing a two-year extension, despite the club's massive struggles this season. Kansas City is tied with Cleveland for the worst record in the league at 1-5.

Much of the blame in Kansas City had been laid at the feet of quarterback Matt Cassel and the offense, but Cassel was out of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay with a concussion, and replacement Brady Quinn could not muster an offensive touchdown as the Chiefs were hammered, 38-10.

Regarding Pioli, there is obviously plenty of work to be done in Kansas City to get things back on track. The question is how much more time will Pioli get to try and fix it.
