At the very least you'd think Moore would want to make sure the franchise was going about making the decision in the right fashion. Even if Moore's not supplying the name, he could be asking questions like "Is this the guy we want or the guy we think we can sign?"
Hence, showing the "wisdom" of KC waiting until this close to the draft to fire Baird. They knew they had the first pick in the draft, his job obviously was in jeopardy, and they are paying him whether they fire him after last season or in the middle of this one. Now, they've wasted an offseason and potentially the 1st pick in the draft to indecision because of a regime change right before the draft. Just an idiotic way to do business, if you ask me.
