None of us will ever truly understand the horror of what former Patriot GM Scott Pioli and former Patriot defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel experienced over the weekend.

Crennel said during his press conference on Sunday that ‘I’m choosing not to answer any questions about what I saw yesterday’, and after reading Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback column this morning, you can understand why.

In the article King paints a picture of the final moments for Jovan Belcher, which had to be extremely difficult for the former Patriot coach and GM.

King writes that according to accounts from police, Pioli arrived at the Chiefs’ facility moments after Belcher, who was out of his car.  Pioli reportedly got out of his car and could tell that the linebacker was in an agitated state and as they were speaking Pioli noticed he had a gun.  He reportedly told Pioli during their conversation, “I came here to tell you thank you.  Thank you for my chance.  I love you, bro.”

According to King’s source Pioli tried to calm the player down, but wasn’t able to and he then asked Pioli if he could speak to Crennel and Chiefs linebacker coach Gary Gibbs.

Pioli then took out his cell phone and asked them to come outside, and the two coaches also tried to calm him down.  Belcher then thanked them for the opportunity and according to King, walked away – but after a few steps he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger.

It’s an unbelievable story and you have to feel bad for the three men who witnessed it.  Unfortunately the whole sequence of events should never have happened to begin with, which is something that we’ve already heard debated in the media after Belcher also allegedly took the life of his girlfriend, Kassandra Perkins, and left a little girl without two parents.

““We’re going to try put together a fund for her,” said Brady Quinn after yesterday’s game. “Obviously without having either parent in her life now, I think it’s important that she understands the type of love that she should get from a family.”

“We just want her to understand…you know at one point in time she might have some questions later on in life, and we want her to understand how much she’s loved and not reflect back on an event like this and look at it in a negative way. Hopefully she can understand and try to find a peace with it and move forward with her life.”
