I will be ok with the hire (like I or anyone has a choice) as long as he keeps the offensive system we run intact by keeping Terry Shea or someone like that to run the offense. We don't need AS to run the offense, we just need one of the other coaches, like Shea or someone else.

I'd rather have Saunders though.

I think he's a safe pick by CP.

I think this is a shitty year to need a coach...where are the Marvin Lewis's?

I think he's a bad combo of DV's emotion and Marty's play to lose attitude.

I think I'd probably rather have Saunders.

I think if he gets a playoff win I'll gladly eat crow.

Who knows, really? He's probably just going to bring us more mediocrity...that's all CP understands.

Neither love it or hate it, it is more of a shoulder shrug type of decision. As long as we don't give up a 1st or 2nd rounder I won't feel strongly one way or another. I do think he is much to much like Marty for me to be thrilled with his hiring. There really are not a lot of candidates right now that seem all that.

My feelings on Herm are undecided. I'd rather not give up draft picks, and I'd rather have Saunders, but Herm's success or lack thereof will be determined by his coordinators. He's not an Xs and Os. guy. Once we find who his coordinators are, I'll be able to answer the question.

As a motivator / administrator, Herm is fine I think. I wanna know the damn coordinators, though.

Yep, Herm is not Parcells, but he's not some softie who just gets walked all over. I think he's a good fit for the team we have right now. Maybe if we had a different kind of team I'd be more in favor of someone like Stoops or somebody else, but I think this team would respond best to Herm Edwards.

I don't think Herm can take a sow's ear and make a silk purse. He's not going to make Eric Hicks a player. It took DT on the other side to do that. He's not going to make Bartee a player. Herm can't make John Browning 10 years younger.

We need talent. And to get that talent we need draft picks. And we are (reportedly) giving up picks to land this guy.

Indeed he did.

Martin has always been a role player.

He's great against the run and fundamentally sound, but he's got poor NFL speed. As far as the college game he was great, but he can't get after the QB.

Honestly, I'm shocked someone didn't make him a 3-4 end with the strength he's got...

That's all I can think of too.

I would only want to give up picks if the coach won a Super Bowl already. Gruden's coaching was a big part of their SB win, so that was worth it. Gruden's offensive genius was enough to put them over the top, because of that defense to help it out as well. We don't have that many of the pieces of the puzzle in place to hire a defensive minded head coach and then expect an immediate run to the SB. I don't expect us to make hardly any moves this offseason, besides maybe trading for Herm Edwards. And Hermy won't be enough to get this team over the top. Same talent, same ole' story for the D next year, IMO, possibly...

Carl is giving up draft picks for a coach with a 39-41 career record, a guy who hasn't finished better than 10-6 and is coming off a 4-12 season.

That's two more than we've had since 1993. What other candidates out there can get this team over the hump? Vermeil had a helluva resume and still couldn't get it done. Maybe he should've hung around another year a la Holmgren, who wasn't too popular in Seattle this time last year. If being owned by Belichick is bad, try being owned by Mike Martz.

And there was any coach out there who had done what you just said, he wouldn't be available...

That's my point, some people on here are acting like there is some superior coaching God available. Well, where is he? I think Herm is about as good as we can do for what's available.

Another thing to remember about Herm...

He hired Paul Hackett as OC and stuck with him for 4 years.

He hires Hackett AFTER Hackett's debacle in KC and at USC and then sticks by him for 4 years, despite having a punchless offense for most of that time.

Smells like a case of being too loyal to me (Vermeil-Greg Robinson anyone?)

That's the NFL though. Most Super Bowl winners have easy schedules. The Pats the last couple years being the exception to that. But the Bucs before them, the 01 Pats, 00 Ravens, 99 Rams.. and this year's Colts all got to where they were with less than killer schedules.

Sure. Just more proof the Jets weren't that great of a team. If they were so great they'd have been better than 10-6 and won more playoff games.

The only thing I'm going to come back to is this. Who in the hell do you guys want? This isn't exactly coaching central this year for the crop available. Herm Edwards is one of the best guys available this year, what do you want?

This team hiring a college coach right now would just be dumb. We have to many veteran players on the team to go that route yet.

That, in itself Mecca, is the problem. I do not want Hermie. I however, have no fricking clue who I DO want. I was leaning towards Williams. I do not care for Saunders, but I would take him for a year or two until better prospects open up. Next year under Saunders would just be like granting DV an extension (which I would have been open to as well)...

In all seriousness, I would like to hear who the PLAYERS want as their next coach. That in itself would determine which of the vets hang around and which ones hang up their cleats. This is a vet team. It could (especially the offense) run itself. If CP farks up, we loose our vet leadership.

Hey, I said this in the other thread. 90% of the NFL is "conservative" and old school. If you want a guy to take a bunch of chances, Al Saunders is definitely your guy.

But most guys we are going to hire and going to be far more conservative in nature than what we've seen the last 5 years. That was my biggest selling point for Al Saunders when we were discussing him.

I am in Al's camp.

But I always point to a couple of examples when I talk about this.

Brian Billick, with Trent Difer at QB, tight game late,against the Raiders team backed up on thier own 8(?0.

1st down, he has Dilfer passing, which turns into a 92 yard TD to Shannon Sharpe.

Bill Bellichick, with about a minute left in the SB against the Rams, tied with a QB that came off the bench late in the season, rather than take a knee and play for OT, he plays to set up a FG that wins the game.

That's the kind of coach I want.

Herm's teams probably could afford to punt (much better on D) and would be far less likely to pick that one up on offense, so it's hard to know what he would do given different personnel. Pennington can only throw about 10 yards when healthy, so I doubt they'd pick it up.

So would most NFL coaches.

This is what I'm saying. I am not saying Herm is going to be as aggressive, he's not... but we've been spoiled the last 5 years. Every coach we hire that's not named Al Saunders is going to be a big step down in aggressiveness in situations like that. Even Belichick would've punted and let his defense do the work there.

That's one of the reasons I've defended Al around here, because he's the only guy that's gonna keep that aggressiveness we all want to see and I think fans will miss that when it's gone. Anybody else we hire is going to get ripped for "Martyball" at some point, because most coaches play it by the book in punt/FG situations. Just like when we went for the last play TD against Oakland this year, people treated that like we'd discovered a new country or something. "Whoa... they... went for it..."

Out of the candidates available, Id rather have Herman Edwards. He took a noodle armed QB and went to the playoffs 3 out of 5 years with 2 playoff wins. More than any Chiefs coach can say for the last 13 years.


Im so sick of Al Saunders' cutesy f'in playcalling that he cannot be shown the door fast enough. Saunders fans, if it werent for your savior's colossal playcalling f-ups against Philadelphia AT HOME, we wouldnt have surrendered the biggest comeback in franchise history. Hey, if the "genius" couldve mustered up more than 3 goddamn points against the superpower that is the mighty, night unstoppable Buffalo Bills :rolleyes: , we likely win that game too. Or how about if your savior knew when to attack the weak point of an opponent? San Diego had the #2 rush defense and the #29 pass defense, and Al does not call a downfield pass for the entire first half out in SD. Oh sure, someone went up to the box and helped him wrench his head from his ass, and then he tried to get it done in the second half, but by that time it was far too late.

So dont try to come in here pointing out playcalling flaws in another coaching candidate. If it werent for Al Saunders getting bored with his job and not doing what he was supposed to be doing, the Chiefs would have won at least one, if not all three of the aforementioned games and they would be in the playoffs right now. Al Saunders, dont let the door hit you where the good lord split you motherf***er. See your ass later.

Moreover, the last time Al Saunders was a head coach, it was a colossal disaster. In his first job as head coach, Herm Edwards took over a bad Jets team and took them to the playoffs 3/5 years. In Al Saunders first job as HC, he took over a bad Chargers team and made them worse.

Herm Edwards isnt a perfect coach, but he isnt Al Saunders or Mike Martz either. Compared to the other coaches available, in my opinion he is the best choice.

Hey, hey, hey now.

Why you talking all that sense? Don't you know one man's trash is another man's treasure... ;)

Simple fact of the matter is, that Carl doesn't have the balls to actually go out and search for a new coach. He is willing every time to turn to a friend or someone tied to the program of years past. He too deeply involved in the friends network theory. There are no real friends in a performance based business. Consider this, it's the easy way out without him having to do his actual job IMO. Which is is him providing the best product he possibly can. And I don't see him doing that . I see him jumping, and I mean literally jumping at Herman Edwards like their is a pack of teams after the guy. Nobody wants Herman. It's looks like his own team doesn't want him.

Why doesn't Carl interview all the prospective coaches out there? Herman isn't going anywhere. I just don't see the rush to use draft picks for a coach who is on nobody elses radar, without looking at the other options first.

New York fans are fickle. They want to win right now, no matter what, regardless of whether or not you have 4 QBs on the injured list and half your starters on IR.

Sorry, but I look at the things that Edwards has done with the Jets and then I immediately think about what would happen if Edwards would have had the offense/players that the Chiefs have, combined with his knowledge of defense.

I really dont see how you can forsee a catastrophic failure. Chiefs fans havent seen a playoff win in 13 years. I was fourteen years old the last time it happened. This guy has taken teams to the playoffs and won games recently.


As for the whole Martyball/Play not to lose stuff, it really doesnt matter in the end. I can never figure this stuff out.

Say Herm puts us in position for a realistic field goal try and Tynes blows the kick and the Chiefs lose. Its no different than if Al Saunders is the coach calls some dumb shit on 3rd and 1 with L.J. in the backfield and calls a pass or some other ill advised play that turns the ball over and we lose.

A loss is a loss. Doesnt really matter how you lost it. Ultimately, Edwards did have his team in position to win the game. That is what the coach's job is. Put the team in position to win. He did that. It just didnt happen. The team didnt execute. Al Saunders (who many want retained) is aggressive to a fault and is prone to overthink the simplest things. Hey, why not pound Johnson for one yard, get the first, then go back to passing? He goes for the dumbest stuff at the worst possible time.

Had the field goal in that Jets playoff game been good, and the Jets advance, there is no negative discussion about the coaching. But when the players cant execute and you lose, people have to have something to bitch about and point fingers.


Basicly the way I see it is that in KC, Herman Edwards has a helluva lot more to work with than he did with the Jets. If he was successful with the Jets, how could he not be successful here. Better team, better fans, better situation. Plus Im just sick of Al Saunders and his bullshit.

Hey, hey, hey now.

Why you talking all that sense? Don't you know one man's trash is another man's treasure... ;)

Simple fact of the matter is, that Carl doesn't have the balls to actually go out and search for a new coach. He is willing every time to turn to a friend or someone tied to the program of years past. He too deeply involved in the friends network theory. There are no real friends in a performance based business. Consider this, it's the easy way out without him having to do his actual job IMO. Which is is him providing the best product he possibly can. And I don't see him doing that . I see him jumping, and I mean literally jumping at Herman Edwards like their is a pack of teams after the guy. Nobody wants Herman. It's looks like his own team doesn't want him.

Why doesn't Carl interview all the prospective coaches out there? Herman isn't going anywhere. I just don't see the rush to use draft picks for a coach who is on nobody elses radar, without looking at the other options first.

Boy, you nailed it.

This is just pathetic. I hope Clark Hunt restores honor to this franchise.

How many games have you watched?

The Chiefs run on 3rd and 1, 3rd and 2, 4th and 1 over 90 percent of the time, if not all the time. I certainly can't think of an example where they passed it on 3rd and 1 off the top of my head.

Not really. The offensive talent in New York was misused horrible. Santana Moss was benched in favor of CURTIS CONWAY?

I know you dont mean to tell me that in the 5 years that Saunders has been here that you cant remember a single time where Saunders overlooked Holmes or Johnson in the backfield in favor of passing. Put the last 9 games or so aside, and look over the span of his time here. It happened all the f'in time.

Im aware you dont like Herm Edwards, but lets not play dumb and act like Saunders hasnt shoved his head up his ass on several occaisions, choosing to go all out aggressive over common sense shall we?

If I recall, Edwards wasnt the guy throwing the ball. Kinda hard to have success when your QB can only throw the ball 15 yards. Pennington is the biggest noodle arm in the league. Moss is a speed receiver, Conway was a possession receiver who was able to fight and go up for the ball with size and physical ability. Moss couldnt do that. It just looked to me like Herm was trying to do what he could to help the team. Why play a speed guy over a possession guy when your starting QB cant get him the ball, and you dont have a better QB?

Makes no sense.

Im so sick of Al Saunders' cutesy f'in playcalling that he cannot be shown the door fast enough. Saunders fans, if it werent for your savior's colossal playcalling f-ups against Philadelphia AT HOME, we wouldnt have surrendered the biggest comeback in franchise history. Hey, if the "genius" couldve mustered up more than 3 goddamn points against the superpower that is the mighty, night unstoppable Buffalo Bills :rolleyes: , we likely win that game too. Or how about if your savior knew when to attack the weak point of an opponent? San Diego had the #2 rush defense and the #29 pass defense, and Al does not call a downfield pass for the entire first half out in SD. Oh sure, someone went up to the box and helped him wrench his head from his ass, and then he tried to get it done in the second half, but by that time it was far too late.

So dont try to come in here pointing out playcalling flaws in another coaching candidate. If it werent for Al Saunders getting bored with his job and not doing what he was supposed to be doing, the Chiefs would have won at least one, if not all three of the aforementioned games and they would be in the playoffs right now. Al Saunders, dont let the door hit you where the good lord split you motherf***er. See your ass later.

Moreover, the last time Al Saunders was a head coach, it was a colossal disaster. In his first job as head coach, Herm Edwards took over a bad Jets team and took them to the playoffs 3/5 years. In Al Saunders first job as HC, he took over a bad Chargers team and made them worse.


Saunders did all the cutesy crap and was still able to provide a high quality product. Blaming Saunders for the Chiefs not being in the playoffs is overlooking the obvious. You ever think for once maybe, just maybe, the defense made a few stops in the Philly game, or the Bills with b/u QB they would be in the playoffs?

Saunders was the least of the Chiefs problems.

Hey. You even watch that game? Saunders was going 3 and out like it was what he was supposed to be doing. You cant put the defense on the field time after time with no rest and expect to win. Priest holmes had 65 yards rushing and 2 scores in the first QUARTER. Saunders elects to pass for the rest of the game.

Explain that one.


or the Bills with b/u QB they would be in the playoffs?

Against the Bills, the Defense allowed 14 points. Fourteen. If you cant win a game where your defense only allows 2 scores, the fault does NOT lie with the defense.

The first game of the season concerns me more than anything. The Jets came out against the Cheifs completely flat and unprepared. Sure, opening day at Arrowhead is tough on any visiting opponent, but the Jets just looked befuddled, listless and completely unprepared for an NFL game. That falls directly on the head coach.

Dude, you got 5 seasons worth of games to look over. 3rd and short with the result of the next play being a dropped/deflected/intercepted pass happened more times than I care to remember. If you can sit there and tell me you never saw it happen, youre either blind, refusing to acknowledge it, or retarded. You can decide which of the three you are. One huge example that cost the chiefs the game was the good ol Texans game on the 2 yard line. You got Holmes and the best line in the league, but he chose to pass. Holmes was SHREDDING the Texans that day. The pass got picked, returned for a score, and the game went down the toilet from there.

Are you one of these people that vilify Al Saunders while singing Gunther's praises? I sure hope not.

I havent mentioned Gunther a single time. Gunther calls defense, not offense. Its not his decision to run or pass on 3rd and short. Its not his decision to exclude Tony Gonzalez from the redzone offense. Its not his decision to alienate and anger the future of the Chiefs at Running Back. Its not his decision to call double fake reverse screens that never work.

Its his decision to go out and get a 51 million dollar cornerback in Patrick Surtain and then put Dexter Mcleon on the number one receiver. However, thats neither here nor there. Gun is not a candidate for HC, Al Saunders is. In a separate thread I mention how nice it would be if the rumor were true that Herm Edwards would likely bring Donnie Henderson with him to KC.

Well, neither of us were there at the time so neither of us know for sure, but it looks to me from my point of view, that the benching gave ol Santana some time to reflect on his lack of performance, and when given the chance, he took advantage. Its not uncommon for a coach to bench a guy and then his performance step up when given another shot.

(Gun benched Jared Allen at the beginning of the year for his screwup in the preseason, and then Allen had a great year.)

Why don't you admit you're wrong since you can't provide an example?

And as for the Santana Moss thing, you're wrong again.

As a Jets fan said:

Santana Moss starts the year buried behind Wayne Chrebet and Coles-replacement Curtis Conway. No amount of dropped balls gets Conway out of the starting lineup. Only an injury. Once he was finally given the chance, Moss explodes like we all hoped he would be when we traded up to draft him two years earlier, for 1100 yards & 10 TDís despite only starting 12 games. Numbers not to be approached again until traded away from Edwards.


Alot of people here didn't like Dick Vermeil, but I don't see them coming out in DROVES celebrating his departure.

Edwards is a lame-duck head coach. He's only being hired because he's one of Carl's buddies.

Indeed.

Again, as intense fans who scrutinize every play, we remember every mistake, magnify every flaw. You can do that with every team, even SB champs. That's why guys like Parcells and Belichick are never happy even when they win. They always see mistakes they want to correct.

Plus, the Chiefs' D greatly magnified the need for the O to be perfect. Not many teams face that kind of pressure.

Al screws up sometimes. I rail against him for stuff. But you must admit that if you step back and look at the big picture, he orchestrated one of the top offenses in the NFL for several seasons. He did his job better than most folks on the Chiefs.

There are plenty of examples. I gave you a perfect one from the Texans game. There have been plenty of times on third and short where the Chiefs passed the ball and had it go incomplete or get picked off, while I shake my head and wonder what he has against Priest Holmes and the O-line. If you do a bit of checking, Im sure you can find numerous threads with people questioning that very thing.

Whatever though, clearly you refuse to see it any other way, and thats fine.

Yeah, going to the playoffs three out of five years with two postseason wins with an average Jets team, anyone could do that. He's a real jackass, that Herman Edwards.... a real lame duck. :rolleyes:

Funny thing though, I dont remember Vermiel winning any playoff games the past 5 years.....what does that make him? Yet people wanted him to stay, and still yet many people want to keep his understudy Al Saunders for more of the same?

People are going to find more flaws in the Chiefs offense in one game than they did with Saunders for an entire season.

Who else did Carl interview? Saunders and maybe Butch Davis? He had to interview Saunders as a PR move, but other than that - Butch Davis? Shouldn't he have at least entertained a few coordinators? The good ole boy network is alive and well. I look forward to Kurt Schottenheimer being the head coach in 2010.

All I can say is - at least it isn't Martz, Haslett, Tice or Davis.

Prediction - If indeed Edwards is the next coach, KC fans will drink up Edwards' press conference like cool-aid at a Jim Jones event. Just like people did with Gunther when he was first named head coach. Lots of fire and brimstone, but when the game is on the line - watch out.

I can see Gunther staying but i dont see Saunders hanging around.
And to be honest i would like to see what Gunther could do IF he gets his own staff & KC tweaks some player personel on the D line.

But if Edwards dots his I and crosses his T so to speak, imo you could see a mass exodus of players who might have stayed onemore year if Saunders were HC.

There is NO ONE available we can hire where you can for a matter of fact say they WILL take us to the promised land. All you can do is look at the team we have, the personality and history of the coach, and make an assessment.

I think this is half of the problem with these arguments, I'm sitting here on the defensive trying to prove Herm is perfect, which he's not, while you get to be offensive and pick at flaws without offering any better solution.

2 things that endear me to Herm, despite his shortcomings:

1) Carl isn't stupid. He may be longing for the days of Marty, but he's not gonna let ANYBODY just scrap this offense when he knows full well it was THE missing ingredient during the Marty years.

2) Herm will likely bring Donnie Henderson, which means Gunther = gone.

I'm one of those odd people that donít mind seeing a few draft picks given up for a known commodity. Most drafted players, even those taken in the first round, never amount to anything above average in any reasonable amount of time. Yes I know there are some that exceptions but they are just that, exceptions. I and my brother just had a long phone discussion about Vince Young, who stands a good chance to be the number 1 overall pick if he goes, and we decided that he probably isnít going to do well in the professional game. So giving up a 2nd and 3rd round pick for a solid head coach is a good trade in my opinion. Iím just not sure Herm is that solid of a head coach.

I asked this of Parker in another thread, and I am asking both you and Parker here.

Why are you going to give Hermie five years, when he already has the nucleus of the team in place for a playoff run?

And why five years, when that nucleus is as old as they are on offense?

If he doesn't get it done in two years, then you might as well give him another five years from that point.

So, IMO, he either gets two years, or you have to give him seven.

Because 5 years is the historical norm (read the sig). Under many different circumstances -- rebuilding, stagnant, existing greatness, etc.

I would prefer he do it sooner rather than later. But it's not far-fetched to fail the first year or two with this aging offensive group, while a younger defense improves, have a year or two of down offense while reloading, then have it all come together in year 5.

It can be done if drafting and signing FAs smartly. Now, that involves Carl and a whole different argument.

THIRD AND ONE. I repeat. THIRD AND ONE.

The Chiefs RAN THE BALL the MAJORITY of the time on THIRD AND ONE.

That is a FACT. And you are WRONG.

Yeah, yeah gochiefs. Third and one. Nice caps by the way. Good emphasis. Despite what you care to think, your hero has screwed the Chiefs on drives with poor playcalling on 3rd and short, when the Chiefs could have run the ball easily for the first. This encompasses 3rd and 1, 3rd and 2, stuff like that. Once again, try to look past the past nine games of this season, and look at the overall span of his time here. I know its hard, because you have such a hardon for Al and Larry Johnson, but try. Try to see the big picture here.

Ive already acknowledged the fact that I made the mistake of only talking about THIRD AND ONE (like the caps?) situations, instead of discussing third and short. (3rd and 1-3), and the goal to go situations.

How about you move on and discuss what I meant to say, instead of kicking a dead horse and babbling on about just third and one? Likely because you would have to acknowledge the fact that your hero does in fact go Mike Martz in various situations when all he has to do is hand the ball off.

Or you could just keep in true gochiefs annoying form as displayed in the numerous, often lamented chronicles of Chiefsplanet lore and keep babbling on in caps about third and one well after the fact has been addressed. Makes no difference to me.

I'll say it again one last time, who knows, maybe it will get through your head this time, but I doubt it. I'll make annoying use of caps, you might understand it better this time.

Al Saunders has put up some impressive numbers as an OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR.

HOWEVER, over the years here, the Chiefs had the WORST defense in the league. Al HAD to know that he had to do everything he could to keep the offense on the field, and the horrible defense on the sideline.

But time after time, 3rd and short would roll around and instead of going to Holmes behind the best line in the game, he elected to throw, resulting in incomplete or intercepted passes and the defense takes the field.

You can deny this all you like, but anyone who has followed the Chiefs for Al's tenure here knows exactly what Im talking about. Im certain that you do as well, youre just acting like an ass.

Once again, if you dont see it, youre either blind, or refusing to acknowledge it because you have your little panties in a wad about Herm Edwards' likely hiring, or youre retarded. I have my thoughts as to which one you are. There's not a Chiefs fan alive that couldnt immediately think of a critical third down situation where Al called some dumbshit pass that got deflected, dropped by Johnny Morton, or got intercepted, when all they had to do to keep the drive going was run the damn ball.

Hell, sometimes it didnt matter what the situation was in the game, he would just pass the ball come hell or high water. The Chiefs could be running wild all day long and then inexplicably, Al would abandon the successful run game and go to the pass. It made no sense, and rarely worked.

Many articles were posted about this very thing, from CP members to people associated with the team. Even one from Bob Gretz, the biggest Yes man associated with the Chiefs ended a criticizing column about Al Saunders' playcalling with "Dont get cute. Run the football."

Its obvious that Al Saunders is prone to get cute and try some stupid, off the wall play. I dont like the way Mike Martz coached the Rams, and Ive seen glimpses of that in Al's playcalling. Therefore I do not want him as the head coach.

Once again, Herman Edwards first job as a head coach was with the Jets, and he made them competetive. Playoff team 3/5 years. Al Saunders' first head coaching job was with the Chargers, and he sucked.

Good coordinator doesnt mean good head coach. You need look no further than Norv Turner for proof of that. Turner has superbowl rings as a coordinator, and an abysmal record as a head coach. Edwards has shown that he can coach, get his teams to the playoffs, and put them in a position to win. Herm is taking over a team in much better shape than the Jets were in when he got there. I have no reason to believe that he would not be able to have success here.




Go to a Jets board. They are happy as hell for the most part.

Fantastic. Nothing better than getting something out of someone else's ignorance. Exclude this horrific year that the Jets had because of so damn many injuries. Herman Edwards is 35-29, fielding a playoff team in 3 out of four years. 2 playoff wins including one on the road, something the Chiefs havent sniffed for 13 years. Vermiel and his understudy had their shot. 5 years of super aggressive offense, 1 playoff appearance, 0 playoff wins. Obviously, a different approach is needed.

New York fans are harder to please than anyone. Most of them seem to have the mentality that this is like PS2 football. It doesnt matter who you have on the team, you should just be able to win. They will miss Herm Edwards when he is gone.

The fact that Jets fans want him gone, almost across the board, is proof enough that he's not the right man for the job.

Neither is Saunders.
That is just silly. Really. If that was the standard to which things should be measured, Trent would've been gone after his first season, Dante Hall would've had 11 billion TD's for someone else, and Larry Johnson would be running wild for the Miami Dolphins.

Things I have learned from this thread:

1. I agree with everything Tk13 has said and that is pretty much how I feel.

2. I apparently browse ChiefsPlanet too much as each time I watch "The Office" I think that guy is Tk13 and not the other way round'
ROFL Nope, that's me. I'm actually John Krasinski. I just sit here and post about the Chiefs and throw things at Dwight. Yeah, that's it.

Actually I probably do act a lot like Jim. I don't have the great facial expressions he does though. Nor a dirty old shirt that doesn't fit my arms.

I think Herm is a good coach, that team was really really bad when he got there, he's made the playoffs 3 times in his short tenure and has 2 playoff wins. I'll take him no problem

Bronco fans are already laughing at us for this pathetic move:

On behalf of the Denver Broncos fan base overseas I would like to thank Chiefs organization from the bottom of my heart for making my off season. If you have any problems getting this signed I'm sure the Broncos will throw in an 6th round pick. I know many fans would not mind pitching in a couple of dollars. If you Herm has any problems packing I'm sure the Jets fans are more than glad to help.

Please..Return to your regular off season rant. That is all.

4 years prior to Herm: 9-7, 12-4, 8-8, 9-7

Five years is a good sample size. One is not. Huge difference.

I am real mixed on getting Herm as a coach. I think he is a decent coach, but lacks in a couple of areas, time/clock management for one.

I would prefer to see a Fisher-type of coach, but are they truly out there. I don't know..

I'd take Al Saunders sooner than I'd take Germ Edwards.

Phew. Dodged a bullet.
