A friend of mine at Fox Sports pointed me to this website, which is his favorite sports parody site. It's called "The Brushback" and the lead story today is about Herm Edward promising to do for the Chiefs what he did for the Jets...win 47% of his games.

Apologies if this has been posted before. I did a search (to make Skip happy)...

I'll take a 47% winning percentage in exchange for 2 playoff wins.

Gunther's winning percentage was 50%. Vermeil's was a stunning 55%.

The problem with the term 'continued mediocrity' is that it assumes we've reached mediocrity yet.

Herm Edwards hardly took over a team in chaos and turned it into a contender. Al Groh was 9-7 before Herm took ever and I think they were sitting at 9-4 at one point, and in first place.

Herm Edwards may end up doing well here, but I just don't see where all these assumptions that he is a great coach are coming from.

Everyone always is bashing Carl Peterson on here, but when it is time to drink the Kool-Aid, most drink it. I think there should be a good amount of skepticism regarding this hire.

Um, we are not at mediocre. We are at pathetic. 1 playoff appearance in the last 8 years. I can't believe people actually thought the career .500 coach Vickie D would be good for us - when he just finished the plunge into patheticness.

The next step is mediocre.

My concerns about Herm are Clock Management and his attention to detail along those lines and how he handled Lamont Jordon. I think it's fair to say he has a similar situation in the Holmes/Johnson combo to the Jordan/Martin situation. Jordan did a fine job in Oakland and now the Jets are hurting a bit at RB IMO.

Any one that has been around here knows that I was never happy that Dick was hired.

But the fact is, he won more games that he lost as HC in KC.
We, as fans of the team, might see that as pathetic, but a winning percentage at about a 55% is the very definition of mediocre.

Isn't that exactly what this team needs?

I don't know if Edwards is a "great" coach. But I do feel like he was a good fit for the situation this team is in. If we want to win with our current players, I don't think we can afford the growing pains of someone with no HC experience.

I don't think I need to be any more skeptical of the Edwards hire than I would the hiring of anyone else. He has a respectable resume, with the only real mark against him coming in a year that his team was decimated by injuries.

Your not 100% correct. Herm has no concept of clock management.

The only other thing I would say is, if all we need is a guy to take our current team and go from there then why not Hire Mike Sherman.....he wouldnt have cost us a 4th rounder.

I don't think anyone here thinks Herm is a great coach. Even The Bad Guy, who was supporting the Herm choice from early on, has said he merely thinks Herm was the best available coach.

I also think hardly anyone is drinking the Kool-Aid. Carl seems to be by far the most enthusiastic of the hire; pretty much everyone here at best has simply resigned themselves to the fact that Carl isn't going anywhere for four more years and they're going to have to live with his decisions. They're hoping to make the best of it. I think there's a lot of skepticism of this hire, but I also think the absolutely most futile thing you can do is pull a gochiefs and keep railing against it.

What, you're gonna hold your breath for four years to protest? Why not just take four years off from being a fan until it all blows over? I know that sounds like a pissy "go find another team/you're not a REAL fan" line, but that's pretty much where the logic leads. Declaring war on a guy who hasn't coached a single game yet is pathetic. If you're so convinced he's a disaster, then why bother following the team? So you can hang around and post "I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!" threads after every loss? That's cranking the annoying meter up to 11.

Herm Edwards is the coach. Get over it. If he fails, we'll flame his ass just like we do every other Chiefs underachiever. But let's at least give him a chance to prove himself, one way or the other. I mean, what other choice do we have?

He was going to be fired. The New Yorkers for the most part wanted him gone. He is probably the only head coach never to have been a coordinator. He doesn't seem to be a very honest guy.

Those are a few legitimate red flags, in my opinion. I think the best case scenario is that he is "Vermeil lite" -- able to create the family atmosphere, but without the knowledge of offense Vermeil had.

At least the Skins play defense. Nothing pisses me off more than to see the Chiefs breakdown so much defensively during a football game. Its coming to a point to where every bad defensive team (at any level) I see out on a field, I ask myself whether that team is really the Kansas City Chiefs.

That's just plain stupid. He hired a coach, Dick Curl, as his clock manager. He trusted him, just as a head coach should do. Some here think it bit him in the ass. I disagree.

All this "losing record" stuff about Herm is pure BS! How many games would ANY coach in this league win with a 3rd string RB and 4th string QB?!! Does anyone here think that James Killian and Dee Brown (or better yet, Ronnie Cruz) would have won more than 4 games for the Chiefs this year? How ridiculous that so many people seem to forget that Edwards guided his team to the playoffs 3 out of 4 seasons and was one bad kicker from the AFC Championship game in 2005!

If Edwards had his full compliment of offensive and defensive players (i.e. starting QB, starting RB, O-Line, etc.) this past season and still only won 4 games, there would be cause for concern about his coaching ability. But that certainly wasn't the case.

I think there are plenty of posters here guilty of bitching to just bitch. Either that or they don't know jacksh*t about NFL as a whole and only follow the Chiefs.

Thats kind of a BS statement. Almost every replacement coach this season has been a coordinator and we can not know how that's going to pan out. Sure we can all debate that we needed a proven commodity yadda yadda, I challenge that. Why did we need an experianced coach, because we have a veteran team? Thats a weak reason IMO.

FTR, no I was not on the Herm Edwards ( for sensitve folks ) bandwagon, I think he was laid back ( muck like DV ) and managed the clock poorly. I do think he had enough talent in NY to win and didn't.

Herm's coaching style is similar to DV's, yes.

Herm's personality is NOTHING like DV's. Herm will ****ing rip you a new a$$hole, as a player.

This is the main reason I liked the hire: he doesn't put up with stupid bull$#it.

DV didn't get it done here, I understand and agree, but I loved the way DV delegated authority. He allowed his coordinators to coordinate without sticking his fingers in everthing. I think that's the best thing a coach can do.

You'll be surprised how quick 4 years passes.

JR is in a transition period right now and IMHO the only reason Carl was retained was due to his experience and time with the KC organization.

I fully expect JR to be much more hands on as an owner. And no matter the next GM he'll be light years from Peterson. Has to be.

Blame anyone you want, it doesnt happen in New England, Carolina or Seattle just to name a few quality teams that don't have a problem with the clock. That is Herms and Herms alone.

I am not anti Herm Edwards. There are things I don't like about the hire. I don't like that we didnt spend enough time IMO talking to coordinators or even conteplating one. I don't like that we gave a draft pick for a guy that would have been fired and arguably might not have been our best option to begin with. I don't like the fact that he's a Carl guy that apparently is Vermielesk which I was never a big fan of to begin with. I want someone that kicks these guys in the ass. Now go ahead and fire away that that hasnt helped us on defense, but there is no denying that all of the remaining coaches in the playoffs command respect from their players with crying every damn time a camera is in their face....GOD I hated that about Vermeil.

What, 2 or 3 times in 5 years? So I'm assuming, since his record was so good for 3 of those years and they reached the playoffs each time, that you saw a winning football team. And in how many of those games you watched did Herm have a "clock management problem"? Please detail those experiences.

I think that people here read headline "Herm has no clock management skills" and assume that it's 100% true. And if that's the case, the guy has to be, without a doubt, the BEST FOOTBALL COACH OF ALL TIME! Why? Because it would be absolutely impossible for his teams to have played as well as they've played and reached the playoffs 3 times with such poor clock management skills.

This is getting to be re-goddamn-diculous.

Mike Heimerdinger was receivers coach for the Broncos during the Super Bowl championship run. He left to become OC for the Titans, then the Jets, and is rumored to be returning to the Broncos once Kubiak takes over in Houston.

As a Shanahan disciple, Heimerdinger has always run a variant of the WCO. He's tailored it to the personnel of each team--he had McNair go downfield more, this year w/ the Jets he was screwed by all the injuries.

I'll take a ~.500 coach as long as it reads something like this:

Yr1 2-12
Yr2 4-14
Yr3 8-8
Yr4 19-0
