so where's the link to the other 50 free agents he signed that weren't worth a crap?

Doesn't the presence of Gannon on that list with the Raiders sorta balance it out ... even steven ... for Carl?

The thread title is pretty much tongue in cheek.

But getting rid of that choker Gannon was a great move. The Chiefs weren't going to run Chuckie's offence, which was custom made for rag-arm-Rich. If only Carl had gotten rid of the other choker on our roster at the same time.

No. Gannon wasn't a free agent and it was a Marty decision, IMO.

Those were GROB blunders. He told Dick and Carl those were the players he wanted.

I don't like Carl but I am not going to lay the mistakes of others at his feet.

It's an interesting list.

Reggie White, Deion Sanders, Curtis Martin, Shannon Sharpe, and to some extent Bryce Paup were all established, big-name stars when they were signed.

Keenan McCardell and Sam Adams were established veterans, though I wouldn't necessarily say they were stars.

Only Priest Holmes, Rich Gannon, and Stephen Davis were relative unknowns (or had Davis had a good season or two prior to going to Carolina?).


Even more interesting is the fact that they're calling these guys the greatest free-agent pickups of all time, but only 4 of them ended up winning a Super Bowl with their new team. That says a lot.

Well considering Holmes helped bring zero playoff wins to KC and Gannon was the primary factor in the Raiders making it to a Super Bowl I would have to say "not really".

Yeah but Gannon also had this one thing the chiefs didnt...i don't remember what it is called though. I'm pretty sure we used to have it in Kansas City..but I just can't remember the name of it. :banghead:
