Warpaint will have Herm Edwards as a guest on this week's podcast show. We're taking questions posted on our forum to him.

You can either view this as spam or as an opportunity to have your question read to Herm and answered. I don't really care how you choose to view it.

How does the play-calling work? What's the chain of command? Does the coordinator call the play down straight to the relay, or does it go through the HC?

Basically trying to get an idea if a particular bad play call falls squarely on the coord, or does the coach give his OK on them? when we do something like run on 3rd and 6, I'm curious if that's Herm or Solari.

I'm wondering if he can recruit an assistant, a kaishkunin, so he can perform a highly ritualized performance of the fine art of Seppuku.

I'd be willing to become a premium member and subscribe to a pay-per-view event if he is.

So Herm, how are things looking the last time you checked?

PS I'd volunteer to be his kaishkunin if he can't find one.

"Herm, why didnt you just take a knee on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd downs to ensure 3 points on the board in the first quarter???"

Has Herm posed the theory yet that any kick can be considered a good possesion i.e. a FG or a punt is a good possesion? He actually said thisl last year and we just couldn't believe it.

Herm. What's up with gettin all the Quarterbacks killed. It was three last year and 1 already this year ? Did you talk Roaf into retirement just so this could happen? Hell, Trent had a string of 81 consecutive games till you came along.

Phobia, when is the deadline for this?

Just wondering.

Ask this one Phil.

"When will the Chiefs coaching staff accept that hwy65 is not an NFL caliber OT and end that experiment?"

"when experiencing Oline problems and great pressure, why are the Chiefs so far, unable to refrain from 5-7 step drops, and switch to 3 step drops and quicker passes to protect the QB?"

"why is Kendrell Bell, who was vastly outplayed by Keyaron Fox the entire preseason, still starting at OLB"

Why in the name of Zeus's butthole did the Chiefs come out wearing white?

That was our question, and all the people around us....Just said on the radio that it was a first.

Thats covered shortbus.

Herm believed Heat would be an issue(often is in early sept in KC) and wanted Cinci in Black and the Chiefs in white to get that slight edge....he had to file weeks ahead of time for the Uni switch.

Turns out it wasn't hot, but if it had been 90degF....it might have been a good move.

Would you like me to step in as the offensive coordinator assistant? I sure as hell can tell you what down it is and how many yards we have to go.

My question for Germ Edwards:

If all the Chiefs fans in attandance at the next home game against the S.F. 49'ers chip in $5.00, will you go away? Hell, thats roughly $400K.... Please?

Sadly, we still have 3 to 4 more years of this nonsense before they will even think about dumping Herm.

All right, I got one here, and I hope that this will be answered.

Herm, you talked about the importance of Time Of Possession (TOP) during training camp and pre-season. What I'm trying to understand is, why are we even worrying about it, considering the fact that the Chiefs explosive offense generated a 32:09 TOP, which is 3rd in the NFL last year, behind Dallas and Denver?

I understand that to help the defensive side of the ball, but isn't there a reasoning that maybe it has nothing to do with the offense at all, but more of the lack of talent on some areas on the defensive side of the ball, primarily the D-line, other than Allen?

Guaranteed Herm will pass the buck.

only one important question: is Herm a premium member of WPI?

Who decided that Jordan Black would play RT with his failure to play the position at a proficient level last season? Are their plans to move the line around example Shields at RT, because he's played it before and did a good job of it when John Tait was injured

FYI..when herm was with the Jets..in crucial situations(red zone)the plays would have to go from the O/C to herm before the play would be called..henceforth all the confusion in critical situations..
dont know how it's set up with the Chiefs..

He is, but we comped him. He wanted to pay but Nick wouldn't let him. I say let him pay.

Herm never heard of the term 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it.' The problem with the Chiefs was not the offense, but he came in here and tinkered with it, removing all effectiveness. I place the entire blame for the play calling on Herm because Solari is calling the game that Herm wants him to. Damn I wish we had taken the obvious step and made Saunders the HC.

Say Phil, when you talk to Herm, ask him if he needs an OT. If so, tell him to give me a call.

Wow. I can't believe Herm actually cared enough about something like that. One would think he's got better things to do than surf some stupid message board.

Herm is it possible you could trade yourself back to the Jets for a player/coach/waterboy to be named later?
