I know that not a lot of people care for Carl Peterson. I believe his contract expires at the end of this season. However, I also understand Pro-Football is in fact a form of entertainment. So that being said it is my opinion that as long as home games are sell outs, why would Lamar Hunt NOT renew Carls contract. After all, it is a business, so as long as the butts are in the seats Carl will be with us until HE decides to give it up. :banghead:

I gave up on the 5 year plan 6 years ago. :cuss:

I could be wrong, but I thought Carl signed up for another five year plan earlier this year.

Please don't commit suicide until someone confirms that, though.

I believe he has 4 years left, including this season. He's said that this will be his last contract.

I fear Terry Bradaway.

His current contract length is the same as Herm's.

As far as his eventual replacement. We have been through this discussion and the consensus was that Scott Pioli of New England was the best candidate. Do a search I'm sure you'll find those threads.

We should steal a GM from the Ravens or the Bears so we can assemble a defense like they have.

Truthfully Marty S.. would be a good choice..thats how he got into coaching..picking talent and informing NFL teams before the draft....

How about Herm Edwards? If he had anything to do with last year's draft I want him promoted to GM after his coaching contract expires.

This is probably old info, but one of my Red Coater friends has been saying all along that Clark Hunt will take take over as Owner/GM once Lamar is gone. Not sure if I agree or not, I'd rather find someone who's a great evaluator of talent. IMO, Clark doesn't have the credentials at this point. I'm ready for Carl to be gone. Sure, we could do much worse than King Carl, but then again, I don't think we can do any better either.

I doubt Clark will become GM, he might take over the CEO and President role but I doubt the GM. Al Davis and Jerry Jones are the only owners who I know do that and I seriousally doubt Clark will do it.

I agree, but I'm simply repeating what I've heard. Clark being the CEO and/or President would be fine because the chances of the Chiefs staying in KC would be greatly increased IMO. :)

Doesn't matter how faithful he is. He's locked into another 35 years here.

We offer him full control of the draft, FA and player development. Coaches will go along with his choices considering his track record.

We offer him $20 million a year(supposely King Carls yearly take from Hunt enterprises)

He gets out from under his father in laws shadow and writes his own success story.

Has built in rabid fan base ready for anyone not named King Carl.

Media would be friendly.

7th best ranked school in the U.S.(Lees Summit) for his young GM's.

Time for a total douching people... Hopefully Clark is man enough to run the Chiefs and go out, get HIS own GM and let that GM get a NFL coach...

**** NO MARTHA OR HERM!

Even after Carl steps down he will handpick our next GM.
So I'm not sure him stepping down will matter as much as we think it will.

Carl is the new Jack Steadman folks.

Herm can pick players well enough to keep them on the roster, he just can't coach worth a shit, so probably Herm if he isn't fired before then, would be what I "think" happens.

I'd be willing to bet the decision is already made.

I'm fully expecting Bill Kuharich to take Peterson's place, and if not him, then Denny Thum.

No way they go outside the organization.

It will be split into two jobs - President will go to Thum and Football Operations to Kuharich.

Denny Thum though is one of the best football business executives in the game and he has been here long before Peterson was around, if he is president that doesnt bother me to much. Kuharich isnt the most sexy pick for a GM but I think he would do a good job - I know he gets nailed for the Ricky Williams deal but I think that was more Dikta and Benson's doing than his.

4 year deals for both, starting in 2006.

Both deals will expire after the 2009 season.

OH FUGGIN COOL!!!!!!!!!:evil:

EDIT Oh, wait, I was correct then, in a way. I meant 2010 as in April 2010 when the new season technically starts. That would be the end of the 2009 season.

Of course, that's assuming if they make it out after this season. If the Chiefs go 4-12 again, there'll be alot of pressure by the fans towards Clark to make that change.
