View Full Version : Green Should Retire

Trent Green began his Chiefs’ career listening to the sound of boos – his 24-interception season in 2001 didn’t sit well with most fans.

It seems he will end his career in the same fashion, but this time the boos don’t emanate from the stands at Arrowhead Stadium. They echo in the hearts and minds of the fans who listened to Green rip the Chiefs on the radio last Friday.

Where did it all go wrong? You can blame Chiefs President Carl Peterson for being too hard-headed in negotiations with the Miami Dolphins. You can blame the Dolphins for giving Peterson a taste of his own medicine. Finally, you can blame Green for, well, pretty much blaming everyone except himself.

None of this really matters. Green is done in Kansas City. Apparently he’s got his heart set on South Florida as his next playing destination.

If you ask me, he ought to scope the place out as his retirement home.

Here’s the ugly truth no one has really been willing to accept so far – not the Chiefs (they want a draft pick), not the Dolphins (they want Green, sort of) and certainly not Green, who is anything but a quitter.

Trent Green should retire.

The writing was on the wall at the end of last season. It was evident when Green threw horrible, forced interceptions against the Baltimore Ravens and even more evident when he started tossing them right to linebackers and corners against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Green’s arm, what little he ever had, is gone. At 37, his legs have been gone for quite some time. And should he take another knock on the noggin, who knows where his brain might end up.

No one really wants Green. Despite Carl’s mushy speeches about Green being KC’s starting quarterback if the season started tomorrow, the Chiefs are more committed to second-year man Brodie Croyle who, according to Green himself, will receive 80 percent of the reps in training camp this year.

The Dolphins? Oh yeah, they’re practically lusting after Green. They’re so hot for him they offered up a whopping seventh-round pick in exchange for his services. When Peterson tried to get a fourth, they sat on their hands.

Evidently Cam Cameron and Terry Shea, for all their connections with their star pupil, would rather have a middle-round draft pick. How much do they really want him?

We’ll find out in a few months if they cave on their offer before training camp begins. If they stick with Cleo Lemon, Green might as well hang them up.

But let’s assume for a moment Miami ponies up Carl’s fourth-rounder and Green packs his bags for the land of hurricanes (another good reason to retire, by the way, as if Miami itself wasn’t a bad enough place to live). Retirement still might be Green’s best option.

Look at the Dolphins’ offensive line. Their best offensive tackle (Damion McIntosh) bolted to Kansas City this offseason. L.J. Shelton looks to be the odds-on-favorite to replace him in Miami, a risky proposition for Green considering Shelton started 11 games last season at right guard.

Didn’t Green just finish a season in which he played the role of a bowling pin for defenders rolling down Jordan Black alley? Why go to another team featuring another converted guard protecting your blindside?

It’s not just Shelton, either. That entire offensive line is easily worse than the one Green suffered behind in Kansas City last season. Sure, Joey Harrington was only sacked 15 times, but he’s one of those guys who would rather throw interceptions than get hit.

Green? He holds the ball, and holds it longer than he should. He always has. Look at what happened to Daunte Culpepper behind that Miami line last year – 21 sacks in four games.

For his own health, Green should avoid Miami. It’s too bad he wouldn’t accept Cleveland as a potential destination. With Joe Thomas playing Willie Roaf, Green might’ve looked halfway decent throwing to Kellen Winslow and Braylon Edwards.

But back to Miami. The offensive line might be the least of Green’s worries. 2001 was no picnic as we pointed out at the onset of this column – mostly due to the new offensive system the Chiefs were installing. Everyone was on the same page – the wrong one, while Green tried to teach everyone how to read.

In Miami, the same thing is happening at this very moment. Meanwhile, the Dolphins dumped their most dependable receiver this offseason (Wes Welker). Someone’s got to show the remaining fish (Marty Booker and Chris Chambers) how to swim.

Obviously the Dolphins want Green around to expedite this process. And given the fact that they drafted former BYU standout John Beck in the second round of this year’s NFL draft, clearly they’ve already handpicked their quarterback of the future.

So, Green goes to Miami, gets clobbered behind a patchwork offensive line, endures a season that quite possibly might be comparable to his worst, and is most likely cast aside for a younger, more talented quarterback in a year or two – or, even worse, is forced out due to another concussion or knee injury.

What’s the point?

Carl has rolled the dice Miami will poney up a conditional pick. I'm afraid GC is right. their O-line is horrible.

so Green plays bad, partially due to their line, gets banged again hard. doesn't finish season....

We might get a conditional 6-7th rounder in 2008.

Miami surprises everyone and finishes above .500 and we get a 4-5th?

By presenting this outlandish, silly critique that Carl only cares about ticket sales and isn't even trying to win, you set back the well reasoned anti-Carl movement that want to get a new general manager for perfectly legitimate reasons.

Any idiot knows that Carl is trying to win a super bowl. If he only cares about money, how much more money would the team make if the won the Super Bowl? "Carl doesn't care about winning" is moronic.

The problem is not that he doesn't try, it's that he has failed over and over.

But let’s assume for a moment Miami ponies up Carl’s fourth-rounder and Green packs his bags for the land of hurricanes (another good reason to retire, by the way, as if Miami itself wasn’t a bad enough place to live).

Yeah... year round sunshine, pristine beaches, the most gorgeous women in the entire country, and no state income tax - make Miami a HORRIBLE place to live. Like Green can't afford to stay out of the Dade county slums... and hiring someone to board-up his windows once every other year is a hardship. LOL

Cow town sensibilities. :)

Look at the Dolphins’ offensive line. Their best offensive tackle (Damion McIntosh) bolted to Kansas City this offseason.

LMAO!!! Man this is too rich.... Damion McIntosh was nowhere near our best tackle last season - and he received a heck of a lot less attention from the Dolphins in free agency than Trent Green is getting from them now. Very quietly, former first round draft pick Vernon Carey had a near pro-bowl level effort at RT in 2006 - and will be moved to LT. He was doing a fine job at LT in preseason in 2005... but was moved to RT when Saban's gamble on Stockar McDougal blew up, and McIntosh could only play LT.

L.J. Shelton looks to be the odds-on-favorite to replace him in Miami, a risky proposition for Green considering Shelton started 11 games last season at right guard.

Shelton MIGHT be our RT... a position he should be a good fit in, given his massive size - and the fact that he will see far fewer speed rushers at that position. Shelton had a very good year at RG last season... but he's always been a tackle, and its time to quit trying to make him be what he isn't (a LT), and see how good he can be at RT (which IMHO he should have been playing all along).

Why go to another team featuring another converted guard protecting your blindside?

Since when is Green left handed??? Beyond that... Shelton has ALWAYS been a tackle, and only played G last year because Miami had injuries to 6 different players at the Guard position last year.

It’s not just Shelton, either. That entire offensive line is easily worse than the one Green suffered behind in Kansas City last season.

I think you are just F.O.S. my friend. LOL Hudson Houck is perhaps the best O-Line coach in the business... and while he hasn't had an abundance of talent to work with - Miami's offensive line has been well above average both years of Houck's term, and this years version should be his best yet. The biggest problem in Miami last season (and every season since 2000) was at QB... and that problem was exacerbated by having a moron OC (Mike Mularky) trying to run an offense that wasn't his own (Scott Linehan's). Saban should have been fired the moment he conceived of that offensive strategy.

Sure, Joey Harrington was only sacked 15 times, but he’s one of those guys who would rather throw interceptions than get hit.

Barbara Streisand! Harrington is NOT a guy who would rather throw interceptions than get hit... he's one of those guys that couldn't hit the same place twice if he was dropping a ball from a distance of 2 inches over the target. Joey had 15 INT's last season.... but honestly I can't remember him being really pressured on ANY! I can remember several where he threw 8 yard passes (about the limit of Harrington's range where he can still get the ball within 3 yards of the target) about 212 MPH and the resultant ricochet was intercepted. Joey wasn't trying to avoid getting hit... he's just an inaccurate QB.

Green? He holds the ball, and holds it longer than he should. He always has. Look at what happened to Daunte Culpepper behind that Miami line last year – 21 sacks in four games.

I haven't watched Trent Green nearly as much as you guys have... but on the occasions I have, he certainly didn't EVEN compare to the amount of time Daunte Culpepper holds the ball IMO. Culpepper was used to running around back there for days and buying time to throw the ball... and he simply could not move last season. Period. Even someone with your obvious agenda has to admit that Culpepper getting sacked 21 times in 4 games... and Harrington 15 in the other 12 doesn't exactly implicate the offensive line as the biggest culprit.

For his own health, Green should avoid Miami. It’s too bad he wouldn’t accept Cleveland as a potential destination. With Joe Thomas playing Willie Roaf, Green might’ve looked halfway decent throwing to Kellen Winslow and Braylon Edwards.

You take the cake my friend. LOL Miami's O-Line sucks according to you... but the Browns taking Joe Thomas in this years draft is going to fix EVERYTHING with their O-Line which surrendered 54 sacks last year?!?!?!?! Come on!! Poor old Charlie Frye LOST 262 yards in sacks last season... and Charlie IS mobile! LMFAO!!!

What’s the point?

The point is that it's TRENT GREEN's career.... not Chiefs fans, and I think it's pretty sad that fans would rather shove the guy into retirement - than feel like they didn't get enough in trade for him. Really sad.

The reason why these 'columns' induce a chuckle from me is that they basically are nothing more than rants on a message board.

GoChiefs doesn't have any connection to the team. He doesn't attend press conferences, he doesn't sit in the press box, he doesn't ask the players questions or know any more than the rest of us do. He regurgitates quotes from the AP and puts together basically a post like you'd see on CP or anyplace else.

Then he comes over here with a link to his prestigious "magazine", and once in a while will allude to "I get paid to do this".

If you're just joe somebody in your parents' basement 1000 miles from Arrowhead, your only skill is trying to imitate Whitlock's style, and you don't have any sporting or journalistic expertise at all... why come with that? Why make yourself out like some coveted, expert sports reporter who is making a living beating trails around Arrowhead?

It's the same reason I chuckle whenever I see Nick Athan on TV. Jack Harry, the clueless rube, thinks that Nick descended from Mount Olympus and would lick the sweat rolling off his sack under the TV lights in hopes that it contained some salty morsel of information. (Or nicotine) You can't respect someone who passes themselves off as something they aren't.

Hey wockebauss...do you think Miami will pony up the 4th-round pick?

I don't think so GoChiefs. I think if they were going to, they would have already done it.

In Green interview the other day the host asked him if he felt like he was in the middle of a pissing match between Mueller/Peterson... and Green said maybe. I don't think there is a history between those two (and from where I'm sitting the Surtain thing turned out fairly even so far)... I honestly think it's two guys with a serious disagreement over the value of a player.

Mueller and the Dolphins honestly think a 37 year old Trent Green wasn't worth more than a 6th round pick... and Peterson thinks he worth a 4th. I just don't think this thing gets solved in any way quickly. Mueller just WILL NOT move off a value once he's assigned one to a player (and I speak with having dealt with Mueller on both ends... he dealt Ricky Williams to us from the Saints several years ago) - and Carl Peterson strikes me the same way.

Whats worse, I think the Dolphins feel like their motivation to send any pick for Green is melting away with the passing days. Since they know Green wants to be in Miami (has refused to talk/negotiate with any other team)... and Green has already missed two of the teams mini-camps - I'm starting to get the feeling Mueller won't trade anything for him on the chance he'll get cut. While some fans here seem to think the closer to the season we get the higher Trent's value is to the Dolphins... I think the Dolphins feel the exact opposite (why spend a pick since he can't be here early?).

Whats plan B you ask??? I'm sure you'll giggle here... but I think it may in fact be Cleo Lemon. Cameron praised him to high heavens during this last mini-camp... and I've read several scout opinions recently which suggest they feel like Lemon can and will develop into a starting NFL QB. I wish Saban would have let Lemon play more last season (especially after it became clear Joey Harrington wasn't some diamond who was just covered in Detroit dirt for 4 years). Lemon played well last year, and the fact he had Miami within 5 points of the World Champion Indianapolis Colts in the last game of the year opened a few eyes.

Beyond that, there's the ever healthier Culpepper... and a new wildcard in 2nd rounder John Beck from BYU. I really like what I've researched on Beck.... but despite his maturity, I'm a firm believer in giving a rookie QB at least one year to watch and learn.

In any case... here we sit. I'm not sure this thing can be worked out at this point.

So Miami's going to start the season with Cleo Lemon? Because I can tell you right now, there's no way Carl releases Trent Green.

What I don't understand is why the Dolphins signed Joey Porter if they didn't intend to compete now. They're sending mixed signals.

Bull. He'll release him in final cuts rather than pay the big paycheck.

At that time his value to any team will be pretty low considering he hasn't gone through their camp, but Miami will pick him up anyway considering all their staff and likely similar terminology/playbook.

If I had to bet right now (given that Green won't be there)... my guess would be Lemon.

If Culpepper is healthy he could surprise though.

Here's a few quotes from draft "expert" Russ Lande regarding the Dolphins QB situation (note - he's a big fan of John Beck):

http://www.phins.com/draft-07/russ_post_interview.html

Phins.com: Does the holdup for acquiring Trent Green help Culpepper buy time to show what he can possibly do?

Russ: I think so, and I also think with the timetable it'd give Beck a chance. He's going to be the only real guy to throw the ball. Cleo Lemon is nice and all but when they get to see Beck throw, they may make the decision right there that they may not even want Trent Green. When they finally get to see him throw in personal, he's a veteran guy in terms on coming out of college. He'll be 26, so maturity's not an issue. Smarts is not an issue. They could say, "Look, we don't need Trent Green. Beck can be our starting quarterback."

Phins.com: On Draft Day, every prospect gets a "highlight film" where they all look really good. For once wouldn't you like to see a film showing how prospects against their toughest opponents? A possible, "lowlight film" of sorts?

Russ: Beck has done well against almost every opponent he's gone against. He's a remarkably good quarterback.

Phins.com: And Quinn?

Russ: Well, just about any time you get guys in his face he struggled and that was a big issue. Quarterbacks who've struggled with pressure around them usually don't succeed in the NFL. That's definitely a concern.

Phins.com: Cameron mentioned that an accurate quarterback can be taught to be more accurate but that he has yet to have any luck trying to teach an inaccurate quarterback to be accurate.

Russ: That's very true. That's very, very true. I've never seen inaccurate quarterbacks become accurate in the NFL.

Phins.com: "Make all the throws" is a phrase you didn't hear as far as this year's quarterback draft.

Russ: I don't think you heard it because there really weren't any guys who were highly rated with a very weak arm. There was nobody that you really had that issue with because nobody also that had a questionable arm that played in an offense that didn't let you show it. Kevin Kolb played in a terrible offense for showing your arm, but even on the one throw a game, you saw he had a rocket for an arm whereas every other quarterback, Beck, Quinn, Russell, they all had to make all the throws regularly so they showed that they had the arm. I really think Beck is very similar to Brees and very similar to Bulger and that's why I think he'll be perfect for Cam Cameron in my opinion. He'll put up some big numbers whether it's this year or a year from now when he gets the starting job.

Cam Cameron, I think that people have to remember - this guy knows how to tailor an offense around his players. He won't force his players into his offense, so he's going to make it work around Beck's strengths or whoever is the quarterback. Also, don't forget that if Culpepper does shows up healthy and goes through the training camp and everything, don't be shocked if he comes in and has a good year as a starter because Cameron is very good at molding the offense around the players, not forcing the players into his offense. He's really a good coach that way. Very few do that and he does an outstanding job at it.

You feel for Culpepper because he's a good guy. He's not a bad guy at all. He gets a little bad rep from the media but he is actually a very decent person and a hard working guy. So I think when he gets his chance and he's healthy again whether it's Miami or somewhere else I really do believe he really will become a good quarterback again in the NFL.

Interesting stuff....poor Green. Nobody really wants the guy.

I don't know that that is the case... I think Mueller/Cameron would still like to sign Green, but I just can't see them trading more than a 6th (maybe 5th) rounder for him. Mueller and Peterson may be the two most stubborn GM's in the entire league... and I honestly can't see any neat and friendly way this whole issue can be completed.

You have to keep in mind that the recent history of trading for QB's in Miami is also working against a deal. A 2nd for AJ Feeley by Wannstedt/Speilman.... A 2nd for Daunte Culpepper by Saban, and a 5th for Joey Harrington also by Saban. Mueller and Cameron have made every effort this year to appear different from the recently departed Nick Saban regime. Saban was criticized by the local media for his severe restrictions regarding the press... Mueller/Cameron rolled out a new relaxed media policy. Wannstedt and Saban refused to draft a QB in Miami for YEARS... Mueller/Cameron personally worked out every QB in this draft and selected John Beck with their 2nd rounder.

As much as I think Cameron would like to have Green in Miami.... I think he and Mueller will be VERY conscious of not appearing to over-pay for another QB trade acquisition.

It ain't fair, and it ain't right.... but it is what it is.

I feel bad for Green really... caught between a rock and hard place.

I'd have to think every time the Chiefs are in a competitive situation for signing a free agent though.... an opposing team is going to start singing to the player about how the Chiefs ruined the end of Trent Green's career after Green played his guts out for them for 6 years.

As many times as you hear free agents talking about how "the money" or contract was the same at both places he visited... and such-and-such just felt like a better situation for him - you have to keep in mind how your team is perceived around the league.

Carl actually treated Green too well, he gave him too much respect. He should not have turned him loose on his own to do the negotiating. Secondly, before you fill a bathtub full of tears for Trent Green, he probably has around 30 million of the Chiefs payroll in his bank account.

Carl actually treated Green too well, he gave him too much respect. He should not have turned him loose on his own to do the negotiating.

Having just seen the Joey Harrington situation play out the previous year, I made this same point to several Chiefs fans when it became clear that the only holdup to a deal was compensation between the teams. I was told that Green and Peterson had a special relationship... and that Green just wasn't the kind of guy who would screw over the Chiefs.... and that Green wanted to retire in KC... and that basically I was WRONG on the issue (if not entirely stupid).

If your not really eager and willing to pay a contract on a guy your trying to trade... you should NEVER let that player talk with another team until trade compensation is worked out between the teams. Otherwise you end up like this situation (and Joey Harrington last year). I was shocked that an experienced GM like Peterson (having just seen Matt Millen get burned the previous season in the same manner) let this happen.

Secondly, before you fill a bathtub full of tears for Trent Green, he probably has around 30 million of the Chiefs payroll in his bank account.

So? Is 30 million dollars going to buy Trent Green another year or two worth of health and stamina to play professional football, when/if the Chiefs decide they'll let his career continue?? Was Trent Green not worth the money he's earned from the Chiefs over the last 6 years??? Did he fail to perform in some manner that hurt the team, yet didn't allow the Chiefs to waive/cut him - as they can do to any player under contract at any time????

I could see your argument if we're talking about Ryan Leaf here... where a guy just basically stole 10+ million from a team, but thats not Trent Green is it?

Green thinks he has a year or two left as a starter, and he wants to go somewhere where he'll get that opportunity. For the Chiefs to deny a 37 year old veteran that opportunity is pretty harsh IMHO. They are basically dictating to the player how his career in this league will end.

Even though I would have hated it personally, if Dan Marino had wanted to go play for Minnesota for a year or two at the end of his career.... I was very proud of the Dolphins organization which told Dan that if he had the opportunity, and wanted to go play for the Vikings - that they would release him. Classy organization... enough so that Marino decided he'd rather retire a Dolphin.

Again... just my opinion.

I have no argument that Trent didn't earn his money, however I take exception with the arguement that the team owes him anything or did him wrong in any way. They paid him very well, gave up a lot for him and surrounded him with the best environment they could.
Trent really shit in his nest with that interview last week, IMO. He had already messed it up pretty bad by refusing to negotiate with other teams.

So in the end, he is just another spoiled athlete with a lot of money. He no longer wears a Super Man's cape, like the image he projected.

Oh, and the Dan Marino comparison is not the same IMO. Trent played for several teams, he was not a team lifer like Marino. Tony G. would probably be the closest on the Chiefs to fitting that mold, you saw how Carl treated him.

Yeah... I was shocked. In fact I believed for a long while that the Dolphins and Chiefs DID have an agreement in place, and then Peterson backed out of it when he saw the bounty that Schaub brought Atlanta in trade.

They haven't yet. But if they plan on forcing him to ride the pine in KC over the difference between a 4th and 6th round draft pick... I can't see how you justify it. IMHO thats nothing but ego and spite. As you said... what goes around, comes around.

Trent really shit in his nest with that interview last week, IMO. He had already messed it up pretty bad by refusing to negotiate with other teams.

I thought he was prety reasonable in comparison to other guys I've heard spout off about their situations. He seemed respectful of Peterson, the team, and of fans... and just seemed to me to want to explain to the fans what his thinking was.

As for refusing to negotiate with other teams... he isn't doing anything any other player in the league would: just exerting what little control he has over the situation to obtain the outcome he wants. How can you blame a guy that doesn't want to spend the last year or two of his career in a meat grinder like Detroit or Cleveland playing out the string?

So in the end, he is just another spoiled athlete with a lot of money. He no longer wears a Super Man's cape, like the image he projected.

You call a guy spoiled because he isn't ready to be a backup, and doesn't want to end his career carrying a clipboard? Thats rough dude. If thats spoiled... what do you call players like Ray Lewis, Michael Vick, and Terrel Owens???

1.) I didn't mean it as a direct comparison. In fact, a Cheifs fan made the comparison first to me... and while I agree its not the exact situation - its pretty similar.

Whoever wrote that POS article is nuts. Green would give up the remainder of his pro-rated signing bonus if he were to retire. No way he is going to do that especially when he feels he can still play. I find it funny that the Chiefs homers are so self delusional about this whole issue. I sure would not give up millions to avoid fan reaction, especially if it allowed me to screw Carl Peterson. I say three cheers to Trent for bending ole Carl Peterson over and giving him two knuckles worth. Nobody deserves it more than Carl.

He should not have turned him loose on his own to do the negotiating.

He had no choice if he wanted to try to get a draft pick for a player he has no plans for in the future.

Green isn't the best quarterback on the roster anymore. He's done. Finito. Case closed. Past his prime. Has-been. Washed up. Out to pasture.

He'll go out like Brad Johnson...
