View Full Version : WHITLOCK - Peterson’s made a mess

It’s going to be hard to build team chemistry with Trent Green hanging at one end of the locker room nailed to a cross.

Herm Edwards might want to ask for a raise. You could argue he has the toughest job in coaching this offseason.

Herm is trying to move the Chiefs’ franchise in a new, youthful, defensive, winning and boring direction. He’s overhauling the roster, installing a wishbone offense and auditioning quarterbacks three plays at a time.

While Herm works his magic, his most important player (Larry Johnson) is preparing for a major contract dispute with Carl Peterson, Herm’s best defensive player (Jared Allen) is still fuming about his contract dealings with Peterson, and Herm’s most trusted leader (Trent Green) is trying to disgrace Peterson into making a trade with the Miami Dolphins.

Yep, Tuesday’s OTAs — otherwise known as “offseason turmoil announcements” — got off to a delicious start. You can’t blame Herm if he’s longing for his glorious New York days when all he really had to worry about was getting a fifth-string quarterback ready to face the New England Patriots.

Working around King Carl’s messes is one of the most underappreciated skills in all of professional sports. Marty Schottenheimer quit in disgust. Gunther Cunningham lost his mind. Dick Vermeil found the whole process beneath him.

Herm? We don’t know how he’ll handle it, though we’re going to find out shortly.

The early signs are troubling. On Tuesday, in order to make good on the false promise King Carl made to Green about a fair QB competition, Herm rotated his four quarterbacks — Green, Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle and Casey Printers — three plays at a time.

Herm spent all offseason proclaiming his love of Croyle and promising to get younger. Peterson gave Huard a new contract, asked Green to take a pay cut and then told Green to find a team willing to make a trade.

And now here we are at the end of May, and the Chiefs want to play musical quarterbacks. It’s a silly, directionless game that Green justifiably has no interest in playing.

That’s why he held a 23-minute news conference/crucifixion after the workout. He did everything except say he’d been scarred for life by the half-truths he believes Peterson and Edwards have told, and Green came dangerously close to calling Peterson a nappy-headed, leather-coated GM.

Man, it was ugly. Green stood in the bowels of Arrowhead Stadium and said he desperately wants to play for the Miami Dolphins. The problem for Peterson and Edwards is that all the players in the locker room seem to agree with Green. They believe Green is unfairly being held hostage by the front office.

For six years the players in that locker room have put their faith in Trent Green. He rewarded that trust with courageous play, unwavering loyalty and rock-solid leadership. Green is beloved and respected in Kansas City’s locker room.

Other than Will Shields, who retired, Green is the last guy the Chiefs need hanging from a cross while Herm is trying to move the team in a positive, new, boring direction.

Good cop/bad cop doesn’t work in professional football. Herm can’t love away all of Peterson’s bad business dealings. The players need to feel the love all the way from the top of the organization.

That does not mean the players have to be coddled. It just means it’s dangerous to have your rank-and-file players believe that the team’s president/general manager is mistreating the player they respect the most.

The Chiefs should cut Trent Green or trade him today. End of story.

The organization looks weak, mean-spirited and clueless every day they hold on to Green and continue the QB charade. If Croyle is the man, he doesn’t need to play musical QBs with Green casting a shadow this summer.

How does musical QBs help Croyle develop?

Green doesn’t want to be here. He’s mentally checked out on Kansas City. He wants to go to south Florida and reunite with Cam Cameron. Another day of “offseason turmoil announcements” is very harmful to the 2007 Chiefs. Each day Herm’s job gets more difficult.

It’s time for Clark Hunt to step in and tell King Carl this is unhealthy for the franchise and not the way the Chiefs are going to treat six-year, loyal employees. And while Clark has the King on the phone, he might want to tell the King to clean out his office, too.

Whitlock is loving it

I'm sure the players are at an icecream parlor crying right now....

Just to recap:

1. Carl is to blame for trying to trade Trent at Trent's request

2. Carl is to blame for not giving away a starting QB for free

3.The team will be emotionally destroyed if Trent isn't traded for a 7th...they will never love again...

4. Carl is to blame...just because

5. Carl is to blame

6. Carl

THINK, MCFLY, THINK. :banghead:

The question no one apparently asked Green during his woe-is-me press conference is how he feels about going to a team that thinks he's worth exactly NOTHING in trade value? They're really rolling out the red carpet, aren't they? :shake:

Evidently he doesn't realize that, heck I hadn't even read the thread about the Fins not wanting to give up a 6th and swap thirds for him when I posted that. So allow me to rephrase, why is he throwing a fit about wanting to play in Miami when it's obvious they don't really want him? If he's going to get pissy with anyone it should be with the Dolphins.

Watch this unfold, Carl will win this one... one way or another. The current situation may make for good copy... but CP clearly has the upper hand versus an inept Miami management team. I LOVE Trent... but I would rather see him sit than see KC get fecked on a deal from the worthless inept corksuckers in South Florida.

None of us know what was said behind closed doors when Carl talked with Trent. If Carl said "Trent, we're gonna get a deal done if you find a team you wanna go to" and that's it, then Carl needs to live up to his word and trade him and stop all of this BS. If Carl said something like "You can go to a team you choose if you can cut a deal but we're not giving you up in the process for nothing" then more than likely we will keep Green this season and make MIA suck their own shit with a VERY shitty QB situation.

Fact remains, he is due something around 7.2 mil if he stays- the man is hardly on the cross.

As for the players in the locker room. There are very few that were around for most of his time. The oldest vets would be TG and Donnie Edwards, who is more than aware of the business side of being shown the door, yet that didn't stop him from coming back. Not buying what is being sold.

The man is no martyr. He was traded for a 1st rounder and has been paid well. I love the guy and think the world of him, but I'm not going to be roped into feeling bad b/c our GM, who many here don't like, is doing his job and asking for what he thinks a fair market value is for a starting QB. Miami can waver all they want, but they wouldn't still be dancing if they didn't see they need a viable starting QB for next year.

In the mean time, the 'phins can suck my d!ck, and Trent has to realize this is a business decision, no more than him riding pine while watching Rams win a SB b/c he got hurt. I'm sure life will go on, and I'll think fondly of him either way.

I'd be fine with 6th in 2008. or up to 5th if he plays well in Miami.

Trent was avg behind a Great Oline, great TE, Great RB in Priest, Good WR in Eddie K. and cast of other avg recievers.

Paid well as Cocina said. and We gave a 1st rounder for him to Lambs.

Trent/Agent should be asking Miami what's the problem or are you hioping another QB gets cuts in June to compare against me????

I just don't get the love for Carl in this. He is very much locked in as one of the bottom third of GM's in the game. Further, after all of this, we will be very lucky to win 7 games this year - and we get to watch run, run, pass, punt all year to boot. I understand it is a rebuild year, but does anyone on this board trust that King Carl is up to the task? I sure as hell don't.

Trent Green has done much more for me as a fan than Carl Peterson ever will. If Carl could build both sides of the line at the same time...maybe I would feel differently. But, he can't so I won't.

How many years since a playoff win, again???

Damn, we are such Cub fans.

Carl sucks ass, he always has, and always will. He's a parasite to the organization, nothing more, nothing less. That said, for Trent to cry like a baby cuz Carl won't bend over and make yet another bad personnel decision, is BS. Green knows better than to think the organziation owes him a way out of KC in exchange for a bad deal.

It's hard to assess Green's value given his injury/awful performance last year. Why a conditional pick deal can't be agreed upon is a mystery to me.

If the Chiefs actually had a viable option at QB to replace Green it would be one thing, but the pathetic thing about this disgusting mess that Carl has created is the fact that Trent Green is still the best QB on the Chiefs' roster.

This reminds me of the Houston Oilers dumping Warren Moon for Cody Carlson and the 49ers dumping Jeff Garcia in favor of Tim Rattay. Those decisions destroyed those franchises and apparently that is what Carl is attempting to do here... completely destroy the franchise as his final "gift" to the fanbase.

Whitlock hits another HR.

The best interest of the team is getting rid of the disgruntled team leader so that Brodie can try to assume the role of team leader and give the reps to the young QB.

But then again I want Carl gone. If things like this speed up the process, then he can keep up his tough SOB negotiator persona and alienate the entire team.

You must have watched a different season than I did last year. Huard was 3X the QB Green was, and sticking with Green late in the season was simply idiotic. Granted Trent played in a funk, but who's to say he's out of it now?

We are going to suck this year and probably next, anyway, so I say get a fair deal done for Green, suck with Huard and Croyle, get some top draft picks in '08 and '09, and rethink it over the next couple of years.

And, by the way, get rid of the real problem, Carl Peterson, yesterday.

But why does the so-called "youth movement" only apply to certain players? Tony Gonzalez is on the other side of 30 now and was a complete no show in the playoff debacle in Indy yet that didn't stop Carl from giving him a fat new contract this offseason.

If anything you can call his tenure a complete failure. He has only produced one AFC championship game and ZERO Superbowl appearances... IN 18 FREAKING YEARS!

Trent Green is cashing in all his good will with the media and the fans and it's working to some extent. He's got most of the media and some fans feeling sorry for him. But let's be real Green should not be pitied, and this deal has been screwed up by more than the Chiefs. Everyone is right when they say if Trent is mad he should also be mad at the Dolphins, they obviously didn't seem to feel they need him that badly. And the media says things like, " Well the dolphins are waiting for the Chiefs to release him, and why why shouldn't they if they can get him for nothing they should do it." So they think the Dolphins should get the best deal possible but not the Chiefs? The Dolphins holding out to get Trent for nothing is shrewd, but the Chiefs holding out to get more for Trent is mean. I see.

It's just another example of how selective fans are in their criticisms.

When Tait was here, he got moved from LT to RT, so he was a "bust". Carl's fault.

Then we let him get away to Chicago for nothing. Carl's fault.

And you can bet your ass if we would have given him the kind of money Chicago gave him, that would also be Carl's fault.

The guy spent 15 years with Marty and Vermeil trying to build a team with aging veterans and it didn't work. Now he's trying to use a fresh approach, something the fans have been screaming for for a DECADE, and he's doing it wrong.

HOLY SHIT.

REALITY CHECK: It's SPORTS.

Nobody's being crucified. Nobody's being fed to the lions. Nobody's being betrayed by the Jews. Nobody's being executed by the Romans.

Nobody's life is in danger.

Nobody's team is in danger.

A grown man who gets to play football for a living is in contractual limbo right now because trade negotiations have stalled.

This grown man is a millionaire.

This grown man is treated like a celebrity.

This grown man has a wife and children.

The team in question is comprised of other grown men.

They're not in danger. They're not in jeopardy. Nobody's cursed and nobody's in serious trouble. Things just aren't progressing the way we'd like them to in a perfect world.

Get some ****ing perspective, Jason. People can get on with their lives when they are surrounded with blood and chaos and layoffs and poverty. I know for a fact the team can get on with itself through this.

Can I neg rep Jason Whitlock? Is there somewhere I can go to do that?

Left guard Brian Waters said he couldn’t respect Green more for the way he’s handling his uncertain future. Waters said the Chiefs’ management has mistreated Green.

“Considering the professional he’s been … I don’t think it’s fair to him,” Waters said. “I don’t think it’s fair. A guy in his position is owed the right to be in a stable position and know where he’s going to be at.

I dont disagree one bit....

And not bashing on Herm, but Carl could of used the "think outside the box" approach and hired someone that is hungry to make is mark, to build his own team, legacy and not hired another one of his puppet yes men..

But in all fairness to Herm.. So far so good, Last years playoffs was a fluke and may never happen like that agian, ever... But Herm is molding this team into a tougher more physical team and less of a finese p*ssy team that DV left...

I will reserve judgement to this year on Herm. IF he can improve his game management and offense play calling skills. Then he might be a coach worth praising... But his offseason moves are worth praising (except Trent).

Every article that comes out like this one further polarizes the argument.

Carl is winning.

If you had bothered to read my post, you will notice that I said that Trent is being a baby. That doesn't change the fact that Carl Peterson is a poor GM that has overstayed his useful life, and once again has created unnecessary embarrasment to the organization. The fact that he keeps his job while being unable to elevate the franchise above mediocrity does actually bother some of us.

Your posts on this message board echo caller after caller on 810 and 610.

The criticisms of Carl are SO extreme (and often ridiculously unfounded to boot) that it polarizes not only Carl's supporters but it causes those in the middle or "on the fence" to gravitate AWAY from your position, rather than to it.

I don't consider stating the obvious - Peterson has not accomplished his stated 5-year plan, within 15 years- is "SO extreme". Conversely, it's stating the obvious. The obvious that the Hunts refuse to see.

I just don't get the love for Carl in this. He is very much locked in as one of the bottom third of GM's in the game. Further, after all of this, we will be very lucky to win 7 games this year - and we get to watch run, run, pass, punt all year to boot. I understand it is a rebuild year, but does anyone on this board trust that King Carl is up to the task? I sure as hell don't.

Trent Green has done much more for me as a fan than Carl Peterson ever will. If Carl could build both sides of the line at the same time...maybe I would feel differently. But, he can't so I won't.

How many years since a playoff win, again???

Damn, we are such Cub fans.

We should all read this again.

The sad part of this is that Trent threw everything he had and more into his time as a Chief and I expected he'd always be treated with respect by the FO of the club and its fans. But so many have completely forgotten about his famous blocks on Priest's running plays, his scrambles for 1st down despite being slow as molasses, and his deep bombs to Kennison in stride.

Trent was a truly great Chief, and yet so many fans are so fickle.

I don't blame CP for playing hardball. He always has, and we'd be fools to expect that to change. However, I hope Trent gets what he wants. CP should see Trent's real value at this age, and compromise on a 6th rounder. Let's all move on and quit showing our ass.

I think it's obvious to most people who have been around KC for the past 15 years what type of individual Peterson is. Most people have come to see him as an arrogant, greedy, opportunistic high-lifer that has personally profitted greatly from the fans of KC, and not given us the winner he promised. Many consider that kind of person shallow.

Some of us have encountered him socially as well. I personally attended a charity event 2 or 3 years ago that featured Willie Mays. Willie agreed to hold a brief autograph session after he spoke. Guess who sheepishly circled the crowd of autograph seekers and cut in line to get the last few autographs? Correct, none other than good ole Carl. I suspect there are others willing to share their experiences with the guy. I'm aware of others, and it's safe to say that Carl is not your typical Kansas Citian.

It's implict that whatever Carl told Green was contingent on fair and reasonable compensation being given the Chiefs as part of the deal, Trent knew and knows that. For Green to ignore that in his public whinings is disingenious on his part, and for the local press not to beat him over the head with it and expose him, is just pathetic journalism.

Yeah Laz, I mentioned that in the thread about his interview with KK.

Where CP made is mistake is showing Trent the respect to go out and find a team.

Loyalty got in the way, IMO. Carl should have found suitors for Trent, agreed on compensation, agreed on deals contingent on Trent working out a deal with the trading partner, etc.

THEN and only then should he have allowed Trent to pick-and-choose.

"Hey Trent, good news. Miami, Cleveland, Detroit, etc are interested in your services. We have adequate deals in place with whoever you choose. Good luck."

Furthermore, people like you that actually care what kind of person Carl is off the field are the vast minority.

Even the people that aren't happy with Carl's ON FIELD performance and would like to see him leave (I'm one of them, BTW) aren't a clear majority, as evidenced by ticket sales each and every Sunday.

There's a ton of people out there that have considered joining the cause. Then they tune into a couple of minutes of Kevin Keitzman and they think "boy, if this guy speaks for the anti-Carl crowd, I don't want to be one of them".

No offense Simplex, but Carl hasnt proved sh*t in 18 years as the GM of the Chiefs...

If anything you can call his tenure a complete failure. He has only produced one AFC championship game and ZERO Superbowl appearances... IN 18 FREAKING YEARS!


With or without Mr Playoffs Victories (Marty) Carl hasnt produced as a GM... Carl has overstayed his welcome by at least 10 years...
WTF? Has reading comprehension gone out the window around here? Here was what I said. Try reading it slower.

As soon as Carl shows the ability to win in the playoffs or win at all without Marty I'll start caring if someone piles on his dumb ass.

In other words, Carl has not shown an ability to win in the playoffs. He also hasn't won during the regular season much since Marty left.

Furthermore, people like you that actually care what kind of person Carl is off the field are the vast minority.

Even the people that aren't happy with Carl's ON FIELD performance and would like to see him leave (I'm one of them, BTW) aren't a clear majority, as evidenced by ticket sales each and every Sunday.

There's a ton of people out there that have considered joining the cause. Then they tune into a couple of minutes of Kevin Keitzman and they think "boy, if this guy speaks for the anti-Carl crowd, I don't want to be one of them".

The best news for any of us who want Carl gone, regardless of whether you know him, like him or not, is the large number of advertisements for Chiefs Season tickets. Evidently, there are more and more people seeing through his BS and cashing out.

WTF? Has reading comprehension gone out the window around here? Here was what I said. Try reading it slower.



In other words, Carl has not shown an ability to win in the playoffs. He also hasn't won during the regular season much since Marty left.


ROFL, WTF? Simplex at that time of the month or what? Well Marty hasnt won much in the playoffs either since he left KC...

Usually I enjoy Whitlocks opinion, but this article was pretty bad.

From what I understand, on draft day, Carl offered Green to Miami for their 6th pick and a swap in the 3rd or 4th round: We would have moved up 11 spots in one of those rounds.

Miami didn't budge. It's their loss. I think Carl made a fair offer there.

It only matters if the stadium is full. It really doesn't matter if it's season tickets or gameday tickets bought at the gate.

They can always just say that the economy prevents people from buying season tickets and that those people are opting for single-game tickets for fewer games.

It all depends on whether or not Arrowhead is full.

whit is clueless like the rest of the media on this topic.

TG should not be blaming CP and the Chiefs he should be calling CAM and saying that if you want me you're going to have to give up something of value I'm not chopped liver. If Moss got a 4th then I should at least garner this if not a 3rd! Come on CAM pay up!

They didn't offer that deal.

It was actually fabricated by Clark Judge at the request of Carl Peterson.
