I think Herm Edwards can be a Super Bowl coach for the Chiefs, but he will not lead this team to a Super Bowl until he is willing to let his offensive coordinator keep his offensive unit on the practice field long enough to get its sh*t together.

The only Chiefs' unit that is below-average talent wise is the O-Line. They are not as below average as they play and would perform better if they put in the time.

The Special Teams return units also reflect a lack of preparation.

Lite practices don't harm a defense if they players condition on their own, and study enough to know where to line up and their assignments.

However, offense and return units need to practice in order to be effective.

The great irony regarding Herm Edwards is that he tries to minimize risk during the game, yet he makes the biggest gamble that any coach can make, that is, to limit practice based on time and not demonstrated performance.

Hopefully, he can learn from his mistakes and drill his team enough that he can trust it to compete like NFL grown-ups instead of like a Pop Warner team. This team has more talent than most NFL squads, Herm, the press and the fans need to quit pretending otherwise.

If he ever stopped tampering we might really have something, but that isn't going to happen.

NFL wisdom is die-hard.
Those who cannot adjust... Do not win anything meaningful.

Herm Edwards will never be a superbowl coach...

He is way to outdated and is unwilling to surround himself with a supporting cast that will allow him to succeed.

This way he doesnt have to look over his shoulder when he is being exposed for the fraud he is...

Food for thought!
