I knew when Herm got rid of him, it was a mistake. Even in his old age and decline he is still better than any option we have.

I understand we are "trying to get younger", but what is the harm in having an older guy fill a spot, better than a TE or LB could do, until you can find a sufficient backup?

Now T-Rich is blocking for the #1 RB in the NFL. I realize Adrian Peterson can make anyone look good (Really wanted to trade Larry and get him, even with all the "?'s" that surrounded him), but still doing a good job, and could have even taught the TE or LB a thing or two.

So why did they come to the stupid decision to let him go?

Is it coincidence that Tony R has blocked for Priest, LJ and now Peterson while they had record setting seasons?? Hes pretty damn good.


Having said that, it was probably time for him to go. The Chiefs never replaced him was the biggest mistake.

Is this question really necessary considering who the GM is?

How can you blame Carl? Yes Carl has the ultimate say...but I'm sure Herm was the one who brought the idea to the table and talked him into it.

I swear, these kinds of threads should become stickies.

Richardson was 34, almost 35 when he decided not to re-sign with the Chiefs. He only played in 9 games in 2006 due to injury.

In 2007, he's played in 10 games and only started 2. While the Vikings have an excellent running attack, this has more to do with the offensive line and scheme.

You should be angrier that the Chiefs passed on Bryant McKinnie in 2002 in favor of Ryan Sims.

The Chiefs of 2007 would look MUCH different with McKinnie at left tackle than Damion McIntosh.

This confuses me.... so do they HC's sign game checks and run the player personnel and not the GM's? Im pretty sure I learned that CP is the one who makes the final decision on everything... example: Priest/Huard starting/18 year-5 year plan...

Also, how can it be a bad move? Hasnt T-Rich missed a ton of games up in Minnesota?

Wasn't the thinking that LJ liked running out of the single back set?

Stupid move either way

Impossible. Boomer replaced T-Rich and as we all know Boomer is the one Chief that can't be replaced.

We use a fullback, what, 20% of the time? We wouldn't ever use him if we still had him.

I like how people throw these randome threads out there like "Why did we get rid of this player?"

Like one player would have made the difference this year??

This is just an aging, horrible team. Almost everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong this year.

Its time to dump as many aging vets as we can and completely rebuild.

Go with youth, and if they do it right (still highly questionable with CP and Herm in charge) it will pay off handsomely in 2 to 3 years.

Yes, bring back T-Rich. He'll pay until he's 42. He's better than anyone we currently have.
