View Full Version : Chiefs The Herm Drafts: An Analysis

It seems the anti-Herm crowd has suddenly decided that his drafts have not been that good. Horsepucky, I say.

LETS DO THIS

2006
----

1st Round: Tamba Hali

I am sick of people taking shots at Tamba. What does he have at the moment, 7 sacks? He had 6 going into Sunday, but maybe they only gave him a half for the one he got on Vince Young. We all know the guy has been battling various injuries this season. AND... the way I look at it, he also missed 2 games this year because of the Allen suspension. Without Allen in the lineup, all teams had to do was load up against Tamba. He went without a sack in the first two games. The game Allen came back and teams had to stop putting all their focus on him, Tamba had two sacks. Coincidence?

He needs to improve against the run, but so did Allen at first and he got better. Tamba is a damn good player. Anyone who cannot see that is either blind or their parents were brother and sister.

Score: Herm 1, Haters 0


2nd Round: Bernard Pollard

I am equally sick of people taking shots at Pollard. The guy is in his first year as a starter. Maybe, gasp, shock, he will get better as he learns and gets experience. Or maybe the haters are right and he is just a step or two too slow to be a safety in the NFL.

But guess what? That hardly makes him a bust or a bad player. The guy is a hell of an athlete. He and Donnie Edwards are the same size, put Pollard at LB and he may shine. Hell, tell him to gain 20 pounds and put him at MLB next season, I bet he makes more plays than Harris. His ability on special teams does not even need mentioning. Pollard will be making an impact on this team for years.

Score: Herm 2, Haters 0


3rd Round: Brodie Croyle

Everyone with half a brain should know by now that Croyle will be a good QB. Imagine what he will do when he actually has a line to protect him. Or a running game. That said, I will obstain from counting him in the score since the jury, it can be argued, is still out. But if he is still starting in 2009, every hater on this board should be lining up to give Herm a reach-around.

Score: Herm 2, Haters 0


5th Round: Marcus Maxey

Hey, a bad pick. In the 5th round. Maxey was a starter at Miami, but he did not pan out for whatever reason.

Score: Herm 2, Haters 1


6th Round: Tre Stallings

Nobody knows anything about Stallings, so there will be no score given here.

Score: Herm 2, Haters 1


6th Round: Jeff Webb

Webb seems like a capable 3rd or 4th receiver. He is a 6th round pick, what do you expect from him? To be Randy Moss? And who knows, maybe he will start to emerge if/when he sees more balls thrown his way. But a contributor this late in the draft is a win no matter which way you slice it.

Score: Herm 3, Haters 1


7th Round: Jarrad Page

Page is a 7th round pick and is starting. That is the draft value version of a grand slam. I believe he leads the team in INTs. Some people have taken to knocking him lately, too. What a joke.


Score: Herm 4, Haters 1

Even with an admittedly screwed up scoring system where a possible franchise QB gets the same weight as a 5th round pick at cornerback, the Herm haters have been soundly defeated. Let us move to 2007.


2007
----

1st round: Dwayne Bowe

Please. Do I even need to?

Score: Herm 5, Haters 1


2nd round: Turk McBride
3rd round: Tank Tyler

I group them together since they play similar positions and have seen about the same amount of playing time. It has become trendy to take shots at these guys too, rookies in their first year who have hardly played that much. I think it is valid to criticise Herm for not giving them more of a chance to see what they can do, but it is far too early to criticise them as bad picks. Not every position in the NFL is like running back, where rookies can come in and just take off.

Brodie got no score, so neither do these guys.

Score: Herm 5, Haters 1


5th Round: Kolby Smith

Kolby certainly appears to be a capable NFL running back. What are the Herm-haters/Vermeil-lovers going to say if, in just two years, Herm got better offensive players (at the 3 key skill positions, no less) than anyone Vermeil wanted to add to this team? Croyle, Bowe, and Kolby versus Kris Wilson and Samie Parker? Talk about a mismatch. Notice the key phrase, btw, wanted to add, which disqualifies a certain moody RB.

Score: Herm 6, Haters 1


5th Round: Justin Medlock

Another bad 5th round pick. We all know this was on Carl and his UCLA obsession, but to be sporting we will count it against Herm.

Score: Herm 6, Haters 2


6th Round: Herb Taylor
7th Round: Michael Allen

I group these two together because neither has played. But mark my words, someone (LJ) will get put on IR before our final game so that Allen can be activated from the PS and nobody can take him. And next season, he will be the #2 TE. With Dunn and Wilson, there is just no room for him on the roster right now.

Score: Herm 6, Haters 2

There we have it. 2 bad picks out of 14. 6 picks it is too early to say one way or the other on, but at least 2 of those are generously not being counted in the positive column. And 6 who will be, at a minimum, solid contributors on this team for years, with a couple possible Pro Bowl level players. And none of this is comparing anything to the god-awful drafts before Herm got here. They are simply an analysis of his drafts and his drafts alone.

The last two drafts have been very good at doing exactly what we need, which is to finally start restocking this team with some talent.

Quick, haters! Mount up and tell me why this is wrong!

Some of the picks turned out good but we could have gotten better value by trading down getting even MORE picks and end up with the same players.

Jeff Webb is brutal. Mark it.
A 2nd round pick for a good ST player is brutal. Mark it.
Tre Stallings is brutal. Mark it

This is hilarious.....if a player sucks "not enough is known" but if he's alright Herm gets a point....that's some bias shit.

By the way Pollard ****in blows that shouldn't be a point. Webb shouldn't entail any points either...As of right now Herm is 3/6 on first day picks...that is not impressive.

Tank, Turk and Pollard were drafted to be solid starters/potential stars. So far they show no indication they will amount to a hill of beans.

Right now the only picks that can be considered a success are:

Bowe
Hali
Page
Kolby

That's it.

Way too early to do this. For example, Bartee was a 2nd round draft choice. His 3rd season was his best statistically, and there was still a chance that he would pan out even then. He was ultimately a bust, but there is no way that you could make that call after 1 or 2 years.

The other problem is that it looking at the number of hits and misses is the wrong metric.

The goal is to win the SB. To win the SB you have to be among the top 4 or 5 teams in the league.

The question is, are you adding new talent that is performing at a high enough level at a fast enough rate to close the gap between your team and the best team in the league? If you are not, you won't reach elite status. If your coach won't get you to elite status, you need to switch no matter how many of the draft choices have "panned out".

I think your analysis is very good, Mr. Boris The Great. Thanks for posting.

Still, the fact you give the Haters no points for picks that have not seen sufficient PT to evaluate is unfair to the Haters. On the other hand, I think you should have given a point to the Herms for Croyle.

Overall, it was a good job ... but not outstanding. Therefore, I shall call you Mr. Boris The Average.

Right now the only picks that can be considered a success are:

Bowe
Hali
Page
Kolby

That's it.

I'll take it a step further. Page and Kolby can be considered successful because of the low expectation associated with their draft position. They have already exceeded expectations.

The jury is still out on both Bowe and Hali because of their high draft position. The expectations are much greater, especially if you consider that you want to win a SB. You need elite players, and they are most likely to come in the first round. Not every 1st round pick needs to develop in to an elite player at his position, but some of them do. Hali needs to kick his sophomore slump and improve on his rookie year in season 3 to be considered a success. If he can do that, he can be a solid starter, but I don't see him becoming elite. Bowe is off to a great start, but needs to improve in year 2 and 3 to be considered a successful first round pick. Especially he needs to eliminate drops and improve his ability to separate from defenders. If he can do both of those, while maintaining his YAC ability, I could see him developing into an elite WR.

If you want to win a SB, you have to have high evaluation standards.

It's too early to judge Turk and Tank, the DT position is a very tough one for a rookie to learn. I'd like to think Pollard and Page are too early to judge too, but they've got to learn quick to make any of us think they're gonna make it as starters.

One thing I'll never forget is when Trent Dilfer was on Colin Cowherd and explained what a QB has to remember as far as play calling. Holyshit, that was eye-opening. He rattled off one of the most basic plays, and it was like listening to a mathematician rattle off some equation. Then he went on to explain that that one simple play had like 5 variations depending on the defense. (They were talking about Vince Young and decision making) It was cool to hear a former QB actually give insight to what goes on in the huddle for once.

I was watching NFL Live on thursday (maybe it was friday) and one of the host said Herm Edwards made a bold prediction on a morning radio show. They BOLD PREDICTION was "the Raiders will go 8-8" and maybe make the playoffs. Herm said he sure did say it and on the morning show (i think that was mike and mike) he pulled out a raiders helmet (but he choose not to put it on). He also said he think the cheifs a do prety good but that was just to keep the heat off of him for looking like a unloyal former coach, but also on nfl live the Lions former GM Matt Millen also gave his thought on the prediction and he was saying yes he think it will happen because he belives we have all the young talent and its about time we start making a leaps to be that once proud franchise.

Note the words bold prediction and not guarantee. After he said this the media ran with it and twisted it like they usually do.

Milkman and I both heard the word "guaranteed" on the radio. You obviously didn't. This argument is pointless. This is why the middle east has had war for centuries. LOL

I don't give a rat's ass how they presented his "bold prediction" on NFL live.

I listened to the fucking Mike an Mike show that he made the bold prediction on.

He gauranteed the fucking Raiders would win 8 games.

Remember when Herm would mock the post-draft grades the Chiefs received? "This is a C draft?!?"

Yeah, dumb ****, you were kind of right. C was way, way too high.

He would also go back and knock those before him. Well it looks like Herm was just as BAD at drafting as he was at coaching.

The same bus Herm threw his players under?

I don't watch ESPN much, and I do watch a lot of NFL Network.

However, even there, you simply can't get away from ashats and buffons.

I turned it on this morning when I got out of bed, and the show on a was a "Round Table" discussion of the upcoming season.

It included Steve Marriochi, Marshall Faulk, Michel Irving, and Deion Sanders.

I simply can not watch Irving and Sanders.

I want to reach through the TV screen and punch them in the mouth.

Faiders going 8 and 8? Could happen, I guess. But, I kinda doubt it.

The thing that sits on my twinkie is that Herm is actually a RAIDERS FAN!!! A friggin' RAIDERS FAN!!! In case you guys didn't hear, he's a goddamn, stinking RAIDERS FAN!!!

That, alone, should have immediately disqualified him for consideration as HC of the Chiefs. Carl Peterson gave up a friggin' pick to hire a RAIDERS FAN to be head coach of our team!! What in the name of Mr. milkman's shrunken head collection was he thinking? Whatever it was, it was more than enough reason to hit him with your car if you happen to see him crossing the street.

This,

Regardless of the pathetic talent that was brought in or drafted, Herm took this franchise to depths that were never thought of before.

It was virtually as bad as the Raiders and thats frightening on any level.
