http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_McKay

As general manager for the Buccaneers from 1993 to 2003, McKay directed six teams that reached the NFC playoffs and one team that won a Super Bowl title. In 1996, McKay hired Tony Dungy as head coach, and in 1999 the Bucs played in the NFC championship game.

During his tenure as general manager, McKay drafted the following players: John Lynch (1993), Trent Dilfer (1994), Warren Sapp (1995), Derrick Brooks (1995), Mike Alstott (1996), Ronde Barber (1997), and Warrick Dunn (1997). McKay constructed the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster that featured 12 Pro Bowl players. Also, the Buccaneers' 41 Pro Bowl selections between 1997 through 2002 were the most in the NFL.

In December 2003, McKay left the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was introduced as president and general manager of the Atlanta Falcons. In his first season of directing operations, the Falcons went to the NFC Championship game.

It hasn't been about how good or bad he was for the last three years. The ATL fan base would all line up to blow Vick one at a time for some unknown f**king reason. My guess is it's the old "he acts like at least as big a POS as I am and HE got rich, so it's possible for me too!!!" thing.

There was a whole slew of idiots demanding the Falcons give them their money back for their tickets after the team suspended Vick. Blank thought he was doing himself a favor selling the Atlanta Vicks to the, uhm, errr, "population" in Atlanta only to have that bite him in the ass royally.

Vick is the ultimate slash back, because he can make plays at every offensive "skill" position. He would reign terror for the opposition

If the Chiefs were to move Peterson out of the daily football operations (which would be the likely move, if changes were to be made) and McKay hired as GM, he'd more than likely keep Herm because they were close in Tampa Bay.

I'm sure we'd have an excellent draft and new coaches.

Though Tampa Bay's offenses were certainly nothing to be excited about and maybe even worse than what we're seeing this year.

Crazy. I really haven't followed that aspect of the story much. I used to have a hard time convincing my kids how much real life Vick sucked because they experienced video game Vick. I would rant, my daughter would pick ATL on ESPN NFL2K5 anyway, and I would thrash her with the Broncos ...something like eleventy billion to nothing (Video game Vick didn't like the ol' Bear D too much)...because she pissed me off by buying into the hype. Anyway, with his recent douchebaggery he's been disappeared.

Yea, he really sucked ass in 2006. 22 touchdowns and 1039 yards rushing (8.3 per carry). And he was not exactly surrounded by talent, short of Alge Crumpler he had nobody to throw to.

I mean the guy is a bonehead, but he didn't exactly suck ass. Consider St. Tom Brady only had 24 TDs, and only one less INT than Vick in 2006. Vick ran because he HAD to. His o'line was aweful, and he recievers couldn't catch herpes in Mexico.

I still think if he was smarter he would have been pimping three to five players instead of one. Go ahead and pick all black players (your marketing guys would tell you that's a smart move), but you should NEVER bankroll the whole thing on one freaking guy. Especially not one with a posse. It's not like he didn't have Warrick Dunn and some other non-hoodlums on the team to choose from.

On the local news, they are basically saying he has had the VP title taken away, and it will be up to the new VP if he stays on as GM. I don't see him staying in a diminished role, he's too accomplished for that.

Assuming Herm would stay on, I assume McKay and Herm probably know each other from the tampa days.

Dane I have been a Bucs fan since 1979.. McKay became responsible for the drafts starting in 1996 with Marcus Jones, Reagan Upshaw, Donnie Abraham and Mike Alstott picks. After that he picked Warrick Dunn and left the Bucs in cap hell.Tim Ruskell actually had more to do with the Brooks and Lynch picks. Wyche was the one who was after Sapp.

How could McKay be the GM of the Bucs starting in 1993, yet not have control of his drafts?

This makes no sense.

The only part I will disagree with with is the talent question; in 2006 I believe he had two top 20 WR draft picks, White and Jenkins. He chose not to throw much of the time. I know he can run and should have in the right times; I only saying he had talent there, he made the choices; they weren't "not open" 75% of the time.

The post I was responding to (post #12), specifically compared the seriousness of the two franchises. If the dope who posted post #12 wanted to focus on McCay instead of the franchises, the dope should have said so.

Well, I guess if you want to make that comparison, I'd compare the respective futures of the two. One is making a bold move to hire Bill Parcells, and the other one is crafting Rufus Dawes articles to explain why Peterson needs to stay and "finish what he started".

That's wonderful, Nostradamus. Remind me about this thread when Bill Parcells takes the Falcons to a Super Bowl Championship.

Atlanta was in the NFC champioship game just a few years ago. They went to the Super Bowl in 1998.

I pointed that out already. Are you telling me that you'd trade all of the success of the Chiefs of the 90's for one appearance in the Superbowl where your team gets embarrassed? If so, who am I to judge? For me though, I'll take the Peterson-led Chiefs' track record over that of the Falcons despite their one, semi-successful season.

Well that was my original point.

He's only got 2 more years left on his contract. I can wait. I want to let him leave on his own terms and I think he will when this contract ends. He resurrected Chiefs football and for that I'll always be grateful. If Clark Hunt decided it was time to make a change though, I wouldn't be critical of him. I doubt he will though.

And, besides, I certainly don't see any reason to dump him for an old guy like Bill Parcells. If Parcells takes Atlanta to a Superbowl championship, I'll admit I was wrong.

What if he stays and then the Chiefs go 4-12 the next year? What if they just completely suck, and ownership doesn't do a thing about it? Could this happen? I could only imagine the implosion if it does.

When you look at Atlanta's product since 1989 and decide that winning a playoff game at Lambeau and making an embarrassing appearance in the Superbowl are more desireable than what the Chiefs have done over the same time period, then you should disagree with me. I'm OK with that.

I disagree. The reason the Cowboys are what they are is because they have an owner who won't settle for anything less than success. The Chiefs other hand do. Just a big difference in attitude when you look at the 2 sides.

I'm indifferent when it comes to our GM.

If we want to replace Carl with McKay...go for it! But it's going to be the same old thing when we don't reach a Super Bowl next year, the year after, or the year after that...

Carl has done some good things, and he has done some bad things...but can you blame him for trying to compete this year? Look at how the fans have reacted...

Everyone was PRAYING for a rebuilding year...that's essentially what happened...Brodie is playing...a lot of young guys are playing...we're going to draft in the top 10...and everyone is crying about it.

Is this NOT what everyone wanted?

AND I'm pretty sure everyone knows we were an average defense away from being the best team in the NFL during the Vermeil tenure...when you have coaches telling Carl it's the system, it's the system...what can he do?

He can't predict the future...I would say he's done an ADEQUATE job since Marty...and I definitely would have no problem with him being fired...

Then they should have started rebuilding during the past off season and then be honest with the fans about it.

They did neither and they wasted 3/4 of a season before starting the rebuild process when it should been done from day 1 this year.

In 1989-98 we hired a coach who brought winning, success, and stability to this franchise. A large part of the Chiefs success is in credit to Marty. Marty is the best coach that the Chiefs have had since Peterson has been around.

I think that makes a difference when you hire a guy who wins! Marty is that. But when you change coaches all the time it has an affect on how you do things. How many times have the Chiefs changed HC's in the last decade? 3 times.

I really think it would help this franchise if they brought in a REALLY good head coach who can bring in a winning attitude and one who knows what he's doing and that has a really good plan. One who can win consistently and just do a great enough job where he can stay and have success and longevity thats what we need. There are a handful of coaches in this league that are like that. Andy Reid, Mike Shanahan, Bill Cowher(Ok well till he resigned), Jeff Fisher, Bill Belichek. These are to name a few, and good NFL head coaches.

But it helps when you dont change coaches all the time and hire a winner. Chiefs need to do that. Maybe Herm is that guy? Who knows? But honestly, I don't interpret it as a good sign when in your second year as a head coach you go from ok to really bad especially after you've had the opportunity to upgrade your roster. 2nd year should always be an improvement for coaches. That hasn't been the case for Herm, and that's what's bothersome.

IMHO the sole reason we were a SB contender was because of Marty. Every year he was handcuffed by a cheap GM\owner who never spent the necessary dollars to upgrade the team except for the every other year 1 big FA bust that they signed excluding Marcus and Montana.

The Chiefs routinely over achieved based on the rosters overall talent and that was because Marty willed them and coached them to succeed.

But in the playoffs you have to have superior talent and great coaching to win and we didn't have neither.

And what is the reason the Chiefs are having to rebuild in the first place? "Rebuilding" means you didn't maintain it properly. It means you didn't prepare replacements for Roaf, Shields, Law, etc. It means you blew important draft picks on a fat samoan, a TE/FB/WR hybrid, and a MLB with the shortest arms in the world.

I honestly never thought they really were. I just think it caught up to them eventually. The outcome of this season determined the direction where they are headed and what they should do. And I think they are feeling it now not drafting replacements for Roaf, Shields, Law..One of Peterson's weaknesses as a GM that I have noticed is not thinking ahead. always clingy towards those veterans and not thinking of replacing them sooner rather than later.

And I am lead to believe that if it wasn't for the injuries this year to Huard, LJ, etc...We wouldn't have seen the young guys play. jmo

Is this NOT what everyone wanted?

Everyone wanted a rebuild year from the start with the expectation that by this point in the season some of the young players would be improving and the playcalling and competitiveness of the team would improve.

What we got was half a season of non-rebuild where the team fell apart, lost their will, at times quit and the coaching has remained questionable at best. Instead of getting better things have steadily worsened.

This is a joke right?

The stuff that everyone is griping about today is 'Marty lite'...did everyone enjoy KC's playoff appearance in January, because it was very much like the 'SB contending' Marty versions of the 90's...the mere fact that anyone could type that and not break out in uproarious laughter is beyond me. I certainly couldnt do it.

The ONLY reason that Marty got to the AFC Championship was on one player, Joe Montana. Pure and simple. Marty had ZERO to do with that and Carl made that call. While I can find many things to fault Carl for and the list is a 1000 miles long, but this is just absurd.

Marty/Herm are two sides of the same coin. Playing not to lose sucks now and it sucked back in the 90's. Holy crap.
