Where are they now? I knew all this would happen. We were very fortunate to have DV coach our team. Despite all the negatives everyone would wish that DV's retirement was a dream (Like a Dallas Episode) and that it never happened.

I can't believe Clark is going to let CP and Herm have another year of this and hide behind REBUILDING!

He's truly the real embarrassment of this league not the Chief's!

New GM and new Coaching will make things better

If you think Herm is even close to Vermiel your ****ing retarded. Our defenses were bad then because of the players, our offense is horrible because Herm thinks you can run run swing pass and punt every ****ing god damn series

What do you think DV would have done with this team over the last three years? My guess is we would have just continued the same old stuff. Win 7 or 9 games and try to fill our needs by signing veteran free agents. Its not a long term plan. And I doubt DV would have solved our QB problem.

And I'm not saying Herm is a good coach, I just don't think DV would be doing us any good right now either.

Watching these last 11 regular season losses in a row and this pathetic anemic offense would have any fan welcome DV and his staff with open arms!!!!!!!!!

If the goal of playing football in the NFL is to win a Super Bowl, and neither coach is at all capable of achieving that goal, then the two coaches suck equally.

The snazzy offense under Vermeil was a fašade. It covered up for the worst defense ever for a while, but eventually it all collapsed.

I have to admit that, merely from an entertainment perspective, you have an excellent point, Mr. chiefsfan1963. At least under DV's rule, we were setting records in things like Scoring and Touchdowns and First Downs and stuff like that. Now we're going for things like "Most Consecutive Games That Don't Make Sense" and "Yards Per Anus".

The thread is not saying DV is the answer for the future, but he was certainly headed in the right direction unlike the current HC.No, it was a short term plan. We were an old team thanks to Dick. We couldn't sustain a long run up to the current year. We had to blow up the roster because of Dick and his poor drafting and his reliance on veteran free agents.

Vermeil was the type of guy who had too much loyalty for our own good. He couldn't fire Greg Robinson in time. He brought in guys like Dexter McLeon because he had a personal connection to them. That's not how you win in the NFL anymore and certainly wasn't getting us headed in the right direction.

Oh don't forget that it was entertaining to actually watch the Chief's play on Sunday when DV coached our team.I don't care about entertainment, I care about winning the Super Bowl. I'd rather be the boring ass Ravens SB championship team than the high flying Chiefs who can't win a playoff game.

You know, all common sense aside, I don't see any redeeming attributes in a showing like we had today. Sure, a loss is a loss, but I'd rather see the Chiefs score more than one touchdown every couple of games or so. Frankly, if I had my 'druthers', I'd like to see the Chiefs return as a threat to score a touchdown everytime they had the ball on offense.

There's no shame in scoring, gentlemen. Did DV sell the soul of the franchise to build his offense? Sure. Did he struggle putting a competitive defense on the field? Absolutely. But which team is more fun to watch and capable of making it all the way? The one that could put 40 on you without breaking a sweat, or the one that can't convert a first down? The one that gave up 350 yards rushing, or the one that gave up 300?

In my heart, I know that the two goals of fielding a fearsome offense and a team that isn't populated with Methuselah's elder brothers aren't mutually exclusive. Alternatively, neither is the notion of a team comprised of young, ascending players and one that can move the chains more than 4 times in 60 minutes.

The Chiefs scored a touchdown today with a 7th round, waived draft choice who took only 50% of the snaps in practice this week. A guy who didn't play for USC or Miami or Ohio State or Florida. A guy who played for a 1-AA school who spent all of last year watching.

You make it sound like he had nothing to do with the rebuilding and eventual success of the team resulting in a ring. So what if his teams went 5-11 and 4-12 before he won it all. That's what happens when you take over a shitty team and build a winner. The man has a helluva offensive mind and is a superb football coach. Again, don't really want him back but give him the respect he has earned for goodness sake.

No, he didn't.

He was a stubborn old bastard that was forced to either take orders from John Shaw or be fired.

The same thing happened in KC with Larry Johnson; Peterson drafted him while Vermeil wanted Tyler Brayton (another ****ing Vermeil reach). The consequences were that LJ was in Vermeil's "doghouse" and called him out in front of the national media.

He's a grumpy old **** that should have never been hired. Additionally, he didn't do jackshit for the Chiefs.

Unless you consider completely ****ing up their roster for the better part of a decade a great thing.

We've coddled him too much. And now alienated him with the offensive philosophy. DV handled him perfectly. Didn't play him too much as a rookie when he was really raw, told him he needed to learn to block and would ride him so he'd play with a chip on his shoulder. He ran for 5+ yards a carry in DV's last year... even with Jordan Black at LT. It didn't matter.

maybe because...despite the fact DV had horrible drafts...he still knew how to A) gameplan, B) run an offense, and C) make adjustments.

Our coaching staff, on gameday, is easily the worst staff I've ever seen.

Maybe I was blessed with the Chiefs being good for my entire life...because they have been. They've always broken my heart when it matters...but for the most part, they've fielded good, competitive teams.

I was ok with rebuilding.

I was ok with it as long as it looked like there was a light at the end of the tunnel.

Watching this team, their philosophy, there is no light.

I've never jumped on the 'omg fire Herm, fire Carl' bandwagon...but please, just do it. I don't want to take a #1 QB and watch him bust...hire someone creative. SOMETHING. Change is good.

Honestly...

It's not like he was missing his holes...there were no holes. The Raiders had 9 in the box all game long...they were bringing it because they no we can't pass...the fact they ran for 300 yards on us when their QB was equally as bad as ours (hard to ****ing believe) is simply the most embarrassing moment of my life as a Chiefs fan.

It definitely does ... say something, that is. But what, exactly, Mr. DaneMcCloud? That's the question. It might say, for example, that the no-huddle/shotgun offense had the faiders in a different defense than they'd played previously. Then again, it might say that Thiggy was damn lucky he didn't get one of those previous wild rocks picked for six the other way. Or, it might say that the faiders remain one of the most consistent teams in the entire NFL when it comes to committing defensive penalties just when you need them most or that our offense is more effective when LJ is sitting his ass on the bench. Of course, it might also say that Thiggy is the man and Darling's 4th quarter catches are the answer to all our prayers.

I think, however, it actually says that even a blind acorn can fall right square into a deaf squirrel's mouth on occasion.

We agree that CP and Herm have to go, but I would rather have a HC that is Offensive minded than Defensive minded.

I don't care what side of the ball the HC comes from aslong as he competent enough to understand talent, gameplans and doesn't handcuff either side of the ball.

There's a reason a guy like Bill Belicheck is successful, it's because frankly he coaches with common sense, he has a D background but when he has the best offense in the game he goes with that.

I don't give a flying **** WHO was the official HC of that 99 Rams team - they were getting a ring. Christ, Herm Edwards would have won a ring with that group, because the HC was nothing but a front man. The coordinators and the FO pulled all the strings.

Marty was a reincarnation of Chuck Knox. Great regular season, couldn't coach against REAL talent in the playoffs.

So, when did the Chiefs actually WIN?

K, so we have sucked for the last 20 years, BFD, the past is the past for a reason, you learn and move forward... Unless your Carl.

Herm has went 9-7, 4-12, (possibly) 4-12 or worse this year and I have doubts we win much next year as well so say 6-10 at best...

Where does that leave us? a below shit team with average talent for the next guy?

It was time for DV to leave when he left, and originally I figured it would also be Carl's last HC as well, so I figured it doubly good. I mean really, when you hire the person whom you consider the best HC in the league, and you are not able to get it done, it should be time for you to step down.

To make matters worse, he brought in Herm, the man who is known for killing QB and wearing down RB's, along with poor time management and inability to adjust for an opponent. Yeah, for us.

Fish,
It wouldn't be so bad if this coaching staff didn't appear to be so clueless. I knew the rebuild would be tough, but man oh man did we look horrible yesterday.

Frankly, I liked DV but knew he was not the answer. He gave us a highly productive offense but could not get the right people in place to give us a respectable defense. I was somewhat disappointed when he retired, but at the same time excited to see some fresh new blood that could take the team to the next level.

Then they hired Herm. I was kind of luke warm on that hire. Optimistically, I was thinking he had taken the Jets to the playoffs a couple of times. On the flip side, I was thinking Herm has not been very good with the Jets lately. All the negative things people were saying about his clock management, hiring Hackett, injury issues. All of those things must have some truth to them. Sure enough, that is exactly what has been happening here. :banghead: We need fresh, new blood here, from CP all the way down to Herm and his staff.

The problem is that some people (and I emphasize "some" while including myself in that number) are concerned that this may not really be an actual "rebuild" thing, Mr. KC Fish. It may be, unfortunately, just a bunch of young guys drafted by a dumbass coach who is teaching them how to lose and take a lot of ribbing for joining the worst team ever to play the game of football.

Perhaps it will all work out in the end and Herm can, in fact, turn this group into winners and dial up the gameday coaching to an highly competitive level. If not, however, all we can do is wait for the next HC and hope that the lasting damage caused by Herm is minimal. When you feel that way, watching a coaching effort like yesterday's is very flustrating and not a whole lot okay.

Your right the season is going exactly as expected... after 3 years as the Chiefs HC, we have nothing that shows we have a compitent HC that can field a solid gameday game plan or shows that he can devleop young talent that he drafts..

You know, all common sense aside, I don't see any redeeming attributes in a showing like we had today. Sure, a loss is a loss, but I'd rather see the Chiefs score more than one touchdown every couple of games or so. Frankly, if I had my 'druthers', I'd like to see the Chiefs return as a threat to score a touchdown everytime they had the ball on offense.

There's no shame in scoring, gentlemen. Did DV sell the soul of the franchise to build his offense? Sure. Did he struggle putting a competitive defense on the field? Absolutely. But which team is more fun to watch and capable of making it all the way? The one that could put 40 on you without breaking a sweat, or the one that can't convert a first down? The one that gave up 350 yards rushing, or the one that gave up 300?

In my heart, I know that the two goals of fielding a fearsome offense and a team that isn't populated with Methuselah's elder brothers aren't mutually exclusive. Alternatively, neither is the notion of a team comprised of young, ascending players and one that can move the chains more than 4 times in 60 minutes.

Our coaching staff, on gameday, is easily the worst staff I've ever seen.

Maybe I was blessed with the Chiefs being good for my entire life...because they have been. They've always broken my heart when it matters...but for the most part, they've fielded good, competitive teams.

DV was all about proving himself to be the architect of that StL SB team, and not Martz. He & Saunders came in wanting to prove themselves as the offensive geniouses[sic]. Sure, they set a shitload of records, but ultimately did not win a damned thing. Not ONE playoff win?! With all of that firepower? Total blueballs. And, on top of that, left an ancient run-down team for the next poor bastard to clean up. The drafting by DV & company = legendary for its incompetence.

The first two years were kind of weird, though, Mr. Reerun_KC. You know, Herm trying to cobble together a squad out of DV's leftovers, some FA guys, and a couple of rookies. I'm trying to base my dislike of Herm solely on the results of "The Plan". What we're seeing now is 100% Herm and Herm alone.

I'm still trying to figure out why he hired Gailey, for example. If part of "The Plan" was to dumb down the offense to the point that the enemy D can anticipate every play we run, I don't see the need for a guy like that. Solari was doing fine in that respect. So far as Gun is concerned, we all know that Gun will do what he's told so I can see why he's still around. Clearly, our new defense is an all Herm deal, too. As for special teams, honestly, that looks like a situation that Herm has, basically, just ignored so far. Time will tell, but to date, Herm is living up to the reputation described to us by the Jets fans. If that's the case, there will be plenty of reasons to despise the guy, but it won't have to be because he walked into DV's mess.

Look with a better GM to support him DV could have succeeded here. No one can take anything away from him as far as offense. We have never seen a better one in over 40 years. The problem was D and I don't think he was far off to improving it enough to get the Chiefs over the hump. This is a team sport all the way from the Front Office through the Coaching Staff and the players. they all have to work together to make it work.

The problem with rebuilding is you have to have a fabulous Front Office and Coaching staff for it to be effective. We don't and so all this rebuilding is being done in vain.

Hopefully Clark will realize this and stop the bus and let out the entire FO and CS on the curb sooner rather than later.

This season is over! We are already guaranteed a Top 3 draft choice next year. This in itself tells you who was a better HC and was much better to succeed here. No one at this time of the season had already thrown in the towel when DV was the HC.

That's certain, Mr. KC Fish.

For my part, I can only base my opinions on what I see (or what Lenny tells me). And, I'm not seeing much in this fabulous, new, simplified offense that infuses my weary soul with hope that Herm knows what the hell he's doing.

The board has argued this whole "execution" vs. "predictability" question into the ground. People can say what they will, but I still fail to understand any rationale that has been stated so far that justifies what appears to be our current approach to gameplanning and playcalling. To me, it looks like it's hampering our players - not helping them. Plus (and setting aside the injury portion of the question and focusing solely on the insult for a moment), the idea that our players can't execute a simple running play seems absurd. It's executing the same running play over and over that's difficult - not because they can't do it - but because the enemy knows full well that it's coming.

So, big picture-wise, is this approach to offense going to develop our young players faster in the long run? I have no idea because I can't see the future. But, from where I sit, right now I'd have to say, "no".

Look with a better GM to support him DV could have succeeded here.

No. You clearly don't get it.

Peterson did EVERYTHING that Vermeil wanted. Trade for Trent Green. Trade for Willie Roaf. Draft defensive tackles with every high pick. Brought in veteran receivers, running backs, linebackers, cornerbacks and quarterbacks.

The only thing that Peterson didn't do for Vermeil was draft Tyler Brayton.

Peterson chose LJ and we're all too familiar with Vermeil's treatment of LJ, which IMO, was downright embarrassing.

The reason that Vermeil "succeeded" in St. Louis is because John Shaw FORCED Trent Green, Marshall Faulk and especially Mike Martz onto the sqaud. Drafting Tory Holt didn't hurt either. Oh yeah, and a guy named Kurt Warner.

This season is over! We are already guaranteed a Top 3 draft choice next year. This in itself tells you who was a better HC and was much better to succeed here. No one at this time of the season had already thrown in the towel when DV was the HC.

The Chiefs were guaranteed a top three pick before the season started. There is not a legitimate, young starting right guard or right tackle. The linebacker situation is in disarray. Defensive end was a huge question mark with the departure of Jared Allen. There's only ONE proven WR on the entire squad and as many of us surmised, there's no franchise QB on the roster.

This team was destined to be 3-13 at best on July 27th.

But he is building a Super Bowl championship type team. Now he wont coach it but the building blocks are there. Now quit bringing this attention type whore threads out about your man love about a coach who was more flash than anything.

The building blocks are not there at all!

I'd like someone tell explain to me, in detail, how exactly the Chiefs are to succeed with a right guard and right tackle who wouldn't be starting for any other team in the NFL (and probably not even be able to make a roster), 1 WR, not even an average QB (let alone franchise), and two linebackers that shouldn't be on the field.

Our drafts were the ultimate suck well before DV came to town. Some time back, there was a giant flurry of analysis on the Planet that lasted about a week or so on this very subject. It was completely obvious that, under Carl, the Chiefs have one of the worst (if not the worst) draft record in the league based on how many players actually made football a career (either with the Chiefs or with someone else).

The fact is that the draft where we picked DT was arguably the last really decent draft we had until DV got here and we picked up guys like Allen (a fluke) and LJ and DJ. When you look at it that way, DV's drafts were an enormous improvement. They still sucked, but they were much, much better than we'd had for practically 20 years.

Not going to argue about DV, dude has been gone for 3 years now, and yes Carl and DV's win a superbowl now philosophy didnt help much.

But there are things called FA and the Draft.. it seems to me if you want to rebuild it takes the right mix of both to build a solid club...

Herm has had 3 years now and we have some marginal talent, a few good players and one great that herm has drafted, But he has failed to address this OL in 3 years, Now how is that still DV's fault? Remember FA and Draft....

Chiefs had a few good drafts in the 90's. 1996 was pretty good - it could have been better (Dawkins and Milloy instead of Woods and Tongue) but it turned out pretty well. We never had a major coup but we got talent out of the 1992 through 1994 drafts.

Herm is great. He's got a good percentage of fans still believing everything is somebody elses fault. Bad acquisitions, bad decisions it's all Peterson. Everything was forced on poor Herm who didn't have a choice. He had to coach the Chiefs and had to listen to everything Peterson told him.

I'm still in the school of thought that the offensive playcalling is more a product of the talent than vice-versa, particularly the offensive line, which is horrible right now. I'm not sure there's a coordinator that could get anything meaningful out of the starting 5 we're throwing out there. It's kind of like how Saunders' offense was one thing in 2001, and something else in 2002. The difference was the line.

The only thing I don't get is why they're so dead-set towards running on first down. That makes zero sense to me. But on the other hand, as conservative as they were, they still got sacked 5 times yesterday.

And it's going to take some time for a roster this young to 'get it'. Week 2 is a little early to panic for me. If there's no change by, say, week 12, I'd be more apt to entertain the idea.

Either way, I'm still glad DV is gone. The franchise was going nowhere but down, much like in 1998 when Marty left.

But others will argue that Herms plan is in full swing and we will have a superbowl offense really soon.

fair enough, you answered all the questions I had... Herm is/was a hand puppet for Carl, that is why he was hired.

So basically, you are saying we can forget the previous spineless Herm years, and start fresh now? So now we are seeing "the plan" in action?

That's what I'm expecting.

Dungy was given 5 years in Tampa Bay. Lovie was given 3 years in Chicago. Dungy was given a long leash in Indy as well.

It takes a little time to completely turn over a roster with youth. If the talent is in place in 2010 but Herm can only win 4 games, it's time to hit the road.

But he was given an impossible task in 2006 and Peterson exerted his will for 2007.

It's Herm's time to prove that his way is the right way.

Are you disputing the fact that there were bad personnel decisions? If so, how could expect ANYONE to win with the shit he was given in 2006 & 2007?

I know I'm not a "Herm supporter" by any means, but I am a supporter of giving the guy a fair shot. Because I think he got himself into a bad situation coming here, and I think he should get a chance to work his way out of it.

The thing is, his perceived weaknesses are magnified because the talent on the team has been so bad. Other coaches make the same kind of mistakes but win despite it, because at the end of the day, their players are just better than their opponents'. But maybe I'm blinded by my belief that players win and lose games much more often than coaches or coordinators do.

'course, they lost Croyle during that game, and then Huard early yesterday. I'm sorry Air Thigpen wasn't aggessive enough or impressive enough for you. I mean, the 3rd team QB with no NFL experience really out to be out there chucking it around the field. Pussies!

Why oh why weren't we doing 7 step drops and throwing the ball 40 yards?? All they had to do was just call those plays. Nevermind that Thigpen was hitting Oakland defenders in the chest with the ball while no red jersey was within 10 yards....

I'd say Parcells knows as much about the O as Herm, in that they're both 'run the basics, execute and don't make mistakes' types on that side of the ball.
Seriously, the Giants were a great champion, but that O was a smidge better than Marty-ball with the iron mind of Simms making the difference [much like Montana did for a while].
And the Patriots were run heavy as well.

Garrett is miles ahead of everyone except the Pats organization in offensive preparation.

No. That was sarcasm.

So many people blame Edwards for "failing" in New York, even though he was "handed" a team built by Parcells. My response to that is this: If Parcells "built" such a great team, how did it completely fall apart in three years?

Furthermore, Carl Peterson is the GM of the Chiefs, not Herm Edwards. Until this year, the Chiefs hadn't drafted a first day offensive lineman since John Tait in 1999.

And you do?

I certainly know more than you do. Which isn't to say that I know much of anything, it's just easy to know more than someone who doesn't have the first clue what he's talking about.

To wit: how about a few weeks ago when you were telling us how Herm left NY because "the NY media was too hard on him". Even the most diehard green-bleeding Herm-hating Jets fan wouldn't agree with that. If anything, they would tell you the complete opposite. They'd tell you that Herm, even though he was horrible and an embarrassment to professional sports and all that, somehow got a free pass from the media for it all.

Or, by all means, keep telling us how Herm's lines in NY were just as bad as ours is now. Our current line has gotten LJ a whopping yards-per-carry average of 2.8. And that includes his fluke 22 yard run against New England the other week. Remove that run and it looks a lot worse.

The offensive line Herm had in NY the year old-ass Curtis Martin won the rushing title ('04) gave Martin a YPC average of 4.6. The Jets overall had a YPC of 4.5. Know what our overall YPC average was that same year? Back in the glory days of Roaf and Shields and T-Rich and Saunders and Vermeil? 4.6. Yep, that's right. We averaged all of ONE TENTH OF A YARD better than Herm's Jets.

Even in '05 when the Jets tanked, and Kevin Mawae and 1 or 2 of their other starting linemen went down for the season, they still had a YPC of 3.5. You think LJ wouldn't take 3.5 right now and run with it like he stole something?

But please, keep right on impressing us with your vast knowledge on these topics.

Forgive Reerun Rock. He's an idiot. It's not his fault really. The guy is just plain dumb. You see it in every post with poor grammar and the inability to spell the simplest words. He apparently thinks everybody on the board was enamored with the hiring of Herm. I'm betting there were a dozen tops.

Herm's hire wasn't met with a much of anything by this board. (Okay, GoChiefs was happy) Why? Because we have all seen these type of hires before. One of Carl's old friends from his glory days in Philly where the glory was just a little greater than what he's achieved here. Yes, they got the Eagles TO the SB. They got the beatdown. In a big way.

But if you go back and read the stories from SI, you'll read just how uptight Vermiel and Carl were in those days. That SB was in NOLA. The Raiders were out all night partying and living it up, while DV was doing bedchecks, locking down the players and generally being a somewhat younger version of the crybaby old man he became after he retired and unretired and then.... retired again. Just like carl did here. Remember when he canceled the players radio shows the week before the Jan. playoff loss to the Donx? Same thing.

Back to the hiring issue.

After Dv we get the one of the CB's from that team that Carl can keep in check. There was little sense in getting upset about the hire. We had the Jets trolls tell us how bad Herm was. They were too stupid understand how bad Herm was when HE WAS HIRED. BY TERRY BRADWAY! Who was? That's right, one of Carl's cronies and the architect of the demolition of the J.E.T.S. They were too stupid to realize WE had hoodwinked them years before into taking one of the guys who had been in charge of scouting and player personnel for the Chiefs! And we know how well our drafts were with those knuckleheads at the helm.

Dumb****s thet they are, they laughed at us for hiring Herm. But the joke was on them from the beginning.


I think.

Anyway, the bottom is this: Carl hired Herm and there wasn't a damn thing a fan could do about it. This is the GM that after Marty resigned, hired Mr. aviator glasses, fired him over the internet, and then hired DV, who had been hanging around Arrowhead as a paid consultant, and then begged DV to fire the DC only to have DV re-hire Mr. aviator glasses, who WAS NEVER GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL because the emphasis was on the offensive side of the ball and all the cussing in the world wasn't going to make Greg Wesley and William Bartee NFL players. And who drafted those shit players?

I only know for certain that I'm not buying a single Chiefs product until this regime is finished.

F this team, GM, franchise, owner, players, league, NFLE, GU, Boras. All of them can go to hell.

Forgive Reerun Rock. He's an idiot. It's not his fault really. The guy is just plain dumb. You see it in every post with poor grammar and the inability to spell the simplest words. He apparently thinks everybody on the board was enamored with the hiring of Herm. I'm betting there were a dozen tops.

Herm's hire wasn't met with a much of anything by this board. (Okay, GoChiefs was happy) Why? Because we have all seen these type of hires before. One of Carl's old friends from his glory days in Philly where the glory was just a little greater than what he's achieved here. Yes, they got the Eagles TO the SB. They got the beatdown. In a big way.

But if you go back and read the stories from SI, you'll read just how uptight Vermiel and Carl were in those days. That SB was in NOLA. The Raiders were out all night partying and living it up, while DV was doing bedchecks, locking down the players and generally being a somewhat younger version of the crybaby old man he became after he retired and unretired and then.... retired again. Just like carl did here. Remember when he canceled the players radio shows the week before the Jan. playoff loss to the Donx? Same thing.

Back to the hiring issue.

After Dv we get the one of the CB's from that team that Carl can keep in check. There was little sense in getting upset about the hire. We had the Jets trolls tell us how bad Herm was. They were too stupid understand how bad Herm was when HE WAS HIRED. BY TERRY BRADWAY! Who was? That's right, one of Carl's cronies and the architect of the demolition of the J.E.T.S. They were too stupid to realize WE had hoodwinked them years before into taking one of the guys who had been in charge of scouting and player personnel for the Chiefs! And we know how well our drafts were with those knuckleheads at the helm.

Dumb****s thet they are, they laughed at us for hiring Herm. But the joke was on them from the beginning.


I think.

Anyway, the bottom is this: Carl hired Herm and there wasn't a damn thing a fan could do about it. This is the GM that after Marty resigned, hired Mr. aviator glasses, fired him over the internet, and then hired DV, who had been hanging around Arrowhead as a paid consultant, and then begged DV to fire the DC only to have DV re-hire Mr. aviator glasses, who WAS NEVER GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL because the emphasis was on the offensive side of the ball and all the cussing in the world wasn't going to make Greg Wesley and William Bartee NFL players. And who drafted those shit players?

I only know for certain that I'm not buying a single Chiefs product until this regime is finished.

F this team, GM, franchise, owner, players, league, NFLE, GU, Boras. All of them can go to hell.

Sorry RR.

It's a little frustrating reading the same post from you every day. We know Herm is a terrible coach. We know you know Herm is a terrible coach. We know that you we know Herm is terrible coach.

I never said anything about your skills as a pilot. You're probably great. You simply don't spell worth a shit.

You're a clueless moron.

Dispute it then.

There is no comparison when DV was our HC and what we have now. I will take the former right now. We would be having alot better time now instead of thinking about next year's draft after the second game of the regular season.

I think you are the clueless moron! :D

Our drafts were the ultimate suck well before DV came to town. Some time back, there was a giant flurry of analysis on the Planet that lasted about a week or so on this very subject. It was completely obvious that, under Carl, the Chiefs have one of the worst (if not the worst) draft record in the league based on how many players actually made football a career (either with the Chiefs or with someone else).

The fact is that the draft where we picked DT was arguably the last really decent draft we had until DV got here and we picked up guys like Allen (a fluke) and LJ and DJ. When you look at it that way, DV's drafts were an enormous improvement. They still sucked, but they were much, much better than we'd had for practically 20 years.

Didn't DV draft Colquitt? Probably our best offensive weapon in the Herm era.

He hasn't failed to address this OL in 3 years, unless you just simply haven't been paying attention.

Didn't DV address that need when he brought Roaf here. Obviously he understood the foudation of a good O is a good OL!

As bad as the defense was....it was getting better.

One thing that was for certain. With DV, I always knew we had a good chance in winning the game.

With Herm, I feel we need a football miracle just to even score during the game.

We had the best offense in the league in 2003 and had 9 pro bowlers and guess what DV did with that...lost at home in our first playoff game. Not exactly what I am looking for in a head coach. Neither DV nor Herm is the answer.

I'll take losing to Indy in a playoff game in a thriller over watching the Raiders hand us our ass at home any day

Why? If you don't win the Super Bowl, neither is worth anything. And we didn't just lose, we set a historical precedent by not stopping them a single time in the game at home. How embarrassing and insulting to our fans.
I'd rather have a coach who is building us to a Super Bowl run, and DV wasn't doing that because he was neglecting defense the whole time.

Just in you don't have HC or a GM who is building us to a SB run.

You know, if Joan Rivers comes to my house and does a strip tease, I'm going to want to wash out my eyes with battery acid.

If Cameron Manheim comes to my house and does a strip tease, I am still going to want to wash my eyes with battery acid.

That's how I feel about Dick Crymeil and Herman ****ing Edwards.

They both suck.

The suckage ain't exactly the same, but they are still ****ing ugly and make me want to wash out my eyes with battery acid.

True, defense was greatly lacking, but Dick built a much better team that Herm has or WILL!!!!!

Come on. the Jets were THANKING US for taking him.

I know things suck and I think we all expected it considering the youth of the team and all, but seriously???? we lost against the laughing stock of the NFL. Where does that put us now?

dick put us in a MUCH closer position to go somewhere than Herm will.

Hopefully I'll eat my words, but I doubt it.

For me, it's not so much that we lost to the laughing stock of the NFL. It's the way in which we lost. They are a joke and yet they made us look like the joke.

I do believe Herm is decent at drafting young players. I just wonder about the development and coaching.
