I'd be shocked if any of them did, outside Herm or Carl working in some bogus job in the league office. And I am not talking in the current position, I am talking at any capacity.

There's a reason Gunther went from DC to HC to a positions coach. He's never done anything (and certainly nothing in the past decade) to earn the belief that Carl Peterson had in him.

Herm just isn't that good a coach. He's had a couple shots at it and did the same thing Norv Turner and Dave Wannstedt and a bunch of other assistants/coordinator-turned-coaches have done. Namely, taken a playoff team, dismantled it, and left it worse off when they left.

Wow...that was too easy for Buffalo...

If the Broncos lose this they're going to get demolished next week at San Diego...they'll be carrying a lot of "we shouldn't be in this position" with them.

It will be a fun game with fights and lots of crying from Cutler...

I don't know about Gun, he'll have to be a position coach somewhere. Herm will get a job somewhere. If Norv Turner and Wade Phillips can get jobs again... Herm's got a better head coaching resume than either of those guys.... he could probably at least get an asst. HC job somewhere.

Turner has had stints of being a very successful OC between his stints as HC. Herm has no available fall-back skill to rehabilitate his reputation. He's done.

No post that shows Gun even the smallest amount of respect can go unchallenged. Gun sucks balls. We can only hope some dumbass gives him a job becuase their defense would suck and we would have a chance to beat them. He is the most over rated piece of crap coach in the NFL.

I think he's historically done a fair on defense. His tenure in NY gets remembered as a lot worse than it was because of what's happening here. And that's all people really care about, but if he was doing a job interview, his entire resume isn't nearly as bad as here. He developed far more talent there than here, and he turned a portion of that roster over and brought along several young players like Pennington, Abraham, Ellis. Drafted guys like Cotchery, Moss, Kerry Rhodes, etc.

People are so jaded that's not what they want to hear... but before he came to KC he'd really never been involved in too many bad defenses. He was a part of great defenses in KC, was a coach on Tampa teams that had tremendous defenses, and in NY his defenses were usually pretty good until that final year. And the year after he left, Mangini took that team to the playoffs without that much roster turnover. There are less accomplished people coaching on NFL sidelines.

But that seems to be a common trait in KC, we bring in guys who've had some level of success and it never works out.

It's the same thing as Peter Giunta, I said it at the time. People were OUTRAGED at him, thought there's no way a joker such as him could ever get another job. Despite the fact he had a good resume... not as a DC, but as a DB coach he was always pretty good. But here it was atrocious. Then last year he was a DB coach on the Super Bowl championship team.

Carl will retire into the sunset.

Herm will land an assistant position as soon as he leaves the Chiefs. He will have many offers.

Gun will land a LB coaching job I would think. Hell, the Titans may pick him back up.

There is an outside chance Gun or Herm could be a position coach, but I am not sure anyone would want them nor that they'd take the job.

Imagine you're a GM. You just fired your head coach. And you trot out to your fan base Herm Edwards as his replacement. There'd be riots.

I don't think he'll be a head coach. I said assistant head coach. I don't think it's that crazy, a lot of people like Herm. The NFL can be a good ol boy network anyway. It's the same thing Herm did in Tampa.

Carl - No. He's retired.

Herm - Yes. He'll take a year off and then come back as somebody's DC

Gun - Yes. He'll get a job as somebody's LBer coach somewhere.

Just promoted to the point of incompetence that's all IMO.

Carl is done, though I wouldn't be surprised if he was asked back into somebody's front office in a non-GM role within a few years.

Gun might be a LBs coach, but I'm thinking he's close to finished.

Herm will coach again and he'll probably be a 9-7 coach if given a stable team. For now, I think he'll probably take a DBs coach.

It'd have to be a really good team with a recent championship, or no GM could get away with it. For some reason, if Dungy insisted Herm replace him -- maybe, MAYBE Herm could get it, but I have to think the odds of Herm ever being another NFL head coach are extremely low.

The only thing for Norv was that he lost the incumbent OC and DC.... he is still a tool though.

Herm and Gun will both have jobs in the NFL again. Gun did well at Tennessee with their LBs, and Herm is too well liked by players and coaches around the league. I would be willing to bet that Herm will be head coach again somewhere in the next 5 years or so if he hitches to the right wagon.

CP will get another job if he wants one. As much as we hate him here he is respected in a lot of front offices in this league. Detroit would probably take him, if they would hire Millen (who had never even worked in a front office before) they obviously have very low standards. There are probably a couple of others that would take him. I wouldn't be surprised if he has already received calls.

Getting a job in the NFL is all about connections. All these guys will get another job somewhere. Hell, if Norv Turner can be handed a team for the third time, I wouldn't be shocked if someone gets suckered into hiring Herm again for the lead job. That being said, if Carl wants he can go to someone's front office as an exec, and Gunther can probably land a position as LB coach somewhere, or hell, maybe Fischer will hire him to take over for Schwartz if Schwartz gets a HC gig, since Gun was there for a few years as LB coach. You never know.

Herm is probably best suited as a DB coach, but when you are over 50 and have made the type of jack Herm has made, I don't foresee him looking to take one of those jobs unless he gets an assistant HC/DB's coach job to work with his buddy Lovie Smith or his buddy Tony Dungy...

No it doesnt work, it didnt work in 2006 Maricle from the Heavens season and it wont work now... Its outdated and actuallys stopped working in the early 90's...

I was opposed to the hire because it was more of the same as Marty.. You get nothing in return for you investment.

Carl could of saved his reputation and job for years, IF IF and that is a BIG IF, he would of went out side his and Martys little bush and maked a big impact hire of some young coach...

Herm may not be done here, but if he is... I think he takes a year or two off and then finds his way onto another staff.
