View Full Version : Chiefs Herm Likely Here One More Year...


Mr. Kotter

IMHO :shrug:

I'll try not to say I told you so....but my gut says Herm is back for one more year.

Think about it... :hmmm:

Personally, I hope I'm wrong, but it makes too much sense....if you really think about it (and you ignore Herm's "record"--which could be easy to do, given the state the Chiefs were in when he 'took over'.)

Pioli might be willing to go through one more draft with Herm (his strength) to add to the good base of young players we have. He'll then add a few key FAs with the cap space we have. Then tell Herm, "It's time to pull an Arizona or Baltimore...in 2009. Or you will be working in player personnel next year, or with another team."

No one EXPECTS the rebuild to get done in one year; so Pioli....gives lets Herm sink or swim. He could give him enough rope to hang himself, or Herm shocks the world by turning it around in one season (no "shock" really, given then NFL today.)

If Herm succeeds, Pioli adds to his legend; if Herm fails, Pioli fires him next year...none-the-worse for the one-year probation to Herm. And he gets his pick of a couple of strong head coach candidates sitting out the 2009 season. If anything, it just gives Pioli a "bye" year....to assess the team, the needs, and to develop a plan for 2010.

Thoughts? :shrug:

:hmmm:

My gut is telling me Herm gets the Axe, kind of like my prediction that Clark wants progrees. Lets see if my other prediction comes true which Clark wants a franchise QB this offseason( most likely Stafford if he's there

I HOPE you are right. I'm ready for a COMPLETE house-cleaning, NOW.

As a guy who doesn't think Herm is nearly as bad as people paint him to be, I can't think of a single scenario where Pioli would or should want to keep herm around.

He doesn't deserve someone else's table scraps.

I had that same crazy feeling, coming up with the opinion that Herm really needs to go. It won't benefit the organization, keeping an old hire from the old GM who was honored by a less-than-half empty stadium at his last game. Thinking about how Herm got here in the first place, solidifies it.

Herm will have lots of bucks to ease his pain. Think about that.

The best rebuttal to this crazy talk that I can think of is this: If Pioli were to do as you say he might, then he would be looking out for himself before the team he was just hired to run. I simply don't think that Clark would have hired someone with that kind of selfishness.

Is Herm buying season tickets?

That is the ONLY way he is here next year...

A GM of Pioli's caliber is not going to assocaite with losers like Herm...

Pioli will take one look at Herm and then start laughing. Then he'll say "you think that's funny?" Then he'll start stabbing. Then he'll call out for canoli. Then he'll get on his Wii Fit before disposing of the body.

The mere fact that Herm learned through the media that Pioli got hired and no one consulted him on it is pretty telling IMO.

Yes. And add to that the odd silence out of Arrowhead.

You'd think they would be trying to staunch the gossip about Herm Edwards getting fired that is all over ESPN.

One call to John Clayton or a short press conference would end all of those damaging rumors.

Pioli wouldn't have taken the job unless Herm's departure had been part of the package. The idea the Pioli would want to keep a lame duck Herm Edwards for a year is ludicrous.

Clark said they'd have the decision made by the time a GM was hired.

Herm's fate is sealed, we just don't know 'officially' know it.

There is absolutely no basis for keeping Herm one more year.

None.

You can stretch and slice it anyway you want. He's got a record of 15-33.

Herm had enough rope to hang himself this year. I do not want this loser apart of this orgranization one more day, let alone one more season.

Some of you want to act like this is his first coaching job and he'll improve. He's made the same mistakes OVER and OVER. He will never learn. He will stay the same stubborn ass he's always been.

When is he going to fix the defense?

I pity any team that decides Herm is a good fit for them.

Yep. Plus add to the fact that Steve Spagnulo was in Dallas interviewing yesterday says it all.

they were 10-6 in vermeil's last year. he has turned them into a 2-14 team. this does not seem like progress to me.

He was not in Dallas.

The Giants GM said yesterday that the Chiefs never called to ask permission to speak with Spags.

I've found a song that describes the true fans' desire to keep herm one more year.

<style type="text/css"> <!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } --> </style> Last night I had a crazy dream
A wish was granted just for me
It could be for anything
I didn't ask for money
Or a mansion in Canton, Ohio
I simply wished, for one more year with you

Chorus

One more year
One more dime
One more season, maybe I'd be satisfied
But then again
I know what it would do
Leave me wishing still, for one more year with you

First thing I'd do, is pray a new left tackle
Then I'd unzip my pants
And keep my brain turned off
I'd herm you ever second
say wins don't matter to me
Thats what I'd do, with one more year with you

Chorus

Leave me wishing still, for one more year
Leave me wishing still, for one more year

This

And, Mr. Kotter (can't say just Kotter ... gotta be Mr.), if Pioli keeps Herm it will mean he is not the GM we all thought he is. Herm just hasn't lost games ... it's his coaching ability. He is simply not a SB winning coach. Has to rely upon Curl for basic decision ... nuf said.

Yes, anything is possible but if Herm stay my expectations of this GM goes way down.

Yesterday I was starting to think the same thing. But I've got to believe that when Pioli asks Herm who he wants for his Defensive Coordinator and Herm says Gunther it will be all over.
