When Herman Edwards was fired by the Chiefs on Friday, he said he was going to choose between working as a defensive backs coach, taking time off or trying his hand as a TV analyst. It looks like the bright lights of television have won out.

Adam Schefter reports that there is mutual interest between networks and Edwards, and all signs are that he値l be spending the 2009 season in front of the camera.

It seems like the right move for Edwards at this point. He痴 a good talker with strong opinions and he値l have producers helping him with clock management. A third shot as a head coach may not be in the cards for Edwards, but if he does well on TV he could find himself in the mix at some point down the road.

I don't understand why anyone would want him. I hate his manner of speaking....maybe I'm weird, but he always sounds dumb to me.

Hes made for some interesting sound bytes over the years.

This would probably work out well for him.

I don't see how doing well on TV merits one a head coaching job.

He’s a good talker with strong opinions and he’ll have producers helping him with clock management.

At least you can make out what Herm is saying. He may say some stupid off the wall things, but he can enunciate.

"RUMOR"

Chris Mortenson of ESPN vehemently denies there has been any contact with Herm "****ing" Edwards with the networks, will never BE any contact, and definately will NOT be spending time in front of the camera. :shake:

I agree this is probably the best job for Herm. He loves to talk football and you can actually understand what he is saying unlike Thannon Tharpe.

Trust me...it's not just you.

"Alright, so we didn't score and that's bad. But the other team didn't score much either and that's good. But we lost and that is bad too."

Sounds like a blubbering idiot, I was always embarrassed when I heard him speaking on SportsCenter.

If Emmitt Smiff can get away with saying "Eli Manning has been given the rice of passage," then it is perfectly acceptable for Herm to say "flustrated."

Heh, most people here complain that media types look over the chiefs and spend al the time talking about Farvre, Brady, TO, Dallas, Pats, etc. etc. etc.

Now, when there is a chance that someone close to the chiefs that would possibly have some interest in talking about them on the national stage, everyone isn't interested in hearing it because they love hating him so much because he was part of a team that didn't perform in a way that your candy coated dreams thought it should.


I am one that thnks Herm wasn't a huge part of the problems in KC, those were building up over the last half decade, and he was just here when it ended. If he ends up on CBS or wherever I would make an effort to watch him there in the hopes that he might say soemthing of interest about the team I choose to be a fan of....quirky phrases or made up words be damned.

This will be our opportunity to see just how well-versed he is as a coach. You have to talk in generalities when you're in pre- and post-game press conferences, because you don't want to give away any secrets about your coverages and offensive schemes that your next opponent might be able to use. Now he can break things down using specifics if he chooses. If he still talks in vague Hermspeak, well ... his firing will be further justified and he won't be on TV very long.

Good for Herm. I'll enjoy watching him in the NFL Network, which has the best NFL coverage far and away. I can't stand listening to the bozos on CBS & Fox. Too much fluff.

Hate Herm if you will but I admire him for pointing this franchise in the right direction for the first time in nearly 40 years. The Chiefs have needed an enema for more than a decade and thanks for Herm, this franchise is back on track.

He's certainly not the best game-day coach around but he deserves props for changing the culture and the vision of the Chiefs franchise.

I dont really want him, but we should have drawn up a trade, Cowher for Herm, and if they throw in camera man #1, they can have Dick Curl.

Too late now though.

What makes you think Herm would want to discuss a team that he failed miserably trying to coach, and got fired from?
