I fucking hate Dick Vermeil. He led this franchise on its path to where it is currently.

Instead of drafting Drew Brees, he traded for a fragile Trent Green that lasted only 5 years. Instead of drafting BPA, they constantly reached for players that were busts. Instead of hiring competent defensive coordinators, he hired friends.

The drafts under Vermeil are the exact reason why the Chiefs have issues up and down the roster. He fucking wasted everyone's time, while earning $4 million a year.

Fuck him.

Right - I'm numb.

In 2005, when Jordan Black lost that game in Buffalo for us, I was MAD.

Blew a double-digit lead at home to Philly - PISSED.

Now...I KNOW we're gonna lose. I want to lose 77-2, and the 2 to come from an intentional safety by Pitt at the end of the game, just so they can pin the Chiefs deep again. I want Matt Cassel to throw 5 TDs...to PITTSBURG.

I never missed watching a game when Vermeil was joke. Now, I don't give a fuck. Chiefs football used to be an event. Clayton's thread on the Chiefs being the 3rd worst team of all-time -- just about every year the Chiefs were in the top 10 in the league in power rankings with Vermeil. I hate to say it -- they were just unlucky.

Vermeil was the last decent head coach this franchise had. I'll take him anyday of the week over the shitty head coaches this franchise has hired over the past 7 years.

At least his teams were exciting to watch. You know with Vermeil the Chiefs offensively competed with anybody in the league. And ALWAYS ranked at the top of the league. **** we could only dream of having offenses like that now.

Yeah we know his defenses couldn't stop anybody and its not like this current defense is any better now.

If he had a defenisve guru at the time maybe the Chiefs would of competed with the Pats? The only thing I didn't like about Vermeil's teams was that they were too old and that force the Chiefs to rebuild for a period of time. So I agree with you there.

Hate Vermeil all you want, he had an offense, something we haven't seen since he left, outside of the one year that Weis was there. If they would have fired Haley and kept Weis maybe the team would have turned that corner. Haley was piss poor, Crennel is a likeable guy, but he doomed himself by making the same mistake Haley did, he thought he could be the HC and the DC at the same time. Can't happen, the team loses with a HC with split duties.

I'll never forget sitting in Arrowhead with my son while Manning and the Colts were only stopped by the clock at the end of the 1st half and ended a great season with a loss! Yeah, his tears when the ass-clown who engineered the only only-one-drive-didn't-end up-in-the-other-team-scoring game I've ever seen being fired were awesome... But he has wine to sell that's just AWESOME!

I don't see how anyone can criticize Vermeil in the draft. They sold out for free agency. That was their draft. They had no intention of drafting well.

This regime, it's garbage. It's horrendous. I've never seen a regime draft as poorly as Vermeil and acquire leftovers Iike Steadman.

It's gotta be Carl all the way down the line. Notice how Vermeil got run out of town but Gunther stayed behind and was forced on Herm too.

And then when he left, Gunther threw both of them under the bus and complained about their philosophies being different. It was what it was... Carl went all-in on a last shot at winning it all. Except when DV left, he hung around for some reason and took the fall.

I'm with you. Holmes has good numbers here. He was a patient back with good vision.

The Chiefs under Vermeil were a "Get Rich Quick" scheme.

And it failed miserably.

I will say this, Pioli wishes he could do what they did with that offense. I'm not sure anyone in the last two decades has done anything close. They traded for a backup QB, got a RB off the scrapheap, traded a midround pick for a washed up LT, converted a FB to LG, signed another team's backup center, grabbed a castoff WR from a division rival, converted a midget college RB, and created one of the best offenses of all time.

I came to appreciate Green playing within his abilities. But that first year was horrific. Green was another Holmes-like beneficiary of that offensive line, that system. Made him a rich man too. Shows that having a team and coaches who can play to your strengths and hide your weaknesses works. That staff gets credit for that, for sure. I wish we had some of that today but as good as that offense was, the defense was twice as bad. Probably even worse than today's defense.

Many players were beneficiaries of a great offensive line. The Skins of the late 80's and Cowboys of early 90's were some of the best lines ever. Aikman was basically Trent Green. Emmit Smith, Priest Holmes.

Many players were beneficiaries of a great offensive line. The Skins of the late 80's and Cowboys of early 90's were some of the best lines ever. Aikman was basically Trent Green. Emmit Smith, Priest Holmes.

There's some truth to that. That's why this is team game. That's why I don't give a rip about individual awards. Bring me a Lombardi.

Welcome to ChiefsPlanet, where everything that's good sucks, every Super Bowl winning coach is lucky, every 1st round QB is Aaron Rodgers, and cornerback is the most important position on the defense. If you've been here longer than 5 minutes you've seen it in action.

Most of us married supermodels and our mistresses are younger supermodels with bigger racks. What do you expect?

Jesus, we were 5th and 1st, in offense and defense (respectively) that year. And that was with Gannon and Grtard splitting the starting duties. Our rushing offense must have been awesome because neither of these guys had a QB rating of over 79.

Giving a 1st round pick for a player who has no other suitors is not a solid move. You want to give him credit for a solid trade then Roaf is the one to talk about.

Roaf was one of the better trades in Chiefs history.

But, you don't consider Trent Green a solid move?
C'mon. The guy gave the Chiefs 5 productive seasons, made two probowls, was unquestionably one of the better leaders on the ball club. In fact, I think Trent Green could be ranked up there as one of the better Chiefs QBs in history.I'm speaking directly from a longevity and productivity standpoint. I understand that giving up a first round pick is a lot for a 31 year old QB at the time, but when that first round pick turns out to be Damione Lewis, and your QB produces consistently for 5 seasons, makes probowls, that is win and without a doubt a very solid move by the Chiefs.

Me, too.

Regardless of what the critics say (justified to some extent, or not), that was one hell of an offense. Once they finally figured out Saunders' playbook, they rarely disappointed on the field. Unstoppable in the redzone.

I think that Carl and Uncle Dick both realized what they were doing. The idea was to "win now" and to do that, they had to go the free agent route because they needed experienced veterans.

The problem, of course, was that it meant we wound up with an old team that was ready to retire after the run was over.

I can see why they took that approach, though. The Chiefs hadn't won anything in a long time and the culture needed the shock of actually going all the way ... or close to it, at least. The Chiefs' losing mentality had permeated the entire franchise. Uncle Dick gave us that opportunity.

But they blew it. Even after catching lightning in a bottle with Priest, they still couldn't field a defense worth a damn (as we know) and it created the need to rebuild the roster from scratch. Yet, even that would have been palatable had they actually succeeded in winning the Super Bowl.

But we're now staring down the barrel of another entire decade of rebuild after rebuild (2003 - 2012). Had it not been for that, I could forgive them. After all the sparkle and flash, not only did we receive nothing in return, but it cost us ... an overly high cost, as it turned out.

You hate Vermeil, so let that rest. Just how many playoff games have the Chiefs won in the past 40 years? I believe, I could be wrong now, but I don't think so, you can count them on one hand.

Hate Vermeil all you want, he had an offense, something we haven't seen since he left, outside of the one year that Weis was there. If they would have fired Haley and kept Weis maybe the team would have turned that corner. Haley was piss poor, Crennel is a likeable guy, but he doomed himself by making the same mistake Haley did, he thought he could be the HC and the DC at the same time. Can't happen, the team loses with a HC with split duties.

You better hope God allows stupid people into heaven. God bless you.

I ****ing hate Dick Vermeil. He led this franchise on its path to where it is currently.

Instead of drafting Drew Brees, he traded for a fragile Trent Green that lasted only 5 years. Instead of drafting BPA, they constantly reached for players that were busts. Instead of hiring competent defensive coordinators, he hired friends.

The drafts under Vermeil are the exact reason why the Chiefs have issues up and down the roster. He ****ing wasted everyone's time, while earning $4 million a year.

**** him.

Fire Pioli and the Patriot cronies. Bring in a bright young coaching staff who has their shit together. Draft Geno at #1, trade back into the first round to select Tavon Austin, and re-sign Bowe and Albert.

With this offensive line talent under a coach who knows his ass from his penis, Jamaal Charles, and the guys we signed added, the product will be an offense that puts Dick Vermeil's to fucking shame.

The trade for Trent Green would have been a colossal success if we had followed it up with taking Aaron Rodgers in 2005.

It wasn't five years. It was four.

He was piss poor in 2001 and much better from 2002-2004. By 2006, he was shot.

I said as much and if it weren't for that opening day concussion in 2006, Trent probably would have played another 2 years. My point is that if you can get a few years of ELITE qb play for a late first round pick, its not terrible usage of that selection. IMO the problem was Carl passing on Aaron Rodgers when Trent was already 35 years old.

Not me.

That first year was a learning process, so Green was only "elite" (not what I'd call it, but that would only be arguing definitions) for 4 years.

That's a short window.

I would not spend a first round pick on a guy that gives me that short a window.

Oh, come on.

You can't say that the Chiefs would have "reached" for Brees while at the same time wished they had taken Rodgers.

The fact of the matter is that they failed on both but Brees was the more obvious choice.

He would have excelled with Vermeil, Saunders and Holmes and it wouldn't have cost the Chiefs a dime.

He MIGHT have, sure.

The fact is that Trent Green was the second most productive passer from 2002-2005 and that kind of production is worth a pick like that.

Its just a shame that 2 things didnt happen during that span

1) we didn't make a legit push to fix that defense
2) we didn't take a legit qb prospect that could take over when Trent eventually hung em up.

Aaron Rodgers went 9 picks after we took DJ...Brees went 20 picks after the pick we sent off for Trent Green and didnt do shit his first few years, either and that lead the Chargers to taking another highly picked QB to replace him with.

Shit, Eli Manning didnt want to get picked by SD because of how bad they were after 3 years of Brees (combined with tehir historic ineptitude and his dads personal failures with them)

Who knows how thing could have played out if we took him...?

Considering that most people feel that Vermeil and his staff were offensive geniuses and there was no pressure to "Win Now" back in 2001, I'd venture to guess that his time under Vermeil would have been similar to Trent's, if not unlike Brees tenure in New Orleans.

His lack of success in San Diego clearly falls on Marty's shoulders.

Who do you think San Diego wishes they had at QB these past seven seasons: Brees or Rivers?

There wasn't a pressure to "win now"? They traded a second round pick for a 65 year old coach...

If I have a choice, I take the first round QB in the draft every fucking time, but Im not gonna get pissed because we traded for Green, either. He gave us 4 years of running an elite offense and if CP had taken the steps necessary to build a defense that could compliment that offense, we would have had a real shot at a championship in 2003 or 2005...then made the fatal flaw of not taking the gift of having Aaron Rodgers fall into his lap.

Also, didn't you just get done telling me how Dick was a fraud and how Martz was the real mind...now you think Brees would have developed under Vermiel?
