On January 22nd Herm Edwards' assessment of the Kansas City Chiefs would have mattered. But today, Herm's opinion that the Chiefs should draft Aaron Curry doesn't actually matter.
When asked about the Chiefs' plans, Herm cited Eugene Monroe as a possibility, but ultimately said "the linebacker" should be the choice (H/T Adam Teicher at the Red Zone):
"The linebacker is a good pick for them," Edwards said. "An offensive lineman is a good pick for them, the kid from Virginia (Eugene Monroe). But if the linebacker is sitting there, he a good player now. He comes in and plays. He’s going to play right away. He’s a heck of a football player."
Saying "the linebacker" brings back some memories...I won't tell you what kind of memories, but let's just say memories.
I just got off the phone with Jon Gruden and Steve Mariucci.* I'm getting something together now and will let you know what they said about the Chiefs and the draft.
As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron. -HL Mencken 1933
