Rufus: Carl is teh awesome!!!

http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/2007/11...and_obscenity/

CALL: [/i]I heard the afternoon [local talk] radio [hosts] – or at least one of them – predicting that Carl Peterson would be gone by next year. Needless to say, I’ve heard it before. Knowing what you know of the likelihood of most of their predictions what do you suppose the chances of that happening?[/i]

RESPONSE: Listening to the opinions on anything Chiefs-related from one or the other of those fellows, I’m reminded of a story about a voter bemoaning an election-day choice of Lyndon Johnson or Richard Nixon, to which Senator Eugene McCarthy is supposed to have replied: “That’s like choosing between vulgarity and obscenity, isn’t it?” At best, listening to what these two yodelers are saying about the Chiefs is like hearing an interpretation of only one spouse’s version of a failed marriage.

Listen for too long and you understand why sports news should never be left to sports talk radio. Whatever remarks either makes about Peterson can be construed simply as wishful thinking on their part since the general manager’s stay in Kansas City lingers over both of their many predictions like an eternal winter.

Peterson’s fronted 13 winning seasons out of the 18 [with one .500 season] he’s been in Kansas City This is a league where a GM like Detroit’s Matt Millen can keep his job leading a franchise that has had losing seasons nine of its last 11. And these two radio guys think it’s going to happen here…now? At least the media who hate Bush and Cheney know the most they have to suffer is eight years. Peterson hasn’t lost enough to warrant his departure, like it or not. In the end the endorsement of two radio characters who can’t take any criticism themselves probably confirms that it will be on Peterson’s terms when he does head off into the sunset.

**** Carl when he dies is when the Chiefs will hopefully get serious about winning again.

He's right. Peterson hasn't lost enough in the regular season to warrant a boot to the ass. His playoff drought, well, that's another issue altogether.

I hate Dawes though. He'll never point to all the other reasons why Peterson should be shown the door.

Rufus goes on to tell us that Carl has little power and doesn't tell him what to do:

CALL: I thought I was going to get sick when Carl Peterson was ta[l]king on tv during the KU MU game. He is the almighty CARL PETERSON god of all football GM’s but in reality he is nothing but an overpaid GM that has no ability to build a [S]uper Bowl football team….I could only guess that this email will never get relayed to [Chiefs chairman of the board] Clark Hunt…because CARL the god Peterson has his robots filtering and changing the emails to sound the way he wants…

RESPONSE: In the aftermath of the Raiders loss, the people lining up to lynch Carl Peterson were as packed together as a passenger train rolling out of Calcutta on a round-trip, two-for-one day, to read some of the emails I received. But it’s always particularly amusing to read ones where they think of Peterson as the NFL’s version of Kim Ill Sung, the self-appointed “Great Leader” of North Korea, an omnipotent Oz-like figure who knowith and controllith all things, or so these people think.

If you’ve read this site at various times, you’ve seen a broad cross-section of emails, letters and responses that many times aren’t glowing tributes. I know, because the majority of emails of this nature are sent my way, but everyone around the team sees them I imagine. My goodness, here’s yours printed above right now!

Frankly, I don’t think I or anyone else here could change your words “to sound the way [Peterson] wants” even if we were to try, for starters because Peterson doesn’t tell me what he wants and I don’t ask. Besides, after the Raiders loss I’m sure he’s not naïve enough to expect that any kind words would be flowing his or Herm’s way.

If Peterson, or maybe it should be his “robots,” are guilty of anything it’s not being more up-front on the nature of this season. See my It Was Over Last Year here from November 21, 2007.

Translation: Huard bombed and the playoff dream is over. Now we're going to cover up the stink emanating from One Arrowhead Drive with the perfume of the "rebuilding season," which we maintain was the goal from day one!!!

I suppose if winning more games than losing during a season is one's definition of success, 66.6% ain't bad.

Is there another team in the entire NFL that has a "Rufus Dawes" type of column, whose sole purpose seems to be firing back at media and fans, and telling them they should be happy about win percentages? This team is pathetic.

Agreed. Pathetic.

Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.

With a 3-9 playoff record. And no playoff wins since January 1994. A team that has scored more than 17 points only 3 times in 12 playoff games, and has been held to less than 10 points three times.

Carl Peterson, thy name is mediocrity.

He's better than Matt Millen. Whoopee.

I'd like to see the breakdown of the number of playoff appearances (and victories) per year employed for each GM in the league with a tenure longer than 8 years.

This is also a league where a guy like Randy Mueller wins the Sporting News NFL Executive of the Year in 2000 after overseeing the Saints first playoff win in franchise history... only to be fired 2 years later.
