In Herm We (Should) Trust

http://kan.scout.com/2/747657.html

You were shocked, and possibly outraged, over the news that broke yesterday Ė the Kansas City Chiefs are in talks with the Minnesota Vikings to trade defensive end Jared Allen.

I admit, my first reaction threw my left knee way out of alignment. Trading a Pro-Bowl defensive end in his prime, coming off a career season, smacks of franchise suicide. Should the trade go through, hundreds, if not thousands of people in the Kansas City area will have worthless #69 jerseys hanging in their closets.

It hurts to think the Chiefs might lose their happy-go-lucky, carefree franchise player. Itís hard to fathom how they might compete next season, or even replace Allen. Itís easy to realize why Chiefs Nation is panicking right now.

But I know one person whoís not panicking.

He didnít panic when Willie Roaf unexpectedly retired before the 2006 training camp. He didnít panic when Trent Green went down with a concussion a few months later. He didnít panic when Larry Johnson held out for months last offseason, and he didnít panic after opening two consecutive seasons at 0-2.

Nope, Herm Edwards doesnít panic. Heís not about to start now.

Itís logical to assume that if the Chiefs are ready to dump Allen for draft picks, Hermís OK with it. Hell, maybe it was his idea. After all, itís Edwards, the former NFL Scout, who loves to stockpile draft choices and has a knack for finding young talent. Itís Edwards who knows one man does not make a team.

And itís Edwards whoís already been through this sort of scenario.

In 2002, when Edwards was coaching the New York Jets, wide receiver Laveranues Coles enjoyed a breakout season, catching 89 passes for 1,264 yards. The Jets had no other 1,000-yard wide receivers, and the only other proven receiver on the team was Wayne Chrebet, who was nearing the end of his career.

Despite Colesí season, the Jets let him escape via free agency to the Washington Redskins, who offered him a much larger contract. Because New Yorkís offense didnít exactly resemble a high-powered scoring machine, Jets fans were understandably upset over losing their best receiver just coming into his prime.

But Edwards did not panic. Despite losing Coles, Herm found a replacement in Santana Moss (who at the time had done nothing despite being drafted in the first round) and had the Jets back in the playoffs in 2004.

Coles eventually returned to the Jets, but for the purposes of our discussion, thatís irrelevant. The point is even though Edwards lost a key member of his football team after 2002, he stayed the course, found a replacement, and everything turned out just fine.

We should trust Herm Edwards to do the same in Kansas City.

If Allen is traded for a bounty of draft picks, we should believe Edwards can build KCís franchise with those resources. We should get behind Herm in his effort to replace Allen and reconstruct the Chiefsí pass rush as he sees fit.

If that means drafting Chris Long or Vernon Gholston this year, so be it. If it means moving Turk McBride to defensive end (remember, when he was drafted, Herm compared Turk to Tamba Hali), letís see how it works out. The Chiefs arenít competing for the Super Bowl any time soon, so thereís any number of ways to go about piecing together the team. Thereís no rush (pun not intended).

Yes, Jared Allen is a terrific player. But we should trust Herm Edwards to find more terrific players. Thatís part of his job description.

Should Edwards fail in that job, should the Chiefs spend the next three years searching fruitlessly for a pass rush while watching their young cornerbacks and safeties get torched, Herm should rightfully be held accountable. Thereís no way heíd sign off on dumping Allen without a concrete plan to eventually replace him, right? According to Warpaint's own Nick Athan, KCís coaching staff has been preparing for Allenís potential exit.

So yeah, youíre upset that the Chiefs might lose Jared Allen. But donít panic. Herm Edwards isnít, and he has more to lose over it than any of us. Namely, his job.

Of course, if Herm is given no say in the matter of Jared Allenís potential departure, it would be unfair to blame him for failing to replace him. But weíll leave such speculation to others.

I'm no grammar expert and I could be wrong but shouldn't this:

"In 2002, when Edwards was coaching the New York Jets, wide receiver Laveranues Coles enjoyed a breakout season, catching 89 passes for 1,264 yards."

Read like this:

"In 2002, when Edwards coached the New York Jets, wide receiver Laveranues Coles enjoyed a breakout season, catching 89 passes for 1,264 yards."

or this:

In 2002, when Edwards was the coach of the New York Jets, wide receiver Laveranues Coles enjoyed a breakout season, catching 89 passes for 1,264 yards.

When Roaf retired, Herm did nothing and fielded the worst OL in the history of the NFL.

When Green left, Herm started a 34 yr old backup who sucked ass. We had our worst season in decades.

And Herm "didn't panic" when our run game didn't work against the Colts in the playoffs. He just kept running it...running it all the way to a humiliating defeat.

I'd feel better if that dumbass would panic for once. Much like I'd feel better if a WPI writer ever made an analogy that was appropriate and not pointless.

You forgot to mention that Herm ''I don't panic'' Edwards traded a 2nd round pick for Justin Mcdroppins immediately after this ''I never panic'' crap with Coles. it was an awful trade done in haste. Also, Moss was not drafted after Coles left, you nitwit. they drafted Robertson that year.

When I read "Nope, Herm Edwards doesnít panic. Heís not about to start now." I thought "Ignorance is bliss, right?"

This type of writing is better suited for the Patriots' offseason or referring to Peyton Manning or Tony Dungy before they won the SB. You know, people/teams that have had real success and are looking to either go to the next level or regain what they once had.

If Herm loses his job, he'll get another one. I'll never get those 4 hours back that I spent watching the Chiefs/Colts in the playoffs, or the Chiefs/Colts game last year.
