Early speculation will center on former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, who has (in our opinion) been using genuine interest in his services on the part of the Browns to ensure that his name remains at the top of the “A” list. Pats V.P. of player personnel Scott Pioli’s name has been popping up as a potential candidate for other jobs, and given the manner in which the Falcons have reversed their fortunes under former New England director of college scouting Thomas Dimitroff, Pioli would seem to be a natural candidate for consideration.

Then there’s former Titans G.M. Floyd Reese, who likely will purchase billboard space throughout the Kansas City area, along with a plane that writes in the sky, “The Guy Who Built The Titans Thinks The Chiefs Can Be Even Better.”

I agree.

http://kan.scout.com/2/821730.html

Chiefs Nation pumped its collective fist, jumped in the air, screamed, got drunk, fell down, stood up again and partied like it was 1989 when it heard Carl Peterson would have to buy a ticket to attend future games at Arrowhead Stadium Monday afternoon. Yes, Peterson is out as KC's General Manager/President/CEO/Draft Bust Artist/Leather Jacket Model, but is all this celebrating really appropriate?

That’s the question I was asking myself as I sifted through the fallout from the announcement that Peterson had resigned Monday afternoon. That’s because when the news hit, my reaction was fairly tame.

There’s no question Carl Peterson has been a problem over the last decade. We don’t need to recount all the failed draft picks, wasted free-agent signings and contract negotiation headaches. It’s all been well documented.

But I’m hearing about Chiefs fans immediately wanting to buy season tickets. Some of you are calling for Arrowhead Stadium to be packed this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, as a way of thanking Clark Hunt for Monday’s “Arrowhead Intervention.”

Whoa, now. Don’t pop the champagne just yet. You’ll waste it, Chiefs fans. Clark Hunt still has more pink slips to hand out before we can truly sit back, sigh in relief, and say, “Now we’re getting somewhere.”

As big of a problem as Peterson was, the last few years there’s no question he wasn’t the only one at fault. Yes, I’m talking about Herm Edwards.

In my mind, Peterson’s resignation came about Monday at least in part because he hired Edwards, and in fact thought he was such a hot head-coaching candidate that he gave up a draft pick for his services after a 4-12 season. One farcical 9-7 playoff season with Dick Vermeil’s leftovers followed by a 6-24 stretch later, can anyone really argue that Herm Edwards was the right hire?

Sure, there are tons of fans angry and ready for Herm to hand in his resignation papers right along with Carl. But we’ve also heard plenty of support from Hunt in favor of his head coach.

By accepting Peterson’s resignation, isn’t Hunt kind of recognizing that hiring Edwards was one of Carl’s biggest blunders?

We don’t need to go over all the close games that the Chiefs have lost in the fourth quarter the last two seasons under Edwards. Herm’s post game press conferences after such debacles, in which he has repeatedly placed blame at the feet of his players for simply failing to “make a play” with the game on the line, always felt like he was passing the buck.

In the NFL, coaching has to make a difference when the games are close. The talent level across the league from team to team is too similar. Great head coaches do their best work in the fourth quarter when the game is on the line. Instead, we’ve seen Herm blow timeouts, put the game in the hands of the league’s worst defense, and most recently, run Larry Johnson behind Wade Smith and Adrian Jones as if they were Tim Grunhard and Will Shields in their prime.

In light of all that, there’s no reason to celebrate until Herm is riding shotgun with Peterson and they’re both on their way back to California.

Carl is on his way out, and that’s a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, cutting off the head of the snake isn’t enough. The rest of the body is still wriggling over at The Truman Sports Complex, threatening to blow more games in the fourth quarter. And when April arrives, who knows – there are any number of rookies coming out in the draft who might be the second coming of Bernard Pollard, Turk McBride or Tamba Hali.

So sit tight, stay away from Arrowhead this weekend and pray that the new general manager Clark Hunt eventually hires has the good sense to realize just what Herm Edwards truly is – the head coach who finally lost enough games to convince Carl Peterson to leave Kansas City after 20 years.

Heck, for that, perhaps we should be thanking Herm? In any case, look at it this way - Dr. Frankenstein is gone, but his monster is still roaming the sideline at Arrowhead Stadium.

And what have the Broncos done? Won the division by default, that's what. The Broncos are the worst team in the AFC that's in the playoffs. I'll even bet the Dolphins are a better team.

That probably prompted the resignation/firing more than losing the game did.

Kansas City will have won the division 0 times in the last 4 years. Went to the AFC Championship never, got embarrassed the one year they managed to squeak in the playoffs and lost again to nobody in the playoffs this year because they didn't make it.

Really fixed
So which is better there, chief?

This is the worst news in a long time. Hopefully they hire Floyd Reese or some other douche who can keep screwing up their drafts and shipping their good players out of town.

Now we only have Norv Turner and Al Davis to help us win the AFC West, this is bad.

i may be in the minority here...let me preface by saying, i don't like the chiefs at all. that said, i think denver is a better team when the division is better...and football is better when the afc west is solid.

i hardly get excited for raiders/cheifs vs. bronco games. those used to be gold with so much hype...now they are trap games just a shadow of what they used to be.

Do you really think the Broncos are head and shoulders above the rest of the division? Really?

They're going to hire Pioli from New England. Mark it down now. The Hunts have a close connection to the Kraft family, as both are hugely involved in MLS, which is a pretty tight knit group. The Krafts know Pioli will leave eventually, why not help set him up with a nice job with a family they're close to?

And Hunt already knows exactly who he wants to hire, that's why Carl is gone now and not after the season.

The hunts are really good at picking office personell so don't fear bronco land the hunt's will surely hire another potato head to make the calls.

PRESIDENT VERMEIL?

Posted by Mike Florio on December 16, 2008, 10:05 p.m.

There’s a strong rumor making the rounds in league circles that former Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil could return as team president following the departure of long-time G.M., president, and COEO Carl Peterson.

It was Peterson who lured Vermeil out of retirement to coach the Chiefs in 2001, only one season after Vermeil went bawling into the sunset after taking the Rams to a Super Bowl title.

Though it’s possible that Vermeil will serve as G.M. as well, we’re guessing that the Chiefs will be setting up a Parcells-style structure in Kansas City, with a G.M. and a head coach reporting directly to Vermeil.

If Vermeil gets the top job, the chances of Herm Edwards sticking around increases significantly, since Edwards played for Vermeil in Philadelphia.

I don't know that any spin is needed. There is absolutely no way in hell anyone with knowledge of the situation takes that seriously. Clark specifically said that he wants an outsider for the job, which definitely rules out Vermeil.

Which title was Clark specifically talking about? Far as I know King Carl had about 20 of them or so it seems. So Clark Hunt could be talking about needing a set of fresh eyes for the GM position.

Crybaby is being talked about as the team president.

No need to spin at all. Clark said he wants somebody outside of the organization with no ties.

Probably there to support to talk to Carl. Wouldn't mind having Marty. He knows talent and wouldn't be making the calls on the field. He would turn things around quickly
