Now im kinda of new to this, but lets look at Herm Edwards drafting ability.
IN 2008-
1a round-Glenn Dorsey-he is really begining to look like a pro-bowl caliber player.
1b round-Branden Albert- he is a great player and man on the line, no matter what anybody says
2nd round-Brandon Flowers-he is already playing at the level of a pro-bowler.
3rd round-Jamal Charles-you guys already know what a steal this guy is.
5th round-Brandon Carr- yah i know he may not be a great player, but he is definitely capable of starting in this league.
No that is a great draft class-

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

Welcome to Chiefs Crowd! Wow! Lot's of new members posting, that's great!! We're the best of the best Chiefs fans! :)

Interestingly, I just read an article the other day relating to the Peterson GM era relating to his draft history with the Chiefs, which included the yrs Edwards was HC of course. Overall the article showed Peterson era draft stats as being more of failure for the Chiefs than a success, by quite a margin.

He was lucky once in a while in other words, rather than consistent. Possibly 2008 will prove to be one of his lucky draft years, I don't know if Edwards being the HC at that time was a factor or not...possibly.

I have contradicting thoughts related to Jamal Charles being a "steal"...we paid a very high price for him...considering we gave up Jared Allen in the deal.

I really wish people who join the Crowd, never mind.

I am just glad that Herm is not the head coach anymore. Nobody doubts his talent finding ability, that is what he does the best.

I think a man should not be talked about if he ripped up a team.

Welcome to the forum!

But who cares about Herm now? His days are done, but yes he did a good job of drafting in that 2008 class. Jared Allen is a huge part of why though. If Albert were to pan out at LT, like i believe he can, then that would be a pretty fair trade. But it is still too early to tell if that was a good deal or not. I am one of the fans who would rather have kept Jared Allen, and i bet Herm Edwards does too bc he likely would still have his job and Aaron Curry to go along in the 4-3. But all we can do now is look to the future and Pioli's regime...i like what i am seeing, i just hope romeo xan fix the defense. its so pathetic the way this team has played defense the last couple years.

I am glad that Herm is gone from KC. Thats all I will say to spare anyone any ranting that I tend to do when Herm Edwards time in KC is brought up.

No one ever said Herm wasn't a good scout. In fact, that's where he got his start and truly excelled.

Herm was absolutely awful at hiring coaches, managing a roster, coaching up players, game management, strategic planning, conditioning his players, calling timeouts, challenging plays, holding players accountable, holding coaches accountable, accentuating strengths, minimizing weaknesses, taking responsibility, and playing to win.

But yeah, he drafted some decent players occasionally. I guess there's that.

This...

His ability to draft talent is a far cry from his ability to coach.

First of all, Welcome to the greatest place on earth...Other than Arrowhead.

Herm, CP, and the Chiefs had a good draft that year. But if you look at the entire body of his and Carl's work, not so hot.

its so pathetic the way this team has played defense the last couple years.

I agree. The whole reason I became a Chiefs fan was because of their defense. Our defense has been a joke since DT's last year.

When I was young, and was able to watch the Chiefs on tv, which was not often, but one thing that stand out in my memories, the commentators always said that the Chiefs have a strong defense. The Chiefs were known as a strong defensive team. In the time of Carl Peterson, the Chiefs became not only a strong defensive team, they became a feared team to play at Arrowhead! I love to hate on Carl, but I admire what he did do when he was here. I remember what it was like before. I was at Arrowhead, when you could almost sit where ever you wanted to.

His drafting ability was great but he wasn't much of a coach IMO.
