Hello everyone! I'm a new user to the forum, but long time Chiefs fan. I look forward to getting to know everyone here!! :)

With that said...

I have started a petition online to let the Chiefs organization know that we are mad, and we want change! We want Herm Edwards to go, now!

This is a brand new petition, and I am hoping that we can get thousands of signatures quickly, to send to Mr. Hunt and Mr. Peterson to let them know that enough is enough, we are tired of mediocrity and we want Herm gone now!

Please visit the below petition at the following link, and PLEASE spread the word to everyone you know. Let's speak up! Thanks everyone for your support!!!!

I'm the 7th to sign. If it weren't for the fact Carl Peterson is having a torrid love affair with Herm Edwards, this might work.(Was that an out loud thought? My bad!)

Doubt that it will do any good, but if you're a regular I will support your cause.

I am one who WON'T be signing the petition...

Yes, I am ticked by the decisions that the coaching STAFF has been making recently, but LOOK AROUND PEOPLE - who in the world will replace him?

Let's think about the San Diego issue last year - they fire Marty and then end up with IN MY OPINION is one of the WORST coaches: Norv Turner.

There is NO ONE to replace Herm and way too many crappy coaches out there. College coaches haven't really proven themselves in the NFL arena and the good coaches will stay put where they are.

Firing Herm isn't the answer. We need an new offensive coordinator who will stand up to Herm and show him that running the ball and eating up clock isn't the answer. We need Al Saunders back!

The person who gave Herm the idea to challenge the spot needs to be fired! Yes, I know that Herm made the final decision - but it had to have been someone from the booth that send down the dumb idea. Fire him.

Go ahead - flame me, I don't care! After the pissy weekend of watching the Jayhawks fall apart, then driving 3 hours to watch the Chiefs throw away the game while watching stooopid drunk fans all around us fight and then get hauled out by the cops (or one heroic beer guy) I'm sick of it!!!! I will ALWAYS be a Chiefs fan, but I don't always have to be happy with the way they are playing.

One bright spot - Kolby Smith!!! I hope that having Priest around taught Kolby some class and that he wasn't learning any bad habits from LJ.

Alright, I'm ready - fire away!

Again I would take anyone (even Cameron) over Herm. He is worse than just a bad coach, the guy is a moron who embarrasses us every time he opens his mouth!!!

Did that guy also tell Herm to take a time out to "think about whether to challenge or not"???

That is idiotic! You just throw the Challenge flag and hope you get the spot of the ball changed.

Wasting 2 timeouts is asinine!!

Go ahead - flame me, I don't care!

That's your fault for being a KU fan!

Well he doesn't mention that in the post game interview.

He actually says he wanted to put the pressure on the running back and the O line, not the kicker, so he was going for it no matter what.

Where did you hear this from?

Bill Cowher if he'd come back (as mentioned)...if not as much as it would piss me off as a 49er fan, someone should be chasing down Mike Singletary.

Bill Cowher has said he will not entertain any future coaching possibilities until his daughter graduates from high school in 2009. So at the soonest he won't be availible until the 2009-2010 season. Speculation is that if he does return it will be as a college head coach, not the NFL.

Ummmm just a thought, but there are a couple other fits...

1) Tom Moore---not sure if he'd leave, but he is the long time off coordinator for Indy

2) Jim Mora Jr.---he got a raw deal trying to run his scheme with Michael Vick. Not a good fit, and Vick never developed.

3) Tom Coughlin---his act has worn out in NY, but frankly if he could come in with the attitude he has this year of trying to work with his veterans, then he could be a good fit.

4) Andy Reid---things have gone south in Philly, he's a good coach, but may need a fresh start. Would do his kids good also to get a fresh start in a new town.

5) Norm Chow---no head coaching experience, but offensive genius, he'll get a chance somewhere

There's 5 others...sure Cowher would be great, but I'm not sure he has a price tag until his girls are out of school in 2009. I think Chow would be the best choice in this crowd...of course as a 49er fan I won't suggest Mike Singletary.

Moore, if he were to leave, would likely get a head coaching job, and I don't think that we will be giving up on Herm too soon.

Coughlin is an interesting prospect. I like what he does.

Mora Jr. isn't a real big offensive line guy. I'd rather not.

I really like Reid and Chow though. If we were able to get one of those guys as OC, I'd be thrilled.

Coughlin is a joke.

Though I have heard he has lightened up in the locker room and is respected slightly more this year by the players.

I don't see that in our organization either.

1) Tom Moore---not sure if he'd leave, but he is the long time off coordinator for Indy

It seems he has done a good job in Indy I guess although I don't know enough of what he has done to comment.

2) Jim Mora Jr.---he got a raw deal trying to run his scheme with Michael Vick. Not a good fit, and Vick never developed.
Again don't have enough knowledge to comment.

3) Tom Coughlin---his act has worn out in NY, but frankly if he could come in with the attitude he has this year of trying to work with his veterans, then he could be a good fit.

He would immediately lose the team, he is a worse locker room cancer then a displeased TO.

4) Andy Reid---things have gone south in Philly, he's a good coach, but may need a fresh start. Would do his kids good also to get a fresh start in a new town.
He has no class, no brains, and he isn't a good coach, he demands respect but doesn't try to earn it. This is the worst case scenario for me. I would rather sign Herm to a 10 year contract rather then sign this low life for 1 year.

5) Norm Chow---no head coaching experience, but offensive genius, he'll get a chance somewhere

I feel he would be a great head coach, just from what I have seen of him, the only problem with taking someone from O-Coordinator to head coach is the reverse of the problem we have with Herm, we might well go back to not having a D, It would be interesting to know how he was at delegating responsibility.

There's 5 others...sure Cowher would be great, but I'm not sure he has a price tag until his girls are out of school in 2009. I think Chow would be the best choice in this crowd...of course as a 49er fan I won't suggest Mike Singletary.
Lol Singletary, sounds like a good choice to me. I think with what we have had to endure for the last 20 years, ups and downs and neither up or down, just very average, I believe that if Cowher were going to wait a year before he came back it might not be a bad idea to keep Herm another year and patiently wait for Cowher. Also another year with Herm is going to make princess Carl look all that much worse.

I was thinking more along the lines of an offensive coordinators spot for any of them, eventhough I doubt any of them would want anything less than a head coaching job. Herm isn't going anywhere yet.

Are there any previous Chiefs players that might make a good Chiefs head coach? I know that no matter how much a person excelled as a player that it doesn't necessarily mean they will be an effective coach. But it's interesting that we never had a player for a coach before (Paul Wiggin and Herm Edwards were players, but never for Kansas City).
Len Dawson for coach! (But he's in his 70's now!).

To me, it seems like a good offensive line player would make a good coach. I would like to see Grunny for three reasons.

1. He was one of the best ever, IMO. He understood both sides of the ball.

2. He would bring back an ever declining fan base.

3. We would have Grunny and Gunny. How cool is that?

Get rid of the parrot.

How about Emmitt Thomas! One of our all time best cornerbacks is now the interim coach of the Atlanta Falcons. If the Falcons hire someone else after this year as their permanent coach, that'd be cool if the Chiefs interview Emmitt. Won't happen, but it'd be cool. :)

rbedgood
12-13-2007, 07:39 PM
Emmitt was at one point considered a prospect to be the first African-American head coach. But his time has passed and age has made it unlikely that he'll get the opportunity. At 64 it would be unlikely for him to land his first head coaching position. I think that Arthur Blank will likely target Mike Singletary from my 49ers. Ugh...that's gonna suck...
