Carl Peterson (left) says he will be back running the team for owner Clark Hunt (right) next season.


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. | If the Chiefs are to bounce back next year from one of the most miserable seasons in club history, they will do it with Carl Peterson as general manager and Herm Edwards as head coach.The Chiefs ended their 4-12 season Sunday with a 13-10 overtime loss to the New York Jets at the Meadowlands. The Chiefs had lost as many as 12 games in a season only twice in their history, and not since 1978.
Peterson said afterward that he would be returning for a 20th season as president and general manager in 2008 and that Edwards would be retained for a third season.
Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt did not make himself available for interviews.
“There will be no changes,” Peterson said. “I’m still under the same contract. I’m here and will be here in my current capacity.
“Clark and I have had conversations. We talk every day or almost every day. We have a plan, and we’re implementing that plan. He’s on board with that plan and embraces it. He’s as disappointed as anybody, but he’s not discouraged.”
Hunt’s silence fed speculation that he was planning to make changes. The loss to the Jets was the Chiefs’ ninth straight, a club record for a non-strike season. The Chiefs also lost nine consecutive games in 1987, but three of those came when they used replacements for the striking players.
“Certainly Clark is involved,” Peterson said. “But the Hunt family is not one that is going to get out there and express their views and emotions all the time. Clark has his thoughts and he expresses them to me, but it’s just not his way to make them public all the time. He doesn’t feel a need to make a comment every single time.”
Peterson had been unwilling to use the term until Sunday, but finally let it spill as he explained the plan to repair the damage.
“Let me go on record: We are rebuilding,” he said.
The Chiefs used several young players as this season wore on, and Edwards’ plan is to play even more young players next season. The Chiefs’ initial pick will be either third, fourth or fifth in the first round of next year’s draft.
They have 10 draft picks, including extras in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds, so it’s not out of the question that the Chiefs could start two or more rookies when next season begins.
“What is unique with Herm is that he is a head coach, the first one that I’ve had with the Chiefs, that embraces playing young players and building through the draft and taking the lumps that go with it,” Peterson said. “We need to get younger and we’ll continue to do that.
“We would have liked to have won this one. For all of us, it’s just been excruciating. Nine consecutive losses? That’s unacceptable. I will agree with my head coach that we’re not going to get discouraged. We’ll have a plan. That plan is already in the works. It has been for the past couple of years.”
Edwards indicated a great deal of relief that the season is finished, and instead of preparing another futile game plan, he can begin preparing for next season.
“Am I glad it’s over? Yeah, I’m glad the season is over with,” Edwards said. “Now we can go on to try to improve our football team.
“This year is over with. It’s been very disappointing for all of us. The great thing about it is we can bounce back and that’s what we count on doing. It’s not like we’re going to go off somewhere and feel sorry for ourselves. We’ll go back to work and we’ll get it fixed.”
Edwards indicated that if he made changes to his coaching staff, they would come this week. He is likely to replace offensive coordinator Mike Solari, who was never able to find a way to energize the Chiefs this season.
The Chiefs scored 226 points, the lowest in team history for a 16-game season. They scored fewer only in 1977, when the season was 14 games, and 1982, when the season was shortened to nine games because of a player strike.
Told you Clark wouldn`t have the balls to fire them.

This is the quote Herm gave with the smirk I posted earlier.

“Am I glad it’s over? Yeah, I’m glad the season is over with,” Edwards said. “Now we can go on to try to improve our football team.
“This year is over with. It’s been very disappointing for all of us. The great thing about it is we can bounce back and that’s what we count on doing. It’s not like we’re going to go off somewhere and feel sorry for ourselves. We’ll go back to work and we’ll get it fixed.”

I love the way Carl says:

“We would have liked to have won this one. For all of us, it’s just been excruciating. Nine consecutive losses? That’s unacceptable. I will agree with my head coach that we’re not going to get discouraged. We’ll have a plan. That plan is already in the works. It has been for the past couple of years.”

Makes Clark seem wise, eh?

Remember when Carl said he would evaluate "HIMSELF" after the season?

Didn't take him long to decide "HE" didn't do anything wrong, because the plan is friggin' working or what????

:lol:

This has become a freakin' comedy!

Thank God for next year right?

:lol:

I actually feel good that the season is over.

I never in my 36 years remember saying that.

Sigh...

This is the first time ever that I have wanted the Chiefs to quit playing games because it hurts to watch!

Thank God, again, this game was such a fiasco it made me laugh!

If you are an older father with a teenage daughter you do not want her to get pregnant and dont want to be a grandpa to her baby when she is 16...but if she becomes pregnant at 16, all that sudden you want that baby and you love that baby...why? because it exists, it is now my granddaughter or grandson.

now we all cant stand herm edwards, but now that he is that baby for next season, we need to now support him and talk positive about him and love him. Why? Because he is now OUR 2008-09 COACH!

Well, I kind of agree with you at this point. Since we have this bath water in the tub and the water company just shut off the water, then I guess we need to go ahead and take a bath in it.

I will say this: For all of us here that are hoping for a playoff birth, I would not expect to see it, next year will be another 4-12 season. The reason? Herm and Carl have already stated that they are NOT going to build this team in free agency, that means we are going to have a lot more rookies on the team next year. Sorry, you cannot win with rookies.

As predicted by several members of this forum, Mike Solari will be the scapegoat for why the entire season went awry, and why the Chiefs will excuse themselves from making major personnel changes for the '08 season.
Boy, Carl must've spent SO MUCH time reflecting on himself and his impact on the franchise.

SCREW THAT I would rather gouge my eyes out with spoons then ever embrace Herm Edwards. My thoughts are this guy is either Timsatt or CP or maybe Hermie got the internet. Not bad though first post and already hated and on ignore.

Perhaps Herm could get out on the field and do the "Miracle at the Meadowland" every week for the Chiefs next year.

He seems to have that moment stuck in his head forever.

"If you stay close in this league, you have a lot of opportunities to win games."

I think that is his offensive philosophy. Let the defense win the game by the other team making mistakes.

I see a pattern here.

Let's just pretend, for just a second, the Chiefs dominate next season. They go through the playoffs winning tight games, mostly due to Herm's excellent playcalling. Are you going to change your name?

If he would man up and quit, and take CP with him I would change my nick to Hermlover in a second, even better they could fire Shanahan in Denver and Hermie could take that job.

and Prough in all seriousness I dont want the Chiefs to make it to the playoffs next year with Hermie aboard. It will not be his fault, it will be in spite of him. All it will do is prolong our suffering. There is a chance I hate Herm more then Hermhater. I found this site by googling bad things about Herm... found HermHaters nick and have been here since.
