YUP! I don't give enough credit to Clark Hunt for what he did. He showed a real commitment to fixing what was wrong. As I see it, Clark got his claws in Reid and said "I don't care what you have to do....just build me a championship team". What more can a fan ask from an owner????
There was A time when Herm and Carl were well wrecking the team that I thought Clark Hunt didn't care anything about winning and losing. But at that time he was just getting his feet wet he had not been the guy in charge very long so I guess I should cut him some slack and give him time to adjust into the role as the head guy of the franchise. And boy has he ever. I've been very impressed with him since the end of last year. The statement he put out how he was Not going to accept what we saw happen in KC last year then going out and MAKING Andy Reid WANT to come to a 2-14 team and he had other options. Clark Hunt can't get enough praise for the job he did this past offseason. I hope we see more of that going forward
YUP! Crazy as it sounds, it seems to me that for a while Andy Reid was actually our GM. Clark grabbed Reid and said "just tell me who and what we need to win again". From that sprang Dorsey and all the new coaching staff. And from that our draft choices and free agent pickups. Or anyway that is the way it appears to me. Lamar would be proud of his son. And Chiefs fans should be proud of him to. He done good. He saved a proud team and fan base from the hell that Jags fans face.
I'm sorry, I couldn't hear you over "The winningest QB since the start of 2011."
Yeah... THAT guy... he's 3-0 as a Chief.
So sad....The guy that needs to be reading this is MIA.
And while we are on the subject of Clark making the moves that he did last off-season, we also need to send out a big thank you to Dick Vermeil for telling Andy Reid to jump all over the chance t become the Chiefs HC, in addition to Vermeil's 5 years of service as HC ( and that prolific Offense that he put together ).
Good point brdempsey! DV did us a good turn encouraging Reid to come here. A lot of established coaches wouldn't have wanted to come here after last years debacle.
Let's look at what's transpiring with Alex Smith's former team. They look like a team that could be in trouble, as opponents have figured out how to defend CK and the pistol Offense ( Indy stopped them cold ) & many 49er fans had posted around the web that the 49ers Defense seemed to suffer from the change from Alex to CK.
I had said before that the Niners getting rid of Alex Smith could potentially backfire on them & the Niners last two drafts do not seem to have yielded a whole lot in spite of the number of picks that they have had.
