    I will assume by recent you mean the last 10 years or so.

    Outside the obvious stated above:

    Getting rid of Tyler Thigpen, I really liked him and thought he could be an effective starting quarterback.

    Signing Larry Johnson to a new contract in 2007.

    In recent years....Hiring Herm Edwards.

    But if you go back, my vote would be for letting Hank Stram go, letting Schaaf/Steadman run the show, and the cruddy fifteen seasons or so that followed.

    Either way...


    GO KC!! BEAT INDY!!

    I will argue the Allen Trade was horrible. We did get a adequat LT in Brandon Albert and a good running back in J. Charles.

    Cutting Pollard lit a spark under him which motivated him to work harder. If he was not cut, I am not sure he would be the same safety for the Chiefs as he is for Houston. It is one thing to disagree with the Coach but from what I have heard he did in the locker room (and that is only rumors) He deserved to go. Any one of us would have been fired if the rumors were true.
    I agree ... especially trading picks for an unproven coach.

    Although I still think Pollard could have been a good player for us.

    Just for the sake of playing along:

    1) Keeping CP for too many seasons
    2) Keeping CP for too many seasons

    The two above, one in the same, are the birth mother of all other stupidies.

    That said, the past is the past, don't understand the point of returning, other than general conversation. We have one of the brightest futures ahead than we've had in a decade, both offensively & defensely. That's all that matter's really.

    Grbac over Gannon. Shades of Blackmon over Kenny. Most of it being the history of this franchise not recognizing a QB, that is a leader and a winner, other than the great one Lenny, Trent Green was the best Qb we ever had, as a Chief. This in no way takes anything away from what Montana did in his short time as a Chief, The only other QB that comes to my mind of an impact QB, Steve Deberg, talk about tough, and play action wizard.

    I understand the thread means recent history, so on that note, I would say the failure of Carl Peterson in addressing the needs of the Team over the longer period, and the thought that Hermie could be the Head Coach to rebuild and then fix it.

    I enjoyed Thig as well, but Jared Allen and Pollard would have made are team just rediculous. I would have said Tony Gonzalez but he wanted to leave.
