    Yeah i said it!! I remember when it happened and thought it was a bad idea then and still do to this day. He had a solid foundation being built and just about everyone on here was whining and calling for his head. years removed whats your opinion now?

    I hate the 3-4 defense, we've been drafting for the 3-4 for how many years now? And still cant get it right!

    Imo he drafted better than haley and was a better coach and motivator.

    He was another year away from this team doing special things. He was left with Nothing thanks to crybaby vermeil.

    Blast away people but you got what you asked for with this change and this team!

    MUCH better coach than Haley. I agree with everything you just said. I don't think he was given a fair shot with a good, young roster that he had the task to build. However, I don't think he was the coach that was going to be the guy who would lead the team to the promised land. I think his personnel moves kick the living **** outta Pioli's moves. This team is built on the Edwards picks. Imagine what this team would look like if Dorsey was allowed to play in a 4-3 and if he had a couple more years to build this team.

    What a shame.

    Who's the better coach, Herm or Edwards? A more important question might be who's the taller midget? They were both horrible. Herm was a great talent evaluator but just a god awful head coach. Haley was a good OC but an atrocious head coach. They both sucked.

    We got spoiled with how well our D unit had gel'd over the past few years. I'll be the first to admit but Carr leaving hurt us a LOT more then I thought it would. Add in some injuries here and there and we get people complaining about a 3-4 defense. The grass is always greener.

    This team is built on players getting better as they've gotten older and gained more experience. Are people so naive to say that Pioli's picks haven't been getting better? In all honesty if we did go out and use our first round draft on a QB our team as a whole would start playing better.

    The reason I think this (if we pick the right QB) is that he'll command the offense and provide that leadership that's been lacking. This will instantly put the offense at ease and just let them play. Eleven guys thinking on their own will never be as good as one guy commanding and 10 guys following.

    Add to this that the defense won't be thinking holy cr@p seriously?!? Another turnover, alright, back to work or simply why should I put my career on the line when they can't even score a TD in every game?!?

    The problem with our coaching situations seems to be that we've hired either great talent evaluators or guys that want to keep their division while trying to run the whole army. We need a head coach that says I'm here to command, my coordinators are here to coordinate the respective sides. Get to work.

    Jerk Edwards may have been the best evaluator of talent worst manager of a game to have eve coached which is why he's awesome on Espn and hasn't been of interest for any coaching gig. Texaschief admit it he was a bad coach, excellent in evaluating talent.

    He was a better coach than Haley. Edwards has been offered several jobs as a coach but has turned them down because of the sweet job he's got at ESPN. He'll coach again.

    What has he been offered and turned down? He is on the radio every week and he has said he had leads, but it was my understanding that he was turned down not him turning it down, but he has twisted it the other way now since he as his ESPN job. Since then he said, he loves his job and does not want to give it up to coach.

    You mean the same Herm that brought in Kyle Turley to be the starting left tackle? The only positive about Herm is he has an eye for dbs.

    I don't no if I can agree with this. Charles,Bowe,Hali,Albert all talent that are not dbs that we got when Herm was in KC. to Go along with Flowers,and Carr (now gone) Herm didn't draft terrible. He just didn't put the players that we got in a good position to win witch is the biggest job of a head coach.

    I didn't mean to call herm-jerk edwards-stupid i phone, I was a little buzzed and didnt proof read. He is by no means a jerk but to iphone herm and jerk apparently are close enough. Herm is NOT a jerk, He did some good things for this team but a terrible hc he was.

    I had the same issue a while back. My HTC smart phone offered.me the word "Jerk" and "Worm" on two separate occasions.
