    The hot seat

    Many league observers believe both Edwards and general manager Carl Peterson are on the hot seat. If Peterson, who has been the Chiefs' general manager since 1989, is, so is Edwards. The two are close and are a package deal. Also, whenever a new GM is brought in, the existing coach is often in trouble.


    But are Peterson and Edwards really in trouble? The Chiefs did a good job drafting and this is a young roster. Miracles aren't expected. It says here that both Peterson and Edwards will be safe unless absolutely zero progress is made this season. But the whispers are out there and the job security of the GM and coach will be a major theme as the Chiefs head to training camp, fair or not

    If they were truly on the hot seat, they would have both been gone last year.

    No reason to rebuild a team from scratch with a HC that is on a hot seat.

    Sadly, I am not a Herm fan.

    Look at it this way: We only need to improve on 4 wins. As long as we get more than 4 victories, CP and Herm won't be going anywhere. If we break .500 and get close to making the playoffs with Brodie under center, we won't even get rid of him.

    However, if we win 5 to 7 games, Croyle will take the fall.

    If we win fewer than 4 games, then CP and Hermroid will be in a heap of trouble along with the players. Another season like last one and nobody in KC will be safe...
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    I'm still going with the opinion that we'll have around 6 wins. I don't think CP or Herm will be gone with that amount of wins, but Croyle will be gone if he performs badly.

    ESPN hasn't had an interesting thought since the late 80s.

    Sounds about right to me. I think by officially announcing a "rebuild" (eventhough we are in the third year of it) Herm and C.P. have lowered expectations for this season, excusing themselves for a bad season.
