    Despite 1-4 start, jobs of Chiefs GM Peterson, coach Edwards look safe

    By Michael Blunda Oct. 9, 2008

    With the Chiefs off to a 1-4 start and no indications of improvement in sight, fans and media alike are calling for heads to roll. Whether it be someone in the front office, coaching staff or both, the people of Kansas City are awaiting a public execution. The way we hear it, however, the drastic changes theyíre looking for donít appear to be on the horizon.

    Chiefs president/GM/CEO Carl Peterson, the man responsible for the current makeup of the roster, would seem to be the obvious fall guy for the teamís struggles. After all, he is the one who decided that this course of action was in the best interest of the organization. But we hear Peterson made some commitments to late owner Lamar Hunt that he intends to fulfill.

    Two of the major ones ó guiding the franchise through its transition period and overseeing the renovations to Arrowhead Stadium ó should be complete by the end of the 2009 season, which just happens to be when Petersonís contract is up. He has expressed privately that at that point, he fully plans to retire, and if present Chiefs owner Clark Hunt is anything like his father, he will allow Peterson to do just that.

    We understand that Lamar Hunt was extremely patient ó sometimes to a fault ó which is one of the main reasons why Peterson has remained in power for 20 seasons despite the fact that K.C. hasnít won a playoff game since 1993. And unless Clark Hunt has a dramatically different philosophy, Peterson is not expected to be fired before his contract expires.

    The same goes for head coach Herm Edwards, whom Peterson trusts to help rebuild the club. If Peterson is only planning to stick around for another season, itís very unlikely that he would axe Edwards, a close friend of his, before he leaves town.

    When Kansas City does finally decide to make changes in its front office, though, we hear that a serious overhaul can be expected. The team will not have one person handle the responsibilities of GM, CEO and president, as Peterson is doing. Instead, Hunt is likely to hire different individuals for these positions, so as not to have one man ruling over all facets of the organization. That is just one of many alterations Chiefs fans will see ó beginning in 2010.

    No surprise there.
    THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.

    I respect and admire loyalty, but there comes a point where it is stupidity.

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    As expected, all the Hunts care about is money. Why does he need Peterson to oversee renovations, again? Last time I checked, this is about football, now about having the prettiest stadium in the NFL! What a joke.

    I'm sorry, but I am getting real tired of this commment. If all they cared about was money they would put a good team on the field. Become the Pats and get all kinds of bandwagon fans. I truly do not believe that they are fielding a 2-14 team with the intention of it being profitable.
    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.

    Then why do I keep hearing all of this about renovations? The Hunts want the stadium to look pretty so that it can attract more people to the stadium, even to the point where they keep CP around until it's finished! Not like winning games could possibly help with that......

    Because the renovations will not be done until 2010 season, the end of cp's contract is at the end of 2009 season, the Hunts will wait until then, sadly, in my opinion.
