Chiefs should pick a Card for their coach

"Maybe the winter winds will twist Herm Edwards for two more weeks.
Todd Haley, offensive coordinator for the Arizona Cardinals, won't be completely free until after the Super Bowl.
He and the Cardinals continued their unfathomable playoff run Sunday afternoon, slipping past the Philadelphia Eagles 32-25 in the NFC championship game, putting the Cardinals in football's biggest game for the first time in history.
Are you kidding me?
Bill Bidwill's Cardinals are going to play on sports' grandest stage.
No way. America will elect an inexperienced black president with a Muslim-sounding name before the Cardinals play in a Super Bowl.
Oh, snap. Any and everyone associated with the Cardinals' rise is football royalty right now.
Head coach Ken Whisenhunt is the next Bill Belichick. Receiver Larry Fitzgerald (nine receptions, 152 yards and three TDs) is the next Jerry Rice. Quarterback Kurt Warner (21 of 28, 279 yards and four TDs) is the next Johnny Unitas, a semi-pro hanger-on-turned-Hall of Famer.
And maybe, if we're lucky, Todd Haley is the next head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.
Why not? Haley fits the profile. He's a Bill Parcells disciple with long-ago connections to Scott Pioli. Haley and Pioli were together in the 1990s with the Jets, Parcells and Belichick. When Parcells and Belichick split, Pioli went with Belichick to New England and Haley remained loyal to Parcells.
"I consider Parcells my mentor," Haley told me in the Cardinals' celebratory locker room. "My dad works for the Dolphins now."
Working for Parcells as a receivers coach, Haley was a part of monumental rebuilding projects with the Jets and the Cowboys. Raising Arizona as the offensive coordinator for the last two years completes Haley's understudy resume. He's ready to run his own shop.
"If you can do it here, where it's never been done, that's what you want to be a part of," Haley said. "This is the turnaround of all turnarounds."
Hmm. He might want to take a look at the Kansas City roster before making such bold statements. When he arrived in the desert, Fitzgerald, Warner, Anquan Boldin and Edgerrin James were already waiting, baking and looking for direction.
Haley simply needed to let his play-calling imagination run wild. Oh, and he had to manage a few oversized egos."
