This is a list of all of the good things Herm did over the past three years that will help us in 2009 and beyond. Now that Herm is dead (to this organization) I can objectively state that a little good came out of his tenure. I could come up with only four things. Here they are:
1. He drafted Bowe, Pollard, Albert, Carr, and Flowers - all of whom should start for the Chiefs for the next decade or so.
2. He played the waiver wire well in 2008 - guys like Thigpen and Bradley were finds and should be good players for us for a few years at least.
3. He didn't make a panic trade/signing after Croyle and Huard went down - He put his third-string QB in there, and didn't sell of any picks or waste cap room for a QB in what he realized was a losing season.
4. He hired Chan Gailey as OC - This was a good hire and I'm glad Chan is sticking with the team in 2009 and maybe beyond.
There are hundreds of terrible things he did, sure, but at least he has these four.
