Chiefs Have Many Options With Third Pick

Many Kansas City Chiefs fans expected to see some struggles from the young team that GM Carl Peterson put on the field this season. These same fans expected the Chiefs to make improvements as the season went along, which they did not going 2-14.

However, there is reason for optimism in KC; the Chiefs have the third pick in the next draft, Peterson is gone, and head coach Herm Edwards may get the axe next. The Chiefs had a great draft last year, even though first round pick Glenn Dorsey did not play up to expectations.

The biggest disappointment for Chiefs fans this year was the fact that many of the young players didn't improve like expected. Dwayne Bowe was the go-to receiver but still dropped far too many balls to be considered a superstar just yet.

MVN: Time to Fire the Gun in Kansas City

http://espndeportes-akamai.espn.go.com/2003/photos2006/0815/w_GuntherCunningham_v.jpg
I've gone into extensive detail about why Carl Peterson deserves the majority of the blame (part 1 and part 2) for the recent problems in Kansas City and, by association, Lynn Stiles deserves to be culprit #2. Stiles was the VP of Player Personnel from 2001-2005, so you know who to thank for the horrendous drafting during that time period (yes, this is the same Lynn Stiles who could not identify Ben Roethlisberger going into the NFL draft) and for the brilliant free agent acquisitions that included Shawn Barber and Dexter McCleon. I've already discussed the personnel failures ad nauseum, so I'll move on to culprit #3: Gunther Cunningham.

I've been screaming for Gunther Cunningham's head for a while now. Gunther Cunningham's defense is like Sega--it used to be fun in the 90's. The problem is, Gunther Cunningham probably got a lot more credit than he deserved. He took a team that was largely built by Marty Schottenheimer's players and he had Schottenheimer looking over his shoulder to assist in playcalling. Why am I so sure about this? Because Marty has carried an outstanding defense to three different teams, whereas Gunther Cunningham has never recreated the same dominant defense without mentor Marty.

Gonzalez plans return to Chiefs unless he hears the R word (rebuild)

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez (88) celebrates after ...

Tony Gonzalez will soon make his annual postseason trip to Hawaii to play in the Pro Bowl. Upon his return, he should have a better idea about which direction the Chiefs are headed.

By then, the Chiefs will likely have a new general manager and a decision on whether coach Herm Edwards will be retained.

At that point, Gonzalez will decide whether he will again ask for a trade.

“As far as I know, I’ll be a Chief next year,” Gonzalez said. “Depending on what Clark (Hunt) wants to do, if he wants to blow this whole thing up and bring in a new coaching staff and bring in a new coordinator with that and bring in a new quarterback in the draft, that all weighs into whether or not I want to be a Chief next year.

“As far as I’m concerned, as a veteran on this team going into my 13th year next year, the last thing I want to hear is ‘rebuild.’ I’m not into it. If they come in here and they want to blow it all up, I’ll be frustrated and I’ll be a little (ticked) off.

“There are some really good coaches on this staff. I want Herm back, I want (offensive coordinator Chan Gailey) back. I want my position coach, Jon Embree, back. These guys are going to take us in the direction we want to go.”

Gonzalez indicated he would play only one more season, at least if he stays with the Chiefs. In that case, it might benefit the Chiefs to at least listen to trade offers for Gonzalez, though those offers might not be overwhelming given that Gonzalez is nearing the end of his career.

USA Today: Kansas City Chiefs Team Report

It was supposed to be a typical coach's season wrap-up press conference. It felt more like a coach wrapping up his three-year tenure with the team.

Chiefs coach Herm Edwards did his best not to sound like a lame duck as he summed up his third year, a 2-14 season that probably will not merit a fourth go-round in Kansas City after a 4-12 campaign the previous year.

Even Edwards had to acknowledge there was little beyond player evaluations he could do while awaiting the hiring of a new general manager.

Whoever team chairman Clark Hunt hires and that hire will come from outside the current organization will have to make a decision, with Hunt having final approval, on Edwards' status.

In his season-ending press conference Monday, Edwards was the captain of the sinking ship still insisting he did the right thing this year in rebuilding an aging Chiefs team from scratch with virtually no help from free agency. Playing as many as four rookie starters on defense, and two other starters with less than two years of experience, the Chiefs set a team record for most yards allowed (6,291) and a league record for fewest sacks recorded (10).

Peterson deserves both credit, blame for Chiefs tenure

Well I have lived to see the best of the Kansas City Chiefs and, last Sunday, listened to the worst of the Kansas City Chiefs when they set an all-time record for loses.

Many of the sports talk show hosts got their wish when Carl Peterson resigned as the team’s president and general manager. I was not one on the crusade to fire Carl, but I do believe the decision by owner Clark Hunt was the best for the Chiefs.

Peterson in his last few years was once called a “stupid idiot” by one talk show host, but I can assure you Peterson is neither stupid nor an idiot. Many have disagreed with some of his deals, but we must remember, when former owner Lamar Hunt hired Peterson, his goal wasn’t to win the Super Bowl but to fill the stands. He successfully accomplished that goal.

After suffering the worst season ever and with the not-so-great resume of coach Herm Edwards, I would definitely say Edwards’ job is on the line. It appears Hunt is waiting to fill the GM position first and let the new man play a big part in hiring a coach if that’s the route he chooses to pursue. The pickings are getting slimmer and slimmer, as three more coaches lost their jobs after last week’s games. A large number of fans are hoping the Chiefs bring Bill Cowher back to Kansas City again, but if this happens, Hunt will have to dig deep in his pockets, because Cowher will not come cheap.

Boston.com: Chiefs request permission on Pioli; could speed up process

Patriots Vice President of Player Personnel Scott Pioli is scheduled to interview with the Cleveland Browns today, and the process could move quickly due to the interest of a second team.

In addition to the Browns, the Kansas City Chiefs have also officially asked for permission and are free to speak with Pioli, according to an NFL source.

With the Chiefs now officially putting their hat into the ring, it could lead to a situation in which the Browns put the full-court press on Pioli assuming their meeting with him goes well, and snow in the region does not alter itineraries.

The Browns have also officially requested permission to speak with Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels for their head coaching vacancy.

KC Star: Schottenheimer says he does not expect to work for Chiefs next season

Marty Schottenheimer back when he was still prowling the sidelines in Kansas City.

A remarriage between the Chiefs and Marty Schottenheimer is "highly unlikely," Schottenheimer said Wednesday.

Schottenheimer's name has been floated as a possible candidate to return to Kansas City, whether as general manager, coach or in a front-office consulting role similar to the position that Bill Parcells holds in Miami.

Schottenheimer didn't shoot down a return to the Chiefs during a lengthy conversation with The Star but said he did not expect to be working in Kansas City next season.

Schottenheimer said he spoke with Chiefs owner Clark Hunt recently, but Schottenheimer said the conversation was more about sharing his opinion on the team's direction than a discussion about returning to the city where he coached for a decade.

"It wasn’t a job interview of any kind," said Schottenheimer, who was 101-58-1 in 10 seasons with the Chiefs. "All he did was ask me my thoughts and my ideas; what I saw from my perspective relative to the Chiefs.

"I shared my feelings, and that was an opinion. It wasn’t about applying for a job or interviewing for a job. It was about: 'Marty, what do you think about the Chiefs?' I gave him my opinion."
