Jets and Chiefs reach agreement for Coach Edwards

The Chiefs send a 2006 4th rounder for the rights to Herman Edwards.

If I were a Jet fan, I'd have mixed emotions about this. Edwards isn't the best coach in the league, and he clearly had injury problems this year. Four and twelve is 4-12, though.

Re: Jets and Chiefs reach agreement for Coach Edwards

They could stand to lose one or both of their coordinators too if they don't move quickly to promote one of them.

I'd be ticked if I was a Jets fan. Herm is a quality coach who was delt a crappy hand this year with injuries. Plus the Jets have had alot of turnover at head coach in recent years, as we know that's never a good thing.

Re: Jets and Chiefs reach agreement for Coach Edwards

I think Edwards is a great coach, actually. This year was all injury-driven, and if you take this year's record out, his remaining record is pretty solid (especially having to deal with the Patriots in the same division).

Big mistake by the Jets. That franchise is lost.

Re: Jets and Chiefs reach agreement for Coach Edwards

Jets fans seem to loathe Edwards, though.

Come to think of it, Jets fans seem to loathe everyone unless they're in the playoffs.

Well for starters his career record is 37-32, prior to this injury filled disaster it was 33-20. And he guided the Jets to the playoffs in 3 of his 5 years.

I'm not sure how you can blame him for Pennington, prior to his injury he was one of the better QBs in the league. I think the only thing they did wrong with him was rush him back too soon.

Ahhh, I think that is sufficient evidence...playoffs 3 out of 5 years.

Re: Jets and Chiefs reach agreement for Coach Edwards

Not to mention there has been some roster turnover.

Coles (gone and back)
Thomas (departed)
Hall (departed)
Moss (departed)
Pennington (oft injured and ineffective)
LaMont Jordan (Raiders)

......and probably a few others.

Pennington, when healthy, is better than the majority of the starters in the league. Edwards is a winning coach who sticks up for, and bonds with his players. Please explain how the Jets have underachieved, when they've made the playoffs three out of the last five years.

Re: Jets and Chiefs reach agreement for Coach Edwards

Not to make a racial connection but Herm reminds me a lot of Dungy before he went to Indy. A good coach who maybe needs a change in scenery to finally take the final steps toward a great coach. He certainly has the organizational and motivational skills to do the job. If he gets the right situation and can surround himself with good assistants then he will really excel. Good move for the Chiefs. Probably a real bad move for the Jets. Who are they going to get? Another unproven coordinator? More years of rebuilding. A proven vet? Who's out there? Mike Sherman, Mike Tice, Norv, Jim Haslett? Can anyone say any of those guys is better than Herm? Jeez bad situation there for the Jets.

The key there is when healthy and he has shown a remarkable ability to not be able to do so. And he is probably now simply damaged goods. He'll never be a quality starter in the league again I would bet.

Pennington's career stats:

65.3% Completetion Percentage
55 Touchdowns
30 Picks
92.3 QB Rating

So he doesn't have a cannon arm. Neither does Tom Brady, Brad Johnson, Drew Brees, Eli Manning, Matt Hasselbeck, etc. Since when has arm strength had anything to do with the success of a quarterback in the NFL? Ask Mike Vick and Patrick Ramsey what their cannon arms have gotten them lately.

I agree that his injuries are probably going to keep him from ever being a viable starter, but comparing him to Kyle Boller is ridiculous.

Umm, didn't Billick win a Superbowl? Can fathom how a coach that won a Superbowl can be considered overrated, especially with the atrocious offense they had during their run.
