    Sorry but I think when you've got a hot hand at QB, you stick with him.

    Not saying the Chiefs would have won the Super Bowl if Huard stayed in the lineup. But they had a good thing going.

    First of all, backing into the playoffs is when you lose and get in. Herm won and got in. That's not backing in. I wouldn't even say the Chiefs got lucky. They won the game they had to win and other teams did not. They made the playoffs fair and square.

    Herm's a decent coach, not a great coach by any means, but a decent NFL coach. He's put competitive teams on the field on a regular basis and he's never had more than average talent to work with. Some of you guys have such a hard-on to criticize him that it's made you illogical.

    Oh good. Herm's head bootlicker has chimed in. Guess those brooms are getting dusty.

    For on the field performance, Herm is a decent coach, middle of the pack, has serious flaws as a game day coach, but can get most of his players to play with enthusiasm. Off the field, a self deluded provocateur & prevaricator

    Herm's a decent coach. When are you going to get past the hatred and give him his due for what he's accomplished, BYH? When Trent Green went down, most people had no idea that Damon Huard was even still in the league. The Chiefs made it through that, and they won their last game, as they needed to, to get into the playoffs. He deserves credit. They may even beat Indianapolis. Herm's gameplan would normally be to give the ball to Larry Johnson 40 times anyhow. Against the Colts, he might rush for 600 yards.

    Love how all the credit goes to Huard, yet none goes to the coach who rallied the team around a aging backup quarterback when all looked lost early. These guys were what, 1-3? 1-4? It's easy to just throw in the towel and call it a season.

    Jeff Garcia is getting all the credit for Philly ... but Andy Reid deserves a ton, too. Ditto for Vince Young and Jeff Fisher.

    For reasons I dont know, only a handful of coaches get accolades in this league ... Parcells and Belichick.

    It's weird I tell ya.

    Oz, you're not trying to say Vermeil had a better year coaching the Chiefs two years ago than Herm did this year, are you? Because you'd be wrong.

    No Willie Roaf, no Tony Richardson, no Priest Holmes, no bona fide wide receiver ... you are right Herm deserves some credit. Probably a lot. Beat Cleveland or Miami and we might be talking about Herm for coach of the year.

    BYH: Wittingly or unwittingly - or even half-wittingly - in your analysis and keen insight, you've single-handledly solved the single most important mystery in the pro football universe this year:

    Herm Edwards is the coach Michael Vick needs to reach the divine state of godliness his fanboys say he deserves. BWAHAHAHA!!!!

    Hounds, please pick the white courtesy phone ...
