From Herm Edwards‘ press conference when he was hired with the Chiefs…he promised he wouldn’t change the offense.
“Q: You’ve been labeled a conservative coach. How do you approach this offense?”
Edwards: “Like I said before, it sounds like I’m conservative but as I keep saying it’s the players you play with. It might look conservative at times but I’m going to play to players’ strengths. I’m going to do that. These players on offense obviously have the ability to score. I’m not going to all of a sudden say you’re only allowed to score seven points a quarter. I’m not going to do that. I’m a football coach. I can coach anything that you give me: good players, great players, that’s what your job is as a coach.”
“Obviously, this offense has been prolific in the last three or four seasons. They can score points. I am not dumb. You don’t change things just to change. You don’t have to change. I think sometimes people would expect when a new coach comes in well he’s going to change this, he is going to change that. No, I am going to evaluate everything. Keep scoring 30 points I like that. That is a good thing.”
- 2004 – Jared Allen
- 2003 – Larry Johnson and Dustin Colquitt
5 drafts…4 players still on the team. Completely unacceptable.
