    Herm Trashes Old Offensive Playbook

    Herm Trashes Old Offensive Playbook
    1/03/08 at 8:19 am; ChiefsWarpath.com

    [Kansas City.com] The playbook responsible for the recent high-scoring Chiefs teams but also the worst offense in club history was dumped in the trash when offensive coordinator Mike Solari was fired.
    Coach Herm Edwards said the Chiefs would take their offense in a different direction next season. Its exact course won’t be determined until Solari’s replacement is hired.

    Edwards wouldn’t confirm or deny any names on his wish list, but sources indicated he planned to speak with Texas-El Paso offensive coordinator Eric Price. The son of UTEP head coach Mike Price, the 41-year-old Eric Price once coached as an offensive assistant for Edwards with the New York Jets.

    Jacksonville quarterbacks coach Mike Shula also could become a candidate. Shula was the coordinator for Tampa Bay in the late ’90s while Edwards was the Bucs’ secondary coach. Shula later was the head coach at Alabama when Brodie Croyle quarterbacked the Crimson Tide.

    Edwards said the new coordinator would have experience whether it’s in the NFL or college. Solari was a career offensive-line coach and was new to game-planning and play-calling.

    Edwards indicated the new system might incorporate some features of the West Coast offense, but it would have many different wrinkles. That would seem to rule out the return of former Chiefs offensive coordinator Paul Hackett.

    “I don’t want to call it the West Coast because when you call it that, people say, ‘Oh, that’s a bunch of little, short passes.’ ” Edwards said. “That’s not what we’re going to do. We’re not going to be throwing it in the flat all day. Call it the Chiefs offense, whatever that is.”

    Re: Herm Trashes Old Offensive Playbook

    Oh I'm sure the same crappy play calling and boring offense Herm is known for will still remain. Just a different face as his puppet OC probably. Think running LJ to death last season possibly caught up with him this year when he was banged up?

    I'm sick of the same old crap with the Chiefs. Carl Peterson needs to go if they ever are going to win consistently again. They'll put a band-aid fix on things like they always do, barely make the playoffs then lose in the first round and pat themselves on the back for a job well done again eventually too.

    Only way to fix the Chiefs is to fire Carl Peterson!

    Herm Edwards needs to go with the rest of the coaches that he fired. The Chiefs will never be more than mediocre with him leading the team. The best we can hope for is 9 wins.

    Herm needs to get out of his comfort, and stay away from the guys he worked with in Tampa Bay and New York. They never scored there either. I agree, go after Cam Cameron, he could help them beat the Chargers as well.
