How about this T-shirt slogan? WWLS? (What Would Lamar Say?) Oh, my goodness, he would not have been pleased with any of the three games the Chiefs have played so far. But you know what? This has gone far beyond Coach Herm Edwards and GM Carl Peterson. Despite their best efforts, we have reached the point of no-return with our beloved Chiefs. The team.. more than showing us their missed tackles or puny offensive output.. is showing its fans that the franchise is a directionless downward spiral. Our Chiefs do not appear to have a long-range plan of getting into the playoffs and advancing toward its 2nd Super Bowl victory since Lenny and the boys did it eons ago.
Where is Lamar's son.. Clark Hunt.. in all this? Is he only satisfied with the financial outlook of the franchise? Is he one to say that given time.. Herm and Carl are the guys who can lead us to the promised land? Or is he in the same frame of mind as William Clay Ford, he of the Ford family in Detroit who is completely fed up with their General Manager, former FOX commentator Matt Millen. (Lions are also 0-3.) Reporters cornered Ford yesterday and asked him if Millen should go.
He said, "yes, that decision is not up to me. I don't run the team. But he should go."
Who is running the team here? Just like Mr. Ford, we need to see Clark Hunt's face and hear his voice so he can tell us not to worry. Or he may tell Coach Edwards and GM Peterson that they should REALLY worry.. about their jobs. Ralph
