Quin finds a job

In this case, I’m going to enjoy saying “I told you so”. Quin Snyder was never meant to coach the Missouri Tigers. And apparently, he wasn’t meant to coach much of anyone. After seeing his stock fall faster than Enron, Quin has landed a job coaching some NBA developmental team in Texas. Since his teams NEVER played defense, or played together as a team, then the NBA is the right spot for him!

Best wishes to Trent Green

Trent Green — a class act all the way — finally got his wish with a trade to Miami. This is a win-win for both parties. Trent gets to continue as a starting QB in a system that he knows intimately, while the Chiefs continue to get younger. C’mon, you can’t rebuild a team with a 37 year old quarterback.

Some insightful comments from recent articles about the subject:

  • The Chiefs continue to get younger at every position. It was plain to everyone after Green struggled down the stretch last season that he wasn’t the same quarterback he was before the concussion…This game is brutal and at times extremely unfair, but for a franchise in transition like the Chiefs, difficult decisions have to be made. As one Chiefs player told me last night, Edwards wants younger players who make plays, and that was ultimately the deciding factor in pushing Green away. (Nick Athan, WarpaintIllustrated.com)
  • In retrospect, Green grew up in Kansas City. He became the quarterback he always believed he’d be. After a series of close calls as a starter, he arrived in Kansas City with the recommendation of his good friend Dick Vermeil. (Nick Athan, WarpaintIllustrated.com)
  • Green over six seasons was the Chiefs’ most productive passer this side of Len Dawson. Yet among quarterbacks starting for more than one season, Green’s .545 regular-season winning percentage leaves him just eighth in franchise history. He ranks behind Joe Montana, Steve Bono, Dawson, Dave Krieg, Steve DeBerg, Rich Gannon and Elvis Grbac. (Jonathan Rand, KCChiefs.com)
  • By throwing for more than 4,000 yards from 2003-2005, Green joined Peyton Manning, Dan Marino and Dan Fouts as the only passers to top that figure for at least three straight years. True believers in power football will gleefully point out that those three quarterbacks have only one Lombardi Trophy between them – the one Manning helped the Colts win last season. (Jonathan Rand, KCChiefs.com)
  • Bottom line — a good six-year run for Trent Green, lots of individual honors & accolades, but no playoff victories. It’s time to move on with fond memories.
