So they had a little coin flip to figure out picks 3-5 in the Draft this April and Kansas City ended up with number five after Atlanta won the first toss. If Atlanta had lost that first toss there would have been another toss between the Chiefs and Falcons for #4.
Well according to genius KC coach Herm Edwards, he didn't even want that opportunity....
“I didn’t want a chance to flip,” Edwards said. “I wanted to be five. That was a good number for us. Five is good. I just felt all along we were going to be five. I thought Atlanta would win the coin toss.”Right Herm...riiiight. Because that makes complete sense. I mean four is higher than five, but who cares right? And you wondered why I made fun of ESPN's decision to hire him as an analyst for the playoffs.
Sure you can argue the more money factor, but I always thought that was a bunch of b.s.
