Since I believe in giving credit where credit is due, here's a little blurb from Adam Teicher's latest article that I think merits some attention for the sake of a guy that many on our board rip on regularly.
Some doubted Jason Whitlock's conspiracy theory about Peterson planning to move up in the organization to maintain control while divorcing himself from running the football side of things directly. But apparently that's exactly what Carl Peterson was discussing with Clark Hunt until Hunt forced Peterson to resign.
Hunt and Peterson discussed various scenarios that could have kept Peterson with the Chiefs, including one in which Peterson would have stayed as president but yielded control over the football side. As Hunt said, though, the decision was made that Peterson would step completely away.
I realize that Whitlock is abrasive and often makes assessments that come off as more wild accusation than substantiated reporting, but just thought it merited pointing out that he does get some of the big stories right.
