It's true. Herman Edwards has accepted an offer to coach in the new pro football league that is forming.
Apparently, Herm is approaching this opportunity with the same philosiphy as he used in Kansas City; DRAFT YOUNG!!
In an unprecedented move, Edwards has begun drafting 4th graders from a local elementary school to be on his starting line up.
Herm was overheard preaching his new mantra "You play to win extra time at recess" to his young group of future players.
Practice was held at the "Tater Tot" after school daycare center. Sources close to the daycare told us that after a grueling 4 minute practice, Herm was seen reviewing tape of Spongebob escaping from Plankton as inspiration to get his players to; and I quote "Do something".
Herm has reportedly already assembled his coaching staff en toto by hiring the entire crew of Sesame Street muppets. Snufalupagus was to lead the offensive unit but unfortunately only Big Bird can see him so that plan was scrapped in favor of Herm's "imaginary friend".
Herm, in an effort to avoid injury to his players, has apparently decided against wearing pads in practice, opting instead to have his players wear underoos, just as a precaution.
One 6 year old was overheard telling Herm that his "genius" was showing, to which herm replied "excuse me" before turning to check his zipper.
As an added incentive to play well, Herm has promised that those who make the final cut will be rewarded with a trip to McDonalds for happy meals.
Herms' team will have their first preseason game in November when they take on the Teletubbies in an untelevised game to be played only after his players have had their nappy time.
