    Herm Edwards getting lukewarm reception from publishers for his playbook

    Despite his years on the NFL sidelines, Kansas City Chiefs head coach Herm Edwards is getting almost no interest in his playbook from New York publishing houses.

    “It’s terrible. I just don’t think it works,” said one source at Scribner. “There is almost no cohesion, nothing that moves you forward. And I don’t think it can be saved with a re-write either. This is not the right career for Mr. Edwards.”

    But some in the industry feel there is a market for Edwards’ playbook.

    “I could see it as a humor book,” said one insider at Penguin. “Or, as one of those miniature books you give as gifts or for toilet reading. I think there are maybe 20 or 30 pages in there that could be salvaged with help on a rewrite from someone who knows something about football.”

    The high point of his career was returning Pisarcik's fumble...it's been all downhill since then.
