“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Herman Lee "Herm" Edwards, Jr. is the American football head coach of the National Football League's Kansas City Chiefs. He played the position of cornerback for ten seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams and Atlanta Falcons. Prior to his coaching career, Edwards was known best as the player who recovered a fumble by Giants quarterback Joe Pisarcik on a play that has been dubbed by some as "The Miracle at the Meadowlands."
Before being hired as the tenth head coach in Kansas City Chiefs history, Edwards was the head coach of the New York Jets from 2001-2005. He is infamous for his gameday terminology, known by fans as "Hermisms," including the quote and sound bite, "You play to win the game!", a message that Edwards gave during a New York Jets press conference. It also became the title of his book, a collection of "leadership lessons" for the reader to use as personal motivation.
