Tomás Ó Sé has doubts whether the current Kerry senior management team can deliver an All-Ireland title.
Heading up that team is Peter Keane, who on Saturday watched on as the Kingdom were edged out by a point by Tyrone in the All-Ireland semi-final. It's now 2014 since Sam Maguire last resided in the county - an overly long time in minds of Kerry folk who are known to voice strong opinions after any championship defeat.
For Keane, it's the end of a three-year term at the helm. He was, not surprisingly, non-committal about his future when he spoke to the waiting media in the bowels of Croke Park on Saturday evening.
On The Sunday Game, the topic of Keane's future was brought up with Colm O'Rourke saying: "There will be a lot of question marks on him now. The world failed is harsh. Kerry against Dublin two years ago [All-Ireland final] seemed to have the game for the taking and then lost it in the replay, then lost against Cork last year and then they lost against Tyrone.
"I would say a lot of people in Kerry would have the knives out for him. Maybe that's unfair. Managers in Gaelic football now are like Premiership managers. If you don't succeed you could get the brush."
That said, the former Meath star said he would like to see him "get another year".
Kevin McStay, also speaking on the programme, was more inclined to highlight the pluses with regard to league and Munster success.

Still hurting from Kerry's semi-final failure, Tomás Ó Sé was quite pointed in his take on where Kerry currently stand.
"I don't want to be disrespectful but nobody remembers National Leagues, and the way the Munster Championship is at the moment it doesn't stand for much the way it is and the competition that's down there.
"In 2019 against Dublin we should have won the first day; 2020 against Cork was an absolute disaster and then Tyrone yesterday.
"Tactically you can question that they weren't ready for what Tyrone was going to throw at them.
"Does management matter? I think it does.
"Look at Tyrone, for example, this year. Different management came in with a different style of play and they tweaked a few things and reinvigorated players.
"You take Seán O'Shea and David Clifford out of that team and their 16 points [against Tyrone] - what else did they give after that?
"Has the team come on from where they were?
"Is this team capable of winning [an All-Ireland]? Yes, I think this team is capable of winning an All-Ireland. Do I think the current management can bring them there? I don't think so."
