Tyler Thigpen has been traded to the Miami Dolphins for an undisclosed draft pick. ESPN reporting.

Yep... kind of sad to see him go, but it's for the best. I think if he can work on his accuracy he can be pretty good. He can probably do some things for them in the wildcat too.

Good pick up for Miami. He should end the season as their starter since Henne and Pat White aren't ready.

As far as KC goes, I hope they got at least a 4/5th rounder for him

I'm guessing it's a 5th.

Hate to see him go but we can use all the draft picks we can get. Draft pick probabaly depends on how much he plays.

This also frees up a roster spot... I've heard rumbling about Lance Long, the receiver we signed to the practice squad from Arizona, being brought up. He's a Todd Haley favorite, which is strange because I thought Haley hated all his players.

A fifth rounder? So, basically, we traded Thigpen for Colin Brown... because that's apparently what we're going to get with our 5th rounders.

Sounds about right to me. I liked Thigpen last year even though we only won once with him. I'm glad he might start in Miami.

All you seem to do is call people out for projecting their feelings and ideas on a FORUM! But I will leave it at that and not turn this thread into an argument... That is the worst.

Unfortunately I cant remember the last chiefs 5th rounder worth talking about. hopefully we get some value but I wish thigpen well. These are dismal times... hard to optimistic. I think a win would help... haha

I was jumping on someone who said that our pick was gonna be a bust. I find that hard to believe when we don't know what round pick it is, we don't know who is gonna be making the pick nor do we know who will be available to be picked. That is why I said something. If we are going to assume every pick is gonna be a bust then why watch this team? Its like saying you know we are going to suck forever without anything to back it up. I guess I am just one who is tired of hearing posts like this for 3 years.

We could talk about Dante Hall Round 5 1998 draft. Best kick returner we have ever had.

Yeah good call. I thought he was a fourth for some reason... I wonder if the pick is conditional to performance. If so that would could end up in our favor. With pennington all but done and henne and white not really able to cut it.. Thig could put up some great numbers in that offense. We may end up seeing a 4th yet.

Interesting news to come home to. They were just talking about how Philly will probably let Garcia go again soon because the Eagles don't need 4 QB's. So I was thinking well the Chiefs also have 4 QB's and I wonder how long that will last. Then Thigpen is let go.

I think the Chiefs will regret this decision. I can easily see both Croyle and Cassel going down at the same time.

I thought Thigpen looked pretty good at times last year. The ability to run, with our o-line, is a really nice asset to have.

Maybe Hailey has some diamond in the rough waiting in the wings. However, I see this a pretty cynical move.

Thigpen did look pretty good at times last year. But this year? He has looked pretty poor all through pre-season.

Thigpen has always been terrible at best in a normal offense though... there won't be any regrets. With Hailey gone, any chance of us ever running the Pistol Spread ever again went out the window.

Brandon Carr

2007
Kolby Smith

2005
Boomer Grigsby (cut by Miami because he was hurt, having a good year.)

2003
Bobby Wade (Chicago)

2002
Scott Fujita (Now with the Saints)

2000
Dante Hall

Should I go further back, or look at other teams?

josh1971
09-29-2009, 10:03 PM
Dude- you could hardly call Boomer Grigsby a 5th Rounder worth talking about. Drafted as a LB, he ended up amassing the pro-bowl-worthy total of 28 tackles in 4 years. When he couldn't hack it as a LB, KC couldn't bear to part ways with him, so we made him a FB, where he had a great year catching the ball out of the backfield- with 2 rec. for 14 yards.

The good year he was having in Miami in 2008? 1 tackle in 1 game.

Just sayin'

McLovin
09-29-2009, 10:06 PM
Not sure they will pan out yet but Sean Ryan and Ryan O'Callahan are also 5th rounders.

By the way if we get a 4th, Jared Allen was a 4th.

And he wasn't our draft pick but Tony Pashos was a 5th rounder.

To put it in one perspective, we picked up Thiggy after he was released (Minny wanted to add him to the practice squad if I remember correctly) and now we are going to get probably a 5th rounder for him.
Also never know if he turns into the next Drew Brees (LOL) we may end up with a first round. :lol:

He did not look that good in the preseason - I can't argue with that. However, considering that he probably didn't get a lot of meaningful practice time, I think his play last year as a starter is a better indicator of what Thigpen can do.

I simply don't like us giving up on wins this season. I suppose time will tell but ...

Trading Thigpen does in no way mean we are giving up on wins, he wasn't going to play, because the other QB's did better than he did.. Period..

I like what he did last year, but unlike Cassel, Thigpen IS infact a system QB.. :)
He is horrible in a conventional dropback offense, so he should fit in nicely in Miami's wildcat.
Like I said, I liked what he did last year, so im actually glad that he got traded.. He will get a chance in a system where he fits in better.
He has way too much talent to be competing for the 3rd QB spot on any team. :)

I really hope you're right ... that our 3rd string quarterback won't see any playing time.

I really like Cassel. If he can stay healthy he will be great for us. Croyle has a history of getting injured though.

I love Thigpen and it's amazing what he did last season.

But come on guys, he doesn't fit into this offensive scheme. I think the Dolphins will quickly realize if they ever have to use him that he really struggles when he has to drop back and deliver, and I may be wrong but I don't think that team uses the shotgun very often.

That's a pretty good argument ... if both Cassel and Croyle don't go down at the same time for an extended period.

I can see it now ... we'll bring in Vinny Testaverde.

Anytime your top 2 QBs go down you can expect the worst.. no team can be expected to keep 3 good quarterbacks. There are starting positions that need to be improved way more than we need a QB3. Not having a QB3 is the least of our concerns right now.

A nice circular argument, a quality 3rd string quarterback is needed on this team because our offensive line is such that the first two strings could get injured. (Oh wait, where I have seen this scenario before?)

Yet we can't afford a quality third stringer because we have to do something about the offensive line.

Somewhere the circle MUST be broken.

I think all of us ( the fans ) need a win. But there is no reason to get ulcers worring about it. Lets be realistic, Pioli/Haley are still evaluating personnel. They not olny are trying to find out who can play, but who plays best with whom. Lets keep our hopes high that they will stop trying to but round pegs in square holes soon, very soon.
