And with Thursday nightís report by Foxís Jay Glazer that Cardinals offensive coordinator Todd Haley has accepted a job as the head coach of the Chiefs, itís possible Warner will view Kansas City as a viable alternative. :lol:

These two shall pass? With 2007 MVP Tom Brady (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/5228/;_ylt=AkRaGgklc7XdNJ2vg24kyPOr0op4) planning to return from the severe knee injury he suffered in the New England Patriots (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nwe/;_ylt=Aj5pJT56Lkz7z9TJZTBAXU6r0op4)í í08 opener, conventional wisdom suggests that career backup Matt Cassel (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/7406/;_ylt=ArS1rN3_ox7HK9MgvzBS02Cr0op4), who overcame a shaky start to emerge as a productive NFL passer, will be dealt to the highest bidder. The Pats franchised Cassel on Thursday, which would guarantee him a one-year salary of $14.65 million and tie up a significant portion of their cap Ė which, in theory, is merely a means of facilitating trade talks with a team like the Chiefs, Bears, Vikings, Lions or 49ers. Donít be shocked, however, if Cassel ends up spending the í09 season in New England. For one thing, there is still enough uncertainty about the pace of Bradyís recovery that Cassel, even at that price, might be kept on as an insurance policy. Also, as far-fetched as it might sound, donít put it past owners Robert and Jonathan Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick to come up with a multiyear package that might entice Cassel to stay on as Bradyís eventual successor. Best guess: Cassel sticks around for another year, makes serious coin as Bradyís backup and cashes in even more handsomely via trade or free agency at this time in 2010.

And what is wrong with Thigpen? Why don't we give a QB more of a chance then a few games. He played very good and if not for our D we could have easily been 11-12 wins last year.

i agree about thig dont know about 11-12 wins especially since he came in late. but he definantly showed signs of being a great qb for us. he had more touchdowns and yards then flacco and ryan. but in every bodys eyes they are the good young qbs. thigpen put up some awesome numbers but it comes down to wins. and tyler can thank herms defense for not helping him out. as far as warner coming to kc that is just stupid he would not last 1 game behind this line

No thanks the last thing we need is an aging quarterback. What does he have like 1 year left in him. I hate just temporarily filling a need that would be a awful move.

Kinda likle we did with Warren Moon.

The offense scored enough points to win several games last year, but the defense let us down. I remember thinking this would be a Top 10 defense as we were heading into the 2008 season. The lost of Allen combined with the underachievement of Dorsey and our LB's really hurt us. I thought the CB's played well though. Especially when you consider the kind of time that opposing Qb's had in the pocket.

Warner would be a 1 year solution for a team that is at least 2-3 years away from competing for an AFC championship.

and he would be a very unnecessary cap hit i think it would be a waste of time and money to bench thigpen for one year of warner

We lost 9 games by a TD or less. Thig averages what 20-21pts a game?? I say the defense lost those 9 games and we won 2 thats 11 wins right there not to mention everyother game but the 2 blow outs we could have been 14-2 last year. Thigpen is just fine he was even the 2nd highest point scoring QB in fantasy since he had started. And you guys want nothing more to get rid of him??

I think people are worried about Thigpen's 2nd half production and whether he can succeed in a non-spread offense. They also look at his height, his small school background, and the fact that he didn't win any close games this year as possible indicators that he's flash-in-the-pan.

My opinion is that we have no better options in 2009, and it's worth keeping him to see whether Thigpen can thrive with a real OL.

Not everyone feels this way, I for one believe that he should at least have the opportunity to compete for the starting job.

Our offense wasnt on the field when our defense got drove on in last minute of those games to lose it for us...

True, but he also didn't produce in the second halves of games. One of the reasons we kept blowing halftime leads is because we couldn't score in the 2nd half.

I think some of that had to do with Herms' inability at halftime adjustments. With Dick Curl and Herm gone, Hopefully Thig can get some coaching from somebody that knows what they're doing...

Oh, I agree. And I'm not saying that it was Thigpen's fault we lost the games. Only that it's an indicator that we should be reasonably concerned about. That it's too early to consider Thigpen a bust or a success - he's shown flashes of both.

They haven't said anything about personnel yet, either negative or positive. I'm sure we'll be hearing more as soon FA begins.
