The question should be what do you want to give up for a QB in the next draft?
Im not sure I would be willing to make a trade as big as Washington's to get the consensus #1. If we were able to trade D.Bowe now, it would make it easier, since we would have more draft picks, but it is going to be hard to get anything for D.Bowe at this point in the season with his contract.
We also have to consider what ctchiefsfan said that if we draft a QB (and give away our next 2 drafts to do so) by the time he would be considered elite, guys like Hali, DJ, JC, Albert, Winston may be considered on the downslope of their careers, and we wouldnt have the draft picks to be able to replace them.
I can't waste this year thinking about the draft. I think the chiefs should open
Up the passing game against the bucs, here they think the chiefs are just gonna run the ball so why not surprise them. I think this team is stacked with talent and can go as far as they want. They need to lay a beat down on

We need to do whatever it takes and trade to a spot we can draft one. I prefer gano Smith, but my view may change by April. Trading up would hurt us some, but should be well worth it. A good, accurate, mobile, QB would make an amediate impact, would work wonders with our run game, and would also keep the Defense off the field. With a real QB the star players you mentioned would be more likely to resign. Obviously Albert contract runs out this year.
What we don't want the Chiefs to do is "To Do Business as Usual" as that is likely to bring the same results.
20 years without a playoff win doesn't cut it.
