I probably shouldnt have added a close date for the poll.
I will spell it out again:
What part of this don't people get?Quote:
The ILB position is NOT as important to the Chiefs right now as bolstering the QB position and trying to get the type of quality QB that they haven't had since Trent Green.
Wanting Te'o smacks more of hero-worship than from a football standpoint. The Chiefs can address the ILB position either via FA or draft one in later rounds or draft in 2014. It is NOT the teams biggest need at this point in time. Bolstering the QB position is. Quinn is still an unknown commodity, Cassel isn't the guy and Stanzi hasn't even shown that he warrants playing time.
Geno Smith, to me is a guy they have to consider because of his huge upside & he did turn in a big-time performance in a big-time game ( Orange Bowl, January 2012 ). Wanting him has nothing to do with hero worship, it's from a football standpoint to try and address a desperate need at the most important position.
Te'o is an excellent prospect, BUT he's not the right prospect for KC. Their biggest need -- once again, in case anyone missed it -- IS THE QUARTERBACK POSITION. And they need two of them in this upcoming draft, not just one.
To hell with the thought process of "there are no Lucks or RG3s in the 2013 draft" <---Don't stick your finger up your arse waiting for those two types to become available to KC because your finger is likely to get stuck there permanently. You are not going to get the so-called "can't miss" QB's available to draft every year. There really weren't any in 2011, and yet teams pulled the trigger on them early and often and we see close to a half a dozen young 2nd year QB's establishing themselves pretty well.
if u go to a restaurant and u fell like pizza, but the pizza there is not real good maybe fair at best, but they make a really great cheese steak, the best cheese steak hoagie in town and u really like cheese steak hoagies...what do u do?
The Chiefs have a starving need at QB and drafting Geno Smith isn't along the lines of eating things that would make a goat upchuck. It's more along the lines of the pizza or the hoagie.
Of course, if Pioli is doing the picking, he'll botch it somehow.
the analogy there is do you settle for something [someone] that you will not be satisfied with just because you really want it at the time?
