I would much rather see them try and fail than to continuously NOT try at all.
If people cant see the picture this past season, then they never will. We are a good team other then the qb. Just look at all the probowlers, 6 of em. We cant make this stuff up. 6 probowlers and a record of 2 and 14. I do give the previous coaching staff blame, but the real blame lies on the managment for NOT addressing the qb. As I said all last season, the Chiefs are the best team to ever have the record they had. 2 and 14.
6 probowlers ond we get the #1 pick!
Only 6 teams had more probowlers then the team with the worst record.
There are 6 teams that did not have any pro bowl players, including the Chargers, who have a decent qb and nooo other talent to speak of.
This team is loaded I mean loaded with talent and we have only one real glaring need, but of coarse we can keep making the rest of the team better and hope the qb will magicly fix itself.
12 probowl players will not give us a winning record. We are a team and should be veiwed as such. No qb will mean no wins.
i don't understand why some believe if we don't take geno we have doomed ourselves and it is the end of the CHIEFS football world. a bit of an exageration yes, but there is life after geno. there are currently 5 QBs including geno that are projected probable nfl starters or at least getting a shot at starting for an nfl team depending on which team drafts them. each has differnt skill sets that the scouts like and EACH have flaws that worry them. geno is not the freakish specimen of a cam newton, nor the running ability of an RGIII, russel wilson or kaepernick nor the passer of a Luck, stafford, bradford etc. he may very well turn out to be a good/great nfl QB but that remains to be seen. the other 4 QB's may also be busts or end up being great QBs so picking any of them is a gamble with a slightly higer risk as u move down the draft board.
i agree we need to pick one or more QBs early in this draft but i would be happy w/any that Dorsey and Reid want to pick. i would be dissapointed however if the pick any of the #1 overall, just seems to be a waste of value. it would be like going to a store to buy a big screen tv on sale and buying it for 10% over the pre sale price. yes you still got the same tv but just paid way to much for it.
What is the worse case we bring in another teams reject, as some people call them and go 2-14 again next year and get a top 2 pick again and there may be some good QB coming out next year and we get one of those we have wasted one year but we have a good DE to replace Jackson or LT to replace Albert. If we draft Geno and he is a bust it will take 2-3 years to move on and draft another QB and we will still have a hole on the line instead of a stud.
remember drafting a QB #1 does not make him a #1 QB
if we drafted stanzi any higher would he be a better QB?
Fact of the matter is Alex Smith is a much better QB prospect than any of the QBs in this draft, and wouldn't have to waste a 1st overall pick on him. Also don't forget, he's only 29, he has plenty left in him. This would allow Chiefs to draft Star who many scouts predict as a dominant 3-4 DE, and that's something Chiefs need if they lose Dorsey this offseason and possibly Jackson soon after.
