I am not over it. It's going to be the same old garbage we have experienced the past 4 seasons.
Where have I ever said I was satisfied with Cassel Find me a post where I say lets keep Cassel find me 1 I beg you. STOP PUTTING WORDS IN MY MOUTH I have said over and over again Cassel needs to go. Just because I blame the D when they suck instead of putting a loss on Cassel alone does NOT mean I'm satisfied with Cassel.
But keep whining I'm done with it you will never give Smith even a chance So like I told you with Cassel when you ignored the failings of others Keep hating it's all your doing.
I dont care what our qb's name is and will be, as long as its the best available. A Smith clearly does not fit that catagory. There are at least 5 qb's in the draft that would be better suited for the Chiefs and would cost a whole heck of a lot less. Quite possible we could have picked one of these with the wasted 2nd round pick we are giving up for A Smith. Rumor is we are giving up next years 2nd round pick as well. Giving up this much for a backup qb (if we gave 2 2nds) will hurt us for a long time.
You must have forgot what Alex's record was before he had the GREAT OL he had in San Fran.
You sound like a broken record every year. "Just give him a chance." I heard the same thing with Cassel. I have seen Alex Smith play and he is a slightly better version of Matt Cassel. Even with Harbaugh his stats are very COMPARABLE to Cassel's, and in some ways worse.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around this. Dunno if I like it or not. Lots of pros and cons.....
If the #2 this year and a conditional #2 next year are true then we probably paid too much.
And like everyone else I am depressed to see us YET AGAIN picking up someone else's retread.
But what choice did we really have?
I don't see any QB in the draft that is sure to come in and light things up from day one.
And I am sure Reid has been told "IMPROVE THINGS NOW!". So it was almost inevitable we were going to pick up some team's retread for at least the short term.
If that is what we were going to do then I am not sure how much better we were going to do than Smith.
So I guess I am OK with Smith. Maybe.
I guess what will really decide things for me is if the Chiefs draft a QB this year and make an honest effort to develop him.
If Reid thinks Smith is our QBOTF then I am going to be PISSED!
If Reid got Smith to get us out of the sewer while he develops a QBOTF then I'm OK with it.
I just wish like hell their was a really amazing QB in the draft this year. But their doesn't seem to be.
Dorsey and Reid are supposed to be real hot-shot personel guys. And outside of QB, we're not far from being a damned good team.
Getting Smith will eventually prove to be the smartest or the stupidest thing we have ever done. I am hoping for the former.
Yes and I was right about that. Our qb's suck, and when you bring one in that is similar to Cassel I have no choice but to complain.
But maybe I should get excited about a guy who averaged 187 ypg and had comparable YPG, YPA, QBR to Cassel. We even traded a 2nd round pick for him and even more!
