    Default David Garrard : a Pioli-type of acquisition?


    0 Not allowed!
    I know quite a few Chiefs fans have images of quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and RGIII dancing in their heads, and while most fans would agree that Matt Cassel isn't the present or long term answer, I just don't see Scott Pioli making a big splash by bringing in a big name in free agency or drafting a quarterback in the early rounds.

    A player that I have honestly forgotten about is David Garrard. Now, before I hear a collective sigh from you guys, let me explain why I mention him.

    I hate to say it, but I believe that Scott Pioli is still determined to support Matt Cassel as much as possible and I think with keeping Jim Zorn as quarterback coach and bringing in Brian Daboll who like Cassel is from the Patriot family tree and more than likely will have a system Matt is somewhat familiar with, Pioli has shown he is willing to stick with Cassel.

    Now, Crennel and Pioli have stated they want to see a competition at quarterback, but I don't see the team bringing in a Manning or drafting a RGIII.

    I can see Pioli being interested in bringing in someone like David Garrard. Garrard isn't going to likely command much of a contract and at the age of 34 also likely isn't going to be looking for a starting role promised out of the gate. I would think if the Chiefs showed interest, the opportunity to come to Kansas City and compete with Cassel would be attractive.

    Also, Garrard brings experience that could also be viewed as a positive for both Cassel and Ricky Stanzi. Plus, and possibly most importantly, I think Pioli would view Garrard as that veteran presence that would push Cassel, but not really be a threat to push him to the bench. I am definitely not saying I agree with this idea, but I could see it being a definite consideration by Pioli.

    I definitely don't think there will be alot of interest in Garrard outside of being a veteran backup, and I think he would bring just enough to the table that should Cassel struggle out of the gate, we wouldn't have another Palko situation...while providing the team with a veteran #2 to let Stanzi continue to gain experience.

    Aside from Manning, the only names I have much interest in are Orton and Kolb, with a wide gap between Orton (#1) and Kolb.

    ... or the part where he said:



    How could you possibly get that Nick is talking about bringing in Garrard to replace Cassel as a starter from that?



    I'm not sure who this "Gerald" chick is. We were talking about David Garrard. Also, when you start a sentence you can push the "shift" key to create a capital letter. That key should also be used to capitalize proper names like "Cassel," "Orton," and "Gerald," or "Gerold," (whoever that is).

    It also makes your posts much easier to read when you end a sentence with a period. And I have no idea what the words "id," "csn," or "legitment" mean. Don't they teach you this stuff in school?
    Do you feel better about yourself for putting someone else down. Pretty disrespectful if you ask me. If you sir don't understand what he said then don't reply to it. I understood and agree with his statement.

    No, actually I feel really bad about it and would like to take this opportunity to apologize for that post. I had had a few drinks that night and just went off, but that is no excuse for my rude behavior.

    Everybody makes typographical errors from time to time (including me) and I don't feel a need to point them out. One of my pet peeves is when people don't use any capitalization or punctuation. It just irritates me (irrationally so), but that is my problem, not the original poster's.

    I felt bad about it shortly after I posted it, but unfortunately this forum (unlike many others that I post on) doesn't allow you to edit or delete posts more than 10 minutes after you post them. I don't understand the reason for that.

    Nobody commented on my rude and inappropriate post for three days and I was hoping it would just get buried and forgotten. But now that you have brought it back up to the top of the page, I need to do the right thing and apologize.

    So, again, I'm sorry. My actions were inexcusable and I will try to use better judgment in the future.

    Taking the high road here is commendable and appreciated.

And I think very unfavorably of the opinion that Garrard, Campbell or any other of the current crop of rejects are, or have the potential to be, better than Cassel. You want to talk about drafting, let's do it. But to say any of these guys mentioned are even close to as good as (2x Pro Bowler)Cassel shows a lack of basic football knowledge. Just my opinion-I attach no other significance to it and I AM NOT going to try to speak for other Chiefs fans.
    I'm just asking, what other Pro Bowl besides 2011 did Cassel go to? I cannot find it.

    Pretty sure that was the first he didn't buy a ticket to attend.
