I should add that if the Chiefs do sign a veteran, they'll likely spend their second-round pick on N.C. State's Mike Glennon. I've heard from a very reliable source that Pioli really likes Glennon. Mel Kiper, by the way, stated that Glennon could be the first signal-caller off the board, so maybe the Wolfpack product will be the quarterback who rises to the top of the draft.
I'm liking Glennon more myself. Geno is not doing it for me.
I'm going with Geno Smith. He had a decent game today, even though his team didn't win. I think he's a better fit for the Chiefs than Barkley. You gotta like the way he throws the football.
Can't blame Chiefs fans at all for being gunshy about taking a USC QB. None of the more recent ones from USC has had much in the way of post-season success.
I will say it again, though. Whoever the next QB is, the Chiefs brass ( minus Pioli, I hope ) must make damn sure that he has a good O-Line in front of him that can pass-block and keep him upright and give him time to throw. Or else we'll see another David Carr or another version of Matt Cassel getting beaten into a zombie.
I'm surprised David Carr is not dead with as many times he's been sacked
