    If the Dolphins are willing to offer the 54th overall pick, the Chiefs should just take it and move on.

    Actually, since there were no elite QB options available to upgrade the worst QB situation in the NFL, they traded their above average LT plus a 2nd round swap for an above average QB and got an elite level LT at #1.


    Branden Albert's positional value < Alex Smith's positional value.


    But you go on believing that the Chiefs took a lateral move.

    Vermeil wouldn't have had a pick at #5... he would've traded that pick LOOOOOOOOONNNNG before he even got around to thinking about who he'd take at that spot. Vermeil and Peterson are primarily responsible for the hole this franchise has been in for the better part of the last decade.

    You know full well that Pioli did more than his share to keep them in the hole. But, I agree, that the drafting done by Peterson and Vermeil was awful, except for a couple picks. But, I still say that IF Vermeil had that #5 pick in 2010, he takes Okung.

    Miami let their starting LT walk in free agency and is now looking to give up a second rounder to take a step down from what they previously had, and would move up in the first to get a LT but also need to keep their picks to replace a starting Corner they let also get signed in Free agency.

    Why can't people realize that ithere is two sides to every signing. It is not the Chiefs telling Albert they don't want him and take a hike. It is Albert causing the issue by expecting to be made king, and publicly posting his stubborn attitude about it.

    If the Chiefs play their cards right...This could work out well. We could draft another QB as insurance in the second round.

    It's not that Albert is a bad player, but the bottom line is if you've invested a large amount of money & draft picks in a QB like Alex Smith (who's coming off of injury) the last thing you want is a LT that's getting ready to throw a Larry Johnson style hissyfit if his contract doesn't have what he wants, franchise tag or no.

    How do you know he is elite? He has never played a single snap in the NFL. We traded a LT to get a slight upgrade at LT and then traded TWO second round picks for a game manager. But don't take the game manager comment from me, take it from your boy Derrick Johnson, that is what he said when he was asked about Alex Smith. Atleast Geno or a young qb can be developed into something more than a game manager.

    And that's what we need, another game manager.

    Great, so you're comparing us with Miami now. I'm sure they don't regret taking Matt Ryan, but hey why take a risk when you can play it conservative and pick a solid LT! Don't set the bar too high!

    I remember when Miami drafted a LT #1, passed on Matt Ryan, and continued to search for a solution at QB for the next 5 years.

    He could be he could be a total bust. Stop acting like it's a sure thing. Geno has done nothing to give you any impression that he's a sure thing you pimp the guy out like you owe him money. The fact is there is NO ONE that has geno worthy of the top pick. He wasn't even the best player at his pro day but we should take him with the best pick in the draft no question? Stop it. He could be good in the NFL he could be a total bust don't act like there is no question about it and that we are stupid for not taking him. We got a QB that has done something in the NFL. You really need to get over the Geno thing or just go root for the team that takes him.

    This Miami comparison would work if it were not for 1 little thing. Miami didn't go out that offseason and trade for a QB that year. THey didn't go trade for a QB who had a playoff win under his belt and had his team close to the superbowl. Outside of that little fact it works
