    Aaron Murray, a prolific passer at Georgia who saw his draft stock decline when he tore his ACL late in his senior year, has landed in Kansas City. The Chiefs selected Murray with a fifth-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft, No. 163 overall. Murray looks like a good fit for Chiefs coach Andy Reid’s…

Manziel is already getting that press and he has the ego to look for that attention.
    Michael Sam is closer to the Tebow media than Manziel

    I'm not trying to say alex was the problem. The whole offense just stopped producing.

    It's like when people tried to say 49ers lost that NFC title game to the giants because of the Returner but the offense was what... 0 for 11 on 3rd downs.

    They did lose because of the fumbled punts. Those were the deciding factor. It put the Giants Offense in point-blank scoring range. If he doesn't fumble the punts the chances of the Giants getting those deciding points is decreased quite significantly.

    Definitely agree about if Manziel would've fallen to the Chiefs...The phones would've been ringing with good offers.

    The problem with Manziel is this, he's a great college QB, but he was in a situation in Texas where he had a WR squad that could bail him out when he couldn't scramble, after the plays broke down. If he'd come to KC, we'd be putting our 1st round draft picks' future in the hands of Bowe and Avery, who didn't show any urgency to get to an open area or at least scramble in the same direction of the QB when the play broke down. Also, he'd be hitting the books trying to figure out Andy Reid's offense. As good as Manziel is (if Cleveland is patient with putting together an offense that fits him, they'll be competitive) he wasn't a great fit for the Chiefs.

    Well....Time to pish everybody off. I think Manziel could look pretty good in Reid's offense. I also think Bray and Murray can look pretty good in Reid's offense. And we know that Daniel can look pretty good in Reid's offense. He certainly did against San Diego with mostly our starters on the bench.

    In fact, I believe almost ANY quarterback who has high intelligence, a good work and study ethic and the athletic ability to tuck the ball and run when that is needed can look pretty good in Reid's offense. Give him some better receivers and tight ends than we have now and I think almost any QB on our roster now can look pretty damned good.

    Bray and Murray are question marks because we don't really know about their maturity and work ethic, but their is no doubt in my mind that both have the athletic ability to look pretty good in Reid's offense.

    I have doubts about Manzeil's ability to work with Reid because I suspect Manzeil has narcisism issues and Reid's offense is not one that makes the QB the center of attention. Reid's offense (at least IMO) is one that makes the QB an important part of a team effort rather than a stand alone superstar.

    He is going to end up a 10-14 year starter for the Chiefs. Might be the best pick in my life besides Dontari Poe. Loved it. SIt a year and then boom domination.

    I think that is optimistic, but I'd be thrilled if you were correct.

    Well, since this thread is about Murray and that he is now a Chief, it'll be up to Reid and the rest of the coaches to help him. Murray won't be another Joe Montana because Montana is incomparable and one of a kind. However, I do think Murray does compare very well to the guy in the picture below, whom Andy Reid said he wanted to get the next one of.

    That's right, Len Dawson. If Murray pans out like Dawson did, nobody can complain.
