    When I first heard of this a couple hours ago I was pretty ticked because I thought the Chiefs had to of given up the 1st pick as well as some later or future picks. But getting Cassel and Vrable for a second rounder only is highway robbery, almost unbeleivable. So this just confirms my faith that Pioli is going to turn the Chiefs into a Championship team. The one downer on this is, I did believe Thigpen had earned the right to start this year. But in the end it's about the team, not one player. Plus it sure dosen't hurt to have 2 capable QB's. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    I think I heard that we are giving our second round draft pick and one next year depending on performance. Don't think that is a steep price to pay for a QB that's ready to start right away. I wonder how many more Patriots are gonna be lured this way before it's all said and done.

    Actually I bet we swapped 1st rounders and gave them 1 or 2 later round picks. If we end up with Alex Mack with a late 1st rounder, it wouldn't be terrible I suppose.

    Kind of curious because what player at #3 would the Pats be chasing? Curry perhaps.
    I think this was a great trade! We finally have a star QB!

    This pickup irritates me a lil giving up just a second rounder is great but how does this hurt our cap room for more FA. I would really hate to see Thigpen and Cassel go into camp and to know a qb making 15+ million for that year is riding a bench while our much cheaper QB is in the game. There is a QB contraversy in KC and since Thigpen lead our system last year it is his job to lose and lose it honestly. Competition is good one of these two QB's will show they are better. Thigpen really impressed me last season. Cassell impressed me also, but my hat at the moment tips a lil further to Thigpen. From a personal perspective I would like to see thigpen win the battle but form a financial standpoint I hope Cassell will. time will tell. It is a great second round pick up though.

    This was a heck of a move in my opinion. We got 2 quality players for just a 2nd rounder. Very nice.

    Hope all you want, but it isn't happening.

    There's no competition next season. Cassel has the starting job, and he'll have to do very, very terrible to lose it.

    I step away from my computer for 5 minutes and the entire franchise is completely different when I get back. nice.


    I LOVE the trade. I honestly wouldn't have been too horribly against drafting Sanchez if he was still available in the 2nd and we landed Cassel AND Vrabel for our 2nd pick!! OUTSTANDING trade. Trading ONE pick for TWO players is also a big plus.

    LOVE IT
