Collins leaves Chiefs to sign on with Washington

By ELIZABETH MERRILL
The Kansas City Star

Todd Collins’ eight-year run as Kansas City’s reliable backup is over. Collins agreed to a two-year deal with Washington on Tuesday, his agent, Brad Blank, said.

Collins is joining former Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders in Washington, and his departure leaves a big hole on Kansas City’s quarterback depth chart. Collins, 34, was Trent Green’s backup for five years. But it didn’t equate to much playing time, as he completed just 18 of 27 passes for 229 yards and one touchdown.

Weeks before the Chiefs were to start the 2005 season, Green was sidelined when he had a stent placed in his leg. But Collins was out with a broken hand.

Kansas City’s only backup with NFL playing experience is Damon Huard. Two other quarterbacks on the roster — seventh-round draft pick James Kilian and CFL star Casey Printers — have yet to take a snap in the NFL.

That does kinda scare me... I mean, Trent is getting older and Collins wasn't going to set the world on fire, but he was a solid backup.. now look at what we are left with

2005: "If Trent Green goes down, we're screwed"

2006: "If Trent Green goes down, we're screwed"

So far, I see no reason to panic. It's not like teh 0dd T0dd (did I get that right) was ever the answer. He was about as useful to us as Dexter McCleon. At least now it looks like we're bringing in some youth behind Trent. Much more important, IMO.

you guys are being sarcastic, but this could really suck.

I had little doubt he could keep us afloat if green got hurt for a week or 2.

Even if we get a bad-ass, he won't know the system - be as familiar with the receivers and o-line.

It could really hurt us this year.

Actually, I'd say Todd was MUCH more useful that Dexter.... Todd never was a liability.

The Skins gave him a 5 year 45 million dollar contract with 15 million in guarantees. His cap hit in the 2006 season is 34 dollars and change.

How do you know that... Todd Collins never played. This is the same guy who couldn't beat out 87 year old Warren Moon for the back-up role a few years ago.

The only asset he offered was the fact he knew the offense really well and him and Trent got along (I assume).

i dont think we will notice, when he came in he didnt look too great despite the #'s

I actually think saying "Trent won't get hurt" is bad karma... kinda like saying "I never get parking tickets"... the next ****ing day you get a parking ticket.

I think it's a GOOD move for karma to be fully aware that you don't want to **** with her.

I don't think Karma will mess with Trent anymore, it already ****ed his leg up in a season in which he could have won the SB. Now look at the guy who took his place and what's happened to him. It's Trents time for good Karma now. Even though I don't believe in Karma. In fact, **** you Karma!

This was a great pick up for the Skins. For AS to bring him in is like bringing in an assistant coach that knows this offense inside and out. He will be a great asset to them.

On the flip side for KC it is time to groom the future QB. It is time to really start thinking about life without Trent. Although I feel he can play as long as the o-line stays dominant.

exactly..... the only guy Collins ever beat out for number 2 is Huard.
I think there are at least one or two on this board that could do that.
Good riddance. Now we are forced to find that potential QBOTF!!

Hmmm....

Im really going to miss Todd's annual showing in the preseason. We're going to miss that 210/240 for 25 yards passing display.

Hopefully Herm puts his money where his mouth is and takes a shot at a legit QBOTF in the draft...

Huard has to have younger legs than Collins.

Collins was overrated. Hell, Endelt's grandma could hold that clipboard better anyway.

Finally, a reason to get off the dime and develop a REAL quarterback of the future. It was never going to be Collins, who was a servicable backup. Probably the best thing for KC in the long run.

You can all go to hell. 0dd T0dd was my boy. After he beat out Johnathan Quinn, you all didn't really have anything to complain about other than "he sucks." He never got a ****ing chance, and the chance he was given in preseason he was fantastic.

Oh well. I hope Killian beats out Printers because I don't want Michael Vick Jr. running this team after Trent is gone.

Could it hurt short term? Maybe. But really, was Collins going to save a team that lost it's starting QB? I doubt it. Losing your #1 QB is hard on almost every team. Collins wasn't going to save us from that.
