Wow. That changes my pick in the CP draft. I don't think they bring him in to be back up. I got some thinking to do.

It amazes me how the faiders still think they can win in the same fashion they did in the 70s by picking up castoffs and making unconventional free agency moves. I hope Al Davis lives to be 120. Fuggin faiders and their fans can never get enough ridicule in my book.

I don't know.

I'm pretty sure they didn't bring him in to be a back up, but they could easily have brought him in to hold down the fort, per se, while they develop a rookie, like a Lienart, or Cutler.

He only signed a 3 year contract, and depending on signing bonus, he could easily be released after one season without too much effect on the cap.

I wouldn't be so happy about this. Brooks can sling it and the Raiders have weapons.

I'd rather have Collins behind center in Oakland.

I think Brooks is an ok QB. I would've been happy with him coming to KC.

I agree with this.

Both can be inconsistent, but Brooks not nearly as bad as Collins.

He's also got escapability, while Collins is a statue.

Sweet! New Raider INT record this year?

Looks like it'll be a bit harder to sweep this year. Just based on the law of averages, if we play Brooks twice a year, we'll get one of his good games as well as a complete meltdown.

:shrug: Huh. Well, they need defense even more than us. But Lienart would be a great QBOTF. I don't know if Al wants to wait. Then there is the V. Davis TE. But again, if they don't have the D, they are not going anywhere no mater how good the O is. Hopefully the next two picks clear things up a little bit for me.

I think it's a good move when you consider they'll use the #7 pick most likely on one of the QBs in the draft. The rookie QB can sit on the bench and get up to speed while Brooks runs the show for at least a year.

i have to agree, but brooks does make a lot of mistakes as well.....


what the chiefs have to be concerned about is getting a better pass rush- and it won't matter as much who the opposing qb is.....

I'm not into doom and gloom offseason statements but another mobile QB in the AFC West is not good news for the Chiefs. Just more emphasis on how much we need a new Dline.

I agree...the Raiders could've done a lot worse

Alright but I'd have to have a strict rule against Brooks giving the rookie pointers.

I'd rather have Mel Brooks at QB.

Good signing imo. Brooks has all the tools....well except for a brain..and that's pretty important...but he's in Oakland so he fits right in.

The thing I don't like about having to face him 2x a year is he is very mobile. He can beat you with his legs. Where Kerry Collins can't.

He is a slight upgrade over Collins imo. They still share the same problem however, and that is, making bad decisions with the football. Brooks will do that. He has a tendency to hold onto the football too long, making costly mistakes in critical situations.

This could actually work out well for them, as he has a great physical skillset. Of course, I then have to think of the times he's passed the ball backwards or numerous other Plummer-esque bumblings.

So free agency is going to be good to the Chiefs after all...

It was a two year contract. Art stated that he was brought in as depth,
and was not promised the starting job. That said, he will compete with Walter in camp and there is a good chance he will win the job.

As far as the Raiders drafting a QB, nothins has changed..Al is in love with Young, and dont be suprised if we trade up to get him...

Why trade up when nobody else above you will draft him?

Thats what I'm saying too..
but alot of mocks have him going in the top 4...The rumor is, We have Offered the Saints our #1 and 2 and Cooper to move up to the 2 slot....But who knows, then we might take Lienart, or Bush .. I pray it doesn't happen.....

Maybe a change of scenery (which stadium do we play in again this week) for Brooks will be good,
but the Faiders......

Mobile but tends to make alot of mistakes
