I really hate pimping my own crap, but until I'm as sought after as some of the Star writers, I guess I'm stuck doing so. I have a feeling it will be a very long wait for me. Anyway, here's my crap. Hopefully you like it. If you don't, please don't hurt my feelings. I'm feeling very vulnerable right now.

I think some get iron-on tattoos, so as not to be grossed out.

Two words i would use are concise and well formatted. If "DownFieldDamon" does go on a tear when is the point of no return? I'm thinking it would be pretty late, i have to think Trent could step back in with guys he knows this well and be the vet who wont get fooled by late season heat and skullguggery, i bet Trent will chomp at the bit to get in when he's ready. Maximus must get to his troops outside of Rome and squash the revolt before it gets outta hand.

Thanks. I know I'm not a great writer so I use those two weapons to keep the read enjoyable. I can't stand reading wordy crap that is 5000 words long. There's no sense in it.

Not bad. I disagree about Leaf though, he was a total jackass in college, the NFL and since. I had the pleasure of seeing him kicked off the golf course ahead of me for bieng a jackass and not finding enough people willing to put up with it. His problem was lack of character.

I'm essentially an amateur and this is roughly my 10th article - I think some trepidation is probably natural. Combined with that, I'm bit of an egomaniac. A little humility won't hurt me.

Having GoChiefs edit it probably whittled that down a bit, eh?

I agree there are a ton of other factors that contributed to his demise, mostly due to poor character. But I don't think his skills can be denied. He was supposedly the prototypical pro QB. Too bad he was a frickin headcase.

How many times has a former wash-out starter sit on the bench for a couple years, get a fresh chance to start and turn out to be a much better QB than people first thought. Not a superstar, but a servicable starter.

Plunkett and Testeverde are a couple that come to mind. But there are others.

Some guys get better, even sitting on the bench.

So true, history is littered with them.

Didn't ?Livingston? play most of the season for Dawson during the Super Bowl run?

After looking it up, I find that my memory has failed me.

Dawson missed 9 games.

...I know from many years of watching football that a quarterback who has a tendency to make poor decisions doesn't last very long.

Unless his last name is Plummer. :D

In that case, it sucked ass, how the hell can you live with yourself??

:D

Seriously, I disagree on the quarterback controversy. There will not be one. Trent is tested, he is on the sidelines and active, and probably had a lot do to with the success Damon had last weekend...at home...in a friendly environment. I'm not totally sold on Damon at all, though I'm way happier with him than I thought I would be. But when Trent comes back, I don't think anyone will argue...least of all Damon.

I want success for Huard while he's leading the Chiefs UNTIL Green's return.

Anyone who thinks there is ANY chance at a QB controversy has been eating some toxic Urinal mints.

I agree that there is a point of no return in a season. The big question would be "when is the point of no return?" Perhaps if we get to December and Trent isn't back yet and Huard has been playing well then we should just stick with Damon Huard.

If Huard starts more than 10 games this year, I think I'd let him finish it out.

Nice work Phobia...thanks for sharing.

These 2 lines were my favorites:

Instead, the Chiefs traded up into the Cowboys slot and selected Ryan Sims, who hasn't been a badge of honor for Kansas City’s scouting department. Nobody is listing that selection on their resume.

Great article. I would disagree in one area. I think Trent will continue to be a leader on this team even when he's not playing. Huard needs to lead on the field while he's playing, but don't think for a minute that Huard isn't being managed by Trent Green as well. Huard is proving to be a great back-up, but Trent is still the boss. When Trent is ready to go, he needs to be back on the field taking back his on field leadership position.
