Per Rotoworld:

The Jaguars have reportedly expressed interest in Chiefs backup QB Tyler Thigpen.

The sides can't find common ground on Thigpen's value with the Chiefs asking for more than a fifth-round pick. The Jags do need a No. 2, but Kansas City can forget about getting a higher pick for a quarterback who can only function out of the shotgun.

If anyone is offering a fifth, you take that pick and laugh your ass off to the next draft.

No one in their right mind is going to give you a 4th for him.

If we intend to use a wildcat at all, I'd rather have Thigpen than the 5th.

It's a value thing - Thigpen is a very valuable asset as a wildcat QB. If you're going to use the formation, Thigpen is a guy that will help your team immensly several times throughout the course of the season. The 5th is unlikely to amount to much.

If we aren't going to use the wildcat at all, go ahead and deal him.

Thigpen has the lowest completion % and something like 2.9 ypc. He remains inaccurate. You need a QB that can throw the ball down field.

Speaking of Chiefs QB's (or former QB's):
"Free agent QB Ingle Martin is expected to sign with the Broncos Wednesday if he passes a physical.
Martin, a floating fourth quarterback for the past couple of seasons, would just be around for depth. Chris Simms' ankle injury will likely keep him out for a couple of weeks."

behind this shitty OLine, and with broken brodie as the #2, we had better be ready to use our third QB. I'd rather its Thigpen than Gutierrez.

Was anyone else reminded of the Trent Green decapitation game seeing Cassel run all over the field Friday night?

Add that to the different dimension Thigpen gives, and his possible use in the wildcat.

But I still would take a 5th for him. This isn’t Carl drafting anymore, so picks are valuable again.

We used the wildcat because the "QB" that we had last year could not run a conventional offense so Chan was trying anything he could to get things done offensively. Now that we have a real QB starting and a couple fairly capable backups, Thigpen is not needed. Get what you can and move on.

Martin is a great game manager and knows to throw the left handed interception instead of taking a sack. We're going to the Super Bowl!

I'm not a big Thigpen fan, except for his excellent scrambling ablility, but he did seem to find his way to the end zone on more posessions than Croyle. Croyle's posessions seemed to end with a FG or turnover. Anyone have the stats on this?

It is funny to see guys bash Thigpen....a seventh round pick that the Chiefs picked up off the waiver wire.... that delivered last year.

Is he Peyton Manning? Of course not. Peyton Manning doesn't make it to the waiver wire.

He way overproduced anything the Chiefs could have hoped for. He had very little experience and gave the Chiefs a chance to win on a weekly basis.

I was never hanging the banner than he should be the Chiefs QBOTF, but the kid has NFL talent.

EVERY player is a system player to some degree. The fact that Thigpen operates out best out of the shotgun is just his specific set of tools.

Every player has them. Now, some players have all the tools, but most of the time... especially for SEVENTH round picks who are WAIVED.... you have tradeoffs.

Yes, the Chiefs can get a decent pick for him. A fifth would be appropriate.

I am a little suprised that they are letting him go, because I would much rather see him than Matt G-rez (don't know how to spell his name).

I would be fine with it in the long run.... but Thigpen accomplished nearly the same things that Orton did last year. Thigpen was a second year player with his first real playing time. Orton was in his fourth year.

In fact, if you compared Thigpens numbers to a ton of guys in the NFL in their first year of starting, his numbers would compare 'favorably'.

He is on the short side, he isn't the most accurate, and I think both Croyle and Cassel have far more ability.

That said, he has moxie. He has toughness and he has persistence.

I like guys who overachieve from what was expected.

To me, a guy like DJ should be bashed because he has never played to the level that Thigpen played last year.... and he was a first round pick.

I agree, he made the best out of good situation with a bad team with a horrible offensive line. Like I said above, at least he found the end zone, something I haven't seen Brokie do much. You can't help your team when you are on IR all the time. What good is he?

Thigpen was a waiver wire acqusition that grew into a capable starting QB. Never going to be a Pro Bowler, but a guy that could win a couple of games.

Not saying the Chiefs shouldn't trade him, but bashing this kid just shows how stupid fans are in general.

The same guys calling him a scrub couldn't carry his jock.

I have a lot of respect for these guys because I know I wasn't good enough to make it to the pros.

I respect the ability of people that can do things that I can't.

The worst player on any NFL roster right now, even before cuts, would school any poster on this board.... that is calling that same player a 'scrub'.

Just like any nfl coach on any staff would school any poster on this board about the philosophy of the game.

If Thigpen were a high round pick, I would understand being annoyed because he wouldn't be living up to expectations, and he would have 'hurt' the team.

He has done nothing to hurt this team, and his trade value is such that it could help in the long run.

EVERY player is a system player to some degree. The fact that Thigpen operates out best out of the shotgun is just his specific set of tools.

Every player has them. Now, some players have all the tools, but most of the time... especially for SEVENTH round picks who are WAIVED.... you have tradeoffs.

Yes, the Chiefs can get a decent pick for him. A fifth would be appropriate.

I am a little suprised that they are letting him go, because I would much rather see him than Matt G-rez (don't know how to spell his name).

I would be fine with it in the long run.... but Thigpen accomplished nearly the same things that Orton did last year. Thigpen was a second year player with his first real playing time. Orton was in his fourth year.

In fact, if you compared Thigpens numbers to a ton of guys in the NFL in their first year of starting, his numbers would compare 'favorably'.

He is on the short side, he isn't the most accurate, and I think both Croyle and Cassel have far more ability.

That said, he has moxie. He has toughness and he has persistence.

I like guys who overachieve from what was expected.

To me, a guy like DJ should be bashed because he has never played to the level that Thigpen played last year.... and he was a first round pick.

So how is this going to change your view on Pioli and Haley if they release a players of Thigpens magnitude?

Will you scorn them, praise them?

Thoughts?

The funny thing is... Many of the same people who bash Thigpen were perfectly ready to hand the keys over to a much less accomplished Brodie Croyle.

Now, to be 100% fair.... Brodie Croyle is the most talented QB on the Chiefs roster right now... he just can't stay healthy.

If he could have stayed healthy in college, he would have been a first round pick.

He has everything you look for in a QB.... other than durability.

Thigpen has accomplished more, but that is more because Croyle hasn't been able to stay on the field.

Look, there is a difference between accepting that Thigpen may not be the best fit, and bashing a kid who outproduced anything that anyone could have expected from him.

I am not saying that I want him to be the QBOTF. I won't go so far as to say he could never be successful, because I am sure that many fans of the Pats said that Rich Gannon could never be a successful NFL QB.

A third string QB isn't the kind of move that will get me that upset.

And, as I said, if they are able to trade him... then I can support that 100%. The draft pick would be more valuable to this club than Thigpen would be.

Yeah, I will be dissapointed if they just release him. Not to the point that I will 'bash' their decision. If my biggest dissagreement with this organization comes from the decision over the third string QB.... I think I will be pretty happy with them.

I have a feeling that I will have some protests on cut day.....regardless.

People bash him because while Herm Edwards had no choice and gave him a dumbed down college offense to work with so he could be more productive, it's a good bet that Todd Haley will NOT be doing that. So Thigpen's value to us as a backup is nil.

They also bash him because of retarded posts like the ones you make. Sensible my ass.

I never said he should be competing for the starting job, dipshit. I said that if he is cut, there will be teams with shaky QB situations that might be interested in having a look. The fact that the Jags are looking for a trade pretty much justifies that. I've said from the beginning that I support keeping him on the bench in KC and developing him--if he sucks after you try to groom him, cut him. If he does real well, you have either a real good backup or trade bait.

But go ahead with your dumbass idea that he doesn't belong on any NFL roster. Because that's not a clear example of extremism.

The pistol is basically a spread offense with a RB lined up in the i-formation.

The Patriots don't run a pure spread offense. But the premise is generally the same--QB lines up in the shotgun, spread 3 or 4 WRs out wide. Same with the Steelers.

Now all of a sudden, over the last week, fans are treating him like some kind of a golden boy and are now even throwing conspiracy theories about how his injuries are just bad luck. And a lot of the same people who were hyping up Thigpen as the next golden boy 6 months ago are the same ones who are acting like he's a no-name reject.

I'll never understand why a lot of Chiefs' fans are so obsessed with despising certain players. I don't love him or hate him. I just think he's a much better option than Guttierez and a very important option if fragile Croyle is the backup.

Thigpen is rawer than Guttierrez, but Guttierez doesn't have any upside. I don't think he's even good enough to be a backup QB. If Pioli can get a 4th or above, I'd be fine with the Chiefs dealing him.

We didn't go into a shell. Check the gamelogs, and quit making excuses.

The gameplans sucked in the second halves. They may not have run the ball, but the passing game went from vertical to dink and dunk screen passes. And the fact that they refused to run the ball made their offense extremely predictable.

So the answer to that is really easy. Uhh... how about you coach him? Haley talked about how he's learning to play under center and he's working on his fundamentals. If the kid can keep games close without any accuracy behind a horrendous offensive line with negative support from a defense, it's worth at least looking into what happens if he can learn proper mechanics. He's not the first or last QB to struggle with accuracy early in his NFL career.

Why are you convinced that "conservative" means "run-happy"?

When the Chiefs threw, they stopped running intermediate-to-deep routes and threw mostly 5-yard hitch routes to Bowe or Bradley. I can't remember a single trick play run in the second half of games. And when the game mattered most, they usually opted to run the ball to milk the clock in the late 4th quarter.

And by the way, when you pass all the time, the defense knows what's coming. Classic Mike Martz.

But as for offensive performance, again, Thigpen's offense far exceeded the performance of the prior two. Pretty clear as day. And that includes Croyle's healthy starts in 2008.

Wrong. 33 points was the season high with Damon Huard as the Qb.

And?

Shaun Hill was a 3rd stringer behind Alex Smith and JT O'Sullivan, and stepped in quite nicely in SF.

62% completion, over 2,000 yards, and a 88 Rating in 9 starts.

Matt Cassel hadn't stepped on the field since HS, yet was successful in NE.

Being his first starts doesn't automatically resign him to failure.

His lack of talent does.

shaun hill has a pretty good rb by the name of frank gore. maybe youve heard of him. they also had a much better defense than us to back him up. dont get me started on cassels talent around him, and the fact that he has had 3 years to learn from arguably the best head coach and qbs who ever lived.

Croyle didn't even play an entire half. How can you possibly compare his level of play to Pistol boy?

And Huard quit like a little bitch. One QB tried, and one didn't. Of course the former was better.

Seriously, we didn't move to the pistol to protect Thigpen; we did it to hide him and mask all of his flaws. And, apparently, it was pretty successful.
