Brady Quinn is not a good Quarterback. This trade just further reinforces my view that this organization has no idea what the fuck they're doing after they lost Shanahan.

Depends on the draft picks. It's been obvious for awhile that McDaniels really wanted Quinn. The Browns were the ones that pulled out of the Cutler sweepstakes, which is what sent JC to Chicago. It also came out during the season that Denver tried to trade for him again at the draft last year.

But fuck, if McDaniels gave up a lot for that crotch grabber . . .

Bullshit.

Is that why Chad Jackson was cut after only 2 seasons after trading up to get him?
Is that why Cassel's contract is basically a 2-year contract with an out clause in his third season?
And I hardly see how signing Vrabel to a 1-year contract is admitting Pioli made a mistake

I know, I know. I'm a Pioli dick-sucker, apparently. I just don't understand these baseless accusations that Pioli doesn't listen to his coaches and is too much of a hothead to admit he was wrong. I can't think of a single transaction in New England where this was the case. Can you?

Players they don't admit they were wrong on...Laurence Maroney is STILL there.

Using a 2nd round pick like Chad Jackson as an example is kinda weak, he got hurt and all that jazz. Cassel is Pioli's first move as a new GM, I have a hard time seeing him just readily admitting he fucked up.

Up to this point, he's proven to be dumb as **** for a number of reasons.

But, yeah, I'd rather have one of "Weis's guys" for next to nothing than Cassel for the third richest contract in the league.

How about because the guy talked about how he loved the preseason cut time and we put in 1 claim...for a guy from NE. How about because all we could do was sign or trade for trash from the tree?

How about the freezing out the past scouts story? How about drafting defensive players in a draft that was offensively strong because the 3-4 had to be shoehorned in?

Of course I don't like that decision. But I fail to see how this has anything to do with ego. Nothing this offseason has led me to believe that he is only interested in bringing ex-Patriots. We passed on Jarvis Green and Ben Watson, and didn't even try to make a play for Bodden.

How about the freezing out the past scouts story? How about drafting defensive players in a draft that was offensively strong because the 3-4 had to be shoehorned in?
I've never defended either of these two decisions. But that doesn't discount his history that he trusts his group of advisors. Now that he has his own scouts and coaches in place, I don't see any reason why he wouldn't listen to him.

How about that Mike Vrabel ****ing got resigned when he sucks complete donkey dick.
Your basis for this argument is really going to be around a veteran player signed to a 1-year contract that costs nothing against the cap?

Trading for Cassel was probably a big mistake. And it was probably a mistake of loyalty. But given the structure of his contract, I don't see any reason why you or anyone thinks that anyone in this organization is married to Cassel being a franchise QB.

Denver got BQ for pretty cheap. The challenge for trading Quinn (for Cleveland) was that the acquiring team would have to assume the large contract. So, Denver assumes a large contract for Quinn, which uses up $$$ that Bowlen could redeploy elsewhere.

McDaniels thinks, apparently, he's a God at coaching QBs, so let's see what happens. If he brings BQ around to be a starter, they stole him. If not, they have more dead weight on their roster and a QB controversy to destabilize Orton, which would be fine for us.

That's a bad argument, trading for Cassel prevented them from making a play on a QB in back to back years with a top 5 pick, there's more there than just "Oh well we can move on"

What large contract?

They were just saying on Sirius NFL Radio this afternoon that Quinn's base salary is 700K in each of the next two seasons.

He only gets paid more if he hits certain performance clauses - and even then, it maxes out at $5M per.

You're moving the goal posts.

Right now, I don't deny that Cassel was a mistake. I'm just calling you out for claiming that he's so egotistical that he won't admit a mistake when his coaches clearly want something else.

If Charlie Weis really wants Clausen, given Pioli's history in working with Belichick, he will probably get him. I'm not worried about Pioli's pride. I'm more worried about Pioli overlistening to his coach and not his scouts (assuming that the scouts believe that Clausen isn't a good pick... "assuming... hypothetically")

If it's a scenario like the one posted in the other thread--where we're getting a 2011 first rounder from a team likely to be in the top 10--I'd be fine with that.

I don't see any of those 20's teams coming up, the draft is deep and no one really wants to pay these top 5 contracts on top of the picks you have to give up.

What team did someone mention giving up next years 1st?

The bad scenario is if the Chiefs moved down with Cleveland, Cleveland would probably take Clausen, Seattle would take Berry and we'd then watch the Chiefs draft Bulaga.

I don't see any of those 20's teams coming up, the draft is deep and no one really wants to pay these top 5 contracts on top of the picks you have to give up.

What team did someone mention giving up next years 1st?

The bad scenario is if the Chiefs moved down with Cleveland, Cleveland would probably take Clausen, Seattle would take Berry and we'd then watch the Chiefs draft Bulaga.

I do think this is a possibility now. I think Cleveland might be looking for Clausen (though being burnt once by a ND phenom may be enough) and offer to trade up to our #5 if Washington does not take him. Or they may trade up with the Redskins.

If they offered Pioli their #7 and a second rounder, he may bite, then we lose Clausen and Berry to Seattle potentially, and we are left with no recourse but take OL. Of course, if he was planning to go OL anyway, then it would be a deal to jump on.

The thing is I don't think the Redskins will go Clausen, I think they'd take Bradford...if it plays weird and McCoy or Suh end up there the Redskins probably take them they get one of the best 2 players in the draft at 4.

Saying he is "crushing the franchise" is crazy. Im all for drafting clausen, but jesus christ, everyone here acts like the are nostradamus and can tell the future.

Matt played TERRIBLE last season, but so did trent his 1st year here. I think charlie can make him a good qb. Oh, and it also doesnt help to have a revolving door at reciever.

No. No, he didn't. He was a fucking joke from start to finish.

His single best pass was the long strike at the start of the Denver game. Great pass. But the fact that it seemed like a remarkable fucking moment should speak volumes about the rest of his season.

As much as I hate the Donks, I wouldn't be surprised to see BQ blossom into a good QB over the next few years. Getting out of that clusterf*ck in Cleveland can only be a good thing for him. [That said, McFister doesn't have a very good track record with NFL QBs so far.]

Very funny about Brady Quinn trade to Denver. Was talking last night w/ someone who suggested C. Weis would love to have BQ in KC.

Damn.

Quinn going for that little really does make it seem like we're going to go down swinging with Cassel.

Quinn may not amount to much, but a couple of 6th round picks for the guy is nothing. If Weis really has much say in our QB position, I'd have to believe we'd have trumped that deal. At the very least I figure we would've bid harder in an attempt to drive the price up (knowing that if the Donx call our bluff, we at least have a QB the OC likes).

Yup, looks like we're rolling with Cassel. That or the FO has a major hard-on for Clausen and didn't want to create a QB controversy here.

I'm going to guess the former, seeing as how I'm pretty sure Pioli is a !@#$tard.

Crap.

3rd and long pass at the end of the game to long i believe in the steeler game?
Td to bowe vs dallas at the end of the game?

Look, im not saying i want cassel starting next season, but to say the guy has no talent is wrong. He just doesnt show it consistently enough. If i had my way, id want brodie or claussen starting.

I love all the fake indignation regarding Cassel, as though there was ever any indication that this organization had any intention of moving him, or even not playing him. From the moment we obtained Cassel in the trade, he has been the man at arrowhead, for better or worse. This FO thinks he is the answer at that position, end of discussion. Now is that the right call? I dunno. I do know that Brady Quinn is a joke.... I'd rather have Croyle.

It's more like the Chiefs will go with Cassel and Croyle at QB next season, and will draft a need at #5 instead of Jimmy "my own fans punch me in the face" Clausen.

I think this probably says more about how they feel about Croyle rather than saying anything about Cassel. Obviously at that price if the Chiefs wanted Quinn, they could have gotten him. If Pioli, Weis and Haley didn't think the guy was much of an upgrade over Croyle, then that explains why a deal was not made...

Interesting to note that the team that made this trade apparently was willing to trade Cutler for Quinn, ended up trading Cutler for Orton, and hade a first choice of Matt Cassel.

Cassel did not impress last year. He stuggled at the worst times, and an argument could have been made that Croyle would have been an instant upgrade at QB. That being said, I am looking forward to what Charlie Weis can do with a full offseason of preparation with Cassel, and how Cassel responds through the season with a dedicated offensive coordinator.

You don't have to like it, just accept it - Matt Cassel will be the starter for the Chiefs in 2010. And if he plays well, for many years afterwards.


I am also of the belief that we are not going to even sniff Clausen or Bradford (if either are there) with our 5 pick.

A roster player who had a real chance of getting cut in TC, a 6th next year, and a pick in '12 that can't be any higher than a mid-round pick. Maybe Quinn will never become anything, but it's not like there's a real downside to this trade for Denver, the potential upside is huge.

Here's the problem:

Cassel wasn't just a mistake, he was a franchise-crushing mistake.

There is a difference between making a mistake on a Chad Jackson type deal and a Matt Cassel type deal, especially given the players you passed up to get Cassel.

Right now, yes, I think it was a big mistake to trade for him (I'm still not a big fan of Sanchez, so I don't necessarily agree that we passed up on any marquee quarterbacks).

But that's not what mecca is arguing about. He's claiming that Pioli has too much of an ego to admit he was wrong about Cassel. And I'm calling bullshit, given that Cassel's contract has a 2-year out clause. Why would you do that if you were that convinced he was your long-term option at QB?

Even if he's not, it's a decision like that makes or breaks a team, it caused us to take Jackson 1st and not have a 2nd rounder in a deep class and now once again we won't be taking a QB.

I agree that we need to bring in a QB. And I"m hoping it's Clausen.

But the draft hasn't happened yet. And you're basically suggesting as a matter of fact that the Chiefs absolutely, positively won't take Clausen because Pioli is protecting his investment.

And I don't get where that's coming from. Like I said, given Pioli's history of trusting Belichick absolutely, I'm more worried about him overtrusting Weis' advice than undertrusting it. If he chooses Clausen, it had better be for the right reasons.

Sorry, I'm not convinced at all that clausen is completely out of the picture.

And a dude with such sterling judgment that it led to him killing a man and being unemployed (despite being more talented than 3/4 of the WRs out there).

Croyle might be considered worthwhile if he didn't tear his labia every time the wind came from the East.

No. If the Chiefs would have given up the exact same compensation for Quinn, I'd probably blow a wad in my pants. I'm not saying the guy is going to light the world on fire; but he's worth what they gave up.

IMO, you're making too much out of Vrabel resigning. I'm thinking Vrabel was resigned because they like his veteran leadership. I agree that an upgrade is in order but he's not completely worthless. You act like Pioli has signed him to a six year deal with a huge bonus. Geez, he's only a stop gap who can help teach the young ones.

Yes he is.

In fact, Cassel could possibly fetch us a 6th round pick in this year's draft.

Vrabel, on the other hand, couldn't be traded for a practice tee.

He is the very definition of completely worthless. Walking into an AIDS tree wouldn't do us any good because he couldn't move fast enough to actually get any AIDS on him. No, we need the AIDS tree to be somehow knocked over only to land on Mike Vrabel.

His presence on the roster is a bigger sham than Cassel's.

And Cassel's a piece of shit.

What does that say about Quinn if Charlie Weiss would rather have Cassel and Croyle? What does it say about Quinn that Cleveland doesn't even have a starting quarterback but one of the first things Holmgren does is give away a still young first round quarterback for peanuts?

Clark Judge chimes in

The Brady Quinn deal should have caught nobody by surprise, especially Brady Quinn. The minute Cleveland signed Jake Delhomme, Quinn was finished with the Browns.

So Cleveland deals him to Denver where the Broncos probably discover what Cleveland did -- that Quinn is not a very accurate quarterback. Nevertheless, coach Josh McDaniels prides himself on working with quarterbacks, and if he can find something here that Cleveland did not then maybe, just maybe, Quinn has a chance. It's a long shot, but it shows that Denver is eager to find a young arm to challenge Kyle Orton. Plus, it didn't cost the Broncos much.

McDaniels is close to former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis, and Weis loves Quinn. In all likelihood he sold his former pupil (the two were together at New England) on Quinn's smarts, telling him that he could be the perfect guy to run the Denver offense. If nothing else, he sold him on it being a risk worth taking because, given what you could find, the risk wasn't much.

All I know is that for Cleveland to give up on the guy speaks volumes. Because he was from Ohio, he was popular with Browns' fans who desperately wanted him to succeed. Then there's team president Mike Holmgren, who has a history of developing young quarterbacks -- which should've boded well for Quinn. Plus there was an opening, with Seneca Wallace the only challenger before Delhomme arrived on the scene.

I see where Wallace said he intends to be the starter, and that's great. Only if you've seen Seneca Wallace play quarterback he should never be the starter for anyone. No disrespect to Wallace, but as a quarterback he makes a better running back. Anyway, with all that on Quinn's side, he still couldn't make, and good luck in Denver. Maybe a change of scenery works in his favor ... but I doubt it.

Listen, Cleveland needs a good young quarterback, but the Browns bailed on Quinn after only three seasons. I know this regime didn't draft him, but Holmgren isn't going to jettison young talent. He discarded Quinn, and he did it relatively quickly -- for a 35-year-old who was cut by Carolina and who has 9 touchdown passes and 23 interceptions over his last 12 starts. That tells me all I need to know about Quinn's future.

Jake Delhomme.

That doesn't help Quinn's case. Quinn's ticket out of Cleveland was punched before Delhomme was even signed. Plus, it's not like Delhomme is gauranteed to succeed. You'd think that Delhomme's age and his rapidly deteriorating play would be enough to want to hang on to a 25 year old first round quarterback. Holmgren couldn't get Wallace and Delnomme into Cleveland fast enough. Seems like Homgren's attitude was, "anybody but Brady."

When Dwayne Bowe shows me consistency like Kennison from 2002-2006, you let me know.

Eddie Kennison was a pretty underrated player on the Chiefs if you ask me...2002-2005 Eddie Kennison would have been a quality #2 WR for just about any NFL team...

The fact Green had Kennison, Morton and Gonzalez pretty much makes it impossible for anyone to try and say Cassel had more receiving weapons than Green did...

ALSO...

Bobby Wade is awful...he doesn't even belong in any of this discussion...

The problem is that your "feeling" is based on hope and not facts.

Regardless of what you or I think of the surrounding weapons and offensive line, I'm pretty sure that 2001 Trent Green would have been far more accurate and a much better leader than 2009 Matt Cassel.

And then you add in Tony Gonzalez...

You're certainly entitled to your opinion but we all saw Trent Green play well in Washington, in St. Louis in 2000 and when healthy, well in KC from 2001-2005.

Trent Green exuded confidence. He put balls in tight places. He show leadership, arm strength and character. He knew the offense inside and out. He'd have a bad game, blame himself and bounce back with a good game.

Cassel knows this offense. He's been in it for 5 years. He's weak armed, makes decisions slowly, doesn't take chances with his throws and holds onto the ball far too long. He's not a guy willing to put team on his shoulders week in and week out and WIN.

Personally, I wish the Chiefs had drafted Brees in 2001 over trading for Green. And while I think that Green was the ultimate system QB, he was smart, sharp, confident and for lack of a better word, a winner.

You just can't ignore that.

Well, I guess this puts that Cassel for Quinn rumor to rest.

What makes you think that?

Well, I wouldn't give up on Bowe just yet. He's shown flashes of being a No 1.
I think Chambers was a 1b/2 and is now a solid 2.

He doesn't have the track speed nor the game speed to be a true #1. Now, that doesn't mean he can't or wont have 90 catches a year, just that he's not a game-breaking, game winning WR.

I think last year's an aberration. If not, then he'll quickly be branded a DJ.

You're certainly entitled to your opinion but we all saw Trent Green play well in Washington, in St. Louis in 2000 and when healthy, well in KC from 2001-2005.

Trent Green exuded confidence. He put balls in tight places. He show leadership, arm strength and character. He knew the offense inside and out. He'd have a bad game, blame himself and bounce back with a good game.

Cassel knows this offense. He's been in it for 5 years. He's weak armed, makes decisions slowly, doesn't take chances with his throws and holds onto the ball far too long. He's not a guy willing to put team on his shoulders week in and week out and WIN.

Personally, I wish the Chiefs had drafted Brees in 2001 over trading for Green. And while I think that Green was the ultimate system QB, he was smart, sharp, confident and for lack of a better word, a winner.

I just don't see those qualities at this point in time in Cassel.

I just don't see that fire.

im talking more about the teams changing offenses their respective first years, both teams' best rbs called third down backs to start the seasons, pulling a wr off the shit pile and said wr becoming a solid contributor...... the parallels in each qbs situations cant be denied. NOW if we can solidify that line though the later rounds and casey??? maybe we can find out what we actually have in cassel, a prime rib dinner or a shit sandwich.

I liked Green, and respected his toughness, and the way he handled himself through adversity.

One thing, however, that bothered about Green was his propensity for mistakes in the red zone, or in clutch situations.

Green played great for 5 years here, but if a game was on the line, he was not a QB I wanted to have to rely on.

Agreed, but prepare to get flamed.

I wonder what QB people were watching when they say we would have won a SB had we had a defense.

I'm sorry, but TG - while he put up some arena league numbers - isn't anywhere near my list of QB's I'd pick to win a game if my life depended on it.

Well he didn't play bad at all in the 2003 game vs the Colts. The Chiefs didn't lost much at home in big games either.

You can put me in the camp that we would have won the SB with a defense that year.

Trent Green didn't have to be spectacular. The Chiefs running game was one of the best orchestrated ground attacks I've ever seen.

Green had several clutch games that year and played by far his best football.

He played a great game against a defense that was nearly as bad as ours.

The thing is that Trent Green was a proven QB in the NFL before coming to KC. He started in Washington, started in St. Louis and was a well known, hard working QB that would have most certainly won a Super Bowl as the Rams starter in '99 where he was already installed as the starter.

Cassel hadn't started since high school. He was a 7th rounder that was in danger of being cut each and every year. He was sacked 47 times in NE and was helped greatly by McDaniels, Belichick, Moss and Welker.

If you strip those guys away, you have a QB that puts up a 14 QB rating.

As mentioned earlier, Trent Green may have had a bad week but the following week, he was ready to rock. And like most QB's, his success relied upon good protection and good skill players.

But the similarities end there because Cassel isn't accurate, doesn't read defenses well, holds onto the ball way too long and doesn't make good decisions on a regular basis.

All I'm saying is that he did have a proensity, in general to make huge mistakes.

Now did he, at times, make some big plays?

Sure.

But the fact remains, he made a number of bad plays and threw some big interceptions in his 5 years, and I just didn't have faith in him in those situations.

i can agree that we would have had a great shot that year. but green did throw quite a few ints in clutch situations that could have put some games away. then the d stepped on the field.....

It's obvious Bowe's head's not in it.
Chambers is a gamer, though.
Besides, Miles Austin looked like a POS for the first few games and now he's a freakin superstar. You never know when these guy's will pull their heads out of their asses.

I agree completely and have been killed on this forum for saying as much.

But with that being said, Cassel isn't anywhere near the same QB as Green.

It's like high school versus the NFL.

The only game I remember him fucking up was the 2004 game vs Houston. Other than that I can't think of any times he made stupid mitakes in the red zone can you remind me?

Miles Austin was an undrafted DII player, not a first rounder from LSU.

HUGE difference.

Off the top of my head, I can't think of a DI player whose pulled his head out of his ass but I'm sure it's happened plenty of times. As a rule, WRs are head cases.
