And yet we have only one playoff victory since the Blackledge episode using retread rehash QBs. Watching other (manny) teams make that dareing pick and find themselves winning a bunch of games and become Super Bowl continders with in a few years.

*14 if you want to include brees.


This thread is based on the premise of a BS fact. If Brady and Hasselbeck make the playoffs will you start a thread about how both the SB qbs were 1st rounders?

Shit I'm for drafting a qb early, but this thread is just BS.

The more interesting thing to me is where in the first round those QBs were taken:

Ryan 3
Sanchez 5
Cutler 11
Roethlisberger 11
Flacco 18
Rogers 24

So only two were taken in the top 10. Ryan warranted his pick. I'm one of those who believes Sanchez was taken far higher than he should have been, but people will argue that. Cutler should I think get an asterick, since he isn't playing for the team that drafted him. Flacco and Roethlisberger were small school guys. Rodgers was and will always be kind of a head-scratcher, as far as his draft-day fall goes.

Who's the best of that bunch? Has to be Roethlisberger, the guy with the rings. Ryan would I think come after him, although Atlanta is still a run-first team. Then probably Rodgers and Flacco. Cutler is to me a flake. I expected bigger things out of him, and you never know whether he's going to come out and have a 4 TD day or a 4 pick day. And then there was Sanchez. Maybe the Jets can continue to win despite him.

The thing that's really lost is how good these guys' teams are. They all have strong defenses. Most of them are asked more to manage their offenses, with the exception of Roethlisberger, who's basically been the Steelers offense since about 2007. Tom Brady would fall into that category, too. Those two guys are I think far more important to their teams than any of the other QBs currently in the playoffs. The rest of them are closer to what Cassel was asked to be during the year - make your plays but don't screw up. The difference, of course, being that some of them have shown that they can not only let themselves be carried, but also come through and make that big play when the team needs it.

I'm one of those guys that believes it doesn't really matter where you get your quarterback. Sure, a Peyton Manning would be nice, but you have to be in a position to land one. And unfortunately, for all the QBs I've wanted the Chiefs to take in the last decade, they haven't been. Ryan was the most recent guy I was big on that I thought we'd have a shot at. I thought we'd be in a position for one in 2011, but it doesn't look like it now, the way that the NCAA season played-out, paired with the 'hopeful' performance they got out of Cassel. That was basically my worst-case scenario for him and for the Chiefs: he showed just enough flashes to give some hope for the future, but in the end left way too many questions.

Here:

Treatise from the ďGang of 14Ē:

I see a lot of dissent from the True Fans on the board that those of us who continually express the primacy of a franchise quarterback are not adding any kind of insight or support to our opinions, merely insults. In the interests of refutation, I am going to skip any form of attack in this post in order to demonstrate to you what our argument is, and the history that we have on the board of supporting said argument with pointed, and factual examples.

Why do we believe in obtaining a franchise QB?

Itís quite simple. It is the most important piece of a team that will successfully contend for a number of years. Look back on the last several dynasties or near-dynasties in the NFL.

The Steelers of the 70ís had Bradshaw
The 49ers of the 80ís and 90ís had Montanal who then bridged seamlessly to Steve Young
The Cowboys of the 90ís had Troy Aikman
The Bills of the 90ís had Jim Kelly
The Broncos of the 80ís and 90ís had John Elway
The Patriots of this decade have Tom Brady
The Colts of this decade have Peyton Manning
The Steelers of this decade have Ben Roethlisberger

8 teams, all of them had franchise QBs. Most of them also had good to great defenses, but none of them didnít have a franchise quarterback.

Here is why we donít believe in defense above all else:

The 1980s Chicago Bears
The late 80ís-early 90ís Philadelphia Eagles
The Bucs of the 1990s and 2000s
The Ravens of this decade.

Many people consider the 1985 Bears to be the greatest team of all time, with the greatest defense of all time. What people forget is that the 1986 Bears had a better defense, setting NFL records for fewest points allowed. What they didnít have was the same level of consistent play from the quarterback position as these other teams did. In spite of one of the most impressively talented units of all time on either side of the ball, they were essentially a one-hit wonder.

The Philadelphia Eagles of the Buddy Ryan era had some of the most dominant defenders of any era. Guys like Reggie White, Jerome Brown (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerome_Brown), Clyde Simmons (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clyde_Simmons), Seth Joyner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seth_Joyner), Eric Allen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Allen), Wes Hopkins (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wes_Hopkins), and Andre Waters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andre_Waters). They led the NFL in both passing and rushing yardage allowed in 1991, the first team to do that in 16 years, and they missed the playoffs. In fact, that team did not win a single playoff game.

The Bucs of the last 10 years are another great example. Although they had an amazingly talented unit, Warren Sapp, Simeon Rice (120 sacks), Ronde Barber, Derrick Brooks, Booger McFarland, and John Lynch (among others), they routinely flamed out in the playoffs. They eventually won one Super Bowl, but with that kind of talent on one unit, itís positively criminal that they werenít in the Ch. Game or Super Bowl every year.

The 2000 Ravens had arguably the greatest or second greatest D of all time, but with only Trent Dilfer at the helm, and no other offensive weapons aside from Jamal Lewis, they flamed out quicker than Colin Farrell.

Now, with that being said, why do we want a franchise QB this year?
It comes down to this: we see Matt Stafford and Mark Sanchez as two of the best quarterback prospects of the last five years.

Stafford has an amazing physical skillset. Here is a list of reasons I posted in support ofStafford some months ago:



He has three years of starting experience in the SEC
2. He comes from a pro offense
3. He knows how to read a defense, and can audible into advantageous plays, recognizes the blitz
4. He's willing to get pounded and get back up
5. He's mobile
6. He has good mechanics
7. He has unbelievable arm strength
8. He's played with a very marginal OL this year with three freshmen on it, and receivers who can't get separation, so he has to make NFL throws to get them the ball, he's not lobbing a rainbow up to a WR with 5 yards of separation.
9. He's a leader and he's been under intense scrutiny since he was 16 years old.
10. He's improved every year in college, despite having less and less talent around him to work with.


Combine that with reports of how teams were ďblown awayĒ by his board work, as well as the natural athleticism he showed in running the 40, and I donít know how one wouldnít be floored by this kid.

Why do we want Sanchez?

Itís a similar question with slightly different answers, but achieving the same result.



Sanchez is a leader of men. Itís that simple. Heís naturally charismatic, and he has the aura around him that all great QBs do. He owns the room when he walks in. That confidence bordering on cockiness (minus Jeff George dickheadedness) is a great asset.
He has textbook throwing mechanics
He has dancerís feet. The importance of this really cannot be stressed enough. The only coaching that he is going to need when coming into the league is how to read and react to NFL defenses. Heís about as close to mechanically flawless as anyone since the Human Juggs Machine, Carson Palmer
He has very good arm strength (itís not elite, but itís more than good enough to make any throw).
He comes from a pro offense
He has four years of post high school experience. Heís worked on the scout team, heís been a backup, heís been a spot starter, and heís been the man.
He had great production with a team that had good, but nowhere near elite, talent around him. This isnít the 2004 Trojans. They arenít anywhere near as talented.


Granted, both prospects have their warts. Every prospect has question marks. People employ revisionist history far too often when evaluating players after the fact.

What did Joe Montana or Tom Brady have that made them jump off the page to someone?
Peyton Manning was considered potentially maxed out as a prospect, a QB with little upside.
John Elway never even went to a bowl game, was he really a ďwinnerĒ? He was also a very generously listed ď6í3Ē. Look at him next to Peyton Manning and see if heís really 6í3Ē, and yet the same questions are used to discount Stafford and Sanchez.

Many of you will beg the following question:

Why not defense in this draft?
Itís quite simple:


The draft is seven rounds. We have six other picks
This draft lacks elite talent on defense at the top
Next yearís draft has two of the most ridiculously talented freaks at DE of the last decade (Carlos Dunlap and Everson Griffen), as well as better safety, LB, DT, and CB prospects across the board. It is a draft of defense
Borrowing on 3, there is a draft after this year. The 2009 Chiefs have a 0% chance of winning anything meaningful. This is a solid 3 year rebuilding process. If you want to see this team built correctly, you should look to 2011


Why do you hate Aaron Curry?

We donít. The fact of the matter is that Aaron Curry, for all the safety that he brings as a draft pick, and for all his physical gifts, cannot change games.

He has no history of rushing the passer. He expressed confidence in his ability to learn to do so, but heís never done it. That makes him as big of a project at that job as any safety Carl ever tried to move to corner.

Cover backers make tackles in space and take away the 3<sup>rd</sup>-5<sup>th</sup> receiving options. Thatís great, but itís also like saying that middle relievers are more important than starting pitchers. Both contribute to the win, but the starter has far more chances to affect the outcome of the game.

Curry, for all his projections, has also never played Mike. That will also entail a position move.

Letís address additional follow up questions:

ďWhy are you ĎQB or bustí no matter who the QB?Ē and ďWhy do you want to reach for any QB?Ē



We arenít
We donít.


No one here is saying we should take Freeman at 3, or think that Rhett Bomar or Nate Davis are the kinds of guys who could carry a franchise. Itís folly.

ďWhy is the spread so bad? Look at the #s QBs put up!Ē

The quarterback, his pedigree, and his experience are paramount. With the proliferation of the spread in college football, it will become more and more difficult in order to properly evaluate quarterbacks and how they translate to the pro game.

The spread works for the same reason that the option worked. There is simply not enough speed on college defenses to contain it, and defense is a chain, the weakest link causes the failure of all. Given that talent is spread so thin on college defenses, most teams have to trot out fourth corners that run like NFL defensive ends. Combine that with the fact that college players donít devote the same amount of time to film study and coaching as their pro counterparts, and college defenses run more simplistic schemes.

This leads to soft zone defenses with corners playing way off. WRs donít get jammed at the line, and their free release, when combined with a quasi-prevent D, allows them to kill the opposing defenses by paper cut, or if a single tackle is missed or assignment blown, by guillotine.

Furthermore, college quarterbacks from the spread are running a two read system, and they do not read the defenses in front of them. Look at any spread team before the snap. Watch how the QB looks to the sideline for instructions from the offensive coaching staff on what the defense across from him is. NFL QBs need to make as many as four reads on any given passing play that isnít a max protect situation.

The spread is a great equalizer for teams like Missouri and Kansas that donít have elite talent but want to exploit the lack of 1-80 talent on other teams. It is not a solution to an NFL defense, where everyone is talented, and where the schemes are more exotic.

It faces the same fate as the Run-N-Shoot: Kill the Quarterback.
When these things are taken into account, as well as the fact that all spread quarterbacks need to learn how to take snaps from under center and proper footwork for 3,5, and 7 step drops, you have a huge learning curve that exponentially increases the bust rate for the prospect.

QB is the riskiest position to draft. We should draft a safer position
Aundray Bruce, Tony Mandarich, Pac Man, Robert Gallery, Leonard Davis, Troy Williamson, Charles Rogers, Ryan Sims, Wendell Bryant, the list goes on forever

No position is safe.

Why not draft Crabtree?

WRs from the spread donít run a traditional NFL route tree. He has no experience in doing so, that increases his learning curve.

He lacks elite speed. WRs taken in the top 10 almost universally have elite speed

He lacks elite size.

He has a cracked foot

College stats are not a good predictor of NFL success. Look at Ron Dayne, Rashan Salaam, Timmy Chang, Jake Barton, Manny Hazard, or Alex Van Dyke

ďWhy not just draft a QB in the middle rounds?Ē

ChiefsCountry has compiled an impressive list of QBs who won the Super Bowl and where they were drafted.

So you want Thiggy as our quarterback.

How about these facts:
57% of the Super Bowls have been won by first round quarterbacks.
(Out of those quarterbacks only 3 were not top 10 picks)
40% of the Super Bowls won by top 5 picks.
21% have been won by 1st round quarterbacks that wasnt their original team (Dawson, Plunkett (2), Williams, Young, Dilfer)
16% of the Super Bowls were won by Montana and Brady
4% were Roger Staubuach's wins who would have went in the first if he wasnt going to Vietnam
14% were won by a 9th or lower (counting Warner who was Undrafted) and 4 of those wins were by Bart Starr & Roger Staubauch.
4% were won by second round quarterbacks
4% 3rd and 6th rounds picks that were not Montana or Brady
0% of the Super Bowls were won by a 7th round pick http://chiefsplanet.com/BB/showpost.php?p=5278394&postcount=129

Additionally, this was done before this yearís Super Bowl, in which another 1<sup>st</sup> round quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, won.

Moreover, Scott Wright has an extensive breakdown of the profound failure rate of 2<sup>nd</sup> and 3<sup>rd</sup> round quarterbacks over the last 15 years on his site, NFLDraftCountdown.

ďAll you do is insult peopleĒ

Actually we donít. We insult people a lot, but a large portion of that is born out of frustration for having the same argument ad infinitum and telling the same thing to people who donítí listen to what we say.

I realize that this list is not comprehensive. Itís merely hitting the high notes of the discussions that we have previously had. If anyone else from the Gang of 14 wants to add anything, feel free.

Thank you for your time,

HJ

a bunch of staggering statistics:

I have to admit it is very hard to argue with the above, especially when you point out the 80s Bears, 90s Bucs, and 00 Ravens spectacular defenses and relatively minor number of super bowl wins.

I bet the statistics are even more eye opening if you remove the SBs won by Brady, Montana, (both somewhat anomalies) and guys like Favre and Brees who were essentially 1st round picks(Brees was I believe the first pick of the 2nd round close enough or stfu).

I'm on board with if you really want a dynasty, you need one great guy at one position instead of 10-15 great players at a multitude of spots. If I was a GM I would draft a QB in the 1st every year until I found the franchise QB, I would take 9 Akili Smith's just to get that one Peyton.

This is a great thread! Thanks 'Hamas' Jenkins that was full of good stuff and knowledge.

It can't be expressed enough for Chiefs to draft a quarterback for our future hopes. To be the guy that our division get's sick and tired of and wants to puke when we face them. I get sick and tired of Rivers:Lin:, I'm not counting them out next year because of him. The Chiefs have averaged a new Rehash QB every 2.5 years (if I had done my math right) since Blackledge. Trent Green being the longest lasting QB with 5 years with us. That's not getting the job done for championship caliber football IMO. There is nothing wrong with having a vet QB to start out a season till our draftee is ready or he just kicks ass enough to win it but the vets time table is not long. So having a guy to be deamed franchise and molded into that role for the time it's his turn so we don't miss a beat. Personaly I have no quarrems to watch a young guy struggle, but get to watch him grow as a player to become something special for this team. I think the sooner we get him on the field the better.

Some fans need to let go of there fear of drafting a QBotf. Blackledge is ancient history but the retread QBs are still the major problem because apparently of him. If more fans start clammouring for us to draft a QBotf hopefully we will and hopefully it will be a first round gem. We may just build a team for multiple Super Bowl VICTORY> Who knows? or we can continue to do what we do and live in our mediocre hell.

Maybe next year? :doh!:

It's been long long over do to draft a first round pick. Nothing is guaranteed but I think the reward is well worth the risk. Not taking a QBotf is even a bigger risk for us to ever win or sniff at the hopes of winning a Super Bowl.

20 years worth of drafting QBs. I boldfaced some of the more notable names who turned into starters or decent backups (at least for a while).

I think there's a more recent trend which shows that the teams are getting "smarter" when it comes to drafting QBs (i.e. more high picks seem to be working out). But, overall, aside from the obvious blue-chippers, there's still quite a bit of hit-or-miss with high picks flaming out and mid- to late-round picks shining.

The idea that you HAVE to have a Top Five QB pick is ridiculous.

KC drafted QBs from 1970...This is our history of drafting QBs year round and overal pick #, & School drafted from.

1972 Rnd 7, 179th pick Dean Carlson Iowa State

1974 Rnd 3, 66th pick David haynes Kansas

1978 Rnd 4, 23erd pick Steve Fuller Clemson

1981 Rnd 12, pick 319 Bob Gagliano Utah State

1983 Rnd 1, 7th pick Todd Blackledge Penn State

1987 Rnd 7, 186th pick Doug Hudson Nicholls St University *

1988 Rnd 11, 282nd pick Danny McManus Florida Sate

1989 Rnd 2, 32nd pick Mike Elkins Wake Forest

1992 Rnd 2, 40th pick Matt Blundin Virginia

1994 Rnd 7, 199th pick Steve Mathews Memphis

1995 Rnd 4, 134th pick Steve Stenstrom Stanford

1997 Rnd 4, 110th pick Pat Barnes California

2006 Rnd 3, 85th pick Brodie Croyle Alabama *


*Doug Hudson from the 1987 draft class was the last QB to start for Chiefs that we drafted untill Brodie Croyle*

Note from 1997 to 2006 no QBs taken

I don't think the round matters as much as actually drafting QBs, and have a system in place to develop them for future or immidiate use. Not every QB is going to pan out, but got to be ready and have some one worthy for taking over this prestigious position.

Maybe it wasn't Blackledge but Doug Hudson who ruined it for us? His only start did not pan out so well :spock: Any one want to remember?

Brodie was a half azz attempt but with his injury history & lack of faith in him to stay healthy put him on the oh noze list. Too bad, I did have high hopes for him, at the same time wanted us to continue to have draftee prospects for that reason of him not lasting.

We got to take some fortitude and draft a QB with the idea of him becomming a franchise QB. To continue to do this even after we get a guy.
I don't care if this has been hashed out, this is about us competing and winning a Super Bowl. Our team has not wiffed that dream for a long time and it's past time to have our own QB of fortune. I would like to have a QB last long enough to surpass Lenny the Cool in passing yards and TDs. That would be kind of cool in my life time. I would love to have a QB for years to come that is the envy of the league. I would love to have a QB take ownership of this team that we picked from the draft. That we can call our own and not tainted from another team.

StevieRay hates every word I type on here so bad that he wants to make a year long ban bet with me because I said that I think Matt Cassel has played as well as we will ever see if we dont add Josh McDaniels as our qb coach.

I have coined the term "Cassenial" as the term that should be used for a bunch of members here.

This is what gets to me. You guys want to draft a qb in the first for the sake of drafting a qb in the first. Who worthy have we skipped out on really the past three years? Only Flacco and Freeman. Dorsey was a no brainer pick so its not like we fucked up there. Tyson jackson was a fuck up, but if we had to do it again, id take Raji, Matthews, Harvin etc over Sanchez. Berry was a no brainer this year also.

So the whole "we had 3 top 5 picks and didn't get a qb" argument is BS to me. We didn't skip over any worthy QBs. Now if we have a chance at Gabbert this draft and we don't draft him, I'll be pissed. But I'm not mad over skipping over Sanchez. Freeman kind of, but no one at the time thought he'd be this good.

Flacco and Sanchez are 100% more worthy than Cassel. Both have already surpassed Cassel's accomplishments in 1/2 and 1/3 of his NFL career.

The more interesting thing to me is where in the first round those QBs were taken:

Ryan 3
Sanchez 5
Cutler 11
Roethlisberger 11
Flacco 18
Rogers 24



I would say this is quite interesting...

since there is no doubt that guys who walk into better situations have a better chance at success...

if Alex Smith falls to the Packers instead of Rodgers would he have blossomed like Rodgers behind Favre?

Perhaps...he at least would have had a much better shot than he had in San Fran.

Oh come on, Gabbert could very well be the next Alex Smith...why on earth should we take a chance on him (even if we would have to trade up to do so) if we have a solid chance at a damn good OL or any other position on the field?

So only two were taken in the top 10. Ryan warranted his pick. I'm one of those who believes Sanchez was taken far higher than he should have been, but people will argue that. Cutler should I think get an asterick, since he isn't playing for the team that drafted him. Flacco and Roethlisberger were small school guys. Rodgers was and will always be kind of a head-scratcher, as far as his draft-day fall goes.

Who's the best of that bunch? Has to be Roethlisberger, the guy with the rings. Ryan would I think come after him, although Atlanta is still a run-first team. Then probably Rodgers and Flacco. Cutler is to me a flake. I expected bigger things out of him, and you never know whether he's going to come out and have a 4 TD day or a 4 pick day. And then there was Sanchez. Maybe the Jets can continue to win despite him.

The thing that's really lost is how good these guys' teams are. They all have strong defenses. Most of them are asked more to manage their offenses, with the exception of Roethlisberger, who's basically been the Steelers offense since about 2007. Tom Brady would fall into that category, too. Those two guys are I think far more important to their teams than any of the other QBs currently in the playoffs. The rest of them are closer to what Cassel was asked to be during the year - make your plays but don't screw up. The difference, of course, being that some of them have shown that they can not only let themselves be carried, but also come through and make that big play when the team needs it.

I'm one of those guys that believes it doesn't really matter where you get your quarterback. Sure, a Peyton Manning would be nice, but you have to be in a position to land one. And unfortunately, for all the QBs I've wanted the Chiefs to take in the last decade, they haven't been. Ryan was the most recent guy I was big on that I thought we'd have a shot at. I thought we'd be in a position for one in 2011, but it doesn't look like it now, the way that the NCAA season played-out, paired with the 'hopeful' performance they got out of Cassel. That was basically my worst-case scenario for him and for the Chiefs: he showed just enough flashes to give some hope for the future, but in the end left way too many questions.

I think Rogers is the best of the bunch at this point IMO. How long did he sit behind Favre? 3-4 years? Packers did a great job of transitioning from Favre to Rogers.

How does Locker compare to Rogers? That's what I'm wondering right now.

He's made big plays his entire career and in some very tough situations. Average Joe can't hold his jock.

Pisses me off that we coulda had him for a 2nd rounder last year when he got in trouble. Pittsburgh was ready to run him out of town. I know fans that still want him gone.

Roethlisberger has been too good in the clutch in his career to have Rodgers rated ahead of him, but Rodgers is definately making plenty of teams regret passing on him when he slid on draft day years ago.

I could be mistaken, but I remember a thread here where I believe plenty of people wanted nothing to do with him at that time.

Big Ben has had a better career to this point but I think Rodgers is playing better right now. And with all his clutch play Big Ben is a dumbass.
