Approve. If you have a chance to upgrade your roster, you do it. Is Orton better than the third QB on our roster? Here's a hint: we don't have a third QB on our roster.

I see no poll, but it's easy to answer. I approve completely. Orton is no better than Cassel. In fact, he may be worse. Since it sounds like we will get a compensatory pick for him in the 2012 draft however, it is a no brainer. I don't care if they even suit him up. A pick is a pick.

approve.

he's an improvement over Cassel, so i'm happy with the move.

Strongly approve. It's not my money, and I don't think Stanzi's the future. Even if he is, it's not likely he will be harmed by holding a clipboard for another 6 games.

I'm not crazy about it, but it has to be better than watching Palko the rest of the year.

Worst case scenario he is gone is 6 weeks and we get a compensation draft pick.

Win fucking Win

If he plays well and keeps the Chiefs competitive in these games, it shows dbag Cassel is worthless. We don't resign Orton and get a draft pick. We still draft a first round QB. Anything to get Cassel the fuck out of here I am all for.

I guess, I approve of this because I agree. Now, if I'm wrong and Hamas and Warpath and everyone are right, then I think this is completely stupid.

But there has to be more to it. And I see a lot of possible upsides to this kind of move. Time will tell. But I haven't been as absolutely unhappy with everything Pioli has done so far as others have.

I'll trust this until given a reason to thin otherwise.

The idea should be draft a QB to get long term success & open the window of oppertunity to win a Super Bowl or find dynasty Super Bowl success. Taking that chance or risk is something Chiefs and Chief fan base is just to scared to do. Got to play the kid to find out. Again this is the way and life of Chiefs kingdom.

We didn't give up any draft picks just a little $. I don't really care.

If we still stink it up Stanzi can still get a shot the last 3 weeks or so.

A TRUE QB controversy? Is this a joke or something, I can't tell.

11-23-2011, 03:13 PM
veteran QB that we should of picked up in free agency.

In last year of contract so it's meaningless long term unless he plays and explodes

another chance to see if "it's all a cassel problem" or not


where's the downside? (unless of course you are wearing a tinfoil hat and are just looking for a downside)

i don't think this means anything about Stanzi either

approve

He throws about as well left handed as Palko does so I am ok with it.

Like the move. Orton isn't elite and we should still draft a QB 1st next year but he's a big step up over anybody on the roster.

We would have had much more success had we signed Orton instead of traded for Cassel a few years back.

I am interested to see how Orton works as a play-action QB. He has a nice deep ball and we are a run first team. I can see this working.

11-23-2011, 03:46 PM
So let me get this straight... Orton couldn't hold onto his job as a starter in Chicago, so they banished him to Denver. He then couldn't hold onto his job as a starter in Denver, being replaced by a guy who can barely throw the ball and who many on CP claim is the worst "starting QB imposter" in NFL history. The Chiefs then pick up said loser off waivers, having to pay the rest of his salary IIRC, when they barely know what Palko can do and have absolutely no idea what Stanzi can do. Hell, I'm not even a Chiefs fan, and I chose "strongly disapprove". I thought Orton going back to Chicago made sense, because there's a familiarity and they're a strong playoff contender in good shape in the standings; for KC, it makes absolutely no sense IMO.

we had a deep threat but didnt have a QB that could throw deep. (Stanzi could have but he was never active till Monday)

Under the circumstances, I like the decision.

I noted with some interest that Haley was very upbeat in his press conference today (conducted prior to the public announcement). Lately, he's been stoic ... almost surly. Today, his demeanor was very different.

I continue to believe that he grew to despise Cassel and has been looking forward to seeing some changes made at the QB position. No doubt, this is one of the reasons we drafted Stanzi and picked up Orton as a stopgap.

I counsel continued patience and faith, my friends.

Palko's clearly awful, and the FO has made it pretty clear they're not starting Stanzi this year. Orton means we get to watch 6 weeks of mildly bearable football for the remainder of the season at least.

Haley may, in fact, hate Cassel. The reality is that these are all people and we all work with certain people better that others.

But, I think that is more of a comment on Haley than Cassel. Because from the outside, it looks like Haley can't get along with decent offensive coaches.

Having a problem with a QB that Josh McDaniels coveted after working with him for three years in NE, may be an indication that Haley is not the easiest guy to get along with.

If Haley does hate Cassel, then Cassel needs to go. The debate over whether he is average or not is moot if Haley doesn't like or trust him.

Spending that cash to sign Kyle Orton is like being stabbed 25 times and, as first aid, applying a used Kotex on the wound. Knock yourself out if you think Orton's "the answer". The friggin' Broncos are probably laughing their asses off that someone actually claimed him and saved them the payroll money. Considering how most of you were screaming about Cassel and the inability of the Chiefs to draft a franchise QB and how they weren't giving Stanzi a chance, I'm shocked any of you think Neckbeard is a good move.

Matt Cassel, Career: Completion Rate of 59%, TD/INT ratio of 1.69:1 (76 TDs, 45 INTs), and a Career QB rating of 82.5.

Kyle Orton, Career: Completion Rate of 58%, TD/INT ratio of 1.44:1 (79 TDs, 55 INTs), and a Career QB rating of 79.

That whole deal about "Haley can't work with anyone!!! Haley can't get along with other people!!! OMG!!! OMG!!!! He's a Honey Badger Man!!!" is a myth and a bunch of baloney. And stupid, to boot.

Haley has gotten along with people all of his life. He's had years of experience along side some excellent coaches and rose through the ranks by working his ass off, making intelligent decisions, and ... wait for it ... getting along with people.

Well, I don't listen to Nick Wright.

I do look at this:

Haley fired Gailey. Okay, bad fit.... gets pass.

Then, he is the defacto OC. Bad offensive year.

Then, you get to the second year, he gets Weis.

Now, maybe Weis didn't leave due to differences with Haley. But, it certainly seemed like there was some differences there.

But, then you have this year.... and he has Muir as OC?... and once again, the offensive sucks and Cassel looks lost.

Most of us agree that he is only a stopgap, he can't be much worse than what is on the roster and starting at the moment. Why retard Stanzi at this point, he hasn't had a full off-season and time with the coaching to see his full potential.

Nevertheless, this is a good move on several levels.

FAX

Almost everyone hated Cassel and wanted him gone, replaced by anybody.

Well, the Chiefs just blew $2.5 million (the remainder of Orton's salary) for 6 games of someone who is actually statistically worse than Cassel.

Good move.

They could've just let Palko start another game or two, and then saw what Stanzi had, and spent the $2.5 million on beer and Doritos.

Well, I don't listen to Nick Wright.

I do look at this:

Haley fired Gailey. Okay, bad fit.... gets pass.

Then, he is the defacto OC. Bad offensive year.

Then, you get to the second year, he gets Weis.

Now, maybe Weis didn't leave due to differences with Haley. But, it certainly seemed like there was some differences there.

But, then you have this year.... and he has Muir as OC?... and once again, the offensive sucks and Cassel looks lost.

Cassel looks lost? Hmmm. I wonder why that might be ??? ... ???

What a puzzler ... a real head-scratcher, right there, man.

I wonder if we'll ever figure out why Cassel looks lost?

Best case scenario.

Orton shows that this offense isn't fucking retarded. Pioli and Haley realize that Cassel is garbage and he's let go this offseason. Pioli then drafts our QBoTF in the 1st round of the draft. Orton is signed to a 2-3 year deal. Orton and rookie QB compete in TC and preseason to the be the starter.

There are several good reasons to bring on a veteran quarterback under these circumstances.

And Stanzi will get his opportunity, fear not.

If you spend enough time around this place, you get the idea that Haley and Pioli have never seen a good quarterback play. Hell, there is a group of posters here that would fire everybody on the staff twice a day in order to demonstrate to the blow-up-doll in the corner just how smart they are.

But, as for Haley and Pioli not understanding our quarterback situation, nothing could be further from the truth. They know what Cassel is and they're on the hunt for their guy, you can be certain of that. And, if Pioli isn't kicking himself in the ass for bringing him in, I'd be happy to do it for him.

I am not, however, implying that Orton is that guy ... or that they think he is. This is a stopgap deal for a veteran.

Drop the last phrase, and we're cool. Stanzi has the touch on the ball, which is mandatory. His mental calculations of Newtonian physics will cause you to impregnate your better half, a decade beyond conventional child-bearing capability!

Stanzi is so Chuck Norris, that Chuck Norris hired a 10-person staff, to put him on call-block!

If captain neckbeard wins a couple games we could be sitting around 15th by the time it's all said and done. No way Barkley or RGIII last that long, what will the team have gained by this?

The fact that the front office still believes this team can make a playoff run is both a plus and a negative. The negative is that they believe they are only a mediocre Matt Cassel talent level QB away from competing. We are not that close. Already two games down on the Raiders with the toughest part of our schedule ahead, Peyton Manning would have a tough time bringing us to the playoffs this year. I dislike it for the fact that it is what the Chiefs always do, forego the development of a young QB for a retread or the latest backup who had a few good games. If he wins a few games it takes us out of the running to get a quality QB. If he doesn't it wastes the opportunity for Stanzi to get his feet wet and for the organization to see what he has.

Count me as one who hates the move.

There's only a compensatory pick if he goes to another team. As your typical Chiefs fan trained to expect disappointment, I can envision a future with a Cassell / Orton two-headed monster that the organization thinks will bring us to the promised land.

Say Orton plays well the rest of the way - comparatively speaking - and leads the team to a couple of wins. The front office starts thinking with a good off-season and the return of Moeaki and Charles that they might have something. Why not sign him for a few more years and let the competition between him and Cassell play out? Why not keep both just in case one gets injured or inconsistent? We go 9-7 or 8-8 the next three years, or just close enough to make them think that a slight tweak here or there will get us there. No need to draft a young QB. They are doing just fine.

Does anyone here really think there is no way that this scenario could happen?

Sure, it could happen.

After all, Haley was successful with a retread in Arizona. I'm seeing this very differently, though.

To me, it's a sign that the Cassel era is coming to a close. That's a good thing no matter how we get there.

As for the impact on the draft, there is nothing in this move that precludes the drafting of a young QB.

As for playing Stanzi, he's simply not ready to play. He hasn't even had a full off-season, yet. We need to temper enthusiasm with pragmatic deliberation on that deal. Playing him too early against the kind of competition we're facing right now could lead to more bad than good in the long run. A lot more.

To me, this is about signing a veteran as a stopgap considering that we have no experienced depth whatsoever at quarterback. Plus, it gives us options. If we keep Orton next year, he provides competition. If we don't, we pick up a pick. If we do, we have trade fodder. If we don't, we haven't lost anything this year since the draft doesn't occur until April.

Maybe if the Arrowhead crowd gave him a kick in the ass by going absolutely insane at the next game that he takes the field it might put a spark to his ass that he hasnt felt in a looong time.

Also maybe when he stops and thinks a little.. Bowe,Breaston and a young rookie to pass too hmmm

Speaking Wednesday evening, Kyle Orton indicated that he fully intends to report ot the Chiefs after they were awarded him on waivers.

"Just wanted everybody to hear it from me first," Orton said. "I am happy to be a part of the Chiefs. ... I am excited about the last few days and I am looking forward to getting to kno my teammates with the Chiefs." ESPN's John Clayton reported early Wednesday that Orton might not report to K.C. because he wanted to be a Bear. Orton will probably be the Chiefs' starting QB by Week 13.

Agreed, to a point. If he was stepping onto a decent football team with a some semblance of cohesion and sense of direction but lost their QB then I think he would probably have an easier transition (ala Palmer after two weeks) but that is not the case here.

Considering how most of you were screaming about Cassel and the inability of the Chiefs to draft a franchise QB and how they weren't giving Stanzi a chance, I'm shocked any of you think Neckbeard is a good move.

Matt Cassel, Career: Completion Rate of 59%, TD/INT ratio of 1.69:1 (76 TDs, 45 INTs), and a Career QB rating of 82.5.

Kyle Orton, Career: Completion Rate of 58%, TD/INT ratio of 1.44:1 (79 TDs, 55 INTs), and a Career QB rating of 79.

Congratulations. You just got worse.

Meh.

I'm not to crazy about statistics sometimes. They could be smoke and mirrors. I think its more important to pay attention to a quarterbacks attributes than statistics. At the very least, Orton does throw a better ball then Cassel. He does have better field vision and better overall pocket presence. So, at least the Chiefs improved in those areas.

Kyle Orton - QB - Chiefs

Speaking Wednesday evening, Kyle Orton indicated that he fully intends to report to the Chiefs after they were awarded him on waivers.
"Just wanted everybody to hear it from me first," Orton said. "I am happy to be a part of the Kansas City Chiefs. ... I am excited about the last few days and I am looking forward to getting to know my teammates with the Chiefs." ESPN's John Clayton reported early Wednesday that Orton might not report to K.C. because he wanted to be a Bear. It appears The Professor's report was inaccurate, which we've noticed is becoming a recurring theme for Clayton. Orton will probably be the Chiefs' starting quarterback by Week 13.

Almost everyone hated Cassel and wanted him gone, replaced by anybody.

Well, the Chiefs just blew $2.5 million (the remainder of Orton's salary) for 6 games of someone who is actually statistically worse than Cassel.

Good move.

They could've just let Palko start another game or two, and then saw what Stanzi had, and spent the $2.5 million on beer and Doritos.

Who fucking cares about the money? At least we didn't give up a draft pick for a shitty QB like we got from the fucking Patriots.

This is exciting to me because it indicates that Pioli might have finally seen the light when it comes to Cassel. And, if that's true, it means we're on the hunt for a real, bona fide quarterback and Pioli will want to go young if possible.

He knows this fan base by now. And he knows that, if the Chiefs draft and anoint a young guy, the fans will support the decision and buy tickets to games. For all the bashing Pioli gets on here (some of it from me), he's not a stupid guy.

For Chiefs fans, this is a great move. A little late, but great nonetheless.

So can Cassel. My question is, are we doing it to avoid drafting a QB next year or giving a shot to Stanzi? The KC Chiefs have tried to develop 3 QBs from the draft in their whole history, Livingston, Fuller and Blackledge. We're the organization afraid to step out of the house.

I'm hoping you are right. If it's just a 6 game thing while Cassel mends and they go back to Cassel next year with no QBOTF on board then it's a fail move. If Pioli and Co realize that Cassel is a joke and this is a stop gap while we get a true QBOTF in next years draft then it's a great move.

We can still get a good QB prospect. Jake Locker went #8 last year to a 6-10 team.

I don't think they were going to pick a QB anyway. In that event, this was a good signing. It could be the first step to getting rid of Cassel. You have to take what you can get at this point.

I'd bet that the Chiefs called Orton's agent before they placed the claim to talk about Orton going into next season.

They probably told him that if he came to KC and liked it, and resigned for next season, that he'd get the chance to compete with Cassel for the starter's job next season.

Audition mow, with a chance to start next season, something he had no chance at in Chicago.

Time will tell, of course, but I don't see that strategy in this situation.

We needed a stopgap vet on the team. There are still a bunch of games left, after all.

If things work out well, we'll get another pick out of this deal plus give the team an opportunity to get the post-Cassel offense working. Next April, we'll pick another QB and have true competition at that position. Hopefully, that will mean a young guy with upside will get the start.

And, even if we decide to keep Orton, we will be moving forward ... not stuck in the mud with Cassel because Orton won't be able to beat out a truly talented, young, smart, strong-armed quarterback in camp.

What this means is that Pioli is finally seen his way past the Cassel experiment and that's a good thing.

I think that one's perspective on this deal has a great deal to do with how smart or stupid one believes Pioli to be, Mr. milkman.

Now, to be perfectly honest, I've waffled on that particular issue myself. However, in this case (and assuming that Pioli is not a complete, certifiable dumbass), I don't see a downside. I mean, break it down ...

First off, we know we need additional depth at the position, Orton has experience, and was available at a reasonable price. Therefore, timing-wise, it makes sense merely from a franchise perspective.

Second off, if Orton winds up playing this year (not a given), he may allow us to further properly develop and evaluate the offense. That's a win/win even if we lose out the rest of this season.

Third off, there's really no reasonable possibility that we're going to play Stanzi before the staff believes he's ready. People can hate on Haley all they want, but Zorn is in this deal, too. If the coaching staff says he's not ready, the odds are he's not ready. Of course, in order to go along with this part, you have to buy into the idea that playing Stanzi before he's ready will result in more bad than good over the long haul. People are screaming for Stanzi (here and according to chiefs.com, as well), but it's a desire that's far more emotional than realistic or objective. Therefore, Orton is not standing in Stanzi's way ... at this point, at least.

Fourth off, if Orton is unwilling to sign an extended contract ... or, if the Chiefs decide to part ways, we get a compensatory pick. A no-lose deal considering he's relatively cheap and we've made no significant investment in terms of time into the guy.

Fifth off, this is a clear message that Pioli is no longer saying, "It's Casselway or the highway." To me, that is the obvious sub-text to this entire deal. Pioli could have easily let us roll on with Palko and Stanzi, chalked up this season to injuries, saved the money, and waited for Cassel to heal. Instead, he's brought in a veteran who could probably beat out Cassel in camp with his beard tied behind his back.

Sixth off, assuming that you're right and Orton is with us next year, it does not mean that we will not draft a QB. Nor does it mean that we will not dedicate time and effort into Stanzi. Just the opposite. It gets Cassel and the emotional/prideful/egotistical connection to Pioli out of the way. That's nothing but good news for us.

Seventh off, this season is far from over regardless of what the nay-sayers would like to nay-say. Hell, we could still win the division. I know it's a long shot and very unlikely, but it's football and it bounces funny. If we win 5 more games, we could win this thing.

As I've stated previously, there are a lot of good things that can come from this ... and only 1 bad thing. And, that bad thing is the same bad thing we've been living with for almost 3 years. Therefore, I submit that it's change and change for the better that can only result in an improved performer under center and, as a result, a better offense.

I was about ... oh ... about 30 feet away and I hit him square between the eyes with that Fruit Wheat. It just bounced off his head and he went back to stealing seeds like nothing had ever happened let alone getting tagged with a Fruit Wheat from 30 feet away.

I figure that squirrels are used to getting tagged on the head by stuff since they hang out under trees and get conked by acorns and stuff all the time. Still and all, you would think that a Fruit Wheat would do more damage than an acorn on account of the fact that an acorn is roundish and a Fruit Wheat is square and has sharp, wheatie corners.

its easy to see Haley and the coaching staff were installing a game plan each week for Cassel that was equal to a rookie starter and he's been here for three years.

I honestly think drafturbators should get over this.

In the event we're going after a R1 QB, we can still get one if we're 6-10 (see Jake Locker), and Orton is a perfect stopgap, too.

You don't HAVE to be in the top 10 to get a good QB. In fact I would argue the bust rate over the last 10 years is about the same for top 10 QBs and 11-32 QBs in the last 10-15 years.

11 - Daunte Culpepper
32 - Drew Brees
11 - Ben Roethlisberger
24 - Aaron Rodgers
11 - Jay Cutler
18 - Joe Flacco
17 - Josh Freeman

The bottom line is if we're going after a QB, if we REALLY WANT ONE, Pioli is not going to let picking 12th instead of 8th stop him.

There's some validity to that. Advanced NFL Stats has done a handful of blog posts in the past about how draft order predicts success for QBs. In general, there's a clear correlation between draft order and success, but it's a little "fuzzy" in that the correlation works best when you group QBs by round or at least by the order taken in the draft. Here's a link for any geeks interested enough to read it:

http://www.advancednflstats.com/2010/04/are-top-draft-pick-qbs-any-better-than.html

Here's another that compares round drafted to pro bowl probability:

http://www.advancednflstats.com/2008/04/drafting-qbs.html

And here's another that compares round drafted to career length and a couple other factors:

http://www.advancednflstats.com/2008/04/drafting-qbs-2.html

Basically, your probability of success definitely decreases as you get later in the draft (go figure). However, inside the first round, your probability of success only varies a small amount - it's not like you're twice as likely to be successful with the #1 pick vs. the #20 pick, for example.

I'm betting that Orton signs a contarct extension in the next week with the Chiefs, and the promise that he would contend for the starter's role next season is the reason he decided to report.

We should sign Jason Campbell in free agency to come in and compete, as well.

Then we would have a shitastic trio of QBs that could lead this team to the land of mediocrity, where 10-6 wild card and first round playoff exists are wrapped in sunshine and rainbows.

Here's actually maybe the key table from all of that crap I just posted:

QB Pick Pr(Better)
1 0.81
2 0.38
3 0.52
4 0.38
5 0.50
6 0.28
7 0.31
8 0.54

That lists the probability that a QB taken (in that order) will be BETTER than the QB taken after. So basically, if you can take the first QB available, that player will be better than the second QB taken 81% of the time. After that, it's pretty much a toss-up within reason.

I wouldn't necessarily be pissed at extending Orton IF we 1) dump Cassel and 2) draft a QB in the first round. If they extend him and don't do both of the other two, I'll be pretty cranky.

What this tells me is that you might have to draft a first-rounder two, three even more times before you find your guy. You might get lucky and get your guy the first time, but if not, cut your losses and get back in there and draft another one until you get it right. But once you find a good QB, you can compete for the Superbowl for 10 years or more.

The Chiefs are like a guy at a bar who is looking at all the other guys scoring, but he is afraid to ask a girl to dance because he might get turned down.

:hmmm:I just want to see a change and the change that I want to see is not Palko.

Ortons a fair QB hes not elite and hes not Cassel range either.
Hes been thru a couple of ugly times thats tarnished how hes looked at and how he feels about Football.
Maybe if the Arrowhead crowd gave him a kick in the ass by going absolutely insane at the next game that he takes the field it might put a spark to his ass that he hasnt felt in a looong time.

Also maybe when he stops and thinks a little.. Bowe,Breaston and a young rookie to pass too hmmm

I'm dreaming I know but its better than expecting Cassel next Sunday night and knowing how its going to end.

I like your optimism. Yes. You are dreaming.

Why wouldn't you? I'll be honest, he might not start because this is a wasted season, snd what Palko was brought in to do was a tall order. Your first start, in NE, on Monday, against a mad NE team!!! Oh, and if that wasn't enough, he get to follow that up with a Sunday night game against the Steelers! I'm sure wins weren't in any of our minds.

Did Palko have problems? Sure.. Were the INTs on hime? Sure.. Did any of us die? No... So I'm thinking he not only has a start this sunday night, but perhaps the next game two. But the 2011 NE, PIT, and CHI teams are a tall order to say the least. Perhaps we let all three know that, right now it's Palko's turn; if things get bad enough (out of hand), then we look at Stanzi later in those games. But, other than the INTs (throwing issues), I think Palko managed the game "OK".

Now, what's that got to do with Orton you ask?? Perhaps little, but with our ability to at least have him on hand and see if he fits our system, why not. It's not like we don't have the cap space!

Tat being said, I'm still game for focusing on a QB in the draft... This team needs an awesome QB for a change!

His biggest problem is his arm is way too weak to play in the NFL and that won't change, ever. He has no business being on an NFL roster.

I think we have to wait and see what the long-term plan is. THere are reasons why I think Orton would be a very good pickup, but if it's supposed to be a long-term plan, this is probably full of fail.

I am not gonna over analyze it. The Chiefs lost their starting QB and need one so they got the best guy they could find for a reasonable price. They know he isn't Johnny Unitas. He has an NFL arm and gives them at least as good of a chance as Mat did.

It took an " injury " to replace Cassel. I don't trust them if Kyle Orton playes a hint better than Cassel that they won't stick with him & just draft a later round QB to appease fans for drafting a quarterback.

Again no balls to play a rookie QB no matter what round it is. Just stick in a rehash QB that another team gave up on.

His biggest problem is his arm is way too weak to play in the NFL and that won't change, ever. He has no business being on an NFL roster.

Perhaps, but how long have we trotted a weak mind out to lead out team? One example cited before was the sheer number of dumb looks Matt has tossed toward our sideline, Palko's weak arm went to work on him armband, coming up with a play.

His harm might bring him down in the NFL, and even have him listed as having "never should have been here because of his arm." I can't wait for the "never should have been here because of his brain and propensity to shit his pants" list.

So what's next, Orton or Stanzi? Wasted season for sure, so do we give Stanzi a one-game prove yourself or leave offer? Maybe two, then start sharpening Orton's skills in case we don't draft a franchise QB?

The fact he is on the team tells us fans that they are truly not committed to the QB position and to winning championships.

Yep

It's just no different than what Carl Peterson brought us for 20 years. It's a panic move and that shows exactly your post comment.

It's only a disaster if we assume what happens next.

If this is just a move for Orton to finish off the season, it's fine. I think people are getting a little too hung up on a 5th round pick who may or may not be good, and may or may not be ready.

Hung up? I don't have any great expectaions from him this year other than getting a chance to play and learn from mistakes and improve for next year. Giving him a chance is only thing we can do to help this team for the future from aspect of film studdy and learn if he can even handle it. I'm wanting to draft a first rounder regardless but also have Stanzi groomed for compitition that is desperatly needed at that position. Bringing in lame dick QB like Kyle Oton sabatoges his development opportunity & sabatoges our chances at taking a first round draft pick. Why are Chiefs and Chiefs fans so scared to play a rookie QB? It's what we haven't done in 25+ years.

Where the hell is this coming from? The guy hasn't played a freaking snap.

Talk about grasping at straws.

We picked him up off the waiver wire and now we are looking to resign him already huh?

How many players has KC picked up on waiver the last 3 years? How many have we resigned?

I said this already, but I believe the reason Orton came to KC, and showed up so quickly, is because Pioli made some kind of verbal commitement.

I think the claim would not have even been placed if Pioli didn't talk to Orton and his agent prior to making the claim.

We've spent hours at length discussing first round picks vs. 5th round picks.

I like Stanzi. I want to see what he's made of. But c'mon, it's not like we're talking about leaving Aaron Rodgers on the bench.

I don't see it. Orton wasn't going to toss several million $$ over 6 games.

Now did they tell him he would have a chance to play and not be a back up? Yea I can see that.

Talk about a contract? I don't see anything outside of Pioli telling them you come here and play well we will talk after the season but that is far from a commitment.

I will say if they DID, that's a good sign because that means Cassel is a dead man walking.

I don't see it though.

Several million?

It's been reported that 2.5 mil was wrong, that he in fact would only be giving away 1.5 mil.

But I'm betting they will have him signed to a contact extension by season's end, and that the commitment they made to him was that he would be given a legitimate chance to compete with Cassel.

I was wondering if that is where it comes from because while the picking him up doesn't bother me right now, any intention to sign him does so then I thought, well they may just do that.

I refuse to believe it because that would ruin my football life for the foreseeable future.

Contract extension, perhaps. Competing with Cassel? Find that hard to believe. Contract extension for Orton = Cassel cut. Why pay Cassel when there is no way he'd beat out Orton.

Many here know that you are wise beyond your years, Mr. milkman ... or, perhaps, in spite of them.

However, it should be noted that Orton couldn't stand being associated with the goat people of the mountains any longer. Imagine the way he felt ... embarrassed ... humiliated ... mortified. I mean, the guy was yanked for a Tebow ... hell ... it even sounds obscene when you say it.

Pioli may not have had to offer him a legitimate try-out next year. He may have simply had to offer him some beard conditioner and an outside shot at playing against the goat people later this year.

Competition? There is not going be competition, there going to stick with Orton now. No such thing as competition for starting job in Kansas City. Cassel never had it, they pick a guy and go with him and not a rookie QB is going get the reps or playing time to get the opportunity to beat out any retread QB in Kansas City. Just doesn't happen. Not since the 80's.

Pioli and Haley want to win now, we are getting back Jamaal Charles and Eric Berry & Moeaki next year so we will be back to being good, just not good enough with a lame dick QB at helm. We have had reject QBs start for this team time and time again, it never changes.

the Chiefs have never groomed a QB.
they would rather use some other teams Backup as their starter.
that's just the way it's always been in KC.

i just hope Orton has a chance to play enough to rid us of Cassel.
