OK he has the same stats avg as Cassle. BS! My dad and I argue about the Cheifs as if we're Pioli and Haley. I told him 3 weeeks ago, "dude. We finally have our QB." He looked at me like I was crazy and borderline ignored me.

I tried explaining to him we finaly have a qb that can make all of the throws. All he could muster up was he wasn't shit in Denve and he wasn Shit in Chicago. I told him he had good stats lat yar and turned Brandn Lloyd into NFLs #1 wr last year. He wasn't buying it but my point was valid.

I further went to explain that now Orton had something he's NEVER had as far as weapons. Now he has 2 BIG WRs as well as a WR that will stretch the field. Add JC and Moeki coming back next year and I think we can be a top 5 offense with Orton.

I just don't understand why people think he's a fluke ad try to compare him to Cassle when he's HEAD AND SHOULDERS above Cassel in EVERY category. I'll go so far as to say we don't need to draft qb this year if we sign Orton... I'm als thinking with Berry coming back and a O tackle and another stud LB to complement DJ, we're poised for a SUPERBOWL RUN!

It's the eyeball test. Orton has been in the league for a long time now.

We know who he is. He's a hot/cold guy who is a fair upgrade over Cassel.

He's the type of guy who will always be around 15th or so best QB in the league. It works for now.

I'm even okay with Orton as the QB next year for a bit assuming we draft a QB in the first. That's the key. That doesn't change the fact that the Chiefs need to finally do what they have neglected to do which is take a gamble and draft a QB in the first. It's the mostly likely way to get a franchise QB. They haven't done it and thus we haven't won. Simple as that.

I love this idea. Realisticly though, palko is gone. We're probably stuck with casserole for 2 more years ( so hope I'm wrong ). I believe Orton was brought in for the potential draft pick, but in essence has got us back in this fight. I think his play, and whatever happens in these next 2 Games might change the brasses idea.
While I'm not a draftorbater I do like the idea of drafting a franchise qb. Like everyone else here. Will that happen? Dunno. Gonna be a fun end of the season. Go Buffalo!

The Orton thing

It's the best QB play we've seen in awhile, but that's not saying much.
I'm okay with Orton at QB, but I realize it's mostly because I've seen such shitty QB play here for the past few years. When you're eating ramen noodles every day then microwave pizza seems like gourmet fare. Thing is, you'll get tired of Microwave pizza pretty quick too and then we'll all be back to bitching about drafting a QBOTF.

Kyle Orton struggles in a low point for Broncos vs. Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kyle Orton threw high, he threw low, he threw under duress, but mostly he threw incomplete.

In what was his most inaccurate game as the Broncos' quarterback, Orton completed only 9-of-28 passes Sunday in a 10-6 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

There were games this season when Orton threw for 476 yards, 370 yards and 347 yards, and it wasn't enough as the Broncos still lost.

Finally, the defense holds an opponent to 10 points, and Orton throws his first clunker of the season. With the Broncos, it's always something.

He's very inconsistent.

As far as having great weapons in KC, people need to get a grip. Bowe can be invisible just as many times as he makes a great catch. Breaston is a good slot receiver, and Baldwin is still a complete unknown.

Orton will work for now. ANYTHING to get rid of Cassel and get an NFL caliber QB on the field. Like everyone else, I'm not confident he is the long term answer and would like to see us draft a QB. But you never know, Orton might just figure it all out and start beasting.

One of his main knocks in Denver was he could drive it up and down the field but couldn't stick it in the end zone. We saw that on Sunday. But the play calling was ass, so it's not all on him. If he can figure out the red zone with big physical receivers like Bowe, Baldwin, and even Pope, he might turn out ok.

The only thing I will say in Orton's defense:

He never had a running game AND a defense in Denver.

The Broncos were 18th in rushing and 7th in defense his first year.

His second year they were 26th in rushing and 32nd in defense.

In KC he will most likely have a top 10 running game and top 15 defense next season.

Bowe hasnt been invisible for awhile, Breaston is solid and Baldwin has shown plenty of potential this year in a handful of games.

Not saying Orton is savior, but with more time to work with our team, getting our injured stars back next year, and another solid draft, this is definately a playoff team in 12.

Hard to see Orton in KC next year. I think we can all agree don't sign him to a long term, big $$ deal. But I think Kyle is going to get an opportunity to sign a long term deal somewhere. He's only 29.

We just need to get that 1st round QB and play him so it doesn't matter what happens with Cassel or Orton.

Giving away draft picks to move up when you still have holes to fill for a QB who might be Ryan Leaf, David Carr, etc etc is stupid.

If we had the Oline fixed, a nose tackle, ILB, another pass rusher and a RB to complement Charles. Sure give all our picks to get one of the top 2 QBs....but we don't.

Sign Orton to a 2-3 year deal and keep looking for the next Tom Brady later in draft. Orton is still young and seems to still be improving. He will make us a playoff caliber team at the worst and who knows he might be a Gannon or Simms type QB and get to a superbowl.

Bowe drops a lot of crucial balls.
Breaston has been pretty good.
Baldwin is still unknown. I've seen him "Almost" make some circus catches, but almost doesn't get you anywhere.

I like Orton better than Cassel, but if the Chiefs sign Orton they're probably going to be sinking enough money into the deal to make it hard not to start Orton for at least a couple of years (just like with Cassel two years ago when he signed his K). That makes drafting an early round QB prospect less likely, IMO.

So I'm OK with signing Orton, but I'd rather see them draft a 1st round QB and keep Cassel to start until the new guy (or Stanzi) is ready.

Even if he did have a #1 WR, he has a history of letting pressure bring out the worst in him.

It doesn't matter if you have 4 HOF WRs running around out there, if you shit your pants under pressure you're fucked.

Now, maybe our playmakers + defense might reduce the amount of pressure situations he has to face. But at some point the D is probably going to falter, probably against a superior QB in the playoffs...so then you wonder if Orton can respond.

Like the pressure of scoring to put us back on top after GB went up?
Or like the pressure to knock the game out of reach with timely throws at the end in his first game ever with less than 2 weeks of preparation with a new team?

I re-watched the DirecTV 30 minute condensed game and Kyle Orton's performance was the first time since Trent Green that we've had a quarterback who could read the defense and make the throw. I don't know how good Orton can be, but he reminded me of Trent Green even more the second time I watched the game. He's certainly good enough to be our starter while we groom an early pick.

Kyle Orton is on a completely different level than Matt Cassel.

The Chiefs will probably sign Orton as well. I could see them keeping both Cassel and Orton and drafting an offensive lineman in the first round. Then they are going to let Cassel and Orton compete for the starting QB job. That seems to be the way the Chiefs operate. I hope I'm wrong.

Giving away draft picks to move up when you still have holes to fill for a QB who might be Ryan Leaf, David Carr, etc etc is stupid.

If we had the Oline fixed, a nose tackle, ILB, another pass rusher and a RB to complement Charles. Sure give all our picks to get one of the top 2 QBs....but we don't.

Sign Orton to a 2-3 year deal and keep looking for the next Tom Brady later in draft. Orton is still young and seems to still be improving. He will make us a playoff caliber team at the worst and who knows he might be a Gannon or Simms type QB and get to a superbowl.

Orton is the kind of QB that is great one week just to flop the next. He is of the inconsistent variety of QB. That is recipe for 8-8 season or 10-6 season & getting our ass kicked yet again in the playoffs. That's what we get. Oh boy & the joy of making the playoffs for the true fans just makes em happy.

I can't believe how much people make of one good game.

You need a QB that can carry the team into the playoffs. The Falcons had something like 8 playoff appearances in 40 years. They draft Ryan and now they are in every year and have a decent chance of winning some games.

KC NEEDS TO DESPERATELY DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO DRAFT A POTENTIAL FRANCHISE QB AND PLAY THE KID. WORRY ABOUT ORTON, CASSEL, HASSELBACK, MCNABB OR WHOEVER ELSE AFTER YOU DRAFT THE QBOTF.

Interim coach Romeo Crennel said Kyle Orton should be the Chiefs 2012 starter if he wins the final two games.
There's a ton of uncertainty in Kansas City, so Crennel is getting way ahead of himself here. He's no lock to get the head coaching job, Orton is an impending free agent and Matt Cassel is under contract through 2014. Still, Orton may truly be a better option than Cassel. The Chiefs would be foolish not to at least consider using him as a "bridge" to a rookie quarterback they might draft in April.

This, over and over and over and over.

How many more times do we need to get excited over some scrub QB that we picked up from some other team?

It's almost Pavlonian how Chiefs' fans respond to one good game from scrub QBs and the fact that this team has NEVER drafted and developed its own franchise QB goes right out the window.

The biggest hole on this team is and almost always has been our QB. Instead of picking up retreads and late round QB's why don't we do what it takes to get a first round caliber QB even if it means trading up for. I swear some people won't trade up for a QB because he might be a Ryan Leaf, but would rather keep a pick that could turn into a Trezelle Jenkins. Any player can bust. ANY! There is no guarantee that the picks we keep instead of giving up for a QB will pan out either. This team has holes and always will as all teams do (look at GB and NE).

We can get great players at every position but QB in FA. No more hoping for a late round gem hoping he becomes the next Tom Brady. Wake up! Tom Brady was a once in a lifetime (not generation, lifetime) QB. Now why are NE and GB considered elite in spite of their holes? Just look at who they have under center to answer that question. Orton is serviceable, but if he were what you think he is, he wouldn't be with us. Chicago gave up alot PLUS Orton just to get Cutler. Denver benched him and eventually cut him for a QB many think is a glorified HB. When he was a FA, only three teams put in a waiver request for him, and one was us. That is 3 out of 32 teams. There are more teams then that who could use a QB, yet they passed on him.

Is he better than Cassel? Sure, but Cassel should not be the litmus test used to determine whether a QB is good or not. I am all for resigning Orton for at least a year and trading up for a QB (unless that QB is Luck) and letting our first rounder riding the pine for a year, but I do not think Orton is a guy who can take us to the promised land. I know he fooled some people by putting up a whopping 19 points against the worst defense in football, but he is on team three for a reason.

I agree with most of this. I don't like the idea of giving away picks to move up for anyone. We have no idea how they will play in the NFL. Plus, we still have some holes to fill. I'd say keep Orton (Cassel and Palko exit stage left) and go BPA in the draft. If it's a QB in the first, great, if not find one later. Then next year roll with Orton while Stanzi and QBX sit and watch. In two years, QB comp between QBX and Stanzi and we roll with the winner.

It's been obvious to me that Cassel doesn't read a defense quickly enough and/or stays with one receiver too long. People were talking about the offensive line being so horrible after that Miami debacle. But I contend that a lot of that you can blame on the QB play (due to poor read/recognition skills) and not the offensive line.

OK he has the same stats avg as Cassle. BS! My dad and I argue about the Cheifs as if we're Pioli and Haley. I told him 3 weeeks ago, "dude. We finally have our QB." He looked at me like I was crazy and borderline ignored me.

I tried explaining to him we finaly have a qb that can make all of the throws. All he could muster up was he wasn't shit in Denve and he wasn Shit in Chicago. I told him he had good stats lat yar and turned Brandn Lloyd into NFLs #1 wr last year. He wasn't buying it but my point was valid.

I further went to explain that now Orton had something he's NEVER had as far as weapons. Now he has 2 BIG WRs as well as a WR that will stretch the field. Add JC and Moeki coming back next year and I think we can be a top 5 offense with Orton.

I just don't understand why people think he's a fluke ad try to compare him to Cassle when he's HEAD AND SHOULDERS above Cassel in EVERY category. I'll go so far as to say we don't need to draft qb this year if we sign Orton... I'm als thinking with Berry coming back and a O tackle and another stud LB to complement DJ, we're poised for a SUPERBOWL RUN!

The only thing I will say in Orton's defense:

He never had a running game AND a defense in Denver.

The Broncos were 18th in rushing and 7th in defense his first year.

His second year they were 26th in rushing and 32nd in defense.

In KC he will most likely have a top 10 running game and top 15 defense next season.

A top 10 defense and a mediocre running game with a legitimate #1 receiver should be more than enough for any quality QB to make a run, not finish 8-8.

I am not ready to crown Orton as the QBOTF after just one game, but I don't think you can blame him for the red zone issues against GB. On the first, he threw the out pattern in a perfect spot, IMO to the receiver (McClain?). On the second one where they came away with no points, I would blame the play calling and/or execution of the blockers. Keep in mind that one was all running.

Both McDaniels and Pioli felt Cassel was a franchise. Nobody has any idea if they still feel that way.

People keep talking about Pioli being too stubborn to move on from players, but where is the proof? He's parted ways pretty quickly with early draft picks like Magee. He hasn't forced coaches to keep free agent acquisitions that they didn't want - he must have brought in at least 8 WRs in 3 years.

The issue with Orton has always been consistency. He can make all the throws, spreads the ball well and has good leadership qualities on the field. The problem sometimes he just turns stoopid. While he has had good former QB coaches as Head Coaches (McBust) he has never had a good QB coach and good receivers, which the Chiefs have both. If he can develop some consistency I believe Orton will be a very good QB.

If the BPA is a WR do you draft him?
If the BPA is a SS do you draft him?
If the BPA is a CB do you draft him (assuming Carr is re-signed)?

Good point, I'll go BPA in a position of need. I'm not drafting any of those that you put up, not in the first. If it's a QB then great. I'm just not up for throwing eight picks for one player. Shit, I still want to see what Stanzi has.

If we want a new face of franchise trade up get QB sign orton and let the fun begin.

If not then trade down draft the one thing this D needs a ILB by DJ the thumper to shut down runs up the middle.

The Orton thing

It's the best QB play we've seen in awhile, but that's not saying much.
I'm okay with Orton at QB, but I realize it's mostly because I've seen such shitty QB play here for the past few years. When you're eating ramen noodles every day then microwave pizza seems like gourmet fare. Thing is, you'll get tired of Microwave pizza pretty quick too and then we'll all be back to bitching about drafting a QBOTF.

Orton had a really good game against Green Bay by anybody's standards.

The only thing I will say in Orton's defense:

He never had a running game AND a defense in Denver.

The Broncos were 18th in rushing and 7th in defense his first year.

His second year they were 26th in rushing and 32nd in defense.

In KC he will most likely have a top 10 running game and top 15 defense next season.

FAIL! We don`t want of a QB who needs a good running game and a good defense to perform. We want one of those QBs that can actually do a good job without a running game and a stout defense. That`s why we have to trade up to get that top QB prospect that might be one of those QBs.

If the Chiefs win out, that puts them in a position to not draft a quarterback.

All those guys, Luck, Griffin III, and Barkley are going top 10.

The only guy that may be available is Tannehill.

I don't see the Chiefs trading up to try and get either Luck, Barkley, or Griffin III. It's just gonna involve too much compensation. Do they go with Tannehill if he falls to them? I don't know.

But one thing is for certain, and I may get bashed for saying this, they could use an offensive lineman. Wiegmann is old, Lilja could be replaced, Richardson needs to be shown the door because we all know he ain't even adequate enough.

Realistically, you have to think Oline. Its the reality and the nature of how things may be played out for this franchise. I think there will be some Olineman available when the Chiefs pick.

I re-watched the DirecTV 30 minute condensed game and Kyle Orton's performance was the first time since Trent Green that we've had a quarterback who could read the defense and make the throw. I don't know how good Orton can be, but he reminded me of Trent Green even more the second time I watched the game. He's certainly good enough to be our starter while we groom an early pick.

Kyle Orton is on a completely different level than Matt Cassel.

I couldn't agree more. I really think Orton could put up better numbers than ever, with the weapons we have and if everyone is healthy next year. Something he has never had.

I was thinking something similar. When the Chiefs are deciding whether to continue with Cassel or try to sign Orton, they're facing a similar dilemma as the one Carl Peterson faced with Gannon and Grbac. Gannon's contract was up so financially it made more sense to retain Grbac and let Gannon go just like it would be cheaper to keep Cassel than switch to Orton now. Going for the dollar-wise option hurt last time around.

I tried explaining to him we finaly have a qb that can make all of the throws. All he could muster up was he wasn't shit in Denve and he wasn Shit in Chicago. I told him he had good stats lat yar and turned Brandn Lloyd into NFLs #1 wr last year. He wasn't buying it but my point was valid.

I further went to explain that now Orton had something he's NEVER had as far as weapons. Now he has 2 BIG WRs as well as a WR that will stretch the field. Add JC and Moeki coming back next year and I think we can be a top 5 offense with Orton.

I just don't understand why people think he's a fluke ad try to compare him to Cassle when he's HEAD AND SHOULDERS above Cassel in EVERY category. I'll go so far as to say we don't need to draft qb this year if we sign Orton...

Did Trent Dilfer win the Super Bowl, or did the Ravens?

Jake Delhomme, Rex Grossman...

you can get to the Super Bowl with a terrible QB...

Peyton Manning is a bit different with the Colts. Indeed, clearly, the data is "in" on that score...

Giving away draft picks to move up when you still have holes to fill for a QB who might be Ryan Leaf, David Carr, etc etc is stupid.

If we had the Oline fixed, a nose tackle, ILB, another pass rusher and a RB to complement Charles. Sure give all our picks to get one of the top 2 QBs....but we don't.

Sign Orton to a 2-3 year deal and keep looking for the next Tom Brady later in draft. Orton is still young and seems to still be improving. He will make us a playoff caliber team at the worst and who knows he might be a Gannon or Simms type QB and get to a superbowl.

I agree with most of this. I don't like the idea of giving away picks to move up for anyone. We have no idea how they will play in the NFL. Plus, we still have some holes to fill. I'd say keep Orton (Cassel and Palko exit stage left) and go BPA in the draft. If it's a QB in the first, great, if not find one later. Then next year roll with Orton while Stanzi and QBX sit and watch. In two years, QB comp between QBX and Stanzi and we roll with the winner.

Here are some more gems

Orton can stay in KC as long as he wants, IMO. Remember this... he is playing with a fucked up throwing hand!

I was very impressed with him. Great game. It is only ONE game, but I was NEVER this encouraged with Casshole.

If Orton plays out the rest of the season like he did today, he deserves the starting job hands down with no concern for "competition". I wasn't an Orton supporter but after not having a real quarterback in this offense since Trent Green, the potential of this team looks completely different with him in there. I believe a win like this could absolutely bond players with coach, with quarterback. If he continues like he did today, we should not draft a QB first round, he shouldn't have to look over his shoulder. The job should be completely his. If a highly ranked qb falls to a lower round, that's different.

Not me. I said he was as good as Carson Palmer and WAY cheaper. I'll go ahead and say we no longer need to think QB in the draft.

I agree. He folds under pressure. That's not surprising. I don't think he has any kind of superior decision making or escapability either. To his credit, he uses his blocks well and slides around the pocket with ease. He also makes quick reads and gets rid of the ball efficiently. Nobody is going to mistake Orton for a superstar QB but he's better than anybody the Chiefs have had in years. I would even go so far as to say he's better than Trent Green.

In a nutshell, I won't cry myself to sleep if the Chiefs keep Orton for 2012. He's not nearly as good as he looked vs. the Packers but he's nowhere near as bad as he's looked at times wearing a bear or horse on his helmet.

At least PART of the "same stats as Cassel" has to do with the way he'd been utilized.

In Chicago, after they elevated him to starter, the coaches allowed Kyle a great deal of leeway in his on-field decision-making. He would often audible out of a pass play and into a run - even at the LoS - if that were the best play for the TEAM. He didn't give a rat's ass about puffing up his stats, he wanted his team to win. If that meant only throwing 10 passes in a game and running it the rest of the time, that's what happened. Worked fairly well too - KO was 21-12 (.636) as a starter in Chicago.

In Denver, he ran into the opposite situation. The HC (McDumbass) was obsessively controlling with an ego that demanded EVERYTHING be done his way, no deviations allowed. The play that was sent in had better be the play that was run, regardless of the actual situation on the field. That eventually ended up with the entire Offense being thrown onto Orton's arm. Kyle has a good QB skillset, but few QBs could carry a team like Denver without ANY help from the Defense, ST or run game.

I tried explaining to him we finaly have a qb that can make all of the throws. All he could muster up was he wasn't shit in Denve and he wasn Shit in Chicago. I told him he had good stats lat yar and turned Brandn Lloyd into NFLs #1 wr last year. He wasn't buying it but my point was valid.
Not to mention that Brandon Marshall has dropped off the face of the Earth after moving to Miami. BM set NFL records with Kyle throwing to him.

I further went to explain that now Orton had something he's NEVER had as far as weapons. Now he has 2 BIG WRs as well as a WR that will stretch the field. Add JC and Moeki coming back next year and I think we can be a top 5 offense with Orton.
I've followed Orton's entire pro career. I have NEVER seen an entire group of WRs fight so hard to catch and advance the ball as they were doing for Kyle in the Green Bay game. They sure seemed to appreciate the fact that Orton was getting the ball to them and giving them the opportunity to do something with it.

I just don't understand why people think he's a fluke ad try to compare him to Cassle when he's HEAD AND SHOULDERS above Cassel in EVERY category. I'll go so far as to say we don't need to draft qb this year if we sign Orton... I'm als thinking with Berry coming back and a O tackle and another stud LB to complement DJ, we're poised for a SUPERBOWL RUN!
Because Orton was tagged as a "game-manager" in his rookie year playing for Chicago. He had little support from the FO who were still touting Rex Grossman as the QBotF for the Bears and insisted that Kyle was simply filling in.

So, the perception was established of KO simply being "adequate" but you can do better. Sure you can. There's another Peyton Manning or Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers or Drew Brees out there. Somewhere. Maybe. But those guys are very few and very far between. And not always recognized as "THE GUY." Out of that group, only P. Manning was seen that way going into the draft. And at the time, there was a great debate as to whether Peyton or RYAN LEAF was the better pro prospect. It's virtually impossible to KNOW who's going to be great and who's going to be a bust.

A team can do very well with a QB that simply "adequate." The Giants won a Super Bowl with Eli Manning. The Ravens did it with Trent Difler. Since then they've made the post-season 3 consecutive years with Joe Flacco. The Jets have gone to the AFC title game repeatedly with Mark Sanchez. The Bears went to the Super Bowl with Rex Grossman under center. The 49ers have clinched the NFC West with Alex Smith.

Yet the Cardinals are floundering with Kevin Kolb. The Chargers are repeatedly one-and-done in the playoffs with Phillip Rivers. The Eagles are falling apart with Mike Vick. The Cowboys can't get anywhere with Tony Romo.

You can keep spinning your wheels thrashing about in a vain search for the next "great" QB and keep your team in a constant state of self-destructive chaos. Or you can go with a "good" or "adequate" QB and build a winning team...

At least PART of the "same stats as Cassel" has to do with the way he'd been utilized.

In Chicago, after they elevated him to starter, the coaches allowed Kyle a great deal of leeway in his on-field decision-making. He would often audible out of a pass play and into a run - even at the LoS - if that were the best play for the TEAM. He didn't give a rat's ass about puffing up his stats, he wanted his team to win. If that meant only throwing 10 passes in a game and running it the rest of the time, that's what happened. Worked fairly well too - KO was 21-12 (.636) as a starter in Chicago.

In Denver, he ran into the opposite situation. The HC (McDumbass) was obsessively controlling with an ego that demanded EVERYTHING be done his way, no deviations allowed. The play that was sent in had better be the play that was run, regardless of the actual situation on the field. That eventually ended up with the entire Offense being thrown onto Orton's arm. Kyle has a good QB skillset, but few QBs could carry a team like Denver without ANY help from the Defense, ST or run game.

Not claiming that KO is great. In fact, I think that I characterized him as "good."

My point is that even just "good" is better than most people realize. And it helps the rest of the team to perform better.

BTW, B-Marsh's TD total for the last 2 years combined in Miami is 8. He had 10 in a single season with KO throwing to him. Marshall was expected to tank in Denver after the great Jay Cutler left. Instead he set an NFL record for most receptions in a single game (20), was chosen as AFC Offensive Player of the Week and went to a 2nd consecutive Pro Bowl. That was also his last 100 catch season. That was Orton helping Marshall to be as good as he could be.

KYLE ORTON IS THE ANSWER....for now and probably for the next year or two IF he signs with us. However, why would he sign with us if we keep Cassel and he has other offers to be the starter? Im sure KO doesnt want to go thru what he did in Denver again.

I hope the FO is smart enough to trade MC and sign KO and then draft the best QB possible, whether thats trade up (maybe MC could be part of a trade up situation) or find a gem late in the 1st round or 2nd round.

All I know is when I was watching the game on sunday, I held my breath when KO threw the ball and then quickly realized that he could actually throw the ball-far sometimes. We havent had a QB who could throw the ball--far--since TG. We havent really looked like a real football team all year until Sunday. KO is part of the reason.

I don't know about KO being "the" answer, but he can certainly be "an" answer. A good enough answer to help the Chiefs win - especially in a weak division like the AFC West.

I hope the FO is smart enough to trade MC and sign KO and then draft the best QB possible, whether thats trade up (maybe MC could be part of a trade up situation) or find a gem late in the 1st round or 2nd round.
KO wants to be a starter, not a fill-in or a bridge or a mentor. He won't want to play for a team that's actively looking for his replacement.

If Cassel stays, no matter how much better Kyle might play, MC's contract will probably block him being bench for Orton.

If a QB is drafted in the 1st or 2nd round, fan pressure will quickly build to "give him a chance" just like it did in Denver with Tebow. Look at how many posters on this board are insisting on that for Stanzi - a 5th rounder who should probably never make it off the practice squad.

All I know is when I was watching the game on sunday, I held my breath when KO threw the ball and then quickly realized that he could actually throw the ball-far sometimes. We havent had a QB who could throw the ball--far--since TG. We havent really looked like a real football team all year until Sunday. KO is part of the reason.
Yeah, KO has enough of an arm to make all the NFL throws, anywhere on the field. If he's given adequate protection, he can pick apart a Secondary. Good field vision, can go thru his progressions quickly, above average decision-making skills and solid mechanics that enable him to get rid of the ball in a hurry.

Sorry, but I don't rate Cassel as high as "adequate." Or Thigpen. Or Huard. Trent Green was the last KC QB even in that range.

Looking back thru the Chiefs draft history back to 1960, the only QBs who's names I recognize are Brody Croyle and Steve Fuller. Fuller was a good backup for Jim McMahon on the Super Bowl Bears of the 80s. That's the absolute best they've ever done at drafting the QB position.

Made of weed? Seriously, Cassel had a magical season last year. If he had the o line and run game Green had, we'd of beat Baltimore last year in the playoffs.

Yep, Jamaal Charles is worth 7 points a game to this offense and Cassel isn't worth shit.

in Cassel's "magical season" he averaged 200 yards per game, completed only 58% of his passes, barely threw for 3000 yards and helmed the 30th rated passing attack in the league...


meanwhile Charles had the second highest yards per carry in nfl history...

Cassel is a joke

Yes he is worth something. And that value is negative. He's below replacement level as Orton made abundantly clear.

Well yes, by Cassel standards that is a "magical" season.

To every other QB worth thier salt that's a piss poor season...

I honestly love threads like this, because it identifies people that I know I shouldn't waste my time debating with. I know Denny is 100% happy with retread QBs and he is afraid to take a chance drafting a young QB because he's happy with the last 40 years.

I know wutamess is going to be a knee-jerk reaction kid. 1 good game by Cutler (no TD passes and stalling in the redzone) outweighs several years of really good QB play by Green. No point debating anything.

When did we acquire Cutler?
