Listening to 810 podcast today they had Kevin Harlan on and he explained why they took blackledge instead of Marino. He said during Marino's workout with kc before the draft Marino wasn't throwing the ball well and was cussing. Then blackledge came in good demeanor and holy guy and did well. :facepalm: is in order after hearing that

Yeah - I've heard that story about how most the staff was religious at that time and Marino wasn't part of the right 53. But it's not like Marino would have been any good in KC. This team has NEVER been able to develop a QB. It's not like Blackledge was a horrible project, this team has the ability to kill any QB career.

If only we could go back in time and find out.

Really, if the Chiefs were to move away I wouldn't even care. I already have a favorite team to embarrass me every year, who needs a second.

Go Jayhawks.

I heard it was because Marino blew off KC FO guys at a pre-arranged dinner prior to the draft. This was on one of the espn top ten count list shows.

It's not like we were the only team to whiff on Marino. He was drafted second to last in that round. I recall there being a lot of questions about him.

Sorry Phobia, but this statement has bugged me for years. They have tried once in 40 years to develop a first round QB. Then we drafted a second rounder in Matt Blundin but his chance to shine they had him throw the ball four times and gave up on him and went with veteran QB such as Joe Montana. From then on we drafted a couple late rounders that never got to see action iirc untill we drafted Brodie Croyle in the 3rd round and he was made of glass. So I would argue that it's not that they have NEVER been a ble to develop a draft pick QB it's that they never TRIED but twice to develop a draft pick quarterback. The statement never been able to develop is miss leading in that it suggest we have tried. It's flustraiting to me we never tried.

From the Blackledge era Carl Peterson new fans didn't want to fail again drafting a QB to develop and he was right.

I don't see that they even work on developing Ricky Stanzi that he is left to learn on his own from team meetings is the only clue he gets. It's not like they put him in as the second string to get the extra reps needed for developing. They promoted Quinn only to leave Cassell as back up so they aren't developing shit still.

I might be in the minority on this one, but it does not bother me that we did not get Marino. He might have done well for us, but no one will ever know for sure. What we do know is that he threw for a ton of yards and TDs but only made the SB once and that was in his rookie year. No guarantee he would have done anything special for us. But regardless this team needs to draft a QB high this time and invest whatever it takes to develop him.

Great QB's are a result of great play combined with a coach that knows how to use his ability.

The only coaching staff that I would trust with a rookie QB would have been Vermeil's.

I can't believe this is something that people can get worried about anymore.

Damn near everybody who was involved in that decision has to be retired or dead. Couldn't we find something a little more relevant to worry about?

It wasn't just Marino they passed on. Jim Kelly, Tony Eason and Ken O Brien. The latter two weren't great, but still had better careers than Blackledge ever did.

This is what really happened. Marino had an incredible JR season. His SR season was such a drop off that it scared everybody off. Plus he had some knee injuries that contributed to drop off in stats. That all played a part.

King Carl didn't come around till five years later.

It is a well known fact around here that Carl snuck into the Chiefs war room and drafted Blackledge.

I knew the day that Carl drafted Blackledge he was going to suck. Knew it...

But I heard the reason KC passed on Marino was because when Blackledge worked out for KC, he tore his sleeves off and it really impressed Carl.
