Poilian says no QB worthy of #1. Chiefs can find one later

Former Colts GM Polian says Chiefs can find a QB in the draft

— In Bill Polian’s long career as an NFL general manager, his team had the number-one pick in the draft just once. That was in 1998, when he was with Indianapolis, and the Colts that year selected a quarterback, Peyton Manning.


That worked out well for Polian and the Colts. But Polian said he doesn’t think the Chiefs should draft a quarterback with this year’s first pick, even though they would like an upgrade over Matt Cassel. Like many assessing this year’s draft, Polian said there’s not a quarterback worthy of being the number-one selection.

“Just because there’s not a quarterback that everybody now doesn’t think is worth the number-one pick doesn’t mean you can’t get a quarterback,” Polian said. “Nobody thought Russell Wilson was worth a third-round pick except a couple of us. He turned out to be a pretty good quarterback.

“You always go for the best player. It’s foolish to go for need and (Chiefs coach Andy Reid) won’t do that.”

While Reid coached in Philadelphia, the Eagles at least a couple of times found quarterbacks after the first round who eventually became starters, including Kevin Kolb and Nick Foles.

“Nobody develops quarterbacks better than Andy Reid,” Polian said. “So rest assured, you’ve got the right guy. Whatever decision he makes will be the right one. He’ll find a quarterback. It doesn’t need to be the first guy in the draft.”
Other than to stay away from quarterbacks, Polian had no advice for the Chiefs with the first pick.

“Ask Andy,” he said. “They know their personnel far better than I do and they know what they need.”

Now more than ever I hope Andy takes QB #1 overall just to shut Poilian up.

He's horrible on ESPN BTW. It's painful.

We'll be picking Tyler Wison in Rd2.

Sorry guys.

oh...and Carl Peterson likes the Reid hire and hates rookie QBs. Why does KC media need to keep asking for his opinion????????





Peterson likes Reid hire

Carl Peterson still attends the NFL Scouting Combine, but as the chairman of USA Football and no longer as the general manager of the Chiefs.

“I’m not here to see guys run 40-yard dashes in their underwear,” he said.
Instead, Peterson is at the Combine promoting safety issues for USA Football, which promotes the game on the amateur and youth levels.

Peterson, now four years removed from the Chiefs, still follows the issues. He said he likes the hire of Reid.

“I articulated that to Clark Hunt,” Peterson said. “He knows what he’s doing. He’s a winning football coach. I think it’s a terrific addition, as I do also (general manager) John Dorsey.”

A major dilemma for Reid and Dorsey is to find a quarterback for the Chiefs. There are no star quarterbacks available as Joe Montana was when Peterson and the Chiefs traded for him in 1993. The draft doesn’t hold any can’t-miss quarterback prospects.

“It was always my philosophy to get the seasoned veteran quarterback who had been successful and been through it before,” Peterson said. “Any time you draft a quarterback, he’s got a heck of a learning curve to get through, depending where you pick and who’s available. But I wouldn’t be surprised if Andy did that.”

As for what the Chiefs should do with their first-round pick, the first in the draft, Peterson said he would leave that to Reid and Dorsey.

“That’s not my concern anymore,” Peterson said. “I’ll tell you what they ought to do: Take the best player available, the best player you have rated regardless of position.
“It certainly is an important pick.

The first-round draft choices are always important, but the higher you pick the more important it is. You don’t want to make a mistake because it does reflect on the future of the franchise. A lot of pressure there, but I think Andy and John will get it done.”

Sorry? JFC getting Wilson at 34 would be a ****ing steal of massive proportions.

So you think there will be 5/6 QBs taken in rd 1 ?

Wilson is the 6th rated QB.

KC Tattoo 02-22-2013 08:50 AM

I'm tired of people saying we shouldn't take a QB with our first :#


And **** you Carl Peterson you never would have drafted us a QBotf with a first round pick you ****ing POS.

Reaper16 02-22-2013 08:50 AM

Carl still can't wrap his head around why he didn't win a championship. Haha.

Also, its pathetic watching GMs and ex-GMs across the league try to take some measure of retroactive credit for Russell Wilson. "Oh yeah, we loved the guy. Loved his interview." Pathetic.

KC_Lee 02-22-2013 08:54 AM

So is there some sort of cosmic insult that will occur if the Chiefs take a QB with the first overall pick? With the rookie pay scale in place the chance of a first round pick handcuffing a team from a salary cap perspective is reduced so why not take a QB?

Please explain to me the term worthy as it relates to the Chiefs and a QB at #1 overall.

It proves that measurables are still king. At least when it comes to the 1st round prospects.

I keep seeing this and I keep thinking "who has he REALLY developed"?

Kevin Kolb played so good they traded him. He resurrected Vick for all of 1 year. Foles has yet to really prove anything. He's always had ADEQUATE QB play.

But the ONLY ELITE QB he's ever coached is the guy he picked #2 overall.

Don't get me wrong, I like Andy Reid. A LOT actually.

But this idea that he's a QB guru is WAY overblown.

Ummmm. I don't think this is true. I've seen him as high as 1, as low as 4. And yes, I do think 4 QBs get drafted in the 1st round.
