**** all this Brady Quinn bullshit.
That's great and all, but it's not like these mythical Hall of Fame first round quarterbacks are just out there for the taking. It's hit and miss, just like any player at any position.
And if Quinn is able to put everything together (and he's got a lot of the tools you want to see in a starting NFL quarterback), I don't think it makes much of a difference if he was or wasn't initially drafted by this franchise.
The guy got caught in a bad situation several times and hasn't been able to truly get a shot. He's got that opportunity now. If he doesn't, then so be it, but I don't think that there's a need to crucify him for simply being on the team and actually looking better than the other two guys on the roster at the QB position because he wasn't drafted by the Chiefs or he hasn't made multiple All-Pro teams.
He's still young, he's got the tools and he's finally going to get a legit chance. The Chiefs are a pretty solid team on both sides of the ball, and with the pick up of Hillis and Winston, they are going to be a very strong run team. He also has a very nice receiving corps to work with. It's not like he needs to carry the team by himself. He's comfortable in the Daboll system, etc.
It's the best chance the Chiefs have had of putting together a solid team in a long time. It's not Marty defense or Dick offense. It's a nice balanced team and Quinn fits what they do and has the tools to be quite effective for this system.
I'm not going to bitch too much when he takes Cassel's starting spot by the end of the preseason. It's an upgrade by any measure.
