But you're right, whenever I talk to someone outside of here they suggest trading for Smith, Kaepernick, Tebow (lol), etc. It's like the idea of for once having a QB that Kansas City can call their own is long gone.
The standards just change, that's all.
Geno Smith is no more a risky QB prospect than Matt Stafford was. People forget how shitty Stafford could be against tough defenses in college. Threw picks. Lots of them. Forced shit all the goddamn time.
Yet in 2009 the tune was, "If only we had a better QB than Sanchez available! I would gladly have taken Stafford at #3!" Just like the year before it was, "No good QBs available. Matt Ryan sucks, and I'm glad Atlanta took him so we didn't have to. Dorsey is much better."
Now it's escalated to the point that fans are passing on Matt Staffords with the reason that he isn't Andrew Luck. "If only a good QB were available."
Good QBs are available every year. Just pick a ****ing guy. It's not a big ****ing deal if the guy busts. For ****'s sake.
