I think it's a blue collar town stigma that gets attached to them. You never see Miami or San Diego selecting fatties in these mock drafts. GOD ****ING KNOWS Arizona needs offensive line help way the **** more than we do. But who is the team that consistently gets to draft the QB in these scenarios? That's right. Arizona. Not KC. Arizona desperately needs a QB as well. But in this supposedly terrible lineup of QBs this draft, none of them are too high for 8th overall. But at 1 overall? CAN'T DO THAT TAKE THE VALUE PICK!
Well yeah, if the Chiefs ever get good, who will the national media make fun of. In the north east, they think we're all country bumkins simply there to amuse them. You should hear some of the comments I get when I tell one of them that I'm from Kansas. If I hear "well, you're not in Kansas anymore" one more time I may have to kick someone in the nuts
