There isn't one other guy that could become a franchise QB capable of winning multiple playoff games?
If there is that guy, and we are able to get him without using the first overall pick, then that changes the situation. That's all I am saying.
I would rather have Jarvis Jones AND a franchise QB than just a franchise QB. Now, maybe that's ****ing impossible and there is no earthly way you are going to land a top flight QB without taking one with the first overall pick. Maybe.
But we don't know that yet, so it's silly to be so declarative at this point. It's just silly.
I don't believe this is a weak QB class, not the way the talking heads do. But if that becomes the rhetoric, then the Chiefs might be able to take advantage of it.
Two years ago I wanted Kaepernick. Last year I wanted WIlson (once the RG3 trade possibility was gone). This year I want Geno.
Let's just say that we can get Geno in the 2nd round. Let's say he struggles at the Combine. He tests positive for marijuana. He falls and we draft him at 33rd overall.
Are you going to freak out because we didn't take a QB at #1?
The Chiefs are not drafing Jarvis with the #1 pick then getting Geno or Wilson in the 2nd round. Are you ****ing high?
