more realistic that Andy trades for Kevin Kobb and accumulates draft picks to stock the whole roster and then keeps his eye out for another franchise QB
AFTER he drafted McNabb #2 overall, which was a reach in my mind at the time because McNabb was awful had he not run for so many first downs & TD's in college. When he started playing under Reid, we heard how Reid coached McNabb hard to stop with the tuck and run. Reid made McNabb into a pocket passer, but it took 5 years before McNabb finally became a disciplined QB at this level under Reid's WCO system. Then, the accuracy began to show.
I've heard from more than one person Reid is not a guy that spends his time with draft boards and selections. Reid does his own board, discusses players with the staff and lets his GM do his thing. I'm sure he's going to do the same now.
The Chiefs need a guard, CB, WR and with Geno, they are good for 2013. It ain't gonna happen overnight. But to say Reid isn't going to go after a young QB #1 is just wrong. He did. He will again and Geno has more of those skills that Reid needs than McNabb ever had.
