did drafting Long or Joe Thomas save anyones job?
the idea that QBs are riskier than any other position is nonsense....
how can a fanbase that has never 'risked' drafting a QB be this afraid of the 'risk' of drafting a QB?
First off, I don't speak for this fan base.
Secondly, I was a proponent of Matt Ryan, Matt Stafford and Mark Sanchez, all because I DID see them play. I didn't watch Jimmy Clausen but somehow got slightly sucked onto the Clausen bandwagon, probably because I wanted to get ride of Cassel, who I thought sucked and wanted no part of from the beginning.
Never once have I stated that if the Chiefs identify who they believe would be their Franchise QB, that they should not take him. Not once.
But there's a crazy-ass fervor going around on this forum where people think the Chiefs should take a Smith at #1 overall, regardless of the fact that he hasn't been evaluated at the Combines, there's no consensus "Best" QB at this point and even if the QB grades out 10 points less than the highest rated player OR if he's rated similarly to the other "Top Prospects" (to which I say loosely).
It's as if people have ****ing lost their minds with this "Geno Smith! Geno Smith! Geno Smith!!!1111" nonsense before the guy has even been professionally evaluated.
