You're misinterpreting his words.
That is NOT what he said, at all. He said that footwork, throwing, etc. don't mean much to him. What DOES matter is that the QB elevates the play of those around him.
Again, he also said very clearly that he'll do what's best for the Chiefs, whether that's staying at #1 or moving back.
1st, no it's not BS. You've been entertaining the idea that the Chiefs may not draft a QB in the 1st since Reid has been hired. You've said so yourself.
2nd, coaches don't give coach speak on who they'll draft? Especially this early? Yes, they do **** around plenty. Especially in February. The fact that he stated, "hey i might stay, i might move down" means nothing in February. Nothing.
3rd, im not sure what you're arguing here. I stated that he isn't describing Alex Smith or Matt Flynn at all. Do you believe Alex Smith a is QB who elevates the play of those around him? Once again, from his description, he's not talking about any of the QB's n this F/A class.
