Now some Chiefs fans want to use a 1st and a THIRD round pick (and a high one at that) to get our franchise guy and back up.

This shit has to end somewhere, guys. They're BACKUPS for ****'s sake
This. The benefit they got was an exception, not a norm.

Cardinals have already tried the Eagles back-up route.

I could live with that.

If Foles is with the Chiefs, it's an indication that Reid thinks highly of him and will give him a solid chance to start. I don't think Reid would want him as a back up. I think he may have seen something in the kid during his starts last year.

If the Chiefs do something like this, they better get Foles, the Eagles' 2nd pick this year (540 points) and a conditional 2nd or 3rd next year (and maybe even a later round pick this year) or they are leaving too much value on the table.
Technically true. But realistically they won't get that much. I hear draft charts are no longer the drafting bible.

Posting from my phone or I would post entire article.
They are trying to increase his value. Just posturing. I think they want to trade him. He is simply not a Chip Kelly type QB.

If he doesn't fit the Chip Kelly system he's basically useless to them. That's a pretty good incentive to trade him.
