I think the Chiefs will win because Andy Reid has a long history of doing it.
And in particular, he has a long history of finding lesser known QB's that he plugs into his system to significant success. So much so, that he sells them off to the highest bidder. I love that. That plays in our favor.
It also tips the scales toward taking BPA, not QB with our #1. And if that doesn't work out this year, the odds are that in a few years, it will work out.
If AR wants Alex Smith over Geno Smith, then I'd be pretty excited to have Alex Smith playing in this system under this coach.
Now if AR wants Geno Smith over all other options, then I'll be just as excited to have him playing in this system under this coach.
Putting much stock into what fans want is just silly.
