I will agree with you 100% after the Chiefs draft a QB at #1 overall. That's when hardcore professional scouting trumps my hobby.
The issue of taking a QB isn't a matter of scouting. It's a matter of philosophy and principle.
I didn't see you giving John McCain or Mitt Romney a pass. I'm pretty sure you were just fine with saying, "McCain is no different than Bush, which hasn't done very well for the country." You didn't know that. You didn't know what McCain or Romney would be all about and yet you still assumed they would employ the same strategy that you railed against for the last 8 years.
The Chiefs are faced with doing what we've been doing for the past 30
years, not 8. We have the option of going with the strategy that got us into this mess, or we can switch up the strategy and go with something completely different for a bit, and see if that works.
Sorry to inject political dialogue into the main Lounge, but if that's all you understand, then that's the language I'll have to talk.
