Len Dawson wasn't drafted by the Texans before he originally signed with them in the 60's and you don't hear anyone complaining about that. All they remember is he took the Chiefs to their only two SB appearances in franchise history.

Do we all want the Chiefs to draft and develop their own QB? Sure we do. I get it. But if we get someone else young and he IS successful, and by successful I mean SB wins. I don't really care.
That shit doesn't ****ing happen. Hooray for Dawson and thank God the Chiefs got at least one Super Bowl under him, but that was in 1970. Football was a different game.

Brett Favre was the last true backup from another team to be "developed" as a starter by another team trading for him. That means teams that adopt that strategy- Houston with Schaub, Chiefs with Cassel, Cardinals with Kolb, etc. are going against history.

There's a reason why backup QBs are backup QBs. It does little good to expect even the best young ones to do shit.

So yes, it's a cop out. It's a waste of ****ing time. "I don't care where the Chiefs get a QB as long as they get one who wins" is ****ing stupid because you DO care if the Chiefs waste resources on another team's backup. It's a dumb trade 99.9% of the time. And if you don't care about that, then you're a blind homer.
