The Chiefs are taking Geno #1; bank on it

Andy loves him some QBs. And KC has been a bottomless pit of QB suckage. While folks initially freaked out over the ASmith signing (me included), once they locked up Bowe and Albert, it seemed pretty clear that Geno will be the choice at #1.

People say you don't draft a QB #1 to sit on the bench, the first pick of the draft isn't a backup QB. They are right. They say ASmith will be the starter, especially given his compensation. They are right. Ummm, does that mean that Geno is being groomed for a year or two behind Alex? Not necessarily.

What? That is nonsense!

Only in the traditional sense.

I think Reid and Dorsey are thinking waaay outside the box on this one.

If (when) the Chiefs draft Geno, the whole idea of a "backup" QB will be shook up. "Backup" will be a matter of semantics. "Starting" will be a matter of semantics as well.

Reid and Dorsey both see the need for 2 "starting caliber" QBs on a team in today's NFL. San Fran proved beyond a shadow of a doubt last year that it really pays to have 2 QBs on your team who can start for you.

If one "starting caliber" QB goes down, you have another "starting caliber" QB ready to be plugged in and the team doesn't miss a beat.

It has been repeated ad nauseum on this board that the QB is the most important position in all of football. When you have an offense that is predicated on throwing the football 40+ times a game, you can't afford to have a dropoff in productivity should one of your QBs goes down for a time, otherwise your season is effectively over.

Reid and Dorsey get this.

As fans, especially Cheifs fans, we need to rethink our conceptions of "backup" and "starting" and realizing we are entering an era of "starting caliber" QBs.

We are being built to win.

We are being built to win even in the face of adverse contingencies.

We are going to win.

And I like it.

The day we signed Alex I said there was a 50-50 chance we drafted Geno or another QB and everyone was up in arms and convinced it would he Joekel. My how quick people here change.

I personally think it's the right move. That said, it's in our best interest to drum up a lot of attention that we might, or that someone right behind us is.

Because if we have no intention of drafting Geno, and we can convince Arizona/Buffalo that Jacksonville would, we would have our best chance of trading down 6 or 7 spots, recouping our 2nd and much more.

I think Buffalo is the team we can entice to #1 honestly.

It changes quickly based on the information at hand. After we paid for Alex, we thought (along with a lot of others) that they were going to let Albert walk and draft a LT. That changed yesterday.

Ideally, we create a huge smokescreen for Geno, the Raiders trade their entire draft to us for the #1 and Geno is a bust.

No he isn't. You need to move on like the rest of the Chiefs fan base outside of this forum.

Chiefs are not taking a QB in the first round.

AZ is the most likely choice (along with them being one of the strongest arguments for needing two "starting caliber" QBs). Believe it or not, their QB situation was worse than the Chiefs last year.

You guys are going to ****ing explode all over the place again when they inevitably don't draft him. And after the last time, I fully expect actual suicides to take place.

I am trying to save lives.

Have fun with Gabbert next year. But hey, at least you will be in the running for Clowney. So you have that to look forward to....

While I agree with your post with regards to needing two starting caliber QBs, I don't think that the chiefs are thinking this way. I still think they will take Joekel with the first pick because he will be the highest rated on the board, and they will try feverishly to trade back to a spot where they can match need with talent and pick up a pick or two along the way.

I think you are correct with your stragegy. Look what happened to the Texans two seasons ago. They lost their starter, and ended up playing unproven guys or they probably make it to the superbowl.

Having said that, I just don't think this fits what these guys will do. I think they will look for the Qb in the 3rd or 4th round. Maybe a guy like Matt Scott from Arizona or something. I just don't see them essentially giving up a first and a second this year, and next years second for one position.
