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.

Just go get Matt Moore to teach Gabbert how to play at this level. You'll be fine.

Probably not, but at this point the option is definately in play and worth discussing.

Shouldn't you be kicking around the next player's career that the Jags are going to ruin with the other dozen Jag fans in existence?

You also blow the roof off of Arrowhead by doing so.

Tru Fans got their recycled vet. Baters get their young, stud QB to take over when ready. It really is a Win/Win and we start to regain the homefield advantage that's gone to shit.

Now that I sit here and read this and the responses, I think Reid/Dorsey are going for Barkley. I think they are going to try and convince a team to trade up for our pick to draft Geno, then they will slide back a bit, but still in the top 10, and take Barkley and use Alex as insurance to make sure Barkley heals properly.

It isn't contrarian. It's common sense a team isn't going to use the #1 pick in the draft on a player that will sit on the bench for two years, or give up two seconds for a player that will only start one year. This reminds me of the people who thought KC would take Sanchez even after giving up the 2nd for Cassel.

Just for fun we could trade with the Jets and pick up Tebow AND Revis maybe. That would shore up TWO spots and maybe even STILL get a stud OL. 9 spot is perfect, do it REID!

Common sense?

You mean like giving up two picks, including the #34 overall, for Alex Smith when there weren't really even other bidders?

Common sense.
