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 same deal I've read we aren't gonna extend.
I don't want him to get any extension. Play on the remainder of this deal. I agree.

No way! Do you know how hard it is to find someone as stupid as a guy that changes teams based on a terrible player to fight with someone that struggles with difficult works like 'peckor' and 'ownly'?

This is comedic gold! Let them fight this one out!

Geno's pro day is after free agency starts. Alex Smith will be a Chief first.

mostly right but AR did not value WRs for his first 5 years, it took 3 straight NFC championship losses before we went out and got TO in FA

30% chance we take him. It would be amazing if they sat Geno for a year and groomed him after selecting him at 1.1

Chiefs fans have to accept the fact that Alex Smith is Reid's guy and move on..Reid loved Smith coming out of college..I doubt we are looking Geno with the 1st pick..

Ive done this already for the last two years. NOthing to me. I know what kind of player alex smith is. You are better off putting me on ignore. You seem like that type who would rather ignore, than just admit you didnt know shit.

I think Geno may be in the picture still, but I doubt he is high up the list after the Alex Smith trade.

I'd give it a 10% chance we draft him at this point, at best.

We are just trying to keep hope alive because we have NEVER had a franchise quarterback of our own in Kansas City.

I think Dorsey will trade down and accumulate picks. Unfortunately this year there might not be very many offers.

Absolutely. Right now we are staring down the barrel of pissing away another high first on a position of little importance. I'm not a happy camper at this point.
