The constant negativity is tiresome. Who is ready to join me and move on?

I'm finding this constant negativity tiresome. We have sucked for years. We were an embarrassment. A big ****ing joke. I'm done with the negativity.

I wanted Geno. I think we overpaid for Smith. I'm scratching my head over some of their moves.

Reid and Dorsey obviously have a plan. For crissakes, Reid watched every down of every player for the whole ****ing year before he even met with Clark. I'm going to give them AT LEAST a half a season before I start calling them dumb-asses and screaming for their head.

I don't think I'm accepting mediocrity by choosing to not scream and yell and be totally pissed off by the moves so far. If you think so, you are entitled to you opinion.

I was an early and financial supporter of SOC. Season ticket holder for years. I think anyone would label me a hard core Chiefs fan. Just like most of the posters on this board. We deserve better than we have been given by our team. I will be a Chiefs fan until I become worm food. Lifes too short to go around pissed all the time. I did enough of that the last few years.

I'm going to chose to hope that Reid and Dorseys plan is sound and will result in the return of winning football and our first playoff win since the Montana era. Who's with me?

But here's to hoping they get it right eventually
The point of the OP was not to advocate sticking our heads in the sand, ignoring history or facts of our new players.

Just that we don't have to have every single thread filled with negative thoughts. And maybe we should consider waiting until at least a half a season before calling for Reid/Dorsey's head.

I'm trying to advocate against building the San Francisco way simply because it's so damn hard to find that many talented players across the board, THEN keep them all happy contract-wise. It's a lot easier to fill one position and simply make good selections (i.e. BPA) than it is to take an Alex Smith or Matt Cassel and depend so heavily on finding that Justin Smith, five studs on the offensive line, Aldon Smith, etc.

And before you leap down my throat with "San Francisco almost won teh Super BOWL!!!" I'm talking about team BUILDING. Alex Smith may have been pretty successful with the 49ers, but who was accompanying him on that team, and how long did it take to acquire all those guys? That's a lot of drafts. It also means rolling a yahtzee on your coaches and your GM.

That's not to say that the Packers and other teams who espouse "BPA" don't require years of player acquisition and development, or that they don't have great supporting casts. They do, but there's no question who keeps those teams going. The 2011 San Francisco 49ers with just two or three injuries to crucial players on that team turn into a 90s Chiefs squad who can't ever turn the corner. The 2010 Green Bay Packers had at least double the injuries to crucial players on that roster and won the Super Bowl anyway.

I know which way I'd rather build.
Andy Reid built that way in Philadelphia with Donovan McNabb so it shows that he's not against it. He may even prefer it. BPA isn't an antonym for building around a franchise QB. But you have to have a QB prospect available to build that way (and he also needs to be available to be considered the BPA). You seem to refuse to even consider the possibility that Reid/Dorsey just don't see that prospect in Geno Smith (or any of the other available draftee QBs).

And that's fine, I like the moves so far. But until they start winning, it's gonna be a bit negative around here.

History with past GMs and coaches has no relevance to today. Reid and Dorsey are not Pioli and Crennel or Peterson and Herm. Give them a chance. They haven't even had one single practice yet and you guys are already pronouncing them a failure. Absurd.

To be fair if history doesn't matter to the new regime.......Why do we keep repeating the mistakes of the past?

What was a mistake in the past isn't necessarily a mistake today. It is a different situation.

So our failure to draft a starting QB worth a crap since Len Dawson is just happenstance?

Or incompetence. But we don't know that Reid/Dorsey are also incompetent just because past people were. And we didn't draft Len Dawson. The greatest QB in Chiefs history, a HOF QB, was a retread. His record in the NFL before joining the AFL's Dallas Texans, was a complete failure. 21 passes for 204 yards and two touchdowns in his five (pre-AFL) seasons in the NFL before being cut.

Alex Smith has been far more successful than Lenny was before coming to this team.

I am not pronouncing them failures. I disagree with their approach.

this is the rationale of failure that keeps the chiefs from getting a QB

Whats the definition of insanity again?

Oh yah: repeating the same behavior, but expecting a different result

They have a QB. He just isn't a drafted rookie, so you are butthurt. Not my problem.
