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.

That BPA strategy sounds great and all. It really does.

It's perfect when the team's foundation is in place. When you've got your LT, good starters on defense, and that other thing. QB. Yeah, that's pretty important.

Going to a BPA draft strategy is ****ing retarded if you don't have a QB.

Eli Manning sat and that worked out pretty well...

I'm not naive enough to think Geno will be the pick at #1 but if they do draft him and sit him for a year, even 3rd string him a la Palmer, I'm 100% ok with that and would be a happy camper all season long regardless of W/L results.

If you're going #1 overall, that player had better damn sure start from Day One.

Period.
Then there are basically 2 positions in this draft where you can realistically start from day 1. CB and DE.

We all know there is basically a 3 year curve for a defensive lineman.....so his first year is going to be meh at best. And taking a CB at #1 to be your #2 is a little rough. What's the learning curve for a rookie CB? How'd Joe Haden do his first year? Patrick Peterson (remove his PR/KR stats)?

BPA "on our board"

Surely, they set their board partially by need.

Look at GBs draft history....when their defense sucked, they spent damn near every pick on defense.

This is exactly why I believe Dorsey will do anything in his power to trade back, even if that means accepting something well below "value".

Any team picking #1 in 2013 needs to draft a guy that starts immediately. The #2 pick will certain get an immediate starter, as will most teams from 3 to probably 32.

Only the Chiefs are going to pick a guy at #1 that has to sit?

I would think the QB position would get several bonus points in anyones rating system so who's to say a QB is not at the top of their draft board.

I just don't understand why so many want us to use 1.1 on a backup QB.

1.1 should be an immediate starter with probowl potential.

We wouldn't be drafting a QB at 1.1 to be a "backup", and you know that. If that's what happened, the Chiefs would be grooming him to be the face of our franchise for the decade or more to come, hopefully. Although it's been a trend in the past few years for rookie QBs to start immediately, it's not the only option.

Don't be too hard on Hog Farmer it's possible his fingers may be slippery and he typed that by mistake.

No, what I mean is he has the POTENTIAL to be a career backup. If this was not the case there would be team splooging all over him but there's not.

The Giants are a perfect example. They signed Kurt Warner to a 2 year deal and started him for the opener and te first 9 games. They even had a winning record when they pulled him and Eli went 1-6 the rest of the year.

Blame it on the lineup of players coming out. No Ndamukong Suhs. No Von Millers. No Calvin Johnsons. Sorry, that's the way the ball bounces.

Better to draft a QB and let him sit for a year than have to suffer through history alongside the 2008 Miami Dolphins as the only team dumb enough to pick a LT at #1 if you are slightly skiddish on the playability of the QBs this year.

And before you bring up Orlando Pace, remember that Jake Long and Luke Joeckel are not even ****ing CLOSE to being the kind of player Orlando Pace is or was.

Eli played in nine and started seven games his rookie season.

Coughlin later stated that he should have started from day one.

If you draft a QB #1, trade for a QB with the #2, you're essentially heading into the season with the same exact roster that just went 2-14.

I don't see how that's even an option.
