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.

Hog Farmer disagrees.

Alex Smith is our QBOTF.

I hope you're right, but I fear that you're not.

I would jizz in my pants if this were to come true.

I wonder if after the Raiders draft Geno we will be seeing threads about how it's not too late - the Chiefs are working on a trade for Geno. Bank on it.

Wishful thinking, but I'm hoping it becomes true to draft Geno Smith #1.

Strongside 03-05-2013 11:12 AM

I keep coming back to Geno as well. It's already been reported by multiple sources that Reid really liked him...perhaps he feels like he isn't ready to go right away and views him as a project with a ton of upside. Smith could teach him the WCO. Like it or not, if ASmith can't get it done, Geno can step in and get the crash course.

I think Geno has a shot at our #1 if he really does good and shows his stuff on our pro day with him. I forgot what date that is. Isn't it March 14?

We'll know if this is true if KC sends a lot of scouts to WV's pro day on March 14th.

A God I hope we send everyone.
