Is it really possible for the Chiefs to trade for Brady Quinn? The fans should be asking, "Is it possible for an individual to make a decision that will cripple the franchise?" The cost in draft picks -- two first day draft picks, by some estimates -- alone warrants apprehension. It would be irresponsible for the administration to spend that much on one player (an unproven one). This team needs the draft. One can argue that Carl Peterson has an excess of cap space. The team could financially afford any number of personnel transactions. It's a philosophy for which Carl Peterson has been criticized before. Peterson, as well as Herm Edwards*, are trying something new for Kansas City. For the process to work, however, those high draft picks are important. Does it matter that Tyler Thigpin might be a terrible quaterback? Not really; the team's investment is elsewhere. What does matter is that we know now that Thigpin is not ready for the NFL. And in Herm colloquial, "That's OKAY!" Kansas City Chiefs fans asked for change. They're getting it, and now it's up to them (us) to at least support the players. The only comparison, and it's cliche and lame, is with the military and the war. We have to support the "soldiers" that play on Sunday^. Go Chiefs! *Herm doesn't register as a word for in-text spell check. ^Totally weak analogy. My apologies to any servicemen or women who may be offended.
