The Case For Thigpen

I didn't realize how close Bones is in his first season to other successful QBs.  He just may end up being the man.  I have been pretty critical of him down the stretch and sometimes I forget he was only in his second year.  If he fits into the the offense we run next year, whatever it ends up being then he could be that young guy we have always wanted.  

Thigpen is still being discriminated against for being a undrafted free agent if Brodie Croyle would have put up the same numbers as Thigpen the Chiefs would be screaming they have found their QB of the future.

2008 Tyler Thigpen (12 games) : Comp 230 Att 420 Passing Yards 2680 Cmp % 54.8 TD 18 INT 12 Rating 76

2006 Tony Romo ( 11 games): Comp 220 Att 337 Passing yards 2903 Cmp % 65.3 TD 19 INT 13 Rating 95.1

2008 Matt Ryan : Comp 265 Att 434 Passing yards 3440 Cmp% 61 TD 16 INT 11 Rating 87.7

1998 Peyton Manning : Comp 326 Att 575 Passing yards 3739 Cmp% 56.7 TD 26 INT 28 Rating 71.2

2002 Drew Brees : Comp 320 Att 526 Passing yards 3284 Cmp% 60.8 TD 17 INT 16 Rating 76.9

It sounds like Tony is his biggest fan, but we still have to bring someone in here.  We have to cover our backs especially with the QB history in this organization.  It all hinges on the new regime.
