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.

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.
