The Case For Willie Tuitama

Everybody wants a QB.  I'm of the belief that its not the QB position that is holding this team back, rather its the O-line, D-line, and LB's.  Well, and the lack of a competent head coach. 

Still, we'll need to bring in one and probably two QB's next year either through the draft or free agency.  Much of the talk will be centered around Bradford (meh) and Stafford (gag).  I think the Chiefs need to look elswhere to address their QB needs, specifically, they need to look at Willie Tutiama.

Looking at the basics...

Bradford - 6'4" 218 lbs and a 2 year starter.  In 2008 he tossed 48 TD’s to 6 INT’s and had a completion percentage of 68.3%.

Stafford - 6'3" 237 lbs and a 3 year starter.  22 TD’s to 9 INT’s with a completion percentage of 61.1% in 2008.

Tuitama - 6'3" 220 lbs and a 4 year starter.  Finished 2008 with 23 TD’s to 8 INT’s with a completion percentage of 64.9%.

Equally important, is the fact that Willie has gone through a rebuilding process.  When Tuitama took over the reigns, Arizona was outright horrible.  Over his 4 years he helped the team mature into the Las Vegas Bowl winning powerhouse it currently is.

Most enticing, is the pick it would take to get him.  He's easily a 5th or 6th rounder.  Address our real needs on day one, get a proven QB on day two.

I'm all for giving Thiggy another year at this and would like to see that happen without the added pressure of having a high round pick waiting in the shadows.  Tuitama has spent 4 years under center in the demanding Pac-10, he wouldn't cost us a high draft pick, he has a similar build to this years top prospects, and he has proven that he can help rebuild shitty teams.  He's worth a long look come April.
