few month reader, first time 'blogger' (ever), converted from warpath...take that goldzone haha
I was just on nfl.com and read a post about why we signed Cassel. The post read...
jurggy: "... why? he had ONE good season, ONE. w/ a GREAT offensive mind w/ two AMAZING recievers and he put up big numbers. DUH. shoulda kep him a year, and paid him if he delieverd again. too much too soon guys."
I noticed I finally had to respond to someone with my own opinion. I replied, "The reason they did not wait another year is, IF he does good this year, he would be open to ANYONE at any price. They needed to lock him up now b/c this franchise is building around this QB. Even if he is not that good this year, he is gonna have another year of experience, get paid at the same pay grade he was going to make this year anyway, and with time have passing, next off-season, he would have the opportunity for other elite talent to join in the reconstruction of the Kansas City franchise. d'uh."
Just curious if this is the same sentiment most Chiefs fans have? I am still not in KC but i feel like its my home away from home. (both sides of my family reside there) I try to stay on top of everything the team does, but i am far enough away where i still don't really know any Chiefs fans here to ask these questions.
