Prior to last season, they wrote this about Tyler Thigpen:
"Okay, we sort of made fun of Thigpen in last year's "Going Deep section. Apparently we didn't know what the Vikings had, and neither did the Vikings. They thought they could pass their unknown 7th rd pick through waivers to the practice squad, but the Chiefs snapped him up, and they think he really could turn into something. He's a top athlete with a strong arm, but he also makes quick decisions. His problem is experience--like a lot of Division I-AA or Division II stars, he relies too much on physical gifts, trying to make plays that worked fine against the lesser athletes he played against in college but will get him destroyed in the NFL. If he can learn his way past that, it isn't like the Chiefs are loaded at the position. In a perfect world, he turns into their version of Derek Anderson."
Not a bad assessment I'd say. At least they didn't crush him. Now for the funny, here's what they said about Matt Cassel:
"The scouting report on Rusher McFumbles hasn't changed: Great size, great wheels, knows the system, works cheap. Patriots coaches have exactly zero confidence in him, which is why they hired Vinny Testaverde to caddie for Tom Brady two years ago and allowed Cassel into the game only when the Patriots held 35-point leads last year (then took him out when he turned the ball over). Kevin O'Conell is younger and has more upside, while Matt Gutierrez can do everything Cassel does for the same low, low price. Of course, if Cassel is released, some team might sign him just to learn some sensitive Belichick secrets. Matt: If you see a pinpoint of red light hovering over a vital organ, duck."
Wow I think Aaron would like a redo on that one.
If there are any other skill players you want me to look up, just let me know.
