Could Two Former Chiefs Reunite In Buffalo?

By now we all know that the Buffalo Bills have been dubbed Arrowhead East by, uh, me. Former Kansas City Chiefs coordinator Chan Gailey coordinator is the head coach and has hired several former Chiefs assistants including Curtis Modkins (RB), Joe D'Alessandris (OL), Kevin Patullo (QC/OFF) and Bob Bicknell (TE).

News is filtering out that Gailey would prefer to bring in a "veteran" quarterback to lead the team, which is leaving some wondering if Tyler Thigpen could be the guy.

There's nothing firm to indicate this would happen but Thigpen has been in the league three years and did start 11 games in one season for the Chiefs.

Is that "veteran"? Eh, I don't know but Brian Galiford over at Buffalo Rumblings thinks it is intriguing.

"There's a not-insignificant crowd of NFL scouts that believe Thigpen, who will be 26 this April, has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback at this level," Galiford writes. "Though Kansas City was just 1-10 in the 11 starts he made in 2008, Thigpen threw 17 touchdowns to 12 interceptions in those contests. That's more scoring tosses than any Bills quarterback has had over the last three years.

"I, personally, would be very intrigued with a Gailey/Thigpen reunion, but rank him this low because, obviously, Thigpen isn't exactly experienced. He'd be a rather large gamble on the organization's part."

With Gailey not exactly spewing confidence in the three quarterbacks on the Bills roster, I wouldn't be shocked if Thigpen was the answer...at least for one year.

He wouldn't cost much money, could come relatively cheap from the Dolphins, and has some starting experience. If the other options Galiford suggests -- Donovan McNabb, David Garrard and Chad Pennington -- aren't available, then I would take Thigpen/Gailey over the other options, even if for just one year.
