I'd like to introduce myself, and all that jazz. But I dont have time for it.
I firmly believe that a very good QB makes the team better. They make better reads, better throws, better audibles, they involve their knowledge in the gameplanning aspect. They make the team in general look a lot better. Needless to say I want one of them. But I want to know what do you think.
I commonly talk to a particular co-worker about the SEC, and I always argue, that the SEC recruits the best athletes in the country, but they can't consisently recruit a good QB. His reply, "they can't keep QB healthy enough, so they don't even try to recruit the best QB out of college." WTH is that about? If I didn't have to see the guy everyday I would call him a douche, and go on with life, but since that's not the case I try and reason with him. I know injuries are apart of the game, but damn... Is it that bad?
My guess... The SEC wants to predominately play one way. Great defense, strong running game, no turnovers... I rest my case with the LSU Alabama game. (I feel like if I have to watch AJ McCaren and Jarret Lee battle it out again I may shoot myself) But this raises a question, How do the Chiefs want to play? Most would say Pioli is a SEC tough minded guy that favors that style of play, we all know Haley is a branch from the Parcells tree, and most importantly, and the point I think is over looked is that the Hunt family has been like this since I can remember. (There is one period in time that bucks this trend and thats the tenure of the one Dick Vermeil) Riddle me this, How do the Chiefs want to win? How do they play to win?
I've said all of this to seg-way into this... This upcoming draft the Chiefs will have an opportunity to draft perhaps a QBotF. A QB that can come in and start immediately, and provide this team with something that has been few and far between for this organization. A QB that mangement believes in... A QB that can grow and develop with this young nucleus of talent. Make no mistake about it the chiefs are still in rebuilding mode. The foundation is starting to set. Expectations are building. You are in the draft room, with the final call on the pick. You know the philosophies of the three headed monster in the room. The Chiefs are on the clock with the 7th Overall pick....
Here are the selections made ahead of you:
|2||SEA||Matt Barkley||QB||Southern California|
|3||CLE||Matt Kalil||OT||Southern California|
|4||STL||Alshon Jeffery||WR||South Carolina|
|6||MIN||Michael Floyd||WR||Notre Dame|
Pioli wants to trade back with DAL who has the 22nd pick and has stated they want Trent Richardson. They are willing to give up the 22nd pick, this years 2nd rounder and next years first. With the 22nd pick he is eyeing
|Andrew Datko||OT||Florida State|
and anticipating drafting
in the second round
Haley wants to select Vontaze Burfict ILB/OLB Arizona State

You can be a voice of reason, and have the final say in the WAR ROOM. Make your case
