Thinking about some what if scenario's that could happen to the Chief's Kingdom. I am not the best writer or explainer so cut me some slack---or not. Firstly is the idea that Cassel may decide he is done. Yep, just up and retire after getting concussed. Why continually put your future in jeopardy when you have a millions in the bank and kids to raise? Just up and retire and leave the bad happenings that has come into your life behind. That certainly would give Pioli and company pause, and give Brady Quinn that second opportunity of a lifetime.
That was the second observation, Brady Quinn and second chances. He went to a university where there are standards, tough ones to be accepted academically. So Brady isn't no dummy and has to understand that this is a make or break chance in his career as a big league quarterback. As mentioned the other day, Cinderella stories do occur, Jim Plunkett's adventure as a former first round draft choice, subsequent downfall and that he rose out of the ashes to win it all. So maybe we get lucky and Pioli looks like a genius again for bringing Quinn in.
The third observation is the rampant discussion for our future QB. Between the mock drafts, folks wanting to tank the season, certainly looks that way at times, and a need that seems to go on year after year, it is entirely understandable and even is fun speculation sometimes. Face it folks we need a QB unless Brady does turn into Cinderella. I for one hope he does, but even so getting another QB should be something the organization chases this upcoming off season.
The fourth and last observation is that I have been hard on the Chief's coaches and their game planning. I was a proponent of the switch to the 3-4 when it happened, but this scheme isn't near as aggressive as others and I think it needs revamping. And for that to happen we likely need different coaching. Also was the fact that our concussed QB has a dead arm and needed to be replaced, wasn't, which suggests that management may be the blame. If that is true then we need changes in that department as well. This endemic losing may be a result of ownership, and if so, there ain't nothing we can do but boycott the team. Sure as God made little green apples we won't see a change with the ownership, doubtful the management or coaching, so be responsible for your own actions and spend your dollars or not to let them know how you feel about it.
Having been a fan since the 60's, I cannot change-although I tried. So in the end I will watch and hope for the best, but the game is so different now that i feel like my interest is waning and apathy will do for me what I couldn't do when I tried to change. I hope Quinn becomes that miracle that we need to happen here in KC and that my Sunday's will be spent with the team like the last 45 years or so. Go Chief's!!!!!
