Pioli's draft cliche word "Versatility".....a suggestion


The one thing the talking heads would always mention in the late 60's broadcast of chiefs games is the innovativeness of Hank Stram. I never much appreciated that back then but now it is part of why the empty feeling I have watching the Chiefs. I like having my teams bringing something unique, being cutting edge that other teams are not comfortable in defending. We do not have a Qb suited to excel in todays NFL.....fine...then lets exploit something we do have.

Pioli keeps talking about how he wants versatile football players. I keep waiting for how this virtue is going to be uncorked on our opponents. All I am seeing is how these "versatile" players come up short when ask to play the very defined role that follows the traditional NFL skill set expectations of positional players. So here is a suggestion that I would like knowledgeable football minded APers to discuss why it is a dumb idea in todays NFL.

Lets draft an Optimus Klein in say the 4 or 5th round of the draft. This guy has a skill set comparable to Tebow with the added virtue that, assuming last weeks game against West Virginia was not an anomaly, has throwing accuracy. He also has played wide receiver at the college level.....eewee how versatile.

Much like we utilize defensive sub packages designed to frustrate the opponents offensive rhythm we could whip out some offensive sub packages with Klein running into the chiefs offensive huddle.......maybe for a gimmicky college spread option play, maybe as a slot receiver or maybe just maybe as a true NFL Qb for a series or two.....who knows. If nothing else it would bring a smile to my face when the opponent has to burn a time out to make an adjustment.

So knowledgeable Apers.......explain to me why a smartly employed offensive sub package system, one that completely changes the dynamic of the offensive characteristic of a team, would not work in the NFL.
