Here's a fun fact on drafting and developing QB's from within

I heard this on the radio this morning and wanted to share it on AP.

Since 1990, 17 of the 23 QB's that won a Superbowl were drafted on the team they won a Superbowl team for. Only 6 were traded for and won a Superbowl for that team.

1991 New York Giants - Phil Simms drafted by New York

1992 Washington Redskins - Mark Rypien drafted by Washington

1993 Dallas Cowboys - Troy Aikman drafted by Dallas

1994 Dallas Cowboys - Troy Aikman drafted by Dallas

1995 San Francisco 49ers - Steve Young drafted by Tampa Bay

1996 Dallas Cowboys - Troy Aikman drafted by Dallas

1997 Green Bay Packers - Brett Favre drafted by Atlanta

1998 Denver Broncos - John Elway drafted by Denver

1999 Denver Broncos - John Elway drafted by Denver

2000 St Louis Rams - Kurt Warner undrafted

2001 Baltimore Ravens - Trent Dilfer drafted by Tampa Bay

2002 New England Patriots - Tom Brady drafted by New England

2003 Tampa Bay Bucs - Brad Johnson drafted by Minnesota

2004 New England Patriots - Tom Brady drafted by New England

2005 New England Patriots - Tom Brady drafted by New England

2006 Pittsburgh Steelers - Ben Roethlisberger drafted by Pittsburgh

2007 Indianapolis Colts - Peyton Manning drafted by Indianapolis

2008 New York Giants - Eli Manning draftd by New York

2009 Pittsburgh Steelers - Ben Roethlisberger drafted by Pittsburgh

2010 New Orleans Saints - Drew Brees drafted by San Diego

2011 Green Bay Packers - Aaron Rogers drafted by Green Bay

2012 New York Giants - Eli Manning draftd by New York

2013 Baltimore Ravens - Joe Flacco drafted by Baltimore

Lets go over that again, 73% of the Superbowls won from 1990 until 2013 were won by QB's drafted from within their organization.

Meanwhile KC hasn't drafted a QB in the first round since Todd Blackledge in 1983, who is actually the last QB who KC drafted that actually WON a game for KC.

Here's another fun thing to do. Check out some of these QB's draft profile coming out of college. Not very many, if any didn't have their own issues or questions coming out. The difference is those teams actually took the chance and developed their own guys. But here in KC, we're force fed retreads year after year and year after year we're expected to trust the process and that now Alex Smith is getting it and that he has something to prove and is just a great guy. Well I'm tired of it, we've been failing for 30 years now and we still haven't changed our philosophy.
