I know, I know, everyone is waiting to see if Brady Quinn can do the almost impossible for the Chiefs and win.
And I don’t mean just Sunday’s game at Tampa Bay, but the rest of the season.
Let’s say Brady’s a solid quarterback – something he hasn’t yet been in the NFL – that means a 7-9 or 6-10 season for the Chiefs. We already have four losses and just the one win. So if Brady does OK, we win nothing and draft about 14th.
Now comes the big question, do the Chiefs follow the Colts model of “Just lose, baby?”
I felt the Colts may have dumped a game or two, like letting Todd Haley (remember him) come back and win one last season. They had a big lead in that game and somehow let the lowly Chiefs catch up and win. Suspicious.
Be that as it may, my thought is as it has been, is that Clark Hunt should be in a job search for the new general manager right about now. Hire an existing, veteran quarterback if at all possible. Money talks.
There are at least four or five unhappy quarterbacks out there who are top 15. Get one.
Your new general manager and Hunt can decide later on a real head coach. So there’s lots of work to be done and if you don’t get your quarterback – and we know many DO NOT WANT TO PLAY HERE AT THIS TIME – then you must draft near the top.
Meaning LOSE NOW.
Some names that are maybe’s include Tony Romo (likely available soon) and maybe Phillip Rivers.
The Chiefs have some real talent and with a good quarterback they could compete.
As you can now see Peyton Manning is still outstanding, so this division is not so bad.
I don’t like the Chiefs/Tampa game, with four points, yikes I’d likely take the Chumps, but it’s a no bet.
So, come on without, come on within, YOU’VE NOT SEEN NOTHING LIKE THE MIGHTY QUINN (Brady’s theme song)….
