Looking at what he gave up for and what he paid Cassel, he clearly thought he was getting a good QB back in 2009. Oops...

Realistically you could have drafted Dalton this past season....he wasn't selected but 8 picks after your team drafted at 26 overall. Not much of a reach given how well he performed in '11 as a rookie. sure he's only had one season, but he shows alot of promise wouldn't you agree?

Realistically drafting Sanchez at #3 overall wouldn't have been stupid considering he's led Jets to not one but two conference title game appearances. And while he might have sucked as a head coach, Haley was a pretty decent guy who probably could have done more with a QB like Sanchez.

so realistically speaking, you're not correct in claiming nobody was available

SCOREBOARD
Which game? In narrowhead or in Denver? Queef fans like to talk about theory 7 to 3 SB win but fail to mention the other game.

the Panthers played alot of 30-24 kind of games last season....and that tells me while their offense improved, their defense isn't keeping pace.

The Falcons won 4 of their 10 wins vs rookie QB's...beating the likes of Ponder, Newton twice and Gabbert.....oh, and this isn't Manning's first rodeo

Donovan McNabb (MIN) - Good for a year or two when available

Stanzi is your only QB draft pick in the last few years. I would be gun shy too if the last high pick was Croyle!

We got Peyton because the Front Office sold him enough to land him. He wanted to go to a franchise he thought had a chance. He obviously didn't think KC was in the same ballpark. Why? Just look at the name of this thread.
Vick would have been stupid. The backlash would have been enormous. Plus he is fragile.
Flynn=Cassel
Orton took starting QB money to be a backup, and he's about the same as Cassel anyway.
Campbell is average and isn't definitively better QB than Cassel.
McNabb sucks at that point in his career.
Peyton was never a realistic chance.

So ragging on Pioli for not getting a great QB thus far is laughable. Every QB on that list (save Vick) isn't much of an upgrade at all at this point in their careers.

Cassel was the best realistic option KC has had since Pioli has gotten here, and going through a rebuilding phase he hasn't been that bad, considering the bad supporting cast he's had up to now.
Pioli will be judged on the QB that he gets to replace Cassel.

Bengals have a top 10 defense and really strong weapons on offense.
Panthers will most likely have the best running game in the league along with a good defensive coach.
Falcons are still a strong team.

Saying that beating those teams on the road will be easy is plain stupid.

And let's also not forget that your team beat 2 rookie QB's, Caleb Hanie, Tyler Palko, and the worst team in the league at the time (Miami), so let's not act like the team surrounding Manning is full of world beaters.

If miami was the worst team in the league at the time what does it make the chiefs when they got blown out at home by them. The worst team in the league all season was the Colts.. and the chorfs barley got by them

The Lions wanted Stafford and nobody else with that pick. You don't trade a pick when you think you have a franchise QB in your grasp. And everyone knows that franchise needed him. No way they were going to give him up.

Mark Sanchez is almost the same exact QB Matt Cassel is. Sanchez had outstanding surrounding talent in his early years and relied heavily on it.
Now there are people who would take Cassel over Sanchez, because Sanchez has been so incredibly average last year.

No you're changing the rules. Peyton Manning wasn't a realistic chance for KC. He didn't even come visit. Mind telling me how that is "realistic"?
The reason Peyton didn't give San Francisco a chance was because he would have had to have played his brother in the playoffs, not because Denver is a better franchise.

Then Alex Smith would have been looking at a new team and as he sets his appointment book for KC, Denver calls him up and cancels the meeting in KC. He then signs with Denver before giving KC a chance. That is probably how it would have went down.

Maybe Manning would have taken KFC more seriously if they had Steve Bono fly out to pick him up and bring him to KC?


Well maybe not.

If's and but's.

Fact is, Alex Smith almost got to the SB last year based on his coaching and surrounding cast. Rex Grossman had success too.
It's not out of the picture that KC could have success with Cassel in the playoffs.

Why mention it? It doesn't apply. You guys say the Chiefs are one of the worst teams in history. I say "scoreboard". I say "as bad as we are, we can still whip your ass".


Pretty straight forward.

Hasselbeck.

Or, if we expand it past "good" to "better than Cassel," it would add McNabb, Orton, and any number of QBs in the draft.

7-3 is hardly an ass whipping especially with us playing a caveman fullback for a QB. Worst franchises is more like it. Historical franchise Yes they are but actual success they are one of the worst.

I guess you will ignore my post on that exact post you made. Pick and choose. Just like KCDud has done on this whole thread.

You know the NFL has a system in place to determine what teams are better right?

NO!NO! NO! See if a team is undefeated and they lose to an 0-12 team, the 0-12 team no longer sucks worse than that 12-0 team. They might go 1-15 for the season but they will be better than the 14-2 team. True! Just ask Crazyhorse and he will explain his logic.

Enjoy your 7-3 win while you can. If Manning is healthy it may be the last time that KFC splits a series from the Broncos for awhile.

McNabb sucked at the end and Orton/Hasselback are basically the same as Cassel. None of them were significantly better than Cassel at this point in their careers.

Manning struggles against Romeo's defense and you still can't stop the run, but continue to think KC has no chance.
