thats all I gotta say about that.
That, I would disagree with. G Smith is more of a physical specimen but I don't see a complete game from him. And it will only get worse when he faces NFL defenses.
I believe there is a good chance that Crennell survives in KC this year and he will want a proven winner right away. Matt Flynn is not Matt Cassell, he is much better. Flynn's college and NFL experience give him a better base to play from while Cassell succeeded in New England with Josh McDaniels calling the offense to benefit him.
And I don't see a QB that is a #1 overall pick right now. Personally, if I had to choose, I'd pick Matt Barkely first overall because he is an excellent QB and only his recent struggles have dropped him out of the running for the first pick. I attribute a lot of that to his head coach.
The Chiefs have a very good team but they need a good QB and a #1 WR if Bowe doesn't come back. They can get both by trading out of the 1st spot.
And yes, the Jets do need a QB, badly. I bet they would jump at the chance to move up and select either Barkely or G. Smith. They can then let him sit until they are able to get out from under that laughable contract that they gave to Snatchez.
Having a new QB in the wings in NY can preserve Rex's career because then it will look like he is headed in the right direction. He can play the "Sanchize" for the first few games, then dump him for the rookie. That would be the best route for someone like Geno to acclimatize to the NFL. If they get Barkely, I'd start him right away.
Either way, I see Flynn as an opportunity to move up in the first round and get that defensive lineman that will put this defense over the top. IMHO, a pass rushing DT is our #1 priority because we are giving the QB too much time in the pocket. We can then pick up a good WR in the 2nd round. It wouldn't surprise me if Patterson fell in to the 2nd round based on his inconsistencies and lack of urgency in games. Too many times he "saunters" back to the huddle or to the sideline after a play. Something that would change with RW on his ass.
