Let's give Brodie a chance. Unlike when we had Blackledge. He sat behind sorry Bill Kinney all those years and was rusty. He was one of the best in that group of qb from the 80's. Let him go out there and learn from his mistakes.

Peterson needs to go. Every poor quarterback and wide reciever on draft day are his fault. Other than Bowe the chiefs have not drafted a decent wide out in 20 yrs! Why do we put up with such a poor GM.

I do agree that there has not been any good wideouts until D Bowe to come to KC and that has to have something to do with the main man upstairs calling out the picks.Also it always seems to go the way it is going because every time we get good on one side off the ball we always seem to fall on the other side.

Yes the drafting has been terrible over the years but where is the aggressive, high scoring offense the Chiefs have been known for. We finally have a decent defense and no offense. Maybe one day we will get it all right. The offense has to start with molding and playing the young talent instead of constantly relying on old timers who we may get a good year or two out of ie. Priest now retired Holmes and Larry Johnson. I can't think of alot of past QB's that also fit this bill.
