The Quarterback The Chiefs Should Acquire

Quarterbacks at the NFL Combine. Mandatory Credit: Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

There is a quarterback the Chiefs should acquire. He would be cheap on the market right now. He might even get cut by this weekend and the Chiefs could probably sign him for the league minimum. He has as many college honors as probably any quarterback in the league right now.  During his college career he had a ridiculous 88 TD and 15 INT mark. He also ran for 57 TDs in college!

He has started 14 NFL games. He took a team that started the year at 1-4, and led them to a 7-4 record, and a playoff win. If I shared those stats with the average person they would declare that we should sign this guy today! However, in this case, his methods are somewhat unconventional. If an NFL coach will just give him the keys and let him drive in his way, the guy is a winner!

Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, RGIII, and Cam Newton are all unconventional quarterbacks in one way or another, and are all having success in today’s NFL. Who will give this guy a chance?  I may be the only one, but I hope the Kansas City Chiefs acquire Tim Tebow sooner rather than later and let him run! At least it’d be exciting to watch!

    This would be the deal breaker for me to stay a KC Chiefs fan. Dealing with Grbac, Huard, Croyle, Thigpen, Cassel, Etc. this guy is worse than any of those.

    Tebow? Hell No we trying to win not lose!

    Chip,
    Ya’ know you could be arrested for possession of an illegal controlled substance. At the very least, you should be incarcerated for being a danger to yourself and others. Mainly, all of the Chief’s Nation. And by the way, do you get paid to write this nonsense?

    Lots of issues from this. 1) Tebow is not a QB so that doesn’t help the Chiefs in any way. 2) While no fault of his own the media circus that follows Tebow makes him more trouble than he’s worth for any team. 3) Assuming Tebow could throw (which he can’t) you don’t want to bring in a new QB or draft a QB and have either of them having to deal with the Tebow questions and nonsense that comes with him. There is a reason he’s probably going to be out of the league – nice guy and all but he’s simply not good enough to play in the NFL at the position.

    Chief fanatic here. I find it odd that Tebow is not a QB, yet somehow beat us playing that very position, right here at Arrowhead.

      Last I checked the Denver Broncos, and not Tebow by himself, that beat the Chiefs when Tebow was under center. A lot of terrible QBs managed to win games in the NFL but that doesn’t mean they are/were viable options at the position.

    WOW Tazmanian… let’s not get personal here. It’s just an opinion. Keep in mind, Tim Tebow had a .636 winning percentage leading a team that went 1-4 without him. That means his winning percentage is better than the Chiefs for 14 out of the last 15 seasons!
    It’s better than Matt Cassel, Brady Quinn, Tyler Palko, Kyle Orton, Brodie Croyle, Tyler Thigpen, Damon Huard, and Trent Green for four out of his five seasons. That’s right, Trent Green in 2003 was the last one to have a better record than Tim Tebow. I say let’s take our chances!

      Again this dismisses the reality that it was Denver and not Tebow winning games. He was awful for 55 minutes in nearly EVERY game he played and while the Broncos pulled out a number of wins at the end of games a better QB would not have had his team in a position where such “miracles” were necessary.

        Come on Wally…. the Broncos had a 1-4 record before Tebow started, it turned to a 7-4 record with him.
        2007 Gators: 9-4 Record
        2008 Gators: 13-1 Record
        2009 Gators: 13-1 Record
        WAY too many people focus on mechanics instead of on will and desire. Tebow is a winner!
        To get you really fired up, much Tebow is a winner the same way Trent Dilfer was and took the Ravens to the Super Bowl and won it… and wasn’t their quarterback the next year, Elvis Grbac was and they lost in the playoffs!

          Chip – how do you explain away the 2012 Jets. He wasn’t a winner this season. Tim Tebow is no more an NFL QB than I am. There is a good chance he never plays in the league again.

          He was an outstanding college football player, there is no doubt. He was winner in college. That does not make him an NFL QB. His 7-4 record with Denver had more to do with luck and defense than it did Tebow. Elway knew it, and so does everyone else.

            The college records are worthless. The talent disparity between Florida in the years he was there and most of the teams they were playing was absurd. Go back and look at those Florida rosters and check out how many guys on both sides are playing if not starting in the NFL right now. Denver’s turnaround when he took over for Orton had a lot more to do with their young defensive stars getting healthy and developing. Anyone outside of Skip Bayless that actually watched the games can tell you that.

            I’d rather have a guy that can consistently make plays in all four quarters than a guy that shows up for a handful of minutes a game, luck into some bizarre circumstances and relies on everyone else to carry his sorry backside.

            It’s a TEAM game and the fact that this discussion is even taking place is proof why you don’t bring Tebow into camp to carry water let alone play QB. Fortunately Dorsey and Reid are way too smart to deal with this nonsense.

    I would like to nominate Quincy Carter. He would be a great Chief QB.

      LOL – Heck yeah! Anyone who spent time in the Cubs minor league system can QB my NFL team any day!

    That was a waist of my time, we don’t need that media bull shiz around a team that’s finding itself
