You might be the only Eagles fan I know who likes Andy. I respect his Monday-Saturday abilities. You just need to kidnap him on game days. I believe he has taken at least five years off the end of my life with his game day coaching.
So you're saying Alex Smith is the difference between the #1 pick in the draft and going to the playoffs? I don't see dealing the #33 unless that guy can help put you over the top.
At minimum they better draft some CBs. Go after Talib even. It is the one aspect of the team which I think needs to be improved now.
Definitely hear you on the Revis point but also think despite age and injury he is still one of the best options. The problem comes with the money he wants.
That's a pretty big problem, and an even bigger gamble. CB is a problem going forward that needs to be addressed though.
No I'm saying Andy Reid's offense with a competent Qb, and a better oline is.
A lot of guys around the office think Andy will be pretty successful in KC ... with SD and Oak 4 of the games, that defense, upgraded OL, and some good play makers on offense they have a shot at the playoffs.
With that said, I can't believe they basically gave up a late 1st round pick and a mid round pick ... seems a little much for Alex Smith who didn't come alive until Harbaugh got on the scene.

If winning was easy even losers would do it.
I think KC will be succesful in the west. If they get steady play from Smith they will be fine. They do need some shoring up on the OL though. I think their pick in the 1st round will be to OT from A&M to help Smith out.

Does anyone have a rundown of what picks SF actually has in what rounds? All I can find is that they have 15 in the top 100 or something close to that.
5 in the top 93.
Here is the current 2013 NFL draft order for each round. Note: Compensatory picks will be awarded in March. Also: a chart showing how many picks each
Good chance Bowe is gone. Alex Smith is coming from a more talented team that he couldn't get to the Super Bowl, how exactly is he getting the Chiefs there? Seems silly, now they're in no mans land, not good enough to really contend for a Super Bowl, but not bad enough to draft high enough for a franchise QB.
Good lord it gets better. They also get a 3rd rounder next year that can become a 2nd. The Niners GM just pulled a fast one.
"that he couldnt get to the super bowl" is a bit unfair. He had them there and Kyle Williams ruined it last year...and this year....we really dont know although we obviously think Kaep is better.
Now, in reality, do I think the chiefs are going to the super bowl this year with alex smith, no ha.
He was nothing more than a game manger for the Niners. At times that offense was flat out awful with a very good oline and running game. Granted he didn't have elite receiving weapons, but if he was good enough of a QB there was more than enough to win a Super Bowl.
Good point since I said nothing about the Super Bowl. Also there are no franchise QBs this draft or next.

I have to agree, if you don't get Alex Smith, your basically hedging that you will finish with the worst record in the NFL and that Teddy Bridgewater will perform up to last year/come out early. You have to play the hand that is doubt and its pretty clear the Chiefs must not have liked Smith or Barkley (1st round projected guys) or any of the next group of QBs (Glennon, Nassib, Wilson, Manuel, Bray).

Well, Smith isn't a franchise QB either. And I'm not sure I ever cited you as saying that, but that's the ultimate goal, and I'm not sure giving up the #33 pick makes your team better.
Also, no one can say if there will be any franchise QB's next year or not. I'm sure no one had RG3 pegged as the #2 pick a year before.
Franchise qb is a debatable term. Rg3 has tons of athletic ability, but I'm not ready to put him in the top ten of Qbs in the league. To me there aren't more than 5-8 franchise qbs playing today.
I'd agree, he's not there yet. But what if he was really on the trading block, good lord the asking price would be astronomical.
Especially since they gave up a shit ton to get him.
If shit ton was in the dictionary, I'm pretty sure the amount the Skins traded would be there.
From what I am seeing looking at KC, they are poised to be pushing for a possible top spot in their division. I am sure it seems crazy, but they have alot of what I believe to be talented young players. Alex Smith has what it takes to fill in for Reid until they get the right guy there. They lack depth at certain positions like LB and DE. Not like this draft is shallow in those spots. They could also use another WR or two. i don't think Bowe is the answer. If they trade out of the #1 spot they may make out like bandits. MIA & MIN hold the most picks and am sure they would be eager to rake the talent of a top player for their team. MIN is in weak @ OL,DL, WR & LB. They may want to move up from the 23rd pick and be willing to give up a mid-round and late pick depending on value. MIA could use help @ RT,LG, and depth @ WR, LB, and DL. I don't think the jump from 12th to the first pick would be enticing enough unless they had someone like Joeckel, Fisher, Werner, Moore, or Floyd targeted. They can probably get what they need where they sit though.
