Chiefs secure Andy Reid for head coaching position

Who wouldn't love to have an improving offensive line and running back Jamaal Charles @jcharles25 at his disposal? That must have been part of the logic behind Andy Reid's interest in joining the Kansas City Chiefs with a five-year deal. No other assistant coaching decisions have been made at this time. The Chiefs are also without a general manager after parting ways with Scott Pioli. This move could also sway Dwayne Bowe to stick around since he was looking for a way out.

Fantasy Analysis:

Reid has a nice foundation to build upon on offense. The big question mark is at quarterback. Matt Cassel struggled and could not stay healthy. Brady Quinn @BQ9 is a viable backup, but nothing more. Ricky Stanzi isn't likely to stick as a third-stringer unless Reid really likes him. So who's next? Kansas City has not drafted a quarterback in the first round since 1983, which was a great year for quarterbacks, not including the Chiefs' pick, Todd Blackledge. It's the beginning of a new era.

Well, if Andy doesn't bring in the DOGMAN from philly to be the QB, I am sure he can build this team. The man knows his football. He has to avoid falling in love with scumbags and trying to incorporate social reclamation projects into his football playbook. I know of a couple good QB's who will be available in this draft, and none of them are the frontline news guys from SoCal and other big time colleges. Most of the good QB's playing today come from some no-name college where a good scout found him. Hope he utilizes his scouting prowess. I am not a Chiefs fan, but I would like to see them become competitive. Good luck, Andy.
