Kansas City Chiefs
In only his second career NFL start, second-year Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Tyler Thigpen completed 25 of 36 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns in a 28-24 loss to the Jets last weekend. Despite Thigpen’s solid performance, the Chiefs' loss was their third consecutive, not to mention their 15th in their past 16 contests. Commentary:...

They are competing with the Lions and the Bengals for the 1st overall pick!! Well Thigpens preformance was suprising, i was shocked while checking the scores from Texas Stadium this Sunday to see the chiefs actually competing till the bitter end. The chiefs next opponent I saw in person Sunday. BEWARE OF THE SCREEN Chiefs fans, you will see alot of them. I dont see the Chiefs offense moving the ball any better than the Cowboys did against them. If they are going to have a chance they will have to win in a similar fashion, hard nose defense and getting plenty of pressure on the rat.

Yea forget culpepper anyway work with thigpen you arent going to win or make the playoffs anyway so whats the difference work with what you have.

Well culpepper could provide that "bridge" between the player the Chiefs BETTER draft and the current regime. There are rare exceptions where a quarterback plays immediatly after the draft and has success compared to one who sits and learns the offense. I dont believe Chiefs fans will be patient enough for that to happen though.
