I've been working on a project for a while that is finally about to come to completion. I'm just trying to manage the complex SQL queries to properly generate the charts that would show whether draft pedigree really has any connection to post-season wins, and especially Super Bowl wins.
One of the more contentious topics to come up over the years for Chiefs fans in particular revolves around the comparison of draft picks to bullets, and that the Chiefs just don't fire many bullets in that regard. The arguments are either that the Chiefs don't waste bullets on misses like so many franchises do ('drafting JaMarcus Russell'), or that the Chiefs don't hit their target ('drafting Tom Brady') because they don't shoot. The hyperbole follows thereafter, as indicated by the two examples given above.
If the numbers suggested that the teams that build around the quarterback they have have a better chance of winning a Super Bowl than the teams that constantly draft quarterbacks to plug into their team, would that make any difference in your view of where or if the Chiefs should draft a quarterback in April?
