Lol sorry Bilyous, was a good laugh. NFL is in the shadows nowadays except for OTAs & decided to see what kind of reaction you'd give to ole WakarusaChief

Terminally weird is a diagnosis.

This only explains Vonschnitz whereas the hat may be your remedy. Asks for me, I dabble in Wakarusa when I write with WakarusaChief. This way I'm not weird, but insane.

Bray is a veteran.

That's why I wrote that. We should always have a veteran for a backup. Never a rookie. Thanks for getting this back to football.

Exactly this. If we're making Bray the backup and Alex goes down for any extended length of time we might as well get mahomes some experience.

Chiefs have a real shot this year.  Team is not that far away and all it takes is a key injury or two and all of a sudden they can be AFC Favorites.

 

I think Smith is above average and can get it done while others think he is mediocre and he gives us no chance.  Somewhere in that range is the truth.

 

That said, a solid backup is essential in either case.  I do not see Tyler Bray as that guy.  Reid and Dorsey already said Mahomes is not ready.

 

Bray needs to show us some real improvement this preseason or why even keep the guy?

 

Get a #2 on a one year deal and give as many preseason snaps as possible to Mahomes.

I disagree.  Bray has been in the practices and running the offense in training camps for three years. He has studied, and knows, the vast playbook of Reid.  He has done this for a few years.  The rest of the offensive players have done the same thing and deserve to have a backup QB who can use all of those players and the entire playbook.  Mahomes needs at least a year to be able to utilize all of his players and to know what the hell is going on out there, reading pro defenses, etc.  Using him too soon could destroy his confidence and make him tentative.  A lot of promising QB's have been permanently ruined that way.  We have too much of an investment in him.  Bray should be the backup.  No FA QB knows Reid's system like Bray.

Plus, I think that if Bray comes in and plays well, we could either let Mahomes learn more next year or trade Bray. Or we would know that we had a good back up in Brae if we kept him. But if we played Mahomess if Smith went down, we wouldn't know anything about Bray, Bray would have no experience, we cannot trade them for as much.

Having said that, all of this goes out the window if Reid and Dorsey feel that Mahomes could win a Super Bowl with us if Smith went down. If they believe in Mahomes more than Bray, and our window is there, then yes, get some experience for him. Play the best guy and when someone else becomes the best guy, replace.

Yeah as really think that Mahomes could be playing in a year or two. To learn from Alex.
