Then I guess Denver should have kept him if he was so valuable.

If the Broncos had not landed Peyton Manning, and Elway still insisted on getting rid of Tebow, that's a franchise that could have ended up in big trouble.

There's a huge difference between attempting and succeeding. The Chiefs may attempt to win a Super Bowl with Mahomes, but validation comes from the result, not from the method.


And it would be a validation that Mahomes was the right guy, not that drafting in the first round was right, though obviously you had to draft there to get Mahomes. Or it would mean that somebody had to play QB on a stacked team (years from now) and someone else drafted, signed, or traded for could have won. Too many moving pieces.

Mahommes should start as a rookie, just like Joe Flacco.

 

You know that Joe was the last healthy Qb on the roster, right?

 

Boller was still the starter, hurt his shoulder.

 

Troy Smith (Heisman trophy winner) got sick (pneumonia) before the last preseason game so Joe played.

 

Then Joe started the season, won and kept winning.

 

Rest is history

So it could have been Kyle Boller that won a Super Bowl against the 49ers. I never knew that.

 

(It certainly would never have been Troy Smith. He was Colin Kaepernick Light.)

No no no no no..................and no

 

That was 2008.

 

2009 Boller was throwing INT's for the Raiders

 

Smith lasted another 2 years and sucked. Like Tebow, good College QB couldn't translate into the pros.

Because those Raiders were awful.

 

But, no, I don't think Kyle Boller was Joe Flacco's equal. Boller was better than Troy Smith, and it wasn't close.
