Building success starts with franchise player at quarterback

Tim Rattay could be serviceable if he had a decent supporting cast, but he is not a player to build a team around. Quarterback Matt Leinart of USC appears he could be, and so he's the answer to the most popular question in town this week...

Haven't the Chiefs, or anyone else for that matter, learned that a spending spree does not equal results.

Look at the NE Pats, currently the paradigm for all teams to follow. I bet if Belichek were offered T.O. or Moss for $0.00 - he wouldn't take them. Teamwork and chemistry reign supreme. In this age of parity, as we are constantly reminded, the edge goes to cohesion and execution - not to the biggest payroll or the roster with the most stars.

Not exactly the same in baseball - but an analagous situation: Maybe Steinbrenner has finally learned that lesson in NY. You cannot buy a World Series - IT'S N-O-T ABOUT THE MONEY!!!!

Although from some of the numbers the Yanks have been throwing around, maybe he has learned nothing.

Wouldn't the Chiefs benefit from a couple of decent defense players and a wide reciever?

Sure, who wouldn't? But the rumors are bringing in name players. They should try the "no name " approach. It works better and lets you mold payers into your system, not the other way around. When are you guys gonna learn? How much more educating do I have to do around here anyway?

It's called a rumor fro a reason...

I thought that was the idea of a message board, learn from other people?

As for the Chiefs, they already have a pretty decent team. And bringing in a named player to fit their system would work imo, they just have to find the right one.

I agree that money doesn't buy success in some sports, ok one season they will get lucky but for long term success you need to build your team.

If the Chiefs find the right sort of player then yea a named one would work, but thats the same for every team. And finding one that would fit into your system is pretty hard.

Ming is right you need to bring them through and mold them into your team. But yea TRD i see where ya comming from, but it will be hard to find a player to slot straight in..

I hate to say it, but TO seems to be fitting in quite nice with the Eagles, so it can be done...

posted on Dec, 3 2004 @ 08:21 PM
So it seems, Mr. Gibbs, so it seems. But as I see it, if the Eagles ever hit a rough streak, all hell is going to break loose on that team. As long as they are winning everyone is cool with TO, but should they lose a few, TO beter fire his choreographer and lay low.
