Admit it, Eric Fisher Kinda Sucks As A 1st Round Draft Pick For The Kansas City Chiefs!!!
In what might be been one of the worst NFL drafts in history, the Kansas City Chiefs made a conservative, cheap and boring choice that's not only reflective of their continually FAILED front ownership philosophy but also offers some insight into how the team plays football.
To wit . . .
ERIC FISHER AS A 1ST ROUND DRAFT PICK REALLY SUCKS!!! IT'S NOT A RISK, IT'S A LOTTERY WIN FOR SOME GOON THAT ONLY FANBOYS ARE GONNA REMEMBER!!!
Look for the media to tout these attributes of the pick . . .
He's very friendly . . . Doesn't matter and doesn't help during a game.
He has a strong academic background . . . Then he shouldn't have taken a job that doesn't involve a helmet.
He's really excited to play in Kansas City . . . Obviously, he's unfamiliar with the history of this franchise.
WaPo: NFL Draft 2013: Eric Fisher goes first overall as offensive tackles dominate early picks
SI: The Chiefs can drop Fisher in at left tackle and turn their full focus to remaking the rest of the team to fit Reid and GM John Dorsey’s vision. Fisher has all the tools to live up to his No. 1 pick.
ESPN: Fisher was only the third offensive tackle picked No. 1
In conclusion . . . He's a great run blocker which means NOTHING in the NFL and because he's been playing against college losers that means his big league pass protection skills are almost totally untested.
With most of the league focusing on offensive lineman during the 1st round . . . The Chiefs are obviously tied into the groupthink and mob mentality of so many other teams with bigger budgets, better TV markets and a greater depth of talent.
The choice was safe and there's no reason that team a dwelling at the bottom of the league should want to maintain the status quo even if that kind of self-destructive mentality is a character trait that defines Kansas City.
