CRAIG GLAZER CONSIDERS TONY ROMO 'QUICK FIX' FOR KANSAS CITY CHIEFS!!!
It's obvious that Alex Smith is playing hurt and right now our pal Craig is the only sports enthusiast bold enough to talk solutions for the Kansas City quarterback controversy in the making:
Craig Glazer: Should Chiefs Go After Tony Romo. Is He The Quick Fix.
Our Chiefs have lived off other team's quarterbacks. From Joe Montana, Steve Bono and now Alex Smith all from the 49er's. Yes it got us into the playoffs for years. Trent Green was our man in the early 2000's from St.Louis. However no Super Bowls. This Chiefs team is loaded with young talent, they can make another run next season. Do you think Alex can get us to the big dance this year? It seems unlikely. So Chiefs fans is it time to look to the Dallas Cowboys and Tony Romo?
Yes Tony is often hurt, and now 36 years old. However he is elite when healthy and his lack of deep playoff runs were often due to the Cowboys other issues, like defense. I know its rent a quarterback again, however he has the right stuff, word is his practices have been outstanding and he is very healthy. Now remember this would be next season. I guess with the right offer maybe end of this season! Jerry Jones loves Tony but with Dak having the current number one team in the NFL, Jerry might listen to a trade for draft picks and money. Tony would I think love to take over the Chiefs today, they are built for a super bowl run if our offense was better. He could be the man. At least short term.
I think if we get Romo, we of course draft a number one spot young quarterback for next season to get him ready for 2018 or 2019. If one is available. Lets be honest we have seen top young quarterbacks come out of late first round or like Romo, not a top draft pick at all. We have to look deeper and harder. Its a shame to waste this group we have today. Again I don't know if a deal is possible for Tony. My guess is that it likely could be, we are in the AFC, that helps them feel better to unload him now.
Romo's time would be short, but its better than not taking a shot at the ring. Hope I'm wrong about Alex Smith, but he has stayed about the same his entire career here. Good not great. He does play his best in the post season, but still we don't go far. Is it Romo time?
