FLASHBACK FRIDAY: PATRICK MAHOMES PROBABLY WON'T BREAK TODD BLACKLEDGE QUARTERBACK CURSE HAUNTING KANSAS CITY CHIEFS!!!



Mainstream Kansas City sports newsies have been paid to promote another tragic story in the making by way of unrealistic and unfulfilled fanboy expectations.

Longtime local sports geezers are already grumbling but still failing to bring any historical context to the highly touted QB draft pick by the Chiefs.

But those who forget history are doomed to repeat it . . . Which is basically the business model of every pro-sports franchise in Kansas City as they continually get by on flukes or hype before early playoff elimination.

But I digress . . .

Let's talk local history with a name that has cursed KCMO sports fan for more than a generation . . .

Todd Blackledge

Far more than the current QB under consideration, Mr. Blackledge was highly touted, celebrated and even outranked hall of famer Dan Marino as he was drafted by Kansas City way, way back in 1983.

And here's the rub, Mr. Blackledge was talented and had the potential to lead the team . . . But he was unsupported by cheapskate owners, coddled by timid sports newsies and overwhelmed by local rube fanboys and their constant belief in false sports idols.

And so, the football glory of Todd Backledge floundered because Kansas City is where careers go to die.

Since that tragic twist of fate, Kansas City hasn't ever had a decent QB. Alex Smith is overrated, Joe Montana was washed up by the time he got here, Rich Gannon played much better after he left KC and most football insiders agree that this new prospect is sketchy at best.

Accordingly, read sports hype closely and realize that it's just another product pushed on the local populace to distract locals by yet another greedy corporation that gets by on selling hope.

Blackledge won a national championship. This guy is a just a name and a haircut and practice footage. Bad pick Clark. Really bad pick.

It wasn't just Marino. Blackledge was also picked in front of John Elway. The Kansas City Chiefs should stay out of the quarterback game.
They'll never have the commitment to spend good money on a real talent and team leader.

@8:20PM..... Blackledge wasn't picked ahead of John Elway. Elway was picked No., 1 in that years draft to the Colts.

Blackledge was picked ahead of Jim Kelly, Tony Eason, Ken O'Brien and Dan Marino.

^^^ good clarification. Rather than say Blackledge "won" a national championship; it'd be more accurate to say that his team won the national championship and Blackledge was a part of that.

Mahomes is the best prospect of a mediocre quarterback year.
Blackledge was the worst prospect of the best quarterback year ever.
