Chiefs could help start QB controversy

The Kansas City Chiefs could be a major factor in what may become the most heated quarterback controversy of the past decade.

The Chiefs will line up against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The Eagles' starting quarterback, Donovan McNabb, is recovering from an injury, so McNabb's backup will start the game.

And you know McNabb's backup: NFL bad boy and convicted felon Michael Vick.

Vick is quite possibly going to tear the Chiefs and their weak defensive attack to shreds. If that happens, and if McNabb comes back and falters, then we got ourselves a good, old-fashioned quarterback controversy.

Remember the Kansas City quarterback controversies of recent years? Trent Green vs. Damon Huard? Elvis Grbac vs. Rich Gannon? Those ain't nothing compared to what would happen in Philly. Imagine a normal QB controversy. Then add a dose of soap opera and a pinch of reality television. Finally stir in an episode of "COPS" and the massive East Coast sports media.

It could be huge. And the Kansas City Chiefs could help get that ball rolling this Sunday.

At least then the Chiefs would have something to show for this season.

  1. Actually, the Chiefs' defense has not been that bad; not great, but much better than I expected. But I think the rest of your post is spot on. My brother lives in Philly and roots for the Eagles, so I'd love to visit a little dissension on their heads.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Anon. I guess you could say the Chiefs' defense has been good in the first two games compared to the Chiefs' offense, but... That's not saying much.
