Chad Henne, however, is not the answer. While the Chiefs have been publicly linked to Peyton Manning and they interviewed Robert Griffin III among others at the Combine, the Chiefs bringing in yet another mediocre quarterback in hopes that one suddenly finds the ability to lead an NFL team to greatness. In this instance, in other words, one plus one does not equal two. It just equals one again — as in “you need one more quarterback.”
The Chiefs have done a great job building up the roster since Pioli took over, adding impact players in the secondary and at the skill positions. Quarterback has to be the next place to receive some sort of boost that moves beyond efficiency and into the realm of game-changing ability. Will that cost? Yes. Has any team regretted that cost in the past? Likely not.
