Looking back at Chiefs quarterbacks – Who is No. 2?


JULY 2015 – I recently watched the ESPN 30 for 30 about the 1983 NFL Draft: Elway To Marino and was instantly reminded of our blunder of drafting Todd Blackledge with the seventh pick, the second quarterback selected that year.

Yes, we the Chiefs could have selected Jim Kelly, Dan Marino, Richard Dent or even Reggie Roby (6th round). I sat there wondering if Kelly or Marino would have succeeded with the Chiefs during our miserable years in the mid to late 1980s.

We are only left to dream and ponder of what could have been.
