Personally, I think that it's nearly mandatory that the Chiefs pursue Jason Campbell and I'd make sure that I kept Jim Zorn around as QB coach. Campbell had his best performances as a pro under Zorn. I think he's at the point in his career that he'd be willing to work as a #2 guy and I think he'd been exemplary in that role, especially an offense that was geared around Geno Smith.
And you could get him a lot cheaper than Smith's 7.5 million dollar salary.
And while Wilson is good, I'd be a little scared to draft him in the first round due to his injury history as well as his somewhat erratic performance this season. The concussions scare the hell out of me, especially when this guy is going to be the teams QBOTF. And he's basically the same guy as Geno (size, tough guy, got a little fire in him, good arm, etc.) and I think that Geno has better touch, delivery, accuracy and awareness. (Wilson takes some huge hits in the pocket a lot.)
And there isn't a defensive player or skill position offensive guy (LT, WR, RB) that is as good at their position as Geno is at his.
No, it's Geno and it's not close.
