Sure, I would very much like to have a young franchise QB, but it is far from certain that Reid and Dorsey had that opportunity at all this year, and so far the results of what they did do are pretty damn good.
Geno Smith has been tossed in the fire. He is not ready, and as a rook he is taking his lumps just as Eric Fisher is.

Geno Smith has a HUGE upside in his skills, but his problem is decision making, which is something sitting on the bench for a year behind Alex Smith and Andy Reid (in theory) would help tremendously.

If we would have drafted Geno Smith, we would have someone with awesome talent and work ethic, and possibly good enough coaches to get him to stop throwing stupid interceptions. You never know what Geno Smith could've been in KC, because they chose Fisher instead.

Think of how one small decision you have made has totally changed your life... That same thing applies in football. You can play the "what if" game all day.

What if Ryan Leaf didn't play Kansas City that day? Would his entire career have melted down afterwards? What is Peyton Manning went to the Chargers? Would he still have been an Elite QB? Nobody will ever know.
