The Kansas City Star has a new statistically-oriented sports blog, and Bradford Doolittle -- you may recognize the name, he writes over at Basketball Prospectus -- uses FO stats to try to analyze whether Tyler Thigpen is Kansas City's quarterback of the future, or just a placeholder. He even uses a pretty complex similarity scores system that includes DVOA. Doolittle's conclusion seems pretty close to mine: Who the hell knows? Is Thigpen enough of a sure thing that the Chiefs should pass on Matt Stafford or Mark Sanchez if they feel one of these players is worth the third pick overall? No. Is he clearly so bad that they have to reach for one of these players or desperately go sign a veteran quarterback? No. However, the Chiefs do have to figure out why on earth Thigpen got so much worse with each successive quarter. His fourth-quarter numbers are atrocious.
