Philadelphia-eagles
Andy Reid was introduced as the Chiefs new head coach today, and after saying his goodbyes to Philadelphia, praising his new city and just down right being cordial, Pro Football Talk is reporting that Reid will now focus on finding a quarterback, or as he put it, “the next Len Dawson.” “I have looked at the roster and there are some good football players on this football team,” Reid said. “The quarterback position, I’m going to dig in and look at that and we’ll build that thing. We’ll see how that whole thing builds out. I need to spend some time working at it, though. I’ve got to find that next Len Dawson, doggone it. It might be right here, it might not.” “We’ve been blessed with the No. 1 pick in the draft,” Reid said. “You want to make sure you do the right thing and pick the right guy for that. Not necessarily a quarterback — it doesn’t have to be a quarterback. It has to be the right thing. You don’t want to force anything at that point. People that do that get themselves in trouble.” I’m not sure he was referring to Matt Cassel, Brady Quinn or Ricky Stanzi, when suggesting he wanted the next Len Dawson.  Dawson was a Hall of Famer who played for the franchise from 1962 to 1975 and was the MVP of Super Bowl IV.
