Quote:
Earlier this week, Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn said heíd been cleared to play on Sunday, when the Chiefs host the Bengals.

Quinnís boss disagrees.

Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel told reporters on Wednesday that former starter Matt Cassel will get yet another start in place of Quinn, per Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. But not because Cassel has earned it; Crennel said that Quinn hasnít been cleared to play.

Itís unclear why Quinn thinks he was cleared if in fact he wasnít. It could be that the Chiefs simply want to give Cassel another game without affirmatively benching Quinn.

Thereís also a chance that Quinn is in the doghouse for: (1) not telling the team he had suffered a concussion last month against the Raiders; and (2) telling reporters that he played with a concussion, which triggered more bad P.R. for the team that currently is arguing with the Jags over which one is the worst team in the league, and which one is in fact Schmoopie.

Unfortunately this doesn't surprise me one bit, an d fact I was imagining the other day this very scenario playing out in the media. I wouldn't be shocked if Quinn is really cleared to play and in reality there is a vested interest in seeing the "preferred" choice getting the start, especially from the front office.

Maybe Daboll knows the real reason, ala why JC didn't get the ball more in whatever disaster game that was a few weeks back.

Well, going along with the 'conspiracy' theories, lets try this one on. Romeo/Dabold are throwing Cassell under the bus one more time to make it perfectly clear, as it has been with all of us for some time, but now finally to Pioli, that Cassell IS NOT the guy....albiet at the expense of Quinn.

Hey, it's not any more crazy than whats coming out of One Arrowhead Drive on a regular basis, now is it? Wink

I really like to stir it up....come on guys, let me have it.

It's also at the expense of Stanzi, and that's what is frustrating. At this point why on earth play Cassel? It's certainly not in the long term interest of this team.

It's not in the short term interest either. We have no reason not to play Stanzi.

By Romeo's logic, the fact that the defense stepped up and played the steelers to overtime means Cassel gets credit for that too. His logic is so messed up. Close game or not Cassel played HORRIBLE and in fact was the one that lost the game for us.... Romeo is treating monday night like a moral victory, and giving EVERYONE credit for that....even though the offense only scored 13 points and Cassel threw for less than 200 yards, completed ZERO third down conversions and threw the game ending pick in overtime....that is sad logic. Romeo needs to go.

That and, honestly, i feel bad for Cassel too. Good guy and hard worker but he just doesn't have it and he's getting ripped apart by everyone including opposing D's. Its gotta be affecting him outside of the stadium as well. He needs a "mercy-benching". Wink

#Chiefs injuries: Baldwin, Asamoah, O'Connell did not practice. Bowe, Poe, Maneri limited. Quinn was a full participant

The only guy they should be interested in seeing play is Stanzi....and that has nothing to do with me personally wanting to see him. They are OUT of the playoffs, Stanzi will bring more people to home games and give anyone who still thinks they'll be around a better idea of what they have, it might give the other players more motivation, and hey crazy thot but it's possible he might be able to provide some things that the other 2 QB's can't.

I totally agree. We have nothing to gain and everything to lose at this point. By having Stanzi start for the rest of the games we get a chance to see if there is any long term projection as either a potential starting candidate or even as a future backup. By still trotting out Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn we aren't getting any benefit. We are already beyond hope for the season so IMO this is a perfect opportunity to see what we have at the quarterback position.

It ticks me off to think that Pioli might still be pushing Cassel, and with Quinn being a UFA next year, I don't see the point in looking at the possibility of re-signing him to a multi-year deal.

but I just remembered, they're still trying to win to salvage their jobs so they will go with who they believe gives them the best chance to do that, which is selfish because the best thing for the team is to see what Stanzi has. Regardless, they will go with Cassel or Quinn for that reason although ironically, part of why they are on the hot seat is because they suck at evaluating QB's and Stanzi may very well give them the best chance to win.

I like Stanzi being a stud is the only thing that can save Pioli. Even if Cassel leads us to a 4-12 or 5-11 record I think Pioli is gone....But if Stanzi looks like a legit QB. Then Pioli could claim credit for that.
