View Full Version : Any Significance to Croyle Sitting Out?

08-03-2006, 01:22 AM
I read that Brodie Croyle did not take any snaps in Wednesday's practice. Did they just run out of time due to the half day rain out or should we read anything else into that? It seems like Printers is getting most of the work lately between the two.

Carl just wants to see a black QB do well

Croyle's a draft pick, he'll get his shot, and then some.

Why is he sitting out? Has this been explained? I must have missed it.

I have been reading the "Daily Updates" on the UWRF site. Here is the one from Wednesday afternoon.


I thought it was interesting that it said "Quarterback Brodie Croyle did not take any snaps at todayís practice", yet it looks like Printers got a significant amount of work.

Maybe he'll get the majority of the third-string snaps today.

The Chiefs have set up a "boys club" for the neighboring Vikings team and Croyle has been taking his time out to help coordinate activities for them, so they would stop sucking on their own thumbs and play some football.

Again, from this morning's practice:


"...Printers, who was putting on quite the performance at this morningís practice. Throwing with both precision and speed on his passes, Printers opened the eyes of many Chiefs fans today."

Again, no mention of Croyle since Monday's practice. Printers is mentioned every day.

I wonder what's up.

According to a post on WPI, he has a sore shoulder and should be practicing again in a few days.

He tore all the ligaments in both his knees and his career is over

"Rookie Brodie Croyle didnít practice because of a sore shoulder but could return as soon as today."

Word is, Printers is good.

From today's Gretz:

Roman E. - Tell me about the young quarterbacks and what they are doing in camp. Nobody down here in Kansas City is spending much time on them and I think one of these guys needs to be our quarterback of the future.

Gretz - "Roman, in this first week of camp Brodie Croyle and Casey Printers have looked pretty much as they did in the off-season work back at Arrowhead. Croyle is much more advanced fundamentally and heís got more than enough arm to make a place for himself in the league. Printers is the finest physical specimen the Chiefs have had at quarterback in the 25 years that Iíve been hanging around this team. Heís big, strong and heís got a gun on his right shoulder. But his footwork still needs a lot of work and he tends to break the pocket at the first sign of pressure, an indication of his days in Canada.

Hereís a prediction for the pre-season: Printers will become a fan favorite and will be proclaimed by some as the QB of the future. Heíll be on the field in the fourth quarter, playing against the other teamís third-string defensive guys. His protection will break down and Printers will start running all over the field throwing balls 50 yards down the field and completing some behind the defense. It will look sensational and Chiefs fans will ooh and aah and get excited about his future. But Printers remains a raw, raw product, and heís a long way from being the teamís quarterback of the future."

Or not:

Also in 11-on-11s, quarterback Casey Printers was 0-3 in pass completions, throwing one interception. He threw one too deep for wide receiver Jeff Webb and another too low for wide receiver Darrell Hill
