To be fair, I doubt Trent would fair much better with the lack of protection that Printers is getting.Regardless of pressure, the guy's mechanics are a mess, he has no touch, and he can't progress through his reads.

It's more than just having pressure in your face. He looks like a HS QB.

Though I agree with you, he still looks better in preseason than any other QB on the team not named Green.

Who's shown something? Honestly through this preseason I've seen 0 bright spots on this team. No one has stood out, not even young players in garbage time. Page and Pollard are playing in the 4th quarter against scrubs they aren't standing out. Right now NO ONE looks impressive.

With Croyle's injury history, I doubt he lasts too long with the way our OL is letting defenders past them.

He'll look better getting blasted and going on IR, a staple of the "I'm made of glass" game that Brodie Croyle brings to the table.

I hope you had fun watching Rob Johnson tonight because that's our future.

I hope you had fun watching Rob Johnson tonight because that's our future.Glass Brodie Croyle has already done more than Casey Printers simply by getting drafted.

As for Rob Johnson, he couldn't be more different than Croyle, other than looks. Johnson has always been a mobile QB, while Croyle is a classic pocket passer. If anything, in regards to playing style Printers is your Rob Johnson.

Pretty pathetic when SMoker, who has been in camp an entire week, looked more poised and capable of completing a pass.

I don't think too many QBs would have been successful facing 5 sacks on 17 dropbacks as he did in the first game. Its obvious he's not caught onto the speed of the game and doesn't know how to step up into the protection when the rush is coming to get an extra second. His footwork is what needs the most work.
Why was Huard out there for 4 snaps? As bad as he is, we can't afford to put him out there with our 2nd team line. I don't think its horrible at every position, but there are some huge holes. Luckily we don't have to keep too many of our backups. The ones we do keep may not be the ones responsible for the lack of protection.

What is really obvious is that some folks on this board think that Webb is the next great receiver and are slamming Printers for Webbs drops. Webb looked like the second coming of Bartee but on offense.
Printers hit him in the chest a few times and he kept dropping the ball.

But that's not the point. I saw Webb make some important catches, and the ones he dropped from Printers were just plain shittily thrown balls. Fault goes to the QB on that one.

Besides, not counting Kennison, Parker, Hall, and Gonzalez, who else on this ****ing team could catch those passes that Printers threw? I don't care how bad our young receivers are... those drops were mostly Casey's fault

I want to know why Huard was only allowed to throw 4 passes.It was announced during pregame that Huard would play, but not much just because he isn't 100% healthy yet. They wanted to play him one series so he could get a feel back, but not overexert himself

He definitely looked more calm in this game than his first, but he still threw a couple of bounce passes to our receivers.

One play I saw him scramble and then actually settled down to make a pass. I yelled out good job, right as I was done saying it the pass hit the ground in front of the receiver. Yikes.

I think he is PS material. I dont just want to dump him he is still very raw, but is talented IMO.

Go back and watch him on those passes. His ankle is still bothering him a lot, he didn't step up into any of those passes. I don't think he has any confidence in the ankle. Heck, he looks like he is aiming the ball instead of throwing it, like a dart.

Did you expect differently? When Croyle gets back there and gets killed because he can't run for his life like Printers can, people are going to call him a bust too. You have to remember, if some people made the personnel decisions, Larry Johnson, Kawika Mitchell, and Dante Hall all would've been cut 4 years ago. A really great football team, this would be.

Personally, I do like Croyle better just because I prefer pocket passers, but if we kept Printers as a 4th QB I wouldn't complain. I think he has a long, long way to go, but that doesn't mean we have to whack him yet.

If you've been watching him since he came here, he has no aim. He throws the ball like he is throwing one of the pumpkin shaped balls they used to use in the 30s and 40s.

Patience with a team and patience with a player are two separate things. Casey Printers has played in two preseason games. He's thrown 22 passes in this league. People already want to give up on him. It really frustrates me to no end.

Printers is oozing with talent. He just needs some seasoning. Paprika, perhaps. Maybe a little salt.

I'd like to see them put him on the practice squad, but not sure if someone else would take a flyer on him -- he's got some physical ability that other teams may be willing to develop.

Of course, it's the mental part I'm worried about. For a guy with "professional" experience, he looks as lost as a 5-year old blind kid trying to cross an 8-lane freeway.

I guess we will have to see when it comes to Croyle. But Printers isn't a rookie like Croyle, and should be more fundamentally prepared than he is right now.

I'm all for giving Printers one more opportunity, but I'm not so busy trying to wear his cheerleader outfit, that I can't be realistic about his inability to adapt to the NFL.

I hope they end up keeping 4. I don't think Printers or Croyle are ready to be a number two. Both have a much bigger upside than Huard. I would lean more towards keeping both young guys instead of Huard for one reason. If Huard is in the game because Trent is hurt we are done anyways. Might as well get a young guy experience.

SNR
08-19-2006, 10:50 AM
I'm not suggesting cut him for crying out loud. But I do think that once Croyle has a chance to show what he can do in this league, there will be no question that Printers is the odd man out. If we can keep him on the PS and have him back for next year, that would be fantastic.

FringeNC
08-19-2006, 11:13 AM
Tom Brady is the best QB in the league, and how physically gifted is he? Michael Vick is the most physically-gifted man ever to play QB and I think he is a terrible QB.

All this talk of upside -- I don't see it. Who really cares if Casey Printers is physically gifted if he has the "deer in the headlights" look?

I'd much rather have a QB with average physical skills, and have him be mentally-gifted like Joe Montana or Tom Brady or even Trent Green.

Daunte Printers hasn't got what it takes to be No. 2..He does have the speed to be a roll-out QB..they need to work on that for him in case he does have to play..Right now the team as a whole needs to step up if they want to fight for this divison...10-6 to 11-5 season hope thats good enough...

First of all, I don't think we have to worry about who's playing quarterback. We will never see them anyway. If the damn d-line can't stop the run, and I'm not just talking about the misdirection or draw plays that seem impossible to stop. It seems that we have to get lucky to even stop a straight gap handoff. As for Printers I would like to see him stick around, because if our line does'nt protect better we're going to need some legs behind center.

Don't forget Sims......

Sorry dude Sims isn't a bust, he is at worst a serivceable starter. A true bust doesnt see the field.

------------------------

Now back to Printers. I sort of agree a little with GoChiefs, crap that is scray. Now he has looked like crap I will admit. But consider this - at TCU he was an option QB same at Florida A&M. And in Canada its let her rip type of offense. Basically its lot of throwing and scrambling. And I know he wasn't the starter all the time up there, actually only for one year I believe. He looks like he is told to stay in the pocket, which has made his hesitant. He has looked like crap but he is a project. Keep him on the PS and then send him to Europe. I doubt he is are future QB but hopefully we can groom him so we can get something out of him.

If Sims was taken in the 6th round, he wouldn't be a bust; given that he was taken #6 overall in the draft, he's a huge bust. If Sims wasn't such a high draft pick, his ass probably would have already been cut.

He's a bust......being picked 6th overall means you are suppose to be a cornerstone player, not a serviceable starter. Because the Chiefs have a player like Trezelle Jenkins on it's draft history who was about as big of a must as one could possibly be doesn't make another player not a bust. By those standards no player the Chiefs ever pick is a bust because none of them are as bad as him.

Sims has played like an ok 3rd-4th round pick, not a 6th overall pick that makes him a bust.
