Since I've been accused of being a Croyle fanboy (probably deservedly so), I thought I'd guage the reaction of those that have seen the game.

What was your first impression?

Here's my breakdown of his passing attempts: http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/showpost.php?p=3382563&postcount=26

his running style is very similar to barry sanders

First game in the NFL, new system, lots of pressure. Wouldn't read too much into it either way.

My choice was: Decent showing for a rookie, but not spectacular

I thought he moved around pretty well considering he had you humping his leg all night.

Best KC QB prospect since Todd Blackledge

Here's my thoughts on Croyle's performance:

Croyle put the ball in the air 11 times...

Attempts:
1. Likely complete to Parker if not for PI from defender. Still a big gain.
2. Incomplete, defended well.
3. Complete, but Webb doesn't understand that you need two feet in in the NFL
4. Screen that the defense didn't buy, Croyle threw it away to avoid a sack. He didn't have a chance
5. Completion to FB in the flat
6. Bad throw. Overthrew McIntyre in the EZ.
7. 30 yard throw to Webb who got called for PI. Webb never really had position
8. Bad throw off back foot to Wilson
9. Flushed from pocket and threw it away to avoid the sack
10. Hit McIntyre in the chest and the receiver flat out dropped it.
11. Hit TE Golliday in the hands and Golliday flat drops it.

So that gives us:
3 should have been completions if not for receiver error
2 Thrown away due to pressure (I consider this positive, better than making a dumb throw)
2 Bad throws, period
2 Throws that were well defended single coverage
1 completion
1 earned a PI call and 20 yards

IMO, of the 11 balls he put in the air, 7 of them were a good job on his part, 2 were a bad job on his part, and 2 were somewhere in the middle.

I think with a couple years of studying the playbook and training, he could be good, so I'll trust the coaching, but I don't think he'll be able to contribute for a while.

I think he showed a lot of potential.

But it will be a long season for him and for us if Trent gets taken out in the Opener. (I am spitting through fingers to ward off hex)

Lump me in with the pack. He threw several balls that 1st string receivers would have caught. Did well in his first game against real competition.

I though he looked great, but the WRs had stone hands. he was going through his progressions correctly, and got the ball their but the WRs have to catch it too

In six years, that's the first time I've seen same-day plagarism right down to the font color...

he looked decent, we definately have something to work with, hopefully he will bulk up a bit and have some better protection and targets by the time he is ready

I thought it was a decent showing for a rookie his first time out.

While his numbers didn't look pretty, sometimes we all can't look at stats all the time. What Jsp mentioned on the other thread is pretty much to mention on each of Croyle's pass attempts.

Croyle looked good, and has good solid basic fundamentals, except his reads is what you expect from a rookie. I would really want to see how he can perform with the first unit instead of back-up players. Having Black and Bober protecting him isn't exactly pretty. It's a miracle that Croyle didn't get scraped off of the field and carried off on a stretcher with that shitty back-up O-linemen.

He looked like a quarterback under pressure, one who understood the offense, knew what he was doing and showed the ability to make all the throws.

He was the polar opposite of Printers, in other words.

Looks like he's a potential QBotF if he can stay healthy, which is what folks seemed to think before the game. Now I've seen it with my own eyes.

I agree totally with this-he made some very nice throws. He is going to be a stud!!
