5 Things to keep in mind during tonight’s preseason game Saints at chiefs, 7:30 tonight, Channels 2, 5, and 13; KCFX (101.1 FM)

Will the No. 2 quarterback please stand up?

Coach Herm Edwards alluded to the fact that some offensive starters might not play at all tonight. If that list includes quarterback Trent Green, then prepare yourself for a long night for the offense. Rookie Brodie Croyle struggled in his debut last week against the Rams, and Casey Printers (below) also had his share of problems. Maybe veteran Damon Huard will finally get some playing time. That may not mean the Chiefs will have any more success in moving the chains.

Will it be Hannon, Webb or some other guy?

Edwards made a rather surprising move this week when he cut Craphonso Thorpe, who was seemingly a lock as the Chiefs’ No. 4 receiver this spring. Thorpe ran into more injury problems, and now that job is a race between rookies Jeff Webb (right) and Chris Hannon. Unless, of course, Kansas City finds a veteran to its liking on the waiver wire.

Can Junior make up for lost time?

This is obviously a game for the backups and roster hopefuls, and maybe nobody needs to impress more than defensive tackle Junior Siavii. The second-round draft pick in 2004 has been out because of a knee injury, and he is in serious danger of being cut this weekend. Siavii may need a monster night to stay alive.

Any other veterans sweating it out?

Defensive end Carlos Hall (right) might be counted in that list. The coaches love his playmaking ability, but they’ve rarely seen it because he’s been hurt so much since he came to Kansas City last year. Is he good enough for the Chiefs to hold a spot for him?

Does anybody really want to be here tonight?

You do because you plunked down $30 for a ticket. But with the starters on the sideline, and the backups sweating out their fate, it won’t be the most enjoyable of nights. The stands were more than half-empty in the fourth quarter of last weekend’s Rams game. The mass exodus will probably start long before that tonight. “You’ve got to play it for a lot of reasons,” Edwards said. “You owe it to the fans and the players who have been here since the (offseason). For me, it’s a fun game to watch the young guys. Some are sitting on the fence.”

One question on the last point. Who the hell managed to get a ticket for 30 bucks?

I'd like to see Croyle and Printers each get at least one series with the #1 offense

Agreed. That would be nice. Personally, I want them to rest Green the entire game and start out with Croyle. I see them starting Huard for some reason though.

I called down to Giants Stadium when the Chiefs played there a couple weeks ago and the lady said tickets were from $60 on up. I said "yeah right..."

I think we will see alot of Croyle tonight. They got to see Printers early so im guessing Brodie will be in for at least a half if not 3 quarters. That right there gives me reason to watch.

Sims ought to be.

We've seen enough of Printers that I don't think there's much more to be learned at this point. I'd like to see Croyle get some more time.

I think Croyle showed some flashes last time out, and did alright for his first time out. It would be interesting to see how he performs this time and how well he learned from his struggles Saturday night.

I agree. His passes looked really good and I loved the fact that he was aggressive... took shots down the field. His deep out passes were perfect. Too bad the receivers he was throwing to couldn't hang on to the ball. :-/

Sims ought to be.

Why?

It never ceases to amaze me how many people think we should just trot into the season without enough people on the roster, regardless of how bad they suck...

...Just commenting on his suckage that's all; the guy has been a near complete bust.

And we still NEED him. Can't go into the season with 3 defensive tackles...

I agree, I just wish he was someone who could actually play the position.

Somebody who paid too much. I've never paid anything for preseason tixs.

I would prefer to see Trent on the sidelines in street clothes. Heck, LJ too.

Also want to see Croyle with the 1's and have him toss a couple to Gonzales.

Are Pollard and Paige supposed to play alot tonight like in the past or are they gonna be sidelined after the first half since they already made the team? Hopefully, they play the whole game to get experience so they can quickly replace So Slow Sammy and that other knucklehead back there.
