Casey Printers could be headed back to the Canadian Football League after being cut by the Kansas City Chiefs.

And the most likely destination could be his former CFL team, the B.C. Lions, who are playing with their third-string quarterback following injuries to their first two.

According to Vancouver radio station CKNW, the Chiefs cut Printers, who declined a spot on the practice roster.

Printers, voted the CFL's Most Outstanding Player in 2004, will go on the 24-hour waiver wire on Saturday. CKNW is reporting that Printers wants to sign with an NFL team by next week, but if that doesn't materialize he could return to the CFL.

He last played in the CFL with the Lions in 2005.

With Dave Dickenson sidelined indefinitely with concussion-like symptoms and backup Buck Pierce nursing a separated shoulder along with injuries to his ribs and toe, the Lions are starting Jarious Jackson.

The only other team that could afford to bid for Printers would be the Hamilton Tiger-Cats where Jason Maas has lost his starting job to Timmy Chang.

HOLY SHIT.

First blindside of the preseason.

The guy looked 100 times better this preseason than he did last preseason, and performed better than any QB this preseason -- which, granted, isn't say much.

That must mean they have a lot of faith in ol' Princeton.

Geeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez, I don't like this. It's only 3rd string QB so I'm not stomping my feet, but I liked having a QB with some mobility.

Just direct snap to LJ. With the Ole' line in front and WR that can't catch passes that hit them in their hands, there's no sense in wasting any QB on this team.

It's not hard to figure out what happened. The Chiefs wanted to keep Casey, but they wanted to sign Leftwich, too. So they wanted Casey to agree to join the practice squad. He declined.

Strange, Ross fumbles much more that Printers but people here want to keep him.

I still think the center short snapped that ball in the Cleveland game trying to get into his block too damn fast from when I watched the game on NFL Network. So did Len when he was calling the game on the radio.
I have no idea what Printers did in camp since I don't watch HBO, so if he had problems with the 2nd/3rd string centers I missed it.

I do think, all in all, Printers was our best QB during the preseason. Huard looked putrid and Croyle made the mistakes I was expecting. Terrell can't even stay on his feet coming out of center and was damn near Plummeresque with that INT in St. Louis.

Of course, if Casey was our best QB . . . we're in seriously deep doodoo. :cuss: :banghead:

this is absof*ckinglutely retarded. Decisions like this make me embarrassed to be a Chiefs fan. We cut the QB who has performed the best in the entire pre-season, the only one who shows a modicum of mobility behind this swiss cheese line. F*ck these f*cking cocksuckers.

Watch them cut the wide receiver who has performed the best (Hannon) and a solid backup guard (Stallings) tomorrow.

If the Chiefs dump Hannon in favor of Parker, I'm gonna be livid.

You're right. The preseason has ALWAYS determined the success of football teams in the regular season. Especially quarterbacks.

Give me the option of being a QB on a practice squad in the NFL (an option that virtually assures me that I'll never play a down except in preseason) or the option of playing real games in Canada, I'll pack up my gear and head north in a Vancouver minute.

OTA's, training camp and the classroom. Oh, and progress after 18 months in said program.

Other than that, who knows? Maybe the guy's a drunk. Maybe he's one taco short of a combo plate. Maybe he's got ADHD.

All I know is what I've seen: A bumbling QB who can't hold onto the ball, let alone direct a scoring drive.

I have no earthly idea why they're keeping Parker.


As for Printers, I haven't seen anything at any point on the field that makes me think he's an NFL QB. The way they described him on Hard Knocks is exactly how he is: good play one second; turnover the next.

Ironically, there's people on here bitching about this cut who blast Brodie Croyle for exactly the same thing.

The difference between the two right now: one's a draft pick. Draft picks get more chances.

I don't think anyone is really thinking he is more deserving. Just the timing of it and the fact that he is leaps and bounds better than last year. Seems strange they would keep him when he sucked and ditch him when he was MUCH better.

Silock
09-01-2007, 04:22 AM
Sure, he's better, but if our first two options go down, and he just cannot play in this league, I'd rather have someone that is at least marginally capable of running the offense.

Croyle lost the starting job by his interceptions. Printers lost a place on the team with his mishandling of snaps. I think that is the final line.

If Terrell becomes the QB we will have a team dominated by left handers at the skill positions.

Agreed. I was fooled by Carl once again. I honestly believed he could rebuild a team with youth for once (Primarily at QB). But the man just cant do it. He panicked at the last second once he heard the Arrowhead boo birds and got visions of empty seats in October.

WOW, a 3rd Stringer gets cut and Chiefsplanet implodes... how ridicuous is this...

So, you would rather have fumbing Printers @ 3rd Stringer (who would never see the field anyway) or somebody else who has been a starter in this league that might be able to produce for this team...

Unreal... Call me crazy but Im with Htismaqe on this one...

Who cares if he is the most improved QB, he still can't handle playing vs 3rd or 4th string defenses...

Its the same argument for Boomer for crying out loud... he is the most improved FB, (because it is brand new to him)...

Because it will make Croyle the No. 3 and further stunt his development.

For the folks who think Croyle has already proved he won't be anything more than a No. 3 in this league, if that, then this won't bother them. Me, I'd like to see him play regularly to determine if he's worth keeping in 2008 and beyond, or whether we need to look for another QB in the draft in 08.

I'm also not interested in bringing in people just to get us to 8-8 or 9-7 this year. Again, that's a philosophical difference with many here. But those are the biggest reasons why I don't like cutting Printers and bringing in somebody who might push Croyle down the depth chart.

If we're just going to bring in another No. 3, then I have to ask: Will he really be better than Printers? I suppose he could, but from what I saw this preseason Printers was one of the most-improved Chiefs. I think he deserved the spot. I think that effort should be rewarded. Unless there was something we don't know, such as a character issue (he blew up at a coach or something).

Yeah, its almost the same as Rod Gardner. They both had great camps, did what was asked of them, and got cut just because they weren't in the team's long-term plans. Its tough, but that's the way the league works.

Of course they do. Look at what they've done with the roster. We are a lot younger now. I know starting Huard seems like it isn't a long term plan, but I think they still see Croyle as the QBOTF and that he just didn't step it up when he had the chance to show he was ready.

I think if we bring someone in (if they are a true #1), you will see croyle as the #2, Huard will be number 3...

We only signed Huard to a 1 year contract right... If the #1 option we aquire does not pan out in the first 8 games, we let Brodie fight it out at the end of the season to see if he is worthy of playing for the 1st team... if not, we keep #1 next year, draft a R1 QB and cut Croyle/Huard or keep them as a #3...

If #1 pans out and is young, we wont have to spend a R1 on a QB and leave croyle @ #2 learning the offense...

Croyle=brain dead hillbilly who holds onto the ball way too long, and throws the ball stright to the other team eliminating opportunities for the teams best player - colquitt

Printers=brain dead cuyahuggie who drops the ball one out of every five snaps - eliminating opportunities for our teams best player.

Terrell=genius with a noodle arm, who doesn't throw the swing passes too hard, plus he is a lefty so he will be facing the bad side of our line when mcintosh gets hurt again.

Huard - Herm loves the show "Friends" thinks chandler reminds him of himself when he was younger. Doesn't throw picks.

Leftwich- Big strong formerly mobile qb who can stand in there and take a hit, and curl up and hold onto the ball. something our qb is going to need with the weak ass pass protection.

[edit] Professional career

[edit] NFL Draft Day 2003
At the 2003 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings and Baltimore Ravens agreed to a trade to move the Ravens into position to take Leftwich. However, one of the teams had second thoughts at the last minute and the Vikings missed their pick. The Jaguars took Leftwich with the 7th overall pick.


[edit] 2003 Season
Leftwich took over as the Jaguars starting quarterback in game four of his rookie year after Mark Brunell was injured in the previous week's matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.


[edit] 2005 Season
For the first 11 games of the 2005 regular season, Leftwich was developing into the quarterback the Jaguars believed he would become when they picked him in the first round of the 2003 NFL Draft. He obtained a passer rating of 89.3, ninth-best in the NFL, and a 3:1 touchdown:interception ratio (15:5).

However in the regular season against the Arizona Cardinals, Leftwich suffered a broken ankle after being sacked by Cardinals' safety Adrian Wilson on the first play of the game. Leftwich missed the remaining five games of the regular season. He returned against the New England Patriots in the AFC Wild Card round of the playoffs. The Patriots won 28-3.


[edit] 2006 Season
Leftwich entered his fourth NFL season as the Jaguars starting quarterback. He entered the season without veteran wide receiver Jimmy Smith, who retired suddenly in May 2006. Leftwich led the Jaguars to victories on national television in consecutive weeks against the favored Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers to begin the 2006 season. Leftwich sustained an injury to his ankle after 5 games and has yet to return to the Jaguars lineup. In November, Leftwich had surgery on the injured ankle. The surgery forced the Jaguars to move Leftwich to their injured reserves, effectively ending his season.

In February of 2007, the Jaguars decided to formally name Leftwich the team's starter, favoring him instead of David Garrard or Quinn Gray. The decision was speculated to be due to the infusion of a heavy play-action offense for the 2007 season, which suits Leftwich's passing abilities greatly.


[edit] 2007 Season
After a highly successful training camp but disappointing pre-season during which his backup excelled, Leftwich was displaced from the Jaguars roster before the first game of 2007. David Garrard was named the starting quarterback for the Jaguars on August 31, 2007, with the team stating that Leftwich would be either cut or traded.
