View Full Version : Is Brodie Croyle tough enough to survive the Herm Era?

Brodie is already out, could be out for a couple of weeks. I seriously question whether or not this young man can handle the week-in, week-out abuse that the NFL's defensive players are going to inflict on him. We've got Humpty Dumpty when we need Chuck Rambo McClain, long lost twin of Conan Seagal Favre.

I want a tough badass as my quarterback, and I'm more than concerned that we've got a guy that will maybe make 50% of his scheduled starts, and not even the love of a good woman is gonna change that.

QB is a tough position on any team . .the real question is Brodie tough enough for the NFL. . the guy is real small and real fragile. .

He toughed it out to finish the game, that should count for something. :shrug:

The more important question is: Will Chiefsplanet survive Herm?

He's definitely tough enough, Mr. Braincase. In the long run, this injury is probably a good thing. He'll learn to protect himself a little more and live to fight another day.

It's really a shame that he's gotten marked as "injury prone". You could say the same thing about Trent or Priest when they came to KC ... or a hundred other players who are currently active, for that matter.

I have an idea. Let's get him an offensive line that can block a granny.

I concur. And let's get him an offensive coordinator as well.

Uh.... hello?

Croyle was injured scrambling for a 4 yard gain, not a sack. It had nothing to do with Herman Edwards or the OL.

Does anyone know if the knee in his back from a Raider was intentional or just an accident during play.

when we fix the line next year he should be alright, if he makes it to next year and we don't bring a veteran qb in

I think Brodie will be fine.

The bigger question is ... has Herm ever had a QB that played a full season. I think not, but havent done the research. If not, then perhaps its no coincidence.

Think about it 7 years of Head coaching and never had a QB play a full season. Pennington is a tough dude, Trent was bullet proof untill Herm got here, Damon...well...maybe thats not a good example.

Maybe it is the style of O or the lack of style on O.
Hmmmm.

There are some fears that are best left unspoken, Mr. cfl.

Shouldn't we have expected this? Being made of glass was pretty much his #1 knock coming out of college...he gets hurt if you breathe on him wrong.

I have reviewed the play at least 10 times and 7 or 8 of those times in slow motion, but even in slow motion you would not believe how fast it happened. Two linebackers kneed him in the back as he slid to a stop.

Croyle played a full season with a dislocated left shoulder.

One thing is for certain he doesn't take a phantom sack like somebody we know.
