Why won't we keep all three guys on the roster? I can't help but think Cassel will play better when he's throwing to guys who catch the ball, Thigpen would be a great wildcat QB to use a few times a game, and no one here can argue that Brodie would be the best 3rd string QB in the league. I just don't see us trading or getting rid of any of these guys until Cassel actually proves himself in the regular season and I don't think there's anyone out there that would be a better 2nd or 3rd string QB to pick up.

I love how people dismiss this as if it's blasphemy. Thigpen put up numbers last year in 2-14 KC that weren't that far off the mark from what Cassel was doing with Moss and Welker in New England.

I'm not ready to make the leap to "he should be the starter", but let's not pretend that it's an absurd position to take. Cassel has plenty to prove. Can he do it without the surrounding cast?

cause his passes wobble like a wounded duck, cause he's about as accurate as dick cheney, cause he can't run a pro offense.

i'd like to keep him around as a third stringer let him develop and see what he has in 2-3 years. no way does he start, unless you want to run the spread all the time.

I would be happy to stay around and trade insults with you but I'm tired. Didn't Orton just throw like 3 picks in his opener as a Donkey? At least Thiggy should have some upside one year in the league that he's played...Ortons been in a few years hasn't he? Oh yea you guys traded Whiny Jayc for him so he's got to be good....yeah right!

I agree. People say last year we were a joke on offense because of Thigpen, then in the next sentence they say Cassel may have a bad year because he has no one to throw to.

Well, last year Thigpen was the QB for a team that went 4-12 and finished the previous season with 9 losses in a row. Cassel was the QB on a team that went 16-0 the previous season.

I say people should remember all the games we were in at the end, when the defense just pissed itself. But, since I just don't blindly agree, I must be an idiot.

Thigpen has accuracy issues.
He has difficulty playing from under center.

But the fact is, he's a gamer.

He might develop into starter material in time, but, for now, he's not a bad backup option for a couple games.

He's a scrub QB who will never be anything more than a scrub QB.

Maybe Orton was told to be very aggressive and get the ball out of his hands quickly. I know last year Orton wouldn't attempt half of the throws he did the other night. By the time the regular season starts McDaniels will know what plays he can or can't call for Orton... Just like he did with Cassel last season.

That's right. Last year Orton was told to do nothing more than not fuck up.

McDaniels wants a QB to WIN games for him. You know like 50 TD Tom Brady?
Orton is nothing more than an average game manager. NOT what McDaniels needs to make his O work.

I'm not sure why there's a QB debate in KC. It's pretty obvious what will happen.

Cassel is the guy. Croyle will be #2 and Thigpen will be #3, technically, but I doubt Haley would hesitate to try either in a real game if Cassel gets hurt. Gutierrez will get cut and end up on your practics squad.

I severely doubt Haley is going to trade away Croyle or Thigpen. First, he won't get much. Second, they want to make sure Cassel is the real deal. Third, they want to make sure Croyle and/or Thigpen aren't. You've got two guys with solid starter's experience in Cassel and Thigpen, and a guy with promising (albeit fragile) talent in Croyle. Why the hell would you drop one for what would probably be a 5th-round draft pick or something? :shrug:

Rich Gannon was a wobble launcher with good wheels, but he was also an accurate wobble launcher.

If he could accurately launch his wobbles, he'd be a pretty damn good QB.

I'm not ready to make the leap to "he should be the starter", but let's not pretend that it's an absurd position to take.

Oh, it is.

It's completely absurd.

Thigpen started camp as #2 and once Haley saw he couldn't hit the broadside of a barn, Croyle took that spot overnight.

Now he's battling Matt fucking Gutierrez.

Couldn't have worked out more perfectly.

I agree. People say last year we were a joke on offense because of Thigpen, then in the next sentence they say Cassel may have a bad year because he has no one to throw to.

Well, last year Thigpen was the QB for a team that went 4-12 and finished the previous season with 9 losses in a row. Cassel was the QB on a team that went 16-0 the previous season.

I say people should remember all the games we were in at the end, when the defense just pissed itself. But, since I just don't blindly agree, I must be an idiot.

umm, thiggy had tony g last year. our best young receiver was on the bench while the first team was out there last night. thiggy won ONE game as a starter. the team was 2-14 last year. granted the defense was a joke, but so was the pistol offense. what i remember about last season was not being able to put together a long sustained drive to put the game away, and the defense wearing out from taking so many snaps. (well that and generally sucking because of the damn cover 2)

There's a huge difference between Grbac and Thigpen.

GrBac had the talent, but had no heart.

Thigpen is a gamer.

He may never be a protoypical QB, but with hard work, he may some day be a QB who can win you some games.

With decent QB play, especially in the 2nd half, they would have won 6 games last year.

The guy had a sub-50% completion percentage in the 4th quarter, FFS.

He can contribute to this team in some ways. Whether it's wildcat formations, using him as a part of the offense in some ways, somehow...much like the Kordells of the world, and the Randle Els of the world brought to their respective teams...Teams like Pittsburgh were smart because they took advantage of their strengths and utilized those players effectively. I hope the chiefs do something similar with Thigpen because I really believe it would work.

Lets be honest with each other here, the real reason imo why they won 2 games last year was mainly because there defense was terrible.

I don't think so either. Gailey is definately creative. Haleys playcalling last year for Zona leads me to believe we will see a difference of day and night between him and Herm.

Offense is the least of my concerns on this team. Even though they played pretty bad last night, I still think they'll be fine there. they have some gamers and good experience there to go along with some pretty good coaches.

Defense is where im worried. lots of question marks..how is this team and the players on D going to respond to the transition to a 3-4?

Im not sold on Hali even despite the fact I've heard good things about him, I think he is going to be a liability in pass coverage. Same thing with Vrabel. Our pass rush is real question mark...Can Hali rush the QB from the OLB spot? No "real" NT on this team, has me worried..Team are gonna gash us up the middle. Ron Edwards? Nah...He ain't the answer. Id rather take my chances with Tank Tyler and see how he does over time.

Really worried about Dorsey. He's getting pushed around too easily, he's got a long way to go. Our linebackers are very questionable, Thomas is old, but I still think he is going to give this team something. How will DJ respond? Only time will tell.

*Too many players are being asked to perform new roles..And that really has me concerned. A lot of times your better off finding players who fit schemes rather then taking your chances with players who are unproven in specific schemes and asking them to do new things.

*Have a good feeling about Tyson Jackson, Magee, I think our ends will be fine. Our secondary is pretty good, just need more consistency from the safeties. We need some guys to surprise and thats asking for a lot.

1. I'm not worried. I know he's inaccurate as fuck and nothing is going to change that, so why worry?
2. That's a huge "just," one that should mean that he won't keep a roster spot. Counting on Croyle to do anything more than get hurt is maybe the worst decision the KC FO could make.

The thing most seem to forget is that when playing against 3rd and 4th string he is also playing "with" 3rd and 4th string talent. As far as who starts for KC I really do not care.

He absolutely has worth to this or any offense. (and not just to fetch water or towles)

He can be a special situations guy. With his speed he can really fake out some defenses. His arm is not accurate but he throws decent mid range passes of less than 20 yards, especially on the run.

I agree with the first part. But Grbac was weak, not aggressive. Not at all comparable to Brodie. I don't think they can be compared at all. Grbac has a fairly extensive shot and just stunk, too passive. Brodie is not passive with the ball. He's aggressive, going down the field. The chiefs were mediocre at best with Grbac, they didn't have a good offense. Gannon made them good, just like he did with Oakland and Oakland has been crap since he left. He carried a leadership about him that was made whatever offense he was running better. In my eyes (apart from the injury problem) when Brodie comes in the offense brightens up. But then again, we've had so little to actually watch him to see what he can do and that is a problem. Just saying. I don't see thigpen with any of the abilities that Gannon had apart from running.

The problem with Brodie is the biggest probablility we have with him is that he WILL get hurt at some point and not be able to play. A starting QB that isn't quite as good but able to play every snap is better in the long run IMO.

Brodie would be a great QB behind a HOF OL. Anything less and I fear he wouldn't make it through the season.

The very last thing this team needs is a QB controversy. 60 million dollars agrees with me. If Cassel isn't under center on opening day, this franchise is going to look like a circus. I don't think anyone expected Croyle to have a nice game last night. The net 2 weeks should prove interesting ...

I totally hope I'm wrong, but Cassel's demeanor reminds me of Grbac, which scares me. If he turn's out to be mediocre, we need a quarterback.

Cassel had two scrubs at receiver. Croyle got Bowe and played against more 2nd-stringers. Cassel's getting a bazillion dollars.

Cassel would have to go through the first four games throwing <50% completion, with about 125 YPG, and 3 TDs vs. 12 INTs, before Haley even CONSIDERS yanking him. Even with those numbers, Cassel would have to clearly demonstrate that he's the problem (not his WRs or blocking or whatever).

His demeanor? What the f**k? This kid hadn't started a game since high school, and came off the bench ice-cold after years of rust to replace the Best Quarterback In The NFL (sorry, Peyton) on a team that had Super Bowl aspirations. And not only did Cassel not sh*t his pants, he improved with every game and led his team to 11 wins. That's his "demeanor".

It has been written by pundits wiser than me, but I'll say it again: Cassel won those games. Despite the talent level on the Patriots, you DO NOT just roll ANYONE out at quarterback and win in the NFL. By the end of last season, Cassel had gone from "OMG get this bum off the team, he sucks" to "Wow, Cassel looks almost Brady-like, maybe we should franchise him and keep him here".

I know you guys are impatient for success but, Jesus H. on a f**king raft... Five minutes in the first preseason game on a new team with a new coach and unfamiliar players, and this sh*t is bubbling up?

Croyle proved to be made of glass. That's why he wasn't handed the starter's job. Thigpen played admirably given the circumstances, and may or may not turn into a decent NFL quarterback, but they saw fit to go get Cassel.

Let. The. Kid. Play. For at least a season. Hell, at least a game or two, for real.

This kid hadn't started a game since high school, and came off the bench ice-cold after years of rust to replace the Best Quarterback In The NFL (sorry, Peyton) on a team that had Super Bowl aspirations. And not only did Cassel not sh*t his pants, he improved with every game and led his team to 11 wins. That's his "demeanor".

It has been written by pundits wiser than me, but I'll say it again: Cassel won those games. Despite the talent level on the Patriots, you DO NOT just roll ANYONE out at quarterback and win in the NFL. By the end of last season, Cassel had gone from "OMG get this bum off the team, he sucks" to "Wow, Cassel looks almost Brady-like, maybe we should franchise him and keep him here".

I know you guys are impatient for success but, Jesus H. on a f**king raft... Five minutes in the first preseason game on a new team with a new coach and unfamiliar players, and this sh*t is bubbling up?

Croyle proved to be made of glass. That's why he wasn't handed the starter's job. Thigpen played admirably given the circumstances, and may or may not turn into a decent NFL quarterback, but they saw fit to go get Cassel.

Let. The. Kid. Play. For at least a season. Hell, at least a game or two, for real.

Screw it, give him back to us, and we'll send you Walter. :)

THIS is the smartest post I have ever read by you sir.. Remind me to rep you tomorrow.

baha one pre-season game and the people are comparing Cassel to Grbac and saying Thigpen should be the starter.

People are frickin' idiots.

Cassel is a great teammate.

I haven't been around him, and some of you guys have had the opportunity to I'm sure at camp. But he seems passive to me. That is not to take anything away from what he accomplished last year. I'm not against him, just for the best guy to play. I hate how fragile Croyle has been.

Maybe Cassel and Grbac are polar opposites, I hope so for sure. All I really know about him is what I've read on the planet. All that I've heard from him seems passive. I don't claim to know this for a fact....I really don't know anything solid about him and don't necessarily think you do either. I've read all the stuff you wrote about before and say kudos to him.

He looked crazy nervous to me last night....not take charge like.

With decent QB play, especially in the 2nd half, they would have won 6 games last year.

The guy had a sub-50% completion percentage in the 4th quarter, FFS.

Go back and look at how many games were still tight in the 4th, and tell me that better QB play wouldn't have translated to more wins.

you could put defense in place of QB and have the same answer

well it was kind of a cross-thread conversation. I just said that I really don't know anything directly about him, but his demeanor reminded me of Grbac and the scenario if he turns out to be mediocre, but starts while other, better players sit then it would not fair. Some others in other threads were comparing thigpen to gannon and croyle to grbac...yada..yada. He has seemed passive to me, but I was corrected by GoChiefs and told that they were polar opposites which I was glad to hear. I want them to give him a better opportunity to be more aggressive in the next few games and to show his stuff instead of looking like a deer in headlights. Brodie played better....bla, bla, bla...now you're caught up.

After a preseason game? First half of the first preseason game and some clown on a Patriots site posts this:

So when is BB gonna man up and fire D.Pees?

Now, the Patriots starters only gave up 2 field goals, and the team was ahead 21-6 at the half, and some clown had already called for the defensive coordinator to be fired.

Sadly, every fan base has its share of idiots.

That first out pass he threw was beautiful. Perfect spiral, perfectly on target.

No doubt in my mind right now that Cassel is the best QB option in the long run, but man Croyle did look really good last night. But like I said, anything less than a HOF OL and I don't see him making it through a season.

Yeah, and we've attracted a lot of pink-hatters to the Patriots fanbase, with the success of this decade. In a way, I liked it better when we sucked, and Patriots fans were few and far between. And no one expected anything of our team, 'cause we sucked. And tickets were easy to get, 'cause the stadium was always half-empty... wait, on second thought, I'll deal with the pink-hatters, LOL.

The Pats were toying with the 4-3 against the Eagles. Not to mention they held out a sh*tload of starters. My main concern was that Brady exited the game walking under his own power; aside from that, I really could care less how it went...

Should Thigpen be the starter? No, Cassel's got way too much greenbacks behind him to make Thigpen the starter.
Is Thigpen a reliable backup that can kickstart an offense and keep it on track? Yes.

What most of the people here have against Thigpen is absolutely beyond me. He's a solid backup and that's all he should be viewed as. I get the feeling people here dislike Thigpen so much to the point he probably did something to their mother.

Thigpen = backup. That's it.

I love how people dismiss this as if it's blasphemy. Thigpen put up numbers last year in 2-14 KC that weren't that far off the mark from what Cassel was doing with Moss and Welker in New England.

I'm not ready to make the leap to "he should be the starter", but let's not pretend that it's an absurd position to take. Cassel has plenty to prove. Can he do it without the surrounding cast?

You must be a teenage virgin living in your mothers basement. You really make watching the Donks get beat much more fun.

Cassel has started just 15 games since HS and his performance on the field is significantly better than Orton's. Explain to me how that makes Orton just as good or better?

Rich Gannon was a wobble launcher with good wheels, but he was also an accurate wobble launcher.

That is where Thigpen struggles.

If he could accurately launch his wobbles, he'd be a pretty damn good QB.

Good comparison, Rich Gannon arm sucked so bad for the Vikings his early years he retired. He didn't become an accurate wobble launcher until 30. I think Thigpen has Rich Gannon type talent, but it will take another 3+ years before it can be realized. He definitely has the determination.

As far as Thigpen; he can scramble when under pressure, that is for certain. But, IMO he shouldn't start. I'm curious to see what Cassel has to offer.
