Stanzi, Quinn ready to compete for job as Chiefs’ No. 2 QB (http://www.kansascity.com/2012/06/04/3642191/stanzi-quinn-ready-to-compete.html)
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star

Ricky Stanzi was drafted by the Chiefs last year, but he said there are times when he still feels like a rookie. This is his first time with the luxury of participating in the team’s offseason program, having lost the experience to the NFL lockout last season.

Brady Quinn is the veteran among the Chiefs’ reserve quarterbacks but indicated there are times when he feels like a rookie again. He signed as a free agent with the Chiefs in March and acknowledged that occasional new-team feeling.

The Chiefs need one of them to age soon. They’ll have to make a decision on Matt Cassel’s top backup before the Sept. 9 season opener against Atlanta at Arrowhead Stadium.

Coach Romeo Crennel said recently Quinn was ahead of Stanzi, not surprising given Quinn is more experienced and once played in Cleveland for Chiefs offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

But it hasn’t all been smooth for Quinn, a first-round draft pick by the Browns in 2007 when Crennel was their head coach. Quinn hasn’t taken a snap in an NFL game since 2009.

“Any time you have to go and learn a new system, that can be an adjustment for you on top of having to learn new personnel,” Quinn said. “Fortunately for me, I have some familiarity with the offense being that I was with Brian in 2009. That’s helped out a lot.

“I’m just trying to get a lot of work in and trying to get the fundamentals down right now. I’m trying to get adjusted to some of the different wide receivers I’m on the field with. Everybody is still new to me and I’m still trying to get used to how they get in and out of cuts, their body language, things like that.”

Quinn and Stanzi are rotating by practice session as the No. 2 quarterback. Monday was Quinn’s turn, with Stanzi finishing each drill as the No. 3 passer.

Neither was particularly sharp. Both threw an interception — Quinn to rookie safety Tysyn Hartman, and Stanzi to veteran Travis Daniels.

Their battle won’t become intense until training camp begins next month in St. Joseph. Stanzi said he will be better able to compete for a job than he was last year, when he arrived at camp after the lockout ended and without the benefit of the spring practice that he’s getting now.

“You have to feel more comfortable now than last year, just having the offseason,” Stanzi said. “It was tough to come in at any rookie position and to have to go right into camp.

“It was nice to have this offseason to get onto the playbook and look at all the formations and different things that are special to this offense and then to just go out there and get (snaps) before actual training camp. That simple combination makes a huge difference, when you’re able to go out there and play things out and get a feel for what the offense is mentally before you go out there and do it physically.

“It definitely feels more like a rookie year should feel. You’re just more aware and you know more people on the team with this being the second year. Not having the offseason last year was just a different thing you had to adjust to.”

Stanzi was the third quarterback for much of the season before becoming the primary backup to Kyle Orton late in the season. In either case, Stanzi didn’t play in a game, so it could take him some time in the preseason to get used to game speed again.

“Maybe a little bit, but you just have to adjust,” Stanzi said. “It will be something minor if you make it minor in your head. It can be something big if you make it big. You just have to keep in focus what you’re trying to accomplish.”

We're also about two years ahead of the curve on reaching a final and irrevocable decision that Cassel sucks.

Im not sure u could know that Cassel sucked the day he was traded for. You could definitely have an inkling that he wouldn't live up to the hype, given the situation he was in while in NE. You and I and many others here had that inkling. Cassel was at the point where he just hadn't been evaluated enough as a player. But Pioli really ****ed it up. If anyone had seen enough of him it was Pioli. He got to see him every day in practice. Plus Cassel never even started a game in college. Wasn't even 2nd string FFS

Pioli has been very suspect to this point and I feel he is probably our biggest concern.

That being said, when did Pioli claim there would be an open QB competition?

I know he said he wanted some competition at the QB position, I don't remember ever reading that the starting QB position was open for competition.

I do remember reading quotes where he said Casshole was the starter.............

So I am not sure where all this Pioli is a liar stuff that I keep reading is coming from.

Because he isn't doing what you want him to do doesn't make him a liar, he may be an idiot though.

he said Casshole was the starter.This is what he said.

You can say Cassel is the starter and STILL have an open competition. Essentially saying its his job to lose.

I recall Cassel even talking about being open to competition.

So far, Pioli is a liar.

6 weeks until training camp. I guess we'll see what happens.

Big day approaching for injured Chiefs

Some news from today's Chiefs practice:

1. Running back Jamaal Charles, tight end Tony Moeaki and safety Eric Berry all suffered similar injuries, torn knee ligaments, near the start of last season and now all could soon be cleared to play. Coach Romeo Crennel said they would be examined by doctors on June 18 and cleared to participate in training camp, if all goes well. None have participated in off-season practices and instead are working mostly off the side with a strength coach.

2. The news for injured tight end Martin Rucker of St. Joseph and Missouri is not good. Rucker is facing the likelihood of surgery for a torn ACL. He was injured in practice last week.

3. Most of full-team drills were spent with the offense working inside the opposing 20-yard line. The Chiefs were last in the NFL in scoring-zone offense last year, getting a touchdown just 33 percent of the time. Each of the three veteran quarterbacks, Matt Cassel, Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi, threw a touchdown pass during the drill.

4. Two draft picks, second-round guard Jeff Allen and sixth-round running back Cyrus Gray, returned to practice after they missed time with injuries. Allen had a ankle injury, Gray a sore hamstring.

Play of the Day

Travis Daniels is having a repeat of his 2010 offseason when he seemed to tally an interception during every practice session. The veteran cornerback, who has moved to free safety for OTAs, is wreaking havoc on quarterbacks in practices again this offseason.

After notching a pick-six off Ricky Stanzi on Monday, Daniels was back at it again with a Red Zone interception off Matt Cassel on Thursday.

Overall, however, it was a day for the offense. Cassel, Stanzi and Brady Quinn each connected on Red Zone touchdown passes during competitive work against the defense and Cassel added another touchdown with his feet on a bootleg that fooled most every defender.

Quarterbacks are measured on victories. That’s one of the reason why new Kansas City offensive coordinator Brian Daboll believes in Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel.

Daboll points to Cassel’s 11-win season in New England in 2008 (when he spelled an injured Tom Brady) and his 10-win season in 2010 as evidence that Cassel is and can continue be an effective NFL quarterback.

“He’s been a winner,” Daboll told reporters in Kansas City of Cassel on Thursday. “He’s had two 10-plus win seasons. I did a study just this offseason about 10-plus-win quarterbacks, which is what you’re defined by, obviously. There’s been nine of them in the last four years that have had two or more 10-plus win seasons in the regular season, and Matt is one of them. The other ones being Brady, (Drew) Brees, (Aaron) Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli (Manning), (Joe) Flacco, (Matt) Ryan, so he’s been a winner. He works his tail off in the classroom. I think he’s done a good job in these OTAs, and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

We have heard these guys say Dilfer, Brad Johnson, Jeff Hostedler, brought up that 2008 season more times than I can count and act like the guy beat good teams in 2010.

They don't even acknowledge the two years that he has been completely terrible.
