And since we've gotten no information about Flowers and his injury I really don't expect him to play? What about Lewis? Why can't these fuckers just give us a time table on our injured players?

options to avoid this potential mess week 1:

should have kept Carr
should have gave up a 7th for Asante Samuel
should have gave up a 2nd and whatever for Vontae Davis
should have called him our man Jon McGraw
should not being playing Jalil Brown.... ever

they already missed 3 of them. still have a chance on 2. there is hope!

Pretty much. People need to stop making excuses for Stanzi. They did the same thing for Croyle. This has nothing to do with Quinn being the predetermined back up and everything to do with Stanzi just not being a great QB.

People can make excuse after excuse, but it all boils down to results, and Stanzi just didn't produce.

I don't think a lot of people are arguing that.


Most of us just hate Cassel so much that we might as well at least try something else. What's the point of going 10-6 with a 1st round exit? I believe that is Cassel's ceiling, so why even bother?

There is a somewhat unknown quality about Stanzi that maybe 1% chance he works out. That is better odds than what Cassel brings to the table.

This team's philosophy is never going to be a "well, let's play this unknown guy, and if we lose 15 games, we'll draft a QB."

Pioli is going to continue to build the roster, and I'm guessing he'll never trade up too far for a QB in the first round, either. My guess is they are going to wait for another Aaron Rodgers to fall to them in the 20's. When he does, he will already be surrounded by a good team, and the jump to SB contenders will be virtually immediate.

It's a philosophy, I'll give him that. Not sure I agree. I think it's kid of like buying all of your materials and waiting around for the contractor to show up. You can't build the house without the contractor, so get him first.

Still, expect this team to not go below 7 wins and just wait for a good QB prospect to fall to us in the draft. But until we get a legit QB, don't expect a playoff win.

Sad.

I don't believe I have ever heard it stated this way, but agree with it. And I am not sure I disagree with the philosophy either. If you bring in a year 1 starter with crap around him, you could ruin him for his career. If you bring in a year 1 starter with a good team around him, you could make his career.

I would have liked for them to have played the last ps game before making a decision, but I understand them making the decision to go with Quinn as the 2.

Stanzi simply hasn't shown enough to win the job.

I think it was Quinns job to lose from the moment he signed and that

A) Quinn didn't make enough mistakes to lose the job

B) Stanzi didn't do enough to win it.

Go with Quinn, then draft a first round QB next April. But Stanzi still deserves to stick around. He's got time to fix shit.

If he still looks just as bad at this time next year, THEN you can talk about ditching him and signing a veteran.

As far as QB decisions go, Pioli has only disappointed me twice. I wanted a veteran last year and he didn't get one until it was to late. That was dumb but I thinked he learned his lesson about listening to the HC to much about personnel. The second thing is that he didn't draft a QB at all this year. In the weeks before the draft he talked about Ted Thompson, the Packers GM, and how he tried to draft a QB every single year. He talked about how much the strategy had paid off for Ted. Then, he went out and didn't draft a QB.... I was like WTF?

I do believe it's a QB driven league and it's probably going to take time. However, I do think Cassel is as good as Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer, and Rex Grossman. He's not that far off from Gannon or Delhomme either.

I am 100% against drafting a QB in the first round just for the sake of drafting a first round QB. He needs to be a good prospect. Otherwise, you wind up with Carr, Quinn, Smith, Russell, or Sanchez.

I think the taking a QB a year strategy will eventually work. We just have to do it.

I think some are overreacting about Cassel and I am seeing improvement for sure. I think he will be starting here for a while.

The one thing we have going for us this season is that even with Cassel at QB you will have a legitimate shot at winning a playoff game this season. In the AFC after Baltimore and NE there really isn't anyone that scares you too much. As long as you can avoid them in the first round, no matter who is playing the first weekend, all the teams will be pretty equal. Houston would be just below the top two and just above the rest.

Houston can play with anyone. They might be the best top to bottom team in the AFC. They had Baltimore in the playoff game. If it weren't for a fumbled punt - they would have won. Their defense was the best on the field that day. They are very good and IF they get home field, and they just might by virtue of their division, they could go all the way.

handcuffs! being told to learn from Cassel. The most important thing is not to turn the ball over.

He didn't even look like the same player he was last year. I think it is possible QB play is like a lot of other things, where it is better to play relaxed and with confidence, instead of fear of screwing up.

Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer had similar physical limitations, but they were smarter QBs who could read defenses.

They also had better pocket awareness.

They just never had the kind of confidence in themselves and leadership qualities that separated others with limited physical tools had.

Drew Brees doesn't have a strong arm.
He makes up for it with outstanding accuracy and anticipation.

Rex Grossman is more gifted physically, he just isn't smart.

Matt Cassel is a weak armed QB with poor mechanics, both in his footwork and his throwing motion, and he can't read a defense for shit.

Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer had similar physical limitations, but they were smarter QBs who could read defenses.

They also had better pocket awareness.

They just never had the kind of confidence in themselves and leadership qualities that separated others with limited physical tools had.

Drew Brees doesn't have a strong arm.
He makes up for it with outstanding accuracy and anticipation.

Rex Grossman is more gifted physically, he just isn't smart.

Matt Cassel is a weak armed QB with poor mechanics, both in his footwork and his throwing motion, and he can't read a defense for shit.

Great post.

I worry about our teams ability to develop or put a QB in a situation to succeed. Not one of the three QB's on the roster show anything. Quinn wasn't better than Stanzi, at least not by as much as a former first round veteran QB who has already played in the offense should be. He just wasn't worse. Their play was very comparable, but Quinn got more chances.

Beyond that, not a one of the QB's show improvement or promise while Andy Reid gets yet another QB to perform, the Seahawks get something out of Wilson, who I promise you isn't very good. Pete Carroll has always been able to successfully get good play from QB's, as has Reid. They go elsewhere, and they become Kolb. What the hell?

Is it our coaching, or our offense or what?

I'm surprised the "Quinn officially number 2" thing hasn't gotten it's own thread yet. Stanzimania is really fizzling out.

I still have hope though. I've said all along that it will require a great deal of patience if we are grasping on to the hope of Stanzi succeeding for the Chiefs. I thought his game 2 perfomance ignited kind of an impulsive, over-reaction. I just don't think we have a large enough sample-size to really form an accurate conclusion about Stanzi. Yes, he ****ed up a bit in that game, but he really didn't have many things going in his favor that would make him more inclined to have a good showing. I thought the OL was absolute shit for him that game. I am aware though, that your elite QB's can work around shit like that and make their own breaks...which Stanzi obviously didn't. However, I think it's way too early and the sample size is way too small to make any bold assumptions/predictions about the guy yet. I do understand the over-reaction to his performance (lack of) in that game though. Just more evidence of how starved we, as a fanbase are for a dominant or at least seemingly competent QB.

I had a gut feeling that Brady Quinn was in the driver seat to win the backup QB position the day he signed. I have thought the entire time that Quinn was expected to be the #2 guy, BUT I think the Chiefs would be more willing to cut ties with him than they would Stanzi DESPITE his ranking above him in the depth chart. Smart organizations, IMO, have a veteran or undisputably talented young guy as their #1, and a veteran of some sort at and at least 1 developmental guy (Stanzi) filling the #2 and #3 spots. I don't really think Tanney is much of a factor at this point, but my curiosity is officially sparked as to why he hasn't cut yet and/or seen any playing time in any preseason games.

Not to mention, Stanzi is cheap. We have him inked for 3 more years (including this year) for pocket change compared to what some backups are being paid.

My Stanzi-hope isn't completely diminished, yet. It's clear that he isn't an immediate world-beater, but he's never struck me as the type of guy who would be.... I think he has potential to improve in time...more time than I think people want or are willing to spend waiting for the guy.

He's like a roller-coaster. A lot of Iowans like him because of the fun factor he brought to the game...and if fans didn't have fun due to the occasional "downs" that he'd have and usually dig himself out of, they at least remember him from those games and always will. I think the Stanzi-era is one of the most memorable Iowa eras in Iowa football history. Not always memorable for the right reasons, but memorable nonetheless. Some of the games (especially his Junior season) were just crazy.

He does have skills....it's just one of those "had to be there watching it to completely understand it" type of deals. He had his share of brain-farts, but reciprocated for them, usually.

Iowans also like him because he was a stone cold Cyclone killer who was 3/3 in Bowl games and generally statistically performed well against some of the tougher competition that Iowa would run in to.

I think a lot of Stanzi-love comes from Iowa homers and/or people who witnessed some of the games led by him that seemed to defy logic. Many of the Iowa homers probably want to relive those days. They were fun. Not everyone liked him though...he frustrated a lot of people. Stanzi said, "love it or leave it" and the general attitude towards Stanzi is they "love him or hate him." Stanzi-ball was fun, but not for everyone. Depends on your preference of game tempo and style of play.

Off the field, the he's a pretty cool dude. Have met him a couple times in informal settings....most all of you would like him on a personal level.

This team's philosophy is never going to be a "well, let's play this unknown guy, and if we lose 15 games, we'll draft a QB."

Pioli is going to continue to build the roster, and I'm guessing he'll never trade up too far for a QB in the first round, either. My guess is they are going to wait for another Aaron Rodgers to fall to them in the 20's. When he does, he will already be surrounded by a good team, and the jump to SB contenders will be virtually immediate.

It's a philosophy, I'll give him that. Not sure I agree. I think it's kid of like buying all of your materials and waiting around for the contractor to show up. You can't build the house without the contractor, so get him first.

Still, expect this team to not go below 7 wins and just wait for a good QB prospect to fall to us in the draft. But until we get a legit QB, don't expect a playoff win.

Sad.

Wallace is/was holding out because he's young, one of the best receivers in the league, and is going to be playing under a 1 year restricted free agent tender. Wallace could still negotiate a deal.

Bowe was the only player holding out that was franchise tagged because you cant negotiate a new deal beyond a certain date now.

Since your implying that Stanzi is my boy toy, I should probably clarify to you that he's not....I want the dude to succeed and I haven't made that a mystery, but it isn't going to be the end of the world for me if he doesn't. Therefore, you don't have to apologize for insulting him, for I don't care when people insult him. Everyone has their own take and that's fine, just as long as their take isn't so dumb that it places them in the category of total douche-canoe. I was more offended because I felt dumber after picking up on your lack of ability to comprehend what you read (or pretend to have read). So if you were to apologize for that, I would understand, for nobody necessarily likes to feel dumber than they already are.

There have been many 500+ word posts about many Chiefs/non-Chiefs players on this board. Hell, you see it every day...or well, maybe you don't, the reading comprehension DOES seem to be an issue with you. Don't be hatin' on the people who are actually able to generate 500+ word posts opposed to responses containing 3-4 sentences that are irrelevant, reflects misinterpretation of what they claimed to have "read," and indicate that the poster who typed the response may be a product of an incest sexual relationship.

I have to give you credit for the Hallmark message board jab at me. That was pretty good. After I posted the "500-word essay" about Stanzi, I thought to myself, "jeez, that reads like something that cornball, Casey Kasem would blurt before playing some cheesy sports-related pop song." Nice job on that one liner....

Now, go back to trying to eat your own cranium and when you are finished, please send me a pm or respond to one of my posts and inform me how long it took you to do to accomplish the task. I sincerely wish you the best of luck at that.

Since your implying that Stanzi is my boy toy, I should probably clarify to you that he's not....I want the dude to succeed and I haven't made that a mystery, but it isn't going to be the end of the world for me if he doesn't. Therefore, you don't have to apologize for insulting him, for I don't care when people insult him. Everyone has their own take and that's fine, just as long as their take isn't so dumb that it places them in the category of total douche-canoe. I was more offended because I felt dumber after picking up on your lack of ability to comprehend what you read (or pretend to have read). So if you were to apologize for that, I would understand, for nobody necessarily likes to feel dumber than they already are.

There have been many 500+ word posts about many Chiefs/non-Chiefs players on this board. Hell, you see it every day...or well, maybe you don't, the reading comprehension DOES seem to be an issue with you. Don't be hatin' on the people who are actually able to generate 500+ word posts opposed to responses containing 3-4 sentences that are irrelevant, reflects misinterpretation of what they claimed to have "read," and indicate that the poster who typed the response may be a product of an incest sexual relationship.

I have to give you credit for the Hallmark message board jab at me. That was pretty good. After I posted the "500-word essay" about Stanzi, I thought to myself, "jeez, that reads like something that cornball, Casey Kasem would blurt before playing some cheesy sports-related pop song." Nice job on that one liner....

Now, go back to trying to eat your own cranium and when you are finished, please send me a pm respond to one of my posts and inform me how long it took you to do to accomplish the task. I sincerely wish you the best of luck at that.

Thinking Stanzi had NFL upside <> being an Iowa homer

I'm not sure what <> means, but I think I agree with it. If someone indicates that they think Stanzi has NFL potential, the chances of them being an Iowa homer are pretty high.

Regarding the Hawkeyes, it's hard not to pull for them when you are surrounded by Hawkeyes fans every Saturday during football season. I also had a friend who played and was successful there. So I like the Hawkeyes and really followed them during the Stanzi era because it was fun.

Ironically, I've always considered myself a Notre Dame fan. My grandma had 14 sisters and 2 brothers. One of my 2nd or 3rd cousins from that side of the family married Lou Holtz's son. I thought that was pretty cool when I was 8 years old, so I started rooting for Notre Dame although I hadn't and still haven't met Lou Holtz, his son or my 2nd/3rd cousin for that matter. Hell, I don't even know what my cousin's name is...there's so damn many of them. It has been tough rooting for them over the years, mostly because I am the only Notre Dame fan that I know of in the region I reside in. The only time I met a large amount of Notre Dame fans was when I was in college and I was not impressed with them. They were Chicaburbians....Cubs fans. And I have a very difficult time rooting for a team that many Cubs fans root for. It's been tough, I've considered just saying "**** it" and converting to full-fledged Hawkeye fan anyways, since I have followed them just by being surrounded by Hawkeye fans since I was a baby. I'm not as passionate about NCAA football anyways, so what the hell? I can't stand the JVB regime though...even though one would think I'd be more inclined to like him since he is from the same area as me. Hell my mom works with his dad....as a nurse at the hospital where is dad is a doctor.

And as far as Brady Quinn goes, I always disliked him because I thought he came off as a prissy, tramped out little biznitch. He always reminded me of one of those snooty friends of Dan Aykroyd's character on the movie "Trading Places."

"does not equal"

If someone indicates that they think Stanzi has NFL potential, the chances of them being an Iowa homer are pretty high.

I strongly disagree. There's maybe a half dozen hardcore Hawkeye fans here. There's ALOT more than 6 people here that think/thought Stanzi has potential.

Oh...well I was way off the mark on that one.
