Brady Quinn poised for more Kansas City Chiefs snaps

Teammates of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel reportedly are losing confidence in him following another rocky outing in Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers. The coaching staff might not be far behind.

Coach Romeo Crennel admitted Monday that Brady Quinn could pick up some first-team snaps in practice this week. Crennel broached the idea of benching Cassel at some point, even if only for a drive.

"You pull him out, put somebody else in, let him settle down and maybe he goes back in," Crennel said. "As a coach, you get a feeling about whether he's making good decisions, poor decisions ... those kind of things all kind of play into it."

Cassel has 10 turnovers on the season, so he has made a lot of poor decisions. Cassel is not the type of playmaker, like Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who can make up for many mistakes.

"At some point, as a coach, you go through and you see what's happening in the game and how a guy is reacting and how he's responding to what's happening in the game," Crennel said. "If you feel he's inept, constantly making poor decisions, bad choices, then that's when you move on from him and give someone else a chance."

The Chiefs' home crowd chanted for No. 3 quarterback Ricky Stanzi on Sunday. Crennel can only hope that's the low point of the season. We aren't likely to see Stanzi anytime soon, but it sounds like we're another bad Cassel performance away to getting the Brady Quinn experience.

Hopefully, he doesn't fuck up our draft position.

This might be as good a place as any to mention this ... but I had the misfortune of listening to Roleo's presser today and noticed that he mentioned something unusually interesting during the give-and-take over Cassel's inability to remove a cork from his own ass.

The stuff in the OP was, of course, part of the conversation. But at one point, Gretz started asking about the over-throws and Roleo said something along the lines of, "... you know sometimes a guy will look good in 7 on 7 practice when there isn't a pass rush, you know, but you know when there's a pass rush in the game, you know, the guy might not throw as accurately ... you know ..."

It seems to be an admission that Roleo, at least, is aware that Cassel is A) Inaccurate much of the time, and B) Folds under pressure.

It only took him about 10 games to figure that out, but hey ... it's progress.

I pointed it out while it happened, but Zorn said a few times how Cassel looks better under false pressure (from ota practices iirc) showing that they acknowledged way back then (and last year also) that was an area to focus on.

Shit, even going back to 2008, BB told Cassel to take sacks during the first part of the year as a tool to try and get him to keep his eyes downfield when he got pressured. Chris Collinsworth pointed this out over and over during the games...that Cassel would look at the rush after his first read.

That was my major gripe with trading for him in the first place.

Here we are, nearly 5 years later, and the exact same problem exists.

I thought Cassel had made a couple (small) steps forward this season in handling the rush. It's the wild inaccuracy when there isn't any pressure that I can't get past.

I can understand inaccuracy when a QB can't step into a throw, or is running from an angry DE. This season I've seen Cassel stand untouched in the pocket and throw passes behind receivers, too high, to the wrong shoulder, or just overthrow a wide open receiver.

Exactly.

Best case scenario, Stanzi turns into Tom Brady.

Worst case scenario, Stanzi sucks, we cut him or keep him as a backup and draft a QB.

There is no downside to playing Stanzi over Quinn. For all over Florio's faults, he did talk about this today on PFT, which is the TMZ of the NFL. However, he's right. Stanzi should leapfrog Quinn IMO.

BossChief

Stanzi plays well enough that the Chiefs pass on a QB in the 2013 draft.

We are 1-3 with 12 games to go and we would need to win at least 8 more games to be out of the qb picture (considering a trade up using a first and second rounder to get high enough as the baseline)

If Stanzi turns this team around and we end up 9-7 (which would mean Stanzi would be 8-4 as the starter) how would that be a bad thing?

This place is crazy in some ways.

Why would people be disappointed with a 25 year old quarterback that we drafted going 8-4?

For me, it would depend on how those games played out and if we made it to the post-season and his performance there.

If we drafted Geno Smith, I would expect a playoff appearance in his rookie season. Same as if we had drafted RG3, Luck, or Wilson.

High expectations result in high performances or replacement.

With the way Denver is playing and the Chargers already out to such an early lead, there is no chance we make the playoffs at this point....especially at 9-7...which even that is an unrealistic ceiling.

There is nothing Stanzi could do to keep us from either trading up and taking a qb or sitting put and taking one.

If he does well, it could propel the rest of the teams energy and get them to realize potential.

I didn't want to seem like a weasel. I didn't think Tannehill was worth trading up for (I wanted Mercilus) and I think Weeden will provide a maximum of 3 years at an above-average level of performance and will probably flame out within 2.

Granted, both have played better than I expected, especially Tannehill. If they continue to perform well, then I will eat crow gladly. That being said, I didn't think those two were close in terms of talent to Luck, RG3 or Smith and still don't. If they prove me wrong, then congratulations to them.

We are 1-3 with 12 games to go and we would need to win at least 8 more games to be out of the qb picture (considering a trade up using a first and second rounder to get high enough as the baseline)

If Stanzi turns this team around and we end up 9-7 (which would mean Stanzi would be 8-4 as the starter) how would that be a bad thing?

This place is crazy in some ways.

Why would people be disappointed with a 25 year old quarterback that we drafted going 8-4?

The last eight games are much weaker that the 1st 8, he would have to tear it up to be the # 1 going in next year.Crap Pioli might think we would be OK with Matty as a back up and not draft a # 1 QB.

Very few Tom Brady's ever make it in the NFL.

What's the deal with the sig, bro?

I lost a bet against Gadzooks. Have to keep this until the next Chiefs/Chargers game.

The bet was that Baldwin would get 50 yards and a TD in that game. I got half of it.

In hindsight it was a dumb bet, but I had nothing else about this team of which to be prideful. I didn't know and didn't care if we held the Chargers rush offense to under 100 yards, which was the bet we made last year. I had a chance to make Gadzooks a loyal member of the Terrance Copper society, though. So I rolled the dice.

Brock, I'll admit that I didn't like him. He was the reason Cyrus Gray's draft stock fell along with Jeff Fuller. To me, that is a sign of poor QB play. If he continues to play at a high level for a rookie, I'll eat my crow happily.

Then they'll overreact again and put Quinn back in but his confidence will be doubly shattered and he'll bomb even worse than any of the prior bombings that had taken place so far. Meanwhile, Pioli will begin a frantic search of the league for another quarterback and he will find some pitiable castoff and sign him and that quarterback will play better than anybody so far and win a game causing all the other quarterbacks we have left on the team to see their confidence shattered to an even higher degree of shatteredness than they were before at which point there will be shattered quarterback ego pieces everywhere you look and much crying and sobbing in the locker room which will inspire Roleo to give everybody a real big hug but he'll accidentally smother one of the quarterbacks betwixt his massive tittahs and the police will arrest him and Daboll will then become interim head coach and fire himself.

Brady Quinn poised for more Kansas City Chiefs snaps


By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League editor
Published: Oct. 1, 2012 at 08:07 p.m. Updated: Oct. 1, 2012 at 09:28 p.m.

Teammates of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel reportedly are losing confidence in him following another rocky outing in Sunday's loss to the San Diego Chargers. The coaching staff might not be far behind.

Coach Romeo Crennel admitted Monday that Brady Quinn could pick up some first-team snaps in practice this week. Crennel broached the idea of benching Cassel at some point, even if only for a drive.

"You pull him out, put somebody else in, let him settle down and maybe he goes back in," Crennel said. "As a coach, you get a feeling about whether he's making good decisions, poor decisions ... those kind of things all kind of play into it."

Cassel has 10 turnovers on the season, so he has made a lot of poor decisions. Cassel is not the type of playmaker, like Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick, who can make up for many mistakes.

"At some point, as a coach, you go through and you see what's happening in the game and how a guy is reacting and how he's responding to what's happening in the game," Crennel said. "If you feel he's inept, constantly making poor decisions, bad choices, then that's when you move on from him and give someone else a chance."

The Chiefs' home crowd chanted for No. 3 quarterback Ricky Stanzi on Sunday. Crennel can only hope that's the low point of the season. We aren't likely to see Stanzi anytime soon, but it sounds like we're another bad Cassel performance away to getting the Brady Quinn experience.

Follow Gregg Rosenthal on Twitter @greggrosenthal.

thing is, he really doesn't say quinn might get snaps...he's speaking hypothetically

this is like pioli's famous "I believe in competition for the QB" statement...which was purely hypothetical...

FAX
10-02-2012, 07:50 AM
Alternatively, Roleo could be referring to macaroons which are closely related to the snap. They are very like a coconut snap with puffy cheeks. Or, perhaps Brady is reciting hip poetry in the locker room and Roleo digs it.

This is such a nother waisted season imo. We can't even get good development or evaluation for the piss poor QB play. Quinn comes in his best attribute is taking off and run kind of what TT does.

Guys like Jonathan Baldwin are the ones who suffer the most. It's no wonder he hasn't shown much this season. Fucking Cassell sucks and brings the team down with him. It's pathetic that the coaches are just now recognizing this when us fans have been screeming for a while now.

But at one point, Gretz started asking about the over-throws and Roleo said something along the lines of, "... you know sometimes a guy will look good in 7 on 7 practice when there isn't a pass rush, you know, but you know when there's a pass rush in the game, you know, the guy might not throw as accurately ... you know ..."

It seems to be an admission that Roleo, at least, is aware that Cassel is A) Inaccurate much of the time, and B) Folds under pressure.

Universal top 3 criteria for benching a QB
1-he's inept
2-he's constantly making poor decisions
3-he's making bad choices


"At some point, as a coach, you go through and you see what's happening in the game and how a guy is reacting and how he's responding to what's happening in the game," Crennel said. "If you feel he's inept, constantly making poor decisions, bad choices, then that's when you move on from him and give someone else a chance."

I dont want him to get "some snaps", make the change or dont, laying out a tease rumor like that means less than nothing.

Move on 100% past castle or dont even bother, give Quinn his last shot in the bigs and if he sucks (again) let Stanzi have his first chance, and if they all suck, thats just fine... all the more reason for major change.

And when Brady does no better are we back to Cassel?

Ideally, bringing in Quinn would symbolize the end of the Cassel era, a complete loss of confidence. Therefore we bring in Quinn to try to salvage the season before it is lost for good.

If Quinn fails to deliver, and loses say all 4 games he plays, we don't go back to Cassel. The season is lost, we'd be 1-9 or 2-8 by that point. Putting Cassel in to save face would be the worst thing a team could do, there is literally no point.

You either stick with Quinn and hope it clicks by the end of the year, or you give your young developmental QB a 6 game audition. Stanzi would HAVE to see the field.

This is what I'm hoping for. The way I see it playing out is, Cassel is gone. Period. After that, Quinn probably fails. Then, Stanzi gets to sink or swim. At the very least, he gains valuable experience which would make him a viable backup option to a rookie 1st round QB. At best, he might get to compete with a rookie first round QB.

Creepy. He looks like a young, buff Mitt Romney.

Well, if he sees a few snaps or series before the bye week, you can take that as trying to prime him to take over after the bye if Cassel doesn't improve. Kinda of a jump start so he doesn't go in completely cold.

Get him acclimated, then give him a full 2 weeks to prepare to take over for Cassel.
