Thigpen happy with Chiefs QB situation

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - At the start of CCU's charity golf tournament, Tyler Thigpen was introduced by Chanticleer head coach David Bennett as the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. That title may be a little optimistic, but that doesn't bother Thigpen.

The former CCU star was in town for the golf tournament, but will return to Kansas City to get back to Chiefs' OTAs. There were plenty of questions about the budding quarterback controversy between he and former New England QB Matt Cassell, but Thigpen says he doesn't focus on it. More >>

While I don't think he's quite starter material yet; I am a fan of Tyler Thigpen.

Everyone can dream, but sooner or later you have to wake up Thiggy!

Enjoy the bench.

While this is true, at least he can be a good back-up player. That helps some. He has over achieved pretty well and seems to have a good attitude. If indeed he was the starter for the opener, I think that would be a bad omen. As a fill in guy, not bad.

I hope he gives Matt a run for his money. It's only going to improve the team.

18 TDs and ran for 3. I have to respect that.

Gonzo 06-15-2009 09:16 AM

Of course he's happy. He's still employed.

Tyler is smart, he's not going to say anything negative.

He may know that Cassell is going to be the starter, but I guarantee he believes that he could be the starter instead. I'd expect him to believe that and to work his ass off to make it happen. Otherwise, what's the point?

If he could beat out Cassell, then I say more power to him. Regardless, he's a good team mate and the only way any controversy happens with him will be because he lets his play do the talking, and it turns out he's a better QB. He's a good kid...

Why wouldn't he be happy? He's the most popular guy in town, the backup QB.

Huffman83 06-15-2009 09:52 AM

It would suck for this to turn into another Gannon type situation. I think the guy is really talented and could probably put up great numbers for any team he played for. But I admit that I say that because he's not the starting qb for KC this year.

If he won more games last year then there would have been a good chance that Pioli wouldn't have traded for Cassel.

Preseason is going to be interesting if Thigpen plays better than Cassel though.

What the **** is this bullshit? Is there retardade in the water at CCU?

Maybe you should do ANOTHER Thigy highlight video?

Quesadilla Joe 06-15-2009 10:02 AM

Everything that I have read about the Chiefs so far this offseason has said that Thigpen has actually outplayed Cassel. I don't think Thigpen is getting a fair shake in KC.
