I think the QB of the future may be on our roster already.

Laugh if you must, but I really think the QB we are looking for might be Brady Quinn.

I re-watched the game from last Thursday this morning. All-in-all, I felt like Quinn was very sharp... given the fact that he just started getting some time with the first string players earlier in the week.

Cassel's only pass, and Quinn's first pass were nearly the identical same play. Bowe had to go to the ground to catch Cassel's throw. Breaston caught Quinn's right were the ball should have been thrown, and turned it up-field for 3 or so more yards.

Quinn's 2nd pass was a beautifully thrown ball that hit Baldwin right in stride, and Baldwin was able to turn it up for several more yards.

The next two passes were highly criticized around here after/since the game. I did not see that much there that can not be fixed... once Quinn gets more time with the #1's to get timing issues worked out. All thorughout OTA's and Training Camp, I never recall hearing Quinn (or Stanzi) making any plays with any #1 receivers. Not even during drills.

Anyway. On the first one, as slant pass to Baldwin, it looks like just a matter of timing. They were on the same page... but just didn't connect. More reps together to develop some chemistry, and that is a TD easily.

The next play... which was an Interception that was negated by a penalty on the Packers... that had a whistle blown in the middle of the play... it appeared that Baldwin and Quinn were not on the same page. Quinn's pass appeared that he expected Baldwin to go inside instead of on the fade route that Baldwin ran. Again, more reps together to develop the right chemistry so they are reading the right thing. Baldwin cuts inside, and that is a TD. Quinn throws the fade pass, and it is also probably a TD. Not on same page. That has to be understandable given the minimal amount of time the two have had together.

Next drive was all backups. Line and skill players.

3rd and 7. Hits Bellamy right on the button for an easy first down.

3rd and 9. Hits Manari right on the numbers for another first down.

3rd and 8. QB draw type of run that would have made Elway proud right up to the non-slide that got him slightly injured.

Then the next pass that has been widely criticized around here. The Interception on the back of the endzone. Again, this was with his backups and not the starters, which gives no excuse to Quinn. BUT... he starts out looking to his left. Staying with his progression, he moves to the middle of the field. At this point, Harris is getting his ass kicked by a Packers defender causing Quinn to have to step up into the pocket, which is collapsing under the 2nd string line. A half of a second more at the most, and Manari is comming wide open on a TE drag across just a little right of where Quinn made the decision to throw. Tiny bit better pocket, and that ball goes to Manari if Quinn has the time to finish his reads and that is an easy TD.

That is all the further I watched. And that was all the further I needed to watch. I am convinced Quinn is going to be just what the doctor ordered for this team. All he needs is more time with the #1's to get on the same page with them.

I know Cassel is the starter for now. I can accept that. He is not the best QB though. And it is not even going to be close... in time.

Has nothing to do with Cassel sucking, it has everything to do with the lack of basic football knowledge of our fanbase here.

We are quickly becoming CC and/or WPI...

What games are you watching?

Any throw beyond 20 yards is almost guaranteed to be a neutral play AT BEST.

Go to any stat-related site there is and look it up - Matt Cassel's "deep ball" is one of the worst in the league among starting QBs.

Are you kidding?? Quinn looked like shit. Couldn't even hit a slant pass in the end zone on his first trip to the red zone, and then threw a pick on his next trip to the red zone. Cassel hit Bowe for like 10 TDs on that slant pass in 2010. It was almost unstoppable.

JFC.....Quinn has had NO time with the #1s. I bet if Cassel went out and played with the scrubs....he'd look like dog shit as well.

So a QB that has been in the league for as long as he has needs a ton of reps to hit a 7 yard slant pass?
Look, I like Quinn. Love to have him as a back up, but Cassel is actually better, and that's not good for Quinn.

When you don't get any reps with the WRs that you're throwing to? Yeah. The passing game relies on timing. You only get that from working with the WRs over and over again. Interesting that when Quinn goes out and plays with the #2s.....he's got no problems. That's because those are the guys that he's practicing with on a day to day basis.

I guarantee that if Quinn got #1 reps during practice....he'd blow Cassel out of the water. I've said it before.....and I'll say it again....Quinn is the perfect fit for this offense. He's better in the pocket than Cassel is. He's better at reading defenses. He's better at going through his progressions. And he's better at throwing the deep ball.

coogs, I posted something similar before the preseason. I am far from a Quinn honk and I hate ND...so no dog in the fight. I think Quinn has more presence and more ability than the other two QBs on the roster. He isn't perfect, and his biggest issue is his inability to sense pressure and burn pressure.

With that said, I think BQ is a better option for KC long term. To the stooges who think drafting a QB in the first round, no matter who it is, you guys are really really dumb.

Watch the 1st two series with Quinn against the Packers again. Watch it without any bias. You might be surprised.
I'm a Quinn supporter but with CoMo's track record just made it happen.

And before someone comes out and calls me a Quinn homer.......I'm not saying that if Quinn was starting....that he would be out competing with Brady, Brees or Rodgers. He's not that type of QB. But he is better than Cassel....and he won't go out there and just complete checkdown passes to McCluster all ****ing game.

I really wish he could get a shot to do just that. It would be ****ing awesome for him to resurrect his career for us, and become the quality starter we need. He has all the talent in the world.

What is funny is how fast it went from Stanzimania to QuinnTaintLicking... Dear god, this is getting comical.

If you need a good laugh, open a QB thread on CP and read the expert analysis...

Quinn's career never really got off to a start at all. His situation in Cleveland was ****ed. He got injured...and then lost the coach that drafted him. Mangini ****ed up that whole situation. He went to Denver. Could he have shined and made the Broncos start him over Tebow? Sure. But I still think that Denver wasn't going to blow a 1st round pick on Tebow and then not give him a shot. He came here....and he's still ****ed because Pioli isn't benching Cassel.

What's funny is if ANYONE on this board actually thinks your posts have any substance to them. You've now fallen below R8ers and Setsuna. You're the most worthless poster on this board.

Cassel will have a year par with any average QB and we'll call it his break out year. Pioli will have that "I told you so" posture all off season and stay away from drafting one of the talented QBs coming up.

The ball went were it should have every single time... except one... but that was more on the O-line IMO. Split second longer with some pass protection, and the progression reads leads Quinn right to an easy TD on his left to right read pattern. And I mean split second.
I was vocally against drafting Quinn when he came out of college and posters here were screaming for him. I was totally correct. Quinn has not done anything for me to even get the crow out of the freezer.

Which is why I have theorized on this BB before and will here again, that Daboll has been instructed to devise an O that would be totally suited to Cassel. This may be one of the reasons Stanzi has regressed over last preseason. This and the long hair.
