Someone IS "pushing" Matt Cassell...and it AIN'T Tyler freaking Thigpen

OK, cheap shot at Thiggy, but this is intriguing. At the very least it should serve up a huge plate of crow to ANYONE who ever bashed Croyle backers. The kid can flat PLAY. He ALWAYS had the ability.

If a miracle happens and he stays healthy...who knows?

Croyle making a move in Kansas City?

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on August 18, 2009 8:23 PM ET

Over the weekend, we almost wrote a post on Brodie Croyle appearing to pass Tyler Thigpen on Kansas City's quarterback depth chart. Ultimately, it didn't make the cut.

On Tuesday, Kansas City Star writer Kent Babb wrote that he thought Croyle was playing so well, "he's threatening [Matt] Cassel's job."

Now that's a post.

Babb's bold declaration -- on Twitter, not in the newspaper -- defies logic. Not only did the Chiefs trade for Cassel to be the starter, they handed him a huge contract only a month ago.

Seeing Cassel on the bench would be the most surprising development of a preseason in which Michael Vick became Donovan McNabb's teammate.

Then again, Chiefs coach Todd Haley didn't douse water on the notion Tuesday. Asked if Cassel has been the best quarterback in camp, Haley said: "I'll hold off on answering that."

We've read that Cassel has been inconsistent at times, but overall the reviews of his camp performance have been positive. Croyle played well in Kansas City's preseason opener, but it's hard to believe that would be enough to threaten Cassel.

It is clear, though, that Tyler Thigpen is the forgotten man in Kansas City. Babb wonders if Thigpen will even make the team.

It's also clear that Chiefs coach Todd Haley thinks his team needs some tough love after the Herm Edwards era. Asked Tuesday about Brett Favre's return, Haley turned the focus back inward.

"I'm just worried about this house. It's on fire, and I'm trying to keep it from burning down."

Your 2009 Kansas City Chiefs, ladies and gentlemen!

Babb sucks. They should make him cover trans gendered soccer instead. He knows nothing about football except peaking over teichtards shoulder.

They were talking about this on 610 today with Teicher.....they were all saying that Cassel hasn't looked good since the 1st week of camp and since the scrimmage he's gone downhill.

they also said that Croyle has looked even worse. The part I heard was that Cassel's bad play opened the door for Croyle, but he's absolutely NOT taken advantage.

I don't give a **** how great Croyle looks in camp, and most reports have been that he looks like shit. Whatever. He's not an NFL player.

There's a 0 percent chance of Brodie making it through consecutive games, let alone an entire season. Thus, he's ****ing worthless.

The hit in game one last year was a perfect example of this. Most NFL QBs get up from this, but it damn near killed Croyle.

It's over. The kid has a $100M arm and a ****ing .25 cent body.

..."Not enough positives in the case of QB Brodie Croyle, however. During a drill, Croyle fumbled a snap from center and then there was confusion on a play whether it was a run or pass. Haley yanked Croyle from the drill, replacing him with Matt Gutierrez. In the next portions of practice, Gutierrez worked and Croyle did not. But towards the end of practice, Croyle was back with the No. 2 offense."...

...doesn't sound too threatening.
