View Full Version : Denver Post : Cassel on short leash as Chiefs' starting QB

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Brodie Croyle has a much higher quarterback rating and a better completion percentage, but Matt Cassel has a bigger guaranteed contract. Guess who will start for the Chiefs on Sunday. It will be Cassel facing the Eagles in Philadelphia, coach Todd Haley said Tuesday. But the rookie head coach also said he would not hesitate to make a switch if he decided Croyle gives the winless Chiefs a better chance.

"You've got to ultimately do what you think gives your team the best chance to win," Haley said. "If that means another quarterback being in there other than Matt Cassel, then sign me up."

In Sunday's loss to the Raiders, Cassel went 24-of-39 for 241 yards, a completion percentage of 61.5. His quarterback rating was 66.3. Croyle, as Cassel's injured left knee continued to mend, hit 16-of-24 for 177 yards and two touchdowns the week before at Baltimore. Croyle threw two TD passes and did not throw an interception while compiling a rating of 116.1.

2 Td's in 20+ attempts for Croyle--that is a BETTER TD % than ORTON has and Croyle is working with FAR LESS talent at the receiver and TE position......dare I say it--Brodie Croyle has MORE TALENT than Kyle AB-Ort-ION. Flame away--I think that I am going to start a www.benchkyleorton.com (http://www.benchkyleorton.com) website.........the rest of you sheep will come on board once the season really starts to roll along and you are able to see what some of us (the Gifted ones) already do.......

Did you just argue that Croyle is better than Orton? You are an idiot.

I was pretty neutral on Cassel but you have to wonder if he'd be performing better under McDaniels and on a team with actual talent.

In any event, that was a fun $52million experiment for the Chiefs.

Terrible logic. According to your one game sample, Croyle is better than Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Carson Palmer, Jay Cutler, and pretty much is 2nd in the league to Drew Brees.

You lose credibility with that garbage.

So you take Croyle's one and only good game he's ever played vs. many games that Orton has played and automatically you are convinced Croyle is a better QB.

Nice work. You completely discredit Mediator and then spew this drivel... :spit:

back on point here. I think Haley is just saying this to try and motivate Cassel. The guy just had his first start and looked a little rusty. There is no way they bench him and that contract

So after one and a half games, Cassel sucks? Cassel is a good Qb and will do well in KC. I hope they put him on a short leash. Croyle is yet to win a NFL game and could continue after he starts.

There is an entire thread based upon the fact that Kyle Orton is 2nd or 3rd in the NFL in completing passes of greater than 25 yards ----- those of us who ACTUALLY WATCH THE GAMES KNOW THAT THIS IS COMPLETELY MISLEADING. He has yet to THROW 10 passes more than 25 yards LONG--let alone complete those-his stats are padded by YAC-but for arguments sake--you homers are willing to hang your hat on THOSE STATISTICS but poo-poo the Brodie Croyle stats----hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm The 'homers' have no clothes.......

Of course they do. It's the big, bad, mighty Chiefs, all who play them tremble in fear that Brodie Croyle would come in if Cassel somehow stumbled. Brodie is obviously the greatest QB to never win an NFL game.

Popcorn Sutton

I don't know why this thought popped in my head but unfortunately it did.

Can you imagine how Jay Cutler would react in this situation?

It's not so different. Cassel is the $60 million dollar man. He's the franchise over there and the coach is going out telling reporters that NOBODY is above the team.

Telling reporters you may be replaced by Brodie Croyle is far more insulting than talking trade of one player "Cutler" for a player "Cassel" and draft picks.
