Uh, yes we do and so does the rest of the league.

Quinn has great difficulty in his anticipation/timing on any throw longer than a quick dumpoff pass in the flat or across the middle. I said as much before he started last week and that's exactly what he did.

He pretty much spent the entire game dumping the ball of to McCluster and their RBs and every time he tried a longer pass it was off target and put his WRs in a bad position.

For once, I am actually looking forward to Denver beating KC like they stole something in Arrowhead for once. Also, in before, KCslut ruins this thread of happiness.

This sounds vaguely familiar. *files under why he deserves to start over kyle orton*

It would be so awesome if Brady Quinn did just well enough to justify keeping him on as the starter for next season.

Tebow, Jamarcuss, Chris Simms, Quincy Carter, JP Losman, Chad Henne etc etc got the same opportunity, bad luck as Quinn.

Do you believe in them?

The entire QB draft class of '07 was one of the most putrid in a while. That's why Quinn fell on draft day, that's why he still sucks now.

It doesn't take 5 years to figure out whether a QB can read defenses, throw accurate passes and be decisive in the pocket.

Either the entire NFL has been wrong for the past five years or you are.

Also just because a QB was drafted in the 1st round doesn't mean he has first round talent.

Jamarcus Russell was drafted #1 overall that year. Does he have first round talent?

Quinn was taken next after he nearly fell out of the first but the Browns reached since they were deperate.

Kevin Kolb was the next a few picks later going early in the 2nd. Does he have 2nd round talent? He's barely a capable backup in this league.

Now you are just being cruel. I don't think there is any doubt that the Chiefs are going after a QB in the draft.

And what do you know, another future USC bust is going to be highly drafted.. it would be match made in heaven......

Actually, the results of those 13 starts are due to bad play....like the sub 50 QB rating from last week...against the 31st ranked pass defense.

There is a difference between comparing players than comparing situations.

I don't think Quinn is another Steve Young but the truth is we do not know.

With Cassel we knew what they had.

To me this switch is not guaranteed good news.

Lol @ "Quinn just needs a chance." Some of you are hopeless. Or high. Or both.

It's honestly getting to the point that I feel sorry for Chief fans. Sort of.

The thing is, he's smart, athletic, and has good mechanics. He's too antsy at times it seems, but remember at one point he was considered a top five pick.

But neither a Cassel or Quinn-led team scares me too much.

Quinn does not possess the ability to play professional football between the ears. He doesn't have the guts.

what is going on?
Quinn is one of the worst qb's in the league

Whoever the Chiefs line up at center next year is going to need someone to throw to
Once Bowe leaves Steve Breaston will be their best receiver

I guess he is one of those QBs where you can watch him everyday in practice and in preseason games and tell he just sucks.

I am sorry but the coaches were looking for every reason to dump Orton and probably (in hindsight) wanted someone other than Tebow to step up here last year. He didn't, and I don't buy into the "didn't get an opportunity" bit really. It's the NFL, you make the most of the opportunities you get.

I have nothing against Quinn, but seriously...he's garbage.
