Default Denver Post : Cassel on short leash as Chiefs' starting QB

Quote:
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 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.......

Some of you will laugh at this...I know I am. Some of you, however, need to fess up to the fact that you thought it was more than a good idea to bring Cassel in.

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.

The stats speak for themselves

16-24 177 yards 7.4 yds/att 66% completion % 2 TDs QB rating 116.1.

with OUR DEFENSE that type of production from the QB position wins games HANDILY.

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...

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
