Brady Quinn Will Remain Kansas City Chiefs Starting QB


The Kansas City Chiefs are on a three game losing streak and will be coming back from their bye week to face their AFC West rivals — the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead. When the Chiefs take the field, Brady Quinn will lead the Chiefs offense as the starting quarterback for at least another week.

Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel announced today that Quinn would remain the Chiefs starter. Quinn is not holding on to his starting job because of concussion symptoms for Matt Cassel, instead, Crennel believes Quinn gives the team the best chance to win.

“I’m changing the quarterback. Brady Quinn will be the starter. Matt will be the backup,” Crennel said. “I want him to be the starting QB without looking over his shoulder. There’s going to be no quick hook.”

Both Cassel and Quinn have both struggled during the early part of the season but Crennel appears to have more confidence in the former Notre Dame signal-caller. If Quinn can find a rhythm and leave Kansas City to victory over the lowly Raiders squad, the starting gig could be his for the remainder of the year.

    While I like Matt Cassel, I am behind this decision. Something has to change. Maybe sitting on the bench will give Cassel that spark and he will be able to focus on winning football games. Also, for both Cassel/ Quinn’s sake, maybe we can talk to San Diego and get their unused shipments of Stick em, because Lord knows no one would investigate our wide receivers for catching too many passes. Zing!
