As reported by the KC Star.


Brodie Croyle will start for the Chiefs at quarterback in Sunday’s game against the Colts in Indianapolis.

“You need a spark,’’ coach Herm Edwards said. “We’ve been in some contests now where we haven’t had the ability to score points. That’s part of your job as a quarterback, to put points on the board and move the football team. We’ve moved at times but we’ve also been very inconsistent.

“We understand what we’re walking into when we’re playing a young quarterback. At times it might look real good and at times, you might say, ‘Why did he do that?’ But you know what? So be it. We’ll live with that.’’

Croyle will replace veteran Damon Huard, who committed three turnovers in Sunday’s 27-11 loss to Denver at Arrowhead Stadium. Croyle replaced Huard in the third quarter but wasn’t much more effective than Huard.

Croyle was the Chiefs’ third-round draft pick last season. He will be the first Chiefs draft pick to start a game for them at quarterback since Todd Blackledge, who was drafted in 1983 and last started a game in 1987.

Edwards says Croyle will be his new starting QB

Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Damon Huard (http://www.nfl.com/players/damonhuard/profile?id=HUA264861) is out and Brodie Croyle (http://www.nfl.com/players/brodiecroyle/profile?id=CRO809080) is in as starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs (http://www.nfl.com/teams/kansascitychiefs/profile?team=KC).

Coach Herm Edwards said Monday the strong-armed Croyle, who came in for a shaken-up Huard against Denver on Sunday, would start at Indianapolis this week as the Chiefs try to snap a two-game losing streak and revive one of the NFL's weakest offenses.
"You need a spark," Edwards said. "We've been in some contests now where we haven't had the ability to score points. That's part of your job as a quarterback, to put points on the board and move the football team. We've moved at times, but we've also been very inconsistent."
Croyle was 17-for-30 for 162 yards, with one interception, in the 27-11 loss that dropped Kansas City to 4-5.
Huard, an 11-year veteran, was a career backup until he took over for the injured Trent Green (http://www.nfl.com/players/trentgreen/profile?id=GRE367521) last year and played well in eight games. Huard then beat out Croyle in the preseason for the starter's job but has been inconsistent -- before Croyle came in Sunday he had thrown two interceptions and lost a fumble in that game.
"Damon's done a good job helping us win four games. It's never on one guy, obviously," Edwards said. "You need a spark. We've been in some contests now where we haven't had the ability to score points.
"At this point in time, this is a chance for me and this organization to evaluate a young player that we think has a chance to play quarterback. But you don't know until he has an opportunity."
A third-round pick in 2006 out of Alabama, Croyle will be the first quarterback drafted by Kansas City to start a game for the Chiefs since Todd Blackledge, who was drafted in 1983.

Let's hope the O-line steps up so Croyle has a shot to be successful.

Hope he has something called play-maker in him, he is going to have to move and elude sacks. I still wish we have, Casey Printers.

Thanks for the info on this ! great news ! I'm just hoping that we can get some touchdowns out of Brodie . Denver tried and tried to allow him to score at the end and he just couldn't get it done . But this is how it starts I guess . Cant expect a guy with so little playing experience to be Peyton manning or Tom Brady . Good luck to him and GO CHIEFS ! I'm really getting kinda dejected about going to the home games anymore . The Atmosphere is awsome , Tailgating, meeting new people is awsome . I have been to three home games this year already and have watched them barely squeak past the Vikes and Lose to the Jags and the Broncos . I'm getting to the point of wanting to just sit in the parking lot and get bombed and listen to it on the radio! I hope Brodie gives us the spark the chiefs need to revive their season or I'm gonna stop spending Hundreds of dollars in Fuel, Hotel, food, and booze to come here . I could watch them lose at home for pennies . Go Brodie , Go Chiefs , I'm not giving up just bummed out right now .

They will have their work cut out for them with Freeney and Mathis coming around the edges too.

This is all well and good but Freeney left the SD game and isn't likely for the game this weekend, also for the SD game Bob Sanders was in street clothes.

We might be able to go against Indy without both of them, without Harrison, as well as others.

http://sportsline.com/nfl/teams/injuries/IND

Dwight Freeney Foot (Likely out)

Bob Sanders concussion (Questionable) (Likely will be back for the Chiefs game per article)

Marvin Harrison Knee (Questionable) likely not to play per Indy so he is 100% for the playoffs.(again per article)

Tony Ugoh Neck (Questionable)

Anthony Gonzalez Hand (Out)

And that was #1000, guess overall not a bad 1000.
They are getting ready to do the injury report on ESPN on the Colts I will try to update.

Well I sure hope the O-line plays better then it has, or we may lose a good young quarter back in a season that is all but lost already,but I will be pulling for the young gun...go Chiefs

As someone who said at the beginning of the season to start Huard until the season was over, I agree that it is time to start Croyle.

Maybe he will spark us. I think he will have a long hard road ahead (the interception he threw in the Denver game appeared to be him throwing the wrong route if the radio was correct -- could be him or the receiver, but he is known for his mistakes).

Let the growing pains begin and all loyalty to Croyle, the starting position for '08 is his to lose.

BTW- Herm says after he told Huard, Huard said "I'm gonna help the young guy." I think Huard is a class act.

Herm also says he won't pull Croyle for turn-overs. It's his game no matter what.

NOTE TO HERM: Please, no more wheel routes to Kris Wilson coming out of the backfield. Croyle is never close on the throw and everyone is expecting it now...

Anyway, it's official. I'm on the Croyle bandwagon now!

Go Croyle! Go Chiefs!

I will support whom ever is either my president or my quarterback!

I do like croyle's style - he steps out of the pocket, he is accurate..(except a few interceptions, but lets remember PEYTON threw 6 on Sunday), he looks around more for elegible receivers and I dont think he is afraid to run a little. Come on Croy! Get those legs moving...

I also have to add that if you watch him - dont you picture a montana style QB??? a little ??

I see a little of Brett Favre in him, gunslinger, a little reckless. Hope he has the staying power and can do anything close to the number of consecutive starts.

I agree. Good post. I know I've been hard on people calling for Brodie but now it's time. I like Huard, he has a lot of class but we needed the change and Brodie needs the experience. So I will officially step onto the Brodie bandwagon as well. I hope he makes the most of it and has a good career.
