    Huard named as Chiefs starting quarterback
    By ADAM TEICHER
    The Kansas City Star
    Damon Huard has won the Chiefs quarterback competition and will start the regular season opener Sept. 9 against the Texans in Houston.

    Coach Herm Edwards seemed to be leaning toward starting Brodie Croyle. But Edwards apparently changed his mind after Croyle's disappointing play in Thursday night's preseason loss to New Orleans.

    Huard, because of a sore calf muscle, did not play against the Saints. He did not lead the Chiefs to any touchdowns in either of the first two preseason games, but he had some success last season filling in for Trent Green.
    Everything happens for a reason.

    I'm disappointed because people are so afraid to take a risk. They want it now, now, now. I realize that those who have been fans for forever are growing impatient, and understandably so. There are positives and negatives to each. I'm hoping Huard does better than he has performed during preseason. I was just really hoping that we'd take a risk for once, too.

    What gets me is that Carl said in the last Hard Knocks that they were waiting for someone to "take" the QB spot, but that no one had yet. Croyle didn't play well, but Huard didn't even play. How could he have "taken" it?

    I'm disappointed, but I'm still looking forward to the other young players getting their opportunity to grow.

    Luv,

    The job was Brodie's for the taking. He failed miserably!! Damon is not a hall of famer but he is not a bad QB. We all would love Brodie to be the starter, because those of us who go way back would love to see a drafted QB start.

    What bugs me is people want Brodie in because, what the heck we're going to have a crappy year anyway. We don't know that!! Every season starts with a perfect record so why not take that attitude in the beginning???

    I was actually thinking we'd do better with him. And if we didn't, then it is a rebuilding year, so the expectations were loer to begin with in general. I am usually the optimist. I still am, really. I was just so hoping that we would go against the norm and try something new. My interest has not waned. I'm still 100% behind my team.

He had 3 INTs in 3 games & it wasn't like they were tipped or receivers ran the wrong route. They were bad plays because of bad decisions.

    I think/hope he will be very good!! Someday!! Why would you want to start the season with him if he is not ready?? We have a tough schedule to begin as it is.

    I don't know why everyone is down on Damon. He played pretty good for us last year. Give the guy a chance. If he screws up in the beginning you bring Brodie in and let him get experience & get ready for next year. Just because he has been a back-up doesn't mean he can't play. He was a back-up for some pretty descent QBs. You make it sound like he was backing up scrubs & couldn't get a start.

    Rich Gannon was a back-up. Trent Green didn't play until he was in St. Louis. Kurt Warner was a damn grocery warehouse stocker!! Just give him a chance. If he doesn't come through I will be right here saying bring Brodie in.

    I refuse to be so down & the season hasn't even started. I look forward to this time of year like a kid waits for Christmas. I am going to be excited until I unwrap a piece of coal or a giant turd. You know what?? In the NFL you don't necessarily know that until weeks 4-6.

    I know some of you will call me a homer like you have others, but that's ok. If being a diehard fan of the Chiefs is a homer than I proudly wear the name!!

    Being a homer doesn't mean I am not a realist about our season. I have several concerns: Our O'line is not good right now. Our D has too many lapses for big plays. Our kicker is not impressive. I have several concerns about this year but that doesn't take away the hope for the season. Along with concerns we have alot of things to excite me. I love Pollard & Page. I think Bowe will be a big help. I think Kris Wilson is getting to show his talent. Our LBs are going to be one of the top groups in the league. Tamba & Jarrod are getting better. Larry got taken care of so that is behind us.

    Sorry about the rant, but I refuse to be dragged down when the season is still ahead of us.
    Said like a true fan...I will wear the label with you if that is what it takes to be a die-hard fan. Jolly good post and spot on.

    Wait, I am trying to understand why Trent was let go to begin with? he has been a terrific QB for the Chiefs, he was out with a concussion last year but he came back and played and will be starting now in Miami.

    Unless Croyle was ready to take over as the starter, I don't understand why keep Huard and let Trent go? hasn't Trent been a more reliable QB than Huard?

    I think its a mistake...yeah Croyle did not do great but he isn't going to get any better on the sidelines either. I think them starting Huard is based on last years performance and I have a feeling it won't be like that this year.
