    Default Cassel will be starter heading into training camp

    While it doesn't eliminate the possibility of him having competition, I think we're probably looking at Matt Cassel being the starter next year.

    "According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Matt Cassel will "for sure" be the Chiefs' starting quarterback heading into training camp.

    Schefter's assertion comes two weeks after new coach Romeo Crennel backed Cassel at his introductory press conference. Schefter's comments leave the door open for the Chiefs to add competition, but the feeling among organization higher-ups is that Cassel can still be a success. Free agent Kyle Orton has hinted he won't be back after leading the Chiefs to a 2-1 record down the stretch. "

    Glad to clear the air of the QB talk....Crennel is starting out on the right foot.. Just like he did with Orton and Stanzi his 1st week as interim HC he cleared the air to eliminate distractions.

    I think it's important to state who your guy is, weather or not he remains the guy...You need to make it clear to the team who is going to lead them well in advance.

    Did anyone find out if Orton is restricted or Unrestricted??? I had heard both, it would be nice to get compensation for him if he is restricted.

    He's unrestricted.

    Restricted applies only to guys w/ < 4 years experience. I think Orton is at 7 or 8.

    He is unrestricted, but he is a big enough name to garner a compensation pick, it is possible.

    Just like I expected.

    Even if we did draft RG3, (which I really don't see possible) I think Cassel would still be the starter, unless of course we used Cassel in the trade to get RG3.

    Its a good thing though that its been announced, to ease the talk. It still leaves us short a qb, so we still need to pick 1 up via FA or draft. I would like to have somone who has had starting experience. We saw what happened in 2011.

    Think it's more likely we see a veteran come in to back him up....

    Maybe willing to give Stanzi one more year to develop in hopes of him working out to be a starter in 2 years....If they aren't confident in the idea of him taking over for Cassel in 2 years (Cassel will be 32 years old) I think next year you see us take a QB high in rounds 1 or two...

    Possible Vets for this offseason:

    A.J. Feeley (STL)
    Byron Leftwich (PIT)
    Mark Brunell (NYJ)
    Sage Rosenfels (MIA)
    Shaun Hill (DET)
    Brady Quinn (DEN)
    David Garrard (FA)
    David Carr (NYG)
    Luke McCown (JAC)
    Chad Henne (MIA)
    Chris Redman (ATL)
    Charlie Batch (PIT)

    I think Brady Quinn would be my pick of this group.

    Ya know I started looking at it.... and Quinn has never really gotten his shot, or had a coach or organization that stuck with him....Crennel Drafted him but after he was let go, the new coaching staff never game him much of a shot either.

    His rookie season he held out of training camp causing him to miss 10 days of camp...Because of the holdout Quinn had some catchup to do and was listed as 3rd on the depth chart.

    Week 1 Charlie Frye was the starter and the Browns got their butt whipped by the Steelers 34-7, Frye was then traded away to the Seahawks elevating Derek Anderson into the starting role, and Quinn to 2nd string. This was the year the Browns went 10-6.... Anderson remained the starter until he hurt his wrist and Pinky in week 16 causing Quinn to get his first start as a pro the final week of the season.

    The 2008 season brought a QB controversy, but the General Manager announced that Anderson would go into the season as the starter after leading the team to a 10-6 record the year before.... Aftar a 3-5 start with Anderson under center the Browns again went with Quinn. His first start that season and of his career was a loss to the Broncos in which he played well, and even lead the Browns to a 2 td lead against Denver, but the Broncos rallied back to win. The following week Quinn recorded his first win agaisnt the Bills in only his 3rd career start, unfortunately Quinn broke his finger in that game, and had to be taken out the following week against the Texans ending his season.

    This ended Crennel's tenure in Cleveland.... The following year Eric Mangini came in and said there would be a competition between Anderson and Quinn for the starting job..Quinn won the competition. He remained the Starter until week 3 when he was benched at halftime agaisnt the Ravens in favor of Anderson who would only hold the starting job for 4 1/2 weeks and was replaced by Quinn in the final minutes of the week 8 loss to the Bears. Going into the BYE week, the Browns once again did not know who their starter would be...Quinn was again handed the starting QB position due to his had work ethic and effort even while on the bench. Quinn returned to the starting position against the Ravens on Monday night football in a week 11 loss to the Ravens (16-0) he remained the starter and put out some of his best performances of his short career in this span leading the team to a 3-2 record before being placed on IR for the final two games of the season with a foot injury. Among the teams Quinn beat were the Steelers and the Chiefs 41-34 in Arrowhead stadium....

    As we all know, in 2010 he was traded to the Broncos, and he is now a Free Agent...

    Sounds to me like he's never really had a shot to be successful. An hasn't even been allowed to play a full season... I think it could be a possibility Crennel picks this kid up, gives him a 2-3 year deal with backup money in hopes that he could succeed Cassel after his contract is up.

    The guy is only 27, and has had the time to learn...If we bring him in as the backup the investment isn't there, and we have time to evaluate him..

    He was a 1st round pick for a reason....Thoughts??

    I had heard before the season started that he could compete with Orton for the starting job and I think he looked pretty good in the preseason games, IIRC. But I have some questions about him.

    Do you think the Broncos will try to resign him?

    Why didn't he get a shot in Denver when they gave up on Orton?

    I don't know anything about his size / Physique. Do you thinkk he might be injury prone, or was he just playing behind bad O-lines?
