    Matt Cassel formally ruled out; Brady Quinn to start for Chiefs - Arrowhead Pride

    It's official: Matt Cassel is out for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Romeo Crennel made the announcement at his Thursday press conference. Brady Quinn will get his first start in nearly three years in Week 6.

    This was basically a formality at this point. Cassel didn't practice on Wednesday due to the concussion suffered on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens and the Chiefs said they were going to be cautious with Cassel, which was an indication he wouldn't play. And he won't.

    This means that the Brady Quinn era is officially here. The Chiefs play the Bucs on Sunday then have a bye the week after that so for at least one week this will be Quinn's team.

    This is a huge opportunity for him. We're not sure how the Chiefs are feeling about Cassel's situation in the long term but it seems reasonable that Quinn could hang onto the starting job beyond Week 6 if he plays well.

    You ready for the Quinn era?

    Yes, he is and yes it is. QFT
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    Hopefully they make adjustments once the defense pushes everyone to stop the run. Unlike last week.

    All I got out of this article is worries. Not about the QB, but about the coaching staff destroying Charles by running him to much.

    This is my number one concern for this season regardless what happens at QB.

    Falcons fan here. I'm thrilled your team decided to unleash THE DRAGON on the Sucs. I hope he slaughters them and proves that HE IS a QB in this league.

    The fanbase here is hoping he does well and that there is a true reason to prove a case for change. Outside of the first half against you guys, its been hard to argue against trying something that doesnt involve shortening Charles career.

    I wish Quinn a GREAT game and JC a 100+ yard game with fewer carries.
