I don't usually spend much time perusing comments on other blogs, or hanging around in message-board chat rooms, but I wanted to share what commenter Rin Tin Tin had to say over on Bob Gretz's blog...
"Barry Manilow may have sung about those weekends New England but in here Kaycee it’s 0 for 40 and counting…
Croyle 116.7 QB RATING
ca$$el 66.3 QB RATING
Croyle 2 tds & 0 ints – 24 points ‘on the road’ against perhaps the best defense in the entire NFL.
ca$$el 1 td & 2 ints – 10 points ‘at home’ v one of the worst teams in the entire NFL.
Croyle starts next Sunday in Philly – if the Chiefs want ANY chance of winning…"
My point in yesterday's post was this: Starting the hot hand, as in Croyle, would've given the Chiefs the opportunity to win yesterday, a win that would've meant a ton, as they likely won't be favored to win again in at least two months. That could've possibly given the club a bit of confidence and Cassel's knee one more week to heal. The upside of course is that he got his first game under his belt, and might have more sync, more confidence heading into a tough, tough stretch of games. I do not posit that Brodie is a better quarterback, although one day I might. I also disagree with the notion that he should start in Philly. One week from today, however, I might be saying something else. That is all.
