With Chiefs in the midst of a quarterback controversy between Brady Quin suffering from a concussion, Matt Cassel being a turnover machine, and a call to see what the team could get from Rickey Stanzi, the second-year man out of Iowa who has yet to start an NFL game, it was looking as the the Bengals may not know who the opposing quarterback would be until the two teams kick-off at 1 p.m. Sunday in Arrowhead. That won’t be the case, as Chiefs Head Coach Romeo Crennel has decided to announce Cassel will be the teams’ starting QB this week vs. the Bengals.
Brady Quinn said yesterday he had been medically cleared as he’s recovered from a concussion. Crennel revealed today that was not the case, and that the Chiefs will go with Cassell yet again, despite the fact he’s leading the NFL in turnovers, including the game-sealing interception he threw in the teams’ overtime loss in Monday night’s game against the Steelers.
Coupled with a 1-8 record, the Bengals are in prime position to pick up an easy win. We’re smarter than that though, and know that rarely does any win come easy for the Bengals.
