Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel hinted at the possibility of giving back up quarterback Brady Quinn some reps in practice this week.
“You pull him out, put somebody else in, let him settle down and maybe he goes back in,” Crennel said, per the Kansas City Star. “As a coach, you get a feeling about whether he’s making good decisions, poor decisions … those kind of things all kind of play into it.”
Crennel is aware that there comes a time when a quarterback needs to be benched for the benefit of the team.
“At some point, as a coach, you go through and you see what’s happening in the game and how a guy is reacting and how he’s responding to what’s happening in the game,” Crennel said. “If you feel he’s inept, constantly making poor decisions, bad choices, then that’s when you move on from him and give someone else a chance.”
The problem for the Chiefs is that Quinn likely won’t do much better than Cassel. Their quarterback of the future isn’t on their roster right now.
