Perhaps the biggest battle in Kansas City relates to the backup quarterback position. With Matt Cassel holding the top spot (for now), the guy who sits at No. 2 could get a chance to be the Tony Romo to Cassel’s Drew Bledsoe.
As MDS pointed out in the Wednesday morning one-liners, coach Romeo Crennel doesn’t put much stock in preseason depth charts. Still, when the Chiefs were required to put pen to paper (assuming anyone uses pens or paper anymore), Quinn got the nod over Stanzi.
Then again, Quinn got the nod over Tim Tebow last year in Denver. And Tebow got the job once Kyle Orton was benched.
So it could be déjà vu all over again for Quinn in Kansas City. Quinn could win the No. 2 job, and if the Chiefs choose to bench Cassel, Stanzi could vault to No. 1.
