After suggesting earlier in the week there was a “possibility” that Ricky Stanzi could start at quarterback this week, Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel indicated he might not have to push that button.

According to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star, Crennel said that starter Brady Quinn’s injured ribs wouldn’t keep him from starting Sunday against the Colts.

Whether it’s a good idea or not is another question.

There’s a reasonable “What’s it going to hurt?” case to be made for Stanzi. But he hasn’t played in a game in two years for the Chiefs. One of those years has been historically bad offensively.

At some point, the people who see him most must think he’s not an upgrade.
