Brodie Croyle……Once the great hope for one of the worst Kansas City Chiefs teams in history, now….well now I had to look up the Kansas City Roster to make sure he is still listed. And he is….
I saw every single home game Brodie played in. Every one. In person. Thankfully, from the upper level in those days, the only thing that kept this Arrowhead Adventurer from running on the field and screaming.
Come to think of it, I guess I have seen every single televised Kansas City Chiefs game this young man participated in too.
And out of all those games, I can only remember a single one in which Brodie played like a true team leader.
The 2009 season opener vs Baltimore.
Brodie completed 16 of 24 passes for 177 yards and two….yes two (are these the only two he ever scored?) touchdowns while Matt Cassel recovered from an injury that scared the hell out of me in my newly aquired lower level seats during a preseason game of that year.
All those games I saw Brodie play in, (and the games he didn’t) showed me that Brody has one of the strongest throwing arms in the NFL today.
I’ve seen Brodie throw pass after pass straight as a string, many bouncing of an astonished recievers hands, and accurate too.
Sadly, I’ve seen him throw what seems like just as many into the opposing defenses astonished arms as well. Passes Brody could force in college, cannot be forced in the good old NFL.
And here we are….
It’s for sure (in my opinion) that Matt Cassel is the future of Kansas City. But what about a backup? Last year Brodie proved (to me anyway) that he can’t even play that position when he made a brief appearance (what the hell was it in San Diego?) and was destroyed.
And so with out further delay, I say it’s time for Mr Croyle and his hot wife to move on.
If anyone would be interested in him…..If not, then his NFL career should be over.
I think we are wasting precious roster space and salary money on Croyle.
How about you?
