Chiefs Plan To Play All 4 QBs Vs. Saints


The Kansas City Chiefs will play their first preseason game of 2013 this Friday evening and according to offensive coordinator, Dog Pederson, KC will use all four QB’s on the roster.

“We’ve got four quarters and four quarterbacks,” said Pederson today to media. “Each one will take a quarter, and we’re excited to see them all play.”

That means we will get to see Alex Smith for a full quarter, if the Chiefs stay true to their word. Still, things could change once the game is underway.

For instance, if Smith comes out and leads the Chiefs offense on a 75-yard drive for a touchdown, I would imagine Andy Reid will give him the rest of the night off. Should the offense sputter a bit, Reid may want to ensure they get some more work.

After Smith, Chase Daniel will be next up. He will likely play the tire second quarter before giving way to rookie passer Tyler Bray.

Kansas City Star reporter Adam Teicher confirmed exactly what Pederson said after practice.

Interestingly, veteran QB Ricky Stanzi could be looking at his very last chance to impress Andy Reid. Stanzi is last on the depth chart and should he perform poorly Friday night, there is a chance he will never see the field for the Chiefs again. As the preseason goes on, Smith and then Daniel are likely to get most of the reps in the exhibition games (unless Bray can overtake Daniel which is unlikely)leaving not much, if any, time for Bray and Stanzi.

What do you think, Addicts? Will Friday be the last time Stani sees game action as a Chief?

    The Chiefs have had some really bad QB’s and still never resorted to Stanzi. Even over Palko lol. Probably bc he just really sucks. Bye Bye Stanzi!

    Stanzi is gone. Maybe moved to practice squad bit I have doubts about that also

    • Danny W

      I agree I think we need to cut him.

  • Chris Tarrants

    We could trade Stanzi for another fullback

    • chiefridgy

      Haha

    • Danny W

      Why stop at one we could maybe get two.

    • Justin Williams

      Classic

  • obrien5

    It’s great for us fans, but I’m not sure Alex needs to be in a full quarter.hopefully he is pulled early, but not early enough were we can’t see what he’s got.

  • Mark Bustamante

    I think Stanzi was never given a real chance. He must have some talent
    Because If he didn’t why has he been on our roster do so long?

    • Danny W

      Rick Stanzi sucks Sir. He’s no good.

  • Stacy D. Smith

    I like the way they’re splitting the game up. A full quarter is good work for Game 1 of the preseason.

  • Stephen Doroha

    I’m a die hard Chiefs fan & a Iowa Hawkeyes fan as well I loved the Tony Moaki pick but like in Iowa he has injury problems got Stanzi I liked the pick up of him as well but have been disappointed that he hasn’t developed at all & think its time to move on sorry Ricky!

  • jbyrd

    I didn’t know we had “The Bounty Hunter” as OC. Let’s just hope none of the players get in trouble with the law or Dog Pederson will come calling.

  • kcpauly

    Does anybody know how I can watch the game?
    Go Chiefs!!!!!!!!!!!
