Edwards Sending Message That Croyle’s His Man

Even though he played well last season in relief of the injured Trent Green, it looks as if Damon Huard is going to take a backseat to Brodie Croyle when it comes to starting games at QB in Kansas City. Croyle, at just 24 years old, has been applauded for his maturity and his poise in Chiefs camp so far, and head coach Herm Edwards has spoken highly of the teams QB of the future. “I like Brodie’s demeanor,” Edwards said. “He comes across laid-back like he’s a southern guy that’s been fishing all day. But he’s a competitor.” Edwards glowing talk about Croyle signals that he is going to give the QB every shot at being the starter opening day for the Chiefs.

As for Huard, it’s more of a situation of that you know what your getting when he’s in the lineup. Last season he went 5-3 as the starter when Trent Green went down on opening day. He showed signs of playing well, but then had lapses, which is one reason why Edwards won’t come right out and say so, but he wants Croyle to be taking snaps on September 9th in Houston when the team opens the 2007 season.
