Crennel Makes a Switch at QB’s for the Chiefs

It took a total of one day for interim head coach Romeo Crennel to switch QB’s for the Chiefs.

Crennel has decided to bench quarterback Tyler Palko and will start either Kyle Orton or Ricky Stanzi for Sunday’s game against the Packers on Sunday.

One of Crennel’s first decisions was to make the switch at quarterback. “I just felt like it would be better for them to know that there would be a different quarterback,” Crennel said Wednesday.

“They wouldn’t have to be worried about who the quarterback was going to be and what the coach is going to do.” Orton is dealing with a finger injury and will start if healthy. If not, it will be Stanzi. “We’ll have to see during the week how [Orton’s] finger is and how it comes along,” Crennel added.

    Hey Romeo – good move canning Palko, now how about playing your future tackle David Mims? What on earth are you waiting for, more film on Barry Richardson giving up the inside rush? David Mims was moved up and Gaither cut for a reason, don’t waste anymore real-time action, play David Mims. Go Chiefs

    David Mims, a diamond in the rough early has been polished into a bright asset for the Chiefs. Please Chief brass, treat David Mims better, he’s your future as you rebuild the line. Both tackle spots are open to David Mims. Here’s what the Chiefs should looking at in 2012 on their O-line.

    LT: Brandon Albert or David Mims
    LG: Open (Ryan Lilja not resigned)
    C: Rodney Hudson
    RG: Jon Asamoah
    RT: David Mims

    Not resigned: Ryan O’Callaghan, Barry Richardson
    Retired: Casey Wiegmann
    Draft: Tackle and Guard
