I have seen a lot of people buying into Brodie Croyle this year again. He has been given two full years to be the guy in KC, in 2007 Herm Edwards gave him every opportunity to be the starter. Trent Green is even on record saying that the competition for starter was stacked in Croyle's favor. Damon Huard still won the job . Huard and Croyle traded playing time most of the year because neither could stay healthy.
Croyle has started 8 games and played in 11 and had only 6 TD's and 6 INT's. He has shown he has an arm and can sometimes move the team down the field but he can't seem to get the TD's. He was given the starting job in 2008 and only lasted two games. Scoring only about 10 points a game will not get you far in the NFL,and not being able to stay healthy would worry me to have him as my back-up.
To compare with our other possible back-up QB, Tyler Thigpen has never been given starting QB reps in the off season in fact was the 3rd string so he didn't get very many reps at all. To play as well as he did from coming off the bench as the 3rd stringer is to be commended. He has problems with accuracy and is unpredictable at times but who knows how good he could be if he had the reps that Croyle has had.
As far as Matt Gutierrez, haven't seen enough of him but some of the fans in NE liked him.
