For now, at least, the job is Croyle’s. Haley indicated that how long Croyle plays against the Rams could depend on how well he plays.
So if Croyle has a good showing against the Rams, he not only could win the job for the Baltimore game but also leave little playing time for Thigpen in St. Louis to show his stuff.

Neither will be playing for the Chiefs this season. Darling, who tore knee ligaments during last weekend’s game against Seattle, was placed on the injured-reserve list. Boone was released.
So is the team’s depth chart important? Yes and no. It can’t be taken as gospel on who will start and who is running with the second or third team.
But right now the depth chart serves a purpose for Haley.
"Every day as a staff we look at it and talk about it and just massage it a little bit," Haley said of the depth chart. "Who’s paying attention and who’s not and if that correlates into bad practices or not practicing then we’ve got to put guys we can count in there.
"We’re going to be playing here in not too long for real and we need guys we can count on."
Dealing In Depth Charts … Wednesday Cup O’Chiefs from Bob Gretz
Although they compete in different conferences, play in different-style stadiums and arrived in the NFL from different directions, the Rams and Kansas City Chiefs are inexorably linked by their proximity.St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs face same difficult task from The St. Louis Post-Dispatch
And as both outfits labor to resurrect once-proud franchises that have stumbled upon distinctly hard times, they're going about their business in strikingly similar ways.
The Chiefs also have a new head coach as Todd Haley takes over for Herman Edwards following a dismal 2-14 season in 2008. Haley was the offensive coordinator of the NFC champion Cardinals and he'll need all of his offensive wizardry to help the Chiefs muster up any shred of respectability this year. Kansas City's defense is woeful and the running game has questions due to a declining Larry Johnson. There are some fantasy options here, however.

I’m going to start off with a warning for the billions of Tyler Thigpen fans out there, but I absolutely think Todd Haley did the right thing by naming Brodie Croyle as the starting quarterback for Thursday night’s game in St. Louis.
And though Haley didn’t say this, he hinted that the job is now Croyle’s to lose.

Loser - Chan Gailey knows a little something about hasty firings, having been booted as Cowboys head coach after just two years despite going to the playoffs both seasons (in 1998-99). But his dismissal as Chiefs offensive coordinator on Monday, three days before Kansas City's final preseason game, was still a stunner. It's also a pretty good indication that the disarray the Chiefs appear to be in on offense is no mirage.
