Romeo Crennel Says Chiefs QB Will Be Kyle Orton Or Ricky Stanzi

We ran a poll this morning asking who will start at quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs when they line up against the Green Bay Packers this weekend. The choices include every QB on the roster -- Tyler Palko, Kyle Orton and Ricky Stanzi.

The results have 51 percent saying it'll be Orton, 35 percent saying it'll be Stanzi and 12 percent with Palko.

We can now eliminate one of those names from contention. Romeo Crennel said at his Wednesday press conference (and as reported by Nick Wright) that there will indeed be a change at quarterback, which means Palko, who started the last four weeks, is out of contention for the starting job this week.

That leaves Orton and Stanzi. Crennel said Orton will start -- if he's healthy. He dislocated a finger on his throwing hand and was inactive last week so we aren't sure of his status for Sunday against Green Bay. The Chiefs will start practicing today so we should have a better idea of what Orton's status is as the week goes on.

But the Palko era is over. We're lookin' at Orton or Stanzi on Sunday, which should make more than a few fans happy.

I gotta say -- this is a good first step for Crennel.
