Before this season I never thought I would've seen Matt Cassel benched in Kansas City. And before this season I never would've thought Clark Hunt should consider firing Scott Pioli.
A lot of things have happened this season that I never thought would actually happen. Or at least I couldn't fathom at this time last year.
So, why not a new one this year -- Ricky Stanzi.
Romeo Crennel said something today that's made a few folks if we could maybe, actually, finally see Ricky Stanzi in a game. He said any players that turn it over could be subject to the bench.
Even the quarterback?
"Well, yes, you can make a change there," Crennel said, via comments sent out by the Chiefs.
But...there's always a but.
"But the thing is that you always have to know exactly what happened on the play and why it happened," Crennel continued. "So if a receiver tips the ball up in the air, is that on the receiver or is that on the quarterback? Then I have to make that determination. So I'll make the call and I'll sit the receiver or I'll sit the quarterback."
So Romeo qualified that quite a bit but at no point in the last year and a half have I thought Stanzi could actually play more than a few snaps.
Is this the week?
