The news rocked the state of Iowa.
Never mind that just last week Crennel said that the Chiefs probably wouldn't throw him out there just to see what they have. Never mind that Stanzi doesn't even dress on game days. And never mind that two different head coaches have kept Stanzi behind the likes of Tyler Palko, Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn.
When Stanzi nation heard the news that No. 13 might possibly maybe dress for the game, they reacted in the way they usually do -- all at once.

RICKY STANZI FINALLY— Feller Allen Kyle (@KyleFeller22) December 17, 2012
I did find who is apparently the only person on Twitter who does NOT like him some Ricky Stanzi.
Well, he's no fun.
