Nearly two out of three Kansas City Chiefs fans believe Ricky Stanzi will beat out Brady Quinn and end up being the No. 2 quarterback on the roster this year. We ran a poll yesterday asking who will be the top backup on the team behind Matt Cassel and with well over 2,000 votes Stanzi came in with 63 percent of the vote while Quinn received 36 percent of the vote.

We had some backup quarterback talk on 610 Sports today with Carrington Harrison and Mark Carman. I mentioned that the best case scenario here is Stanzi winning the job.

Quinn, at this point, is just a guy. (Those of you who know my feelings on Quinn understand that that's a hard sentence to type.) He has some experience but in the last four years he hasn't been able to establish himself. You have a decent idea of who Quinn is. Stanzi, on the other hand, is young enough that you can still believe there's a potential factor there. He's a draft pick, which means the Chiefs thought at one point he had a chance to at least become the backup in Kansas City.

The Chiefs are installing a new offense this year so Stanzi doesn't have a head start in that regard. The competition, by various accounts, is fairly even. Romeo Crennel said last week that Quinn is ahead but the two continue to split reps at No. 2.

Without a clear winner in the competition, it seems likely that a decision won't be made until training camp.
