Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel was not ready to name a starting quarterback after Friday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. Although Crennel's has been pretty truthful in his assessment about the team, it's always best to judge a coach by what he does, not what he says.

Crennel on Friday night chose to put Brady Quinn into the game with about three and a half minutes left in the third quarter. Ricky Stanzi, meanwhile, did not play at all.

That's a pretty clear indication of where the Chiefs backup quarterback competition stands.

Even without Friday's rotation Quinn is the obvious leader in this.

After a game like the one against the Seahawks the backup quarterback is probably the least of your worries but Cassel's likely to miss a game at some point this season. It will matter eventually.

The Chiefs final preseason game comes on Thursday night against the Packers. Quinn will likely be the first one in behind Cassel, if Cassel plays at all.

Crennel said he would make a decision on the backup quarterback after he watched the film. We could hear his answer as soon as this evening.
