Bills Coach Weighs In On Chiefs Quarterback Situation

Buffalo Bills interim head coach Perry Fewell is no stranger to quarterback controversies.  He's currently leading a team that has a former quarterback of the future in Trent Edwards, a non-quarterback of the future in Ryan Fitzpatrick and a question mark in practice squad quarterback Brian Brohm.

Like Kansas City, the quarterback situation has been hotly debated in Buffalo.

Fewell weighed in on Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley's decision to let Brodie Croyle finish last week's game after Cassel and Co. struggled mightily.

"If you’re struggling in the ball game sometimes it’s good to go back and watch and assess what’s going on out there," Fewell said via Josh Looney of "Sometimes you learn better by watching what’s happening rather than being in that fire and you’re able to process some things and come back and be a better player the next week."

It's a good point and one that has been made by a few folks around here.  Haley even suggested that Cassel's seat on the bench could teach him a lesson - not necessarily in a negative way, either.

"That’s probably what took place in that football game," the Bills head coach explained. "He was struggling, he had a tough time in that ball game and Coach Haley felt like he needed to see from the sideline what happening so he could understand, not from a rapid fire, bullets are coming at me standpoint, but from a teaching-learning session."

You can agree or disagree with the man but I think there's a very strong argument that the Chiefs are in a better situation at quarterback than the Bills.  In fact, I think that's definitely the case.
