PostSubject: Ricky Stanzi could be rising up the ranks   Sat Jun 02, 2012 11:24 am

Posted by Mike Florio on June 2, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

APIn March, the Chiefs pursued flirted played tonsil hockey with evaluated quarterback Peyton Manning. Eventually, the Chiefs added former Browns and Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn.

Quinn’s knowledge of new coordinator Brian Daboll’s offense prompted speculation that the former first-rounder may have a chance to unseat Matt Cassel. As it turns out, Cassel should perhaps be more concerned about Ricky Stanzi.

According to Nick Toney of KCChiefs.com, Stanzi supplanted Quinn this week as the second-team quarterback during Organized Team Activities.

Coach Romeo Crennel wasn’t asked about the backup-quarterback battle during a post-practice media availability on Friday. But it’s no secret that the Chiefs like Stanzi. A fifth-round pick in 2011, Stanzi played at Iowa for Kirk Ferentz, who has a strong relationship with Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli.

Last month, Pioli defended the decision not to draft a signal-called in 2012 by explaining that the team has “three good quarterbacks.”

Quinn and Stanzi presumably will battle it out during training camp for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart. At least Quinn won’t have to worry about billboards or other fan-driven efforts that would make Stanzi the first man off the bench even if Quinn wins the fight, fairly and squarely.

If Stanzi takes over as the starter, someone might have to come calm me down. I am an Iowa fan and not very many iowa QBs get a chance like this.

Chiefs | Ricky Stanzi could become starter
Tue, 17 Jul 2012 12:18:33 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and quarterbacks coach have praised the work of QB Ricky Stanzi as he battles for the backup job with QB Brady Quinn. "We drafted a quarterback last year who I truly believe has good ability and has the potential to start in this league," Pioli said. "I really do believe that."

This sucks because I thought Satnzi had a chance. but now that Pioli likes him I'm not so sure. Pioli still thinks Cassel is a hall of famer.

Calling Stanzi a starter in the NFL isn't really high praise. Matt Cassel is a starter too. He would likely start for another team in the NFL too, because we are far from the only team without a Super Star QB.

Stanzi has allot of the same abilities as a Tom Brady. Thats just watching him and how he leads his team. Guys love to play with him. If he realizes that potential is another story. Stanzi could sit back and take everything in and become one of those QBs that comes out of nowhere. If he listens to Zorn and waits for his chances and takes advantage. It could happen.

Its just funny that most Iowa fans I'd talk to Stanzi's senior year didn't even like him and was just waiting for him to make another stupid play.

Thats just because they were bitter about his performance as a sophomre and the first few games of his junior year. He did very well at the end of his junior year and his senior year. Not allot of mistakes and his teammates loved playing with him.
With all of that I still dont think he is really that talented. But they did say those things about brady.
