A collection of analysts on NFL.com believe there are at least five teams in that league that should strongly consider a change at quarterback. The Buccaneers’ upcoming opponent is on their list.
The Chiefs may have no choice but to go with Brady Quinn under center if incumbent starter Matt Cassel is unavailable due to the head injury he suffered on Sunday against Baltimore. On Monday, Kansas City Head Coach Romeo Crennel confirmed that Cassel has a concussion but said tests are ongoing and that Cassel has not yet been ruled out of this Sunday’s game in Tampa. In a transcript of his Q&A on the Chiefs’ own web site, Crennel says that Quinn “needs to get ready to play.”
The “Instant Debate” on potential QB changes on NFL.com brings in Ian Rapoport, Gregg Rosenthal, Chad Reuter, Charley Casserly, Adam Rank and Jason Smith and asks them to identify which teams should make a switch right now. Both Rapoport and Casserly tab the Chiefs.
Rapoport says that Cassel is not the long-term answer in Kansas City, and Casserly says there is momentum right now for the switch to be made. Check out the debate here and see what other teams the NFL.com analysts are urging to make that most dramatic of depth chart maneuvers.
