KC Chiefs: Five Worst Starting Quarterbacks In Team History

With Green out of KC, that meant it was Damon Huard and Brodie Croyle fighting for the starting spot in Kansas City. Brodie Croyle honestly had the starting position handed to him on a silver platter and STILL couldn’t win the job.

Huard and Croyle continued to trade off playing time, as both guys were injured frequently. Brodie ended up starting the final six games of the season, losing all of them, and proving he wasn’t ready to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.

Croyle’s 2008 season was short, as he and Huard both continued their injury riddled season(s). Tyler Thigpen stepped in and despite only winning one game as a Chief, looked a hell of a lot better than Croyle ever did.

For some reason in 2009, the Chiefs decided to keep Croyle on the team over Thigpen after the team had acquired Matt Cassel from the Patriots. Thigpen was traded to Miami and the KC Chiefs were once again stuck with Brodie Croyle on the roster.

I was very upset about this at the time because Croyle had done nothing for the Chiefs during his previous years there. Thigpen had shown he had some talent so the decision just didn’t make any sense to me. Thigpen could throw, run, and was actually able to win a game as a starter, something Croyle never did in the pros.

2010 was Croyle’s last season in Kansas City. He started one game (against the Chargers) when Cassel underwent an emergency appendectomy. Croyle was unable to do anything for the offense in that game and the Chiefs were shut out 31-0 as a result. Admit it Chiefs fans. You missed Matt Cassel that week.

Croyle left Kansas City after 2010 and briefly signed with the Arizona Cardinals. He announced his retirement from the National Football League in 2012.

Not being able to win a single game as a starter is pretty bad and that is why Brodie Croyle is the second worst starting quarterback in Kansas City Chiefs history. Now who is it that’s worse than him?
