Brodie Croyle To Start In 2008

Bleacher ReportAnalyst IAugust 10, 2008

Brodie Croyle is finally going to be the starter in Kansas City. The Chiefs quarterback was drafted in the 2006 NFL Draft in the third round as the 85th overall selection. Croyle dropped to the third round after being pronounced "prone to injuries", after he was injured in high school and when he played for Alabama.

The Chiefs front office seem to like Croyle, and they gave him chances last year to be the starter, but he proved that he wasn't ready. But now, Croyle seems to have grown up, and by his performance against Chicago on August 8, he seems to be ready to step into the starting role.

Croyle will have plenty of weapons, including All-Pro Tight End Tony Gonzales, second year WR Dwayne Bowe, and RB Larry Johnson. Bowe is coming off of a very impressive rookie year in which he made 70 catches for 995 yards and six touchdowns, and we all know what Gonzales and Johnson can do.

So it seems as if it his Croyle's decision. Does he want to be Kansas City's quarterback of the future, or does he want to be a wasted draft pick? It's his decision.
