Tyler Thigpen Is the Future in Kansas City

Filed under: Chiefs, AFC WestThis was supposed to be Brodie Croyle’s team. The Chiefs selected him in the third round of the 2006 draft, and between clipboard duty and recovering from various ailments, the former Alabama star never could stay healthy long enough to make a case for why he was the long-term answer at quarterback.

Instead, it’s become … wait, what? Tyler Thigpen’s gig?

Yep, that’s right, former Chanticleer and Vikings seventh-round pick is the future in Kansas City. Well, for now, anyway. Which is why head coach Herm Edwards isn’t quite ready to crown his ass: “Let’s don’t anoint him … Don’t put so much pressure on this poor guy. He went from Atlanta, where everybody was going, ‘Whoa, whoa,’ and all of a sudden he plays this game, his second start, he plays good. … He’s still learning. He has to keep playing, keep growing.” Two thoughts: it’s a good thing Jim Colletto isn’t mentoring this guy, and maybe the Vikings shoulda kept him on the roster. I’m not saying he’s the next Tony Romo, Pseudo-Savior!, but given how things are playing out in Minnesota, you can never have enough arms around when the current starter is 37 years old, and the franchise quarterback is currently running the scout team.

If Thigpen does work out, it’ll allow the Chiefs to focus on shoring up their many other deficiencies, which would be nice. Of course, if he bombs over the final nine weeks then, well, we’ll probably be talking about which quarterback the team will take with their top-5 first-round pick next April.
