â†µBrodie Croyle and Damon Huard, the champions on the Kansas City depth chart, are done, sent to the injured reserve after pains suffered a week ago. The illustrious Tyler Thigpen will again be your starter. (By "illustrious" I mean "pretty terrible." I guess this is referred to as sarcasm?) Holding the clipboard for Herm Edwards will be former Jacksonville scrub Quinn Gray, who apparently weighs more than Eric Mangini. Dwayne Bowe or Tony Gonzalez might be third on the depth chart; I'm not sure.
â†µChiefs fans deserve, if nothing else, a diversion, a distraction from the disaster on the grass. There's no chance whatsoever Culpepper is in game shape ... but who cares? He's still more interesting than Thigpen or Gray. And if your team has little chance to even compete (let alone win), why not pull all the stops to provide a little entertainment ... even if that's in the form of a Roman statue gunning the ball 20 yards ahead of his receivers?â†µ
