The Chiefs Are Interested In Daunte Culpepper

The Kansas City Chiefs have used a lot of different quarterbacks this season.   They started off with Brodie Croyle, but since Brodie appears to be made out of rubber bands and popsicle sticks, he can’t go longer than five plays without breaking something.  Croyle returned to the field on Sunday after missing the Chiefs last four games with a seperated shoulder, and promptly hurt his left knee and is now out for the season.

(And yet no one is talking about firing Herm Edwards…yet.)
