[Kansas City.com] Chiefs interim head coach Romeo Crennel said on Wednesday morning that Kyle Orton or Ricky Stanzi will be the starting quarterback Sunday against Green Bay. Tyler Palko is going back to the bench.
“I told the team this morning that we’re making a change at quarterback and that Tyler (Palko) would not be the starter this week,” Crennel said in his opening statement. “(Kyle) Orton or (Ricky) Stanzi will be the starter.”
Crennel also made it abundantly clear that the decision to change quarterbacks was his own.
“After I talked to Tyler this morning, I informed Scott Pioli that the change was going to be made,” Crennel said. “It was my decision, I told Tyler that it was my decision and I made it.”
If Orton’s finger is healthy, he’ll be the guy. If not, it’s Stanzi.
Palko has started the last four games for the Chiefs, leading them to a 1-3 record. He compiled a completion percentage of 59.7 and threw just two touchdown passes and seven interceptions.
