Do you guys think Kennison can continue to play well once Trent Green comes back?

I think he will continue to play well. And I do not believe that Trent is going to come back.

Trent is coming back. Edwards said that when he's healthy he will play. As for Kennison, I don't see much of a change in his production. Kennison never really was great with Green in previous years.

Kennison is one of the most underated WR in the NFL. He's not flashy and he doesn't put up huge numbers, but hes a consistent WR that you know you can count on. He's better in real life than in fantasy with his consistency, toughness, and "workmanlike" attitude. That said, he's a fine 4th WR and a shaky 3rd WR; I would feel comfortable spot starting him on occasion and using him as an insurance policy.

Look for more of the same the rest of the way.

I don't see why they would play Trent. Huard is playing very well, stick with him.

You don't see why they would play Trent Green over Damon Huard? :-?

I mean one is the top-rated passer in team history, and has been a top starter in this league for years, and one is a career back-up...guess which one is which.

Admittedly, Damon is doing great right now, but does anybody really expect him to keep this up?

I'm sure they'll plug Trent back in, I just hope they wait until he's really REALLY ready...they can't afford any games with a faltering QB or an unecessary QB controversy.

I think Kennison will produce at about the same level regardless of Huard/Green. He's one of those solid guys who seems to fly under the radar every season, a nice #3 when the matchups are hot and good insurance on the bench in case of injuries.
Praise Ricky!

Hmm...let's look around the league. One was the best QB in 30 years on his former team, the other was the underachieving face of an NFL laughing stock. (Culpepper/Harrington)

One had an undefeated regular season, a superbowl ring, and the best QB rating under pressure than any QB in the league. The other never amouted to anything and couldn't take a starting job away from Tommy Maddox. (Roethlisberger/Batch)

One is the toughiest, gutsiest QBs in the league who is a darn good passer. The other, most people have never heard of. (Leftwich/Garrard)

You start a guy based on production, not on credentials. I'm a Trent Green guy, but you don't mess with the chemistry Huard has got going.

You'd advocate benching Trent Green, a guy with nearly a career 90.0 passer rating, in favor of Damon Huard? It's not like Green has even shown signs of slowing down at all. And besides, the Chiefs really don't need a QB controversy like this on their hands, especially if they are in the playoff race. When he's ready (and the Chiefs should really make sure he's fully ready before allowing him to come back), he should get his job back. That shouldn't even be a question.

And those examples you gave...the reason for all of those other controversies was performance. It wouldn't be the same case here.

Really? I thought all those QBs were also coming off injuries?
Hey, if Green's bell is no longer ringing and he can step into midseason form, then so be it. But the guy played sparingly in the preseason and didn't complete a regular season game. Essentially, he hasn't played a meaningful regular season game in almost a full year. I'm not saying you're wrong...I'm just saying it isn't as cut and dry as you're making it out to be.
