Getty Images During last week’s on the field OTA’s, back up quarterback Ricky Stanzi was the one who led the second team offense onto the field, not Brady Quinn who was just signed this offseason.

I wouldn’t be shocked at all if the Chiefs end up being comfortable with Stanzi as the second quarterback going into this coming season.
