Overall against the K.C. defense he’s hit 43 of 74 passes for 473 yards with 2 touchdown passes and 2 interceptions. Campbell also ran eight times for 39 yards.

In his career, he’s a 60.8 percent passer, averaging 6.7 yards per attempt and throwing 76 touchdowns passes and 52 interceptions.

    This will make the 3rd time in four weeks the Chiefs have faced a backup (different) QB. Some view this trend as a big advantage. I see it as a big disadvantage because you don’t know how to prepare for the new guy. This will require another halftime adjustment by Sutton…thank God he is god at it!

    Fully agree with napahank. I have tons of confidence in our D and coaches. Probably will see a Pryor-type offensive gameplan instead of Case Whatshisname.

    The 1 thing in common… mobile QBs…that seems to be there answer for our DF.They don’t want a sitting duck back there, when we bring the heat.It seems to have slowed our front down w/the threat of him running . Like the ex coach that like to read & then react… as they went by on the run of 50yrds.While Manning gets the ball out quick ,he might be the biggest sitting duck on our schedule . That’s why they well try to run the ball( not Manning ) to slow the front 7 down .The great coaches after a half seems to be able to adjust to what they are doing.Sutton so far has had the answers,that is why we have been better in the 2nd half. GO Chiefs

    If Campbell was all that, he wouldn’t be a journeyman QB.

    RW, you are right. What gives me pause is that anybody can, on a given day, have a career game.

    Just ask Matt Flynn.

    They can have a career day on any given day, but can also see their career go in the drink with a really horrible showing when they get a crack at starting. The Chiefs defense and the Arrowhead crowd have the kind of ability that makes that a possibility, too. Let’s hope the Chiefs at least remind everyone exactly why Campbell hasn’t been a starter in the league for quite some time.

    kc, does Ryan Leaf with the Chargers ring a bell?

    His career basically ended at Arrowhead.

    And that defense is no where close to this one.

    Yes, I remember it well. There have been many others.
