The Brady Quinn experiment will continue in Kansas City. Chiefs Head Coach Romeo Crennel announced today that Quinn will retain the starting quarterback job for this Sunday's game against the Oakland Raiders after making his first start with the team in a 38-10 blowout by the Tampa Bay Buccanneers last Sunday.

The Chiefs had a bye this weekend, and the break was expected to give regular starter Matt Cassel time to recover from a concussion suffered in week 5's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. However, Crennel has indicated that Quinn is the permanent starter, regardless of Cassel's injury status.

"I want (Quinn) to be the starting quarterback without looking over his shoulder," Crennel said.

Quinn went 22-38 against the Bucs last weekend, throwing for 180 yards and two interceptions.
