Just thought it needed it's own thread if it hasn't been posted already. Feel free to post other videos as well...

looks like good accuracy and good arm strength.

Yeah boy, he sure does have a weak arm.

What a joke...hilarious that people were bringing that up as a possible negative.

Man, why do people who make this videos always put in ridiculously bad soundtracks?

at least it isn't "misirlou", like every other highlight reel on youtube

Notice in those highlights that he hung up 34 - 0 on the denver broncos, thats a QB I can support.

Pablo
02-28-2009, 01:36 PM
Yeah..his arm looked terribly weak and he sure couldn't throw a deep ball at all.

Nice video! :thumb:

I'm pumped up about this season for the first time. I think we actually have a chance to win the West if we can add a few more pieces over the next few days and in the draft.

Damn Moss is good.

Definitely didn't see any arm strength issues on that video. Also, GREAT footwork, composure, form. I love it.

That punt was awesome! I don't see how people are ragging on his arm strength.

Yup, Cassel pretty much abused Denver on MNF- didn't hurt that that was the game where Champ Bailey tore his groin, so I think they were caught a little off guard on that one.

Pablo
02-28-2009, 01:43 PM
That punt was awesome! I don't see how people are ragging on his arm strength.I dunno..I think people see prospects like Stafford and guys like Cutler that have rockets and by default guys like Cassel and Sanchez have "weak arms".

chiefzilla1501
02-28-2009, 01:50 PM
Yeah, hopefully this puts the "weak arm" theory to rest.

He might not throw a great deep ball, but I still don't understand why people are so enamored with being able to gun it deep. Tom Brady actually threw a really lousy deep ball his first season. What impressed me most here is that he does a terrific job of throwing the ball when his feet aren't set. he throws very hard when he rolls right and threw a lot of tough passes without his back feet set. Arguably, on throws where he tries to get a lot of juice, he seems to have a bit of a wind-up, but yeah... there is obviously no concern about his ability to throw with any velocity.

I am ecstatic about this move right now.

Looks pretty good not my 1st choice but now he's the Chiefs Qb I support him 100%.

Much better arm than some of the tools around here suggest.

Gravedigger
02-28-2009, 02:05 PM
He throws a far better deep ball than Thigpen.

Could that be the reason Matt was special last year?

No doubt he looks good. Great pocket movement to find the open man. Good arm strength to get it there as well.


This was a great move by Scott.

The game that really sold me on cassel was the oakland game.
Goes into oakland and throws 4 td passes and plays on oaklands field like its his mom's backyard.
A good trait to have as a KC qb.

DaWolf

He actually seemed more keen on going to Welker last year.

Randy Moss can either be a QB booster or a QB killer. While it no doubt helps having his abilities on your team, it also says a lot that Cassel was able to keep him interested and get him the ball when he needed, cause Moss can quit on you real fast if he doesn't believe in the QB...

He threw to a 2nd option exactly twice that entire video. Playing out of the spread with that offensive line and those receivers creating space and running with the football after the catch makes him look decent, but I don't think I've seen someone consistently stare down an initial read so hard. He's not gonna be able to get away with that to the same degree on this ball club.

Mr. Flopnuts
02-28-2009, 02:45 PM
He's going to be a major upgrade over Tyler Thigpen.

Dustin Colquitt has competition. I had thought we might had been set at punter, but I guess not...hmmm.... I don't exactly know if we should have given up a 2nd rounder for a new punter, but hey.....what do I know?

My only concern is that just like Thigpen he operated mostly out of the shotgun based on that video. Of course, he did a hell of alot better out of the shotgun. Just hope he can become more comfortable operating under center. Unlike Thigpen, I actually have faith that Cassel can improve in that area.

His pocket presence is crazy and nice mobility. He was accurate and had a good deep ball.

He did operate mostly out of the shotgun, but so did Brady in 2007. McDaniels just loves the shotgun spread, so I wouldn't read too much into it in terms of Cassel's ability to operate from under center (although clearly he has relatively little experience with it). Personally, I don't see any reason why he can't develop that skill if he doesn't have it already. He's intelligent, has a great work ethic, mobility, and very good pocket presence. Besides, based on what Haley built over in Arizona, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you guys used the #3 on Crabtree, signed Housh, and came out next year in a shotgun spread-based offense featuring Crabtree, Housh, Bowe, and Gonzalez. You'd have LBs trying to cover Gonzalez and nickel corners trying to cover Bowe... the offense is very close to being good.

That would seem to be Haley's preference and fits with what Gailey ran last year. It certainly makes it clear that LJ is expendable...

I prefer the Tyler Thigpen highlight reel myself... :p

A couple observations:
1. Looks very accurate and good to me, love his scrappiness. It does seem like he and Tyler have a similar game, he's just better at it. Which is good, because our entire offense doesn't have to change if he goes down and Tyler comes in.

2. I wish we were getting Moss and Welker. Crazy good.

3. The Patriots o-line doesn't seem very good. In fact, they look like bottom 30% in the league handling outside rushes. This gives me hope for him behind our line. I think Brady's extremely quick read and release has made that O-line look better than it really is.

Why? Because Cassel went to USC?

I didn't like that particular song, though the lyrics did fit Cassel's situation quite well...

But if you hate on Queen again, I will... well I won't do anything substantial, because it's a message board. But I'll neg-rep the shit outta you. So yeah... take that....

That's true- the Pats' O-Line is hugely overrated. Matt Light gets manhandled by the elite pass-rushers at LT, Neal is perpetually hurt at RG, Kaczur is alright at RT, Mankins is usually very good at LG (but disappears at times), and Koppen is good, at C, but gets absolutely dominated by 3-4 NTs. If you want to see the true talent of the Pats' OL, just look at the 2007 SB. Brady was injured, so he lost a lot of his pocket mobility, and the result was that the OL just got abused.

It was also on display when Cassel came in at the start of last year. Once Neal returned from injury, the line solidified a bit, but for those first games Cassel wasn't just starting for the first time since high school; he was starting for the first time since high school against a below-average offensive line.

Another thing that hasn't been mentioned is that like Brady, Cassel doesn't make a lot of stupid mistakes. He's an excellent manager of the game. By the end of the season he was playing like Brady about 5 years ago. Look at tapes of the game at Oakland or Miami, the home game vs the Jets or Arizona. He was terrific.

I'm surprised by his mobility on a couple of those plays.

Of course, he's no Thigpen.

Retarded.

You never saw him force a ball into a first receiver who was covered. He threw to the first guy whenever he was open.

You don't look to the second option when the first one is open.

I know I'll probably take some heat for saying this but, if I couldn't see the number on the jersey, I'd have told you that was Tom Brady in that highlight video. Very impressive! I had really only seen him against us in week one.

02-28-2009, 06:22 PM
This guy is a ball player! He throws the deep ball as well as anybody, and I will say something Ive already said before we signed Cassel....That throw to Randy Moss Vs the Jets was the greatest throw ive EVER seen in my life. Welcome home Mr. Cassel

hes impressive, he seems to be nearly as accurate as Brady, with more mobility. Thigpen with a stronger arm? and taller of course.

DaWolf
02-28-2009, 07:06 PM
One thing that came to mind watching it is that considering the winter weather in KC, there's at least film on this guy playing in bad weather, and we know he has done it. I still cringe at the thought of Steve Bono in January...

Cassel reads defenses quicker than Thigpen. Don't agree that NE's line wasn't that good. Look at the aggressive blocking schemes on the pass. That's another difference. Upgrade without rolling the dice on drafting a QB in the first.

Great move.
