Isn't Tom Brady listed as questionable every week by the Patriots no matter what?

Yeah, we're not going to know hardly anything until the game starts. They do have to release an official injury report on Wednesday that will probably have him listed as questionable, but that's about it.

Yep.

He's been listed as questionable - shoulder for several years leading up to his knee injury.

We'll likely never know the true extent of Cassel's injury.

Given that they kept four quarterbacks? I'd bet he's out. Although he'll probably be listed as "Questionable" and it'll be labeled a "game-time decision". Realistically, though... starting him against Baltimore would pretty much be like putting a bullet in the kid's noggin. No way he plays, IMO.

He is our best chance of winning in Baltimore, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if they set him out till week2 so he doesn't get killed. Throw Tin Foil Croyle in there for cannon fodder.

i agree. im thinkin he comes back for the raiders but it would probably be best if we brought him back after we play the nfc east.....

Probably won't know until game time.

This may be an advantage we have going for us as Baltimore will not know who to focus their gameplan against...

...not that it will be devastating to them if they plan for Brokie and get Cassel.

...but it's 'something' to our advantage. :shrug:

Well, as I ventured in another thread, I think the Chiefs are probably 2-5 by their bye week and possibly 4-7 before the last five games. But they could easily run the table in those last five, so if things go right early on... :shrug: I know it sounds ridiculous right now, but 9-7 or better is not impossible. Now, key to that would be having Cassel healthy for the second half of the season. And, frankly, the way he went down, it looked like a season-ender. Why rush him back, only to get him killed during the beginning part (and the hardest part) of the season? Let him heal, let Thigpen run for his life for a while and/or see if Croyle can stay healthy, while letting the team get its feet wet.

Yeah, but Baltimore's game plan is probably "Send The House, Kill The QB" no matter who it is. (Actually, more like, "Stuff the run and force the QB to attempt to find a passing target".)

And, sorry, I just can't wrap my head around the "game plan for Croyle or Thigpen" idea... :)

Either you are a pussy or you are not a pussy. If they "hold him out" because it's Baltimore, then fire all their chicken shit, yellow bellied asses. 53 guys versus 53 guys all earning a paycheck. Time to do your job. I'm ready for the Chiefs to knock these Ravens dicks right in the dirt.

If Cassel is at 70%, meaning is unable to move around the pocket to the best of his ability then it would be fuckin idiotic to have him toe tagged in the 1st game of the season.

IF he's healthy he should play.

You can't run and hide everytime a good defense steps on the field with you.

He's already been through that stage. I appreciate your competitive spirit, but this team has barely laid the first set of foundational stones for the pyramid.
If he's not 100 percent, and if he can't be 100 percent against the Ravens defense; he should not play.

It's a long season, and I don't want him permanently damaged. Starting him for the home opener is perfectly acceptable.

I'm sure the Ravens are trembling at the thought of trying to stop the Chiefs offense. The coaching staff can't keep the defensive players from laughing during the film sessions.
This game has 27-3 written all over it.

Wow, I agree with what some are saying here. Sounds like some of you want Cassel not to play even if he is 100% just because it is the Ravens. I just don't get that, if he is healthy, play, if not don't. The team we are playing against shouldn't make a difference. Play the players that give us the best chance to win (even if the best chance is minimal), I thought that is what we brought Pioli and Haley in for.

Lol! Croyle missed significant time in high school, college, and now the NFL. If memory serves, he has now blown out both knees, and couldn't get through one game last season.

He is the definition of injury prone.

Quick Hit Announces Starting Line-Up of 2009 NFL Players

Quick Hit, Inc. ("Quick Hit"), a leading developer and publisher of premium, free-to-play online sports games, today announced its five "Starters" for the 2009 Quick Hit Football™ season. The National Football League superstars include:


-- Matt Cassel - Quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs
-- Ray Lewis - Linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens
-- Osi Umenyiora - Defensive End for the New York Giants
-- Brian Westbrook - Running Back for the Philadelphia Eagles
-- Jason Witten - Tight End for the Dallas Cowboys

As Starters, these five NFL stand-outs will be prominently featured in the single player version of the game and throughout the website. Each Starter will have a key role on one of the Head Coach teams this season, including teams led by Bill Cowher, Brian Billick, Jimmy Johnson, Dan Reeves and Tom Landry. Fans will see, for example, the incomparable Ray Lewis reunited under the expert leadership of Coach Billick, and get a chance to experience his bone-crushing tackles first-hand in a free-to-play, online football game.

"Our 2009 Starters are some of the premier players in the NFL and give even more authenticity to Quick Hit Football," said Jeffrey Anderson, founder and CEO of Quick Hit. "We're excited to offer fans the chance to play against these elite players -- whether it's trying to stop Umenyiora's pass rush or Westbrook's power sweep."

Fans will be able to play against Quick Hit Football's 2009 Starters in single-player mode:


-- Matt Cassel -- He burst into the NFL as the New England Patriots'
starting Quarterback last season, leading them to an impressive 11-5 record
while passing for 21 TDs and 3,693 yards. He's only the fifth player to
have back-to-back 400-yard passing games.

Again, nothing has ever been reported about his injury. For all we know, he's fine.

Starting QB Matt Cassel was taking part in the team’s Monday morning practice, dressed out in full pads like everyone else. Cassel did appear to be wearing a brace on his injured left knee.

With the regular season underway, the media is allowed only a brief 20-25 minute glimpse into practice. In that time, Cassel worked with the other three quarterbacks on individual position drills. When the QBs shuffled through some pads on the ground, Cassel did not take part.

And when he worked taking a snap and dropping back to pass, he did so gingerly. Same with his follow through on that left leg. It was obvious that he was far from 100 percent.
