Only person on 610 worth listening to is the scabrous Nick Wright. All the others are trash. Fescoe literally knows NOTHING about football. It's amazing listening to him. Shariff doesn't know much about sports so he sticks to stories dealing with things around sport and not the sport itself.

The flea flicker was a good pass. I have seen plenty of QBs choke and throw horrible passes on plays like that. The guy threw for 3 TDs and 250 yards. Save the insults for when he actually deserves it.

He didn't make it but I liked it when he dove head first between two defenders trying to convert a 1st down. Whatever his short commings Cassel is a tough SOB. He took a few big hits yesterday and it didn't phase him. Huard would have been going fetal position after a few of those.

Funny, I saw a pass just like this that Favre threw for a TD and everyone said how great a pass it was.

It would be nice if the Chiefs had more receivers that had hands like Moeaki. Bowe has developed alligator arms to go with his butterfingers.

the way Cassel played, it was an improvement. I wouldn't say he had a great game, 2 of those TDs passes were because of great plays by the player catching them. But he needs to be consistent, 1 decent game don't get me excited. He needs to do this just about every game.

I think we actually have a very good shot of beating Indy. Their team is a little weak this year. Take Manning off that team and they are in the cellar, IMO.

We beat Indy and that would go a long way in gaining some confidence and momentum.

And in this particular game, they made his poor play look like a 112 passer rating on paper. How many passes did he complete over 10 yards? How many of his incomplete passes were over 10 yards?

Honestly, I felt he was playing so poorly in the 1st half, that there was a very real chance of him getting benched. Everything else was clicking, and he was still making bad throw after bad throw.

I dont care how many passes where completed in the "air" over 10 yards. Its about executing the game plan and getting the ball in the hands of the play makers... God damn I appreciate the Rich Gannon type of game from Cassel yesterday. Throw those short passes all day long, let the speed and talent of your playmakers get the yards..

yesterday was a perfect Matty Light game.

Answer me this, how many plays did KC have over 20 years yesterday? Last I heard it was around 8... Thats pretty damn good.

Thankfully this is a team sport and that was a complete team domination yesterday.

If the TD pass to Moeaki had not been in the endzone, and there had been a defender behind him to hit him as he attempted to catch it, Moeaki would have gotten hammered. Thats what you call 'hanging your receivers out to dry'.

Look, Cassel IS playing better. Yesterdays game was an improvement. However, he is not a catalyst on this team. He's a liability. I sincerely hope he continues to improve so I can eat my crow. I'm a Chiefs fan. I love this team and I am excited. I'm rooting for Matt Cassel to succeed.

The flea flicker was a one-and-done. No team is going to fall for that again.

Cassel has to be more consistent down the field for this passing offense to have consistent success. He's not going to throw for 250 and 3 TD's every week with the throws he made yesterday.

ya, and last week it was we can't rely on defense and st's play.

I agree with all of this. However, if Cassel does not improve, it will catch up with this team and cost us some games.Don't be silly. When Cassel plays like he did yesterday, it will always net us 250 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT. We won, therefore nothing went wrong.

Cassel is better than our 90s starting QBs (with the obvious exception of Joe Montana). I'd put Gannon ahead of Cassel too, but I don't think he's what you mean when you say we're on course to be the 90s Chiefs.

The flea flicker was a good pass. I have seen plenty of QBs choke and throw horrible passes on plays like that. The guy threw for 3 TDs and 250 yards. Save the insults for when he actually deserves it.

The end around pass was dog shit. The fucking ball looked like it had helium in it it floated so much. The safety nearly got back to break up the pass the ball was in the air so long. Horrible throw.

All in all, I thought it was one of his lesser games.

And I'm not a Cassel basher by any means. You've got to go with what you got, but he seemed really off yesterday and got bailed out by some innovative play calling (the end around pass) and excellent individual effort (Moeaki's amazing grab and McCluster's excellent RAC).

What if your QB throws for 250 yards, 3 TDs, and one INT in a blowout victory? Would you want him to play like that all year?Like Cassel played? No. I don't want him to play all year like he did yesterday.

The end doesn't always justify the means. Look at the 2003 chiefs. What they did worked 13 times, and only failed 4 times. Does that mean our defense was good that year?

He almost overthrew it so I would have to say it would have been pretty hard for the safety to break that pass up.

Bottom line is he threw 3 TD's.

You see QB's bailed out by good catches every single game. Brett Favre must have a horseshoe up his ass some of the plays his receivers have made over the years. (See great catch by Percy Harvin Sunday).


If you want to bitch, bitch about the dumbass interception or a couple of missed throws.

Yesterday's game was a microcosm of my nightmare vision for the season, where we win going away on what was ultimately a performance not nearly as impressive as his stat line would make you think. I thought he did play better, and while I don't think he's ever going to have pinpoint accuracy, he threw with more authority and seemed to feel more comfortable with what he's doing. His vision of the field appeared to be improved over prior weeks, as did his feel for what was going on. But it was the kind of tease that I'm terrified we'll see all season, "see, look, maybe he can play after all!" Nothing inherently spectacular, but enough to win. Unfortunately I think that game may be generally representative of his ceiling as a player, and it didn't do a whole lot to convince me that he has the physical tools to do the job at the level that I think we need for the team to be a legitimate championship contender. I think that's still in question. It was not "bad" in any way, and play like that could be enough to get this team to 8 or 9 wins this year after the start they've had, but is that enough, going forward?

After two horrible games, it would be hard for anyone, including his mother, to come up with something good to say about Matt Cassel's "on-field play".

I'm not a Cassel fan (never have been, even when he was supposedly playing well in NE) and I would love to see the Chiefs look for a difference making QB next off-season, preferably in the draft. But despite the guy's physical shortcomings, he's got a lot of things you look for in a QB.

"Some things have never been in doubt with Cassel. His passion, leadership and determination are impressive, and those have helped him earn his teammates’ respect. Ask them about Cassel, and these are the things they say about him:

“Matt is a wonderful person,” running back Jamaal Charles says. “A nice person.”

“He has a great work ethic,” wide receiver Chris Chambers says.

“As a person,” left guard Brian Waters says, “he’s definitely more comfortable and definitely more confident.”

But what about his skills? Succeeding at this level, in this league, at this position is about ability more than anything. Cassel’s preseason was forgettable; he threw two interceptions and fumbled twice, overshadowing his three touchdown passes.

With that in mind, does Cassel’s talent match his character? Those same teammates, given a chance to endorse their quarterback’s ability, instead dodge the question. They’re in offensive meetings with Cassel, and they watch game and practice footage of their quarterback. But asked directly if they see an improvement in Cassel’s play — not his personality — and the players hesitate."

Im still not sold on Cassel...the most infuriating thing about him seems to be his reluctance to throw the ball. If everyone's covered get rid of the damn ball out of bounds stop running around with the ball. I tend to think he panics. Given the beatings he took last year, I can understand.

Cassel had a good game, regardless of how bad he sucks. No sacks, 1 INT, stood in the pocket to take the hit and made some key passes that allowed the talent around him to produce. It was one game. This does not mean Cassel no longer sucks. But a good game is a good game and I won't kick a guy when is down and played a good game.

Cassel is a leader? His teammates have confidence in his play?

Where's the article from a little bit ago when approximately 3 players (Waters, Charles, someone else...not remembering) couldn't/wouldn't??? say one positive thing about his on-field play.

Believe it was a Mellinger column.

You question his leadership and then post an article that says "Some things have never been in doubt with Cassel. His passion, leadership and determination are impressive, and those have helped him earn his teammates’ respect."

You fail more than Cassel fails as a QB.

If you want to be intellectually dishonest, be my guest.

I think the point is, Cassel showed he can complete the long throws and showed improvement as the game went on. He played a good game. People already know he didn't play great last year, the stats lines show that. The team is DIFFERENT THIS YEAR. NOBODY KNOWS how good they can become, but damn show some pride for the team, you supposedly love. We ALL KNOW Cassel, still has question marks. The only way to see if he can ANSWER, is to PLAY.

The commentator yesterday talked about the light turning on in the second half of the Cleveland game. Cassel carried that over for the most part in the SF game. It also doesn't hurt to have Weis play to Cassel's strengths.

Yup, to think he doesn't know this is absurd. Do or die. Pretty much the theme of this coaching staff. He'll be gone if doesn't improve..does anyone honestly doubt that?

I think this is why we're starting to see a team with an idenitity.... our special teams and defense have been horrid...not anymore..showing improvement. Two of three phases of the game are looking up in a relatively short amount of time. I expect this coaching staff to continue to elevate the offense.

when we had the great offense with DV, but a crappy defense..how did that work out for us?

fortunately the pressure to put up a ton of points to win is squelched by the defense...therefore giving breathing space for the offense to improve.

Yeah, I disagree with that. He still overthrows his receivers, by a lot. And that pick yesterday was all his fault. He threw the ball too late. I don't think there is a "light" to go on. Matt is what he is. Weis will have to work with it, which he's doing. So maybe Charlie's "light" went on in the 2nd half of the Cleveland game.

Glass half empty = he threw a pick, he overthrows, he threw high to Moeaki.

Glass half full = he threw three TDs, his completion % was acceptable, he didn't take any sacks, the pass to Moeaki was high, but he threw a 20 yard ball on a rope and went for the TD instead of the checkoff to an open Bowe.

There isn't a 3-0 team that is void of issues.

It's almost like some are putting their complaints out there so they can have added fuel to bitch an insane amount about this team.

We are always looking to the future instead of just enjoying these wins as we get them. Cassel does suck, but what sucked worse was winning 10 games in 3 years.I get what you're saying. I completely agree, but I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. I cringe every time I see Cassel in the pocket. I'm to the point now with him that I'm just waiting for him to make a mistake.

I always love it when people throw out the "well I'd like to see you do better."

In reality, two of his three TDs were all done by the receivers and the 3rd was a throw that any NFL QB could make in his sleep.

You can't set the high jump bar at 6" and get excited when he clears it.

If he can play like that for the year, this is a playoff team. And no, I don't mean a back in the playoffs type of team. I mean a win the division type of team.

Yep. If he continues to improve each week and not regress, and if he plays like he did on Sunday against Indy and we win, I'm done riding his ass for the year and it's time to gear up for a RUN.

Im still not sold on Cassel...the most infuriating thing about him seems to be his reluctance to throw the ball. If everyone's covered get rid of the damn ball out of bounds stop running around with the ball. I tend to think he panics. Given the beatings he took last year, I can understand.

I really enjoyed the aggressive play calling of Haley...for all the comparisons to the 90's Chiefs, Marty doesnt call onside kicks or flea flickers when the team has a lead. He plays not to lose and Haley appears to play to win.

The comparisons to the 1990's Chiefs were QB based, not coaching, IMO.

Everyone remembers those teams. Enough talent to win consistently and be a force in the playoffs.

Except the QB held them back.

Same thing is likely going to happen here.

Let's say for sake of argument, that the Class of 2010 is going to be everything they've shown through 3 weeks of their NFL career.

That means all the pieces of the puzzle necessary to make some noise in the postseason are in place - minus the most important position on the field.

Sure, his contract makes it easy to cut him loose after this season.

But then what?

You either draft and develop a franchise QB, and know he's going to go through 2-4 years of growing pains while the rest of your team is ready to compete, or you throw a band-aid on it and sign a stopgap veteran and hope he catches lightning in a bottle.

Draft a QB and you've closed the window on guys like DJ, Hali, Waters, Weigmann, Lilja, etc. They'll all be out of their prime in 3-4 years. Opportunity wasted.

Sign a stop gap, who's likely nothing more than Cassel anyway, because elite QB's aren't available via FA, and not only is the likelihood of winning a championship with him slim and none, you've delayed addressing the problem to begin with. Add another year or two to the 3-4 you were waiting for a Franchise QB to get it, and you're looking at this draft class getting only a couple of years to win it all, instead of having a dynasty where you are a factor every year.

All because instead of drafting and developing a QB, like Clark supposedly does, we've avoided it for 27 fucking years.

Of COURSE people are looking to the future, because we've all seen glimpses of the talent on this team and can visualize that talent being part of something special very soon. We just hope it doesn't go to waste, and there's no evidence to think it won't be wasted by shitty QB play, IMO.

3 wins in 10 playoff games in the 1990's.

You said the 90s chiefs fell flat because of the QB's. I was just pointing out that there were 5 pretty different QB's guiding those teams. They actually lost most of those games not because of the QB, although Krieg was really bad, but because of kicking.

Except the QB held them back.That was to me more a factor of marty on the sidelines than whoever was behind center at the time. He was the constant. His style of football, his decisions during the game. His quarterbacks were all more than good enough to win playoff games. He was not. That's not to say the two issues aren't inextricably tied - as we all know in 1993 it took a hall of fame QB to overcome his January incompetence - but the real issue was always him.


That's not to say I don't want our own Tom Brady on the sidelines here. If the choices are Trent Dilfer or Tom Brady, I'd rather have several superbowl appearances than 1, a legacy rather than an aberration. But you don't have to have Peyton Manning. He just makes it a whole hell of a lot easier and gives you a greater margin for error...

I will take that level of play every game from him.

The main problem I see with Chiefs fans is that they are content with just making the playoffs, not wanting what is necessary to win a super bowl. I agree with the above posts about this team looking like the 90s Chiefs teams, and we all know how the playoffs went for them.

Why do people get upset that people are pointing out Cassel's flaws? I, for one, don't want to see this rookie class (and probably our only chance to win a SB in the near future) wasted when they are in their prime because of mediocre QB play, just like the 90s.

This is taking a blunt instrument to a more nuanced problem. While I understand what you're saying about Ruthlessberger, you have to consider where he was in his career and his relative upside. Thus, it's disingenuous to make this contention, relative to other QBs.

Put it this way, most would be thrilled to have a young ass game manager at this point, if he had the potential to develop into more than that.

not my point whatsoever...

my point was

regardless of what ceiling Matt Cassel has

teams have won Super Bowls...even recently...without great QB play

the Bears got to a Super Bowl with Rex Grossman at QB

while I do agree that QB is definitely a position that is more important than any other in sports...

it doesn't necessarily mean a team can't win a Super Bowl if a few things go their way...

Right now we have a top tier defense and THE top tier running game...

who's to say what our ceiling is this year?

I agree with not putting limitations on any team unnecessarily, but the problem is that we have to try to think about the most logical direction for the long term, which explains why I hate Cassel as a player.

Fair enough, but that has nothing to do with this year or, more specifically, yesterday's performance.

Great team performance and outstanding coaching. Probably should have put coaching first, actually.

Ok. I don't disagree with that. All I'm saying is that when you have shortcomings in the most important areas, it doesn't leave much room for error. Can it be done? Sure, I suppose.

It does, however, seem like we've seen this script before. Perhaps having a more agressive HC will change the ending? No clue...

This is the amazing talent I've always believed was there within Cassel & Bowe as QB & WR!

Put your hard-on back in your pants. Both QBs you mention developed in to BIG game quarterbacks. Cassel is more Trent Dilfer at this point than anything else except he's fat contract. Maybe I'm going out on a limb but the Chiefs "D" ain't the RayRay led Ravens this year.

Sure.

And still waiting.

You're really unbelievable at times. I am sure you are just mad because his passes took away carries that Charles could have had.

Only person on 610 worth listening to is the scabrous Nick Wright. All the others are trash. Fescoe literally knows NOTHING about football. It's amazing listening to him. Shariff doesn't know much about sports so he sticks to stories dealing with things around sport and not the sport itself.

i agree, mostly. i think fescoe is at least entertaining though. shariff needs to be run out of town. let him go back to his big market he came from. last time i listened to his show, he was yammering on about how arrowhead was ranked so low on a list of toughest places to play. he was trying to rile up the kc natives, who have accepted the fact that arrowhead isn't what it was 6 years ago or so. at that point i realized he had no idea what being from kc is all about. then he started in with the favre talk, and this was when the royals were playing their best baseball of the summer. sure, the royals suck, and aren't much fun to talk about, but when they are winning or on a hot streak, the fans in this town care more about the royals then they do about whether or not favre will be back. i find Wright to be highly entertaining though, and he is a far better option then golf/bbq talk on BTL.

He looked competent. That's about as far as I'm willing to go with it.

This sums it up. Do I think Cassel had a better game? Yes. He did have some good throws and he appeared to do a better job of getting rid of the ball instead of hanging on for a sack. Still, too many balls were overthrown, underthrown, or just plainly poorly thrown. And there was more than one play where he made the wrong read and tried to force the ball to a receiver that was covered when there were open receivers to throw to. And I wasn't the only one seeing this. Everybody around our group in the stands was seeing the same thing. I'm not trying to be a hater. I'm just trying to be objective here. That 112 QB rating is misleading. The playmakers around him definately elevated his stats. Cassel had an improved game, yes, and props to him for that. But, he has alot of room for improvement. Whether or not Weis can extract much more out of him is a question that has yet to be answered. I'm thrilled that we're 3-0, and I sincerely beleive that this team is headed in the right direction. But our play at QB has to improve either through an improved Matt Cassel or a change at QB before we have a real good chance at making a run deep into the playoffs. Just my .02.

This is a pretty good point here.

The Chiefs haven't played with confidence in roughly 7 years. Starting off 3-0, with a group of rookies who are growing up each week, and a pack of veterans who see the fruits of their hard work paying off can only mean good things moving forward.

I don't know what the ceiling is for this year's team. What I do know is teams that start getting confidence and gelling at the right time can make some noise.

Yes, developed.

However, they weren't anything more than game-managers at the time they won their first.

I'm not saying Cassel could win a Super Bowl, but the notion that just about every QB who win SB's are franchise guys is completely off.
