QB MATT CASSEL NAMED AFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH

By PR Staff

Cassel is just the second Chiefs quarterback to ever win the honor

The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Thursday that QB Matt Cassel has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November.

Cassel is just the second Chiefs quarterback to ever win the honor, joining QB Steve DeBerg who did it in September of 90. Cassel is the first Chiefs player to be named AFC Player of the Month since RB Larry Johnson in December/January of the 2005 season.

Cassel (6-4, 230) completed 90 of 144 passes (62.5%) for 1,111 yards with 12 TDs and only one INT for a 111.2 passer rating in November. His 12 TD passes led the league during the month, while his passer rating ranked third in the NFL over that span. He has recorded three straight games with a 100.0+ rating and produced a pair of games with four TD passes in November. Cassel threw for a career-high 469 yards at Denver (12/5). He currently leads the NFL with a 6.81 TD percentage (min. 250 attempts) on the season. Cassel also has a +18 touchdown-to-interception differential, the second-best mark in the NFL.

Cassel's November numbers: 90 of 144 (62.5%) for 1,111 yards with 12 TDs and only 1 INT (111.2 rating). 12 TDs were an NFL high.

This surely means that he is as good as Manning, Rivers, and Brees.

Also, this means that he is a lock for the HOF when he finishes up his career.

Face it guys, he is having a good year. The Chiefs will pay the retention bonus in the offseason, and he IS the quarterback here now.

When you watch the highlights you see something we haven't seen a lot of this season: Casshole hitting his WR's in stride. Instead of Bowe having to stop and jump, or stop and come back, he's able to keep running and make YAC.

For whatever reason he looks like he's finally comfortable with Bowe...

For whatever reason he looks like he's finally comfortable with Bowe...Bowe always jumping to make a circus catch was his problem, and lack of concentration. Now that's he staying on the ground, he's a load when the ball hits his hands.

not every pass is gonna be perfect, it's up to the WR to adjust to an errant throw.

I also think they've been putting in the time, and it's paying off.

Even the most ardent homer has to admit that it's amusing that 1/3 of Cassel's TD production and nearly 1/2 his yards for this awesome month came in garbage time against the Denver Broncos.

Kind of puts a damper on the whole thing.

His improved play is deeper than just good stats. He has been consistently accurate, has gone through his reads, is staying in the pocket and making throws (except when he takes off at the appropriate times) ... hell, he's even making the right audibles. He's been doing things that he didn't do well, or couldn't do consistently, in the past.

All of that is conducive to continued success. Keep it up, Matty. I am cautiously optimistic, but reserve the right to flame his ass if he shits the bed down the stretch. :)

This is pretty pathetic to read half of the posts on here saying that this award is jack squat and that he doesn't deserve it. Be happy for the guy. There's obviously a new chemistry developing (note the -ing) and if it continues then this serves as a confidence builder which is something everyone can use every once in a while.

Let him have his cake and eat it, too. It's not like we've got anything to lose in this especially with Denver and SD coming up. We need all the confidence we can get, and this only lends respect from the rest of the team. Comradery shouldn't be underestimated at this point. And no, I'm not a huge proponent of Cassel, but we can't deny the fact that he's shown up to play as of late. Who's to say he can't do more?

While this team IS getting better, and Cassel is getting better, I think we're all in for a rude awakening next year when we have to play a schedule that's 100x harder than the one this year. (If we win our division this year).

Green Bay
Chicago
Minnesota
New England
Indianapolis
Baltimore
New York Jets
San Diego (x2)

BUT, that's next year. I think the Chiefs this season have done a good job of proving their no longer at the bottom of the league anymore. Their young stars are starting to shine. We should be able to build on this and continue to get better and hopefully become an AFC powerhouse for the next 5-7 years or perhaps longer. I like what Haley is doing. I think he's a good coach, learning on the job. I can't remember the last time a HC has had an approval rating this high since...well Marty I guess. At times DV had a high approval rating when our offense was putting oup 30+ ppg, but we also couldn't stop anyone. Romeo/Weis/Haley have this team gelling before our eyes. What the Chiefs have proved this season is that they can beat the bad teams now.

I still think their a mediocre team at best. But you have to crawl before you can walk, and walk before you can run. This team is heading in the right direction. You can't find too many people in KC that doesn't like what Haley is doing with this team.

Congratulations to Matt! I was trying to keep on top of who might win this award for the AFC. I figure it would have been Bowe with Cassel getting an outside look. I suppose the one delivering the passes is more important in the NFL's view.

Anyways, great stuff. Now do it again.

That NFC North has the look of a paper tiger to me.

Chicago isn't as good as their record, Minn is a mess and will rebuild next year, Detroit will improve but the defense is still bad and who knows what will come of Stafford's shoulder?

The Packers are the power of that division and even still, they can be beaten by a team that plays smart football.

If the Chiefs continue to improve incrimentally, they'll be okay against that schedule next year. It won't be as easy as this one, but it won't be a massacre either.

He deserves it for his performance in the last 2 games. Like I've said before, let's hope it's a sign of true progress and not a mirage against some of the shittiest D's in the league.

Keep it real, people. Be objective. The progress is there, but I don't think it's time to crown him quite yet like a couple of dumbasses already have.

[quote=CoMoChief;7217805]While this team IS getting better, and Cassel is getting better, I think we're all in for a rude awakening next year when we have to play a schedule that's 100x harder than the one this year. (If we win our division this year).

Green Bay
Chicago
Minnesota
New England
Indianapolis
Baltimore
New York Jets
San Diego (x2)

Why is Sandy Eggo on this list? We get to play them x2 even if we go 0-16.

Well I'm just sayin....that just adds to the list of potential tough teams we would have to play next year.

It doesn't really matter what our schedule is since most of the schedule will be the same for every single AFC W team...

We just have to do better than all the other AFC W teams.

Still not on board. But he has been playing great.

Only him playing well in the playoffs will change my opinion. Or a great game in sd with the diviison on the line. We are paying him like a franchise qb, I want see it when it matters.

Still he is playing well beyond my expectations of him this season.

Let me get this straight. He is playing better than you expected him to, but you just cant "get on board" with that?

You know it takes a team to get in the playoffs. It also takes a team to win in the playoffs. Just like it takes a team for him to play well in November like he has.

You guys are soooo invested in your pissing and moaning about him you have fogotten to make any sense. Your credibility would be better if you had just kept your mouth shut in this instance.

Would it help if I told you that you have already been proven wrong and no matter what happens in the future with Cassel wont change that? The moaners have been cracking all month on him while he carved out the AFC player of the month for himself. That makes you wrong. Nothing that happens next month with make you right.

And he if goes into a four game slump costs us four losses with 6ints then what? Sorry it seems unlike you I am not a bandwagon jumper. He needs to play at this level for awhile and against great teams for it to be norm and not the exception.

And cassel can do great and the team still lose. That would not be on him but someone else. Seems you are one of the few that take fan to fanatical. No one blamed trent when the d was bad. Still does not take away from the facts. Cassel has played the past few weeks out of his mind. Though against some bad teams. Needs to do it against good teams or in the playoffs to counter his stigma of the 2009 season.

Or like you ride the cassel train from the last four games.

What bandwagon am I on? You dont know squirt. You just throw it out there like you know my position. Thats a knee jerk reaction. Which in this case like many cases makes you look foolish.

If he has four bad games then he has 4 bad games. My opinion will be the same as it is now. It still hasn't changed. I am in the "let the guy develop" camp. Have been since the beginning. Not pissing and whining with each mistake or glorifying every good play. I thought he was a victim of circumstance last season with the coaching changes and the O line play. I was right about that. I thought that if he started to regain confidence in the O line he may start to look like the QB we saw in NE. Looks like I might be right about that. But we shall see.

As for your post I was simply pointing out how hypocritical it was. How you say he's playing better that you expect but you still cant give the guy a fucking break. Nothing you said in your response has clarified that. So you're still coming off foolish. IMO

I have been pretty harsh on Cassel and I think we all had good reason. He was playing with terrible pocket prescense, his accuracy beyond 15 yards was pathetic, he stared down his WR's etc........

While he has played some soft defenses this month anyone who has watched him has to admit that everything about his game has improved from game to game this month. Now before this month I don't think so but this month he seems to really be finding a groove and if playing these cream puff defenses can get him enough rapport, timing and confidence to compete with the bigger dogs then I think we will all be happy but until we see it happen some of us are going to hold off on the Cassel parade.

Just like most of us didn't trash Cassel right from the minute he was acquired but after terrible performance after terrible performance ( What really got most of us was the end of last season how his performance seemed to get worse as our rushing game and the offense around him seemed to improve ), it is going to take a little time with consistency of his current performance for us to buy into anything.

He played like a QB with a bad line and little NFL experience. He played just like he should have ben playing. The question was, would he improve? I was willing to wait and see. While many had taken a few games and evaluated him to the point where there was no upside, he was maxed out and would never amount to anything.

My position was that those people didn';t know shit about what tghey were looking at. I was right about that. Because now, those people are sitting in my position. A wait and see position. Maybe he's not maxed out, maybe he is. One thing is for sure, the know it alls have STFU.

A few games? I think a season and a half for a QB his age regardless of playing experience can usually be a good judge of where he was heading.

But it also did not explain why he was playing so bad towards the end of last season and this season as the offense improved around him. I mean come on he was throwing passes in the dirt or over the heads on screens and players 5 yards away from him. To most of us that is something a rookie can usually do and accuracy is rarely learned this far into ones career as a QB.

But I think any red blooded Chiefs fan is hoping we were all wrong and that this is the new and improved Cassel that we can depend on from now on but it is a little early for any of us to judge as of yet. But if anything it has got quite a few of us second guessing our original opinions and I for one would be ecstatic to have been such an idiot about him.

It all comes down to his performance, under pressure. Basically his poise.
He has looked a 1000 times more confident.
I stated that he was shell shocked from all the failed protections last season, and questioned whether he would ever recover from it. It looks as though he is recovering, and his poise is returning. I still want to see how he responds when someone brings serious consistent pressure on him, but at this point, I honestly think he's going to keep improving, but that's just my opinion. Having not gotten on the filed at all in college, he basically has as much on field experience as a college QB in his senior season. I definitely think he can continue to improve, and man i hope I'm right.

Matt Ryan wasn't so hot last year either. His second year starting. Lots of QB's have ebb's and flows to their career if they play long enough.

The only accolade he has received is player of the month. If you want to hold off on your praise of him go right ahead. Not sure what other accolades you're talking about.

He has played well all season long, the people like you that claim he has only had 2 good games in a row are badly mistaken. He has been fairly consistent all season. Of course there have been ups and downs, like any player will have but if you draw a line through all of the dots you will see that the line is pointing up and has been from game 1.

But you feel free to hold off on giving him praise, I'm sure he will be all broken up to hear that some douche on the internet wants to see more out of him this season.

Can we agree that Cassels improvement is not only on him? But the O line is better and the players around him are playing better as well. Imagine if Bowe drops half those TD passes this year. Many would blame Cassel for the loss in those intances. I dont. I look at the whole picture.

I have looked at the whole picture all along. Not just one guy to blame it on. Bt doing that, I havent been as critical on Cassel. But I definately have seen the things he needs to improve on. Trying too hard being his biggest problem.

I think there is only a few fans on here that are like that and most of us know who they are.

I think Cassel's improvement of the last month is mostly on him as our offense has already improved going back to the end of last season and into this year. Well I think we can throw Bowe into the mix as well :)

I have looked at the whole picture as well and going by history some of the things he needed to improve on such as accuracy on short passes and going thru his reads coupled with the length of time he had as a starter had many of us more than worried and more like looking for a next QB by watching Saturday games. I don't think that was unfair of us by how he was playing but if people are not pleased with how he has played these last few games then they are just hating to be stubborn on their already dug out opinions.

His improved play is deeper than just good stats. He has been consistently accurate, has gone through his reads, is staying in the pocket and making throws (except when he takes off at the appropriate times) ... hell, he's even making the right audibles. He's been doing things that he didn't do well, or couldn't do consistently, in the past.

All of that is conducive to continued success. Keep it up, Matty. I am cautiously optimistic, but reserve the right to flame his ass if he shits the bed down the stretch. :)

Feels good, doesn't it, that for the first time in decades the Chiefs might have a coaching staff that can DEVELOP a QB.

12-02-2010, 04:17 PM
Well deserved (though IMO Bowe deserved it more; not taking anything from Cassel: Bowe was just that freaking good).

Maybe Tucker has quietly been a good enough 2 to take some pressure off Bowe?

Congrats on the QB and team confidence builder. He has played the last couple games like a true franchise QB. Funny how Pioli can go from foolish move to genious in a month, hope he can do the same for Tyson Jackson.

That would be super awesome making my crow quite delicious.

Matt Cassel named AFC Offensive Player of the Month; 1st #Chiefs QB since Steve Deberg in Sept. 1990 to win the honor.

QB MATT CASSEL NAMED AFC OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE MONTH

By PR Staff

Cassel is just the second Chiefs quarterback to ever win the honor

The National Football League informed the Chiefs on Thursday that QB Matt Cassel has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for November.

Cassel is just the second Chiefs quarterback to ever win the honor, joining QB Steve DeBerg who did it in September of 90. Cassel is the first Chiefs player to be named AFC Player of the Month since RB Larry Johnson in December/January of the 2005 season.

Cassel (6-4, 230) completed 90 of 144 passes (62.5%) for 1,111 yards with 12 TDs and only one INT for a 111.2 passer rating in November. His 12 TD passes led the league during the month, while his passer rating ranked third in the NFL over that span. He has recorded three straight games with a 100.0+ rating and produced a pair of games with four TD passes in November. Cassel threw for a career-high 469 yards at Denver (12/5). He currently leads the NFL with a 6.81 TD percentage (min. 250 attempts) on the season. Cassel also has a +18 touchdown-to-interception differential, the second-best mark in the NFL.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cassel's November numbers: 90 of 144 (62.5%) for 1,111 yards with 12 TDs and only 1 INT (111.2 rating). 12 TDs were an NFL high.

Great job, Matt! Keep it up!

While this team IS getting better, and Cassel is getting better, I think we're all in for a rude awakening next year when we have to play a schedule that's 100x harder than the one this year. (If we win our division this year).

Green Bay
Chicago
Minnesota
New England
Indianapolis
Baltimore
New York Jets
San Diego (x2)
If we make as much progress next year as we did this year, maybe THOSE teams should worry about us having them on our schedule.

He has played well all season long, the people like you that claim he has only had 2 good games in a row are badly mistaken.

This is unequivocally false.

He did not "play well" against San Diego or Cleveland. He had issues with both Houston and Indy, was directly responsible for 10 points against Denver and threw a back-breaking interception against Oakland.

That said, his level of play has been excellent the past two weeks and it's possible that he's turned a corner.

But to state that he's played "well" all year is a fallacy.

Yeah, He's looked really rough for a good part of the season. the only thing he was really doing right at times, was not turning the ball over. He's looking like a field Fn General right now tho.

Didn't you see the whole conversation in the other thread? Apparently that wasn't garbage time.
It was in fact garbage time, almost a practice session against a prevent defense.

But, if that is what it took to get Cassel what he needed, to make the improvements he has exhibited the last two games, it was more than worth it.

We can only hope it continues, and if it does the future is brighter for this team than we could have imagined only 3 weeks ago.

Saul Good
12-02-2010, 06:02 PM
I hope you are right as well because we will find out how he can do under pressure in 2 weeks. Providing we win this week next week will see just how clutch he can be and if our team as a whole is ready to take the division crown.

I've heard a lot of people say similar things, and it doesn't make sense (not to pick on you). After the Denver loss, the Chiefs had a 1 game lead over the red-hot Chargers. It's hard to figure that the Chargers are going to lose more than 1 game the rest of the year, so each game since the Broncos game has been critical. He's been at his best in the two games since then.

You convieniently left out the fact that I said he has had ups and downs like any player...

Notice that I didn't say IN EVERY SINGLE GAME....I said all season, and I went on to elaborate but you didn't quote that part.

Besides that "playing well" is subjective so you can't say it is "unequivocal" or a "fallacy" since those terms are not applicable to a subjective word. Perhaps you should look up the words you use (like fallacy) beofre you start spewing them out to try and sound smarter than you are.

Good for Matt! Glad to see his recent play get some recognition.

Still, I think it's interesting that all of the "I told you so" folks are just as insufferable when they're right as all the "haters" supposedly are.

As a Cassel critic, I am incredibly happy with his performance and would like nothing more than to see him continue to improve and play well. I think there are very few anti-Cassel posters who wouldn't agree with that.

OK. This thread is full of posts by "Homers" and "Haters." I'd say both extremes are inappropriate. Things are happening in shades of grey and Cassel is still a work in progress. We can all unite in the hope that the work will pan out someday soon and solve our QB problem while saving us from having to spend a high draft choice on a one.

The only accolade he has received is player of the month. If you want to hold off on your praise of him go right ahead. Not sure what other accolades you're talking about.

He has played well all season long, the people like you that claim he has only had 2 good games in a row are badly mistaken. He has been fairly consistent all season. Of course there have been ups and downs, like any player will have but if you draw a line through all of the dots you will see that the line is pointing up and has been from game 1.

But you feel free to hold off on giving him praise, I'm sure he will be all broken up to hear that some douche on the internet wants to see more out of him this season.

I am talking about the people on here that seem to think he has finally become a franchise QB. I am hopeful that happens but he has 5 games left and one big game at San Diego for the division to prove me and the other "haters" wrong.

While I agree that extremes are inappropriate and wrong usually, I don't see many people taking the extreme homer position on Matt Castle (he is the best ever....he is a GREAT QB....he is a future HoF'er...etc..)

Only on Chiefs Planet is saying the guy has had a good season and giving him props for this award being a "homer."

Well, I would love to sit here and say I believe we can win that game 100% in SD. I don't know what the odds will be, but they have to be fairly low. There is a decent chance that Matty even has a bad game...(away game, playoff atmosphere, great defense....season on the line etc...)...

So if you are going to use this one game (@SD) to judge him....if you are going to make 'making the playoffs' this season a criteria for you to be able to get behind Cassel I personally think the odds are fairly slim that you will. Maybe 25-33%? Not ridiculously slim, but something like 2 or 3 to 1.

Anyhow, I have already seen enough (for me) to want to get behind Cassel and want him as our QB for now and next season. I think that if playoffs are your 'deciding factor' that might have to wait until next December or the December following. Especially if you are talking about getting into the playoffs with a chance to win.

Like it or not our team is still a season or two away from this.

His play other than the last two games has been for the most part below the standard I have for a starting QB. If you think he has been fine before the last two games, you have a much different standard than I do.

Pawnmower I will be honest with you, I obviously want to win every game left but to be honest I would rather see Cassel keep improving regardless of the outcome. If he goes out this week or next week or the rest of the season and plays like he has been and even if we lose I will be disappointed but at least I will feel better going into next season. If he comes out and shits the bed and plays like he has earlier in the season then we are fucked.

Week 7 http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2010102403/2010/REG7/jaguars@chiefs JAGS

I'm gonna only point out those three games just to prove you wrong 100%. Those are games where almost anyone could agree he played 'well.' In my opnion there are more games in which he played well, but maybe my 'well' is different from yours. (or 'fine' or whatever word you want to use)

I think the problem might be with your definition of the word 'well.' In any case you are incorrect, Matty played some games 'well' long before two weeks ago.

I have been saying all along that you can spot the dumbasses simply by looking at who says "let's see him do it in San Diego". A season is not one game. A guy isn't good or bad or great or awful based on 1 game. Even Barry Sanders had games where he got his shit pushed in. Doesn't mean he wasn't one of the best of all time.

This is why that is happening. Because it's going to be incredibly difficult for cassel, or any QB, to go on the road to SD and play at a really high level against their defense at home. So the Cassel haters know this, and they will say "let him do it against San Diego" knowing that it will be incredibly difficult to do. So when he doesn't have some great game, they will show up and say "see, he didn't do it. he sucks".

If he does do it, they will simply revert back to "well that's good, but he need to do that week in and week out now".

I agree with the 1st part of what you said 100% (everything before the underline)

It is a matter of opinion, but for the most part I don't think Cassel has shit the bed this season....I know it is just my opinion but in our losses I don't think Cassel was the main reason for the L's. Could he have played better, of course. Main reason for the loss in all 4 games? No. Not hardly. So I have to suspect that if we lose in SD he won't be the main reason for the L. Even if he is, a couple of bad games is pretty standard for any QB every season....

To claim at this point in the season that 1) if we do not make the playoffs or 2) if Cassel shits the bed in SD that 'Cassel sucks' or that he hasn't progressed massively is still wrong, IMO.

This won't just be the biggest game in our season. For many of the Chiefs it will be the biggest NFL game of their careers thus far. For Matty it will be one of (if not THE) biggest game of his life.

...the bipolarism of it all is astounding & annoying...all offseason all we heard is how much we were gonna suck, how Cassel sucked, how he was NEVER EVER going to be a franchise, or a"legit" or "real" QB.

He was constantly compared to other "franchise" QBs. Held to that standard mainly based on contract (stupid), expected to perform at their level in his second year and third OC, even though he'd ALREADY been proclaimed a bust.


Five, six wins tops, set the franchise back, yadyadayada ad nausem. Run defense starts strong, and ever since has pretty much been given the benefit of the doubt, to the ridiculous example Cassel lost at Houston and Denver even though those two games combined for eight CONSECUTIVE TD's. Lost @ Oakland and Indy, even though he made the throws that were needed for victory, yet the wr gets a pass for dropping the game winning ball.

plays well enough to lead the division, yet his accomplishments aren't due to him..but others. garbage time, bad teams blahblahblah. Same QB proclaimed a bust, has good play marginalized by nit picking. well, if he can do it in THIS game or same busted QB has only done "it" for two games, and if that fake QB can win a playoff game, THEN Il'll believe in him...rest of team, free pass...or at least the benefit of the doubt to improve, yet he doesn't have the same freedom. he succeeds, it's not REAL..it might just be a fluke...gotta wait to see if the invalid QB can do it week in and week out agaisnt better teams, regardless that other QB's don't and never will. good QB's and good teams get beat by mediocre and subpar teams every season.

It's insane...and it's pretty damn funny watching fans tear down their own player for being awarded and recognized...lke a rival fan would.

"Hope"... the most overused strawman in these conversations.. well, I hope i'm wrong..I hope he succeeds.....BS. look the word up..things saidi about Cassel don't resemble hope at all...you can't desire something while trying to destroy it anyway you can, then sit around and wait for it to be something great....and then be pissed when it's not.

I personally think he's gonna continue to make people eat their words. Mainly because of skills, dedication, perserverance, heart, desire and competitiveness...

I'm glad that Cassel played well enough to get this distinction, and over the past two weeks, he has played well enough to earn it, but the bullshit of this is the conflation that people who have said the same thing for almost two years are somehow bipolar.

Let's put it this way: Show me you're a franchise QB, Matt, don't tell me about your work ethic and your heart, and all that other bullshit that everyone who loved high school football had. Show us your talent.

For the last two weeks, he's done a decent job of showing that. But there are a number of horrible, horrible QBs who have had great months, or even good years. The standard of proof is so low around here it's mind boggling. Yes, we get it, your last boyfriend was a crackhead who beat you and raped your kittens. It doesn't mean the alocholic with bacne is Prince Charming.

Bull crap.

We've had MVP talk (of the league!).

We've had plenty of people saying all the doubters were wrong and they were right. How can that statement be made unless they consider that Cassel has arrived? Obviously the jury is still out.

I would say 'bull crap' to you sir. No one is saying he is a "big time QB" yet. You can point out an exception or two, but that doesn't make the rule.

You can find a couple people who will say anything, but that doesn't mean they represent the majority. The VAST majority of Chiefs Fans or NFL Fans would NOT proclaim Matty a "Big Time" QB just yet.

This is false logic. He might not come through in this game. That doesn't mean he isn't 'the guy' necessarily.

What you say is true. But eventually he has to consistently play well against the best teams to be 'the guy'. Until he does this, he isn't 'the guy' yet.

My analysis of the evidence? The guy has played 2.5 solid games against a prevent defense (on one of the worst D's in the NFL) and two of the worst defenses in the NFL period, and not crowning his ass means I'm analyzing the evidence incorrectly?

Yes, I get that you were wrong. I do not believe I claimed he would be 'good.' Certainly I didn't think he would play even this well....so I can't claim I knew this would happen.

So I understand you still do not think he can be a good QB. Your 'evidence' and your 'proof' somehow tells you this.

That is your opinion and I can't argue with it. From what I have seen in this 2nd season of Matty as a Chief is that I think he can be a good QB. I think he has what it takes to lead the team to the playoffs in the next year or two.

If he can take his game up a notch by consistently increasing his accuracy just a little (even 2-3 percent, say to 63%, and do better on 3rd downs) I believe he can be a pro-bowl QB, which we will want to hang onto for years.

I appreciate your use of a proper noun. And I imagine that many will continue to repeat it because he'd been mediocre-average for the vast majority of the year.

Denver provided the felix culpa. 7 on 7 in a "real" game seems to have provided the confidence that Cassel needed. What this suggests, and where many of his critics will be proven wrong if this trend continues, is that he had the necessary skill set to be a high-quality QB, not simply a game manager.

Please explain my intellectual dishonesty. It is a common statement that Cassel has played exceptionally well the last 2.5 games. No one disagrees with this assessment. Many believe that a 2.5 game sample is very small and still honestly hold skepticism. TheGuardian sought to expand the time period of Matt Cassel's excellence by selectively quoting one state, namely his TD to INT ratio. In reply to TheGuardian, I offered some other stats that that showed that Matt Cassel's entire season may not be as stellar as TheGuardian presented.

If you put more stock in advanced statistics, Cassel ranks 11th in DYAR and 12th in DVOA.

Admittedly, this is much better than many thought possible from him, but this shows that he's far from a franchise QB.

DVOA is probably the more important statistic. Top 5, in this order:
Brady
Rivers
Roethlisberger
Rodgers
Orton

P. Manning is 11th. Obviously, this shows that stats must be coupled with common sense.

While I agree that extremes are inappropriate and wrong usually, I don't see many people taking the extreme homer position on Matt Castle (he is the best ever....he is a GREAT QB....he is a future HoF'er...etc..)

Only on Chiefs Planet is saying the guy has had a good season and giving him props for this award being a "homer."

I don't disagree. I admit the "haters" have acted more extreme. But there are a few here who have fallen in love with Cassel now. And I caution against that until we see more consistency in his performance.

No it has only been two weeks. "Anyone who knows anything about football can see that"


LOLLLOL
I dont think anyone is saying it is ONLY 2 weeks.

BUT

Before the last two weeks, he didnt show poise under pressure, accuracy, ability to go through his reads consistently, ability to slide in the pocket to avoid pressure, ability to throw past 10 yards with ANY accuracy...etc.

"fix the quarterback"

In the video someone posted from the Seattle game, Haley said "kids becoming a quarterback" indicating that even the head coach didnt think he was one till fairly recently.

I could go on and on...

I have been saying all along that you can spot the dumbasses simply by looking at who says "let's see him do it in San Diego". A season is not one game. A guy isn't good or bad or great or awful based on 1 game.

I hate these ****tards.
Then you can surely put me in the group of "fucktards" because I think that game will be absolutely HUGE in how I gauge how much progress he has made.

The thing with that game is that it will likely show us in great detail what we will get from the guy once his level of play needs to raise for us to be a team that is more than a one and done in THE PLAYOFFS...you know, what all this is about? That is the type of game Cassel needs to step up in and show that he has that in him if we are to have a good chance at being the team we have all been waiting soooo long for.

In the playoffs, you dont see teams like the 2010 Arizona Cardinals...you have to play on the road against hot teams with good defenses. Once you are on that platform, you need to show you are deserving of being there and then and only then are you considered a "contender"

It is entirely possible for Cassel to fulfill what many of us want to see in a game that we ultimately lose as well.

When we need him to make a few plays in that game, he needs to step up.

Pure and simple.

Your intellectual dishonesty in this thread was trying to use the exception to prove the general rule wrong......and then even after having it explained to you...you 'fake' like you don't get it. Like finding 3 people who claim gravity doesn't exist would somehow 'prove' it. You damn well KNOW the consensus, the VAST consensus is not that Matty is a 'big time' QB yet you said "BULL CRAP!!" to me when I tried to point this out. That is dishonest. Then, you cherry picked a bunch of stats for some reason...and they all happened to be stats which are not in favor of Cassel being a good QB. Why? I have no idea...But it is dishonest nonetheless.

I'm not sure what youre referring to about guardian bringing up TD:INT ratio, I will have to go back and look. But yes, you are correct if someone were to say Matt Cassel is the Bestest QB evar and here is why: blah blah......And then only mention the good stats....That is dishonest.

Believe me I wouldn't hesitate to call anyone out on 'forgetting' or not mentioning stats when it is convienient. Or worse yet, saying stats do not matter in X case but do in Y case...

I think our misunderstanding comes from the fact that you replied to a comment I was making to someone else (initially). If you go all the way back to where you said "BULL CRAP!" to what I was saying, and then look at my quote you will see I was talking to someone else.

Boy it'd be tougher to cherry pick stats than you just did wouldn't it?

But fine, let's play.

Peyton Manning is 21st in yards per attempt
Sanchize is 23rd
Matt Ryan is 25th

His completion % over the last 8 games is 62.5%. Again, this isn't a 2.5 game thing. He's improved over the course of the season at a pretty steady curve.

You picked your cherries first (TD to INT stats). I was just showing you that there were other cherries that weren't so pretty.

He's played great the last 2.5 games.

He was very erratic before then, having some good games and some bad games. Even in his relatively clean stat games, he had some very bad throws at very bad times. Some of those bad throws hurt our chances of winning certain games.

He has made progress this season. I'm waiting to see more consistency over longer periods of time against some stronger competition before I get all gooey about him.

This is getting really old, but here goes:

Your intellectual dishonesty in this thread was trying to use the exception to prove the general rule wrong......and then even after having it explained to you...you 'fake' like you don't get it. Like finding 3 people who claim gravity doesn't exist would somehow 'prove' it. You damn well the consensus, the VAST consensus is not that Matty is a 'big time' QB yet you said "BULL CRAP!!" to me when I tried to point this out. That is dishonest. Then, you cherry picked a bunch of stats for some reason...and they all happened to be stats which are not in favor of Cassel being a good QB. Why? I have no idea...But it is dishonest nonetheless.

You're not sure what he's referring to when he actually quoted TheGuardian's post? Mmmkay.

Before the last two weeks, he didnt show poise under pressure, accuracy, ability to go through his reads consistently, ability to slide in the pocket to avoid pressure, ability to throw past 10 yards with ANY accuracy...etc.


I just do not agree with you here. I think we have seen flashes of these things in games as early as game 3. I can only speak for myself, but over the 1st 3 games I could already tell that he had much more poise under pressure than last season....Also I think he has had some decent throws of 10+ much farther back than 3 weeks ago. I really don't understand the need to claim that this all suddenly started 2.5 weeks ago.......Is it that hard for peopel to admit they were wrong?

You said "no one" was saying Cassel was great.

That brought out my "bull crap" because I take words very literally. "No one" means no one. There are several posters that have been posting the last few days that all the doubters were wrong about Cassel. When we caution that a few games against weak teams doesn't prove that he's great we get told we are wrong again. So how can the doubters be wrong unless Cassel's already developed into a great QB?

Comon, stevie, everybody has admitted that he has played well the last 2 games. People want him to succeed. Everyone is ready to get behind him. But to say he played well the whole season would be a lie.

Dude, he LITERALLY had NO poise under pressure last year and I was one of the first here to point out in the early games that he had taken some of the first hits while throwing the ball (even though the passes were well off the mark) that doesnt mean he had "poise"

Poise, to me anyway, is when you are under pressure and slide to utilize your blocking while keeping your eyes on your reads trying to find the open man and you find a way to deliver an accurate pass in that situation...giving your team a chance to negate the pass rush. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady thrive by doing this game in and game out.

Hopefully, Cassel CONTINUES to show this feature of his game that has IMO only truly surfaced these last 2 or 3 games.

Just watching him early in the season he would make 2-3 good throws a game and then stink it up the rest of the game. I don't know if you would call that a flash. For example one of the games you cited, Jacksonsville, he made a couple of TD's passes (the 2nd one was a miracle catch by Bowe who was wide the fuck open and Cassel about threw it out of bounds) but he only completed 13 passes for the whole game. I didn't walk away from that game thinking Cassel showed me anything.

That is why I thought you were being intellectually dishonest....I know it is hard to communicate through text, and in person we would not have these kinds of difficulties...But I was not being literal when I said no one...

As I said, you can find exceptions to everything...but they don't make the rule...

I apologize for not being clear, and will try to keep this in mind and be more literal.

Bullshit.

I have started AT LEAST 5 thread THIS YEAR praising Cassel.

Also, for the record, WINNING THE SUPERBOWL IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT
LOL ohhhhh I see so thats where the goalpost will be headed next?

I think part of this ongoing debate is due to some of us having different unrealistic expectations and others having the bar set so low that they think Cassel has a good game when he throws for 125 yards in a loss.

My objection to Cassel has always been that he won't develop into a big time QB. Therefore, I can't be wrong about him until he develops into a big time QB. You keep saying that he isn't there yet and no one is claiming that he has. It seems very inconsistent for you to want me to admit I am wrong, even when you agree that he hasn't arrived yet.

Well, if someone 'doubts' Cassel can be a GREAT QB, they can't be wrong yet, but might be some day.

If someone doubted that he could be a Good QB, they appear to be wrong.

If someone doubted that he could be an average QB they are wrong for sure.

IMO he has proven he has the tools to be a good QB......but "GReat?"

That is a huge leap...generally hardly anyone (I would say no one, but I don't want to start a huge argument) thinks he is a great QB already.

Talk about "Strawman".

:rolleyes:

If Matt Cassel didn't cost a 2nd round pick and $28 million dollars over the course of 32 games, I'm pretty sure that the expectations would be much lower.

I know those things don't matter to you because you live your life as a shrine to the Hunts and the Chiefs but they do matter to others.

I really don't understand your point....You say he won't be a 'big time' QB...Okay..I can't argue with that.

I don't know where you ever got that I want you to admit you are wrong, the only thing I ever said was 'no one thinks he is a big time QB yet' and you took me EXTREMELY literally....when what I meant by no one was 'practically no one'...

I don't want you to be wrong...I think you are misunderstanding me somehow...My main argument about the word 'big time' was with someone else.
