My kind of QB. One tough Hombre

All doubts seemed to disappear Wednesday that Matt Cassel would start at quarterback Sunday when they open their regular season against Buffalo at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs returned to practice after a day off and Cassel was a full participant.

“No doubt in my mind,” Cassel said when asked if he would play. “I feel good. I feel like I’m ready to go.

“Come you-know-what or high water, I’m going to be out there.”

Cassel left in the second quarter of last week’s preseason game in Green Bay with a rib injury. The Chiefs were concerned that Cassel wouldn’t be able to play against the Bills.

In that case, Tyler Palko would be the starting quarterback. Palko has never started an NFL game and played in only two.

Cassel indicated he might not be at full strength Sunday but said that wouldn’t prevent him from doing his job.

“If you play this game long enough, there’s going to be bumps and bruises,” Cassel said. “If you feel good on Mondays after a game, then you probably didn’t play much on Sunday. You know when you play this game, you’re not always going to feel your best.”

Brown makes Bills roster

Colin Brown of Braymer, Mo., and the University of Missouri, is one of Buffalo’s reserves at guard and center. The Chiefs drafted Brown in 2009 in the fifth round but cut him last year at the end of training camp.

Bills coach Chan Gailey was the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator during training camp of Brown’s rookie year.

“He’s a different guy than what we had that first training camp he had back in Kansas City,” Gailey said. “He’s a lot more mature, a lot more confident. He was trying to feel his way through during the short time I was there with him. He’s moving better now. He seems to have added a step of quickness.”

Well is it time to meltdown because he is playing and not Palko or Stanzi?

You can be critical of his play but can't deny his toughness.
In that respect he has a lot of DeBerg in him who was one of my favorite all time Chiefs.

Tough or not....it wouldn't be any stretch of the imagination to believe that Stanzi could potentially step in (if given a chance) and create a QB controversy. In addition to maybe being "tough".........Cassel isn't stupid.

Cassel seems to thrive on doubters. Everyone was worried about him last year against the Rams but he made a point to scramble a couple times just to make the statement he wasn't backing down. I think he goes into this game with something to prove, and that's a good thing.

i have no doubt that he will play if it's physically possible.

Cassel is insecure and he will be afraid he might end up losing his starting job if he ever gives somebody else a chance to start. Plays right into the reason Pioli doesn't want any real competition for him either.

meanwhile Pioli has known Cassel for a long time and as yet to bring any real competition to KC since Cassel came over. Why would he take that chance for no reason?

Cassel has lost virtually every QB competition since high school ... has to lead to doubt.

Cassel plays with very little confidence on the field. So little that it effects his ability to play up to his potential.

This maybe why he wants to play just so the other QBs don't give a better showing that they should start instead of him. Could be his biggest motivator yet for him to perform like he should.

Maybe this will help him get rid of the ball quicker and take less sacks too?

I'm really not sure of what the hand-wringing is about in some of the Cassel threads. Yes the O line is shaky, but with the receivers and RBs we have, even a rookie could succeed. Example: Run-4 yds, Dump pass-3 yds, Run-6 yds, Pass-10 yds. If you follow where I'm going, you don't need an MVP, just a guy who can keep from throwing INTs. This is how our offense is now built. We have the skill players to take the pressure off the QB and O line.

Don't fall into this thinking Tat. If anyone thinks that any QB on this roster is going to start over Cassel, they need to have their head examined.
People can talk shit all they want.
Cry, kick, and scream, but at the end of the day this is Cassel's team, like it or not.
If Gaither can shore up the RT spot, and Baldwin can play up to expectations, the same people bitching, and crying will be washing his bawls.

Playing Madden, watching the Dog Whisperer, and Fantasy Football have given these fans the knowledge of running an NFL franchise, evaluating talent, and looking into the mind of a QB. That TV game tape helps too ;)
