Chiefs fans are fed up with quarterback Matt Cassel.
</td></tr> <tr> <td colspan="3">
Listen to the radio, peruse the internet or eavesdrop in the Arrowhead parking lot. It’s the same thing everywhere now. Cassel has worn out his welcome in Kansas City and it’s not an exaggeration to say 90 percent of fans have turned on him.

It wasn’t always this way, of course. Last season, right after he threw a 75-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=5740051), Cassel was drawing comparisons to Trent Green (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=3943217). But his last five games – 123 yards per game, 4.6 yards per attempt, three touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 43.8 quarterback rating – are basically the worst stretch of his career and the Chiefs still have yet to play the toughest part of their schedule.

This is not a picture of an ascending player. Fans, as ignorant and reactionary as they can often be, are not blind. The majority have had enough.

That majority hit an all-time high after Sunday’s game-ending debacle in San Diego where Cassel, attempting to throw a screen pass to Dexter McCluster (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=5740099), inexplicably drilled Chargers safety Eric Weddle (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=5743550) right in the belly with a perfectly thrown ball.

This came after a brilliant defensive stand by Kansas City’s defense and a 23-yard strike from Cassel to tight end Leonard Pope (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=5740107), giving hope that the Chiefs might win their first game of the season. But if you’ve followed Cassel’s career at all, you should know by now that there is no hope in such a situation.

That’s because quite literally, Cassel has never won a game when his team is trailing by seven or less in the fourth quarter with two minutes or less on the clock. Not one time in seven NFL seasons, 63 games and 48 starts. Not in New England, not in Kansas City and, the way it’s looking, not on planet Earth.

Cassel has been in such a situation nine times now, and always comes up the loser.

It happened in his first start with the Chiefs. At the conclusion of that game, trailing the Oakland Raiders by three points with one minute, seven seconds remaining, Cassel never even came close to driving the Chiefs into tying field-goal range. The offense gained all of six yards before giving the ball up on downs.

Thirty-two games later, it appears nothing has changed, and that’s why fans are ready to run Cassel right out of Kansas City on the same train that rid them of Steve Bono and Elvis Grbac. Coincidentally, Bono and Grbac also hoodwinked Chiefs general managers into acquiring them after backing up future Hall of Famers.

What heroic feats has Cassel performed in the clutch as a Chief? Let’s review.


Week 2, 2009 – Raiders 13, Chiefs 10

With only one timeout remaining and needing 50 yards to get into field goal range, Cassel dumps the ball short to Dantrell Savage for nine yards. Two snaps later he takes a sack on third-and-one.

Embarrassing anecdote: JaMarcus Russell (http://kan.scout.com/a.z?s=115&p=8&c=1&nid=4249031) wins the game with his own clutch drive. <table width="220" align="right" cellspacing="9"><tbody><tr><td>http://media.scout.com/media/image/97/979259.jpg
Cassel's first game with the Chiefs ended like his last game with the Chiefs.

</td></tr></tbody></table>

Week 14, 2009 – Bills 16, Chiefs 10

After moving the Chiefs to within 21 yards of the tying score, Cassel completes two passes for no yards before throwing an eventual interception. Later, given one last chance for a desperation drive, he dumps the ball in the middle of the field for seven yards despite not having a timeout.

Embarrassing anecdote: Cassel later claims he made no mental errors despite throwing four interceptions.


Week 15, 2009 – Browns 41, Chiefs 34

Attempting another desperation drive with no timeouts, Cassel throws the ball in the middle of the field for seven yards. Later, he attempts a Hail Mary from the 26-yard line, quite possibly the first Hail-Mary pass thrown that close to the goal line in NFL history.

Embarrassing anecdote: The Hail Mary doinks off the crossbar like a field goal.


Week 17, 2009 – Bengals 17, Chiefs 10

With two minutes remaining in the Chiefs’ season, Cassel drives the Chiefs to midfield before promptly throwing an interception.


Week 6, 2010 – Texans 35, Chiefs 31

Attempting to throw a Hail Mary, Cassel is sacked for a 12-yard loss.

There’s plenty more evidence to go around, of course. It would be easy to point out last year’s Raiders game, when Cassel completely failed to mount any sort of attempt at a game-winning drive in overtime. There’s also the fact that despite his deceptive statistical success from a year ago, Cassel’s performance when the Chiefs trailed by seven or fewer points (85 attempts, 52.9 percent completions, three touchdowns, four interceptions, 63.7 rating) was abysmal.

To be fair to Cassel, he hasn’t completely failed in late-game situations. He has, at times, directed game-tying drives, such as the one he punctuated with a 16-yard scoring strike to Dwayne Bowe in 2009 against the Dallas Cowboys.

But does anyone really remember, let alone praise, quarterbacks for game-tying drives? When Chiefs fans reminisce about Joe Montana’s 1994 Monday Night Football comeback victory over John Elway, do you think they care that Elway scored with 1:29 left? Not in the least.

No one cares about Cassel’s “comeback” against the Cowboys in 2009, either. Because he failed in overtime that day, twice. Just as he failed Sunday in San Diego. In a close game, Cassel is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode and blow everything.

The bottom line: late in the game, with his team on the wrong end of the scoreboard, Cassel has never shown an ability to go out and win. This weekend’s game against the Vikings will be his 49th start. Win or lose, most Chiefs fans will not care if he leaves Kansas City after it’s over.

Because you know he’s not coming back.

Cassel made a sweet TD pass to Bowe late in a game in 2009 (to take the lead or tie, can't remember), only to have our D turn around and give up a 50 sec. drive for a field goal.

I mean he sucks, but I know he's had at least one nice late game drive. Last year's drive against the Raiders was pretty good too - just Bowe dropped the game-clinching pass.

I agree. I also thought we would get killed Sunday and we didn't. The NFL is a weird place and nothing is a sure thing. PIT and KC both almost won their games. When you add that variable that losing helps the Chiefs chances for Luck, it becomes more up in the air.

If we get to 0-5, you can add that 5 game stretch in, plus SD, OAK, and OAK, you could be looking at 1-12 or 0-13.

Inside I thought we didn't have a chance at Luck because I thought we still had a bit of talent to compete and win some games and even possibly win Sunday. Matt Cassel proved me wrong. Stupid me. I know he sucks but just when you think he can't suck anymore than he already does and we might pull out a victory, he plays like shit again...and again...and again.

At some point all the injuries, plus record, plus future schedule, plus the proof that Cassel can't be here in the future leads to this thinking. Its natural. I am just going to watch. I am not going to root against KC, but I am not going to get upset if they lose because this becomes more realistic.

Either way, Cassel needs to go. Thats goal number one. If we don't get Luck and alteast see a little of Stanzi then thats not terrible. Still need to draft a QB though.

I've comparmentalized who we ended up with. I'm sick of trading #1 picks for QB's for which there are no other suitors. Joe Montana was the first one. Not an awful trade - he almost took us to the ship but we didn't get 1st round value out of the guy and nobody else was lining up with their 1st rounders to trade for a gimpy elbow guy on his last leg. Trent Green turned out way better than I expected for us but I never got over losing a 1st rounder for him. Carl could have easily negotiated that down to a 2nd or even 3rd. We were his only suitor as well.

I often wonder if we had gone 0-16 that year and won the number one pick, would Pioli had traded for Cassel and drafted Jackson still?

One would hope he would have been smart enough to take Stafford.

What a fucking predicament winning against Denver and Oakland that year put us in.

I think we'd better suck for luck.

Cassel made a sweet TD pass to Bowe late in a game in 2009 (to take the lead or tie, can't remember), only to have our D turn around and give up a 50 sec. drive for a field goal.

I mean he sucks, but I know he's had at least one nice late game drive. Last year's drive against the Raiders was pretty good too - just Bowe dropped the game-clinching pass.

You can't have it both ways.

If you are going to call him a "Pro Bowl" quarterback, and give him the mis-leading stats he had last year, you can't qualify his inability to perform under pressure and bring the team back.

I don't think we have to worry about Oakland. They have our number and they'll be fighting for a playoff spot. Denver however may have about the same amount of Ws as us.

I want to join the cause and help it out. The smell of curry travels farther than a Matt Cassel pass. I'm thinking that Bowe must not like to dieve out each catch it gets mad to watch but I do for a change so we will see.

Good stuff. Those numbers say all you need to know about Cassel. Unfortunately, I don't think Palko is any better. I keep wondering why we don't just give Stanzi a shot. I know he's a rookie and needs more time to groom, but why not get him some playing time? We aren't making the playoffs this year anyway.

BTW, I think all of you suck for Luck supporters are going to be disappointed. Don't get me wrong, I would love for us to be able to draft him. I just think this team has too much pride and too much talent to have the worst record in the NFL, desite having Cassel at QB.

That browns game. Blacked out. I was watching from my f-ing computer and I thought the stream was slow or something, hail mary from the 26 complete with doink off the goalpost, and we gave up 300 yards to some dude rushing LMAO

The Browns game is the one where Coach Haley "may have waved" at me.
This article is interesting and depressing. Hard to argue the facts. I don't think Cassel is a pussy like Elvis or Huard. He's not as stupid as Bono. But he doesn't have the ability to think fast or improvise. It always looks like he's afraid he's going to make a mistake. He'd be a great number two QB, but he just doesn't have the charisma or field savvy to be a true #1 QB.

But seriously, I'm not going to get that specific because I think they will surprise in some of them and win despite the pitiful QB play.

I'll give you this much, though. I don't think they have much of a chance to win against the Pats, Packers, Jets, or Bears. I would add Steelers to this but judging by the way they played in week 1 as well as against the Colts, I think we have a shot.

Heh, I guess I did get kinda specific after all.

Its strange to me. I don't understand why he's the #3. From everything I've seen from him so far, he looks better than both Palko and Cassel. If nothing else, he should at least be the #2.

I think 2 or 3 will be max wins this year. The bad teams may win one or two during mid season, and one guaranteed during latter part of season to the obvious playoff teams who rest starters in the last week of the season.

I don't agree with the author's 3 primary reasons for Stanzi generally being popular with Chief fans. His reasons were; 1.) He was a local guy from Iowa, 2.) He was successful at Iowa and 3.) He is a QB. I do realize that there are many homers who want to see Stanzi play because of their personal bias. To an extent, I am one of them. What the author is neglecting is how starved this fanbase is for SOMEONE to at least bring a spark to the offense. I mean, with Cassel, Casseling it up the way he has been, it has made the curiosity for what we potentially have for the future almost unbearably brutal.

I'm not an Iowa fan, but watching Cassel, my god you better have something to try if the dude keeps on performing at his current level. The Chiefs are already the butt of the joke. I can't imagine what people will think if Cassel is left in for the entire season and nothing else is tried when you have two other dudes who play the same position on the team

I was mostly agreeing with him until he said Stanzi doesn't bring more than Shot Put Palko.

What a load of crap.


He ignored the most glaring reason Chiefs fans want to see Stanzi play; Cassel and Palko have had their chance and shown that they suck.

At this point, at least in the minds of fans, the only way it could hurt is if he played well enough to take QB off the radar in next years draft.

The other suspect is one Ricky Stanzi, a rookie fifth-round draft pick out of Iowa. He lost the #2 battle in the pre-season, but to the surprise of those in KC, was retained as #3 despite new ruling stating that a third quarterback is not a roster requirement. He's started many games in Iowa, but was largely viewed on as a safe draft pick at the position of quarterback, expected to be a back-up for at least a couple of years.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that a guy that doesn't have a fucking clue is someone whose opinion I find valuable.
