The Chiefs weren't/aren't ready for prime time. We all knew that. We got exactly what we should've expected: a young rebuilding team with no big game experience gave it away to a veteran playoff team. They don't have the talent to compete at that level yet, and they don't have the seasoning to compete at that level yet. Maybe they will in 2011, after the infusion of a little bit more talent on both sides of the ball.

As for Cassel, still not a fan. Didn't want the guy, don't want the guy, but he's who we've got, and we'd better hope he's more like the good 2010 Cassel going forward, and less like the bad 2009/2010 Cassel. I'm not trying to defend him, just trying to make the point that laying this one on his shoulders is taking it way too easy on everybody else.
