I think its time for the Cassel doubters to eat their crow

The kid deserves some respect.

After todays game Im starting to believe in the guy as our quarterback. He just displayed a true testament of toughness out there and leadership.

To some people I understand its about him leading us to the playoffs and winning the superbowl in order for them to be satisfied...yada yada yada

Im not going to go by that mindset at all. I look at this game and I see the way he played and it tells me a lot about his character. We should be proud. We got a pretty good quarterback folks. That 2nd round pick we gave up was well worth it.

I think composure, toughness, and leadership are key attributes for a quarterback. Cassel has those qualities and I also love the fact that he plays with passion too.

However, I believe the number one attribute as a quarterback is the ability to respond under pressure. So now I don't want to jump the gun here and say he has that capability, but I will say, after coming back from an appendectomy and performing the way he did, is a great sign and a step in the direction towards performing well under pressure. So far so good Matt. Keep up the good work you sure as heck got my support.

The bottom line, QB is the most important position on the field, and we are seeing Cassel grow into the role of the leader of this team as the weeks go by, but it is still a team sport, hell, the ultimate team sport, and we just have too many deficiencies ot overcome to expect anyone to overcome them.

Do you really think this offense has less talent than NE's first SB team?

Kudos to Cassel to having a very good year. It doesn't look like he will be the limiting factor this season. I'll give him that.
Good post, seedy.

You people really need to have higher standards.

It was a gutty, winning peformance, but he has a ways to go before he proves he's worthy of being called a franchise QB. He has to play well the next three weeks in a row, or there will be questions.

This. A franchise-level game manager needs to be able to lead a comeback, when (not if) the need arises. No QB will be successful 100% of comeback attempts. But you want a guy you'd bet on being successful.

You know, I'm not so sure about that. I think he has a very good chance of being not only a Franchise guy but a Top Five guy as well.

He's improved exponentially this year. It's really only his third year of playing football since high school. He's not only improved on the field by leaps and bounds, but he continues to impress as THE LEADER of this football team.

I never expected such a turnaround from last season and at this point in time, I don't think he's even close to his ceiling.

The guy is really ****ing impressive and I'm more excited about the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs since Len Dawson was winning championships.

Cassel isn't Brady and Haley isn't BB. I am not naive enough to think otherwise. We need more talent. 99% of teams do.

Dumb correlation.

What I saw out of Matt Cassel today was a will to win and if that means rushing for 20 yards than so be it. If that means hanging in the pocket and getting punished for it a few times, so be it. If that means throwing the ball away or taking early time outs, then so be it. This ****in guy is IN CONTROL. He knows what he's doing and does it with a passion. And, at the end of the day, he's pretty ****ing good at what he does. What the hell else do people want?

All the other great QBs in the league had the supporting cast to make them great. The Chiefs are almost there. Matt is the least of our problems. I've been back and forth, but for now...Matt Cassel is the man and I can't think of another QB I'd have over him. You go Matt! Guts...determination...character...and performance...he showed it all this season, and today he out performed the Rapist after HIS surgery...

I shall put my faith in Matt. He's at least as good for us as Trent was...and that was pretty ****in' good.

...I've had a lot to drink today, fwiw...

I think this team has less talent in key positions on both sides of the ball, not specifically on offense.

That Patriot team had a hell of a defense.

This Chief defense is lacking too much in the front 7 to really make any noise against a good team in teh playoffs.

Crennel is working wonders with scheme with this defense, but when w eplays teams that can run and pass effectively, scheme can't make a difference.

I think they can win a playoff game if it's in Arrowhead. But no way if it's on the road. But to think we'll have a winning record this year is unthinkable just a couple months ago. Life is good.

Regardless of how well Cassel plays in the playoffs (if we get there), this team as a whole is probably not going deep. All I cared about this season was Cassel proving or not proving he can be a guy we can depend on.

I think it's safe to say he bought another year. However, I'm still on board with drafting a QB early. Say, a Christian Ponder type guy.
Winning one playoff game this year, can be done. Ravens or Jets would be our opponent more than likely. Both of them have QB's that are the same as Cassel. I'm not expecting a deep run at all. But one win or Cassel proving he is up to the challenge would be nice to see.

The QB I want us to draft is Nathan Enderle from Idaho in the 3rd or 4th.

I have zero clue why someone thinks this team couldn't win a playoff game.

Have you seen some of the shit these other teams do from week to week?

The Patriots were a complete team. That defense with Seymour, McGinest, Bruschi, Vrabel, Milloy, Hamilton, Phifer, and Law?
