Matt Cassel - The NFLís Most Dangerous Quarterback

The NFLís Most Dangerous Quarterback

Forget Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and Jay Cutler.

Matt Cassel is the NFLís most dangerous quarterback.

No, Cassel isnít about to start raining touchdowns on NFL secondaries or firing lasers halfway across the field every week. Heís not headed to the Pro Bowl. Cassel is the most dangerous quarterback in the NFL because only he has the power to destroy the Kansas City Chiefs.

Thereís no sense in denying it anymore Ė the Chiefs are a damn good football team. But everything Scott Pioli and Todd Haley have built in the last 21 months is in jeopardy right now. The reconstructed offensive line, the league-leading rushing attack, Romeo Crennelís defensive revolution Ė it can all be rendered null and void by the lone efforts of a single man. All it takes is a few flicks of Casselís right wrist and the whole thing implodes.

Yes, the Chiefs are 5-2 and leading the AFC West. Unfortunately, winning is a great deodorant. Something in Kansas City stinks.

Itís Cassel, and heís holding back the Chiefs from their true potential. Sundayís overtime dogfight with Buffalo made it obvious. Kansas City rushed for 274 yards, held the Bills to 10 points and still needed five quarters to win.

For the record, only four NFL teams have rushed for at least 250 yards in a game this year Ė the Chiefs, Raiders, Jets and Texans. But only one team scored fewer than 34 points while doing so Ė the Chiefs, who required overtime to limp their way to a meager 13 points.

Just coincidence?

Letís take a look at the teams who have rushed for 200 or more yards in a game this season Ė the Chiefs, Raiders, Giants, Saints, Bears, Jaguars, Ravens, Texans, Jets, Falcons, Patriots, Steelers and Titans. Not only are the Chiefs the only team on that list to score fewer than 23 points in such a game, they are the only team to lose a game while running for at least 200 yards.


Cassel has been disappointing
on third down.

Conclusion: KCís running game and defense have been propping up Cassel all season long.

The problem: They canít do it every week.

The bigger problem: Even when they do it, thereís no guarantee Cassel wonít screw it up.

Sundayís game against Buffalo is all the proof you need. Facing a defense that hasnít been able to get off the field on third down all year long, the Chiefs converted a pathetic 26 percent of their third-down attempts (4/15). The sad thing is two of those conversions were running plays, and a third was a screen pass.

Thatís right. Cassel went five quarters against one of the NFLís worst defenses and converted one third down on his own merits. Actually, to be fair, he was assisted by Jamaal Charles, who pulled down a high throw and muscled his way just past the sticks for a seven-yard gain.

We shouldnít be surprised, however, because the Chiefs have been terrible on third down all year and now rank 24th. Cassel is completing just 51.8 percent of his passes on third down, which ranks near the bottom of the league with prolific passers such as Derek Anderson (51.1), Mark Sanchez (49.3), Jay Cutler (51.2) and Donovan McNabb (45). Not surprisingly, Anderson, Cutler and McNabb also lead three of the NFLís worst third-down and overall offenses.

Itís interesting to note that Casselís inept third-down play completely separates him from the leagueís highest-rated quarterbacks, which he is conveniently placed among thanks to a 90.4 passer rating. His third-down completion percentage is a full 4.3 points lower than his closest Top 10 competitor, Philip Rivers.

Todd Haley and Charlie Weis realize this, fortunately, which is why they repeatedly hand the ball to running backs on third and long. Itís becoming more and more apparent they donít trust their quarterback farther than he can throw them, so to speak.

Why should Chiefs fans?

The truly scary part of this Ė the real danger of The NFLís Most Dangerous Quarterback Ė is that there are fans and media promoting the idea that Cassel is capable of taking the Chiefs somewhere. Every week, after Kansas Cityís running game and defense churns out another win, youíll find people around the blogosphere patting Cassel on the back, talking about his great quarterback rating or the fact heís only thrown three interceptions. This week Inside the NFL co-hosts Phil Simms and Warren Sapp hopped on Casselís bandwagon.

ďI always judge quarterbacks like this,Ē Simms said Wednesday night. ďWhen you drop back to throw it, you get so many opportunities during a game, if theyíre open. [Cassel] hits those open guys at a very high percentage just like the top quarterbacks in the NFL.Ē

ďThe man is driving the bus at times, heís not just riding it,Ē said Sapp. ďYou canít just say heís riding the bus. Cassel makes plays for this team to go out and win games.Ē

Will Cassel survive the Raiders?
Getty Images
You honestly have to wonder if Simms and Sapp even watch Chiefs games. Cassel narrowly avoided interceptions on three passes against Buffalo, overthrew a wide-open Jamaal Charles by five yards at one point and chunked a ball at a receiverís feet on third-and-one with the game on the line.

All Simms and Sapp had to do was watch their own showís highlights. They would have seen an exasperated Todd Haley bemoaning Casselís inability to throw a deep ball intended for Dwayne Bowe on time, resulting in a blown opportunity for a touchdown. Thatís just another day at the office for Danger Matt.

But regardless of the reasons for his support, itís official now Ė The Matt Cassel Propaganda Machine is fully functional. Forget KCís running game and defense. If the NFL media starts propping up Cassel and validating the opinions of Chiefs fans who desperately want to believe heís Tom Brady 2.0, I donít know where this goes, but it scares me.

What I do know is this Ė the Chiefs are headed to Oakland for a game of monstrous, epic proportions. Godzilla vs. King Kong figures to be the halftime show the way this shindig is shaping up. The Raiders are trying to claw their way back to relevancy for the first time in almost a decade, and Kansas City is standing in their way. Oakland head coach Tom Cable has whipped the Bay Area into a frenzy this week and Al Davis may just wash his hair for this game. At some point, I fully expect Ben Davidson to charge into the Chiefsí broadcast booth and spear Len Dawson.

With matchups against Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Miami remaining, not to mention a trip to Arrowhead Stadium, Sunday is essentially a playoff game for Oakland, and their most important contest since Super Bowl XXXVII. The Chiefs are walking into hell, and itís hotter than ever.

The Raiders will bring the AFCís best pass rush (Oakland is #1 in sacks per pass attempt) and, most likely, a sold-out, spiked, and painted-up crowd out for Chiefs blood thundering down on Casselís head. Oakland knows heís Kansas Cityís weak spot. Theyíll attack him. If heís anything close to the quarterback heís supposed to be, heíll play his best game of the season.

For the record: I donít believe Cassel is capable of winning this game.

Itís going to be war. The Chiefs need a general, not a little drummer boy who hands the ball off to the real soldiers.

Most fans don't realize how terrible Cassel is.

There are literally people out there who don't doubt that Cassel is the man for the Chiefs
.

The sad thing is one loss won't change their opinion.
