Improving mechanics helps Cassel

From ESPN Insider last week, before Indy:

The Kansas City Chiefs suffered two brutal losses to start the season, and quarterback Matt Cassel was a large cause of it. Granted, they lost Jamaal Charles in the process, but Cassel posted quarterback ratings of 64.5 and 44.5 in those contests. The good news for Chiefs fans is that Cassel's rating topped 102 the past two weeks, as the Chiefs nearly took down the San Diego Chargers and earned their first victory of the season versus the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Offensive coordinator Bill Muir credits Cassel's hard work on improving his mechanics for the dramatic change in success.

"(Quarterbacks coach) Jim Zorn has been doing a heck of a job with him, working on his mechanics," Muir said, "and I think that's really the most encouraging thing."

The Chiefs have a tasty matchup with the struggling Indianapolis Colts Sunday. With a win, they could head to their bye week at 2-3 and with the hope they can remain competitive despite losing so many of their top players to injuries already.

It's true though. When his footwork is good, he plays very well. When his footwork isn't sound, he throws 3 INTs. It's that simple with him, which is baffling.

Don't know if I read it on here, read it on the internet, or heard it on TV, but a follow-up to the above is somehow Zorn has changed his delivery, and taken the arc out of his passes. I don't believe it. I think the up and usually down performance is mental rather than physical, but it's kind of interesting.

When Cassel can run up in the pocket like hes an outfielder throwing a guy out at home he can get the ball 30 yards down field!

Late Bloomer? I don't believe in Cassel; I think he's a spaz who has little ability to improvise effectively. I just don't see him being 'the guy'.

But- for the sake of argument, how many good-to-very good QBs developed late? Rich Gannon comes to mind. Trent Green. Hell, you can technically put Kurt Warner in that category. (Stop- I'm not suggesting an impossible comparison).

So why can't Cassel learn mechanics at 29? Yeah, I'm totally playing devil's advocate but other than an emotional " dummy- S4L!", why can't Cassel be one of those guys? He obviously has heart and more than a little competitiveness. Does he not possess certain qualities you'd like to see in a QB?

Looking at it from all sides...

This question has been asked already and the only real QB that we came up with that developed into a franchise QB at or beyond Cassel's age was Steve Young.
