Andy Reid discusses Casshole, Stanzi, and more

http://www.kansascity.com/2013/02/07...to-say-if.html

Chiefs’ Reid: Too early to say if Cassel will stay in KC

By ADAM TEICHER

The Kansas City Star

Quarterback Matt Cassel has been among the regulars since the end of the season working out at the Chiefs’ Truman Sports Complex practice facility.

That doesn’t necessarily mean Cassel will be a part of things when the Chiefs begin organized team workouts in April. Even though it’s been a month since he took the job as Chiefs head coach, Andy Reid hasn’t made a commitment to Cassel.

“I’m going to just let that play out,’’ Reid said when asked whether Cassel would play for the Chiefs in 2013. “We’re too early in the process to know that. We’ll continue to evaluate it. We’re evaluating him just like we do a free agent. That’s what you do, and the thing about that is it takes time. I think he realizes that. That’s how it works when there’s a change.’’

Cassel was benched midway through last season, his fourth with the Chiefs, and replaced by Brady Quinn. Cassel ranked 32nd and last in passer rating among quarterbacks who threw enough passes to qualify.

Cassel’s 2013 salary is $7.5 million, making it unlikely the Chiefs would retain him unless he’s their starter.

Their other quarterbacks last season were Quinn, a potential unrestricted free agent, Ricky Stanzi and Alex Tanney, who joined the Chiefs last year as an undrafted rookie and spent all season on the injured-reserve list.

Reid was similarly non-committal on whether the Chiefs would attempt to re-sign Quinn, who finished with a lower passer rating than Cassel. He didn’t throw enough passes to qualify for the ranking.

But Reid sounded intrigued by Stanzi. He joined the Chiefs as a fifth-round draft pick from Iowa two years ago but hasn’t played in a regular-season game.

“I watched a ton of his (video) from college,’’ Reid said. “I watched all of it. I watched everything he has from here. There’s just not that much of it. That’s a hard (evaluation). You want to see them in games. I’ve heard good things about him, both of those guys (including Cassel) and actually Brady, too. But with Stanzi you just don’t have as much information.

“There’s probably not enough on Ricky (to have an informed opinion), certainly not enough on what we’ll ask him to do. Matt, you’ve got a little better feel about just because there’s more snaps. Matt’s a good football player.’’

The Chiefs’ list of potential free agents also includes their leading receiver, Dwayne Bowe, two other starters in left tackle Branden Albert and defensive end Glenn Dorsey, and Pro Bowl punter Dustin Colquitt.

Bowe played last season as the franchise player. He would appear to be the most likely candidate to become the franchise player again if the sides don’t agree to terms of a long-term contract first. The period to designate a franchise player begins Feb. 18. Free agency begins in March.

“We’re going through that whole process right now,’’ Reid said when asked which potential free agents would be a priority for the Chiefs to re-sign. “It’s almost too early to say. We’re reaching out. We’re talking to them.’’

Reid said he is getting to know many of the Chiefs players. Others he already knew from his time with Philadelphia. The Eagles hoped to draft some of them, including Albert and safety Eric Berry, and Reid spent time with them as they were coming out of college.

“What’s funny is that some of these kids, Branden being one of them, I had spent a lot of time with before the draft, before they came out,’’ Reid said. “Eric Berry was in here today, making sure his hand was OK. He’s good. So seeing them is kind of funny. Now they’ve all grown up. They’re men and they’ve made it.’’

The Chiefs will begin their organized offseason conditioning program on April 1. They will have 10 offseason practices in May and a mandatory three-day minicamp in June.

Because they have a new head coach, the Chiefs will also have an extra minicamp in May.

If Reid sounded intrigued, it was probably because he was shocked we never played Stanzi in the regular season.

I'm sure Andy wants to see if he can turn into something that can be a serviceable backup/trade piece ala Kolb in a few years.

I love what Reid said here. "That’s how it works when there’s a change."

Translation: You have no more friends in the front office or the coaching staff, Matt. You're all alone. You have no more excuses. You will be judged the way you should have been judged 4 years ago when you came in, and you will lose.

Ya hopefully he plays the last game of the season after we go 14-1. We can sit Geno and have Stanzi throw 6 or 7 td's then trade him for a first rounder.

*****'s head in alley this morning, tire tread on candy wrapper. This roster is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The lockers are extended gutters and the gutters are full of shitty QBs and when the cuts come down, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their turnovers and overthrown passes will foam up about their waists and Brady Quinn and Matt Cassel will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No."

Check out Reid's interview with Dave Stewart here:

http://youtu.be/Stkgbv9v25Q

Good stuff. Specifically about the QB, he says that his QB must be an extension of him on the field, and that the QB must be able to elevate the game of those around him. He is also specifically asked about whether he believes that he can succeed with a "game manager" at QB and Reid insists that the QB has to be good enough to go win games for you and to raise the level of play around him.

Basically, it's a long way of saying adios Matt Cassel...

Reid, and Dorsey for that matter, have made it clear that they think in today's age a QB needs to be a able to win you games. They can't just manage a game.
