NFL Rumors: Is Matt Cassel Done with the Chiefs?
There will certainly be lots of NFL rumors floating around the Kansas City Chiefs this off-season given how unsettled their quarterback situation appears to be after an ineffective Matt Cassel has been ruled out of the Week 6 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
You may remember hearing a little something about Chiefs fans cheering when Cassel went down with a concussion last week. Now, the Brady Quinn era is about to begin, even if it is for one game.
Right now, the Chiefs sit at 1-4 heading into Week 6 with their only win coming in overtime against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. They did play well against the Baltimore Ravens last week but that all went for naught as they lost 9-6.
Matt Cassel came to the Chiefs with high hopes. He had led the New England Patriots to an 11-5 record in 2008, a campaign that saw him toss 21 touchdowns, only 11 interceptions, and throw for 3,693 yards with a 63.4 completion percentage. So far, Cassel has not lived up to expectations.
If the Chiefs decide to go another route at quarterback it will most likely be through the NFL Draft as the free agents at the position are hardly overwhelming with Jason Campbell shaping up to be the best available quarterback in free agency. If the Chiefs truly want to find their quarterback that can lead a talented team back to where it needs to be it will have to be through the draft.
Right now, however, the Chiefs are stuck with Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi as their only other options and Cassel is better than both of them so he can still show the coaching staff and the fans that he is the man in Kansas City when he comes back healthy. He can also prove to them that another direction is necessary.
