Found November 02, 2012 on Razzball Football:
So this was it.  This was the night that Matt Cassel could’ve saved his starting job.  Could’ve saved the Chiefs from a 1-7 start and from forcing Chiefs fans into watching the Brady Quinn era unfold before their nearly gouged out eyes.  Cassel could not have asked for a better matchup to prove his mettle as the Chargers ranked 10th worst in terms of fantasy QBs scoring against them.  Ok, he could’ve asked for the New Orleans Saints but he already went against them and failed.  This was supposed to be a hungry Matt.  A Matt that wanted to reclaim his job and prove he was worthy of a starting quarterback job in the NFL.  Instead of seeing resiliency, Cassel treated us to dormancy as he threw for only 181 yards while turning the ball over twice for defensive touchdowns.  Sure, the INT could’ve been caught by his receiver but he could’ve thrown it a bit better.  No reason to throw a bullet to a guy 10 feet away from you and if you do, maybe you shouldn’t throw it high and a little behi...

Could the Chiefs be turning to Ricky Stanzi?

Coach Romeo Crennel left the door open for Ricky Stanzi to see game action if Brady Quinn (concussion) isn’t cleared for Week 10. ”We will evaluate it and see which way we go,” Crennel said. We are tentatively expecting to see Quinn back under center versus the Steelers, who should be picked up as a spot fantasy defense start in any league where they remain available. Crennel...

For Chiefs, it'll get worse before it gets better

It has come to this. A Chiefs pal, the reddest of red, on Monday sends over the following text: "Am I wrong for wanting the Chiefs to go 1-15, and rooting for the Browns to win? I feel kind of dirty." Oh, no. No, no, no. Embrace the bad. Embrace the stench. The superb web site ProFootballReference.com, among its other nooks and crannies, quantifies NFL teams by something...

Kansas City Chiefs: Week 9 NFL Power Rankings (#31)

Last week: 30 (-1) Record: 1-6 The Chiefs have yet to lead in regulation this year. Meanwhile, when Head Coach Romeo Crennel was asked why Jamaal Charles only got 5 carries last week, he said “I’m not exactly sure.” I get that Brian Daboll calls the play, but having no clue why your best offensive player isn’t getting the ball is ridiculous. Both of them should be fired....

Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers Preview, Point Spread, and Prediction

With the Denver Broncos being the new team to beat in the AFC West, the Chiefs and Chargers are beginning to free fall. The Chiefs have lost four in a row, while the Chargers have lost three. One team will break their streak this week, but it will not be in impressive fashion. Football was probably a lot more fun for Matt Cassel back at Chatsworth High School than it’s been in...

Bowe Chips in 79 Yards vs. Chargers

Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe was targeted 10 times in Thursday's game against the Chargers. Bowe caught eight passes for 79 yards but lost a fumble in the first quarter.Fantasy Spin:Bowe came in having caught just six passes for 90 yards in the last two games.

The Best Moments From Chiefs-Chargers

In case you weren’t masochistic enough to tune in for a weeknight game between two doomed head coaches, bad news: neither of them were summarily fired. Also, the game was kinda watchable for only a half and even that’s being generous. A stupid Philip Rivers interception let the Chiefs hang around longer than they had any right to, but Kansas City is full of polite Midwestern...
