Found November 07, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 31 (+0) Record: 1-7 I still like the Chiefs more than the Jaguars as long as Matt Cassel is their quarterback. As long as his turnover rate regresses somewhat to the mean going forward, he’s their best option at quarterback. If not for two defensive touchdowns, the Chiefs could have easily hung with and beaten the Chargers. I suspect with better turnover luck going forward, they will have a couple chances to eke out some victories. Right now they’re at -20 in turnovers on the year. Even if they were to tie the NFL record of -30, that would still mean a twofold improvement in their turnover margin in the 2nd half of the season. For the record, the record since the merger is -28. Turnovers aside, they rank 31st in yards per play differential and 24th in rate of sustaining drives differential. I would pick them to beat the Jaguars, who are dead last in both, if they played. Speaking of those two terrible teams, we have to watch them in back to back weeks on Thursday Night Fo...

Sell High: Dwayne Bowe

I’ll be catching rainbows from Brady Quinn Juan… So, Brady Quinn has been ruled out this week. Who cares? Matt Cassel only has eyes for Bowe, but will have issues throwing from his back against the Steelers. After this game, Quinn will be back under center and Bowe will have little value. The Chiefs released Rout and are looking to rebuild. I’m not sure why didn’t shop Bowe...
