Found October 19, 2012 on Air It Out Sport:
In a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens, starting Kansas City quarterback, Matt Cassel, took a hit from Baltimore’s Haloti Ngata that caused Cassel to leave the field and head to the locker room early. As in most cases when players are taken off the field, the fans are anything but quiet in letting their support be heard for the injured athlete. In this case, however, the Chiefs were playing a home game in front of thousands and their fans were yelling in support of Cassel getting hit. Cassel’s had a tough season so far to say the least. He has nine interceptions with only five touchdowns. With a ratio like that it is understandable for fans to expect better from their starting quarterback, but it is completely appalling for fans to be celebrating an injury. Eric Winston of the Chiefs felt the same way, “It’s 100 percent sickening,” according to a post on abcnewsgo.com. Winston went on to say, “If he’s not the best quarterback, he’s not the ...

P Colquitt a bright spot for Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) In what will come as a huge relief to worried, frustrated, restive and angry Kansas City fans, Dustin Colquitt sounds like he has no desire to leave the Chiefs. If Colquitt does sign a new contract, it also will be one less criticism that embattled general manager Scott Pioli has to dodge. Colquitt has become a deadeye master of directional punting, providing...

Pioli: 'I've made mistakes'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The worn-out notebook with the blue cover that Scott Pioli drags out of pile of paperwork on his desk is from 1994. The handwriting inside of it, mostly scouting reports on college players from a bygone era, is tiny and deliberate. It's the few pages toward the front, though, that are the most interesting. That's where the current Chiefs general manager...

Debate: Should the Rams be interested in Dwayne Bowe?

As the Chiefs begin to plummet into obscurity, Dwayne Bowe wants out. Again.  The talented receiver is the only weapon in the Kansas City passing game, but with only a one-year deal in his pocket and a crashing tide of changes due to hit his team, he may no longer be a part of their long-term plans. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli would be foolish not to listen to offers before the NFL...

Chiefs won't settle on starting QB until next week

Romeo Crennel doesn't like quarterback controversies. So why did he create one? The Kansas City Chiefs coach announced this week that Matt Cassel had been cleared to return to non-contact practice work with the team after missing a week because of a concussion. In doing so, Crennel made sure everyone understood that Cassel and last week's starter, Brady Quinn, would split...

Ray Lewis tells Haloti Ngata, 'I'll be back, don't worry'

NFL veteran Ray Lewis suffered a torn triceps Sunday that put him on the Baltimore Ravens' injured reserve list leaving fans wondering if he would ever return.Ravens coach John Harbaugh gave fans some hope when he announced Lewis would be placed on injured reserve with the "designated to return" tag."I have no idea, we have no idea, whether that timeframe has anything...

Baltimore Ravens mid-week injury report for week 7

Prior to this past week, the Baltimore Ravens were one of the more healthier teams in football, but that luck ran out last Sunday as the Ravens lost CB Lardarius Webb and LB Ray Lewis to season ending injuries. Baltimore's injury report yesterday had some names on it that have not been there all season. First we will begin with yesterday's injury report:   Did not...

Prediction Saturday: Ravens won’t be able to overcome injuries

When the schedule was released way back in April, I, along with quite a few others, circled this game on the schedule as a tough one for the Ravens. That was assuming good health for Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Ed Reed and Haloti Ngata among others. Now, this game could be a blowout. Fortunately for the Ravens, I don’t think they will get blown out. Joe Flacco and the offense play...
