Is there any doubt left in the minds of Chiefs fans everywhere what needs to happen next? The Chiefs must move on from Matt Cassel FAST.This may sound a bit harsh, considering the Chiefs as a team and organization all stink right now, but Matt Cassel is the main reason the Chiefs are a losing franchise. I say that with some reservations, not because of any doubt that it's true, but because I generally like Cassel overall. He's a fiery leader, he's willing to stick his head into a play to block when needed, he plays hurt and seems to be a very tough dude overall. He just happens to be a lousy quarterback.I think Cassel could potentially serve as an upper-tier backup QB somewhere, but this nonsense of putting an organization's (and fan base's) faith in him as a leader to the promised land has got to stop.First things first: Cassel throws the single ugliest ball out of any NFL QB (that's right, I'm including Tebow in that argument). Sure, the league is riddl...

  • Come on people, the problem is at least also the GM and the coach and the rest of the team. Cassel cant do it on his own, can he. There is near zero leadership in the Cheifs team. Come on, put the blame where it belongs. Would really like to see a newspaper ad calling for change from the fans, just like the Royals fans put out.
  • Cassel is a very good backup QB. He had a good year with the Patriots when Brady was injured, but note that they immediately traded him at the end of the season. Unfortunately Quinn has had a number of tries and is not even an average NFL QB starter. Stanzi has potential, but not there yet. Since getting Cassel, the Chiefs have passed on far too many starting QBs and we have to live with this in 2012.
