The last time the New England Patriots faced the Kansas City Chiefs, an injury to Tom Brady created an opportunity for Matt Cassel to earn himself a job as an NFL starting quarterback.

New England Patriots: AFC East Nearly a Lock?

The New England Patriots defeated the New York Jets yesterday giving them a two game lead in the AFC East.  The Patriots now 6-3 overall, have commanding control of the division and look to be on their way to another division crown.  The Buffalo Bills, who defeated the Patriots earlier in the year, have slipped to 5-4 and seem to have come back down to Earth since their great start...

Matt Cassel’s injury takes away the best part of Week 11

Matt Cassel was supposed to make his return to New England this week When the season schedule was released, two thoughts went through my mind 1. I hope we have an NFL season (remember, it was still the lockout) 2. What games are most intriguing? There is a difference between “good” and “intriguing”. Good games are games such as the Jets games or the Eagles game, games that...

Patriots to Continue Winning Ways vs Chiefs,Tyler Palko?

Tyler who? Matt Cassel suffered injuries to both his shoulder and his hand last week, the latter requiring surgery which was performed on Monday. The Kansas City Chiefs are holding out hope that he will return later in the year when it’s fully healed, but for now the team will have to rely on back-up Tyler Palko. The ineptitude of the entire AFC West division has made it a four...

Red Zone | What to do with rest of Chiefs' season

Unbelievable the sense of gloom around KC regarding the Chiefs, who are just a game out of first place in the AFC West. But it's not misplaced, not with the Chiefs playing the way they are and Matt Cassel apparently being finished for the season (one player told me yesterday he and his teammates were told by the coaches that Cassel won't return this season).

Todd Haley holding out hope for Cassel’s return

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel might miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery on his right hand on Monday night, but coach Todd Haley isn’t ready to count him out just yet. Haley spoke to reporters Wednesday and, to the surprise of no one who has ever heard a report about an athlete’s surgery,…

Fantasy Football Week 11 Start ‘Em Sit ‘Em

So now more than ever it is time to get real creative owners. The injuries to QBs such as Matt Schaub and Matt Cassell can very well destroy seasons for guys like Dwayne Bowe and Andre Johnson, once Johnson returns.

Michael Felger’s Circular Jets Arguments

Michael Felger of “98.5 the Sports Hub”, has spent the last three years purposely tweaking Patriot fans over the New York Jets. Those who listen to Felger daily know that while he might admit he’s wrong from time to time, he loves to play the “lone wolf” card. He viciously attacked Claude Julien all season last year, portraying him as a coach whose style was unwinnable...

Patriots West: Bill Belichick Old Faces in a New Place

When the Kansas City Chiefs come to town Monday Night, there will be a host of familiar faces that will be on hand. Scott Pioli, Romeo Crennel and Todd Haley have all worked with Belichick. Pioli worked here in New England as Belichick’s personnel man. Crennel and Haley both worked with Belichick with the New York Jets. Crennel also was Belichick’s defensive coordinator here...
