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).

Tom Brady Disappointed Matt Cassel Won't Get to Play Monday Against Patriots

FOXBORO, Mass. -- So much for Matt Cassel's reunion. Monday would have served as an entertaining opportunity for Cassel to reunite with some of his former Patriots teammates when the Chiefs visit Gillette Stadium.

Matt Schaub and Matt Cassel Most Likely Out for the Year

Matt Schaub The Texans and Chiefs have been deterred by the loss of each of their biggest offensive weapons, and now they have been deprived of their starting quarterbacks for what looks like the rest of the season.
