Report: Chiefs Losing Confidence In QB Matt Cassel -

Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports that QB Matt Cassel is losing the confidence of “players and many others” in the Chiefs’ organization with his dismal play of late. Cassel, incredibly, is on pace for 40 turnovers. Head coach Romeo Crennel still has Cassel’s back, but it remains to be seen how long it will last. “Look, there’s a big reason why they went after Peyton Manning as hard as they did this offseason,” a source with knowledge of GM Scott Pioli’s thinking told Yahoo. “What you’re seeing from Cassel is pretty much what was expected. He’s a really nice backup, not a starter.” The Chiefs should have re-signed Kyle Orton in the offseason. They’re stuck with Brady Quinn and Ricky Stanzi behind Cassel on the depth chart. Stanzi was awful in the preseason.
