Matt Cassel was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009 and was given a $63 Million contract. Cassel became available due to him making the most of his chances when Tom Brady was injured and knocked out in Week 1 of the 2008 Season, ironically against the Kansas City Chiefs. He has done well for himself in KC, including leading them to the Division Championship last season. For Matt Cassel, his career as a Chief has been up and down, and now he is about to be on another downhill slide as his 2011 season may be done due to a significant hand injury.

I'm a fan of yours and I take alot of crappy comments about the Chiefs but I will continue to take those comments cause I have faith in you, the Chiefs!! Can't you do the same for us fans and show us that you have faith in yourselves and each other?! Chiefs all the way baby!!! :-))
