NFL  > Kansas City Chiefs  > DEAR MATT CASSEL : BIG TIME BUST or FRANCHISE MUST ?
July 15, 2009, 02:19 AM
ATTENTION MATT CASSEL & CHIEFS FANS : DIE - HARD NEW ENGLAND Fan Here ... Watched a lot of bad QBs in my time rootin' for the Pats . For every Steve Grogan or Drew Bledsoe that laced 'em up here in Foxboro - there have been 20 Tony Easons . I was sittin' in the stands back in 2001 the day the reigns were turned over to some unknown doe-eyed NOBODY named BRADY . We won the game ( Colts ) - but this new Qb didn't particularly impress me ( Guess I was wrong ) I felt the same way about you Cassel - only way worse . I thought YOU should have been cut in preseason , and by week 4 was prayin' that we 'd bring in a veteren ( hell even re-enlisting Vinny D or Flutie seemed wise ) . WELL ...I WAS WRONG ( Again ) You turned out to own the same competitive spark that Tom Brady had at the start of his career ... only with BETTER mechanics ( and quicker feet ) .Don't get me wrong - I don't know anybody that thinks Matt Cassel isn't still raw and won't make young qb mistakes ( but shoot , Brady couldn't even get the Pats back to the playoffs in his year 2 ). Given the chance ~ I have no doubt you can play Qb in the NFL at a high level and I beleieve KC just landed themselves the best Qb they've had since Montana's swan song . It's very fitting that it will be exactly 40 years ago this season that KC enjoyed their one and only Super Win : In my opinion -THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS JUST TOOK A GIANT LEAP TOWARD RETURNING TO THEIR ONCE GREAT TRADITION OF WINNING ( see Stram / Dawson / Garrett / Lanier ) . Good luck Matt , we'll be watchin' up here in Mass and pullin' for you ( unless of course ~ your playin' u-know-who ) . PS - Don't know if you noticed but we ended up takin' Eugene Chung ( Oregon safety ) with that 2nd rounder we got from Scott for you - If he ends up being half the player u turned out to be ....we'll be happy .
