I think Matt Cassel will be our Zack Greinke and wake this sleeping giant all the way to the Superbowl.

Cassel will be solid. Just need to get him another good reciever.

Before he came I was saying no no no.

Now that he is here I am being cuatiously optimistic, and reserving judgement until he has had time under center for the Kansas City Chiefs.

i just hope it wasnt New Englands system and their recievers that made him look so good.

He is intended to be by our GM/HC. He will be our starter in 2009 at least so long as he stays healthy and avoids setting records of badness.

As to whether he will actually be our QBOTF, only time will tell. My guess is that Cassel will be to the Chiefs what Hasselbeck was/is to the Seahawks. A QB good enough to lead a team to a SB, but who will never be a big stats guy.

I hope you mean the current version of him. Remember the off field problems he had the first year?:sign0085:

Yes... I agree with the sentiment that he won't necessarily be an 'off the charts' stat guy but will be a consistent performer and a guy that can win games.

I sure hope so. I'm pretty unsure what to predict for him. I think it depends greatly on if we get a ROT and if Albert succeeds.

If our pass protection can meet their potential, then I think Cassel has a very good chance of finding success with us.

I think Cassel will be a good QB for us for years to come. No one can say for sure if he will be good, or even great, but I feel much more confident with Cassel, than I would have with any QB taken in the draft this year.

Almost the same sentiments....He will be solid "with" another good reciever.

I have no idea wether Matt Cassell will be the QBOTF.

But, it sure seems like the FO wants it that way.

Which is too bad because i really liked the way Tyler Thigpen plays football, especially after Gailey cut him loose to run the spread option.

But, Todd Haley has proven before that he'll play the best guy.

I think Cassell will be solid.. I think TG eing gone will hurt. Tyler used him quite a bit last year and Cassell sure who have loved having 88 on the field. I think teams will be able to double up on Bowe and play 1-1 vs our other receivers. Bradley and Engram need to step up and help out Cassell by being consistant, healthy and running good routes. I think Cassells "QB IQ" is relatevely high considering he has been an understudy in a great system and under a good QB...I think he will pick up and learn the system quickly...

I hope Cassel is our QBOTF, I really do. I watched the game tapes from the second half of the season and he looked so good. But it's hard for me to truly believe he is until I can see him play in a Chiefs uni.

This is the thought that keeps running through my head:

"Brady 50 TDs. Cassel 22 TDs. Same offense."

Most everyone keeps forgetting about the number of injuries the Pats OL had last year. Being a newbie Cassel probably held the ball a little too long, but that will improve with game experience. I believe Cassel was sacked like 47 times last year.
Last year was Niswangers first year at Center. He should be better this year, especially with good OG's on both sides. If someone steps up at RT, our OL should be pretty solid.
Haley is known to play the best player. If Tyler spent the off season working on the foot work required to operate from under center, We might have a competition at QB. If Tyler didn't, the job is definitely Cassel's.

How do you think the Chiefs current OL stacks up against NE's injured line from last year? Meaning he is learning a new system, so I think he will hold on to it just a little bit longer than he needs to in KC's system. Keeping in mind that he was a backup and probably knew the system quite well in NE and still held it a little long. Experience will help, but now he is learning a new system...am I making sense?

Making perfect since; good question.

That is a very good question!! However, with Haleys' background I don't think the system will be that much different. Because of the difference in personnel, the plays will be different. But the reads should be the same. The major thing will be weather he trusts his recievers to run exact routes and be were they are supposed to be. I get the impression Cassel really wants to spend extra time working with the recievers, it'll probably depend how many recievers are willing to work that hard to excel.

I agree. Adding to the fact that Cassell is coming into the season as the starter rather than Brady's badckup, which I think makes a huge difference. We have all heard stories years ago about Peyton Manning and Harrison staying after practice and playing catch...I would love hearing that Cassell forms a similiar type bond with Bowe. Cassell was use to Moss and Welker and NE didn't utilize their TE...so maybe the departure of TG won't be as noticable to Cassell. With that being said, he loved his slot receiver because his stud WR (Moss) saw double coverage quite a bit.

OG, Logan Mankins (http://www.nfl.com/players/loganmankins/profile?id=MAN347391) - 16 starts in '07 - 16 starts in '08
OG, Stephen Neal (http://www.nfl.com/players/stephenneal/profile?id=NEA487848) - 8 starts in '07 - 9 starts in '08
OT, Nick Kaczur (http://www.nfl.com/players/nickkaczur/profile?id=KAC567222) - 15 starts in '07 - 14 starts in '08
OT, Matt Light (http://www.nfl.com/players/mattlight/profile?id=LIG425673) - 16 starts in '07 - 16 starts in '08
C, Dan Koppen (http://www.nfl.com/players/dankoppen/profile?id=KOP661089) - 15 starts in '07 - 16 starts in '08

Total starts - 70 in '07 - 71 in '08.

The only difference would be that Russ Hochstein (http://www.nfl.com/players/russhochstein/profile?id=HOC309780) started in place of Neal's missed games in '07, while Billy Yates (http://www.nfl.com/players/billyyates/profile?id=YAT391291) got the nod over Hochstein in '08.

(Hochstein was available, and did play in 15 games in '08.)

Injured O-line is not a legitimate factor here. It's the exact same guys from the previous season.
