Cassel CAN scramble, at one time he was leading the team in rushing yards. I guaratee you that he is being told not to run as much. I would bet dollars to donuts Haley is telling him to stand firm and trust the other playmakers on the team and to only run in the last resort.
Vince Young and Michael Vick he is not!
Cassel was 2nd in the NFL in rushing among QBs to only Tyler Thigpen last year.
I couldn't get over how easy he was to talk too, awesome night. I hope he sticks around for a while.
Great story Nigeriannightmare, I wasn't a second in doubt that he is a gentleman and a standup guy.
Now I just hope that the team can build around him this next offseason and the comming offseasons.
But everytime I see him take a big hit on Sundays it hurts me a little too.
I was pretty high on Croyle when he was given the reins a few years ago, and I really don't want to see Cassel's chance to shine, whisked away like it was Croyle.
But I think he has already proven, that he is not as brittle as Croyle is, and I hope he can be as good as he looked to NE last year.
Ok were to begin.
What herm and CP did was they went far to young. I think that now they will even admit to that. You can not just sign in plug in players. Thats what Vermile did. Was it better to watch yes but the Chiefs were never able to win a championship doing that. Besides Randy Moss you heard very few Huge name free agent signings by the pats. They drafted well thats why they were so good for so long. See tom brady. Building through the draft is a much more proven way to build a team that can contend year in and year out. It takes time but Its the more proven way.
To talk about a coach that never played is just pointless. If you no the game of football then it realy does not matter if you had played or not . I cant say that Todd Haley is going to be a good head coach. I cant say that pioli is going to be a good GM with the chiefs. But its far to early to say that they wont. They took over a team that was far to young they brought in some Vets to help the young guys but to build this team is going to take time. End of story.
Pioli has three times the number of Lombardi trophies as the Chiefs organization for a reason.
Coach Haley grew up with his dad Dick Haley watching professional football film. Seems like a better way to learn football than playing pop warner.
He has never been a head coach before, not at any level, he has never had to do the things that a head coach has to do then for this rookie coach to also take on OC duties, well that is too much.
This team needed a coach that knows how to build a team, work a team, and run a team, not one who will learn on the job.
That makes it where we have inexperienced players and no one to really teach them the ropes. A bad situation to be in for now and the future.
