I was at the game today, and what I saw Cassel show, was that he took every play serious. He was obviously upset at every in-completion or failed run. Never did he show an "oh well, only one play" attitude. He showed the urgency and determination to win the game.
I tried to say this week 6 but nobody wanted to have any of it :). Matt showed that he is a dog gamn stud today, playing 1 1/2 weeks after an appendectomy and playing well.
Seeing him lead the team out of the tunnel today he had more of leadership mojo than I think I have seen.
We got some smiles from the D following the National Anthem, the game tone was set at that point.
Nothing better than seeing and hearing the chop as the opposing fans are leaving their stadium!
Big congrats to Matt
Casselo answered all the questions in a big way today IMO. Eleven days after emergency surgery he he performed admirably today!
What I loved today about Cassel was his leadership. Early when the Chiefs were struggling he kept at. Never mind that we had 4 more 3rd down drops...3 of which were in the "are you kidding me" category. Cassel is like the anti-Rivers, he cares, leaves it all on the field but also doesn't show up his teammates when they make mistakes...great job Matt!
Ive been saying for a long time that this kid is tough as nails. He's a fighter. And he's also playing some incredible football.
of note in the post game interview he said he's played his entire career with the appendix and this was the first game played without it. ok. hmmmm
like it would make a diff ???? that was funny
