AS WELL AS YOU EXPECT FROM ANY QB MAKING 60 MILLION. NO WAY!
Okay, maybe he doesn't "suck", but I think after nearly two decades without a playoff win, it's about time to get an "elite" QB, not one that can just do enough to not screw everything up.
I know I'll get blasted for it, but if this running game doesn't start doing better, it could be a long road for the whole Chiefs offense. (yes, I know we're 7th in the league in rushing, but the fact that Arenas was used as a gimmick to get a TD says something)
WHO CARES how much money Cassel makes???? It's not like he is costing us cap space and keeping us from getting or keeping quality players. How much Cassel gets paid is between Cassel's agent, Pioli and Hunt.
Like any other Chiefs fan, I wish we had someone of the caliber of Montana, Staubach, Elway or any of the other elite QBs from the past. BUT WE DON'T!!! What we have is Cassel!
If you think Cassel is the wrong QB for the Chiefs, then complain about Pioli, NOT Cassel
Meantime, with Cassel as QB we won the AFC West last year and in 2 days we'll be playing for a share of 1st place in the AFC West! And we're doing it with both Charles and Moeaki out for the year. Pretty impressive as far as I am concerned.
I'd be real interested to hear who the Cassel haters think we should pick up to replace Cassel......
Until I hear that then all these complaints are just WHINING!!!!

I am still firmly behind Cassel. I would add, however, that he has shown "elite" skills many times. But then there are other times he looks like he is going for the Brodie Croyle Award of Incompetence. I think it is his nervousness from his first season here and getting the shiite kicked out of him every snap. I want desperately for the elite Cassel to show up every game and I really think he can and will as our whole offense improves. But I won't discount, completely, those who are genuinely upset by the not-so-elite Cassel. I just think we all need to rally behind him and expect great things. There is something to the power of positive thinking.
