I am one that cheered once I saw Cassel was alive and walking. I don't care the reason he leaves KC I just want him to leave.
I would love him to go backup Manning or Maybe go be QB for the Faiders .. I will not ever cheer for someone to be hurt bad. I will and did cheer for Cassel, who was ok, to be out for the season or career. Don't go away mad just go away. Again I could care less if his career is over just as long as his career in KC is over.
I do think Cassel is a nice guy, I wish him well in his life. I think now would be a good time for him to retire with the money he was given and hasn't earned. He knew when he stepped on the field he could be injured and him being injured lightly to get him to go away.... I am ok with that. Do I want him paralyzed or dead absolutely not ... it aint worth that for the Chiefs to be a good team ...
Good Luck Cassel and don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Trust me, there are lots of players on this team that aren't happy with the fan base right now. And I don't blame them. We've had a great reputation through the years as a fan base. But the last 6 months have been embarrassing. Not only are the Chiefs playing bad, we've seen our own fans boo Matt Cassel at the celebrity softball game on national tv. Fescoe had his rant that got national attention, then the banner being flown, and finally the crowd cheering the injury of our team leader. It's a sad day to be a Chiefs fan.
I just heard on Chiefs Red Zone here in KC they summed it up. The fans aren't mad because the team is losing games, the fans are getting mad AT the franchise. I do not believe that the fans were cheering him getting hurt as much as they were cheering that he was ok and he wasn't going to be playing ...
As far as Eric Winston he can kiss my white .... Bill Maas stated that feels that the Eric Winston was wrong .. he feels that the fans were cheering not because Cassel was hurt but cheering that even though it took this they were finally getting the QB change that we want.
Our chiefs were in this game when they were 7 point dogs and betting on baltimore was a sure thing. I have a lot of friends that lost money on this game and I mean a lot of money. Our D shut down a good offense and our rushing offense kicked the crap out of baltimores infamous D.
No team has had a 100 yard rusher in a half against baltimore since the bears did it 1998. Thats a bloody statement. This team is bouncing back. Despite the loss we should be talking about how well our guys did.
Insteat of the I hate cassel crap and I'm happy to see him go. We are known to the nfl like st louis is to the baseball world. We are a proud franchise and to boo our own guy when he got hurt is absolutely classless.
I think if the fans cheered Cassel being hurt then that is bush, and inappropriate. But if Winston showed half that fire he showed today after the game as on the field day in and day out, then maybe we would not be at this point.
I have been a Chiefs fan my whole life, never will like another team. But they need to crap or get off the pot with this team, I am sick of mediocre, I am sick of "If you are not 100% with this team, your against it"
These guys need to reach deep and figure out how to fix this. From top to bottom
Winston hit the nail on the head. Glad he said it. Cheering a player being knocked out is a very sad statement of the "humanity" in today's world.
I thought RC should have put in Quinn before he did. It was time to give him a chance, but cheering an injury is sick.
