    alot of us have expectations of this years team to be alot better than last years.and i think the chiefs have made huge strides in upgrading there team and coaches.but it is all going to come down to how well matt cassell can perform imo.
    listening to collin cowherd this morning he picked the chiefs as a lock to win more games than four saying they could double there wins from last year.and he also stated that he loved the direction the chiefs are heading in i agree. with improvements to the o-line,wr,db's running game and the coaching staff.it is crucial for matt to step it up this year if not it is time to start looking for his replacement

    Sorry,

    I am ticked off about what happened last year.

    Pay a less than average QB to be the franchise HERO, and his numbers were crap.

    The defense was better last year, and had we kept and went with Thigpen, we would hav ewon at least 4 more games for a lot less money.

    Pretty soon, the Chiefs are going to be talked about in the same sentence and meaning as the Faiders.....
    The next game is the most important one of the season !!

    that is way overboard. thigpen was not close to being the answer i am not sure if he is even in the leauge anymore.cassell can be a good qb and i am expecting big improvements from him this year.even if he is not the answer that is laughable comparing this franchise to the gaiders.i guarantee the chiefs will be much better than they were last year cassell included.if he is not improved this year then we can throw him under the bus. untill then i will keep my expectations of improvement from him

    The thing a lot of people forget is that Matt only started 11 games in NE prior to coming here.

    With all the chaos that was last year I can't blame him for holding the ball too long sometimes. Remember how well they played the Steelers and the donks victory.

    This will be a good/great team and with the developement coaches we have now. Matt will continue to improve as will all the guys working under Weis.

    I would rather pay Matt 34 mil guaranteed than have Bradford at 50? mil guaranteed with a repaired shoulder and never played an NFL down.

    Cassell has proven he can be a good passer and lead a team, just look at what he did with NE. Cassell is not the key directly. The O line makes swiss cheese look solid. They all are under-performers. I hope they have worked at their craft this off season, because Cassell can't throw a pass with 4 D linemen, 2 linebackers and a pair of safeties all converging before he takes his second step. I really think anyone who would possibly blame Cassell for being overwhelmed by the defense EVERY SINGLE DOWN really doesn't have any grasp of the game.

    the 0-line has been improved (on paper anyway)we will see how they play together.and some of what cassell showed last year was not all the o-lines fault. there were times he had plenty of time in the pocket and either overthrew his receiver or held on to the ball way to long.i expect these things to be corrected by him this year and the coaches feel the same. last year was definantly a step backwards for cassell compared to his year in new england.and if he does not show definante signs of improvement on his behalf not just the o-lines i do not see haley and weiss wanting to stick with him.i think cassell will be fine this year with lots of improvemant and that we can blame last year partly on the o-line and partly on the fact he was in a new system with young players.and no running game while larry was here anyways

    Wow, yeah, I think you need to wake up a little bit. Thigpen was a joke and proved it during preseason.

    Well, in my humble opinion...I respectively disagree that "Cassel is the key". I believe the entire team is 'the key', including coaching staff. :)

    Windwalker...I don't believe Joe Montana could've put up high numbers going against all the odds Cassel had to go against last year. Lordy, we had a new GM, Head Coach, firing of the offensive coordinator, playbooks tossed out from the get go...Bowe suspended, LJ traded/fired, I could go on.

    respected we all know there is a lot more than just cassels play that will effect this team.but if he does not play well it will be a long year. it would set us back bigtime if he does not produce .like i said i think he will improve but if he don't it could get ugly.he seems like he is going about it the right way studying film and admitting last year was not a great one acknowledging room for improvement.he seams like he is up for the challenge

    In that aspect I agree with you. However...If he starts playing that badly, I think they'll pull him, put in Croyle, before they let him make it a "long year".

    He was looking good at camp on Sunday, and has much fewer obstacles this season than last. As it stands now, I have faith in him...for many of the reasons you noted, he's obviously very determined & dedicated to leading our Chiefs to a winning record. He was one of the few who worked towards improvement the entire off season. :)
