    Croyle isnt the guy either, but he gives us a better chance than Cassell.

    Croyle just cant stay healthy.

    But Cassell has no pocket presence and cant throw a pass.

    I dont want to admit it but we all need to so we can move on. I dont want it to be the situation where we realize this after this D is gone and its too late.

    I finally came this conclusion after Cassell simply fumbled the ball. He didnt get it knocked out or anything. Just slipped out of his hands. and then he recovered it. only to slipped out of his person again. I know many of you saw what i saw and came to that conclusion on that play too.

    I tend to give guys three years, but this is Cassel's third year, I count the last year in New England. This is his make or break year and so far it is more break than make.

    He has to step up his level of play, however, when he does make plays, he has to have people actually help him too. This game was not completely on Cassel, while he did not have a great game, we would not be saying nearly as much about it had Bowe caught that key pass.


    Are you man enough? Eric Berry? Apparently Not!

    I think we need to upgrade both QB and the starting WR positions, but that's not until next year

    I think by the end of the year we will find out how good or bad he is.

    Well, it's impossible to just "move on" from Cassel. He was already guaranteed with $28M in the 6-year contract, and the team pretty much have to stick with him for at least 3 to 4 years at least. Comparing Cassel's contract with Jamarcus Russel's contract( $31.5M guaranteed in 6 years), you see even the Raiders have to stick with the inept Russel for at least 3 years. It is really a business decision.

    Cassel has quiet a bank roll on his contract. We have to give him until the end of the season, I mean really, what else can we do. It's make it or break it. It's all up to him just as it is with Bowe. As long as they are Chiefs I support them.Pioli and Haley had a good offseason and they will do so again next year. We are pretty much stuck with what we have.

    He will be one o the highest payed players in the NFL next year.

    Bookmark this thread, when he gets cut for salary cap next year (or renogotiates) I want to come back and say that I said so~

    He hasnt played well. Yes Bowe dropped a pass but Cassell is in the bottom third of starting QB's in the league, we wont pay him as a top tier guy, like his contract demands.

    I agree.

    That's not true. Cassel's contract was structured with lots of up front money. Brilliant by Pioli if you ask me to get all of the guaranteed money out of the way. That in my opinion says that Pioli did that knowing that if Cassel didn't pan out, he's not on the hook to owe him much after 2010. Cassel is owed less than $5Mil next year.

    I should clarify, less than $5Mil of what he is owed will count against the cap. I could see him getting cut though to avoid the $8M roster bonus.

    yes, lets start our backup, get him hurt as we all know he will and then go back to Cassel next week and no longer have a back up so if by a chance Cassel gets hurt we got to???????

    Croyle's playing time should be limited to a minimum number of games, only as a replacement for Cassel until het gets heathly.

    Besdes, Croyle has never won a NFL game and it won't make a difference if the receivers drop the ball anyway.
