He should take the responsbility, at the end of the day it's his job to manage the game, move the chains, and put points on the board. The only time he did that this year was in the first half against atlanta.

It's up to the qb to offset mistakes made by his teammates, that is why he gets the most money, if the starting qb can't do that then he shouldn't be playing.
It depends on the QB & just exactly what type of mistakes he has to overcome. Matt Schaub couldn't offset his teams mistakes that were being made when they hosted GB and Aaron Rodgers ripped the Texans defense with 6 TD passes. Yet, he's still a pretty good QB.

On the other hand, if you were referring to the way the Chiefs have folded in games this year with Cassel at the helm whenever something went wrong, that is true. Unfortunately, he couldn't offset the mistakes, and often he did add to them. The biggest problem was Pioli handing him that big contract before he ever set foot on the field. It should have been a more modest 3 or 4 year deal and some legit competition should have been brought in during the last 3 or 4 years, but wasn't.

Like everybody else, I'd love for the Chiefs to have Joe Montana in his prime. It amazes me that some retards over at kansascity.com say that Elway was the best QB ever. Elway was not in Montana's class, ever. Nobody was.
