    The more I think about the better of we are with Cassel under center.

    I like Thigpen alot, but I now see the light why he is not really a starter. He lacks leadership I think. This is why Cassel will be our man.

    Speaking of Cassel, I heard a rumor about his number being 7.

    Thigs problem is his completion percentage. I think Cassel is more of a leader. Trust me, I was rather pissed off about the Matt Cassel deal that went down at first.
    Obviously there is no comparison between Brady and Cassel with the exception of 2009 salary. If Cassel is or isn't more of a leader than Thigpen is purely speculation at this point.

Brady: 16-0, 68.9 completion %, 4806 yards, 50 TD, 8 INT, 117.2 rating. Cassel: 10-5 (as a starter), 63.4%, 3693 yards, 21 TD, 11 INT, 89.4 rating. Still Cassel did put up decent numbers but he was playing on an elite Super Bowl contending team.

    Tyler Thigpen: 1-10, 54.8%, 2608 yards, 18 TD, 12 INT, 76 rating. Similar numbers to Cassel, with the exception of his record. Difference being Thigpen was playing on a lousy team.

    In my mind they are both pretty equal. I do like Thigpen's scrambling ability and his toughness (I hope Cassel can take a hit, this isn't the Patriots O-line). Until we see them both under center during training camp and the preseason it is too hard to tell which QB is better in my opinion.[/left]
    Comparing numbers is all well and good, but I think this has more to do with Haley and Pioli thinking that Cassel will be a better fit being the QB to run Haley's offense. If we are going to be a pass-happy offense, I see Cassel as a smart, accurate passer. You need a guy who can make the smart decision quickly and make a nice, accurate throw. Plus, Cassel is mobile enough in the pocket to buy time and make the throws necessary to continue a drive.

    Rivers is still to child like tho. Thats something Cassel does have over him.
    Rivers IS pretty talented I do agree, Look at the injuries Da Bolts suffered last year and go to there fourm and hear what they are saying. They are worried. No major moves, will there team hold up, who knows? I think we have more young talent and a good young QB, it may take time, but I Know we will get there and by the end of this season Chiefs Fans Everyehere will be saying, Oh yea baby! Here we come!!!!

    This is the problem that happens with the modern day technology, everybody forgets about the basic way of doing mathematical equations. Fingers and toes!
