    Default Matt Cassell Evaluation


    0 Not allowed!
    Just got done watching Kansas City Chiefs Matt Cassell on NFL replay as he played the Colts.

    In this game Ive seen:

    1). Matt has a good ability to scramble when all else fails, but he needs to learn to go knees first or hes going to get hurt.

    2). He will look off Safeties to get a wide out more open.

    3). A lot of his yards come from throwing to a reciever and letting him do the work ( at least in this game ). But with a Wes Welker, thats a no-brainer.

    4). I love his pocket presence. He is aware of his drops and even in shotgun goes back into the pocket. Although at times he seems too anxious or figety, you can tell hes been sacked a lot.

    5). He will rely on his recievers and throw the ball up there and let the recievers and DBs play keepaway. Most of the times in this game for not. Which is why is really sucks that we dont have TG.

    6). Not impressed by his "comeback at the end of the game" ability (at least not in this game). A lot of it to do with #5.

    This is just base on this game. And he held his own against a former championship team with a lot of talent losing 18-15.

    If you missed it they will re-air it again at 10:00 tonight (Sunday) and tommorow at noon (Central time). NFL network.

    What do you think?

    I think a lot of how successful he's going to be will be determined by:

    a. His offensive line's ability to pass block, and especially safeguard that blind side (Mr. Albert).

    b. His running game's ability to pound and grind out yards, as this will do wonders for the passing game. If they have to respect the running game, defenses have to guess what Cassell's going to do.

    This is the ultimate in team sports, and so I think that Cassell's eventual success or failure with the chiefs is going to be based on the entirety of the talent around him. If he's always getting sacked and running for his life, it's going to be ugly.

    On the other hand, if he's always getting 2nd or 3rd and short because of the running game, and has a big red wall protecting him? Good things for Mr. Cassell.

    I think Cassell will have a similar year to what Trent Green had when he first came over. Green had Gonzales and nothing much else to throw to. Cassell has Bowe and nothing much to throw to

    I wish we had Joe Montana for a QB's coach; he was a master at placing the ball so that only the receiver had a shot at catching it.

    For Cassel to succeed, Bowe is really gonna have to show up and stop dropping balls.

    I think we shouldn't evaluate him until after he has played in a red and gold jersey.

    Yup, I think that the "wait and see" philosophy is in order. IMO

    This is the guy we've got and here are his traits.

    I would appreciate any scouting anybody has on Matt Cassell thus far.


    I dont care if its with the Patriots. I WANT TO KNOW!

    Thanks.
