Cassel is strong first step for Chiefs

Postby madaslives911 » Sat Feb 28, 2009 8:04 pm

The acquisition of Matt Cassel should provide a big boost to Kansas City when compared to Tyler Thigpen and the oft-injured Brodie Croyle, who would have been in line to compete for the starting quarterback position before Cassel was acquired. Croyle completed 57.7 percent of his passes at a paltry 5.4 yards per attempt in his 13 career games, and Thigpen averaged 6.2 yards per attempt but completed just 54.8 percent in 14 games in 2008.

With New England, Cassel completed 63.4 percent of his passes for 7.2 yards per attempt. Cassel will not have Randy Moss and Wes Welker to help him, but Kansas City does have one of the all-time great tight ends in Tony Gonzalez. WR Dwayne Bowe has shown All-Pro ability when he is playing with a QB who can actually get him the ball. Thigpen passed for a good 18 TDs in 14 games with the KC receivers. The fact is the Chiefs lost four games where they scored over 24 points or more. Their awful defense is arguably a bigger problem than their offense.
