Chiefs QB Cassel Seeing More Penalties With Haley

Bill Williamson of ESPN.com and ESPN Stats & Information have come up with a pretty interesting statistic that may or may not mean anything (great lead-in, right?).

Last season with Todd Haley calling the plays, Cardinals QB Kurt Warner received 11 penalties, which would lead the league right now. 

Currently, Warner has just three penalties, which puts him towards the bottom of the league.

Last season, then Patriots QB Matt Cassel had just three penalties as well.

With Todd Haley calling the plays this season, Cassel has 8 penalties, which is the third highest in the NFL.

Haley's obviously the connection but why?  I'm not quite sure. Cassel has four delay of game penalties, which is about fourth in the NFL.

Is Haley not putting his quarterback in the best position to get the ball snapped?  I'm not exactly sure.  Does it mean anything?  Again, I'm not exactly sure.

What I do know is that just because you're penalized doesn't mean you're a bad quarterback. Two of the top quarterbacks in the NFL are first and second on this list - Carson Palmer and Brett Favre.
