Cassel: Completions-327 Attempts-516 Percentage- 63.4 Yards- 3,693 Tds-21 Int-11
Plus 270 Rushing Yards with 2 TDS
Thigpen: Completions-230 Attempts-420 Percentage-54.8 Yards-2,608 Tds-18 Int-12 Plus 386 Rushing yards with 1 TD and a recieving TD
Very similar stats here. Cassel did better overall but had one of the best teams to work with. Far better offensive line and a better WR core. Oh, and Cassel had a lot more playing time. Croyle hasn’t proven anything but he can stay injured. Thigpen will stay on the team.
Cassel is a good QB and will make things happen. He is what we are looking for in a franchise QB. Croyle should be on the team but as a 3rd string until he can prove himself and stay healthy. Cause if he can do that then he is the type of QB we want. Thigpen is amazing on foot and goal line situations and is durable. This is just my take on things. My first post here at AP. Go Chiefs!
