Not bad, right?
In the Chiefs 13-10 loss to the Oakland Radiers, Matt Cassel looked at Wade early and often. 29 of Cassel's first 30 passing yards went to him.
This is a nice stat - especially after a few plays with Mark Bradley last week - Wade caught four first downs and got 8 on a 3rd and 9 on another play.
- 3rd and 4: 16 yard reception
- 1st and 10: 5 yard reception
- 3rd and 9: 8 yard reception
- 2nd and 9: 12 yard reception
- 1st and 10: 20 yard reception
- 1st and 10: 11 yard reception

Wade was targeted eight times.
"Bobby did a great job today," Cassel said. "He stepped up; he worked hard all week. He came in and really made a huge impact today. I was happy to see him step up. It was just one of those days that he was getting the ball a lot and he got open and we gave him the ball."
He also returned six punts for a run-of-the-mill 9.0 yards per return.
First week is in the books for Wade and the results are positive.
