Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel talked with Steven St. John and Nate Bukaty on 810 WHB's Border Patrol on Monday morning after the 19-9 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. As usual, there was some good and some bad after the game.
"There's no doubt the Chiefs are ready to compete in the AFC," Cassel said. "We'll take a lot of good out of it but at the same time there's also a lot to work on."
Cassel completed 16-of-29 passes for 156 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. He said at his post-game press conference and on the Border Patrol that the game plan was designed to run the ball and control the clock throughout the game.
On his own performance, he says, "I haven't really been able to go in and watch the film yet. I'll do that in an hour or so. I felt personally I stuck to the game plan and performed well and efficient. Unfortunately I didn't make all the plays I wanted to make but at the same time I did the best I could do and that's all I could ask for."
It's hard to fully evaluate his performance when we don't know what the Chiefs asked him to do but "well and efficient" aren't words most are using after we saw a Chiefs offense go touchdown-less against the Colts. He didn't turn the ball over, which is a plus.
Thoughts on Cassel's self-evaluation? Does this change what you thought of his performance?
