Are they really who we think they are???

Many of you waking up this morning are thinking that the Chiefs are on the fast track to the playoffs. I am also leaning towards that opinion, but I must warn you all to still be a little cautious. The Chiefs played an all around good game yesterday, but not what we need if we want to compete in the playoffs. I guess what bothers me the most is that the press here in Kansas City is all of a sudden on a kick that Matt Cassel is suddenly playing very well. I disagree.

Cassel is still the same guy he was a year ago and the same guy who can't seem to find the right guy when needed in the open field. He just managed yesterday to get it to a few guys in the open field yesterday. We must cherish the opportunities we have been given the first 7 weeks of the season thanks to our running game and running game alone. Matt Cassel would be the same guy he was the first 8 weeks of the season last year if it wasn't for our ability to run the ball on a consistent basis. Cassel is a game manager, period. The press need to get off its bandwagon approach and keep our fans heads out of the clouds.

Oakland has a stout defense. Denver can throw the ball. And San Diego is just in a rut right now. Our road to success is more difficult than many of you believe. Our remaining schedule may look like the 2nd easiest remaining based on strength, but we still have a road game in San Diego, 2 matchups with both Denver and Oakland, a road game in Seattle, a tough home game against Tennessee and don't overlook the Buffalo Bills, who may have lost to the Ravens yesterday, but put up 34 points against them. They can throw the ball. I have faith in our secondary to bend and not break. But you can only bend so much. Our pass defense is very suspect. We get leads and they seem to disappear.

We all know they did a good job yesterday in the second half, but we were going against a tractor driving, corn picking quarterback who wasn't even on the roster a week ago. Cheer with pride my fellow fans, just know all is not well.
