Yep, you Cassel supporters are right... Cassel just needs more time and experience... I mean it's not part of the fundamental basics to see Thomas Jones wide-open in the flat 10 yards away and throw a worm-killer into the dirt 3 yards in front of the intended target... that throw is something a Pro in the NFL has to learn over many years... you can't expect a young QB like Cassel to be able to be making those sort of soft-n-easy 12 yd passes out in the flat to RBs... nope, that is a pass few novice or benchseat QBs can make... that's one of the ones they do at combines to test a QBs arm strength even (so I heard) forget the 20 yd outs, scouts want to see that 10 yd lateral in the flat, that's the special skill few possess...
That's why last nights deceptive win is so non-developing... had the Chiefs still lost after having those two favorable and unbankable TD's... the spotlight would be on Cassel's inability to move the offense with bad throws and bad decisions... yet, the Chiefs squeek one out after two "plays-of-chance" and we all put on our rose-colored glasses and choose to ignore the guy who seems to miss the broad-side-of-a-barn more often than he threads-the-needle, that is when he's not patting the ball and taking a sack.
Q: What's first on your list of things to do?
Charlie Weis: "The first thing I wanted to do was help fix the quarterback,"
~roughly translated: "I'm trying to make shinola out of turdola, anybody got an extra $63 million laying around?"
