Final Word On Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers Game

We're starting to move on from the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers Monday Night Football game but wanted to give our final thoughts on the game.

Clearly there were some positives to come out of this game including, but not limited to:

  • The overall play of the defense and the second half adjustments made against Antonio Gates.
  • The rookies in general. They accounted for two of the three touchdowns and a couple more big returns.
  • The Arrowhead Stadium crowd was absolutely rockin'.
  • The rest of the country noticing the Chiefs.

There was, however, one bad part of the game and that's Matt Cassel's play. There are a few theories on why he couldn't hit 70 yards passing -- just a bad game, the receivers or Todd Haley and Charlie Weis' conservative game plan.

This is becoming a pattern with Cassel -- from the 2009 season at times to the four preseason games -- so I don't think it's an anomaly. While I think this is a huge win for the Chiefs and could signal good things to come, the story line out of this game that's likely to follow the Chiefs all season will be Matt Cassel's play.

We'll see next week against a poor Browns defense how Cassel performs.
