The Kansas City Chiefs finally got their preseason win beating the Green Bay Packers by a score of 17-13. After the game, it appears RB Jackie Battle is a lock to make the roster, the defensive line seems to be getting better and the running backs are, as we thought, pretty freakin' awesome.
And then there's Matt Cassel.
On Friday morning following Thursday night's game, his 4-of-9 for 58 yards performance has generated....no excitement.
"Let’s all acknowledge the insignificance of preseason games, but at the very least Cassel missed a chance to get the fan base excited and the locker room confident," writes Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star. "While Aaron Rodgers didn’t even suit up for Green Bay, the Chiefs gave Cassel three series and saw mostly dinks and dunks and slow reads."
