Matt Cassel vs Green Bay - AWESOME!!!!!


In watching the tape from last night's game, Cassel was AWESOME, maybe the best I've ever seen him, at least in a Chief uniform.  Of course the stats show 4-9 with 1 INT, but look at every pass, and you get the true picture. 
1-10-GB 33 (13:18) (Shotgun) 7-M.Cassel pass incomplete short right to 83-J.Urban.
Perfect pass, right where it was supposed to be.  

2-10-GB 33 (13:12) (No Huddle, Shotgun) 7-M.Cassel pass incomplete short left to 83-J.Urban.
Perfect pass, right where it was supposed to be.  
 
3-10-GB 33 (13:08) (No Huddle, Shotgun) 7-M.Cassel pass incomplete deep right to 82-D.Bowe [56-N.Barnett].
 Perfect pass, right where it was supposed to be.   If Bowe had got his feet down, it's a TD.  As an added bonus, this was the best pocket presence I've ever seen from Cassel.  He felt the pressure, drifted to his right, and threw a great pass on the move, something he is usually pretty poor at.

2-10-GB 37 (8:38) (No Huddle, Shotgun) 7-M.Cassel pass short right intended for 82-D.Bowe INTERCEPTED by 24-J.Bush at GB 23. 24-J.Bush to GB 32 for 9 yards (46-T.Castille).
Perfect pass, right where it was supposed to be.  D -Bowe's body was contorted, and he fell down, and couldn't keep his arms up, and the pass whizzed by where he was supposed to be, and was INT.   

1-10-KC 38 (7:14) (Shotgun) 7-M.Cassel pass incomplete deep right to 82-D.Bowe [96-M.Neal].
Didn't see this pass in my initial review.  For arguments sake, lets say this was a bad pass by Cassel.  Someone else could enlighten me if it actually was. 

So in reality, Cassel was dead on target with 8 of his 9 throws, threw the ball well enough to get plenty of YAC on the catches that were made, showed pocket presence and ability to throw on the run.  He looked like the NE Matt Cassel.  I'm not particalarly a Cassel fan or detractor, but after watching this tape, I think he might have turned the corner.  I'm am very enthused to see if this was just a great game by him, or a milestone in beginning to become what he was in NE, or better.
