I am one that is worried that Matt Cassel is not going to take the Kansas City Chiefs to the Promised Ground. Matt has looked many things at many times in his two years here. The Quarterback that led the New England Patriots to 10 wins in 2008 had showed brief flashes of how he did that in 2009 as the Chiefs won 4 games. 2010 was far better but the Final regular season game against Oakland and the Playoff game against Baltimore brought all those doubts back. So I looked for some hope in stats. Matt Cassel has been good at times in the passing game, the Chiefs think he is broken. Charlie Weis was here to fix Matt, Jim Zorn is here to help Matt, Todd Haley is here to....

In 2008, Matt Cassel had Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Jabar Gaffney, Ben Watson, Dave Thomas, and a cadre of RB's to throw to. In 2010, Cassel had Dwayne Bowe, Dexter McCluster, Tony Moeaki, and a few RB's to throw to. With the addition of Jon Baldwin, Do we have enough targets yet? Do you think with a second WR that those passes to the Left will generate more Touchdowns over Interceptions?
