Matt Cassel will start for Chiefs vs. Chargers

Peter Aiken

It's official.

It's official: The Matt Cassel era is back.

The Chiefs rarely do well in San Diego so this move probably won't affect much. Brady Quinn didn't look much better than Cassel in his time as the Chiefs quarterback and Cassel turns it over like crazy so I'm not looking forward to this game very much.

Whether it's Cassel or Quinn, the key to the game against the Chargers remains the same -- run the ball. Jamaal Charles only had five carries last week -- eight total touches -- so that will have to change dramatically if the Chiefs are going to have a chance.

The next question after this is who starts for the team when Quinn is healthy. We're assuming it's Quinn -- that's what Romeo has said in the past -- but we won't know until Week 10 hits.
